    • From Complete Peerage:

      ROBERT DE UFFORD (b) had interests in Ufford, Suffolk, by (1255-6) 40 Hen. III, when he levied a fine of the advowson there to Gilbert Pecche. He was in Wales with Edward, the King's son, Oct. 1257, was going with him beyond seas, July 1261, and was with him at Boulogne-sur-Mer, Jan. 1263/4. Having gone to Ireland on the Prince's affairs, Sep. 1268, he was made Justiciary there, 1268-69, and again 17 June 1276-Nov. 1281, when he was replaced, being "so affected by infirmity that he cannot attend to the office." He was granted the custody of the town and castle of Orford, Suffolk, 15 May 1275 - May 1276, and again for life, 28 Dec. 1280; was Justice of Chester, before Oct. 1276; had a protection for 3 years, staying in England, 7 Dec. 1282; and he and his heirs received a grant of a weekly market and yearly fair at Bawdsey, Suffolk, 28 Aug. 1283. On 7 May 1290 he was allowed to appoint attorneys, being too old to ride, and again on 30 Dec. 1296, by reason of his debility; but he was a Commissioner to keep the sea-coast near Dunwich, 30 Aug. 1295. He married, 1stly, before 12 May 1273, Mary, widow of William DE SAY (died shortly before 12 Feb. 1271/2). She was living, 10 Aug. 1280. He married, 2ndly, before 1286-87, Joan. He died shortly before 9 Sep. 1298. His widow was living, 18 Nov. 1307. [Complete Peerage XII/2:148-9]

      (b) In his collections for Suffolk genealogies, Sir Simonds d'Ewes says that Robert de Ufford was, "uti colligo", 2nd son of John de Peyton, son of Nigel, who lived in the reign of Henry I; but there is no evidence among the charters which he there transcribes from the documents then (Dec. 1631) penes Sir Edward Peyton, Knight and Barinet, at Isleham, Cambs, and no evidence has been traced elsewhere; nor is the chronology easily reconcilable with the known facts. Robert de Ufford is known to have had a brother John, who was h. in July 1276. A John de Ufford had letters of protection for 3 years, 7 Nov. 1280, proceeding by the King's license, to Ireland, and letters of safe conduct, 14 Mar. 1282/3 and 30 Aug. 1284, to go to the Court of Rome. Royal assent was given to his election as Bishop of Enachdune, a disputed Irish see, 16 Mar 1282/3, but he d. "prosecuting his right" thereto before 1300. Another man (? other men) of this name (fl. 1302-25) is described with John, brother of Robert, in Knights of Edward I.
