On 20 March 1665 Captain John Abrahal received a reappointment as a captain in an English regiment. He later appears in regimental lists for the Guelderland foot in 1676. His company was taken over on 9 December 1678 but appears to have taken another one which eventually went to Aeneas Mackay on 16 December 1681.
