  • Notes 
    • "A man of violent behavior, beginning with the manslaughter of John Taylor, chaplain of Saul Chapel, near Fretherne, in 1385. In July 1387, he purchased for £100 at the Exchequer, a ship called the Holygost, and offered his service in Sept 1394 when he joined the royal expedition to Ireland. About July 1403, he and William Rye took command of a small fleet assembled at Bristol and invaded Glamorganshire, in Wales. Knight of the Shire for Gloucester, 1404. In 1405, he was again charged with murder by a hired assassin and imprisoned for 2 years. He was pardoned 14 Dec 1406 after a payment of 200 marks."
