 +The Regiment was originally raised by William Lord Paget and taken over by Bolle who led the Regiment at Edgehill. William Pagets Commission is in the Sutherland Collection.

 Quite a few foot Regiments that fought at Naseby were subsequently re-recruited in Wales from July 1645, including William Murray’s, Appleyard’s Tillier’s,​ John Pawlett’s,​ Sir Jacob Astley’s, Duke of York’s, King’s Lifeguard, Sir Henry Bard’s, Sir Bernard Astley’s, Robert Broughton'​s and Lisle’s((from original research by Victor Judge, BCW user 1642)). Quite a few foot Regiments that fought at Naseby were subsequently re-recruited in Wales from July 1645, including William Murray’s, Appleyard’s Tillier’s,​ John Pawlett’s,​ Sir Jacob Astley’s, Duke of York’s, King’s Lifeguard, Sir Henry Bard’s, Sir Bernard Astley’s, Robert Broughton'​s and Lisle’s((from original research by Victor Judge, BCW user 1642)).
  
 No detail is known of any troops raised or led by Lisle in 1648, although he was known to have been buying horses and arms in London in 1647 or 1648 ((Calendar of the Proceedings of the Committee for the Advance of Money, Part II, p.1118.)); an indigent cavalry officer from Essex who in 1663 claimed Lisle as his commander, must have served in 1648 as Lisle did not command cavalry during the First Civil War. ((Indigent Officers list, 1663; //Indigent Officers - Civil War Oficers Rewarded by Charles II//, p.94. Tyger'​s Head Books: 2015)) Mentions of his '​regiment'​ during the Second Civil War probably refer to raw Kent recruits put under his command during the uprising, and subsequently at Colchester. No detail is known of any troops raised or led by Lisle in 1648, although he was known to have been buying horses and arms in London in 1647 or 1648 ((Calendar of the Proceedings of the Committee for the Advance of Money, Part II, p.1118.)); an indigent cavalry officer from Essex who in 1663 claimed Lisle as his commander, must have served in 1648 as Lisle did not command cavalry during the First Civil War.
