Cromwell's bodyguard? (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

protector

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'cromwell's' is the first definition.

(Oliver Cromwell was Lord Protector)

'bodyguard?' is the second definition.

(bodyguard is a kind of protector)

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for protector that I've seen before include "Defender", "Box at Lord's say", "Patron" and "Guardian; regent".)
