 +=====Notes=====
 +Conyers Lord Darcy and Conyers was Colonel of this Yorkshire Trained Band Regiment of Foot. His eldest son Sir Conyers Darcy, led a blue-coated regiment of foot to join the Oxford Army in 1643 and was killed at First Newbury, command passing to his brother, Marmaduke Darcy. It’s possible that some of the engagements noted refer to Sir Conyers Darcy’s volunteer regiment. ​
