 =====Notes===== =====Notes=====
 Apparently Thornhill took over after Butler'​s death at Cropredy Bridge; that said, the officer lists do not show many similarities except Capt Marsh so this may prove to be wrong. In April 1644 Boteler deposited arms for pikemen and musketeers into stores at Oxford. Whether he raised or tried to raise some foot is not clear. In May 1645 Thornhill'​s regiment skirmished with [[royalist:​horse-regiments:​sir-william-courtney|Sir William Courtney’s Regiment]] of Royalist horse at Hinton St George by mistake, thinking them Parliamentarians. ​ Apparently Thornhill took over after Butler'​s death at Cropredy Bridge; that said, the officer lists do not show many similarities except Capt Marsh so this may prove to be wrong.
