  • Notes 
    • Magna Carta surety. He was among the barons excommunicated by Pope Innocent in late 1215, and his lands were taken by the king. He reduced Essex and Sussex for Prince Louis of France, and in consequence his lands in Norfolk and Suffolk were plundered by John. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Lincoln, 20 May 1217, and his Lincolnshire lands were given to John Marshal. At the war's end, he made peace with Henry III and was restored to his estates.

      Warden of the Cinque Ports. Constable of Dover Castle, 1203-04. Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk, 1209-11. Justice itinerant in Lincolnshire.

      He died on crusade, possibly in the Near East. 25 Jan 1221 is that date on which his son Roger gave 100 marks for the livery of his inheritance.
