I have recently found an original list of the commissioned officers
to the New Model Army as of 1645. This list contains a number of commissioners
to the army, generally with the rank of Colonel. Does anyone know of a
good starting point for research into these individuals, their individual
roles and their histories ?

The starting point for research into the officers of the New Model Army
is C.H. Firth and G. Davies, Regimental History of Cromwell's Army. The
senior officer corps for 1645 is well known and there are a number of contemporary
lists including those in the House of Lords Record Office and in the PRO.
Ian Gentles of Glendon College, York University, Toronto, has spent his
entire professional life studying this problem and is the current expert
on officers names, ranks, and regimental history. A number of other scholars
have also written about the New Model Army and its composition.
