  • Notes 
    • MP for Yorkshire, 1422, 1431, 1442, 1449. Served at Agincourt in the retinue of his father-in-law.

      Sheriff of Yorkshire, 1444-45.

      "Sheriff, Northumberland, 1436-7, but in July 1437 a comn. was apptd., on the petition of Thomas, bp. of Durham, to take from Sir William Eure surety of the peace in £1,000, 'for that he has notoriously threatened the said Bishop with death and maiming.'" [History of Parliament]

      Despite the above, he appears to have been entrusted with a variety of responsibilities and commissions.
