Under Civil War Sieges, the article says "Sir Hugh Cholmley - who originally occupied the castle as a Parliamentarian loyal to Oliver Cromwell in September 1642 . . ." In September 1642, Cromwell was a captain in Sir Philip Stapleton's regiment in Essex's army, and the only soldiers loyal to him were the sixty members of the troop he had raised. The four words "loyal to Oliver Cromwell" should be erased. The sentence will continue to make sense and be accurate. --Martin Wyatt (talk) 20:12, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
