 +The Regiment marched at the end of July with Colonel Henry Tillier'​s to Rupert'​s aid in Bristol. See [[royalist:​foot-regiments:​henry-tillier|Henry Tillier'​s Regiment]] for Charles I's letter. William Pretty was in Bristol at the surrender and also later surrendered at Raglan Castle.
 +
 +Captain Lieutenant Henry Cook claimed to have fought at Marlborough under Pretty, this is unlikely to be Wilmot'​s storm of Marlborough in 1642, as Pretty was a Parliamentarian then. There were two later skirmishes at Marlborough;​ one in June 1645 with the Royalists under Dowett, the other in January 1646 under Cansfield. Either seems possible. ​
