  • Notes 
    • Earl of Stafford. Steward of ther Royal Household, 6 Jan 1341 to 29 Mar 1345, when he assumed the position of Seneschal of Aquitaine. King's lieutenant in Gascony, 1350 and onward. One of the 26 founding members, and the fifth knight, of the Order of the Garter. As a young man he supported the plot to free the young Edward III from his mother's lover, Roger Mortimer; he was subsequently a close member of Edward III's retinue for the rest of his life. He was also a notably competent soldier and diplomat in the Hundred Year's War.

      Summoned to Parliament by writ 29 Nov 1336 to 25 Nov 1350.

      "He [...] sensationally abducted Margaret de Audley, 2nd Baroness Audley, daughter of Hugh de Audley, 1st Earl of Gloucester and Margaret de Clare, who was worth at least £2314 a year, more than ten times his own estates. Her parents filed a complaint with King Edward III of England, but the King supported Stafford's actions. In compensation, the King appeased Hugh and Margaret by creating Hugh the 1st Earl of Gloucester. [Wikipedia]
