Notes

A brief history of the regiment is given in The Regimental History of Cromwell's Army by Sir Charles Firth and Godfrey Davies, Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1940

Thomas Coote was a brother of Sir Charles Coote, Second Baronet. His regiment was probably raised in 1649. Whether it was raised before or after Sir Charles’ storm of Coleraine in the September is uncertain. Thereafter it formed the garrison of Coleraine and was disbanded in 1653.
