 Marmaduke Holtby appears to have been Lt Col of the regiment in November 1643 (Rawl. Mss. D 395 f.193/4 24.11.1643) ((Information kindly provided by Victor Judge aka BCW user '​1642'​)). In December 1643 a Captain John Messenger was commissioned by Prince Rupert as a captain of cuirassiers in Holtby'​s regiment (see below). I know of no further mention of Holtby'​s regiment so perhaps he failed to raise it. A 'Col. Holtby'​ was said by a Parliamentary report to have fled by boat from a skirmish at Lancaut in the Forest of Dean in February 1645, uncertain whether the same Holtby. ​ Marmaduke Holtby appears to have been Lt Col of the regiment in November 1643 (Rawl.
