 Conyers Lord Darcy and Conyers was Colonel of a Yorkshire Trained Band Regiment of Foot. His eldest son Sir Conyers Darcy, led a blue-coated regiment of foot to join the Oxford Army in 1643 and was severely wounded at First Newbury though he survived. Command passed to his brother, Marmaduke Darcy. It’s possible that the earlier engagements noted refer to Lord Darcy’s Trained Band regiment. ​ Conyers Lord Darcy and Conyers was Colonel of a Yorkshire Trained Band Regiment of Foot.

 +Under blew Colours raised for the King,
 +Which Regiment he doth to Skipton bring,
 +With these conjoyn’d ,’gainst Thornton hall we go,
 +Make an attempt out thence to beat the foe,
 +But neither House, nor Barns,​scarce once hit were,
 +At twentie shots by our blinde Cannoniere;
 +Whilst some Dragoons alight on foot to play,
 +Some of our Horse the foes had stoln away;
 +Only some Barns we at this bout did fire,
 +And thence for Skipton with some loss retire.
 +To Thornton Hall,that Country that lay near’

 +As with her Traine the Queen lat Southward went,
 +Bravely she had regain’d Burton upon Trent,
 +Of Darcys Blew Coats some the River wade,
 +Whilst that their Collonel had his entrance made,
 +Upon the Bridge their Cannon leapt upon
 +This is the Kings,said he,thence nobly on
 +His men he leads into the very Town,
 +Their Rampiers and theit Bulwarks all thrown down,
 +Many of the Defendants there do dye,
 +And Burton taken by their Gallantry.
