Notes

Probably the remains of other Royalist foot regiments were reduced into or brigaded together with Belasyse’s after their disastrous defeat at Selby. It appears that Belasyse’s ‘Selby foot’ remained in garrison at York during Marston Moor. Belasyse later became governor of Newark.

Belasyse had previously raised a regiment of foot for the Oxford Army, Lord Belasyse’s (Oxford) Regiment of Foot, that remained in the South under Sir Theophilus Gilby
