Forgotten Heroes by Roy Dutton has a roll for Bettingtons Horse but it has a total of 112 names so appears to be a combined list possibly with No2 troop (Cooke) although Cooke himself isn’t one of them. I believe Bettingtons had 60 men and Cooke’s 50 hence my assumption but please correct me if this is wrong. Dutton also gives a roll for de Burgos No.1 troop but it only has 32 names whereas I thought the total should be 48. I’ve got to wait till Christmas to get For God Queen and Colony myself!
