Notes

Specific references to Tyldesley's dragoons dry up after Captain Blundell had his thigh bone shattered by a musket ball in the assault on Lancaster1), although Royalist Ordnance Papers mention that ten carbines were issued to his regiment of horse on 18th November 1643 and it is fair to assume that these were destined for the dragoons.
