  • Notes 
    • 12th Earl of Oxford. Privy councilor, 1431, 1454.

      His career is marked by a consistent reluctance to take sides in the developing conflict between York and Lancaster. Ultimatelt, in 1459, he declared for Lancaster, just in time for the Yorkist victory at Northampton in July 1460. In February 1462 he was arrested for high treason, tried, convicted, and beheaded on Tower Hill.
