I have been writing down William Blythe's biography etc. I know he was at the Battle of Marston Moor which was on the 2nd of July 1645. From there having now gained control of York they marched to Sheffield where after a short siege they took the castle on the 11th August. The castle was left under Colonel John Bright's care and he gave control in turn to Edward Gill from Norton. William Blythe, Edward Gill, and John Bright were all kin and in the same regiment. John Bright marched off to relieve Pontefract. Did William Blythe stay with the garrison in Sheffield within a stones throw of his home or march off with John Bright?

I found the answer by looking at the birth of his son I think. 40 weeks after the take back of Sheffield Castle.
