-Raised in Shropshire, the regiment ​were sent to Ireland and served under Michael Jones at Dungan’s Hill. By 1648 they were in garrison at Drogheda and in 1649 were besieged there by Lord Inchiquin’s Royalists. On Inchiquin completing his battery, Lt Col Foulkes surrendered the town. Allegedly of the 700 foot and 250 horse present, no more than 100 foot and 35 horse marched out to Dublin, the remainder changing sides to Inchiquin.
