Nice article, as l am from Kent l found it very interesting.
I grew up in Northfleet, it had a small skirmish in 1648, around 500 to 1,000 men per side. It was a victory for the New Model, the Royalists scattering.

In nearby Southfleet an archaeological dig turned up a number of musket and pistol balls of Civil War vintage and local legend has it that the landlord of the Kings Arms pub in Meopham was hung by Parliamentarians for refusing to take the pub sign down,until recently they had some cavalry armour on display.

Waller had a red coated Kentish regiment in the Southern Association,maybe Wheldons?
