Notes

Sir William was Colonel of an infantry regiment and a captain in Prince Rupert’s Regiment of Horse in 1642. Appointed Governor of Oxford in 1642, his horse regiment was based on his troop of horse from Rupert’s regiment but perhaps weren’t completed by the time of his death in 1643, or passed to the next governor, Sir Arthur Aston, for little more is heard of them.
