    • He was summoned to Parliament by writs from 14 Jun 1329 to 20 Nov 1360.

      "Knighted before 1322; fought at the battle of Boroughbridge, 16 Mar 1322 and there taken prisoner. Imprisoned in Pevensey Castle until his release, 16 Oct 1326, and on 4 Apr 1327, was made Joint Custodian of the deposed King, Edward II, whom he 'curteously received' the next day at Berkeley Castle, but when he was commanded to deliver his custody over to his fellow custodians, he departed 'with heavy cheere perceiving what violence was intended.' He was tried by a jury of 12 Knights, without protest in 1330/1 as an accessory to the murder of the deposed King, but was acquitted. Fought in Scotland, 1328; Marshal of the English army in France, 1340; Captain of the Scottish Marches, 1342; Warden and Chief Justice in Eyre, south of Trent, 1345-1348."
