  • Notes 
    • Knight of the shire for Warwickshire, 1300; Constable of Wallingford Castle; Seneschal of Ponthieu.

      "John de Clinton, 1st Baron Clinton, so created according to later doctrine by writ of summons to Parliament 6 Feb 1298/9 (though never again thereafter); the peerage is heritable by heirs general, which can include females); Lord of the Manor of Maxstoke, Warwicks, through his wife; served Scottish and French Wars of Edward I, MP Warwicks 1300-01, Constable of Wallingford Castle 1308." [Burke's Peerage]

      "John de Clinton (son and heir of Thomas de Clinton by Maud, daughter of Sir Ralph Bracebridge of Kinsbury, co. Worcester), b. c 1258, d.1310, 1st Lord Clinton; m. c 1290 Ida, daughter of Sir William de Odingsells of Maxstoke by Ela, daughter of Walter Fitz Robert. She was 1st daughter, b. c 1270, living 1321." [Ancestral Roots]

      "John de Clinton, of Amington and Maxstoke, co. Warwick, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir of Thomas de Clinton, of Amington (died v.p., before 1264), by Maud, daughter of Sir Ralph Bracebridge, of Kinsbury, co. Warwick, was born probably in 1258. He served, or was called upon to serve, in the Scottish and French wars. He was summoned to Parliament 6 February 1298/9 by writ directed Johanni de Clinton, whereby he is held to have become Lord Clinton. He was never again so summoned. He was 2 years later (12 March 1300/1), summoned with more than a thousand others cum equis et armis, being then denominated as of Maxstoke. He appears to have been Knight of the shire for co. Warwick 1300-01. Constable of Wallingford Castle, 1308." [Complete Peerage III:312-13]

      [footnote in CP to the above:] "The name is said to be from the manor of Glinton, afterwards Clinton, Northants near Market Deeping, but the Clintons were Oxfordshire people as early as 1230. In N. & Q., 7th Series, vol.viii, p. 486, it is stated that the 1st Earl of Lincoln 'obtained a grant of this very district of Glinton,' no doubt because of the similarity of name. Lower, in his Family Names, states it to be "from Glimpton, anciently written Clinton, co. Oxford. The founder of the family, Geoffrey de Clinton, Treasurer and Chamberlain to King Henry I, is said, by Ordericus (who, as a contemporary, probably can be trusted), to have been of mean parentage, though, according to some accounts he was of the noblest Norman extraction."
    • Knight of the shire for Warwickshire. Constable of Wallingford Castle. Seneschal of Ponthieu.
