Service History


  • October: Taking of Dartmouth


  • April to June: Siege of Lyme Regis


  • October: Skirmish at Harberton?


  • January: Besieged at Dartmouth


At some point suppressed a rising at Torbay. Some soldiers from Sir Henry Cary’s Regiment of Foot claimed to have previously served under Seymore.

In October 1645 Sir Hugh Pollard sent Turner with 100 foot and 20 horse to disperse clubmen at Harberton but his force was defeated. Possibly the detachment Pollard sent to Harberton included some of Edward Seymore’s Regiment and was led by Lt Col Turner.
