 +===== Service History =====
 +  *December: Troop raised
 +  *January: Storm of Leeds
 +  *September: Troop disbanded or converted to Horse
 +Norcliffe commanded a Company of Dragoons from the 12th December 1642 till the 18th September 1643. Following this he led a troop of horse, so the dragoons may have been upgraded. Both the dragoons and horse may have been part of [[parliamentarian:​horse-regiments:​sir-thomas-fairfax|Sir Thomas Fairfax’s Regiment of Horse]]. On the 22nd May 1644 he was commissioned Colonel of his own [[parliamentarian:​horse-regiments:​sir-thomas-norcliffe|Regiment of Horse]].((N.A. SP28/​41/​125-6.))
