Denbigh fought under Essex, commanding a regiment of horse at Edgehill (see [[parliamentarian:​horse-regiments:​lord-fielding|Lord Fielding’s Regiment of Horse]]). He then secured an independent command in the Midlands, raising new regiments of horse and foot. He resigned his commands after the Self-Denying Ordinance, but had not been exercising field command since the end of July 1644. [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Basil_Feilding,​_2nd_Earl_of_Denbigh|Bazil Feilding, 2nd Earl of Denbigh]] inherited the earldom from his father [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​William_Feilding,​_1st_Earl_of_Denbigh|William Feilding, 1st Earl of Denbigh]] after the first Earl was killed fighting for the Royalists alongside Prince Rupert at the storm of Birmingham.

 +====Anthony Hungerford====
 +[[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Anthony_Hungerford_(Roundhead)|Anthony Hungerford]] served as a Captain in the Earl of Denbigh’s Regiment of Foot and as governor of Stoke-on-Tern in Shropshire. Exactly when he transferred to [[parliamentarian:​foot-regiments:​humphrey-mackworth|Colonel Humphrey Mackworth’s Regiment of Foot]] is currently unclear to me. He garrisoned Stokesay Castle from autumn 1645 and in summer 1646 was promoted Major of Mackworth'​s '​standing companies'​. In 1647 he raised [[commonwealth:​foot-regiments:​anthony-hungerford|Colonel Anthony Hungerford’s Regiment of Foot]] from disbanded men in Shropshire and led them in Ireland. He was shot in the head at Dungan'​s Hill but survived, retiring to England. He was absent in England raising more recruits leaving Lt Col Foulkes as governor of Drogheda during the siege. He was planning to return to Ireland but the regiment was disbanded instead. ​
