Notes

Rather confusingly the regiment’s officers are mainly from the North, but it is noted as serving in the West, the North, then the West again. Possibly this represents two regiments, one serving in the South under Belasyse until he was appointed Governor of York, then another raised in Yorkshire. The Southern unit appears to have been led by Major Bovill in the absence of Belasyse. Possibly he is the Colonel Jordan Bovell who later surrendered at Truro.
