-Raised in Shropshire, likely including disbanded men from [[parliamentarian:​foot-regiments:​anthony-hungerford|Hungerford’s Regiment of Foot]], the regiment was 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. As the regiment was so depleted it was quickly disbanded in the August. ​+Raised in Shropshire, likely including disbanded men from several Shropshire units, the regiment was sent to Ireland and served under Michael Jones at Dungan’s Hill.
