  • Notes 
    • Warden of Gloucester; Captain of Berwick-upon-Tweed; Chief Justice of South Wales; Seneschal of Aquitaine. Present at the siege of Caerlaverock, July 1300. He was summoned to Parliament from 16 Aug 1308 to 15 May 1321 by writs directed Mauricio de Bekeleye.

      He joined Thomas, earl of Lancaster, in the rebellion against Edward II and the Despensers. He was given letters of safe-conduct which, he believed, would allow him to go to the king and confer with him; in fact, he was arrested and taken to Wallingford Castle, where after five years of imprisonment he died.
