    Notes:

    He was outlawed for unspecified felonies around 1306, and lost some of his lands, but he was pardoned 19 May 1307 at the request of Aymer de Valance, earl of Pembroke, in whose retinue he was in 1313, 1320, and 1321. 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.

    In addition to serving in Parliament as a "knight of the shire", he was also later summoned to Parliament by writ, thus serving in the 14th-century equivalents of the houses of Commons and Lords, respectively. The latter service was from 27 Jan 1332 to 2 Jan 1334, and the writs were directed Johanni Darcy le cosyn.

    He fought at Crécy, and was one of those sent from Calais, 8 Sep 1346, to announce the victory to Parliament.
