He accompanied the King on his French expedition in 1230, and to Wales in 123i. He was in debt to the Jews in 1234, and made a justice of the Common Pleas. In 1242 he was to have two good ships provided for him to follow the King across the sea to Gascony, and in April of that year was a Chief Justice of the Forests South of Trent. He served in the expedition into Wales in 1245, and in 1246 refounded the abbey of Newenham at Axminster. He was also a benefactor of the houses of Bruton, Barlinch and Cleeve. In 1252 he was appointed keeper of the royal forests South of Trent, with 100 marks per annum for maintenance, and keeper during pleasure of Sauvey Castle, co. Leicester. In 1253 he had grants of free warren at Dunster, Whichford and Ottery, and licence to hunt hare, fox, cat and badger in Somerset and one other county." [Complete Peerage]
