 =====Notes===== =====Notes=====
 +Pollard had commanded the trained band since at least 1630, but seems to have quickly lost control to the Parliamentarians,​ indeed he may have been dead by 1642. In August 1642 Royalist Arthur Bassett was commissioned Colonel of the regiment formerly Sir Samuel Rolle'​s which was ordered to disband and disarm. Plainly this was ignored. ​

 (Luttrell'​s accounts clearly state that he became colonel of //"ye sd regmt"//​ i.e. that in which he had been captain and major. However in a letter he wrote after the retaking of Barnstaple he say he was commissioned to raise a volunteer regiment and that Colonel Rolle was calling in his old trayned regiment ((R. Cotton: //​Barnstaple and the northern part of Devonshire during the great civil war, 1642-1646// (1889) pp 277-8)) It is possible that Rolle was too old for active command, he was in his mid-fifties and would die in 1647, and that Luttrell took over his command having failed to raise enough men himself.) (Luttrell'​s accounts clearly state that he became colonel of //"ye sd regmt"//​ i.e. that in which he had been captain and major.
