In the early part of 1645, the Parliamentarian forces of Colonel Laugharne had advanced from the west coast of Wales to take more territory. On 23rd April, the Royalist commander Charles Gerard pushed them back from Newcastle Emlyn, in Carmarthenshire, and over the following week, he forced the Parliamentarians to retreat into their strongholds of Pembroke and Tenby.
