 There is a question over the original command of the regiment. All references to the raising of the regiment in the Calendar of State Papers relating to Ireland (CSPI) only refer to Colonel Grey with no first name. In August 1646 some two months after receiving his commission it was reported that "​Colonel Grey, in his journey towards Lincoln is fallen very sick, and not like to recover."​((CSPI 1633-47 p500)) Whilst in May 1647 it was stated that "Col Grey may transfer the command of his regiment to his brother, who is now in Ireland with it"​.((CSPI 1647-60 p748)) However the regiment was certainly based on the [[parliamentarian:​foot-regiments:​thomas-rainsborough|regiment]] Henry Grey had commanded in Lincolnshire,​ and Henry was clearly commanding it in Ireland.((see for example N.A. SP28/​48/​29)) and died at it's head at Knocknanuss. ​ There is a question over the original command of the regiment.
