This early brush with the law appears to have had little or no effect on his career, as demonstrated by the offices he subsequently held: Constable of Norham Castle, 1317; Sheriff of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, 1319-22; knight of the shire for Nottinghamshire, 1320; Sheriff of Lancashire, 1323; Justiciar of Ireland, 1323-27, 1328-31, 1332-37, 1340-44; Sheriff of Yorkshire, 1327-28; Steward of the King's Household, 1337-40; Chamberlain to the King, 1341-46 or later; Constable of Nottingham Castle, 1344-47; and Constable of the Tower of London, 1346-47.

The latter service was from 27 Jan 1332 to 2 Jan 1334, and the writs were directed Johanni Darcy le cosyn.
