 =====Notes===== =====Notes=====
 Unusually for Ireland this unit was a full regiment of horse and were newly raised in Ulster in 1642. Noted in the Ulster forces in 1642 ((Historical Manuscripts Commission, Fourteenth Report, Appendix, Part VII, The Manuscripts of the Marquis of Ormonde)), Hill's troop at least was intended to support the Scots Covenanters in Ulster. Unusually for Ireland this unit was a full regiment of horse and were newly raised in Ulster in 1642.

 +Although no clear citation of the unit's involvement at Benburb survives it seems likely that at least part of the regiment was present ((The Battle of Benburb 1646. Clive Hollick, Mercier Press, 2011. ISBN 978 1 85635 670 1.)).
