    "He and William Briwerre supervised elections in the vacant sees of York and Carlisle in 1214. Wendover's description of him as one of John's 'evil counselors' probably owes much to his role as a gaoler of baronial hostages. Wendover also suggests that Cantelowe may have wavered in his loyalty after the rebel seizure of London in 1215, but this is belied by the stream of royal writs sent to him in 1215-16. In 1215 he also witnessed the royal declaration of free election to sees and abbeys. He took the side of the king in his war with the barons. In 1215-16 he was granted a number of manors belonging to rebels, and was commissioned to treat with those who might return to the king's peace." [Royal Ancestry]
