 +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. ​
