    Pardoned in 1313, along with his son Eudes, for their involvement in the death of Piers Gaveston.

    "His opposition to Edward II's government included involvement in the summary execution of Piers Gaveston in 1312, for which his proposed pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in 1317 may have been intended as an act of atonement. William's talents, however, were expressed mainly through military exploits. From 1301 he saw frequent service against the Scots. He also campaigned in Ireland and Gascony and had, too, experience in the law. In May 1330 he was justice in eyre in Derbyshire but had to be replaced before the end of the month because of ill health. Although his disease was believed to be incurable, he did recover, and continued to play a role in local administration and on the king's council (1337)." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    • Alternate death: 1289

    Notes:

    In this 2010 post to SGM, Douglas Richardson notes that most historical reference works before 1900 placed this Eudes la Zouche a generation later, as a younger son of Alan la Zouche and his wife Ellen de Quincy. Richardson further notes that some descendants of this Eudes la Zouche included Quincy arms among their quarterings, presumably because they believed themselves to be descended from Ellen. But Complete Peerage volume 12 (2) (1959) places Eudes as a younger brother, not a son, of Alan la Zouche, like him a son of Sir Roger la Zouche and his wife Margaret. Citing a 1262 Patent Rolls entry that refers to "Eudo la Zouche, brother of the said Alan," and noting that the record shows Eudes to have been continually active from 1251 to 1279, Richardson goes on to argue that Complete Peerage was in fact correct.

    Note also that the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography ("Zouche [de la Zouche] family, magnates") agrees with this placement of Eudes la Zouche.

    "As a younger son Eudo sought advancement through royal service, which he had already entered before 1254 when he escorted Queen Eleanor to join Henry III in Gascony. He associated with the Lord Edward in the late 1250s when he acted as witness to the prince's charters. Furthermore, during disturbances in the Welsh marches in 1262 he was entrusted with the defence of Edward's castles in Cheshire. Eudo's continuing support for the royal cause in the barons' war is suggested by his summons in arms to the king at Windsor in 1263. Royal service notwithstanding it was Eudo's marriage in 1268 to Millicent (d. 1299), widow of John de Montalt and sister and coheir of Sir George de Cantilupe (1251–1273), which established the family's landed fortune." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Regarding the date of his marriage to Millicent de Cantelow, Patricia Junkin says here that he "was married to Millicent Cantilupo by 1262 when he is given livery of her lands, including Baseford."

    In a post to SGM on 22 Feb 2017, Douglas Richardson notes that "Eudes la Zouche and his brother, Henry la Zouche, served as manucaptors (or sureties) for their niece, Joyce, daughter and heiress of William la Zouche, in 1272-3. Reference: LTR Memoranda Rolls, E368no46, image 2128 (available at http://aalt.law.uh.edu/E1/E368no46/IMG_2128.htm). For evidence that Henry la Zouche was the brother of William la Zouche, see Jenkinson & Formoy, Select Cases in the Exchequer of Pleas (Selden Soc. 48) (1932): 80–81."

    This couple were ancestors of President Rutherford B. Hayes.

    Notes:

    "In 1277, being then a knight, he served for his father in the campaign in Wales, and in 1287 was going into Wales on the King's service with the Earl of Gloucester, when he was accompanied by his illegitimate elder brother, John Lovel of Snorscombe. Both had letters of protection going abroad in July 1287 and June 1288. In 1294 he served in the short campaign in Gascony; in 1295 was again under the Earl of Gloucester, with his brother Thomas; and in 1296 was marshal of the army in Scotland. In 1297 he was active in public service. He was summoned to Parliament from 6 February 1290 to 26 August 1307, by writs directed Johanni Lovel and later Johanni Lovel de Tichmershe, whereby he is held to have become Lord Lovel. He was summoned to the campaign in Scotland in 1298, in which Edward defeated Wallace at Falkirk, but did not serve; summonses to serve in person were continued till his death. In 1301, as lord of Docking, he joined in the Barons' letter to the Pope. From March 1302/3 he was again in Scotland on the King's service, and his wife with him. In July 1304 it was 'the nobleman, Sir John Lovel, knight,' to whom Sir William Oliphant surrendered the keys of Stirling Castle after the fierce three months' siege. In November following he had licence to crenellate his mansion of Titchmarsh. In 1306 he was lieutenant of the Earl Marshal of England. He was summoned to attend the Coronation of Edward II in February 1307/8, and in 1309 to a Council at Westminster, in which year he joined in the letter to the Pope. In March 1309/10 he was one of the magnates who declared that the permission to appoint Lords Ordainers should not be taken as a precedent, nor prejudice the King or his heirs." [Complete Peerage]
