  • Notes 
    • According to F. N. Craig (citation details below), in 1236 "custody during minority of the lands and heirs of John, son of Adulf de Gatesden, with the marriage of the heirs, was granted to John de Gatesden, king's clerk." In a lengthy footnote, Craig explains that "John de Gatesden, king's clerk" was a different individual from any of the descendants of Adulf de Gatesden. Instead he "appears to be the representative of the senior branch of the family of Adulf de Gatesden." He was sheriff of Surrey in 1228 and the queen's chamberlain in 1238.

      "In 1236 John de Gatesden, the king's clerk, gave 25 marks for having custody of the land and heirs of John, son of Aldulf de Gatesden, during the minority of the heirs, together with their marriage. Of John, the son of Aldulf, little but his name seems known. The grantee of the custody of his heirs was, however, a man of some importance in the earlier part of Henry's reign, being keeper of the queen's wardrobe, guardian of the bishopric of Winchester, envoy abroad of the king, and sheriff of Surrey and Sussex."
