"trained band" (Macaulay calls them "trainbands") is absolutely right. The militia was raised and commanded in the shires, the trained bands were raised in London and I think other cities. Legally, they were part of the militia, but the London bands were under the jurisdiction of a locally-appointed committee. They would have helped defend London, if Napoleon had invaded.
