Excerpt from The Garrisons of Shropshire: During the Civil War, 1642-48

In the Spring of 1644, Charles again spent a few days in Shropshire, on his way from his winter quarters at Oxford to Leicester. He arrived at Chetwin, near Newport, the seat of Mr. Pigot, on the 17th of May - there he staid three nights, and then removed to Beaten, near Drayton, the house of Mr. Church, where he passed two nights. Three weeks afterwards (the 13th June) the fatal Battle of N aseby was fought, in which much of the best blood of the kingdom was shed. On the King's side alone it is stated that 20 Officers, and 600 private Soldiers were left dead on the field - above 100 Officers, and 4500 Soldiers taken prisoners, and Charles himself had a narrow escape. All his baggage containing his dispatches and private letters, together with one of his coaches, 8000 arms, and 300 horses fell into the hands of the enemy.
