The earl was deflected for a while by the arrival at Bridlington of the Queen with arms and munitions for the main army, but her arrival led to the defection of Sir Hugh Cholmeley from the Parliament, and Scarborough passed into royalist hands.

On 1 June Waller’s army seized the crossing of the Thames at Newbridge, having marched up from Abingdon, and so serious was this that the King’s advisers in Oxford briefly countenanced the idea of surrender. Instead, the King took command of the situation, and sent forces towards Abingdon, inducing Waller to abandon Newbridge. On 3 June, the King at its head, the royalist army marched via Wolvercote and Handborough Bridge to arrive at Bourton-on-the-Water on the 4th. Oxford was garrisoned with 3,000 or so infantry.
