1643.

Sir John Henderson, royalist governor of Newark, set out in October 1643 to relieve Bolingbroke castle, near Horncastle. His force was intercepted by parliamentary cavalry under Manchester, Fairfax, and Cromwell and badly cut up on the 11th. Though a small‐scale action, the victory was a valuable boost to sagging roundhead morale.
