  • Notes 
    • "John le Strange II, son and heir. In 1196/7 he acquired rights in land at Knockin, Salop, from his cousins, daughters of his uncle Guy. In 1198 he took the place of his cousin Ralph, who was ill, in the King's servlce. In 1204 the King asked Llewelin, Prince of North Wales, to grant John a safe conduct to go to and return from him. In 1206 he had sent his knights overseas. In 1212 he was concerned in the management of Album Monasterium; and was returned as holding the manors of Nessa nd Cheswardine of the grift of King Henry II. In 1213 he was given the custody of the castle of Carreghova; and in 1214 was sent to Llewelin to exact an oath to keep the truce. In 1216 the King committed to him the counties of Staffs and Salop during pleasure, and directed that he was to be treated as sheriff; and in the same year he was to have the manor of Kidderminster during pleasure. In March 1217/8 he was, with Hugh de Mortimer and Henry de Audley, directed to give safe-conduct to the Magnates of North Wales, that they might do homage at Worcester; and in the same month the sheriff of Staffs and Salop was directed to give him an aid from the counties for strengthening his castle at Knockin. On 7 June 1218 he was present at the dedication of Worcester Cathedral. In January 1223/4 he was granted a market at his manor of Hunstanton. On 29 August 1226, as John Lestrange senior, he was granted a pardon for debts and the vill of Wrockwardine for his maintenance during pleasure, for his services to the King and his father; and on 2 September he was appointed to sit with the Bishop of Hereford and others at Album Monasterium to accept the surrender of lands by the Prince of North Wales. He married Amice. He was dead by 20 January 1233/4, when his son did homage." [Complete Peerage XII/1:349-50]
