 ====Thomas, Lord Bulkeley==== ====Thomas, Lord Bulkeley====
 [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Thomas_Bulkeley,​_1st_Viscount_Bulkeley|Thomas Bulkeley]], 1st Viscount Bulkeley (1585–1659) (also spelt Bulkley) was created Viscount of Cashel in the Irish Peerage in 1644. Despite busily engaging in a local feud against the Cheadle family, he ably supported Royalist efforts to supply and equip the '​Anglo-Irish'​ forces sent by Ormonde to Lord Byron. By 1646 Bulkeley was in dispute with Lord Byron, who described him as //'the drunken Lord'//​. Although he surrendered tamely to Mytton in 1646 he was sufficiently committed to join Sir John Owen's rising two years later. [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Thomas_Bulkeley,​_1st_Viscount_Bulkeley|Thomas Bulkeley]], 1st Viscount Bulkeley (1585–1659) (also spelt Bulkley) was created Viscount of Cashel in the Irish Peerage in 1644.

 +====Colonel Richard Bulkeley====
 +Variously said to be nephew or son of Lord Bulkeley, he was a Colonel in the Anglesey Trained bands prior to 1642 while still a minor. Presumably this was a semi-honorary appointment. By 1646 he was colonel of a cavalry regiment, [[royalist:​horse-regiments:​richard-bulkeley|Colonel Richard Bulkeley’s Regiment of Horse]] and led forces to regain Beaumaris, partly as a negotiating piece to extract better terms from the victorious Parliamentarians((//​The Old Service: Royalist regimental colonels and the Civil War, 1642-6// P.R. Newman, Manchester University Press, 1993. ISBN 0-7190-3752-2)). ​
