  • Notes 
    • Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, 1383-86. Knight of the shire for Devon, 1383, 1386, 1388, 1390, 1393, 1395, 1399, 1401.

      "Courtenay's career reveals a man of energy and ability in national and local affairs whose prediliction for violence and thuggery was extreme even by medieval standards. Even so, and perhaps because of this unsavory reputation, he provided the house of Lancaster with important support at a critical time." [History of Parliament]
