  • Notes 
    • "He was summoned to Parliament from 16 August 1308 to 14 Feb. 1347/8, by writs directed Willelmo la Zouche and from 26 Dec. 1323 Willelmo la Zouche de Haryngworth." [Royal Ancestry]

      Pardoned in 1313, along with his son Eudes, for their involvement in the death of Piers Gaveston.

      "His opposition to Edward II's government included involvement in the summary execution of Piers Gaveston in 1312, for which his proposed pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in 1317 may have been intended as an act of atonement. William's talents, however, were expressed mainly through military exploits. From 1301 he saw frequent service against the Scots. He also campaigned in Ireland and Gascony and had, too, experience in the law. In May 1330 he was justice in eyre in Derbyshire but had to be replaced before the end of the month because of ill health. Although his disease was believed to be incurable, he did recover, and continued to play a role in local administration and on the king's council (1337)." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]
