 +====Colonel ​Richard Bulkeley==== 
 +Variously said to be nephew or son of Lord Bulkeley, he was a Colonel in the [[trained-band:​anglesey|Anglesey Trained Bands]] prior to 1642 while still a minor. Presumably this was a semi-honorary appointment. By 1646 he was colonel of a cavalry regiment, and led forces to regain Beaumaris, partly as a negotiating piece to extract better terms from the victorious Parliamentarians((//​The Old Service: Royalist regimental colonels and the Civil War, 1642-6// P.R. Newman, Manchester University Press, 1993. ISBN 0-7190-3752-2)). ​
