Technically speaking, I'm speaking from knowledge of the army later on (1790ish - 1815ish) but... A company was lead by a captain, and under the captain would be 2 lieutenants and 4 ensigns. There would then be two majors under a lieutenant colonel who would command a battalion (10 companies) Regime...
