  • Notes 
    • "He accompanied Hugh le Despenser on his mission to the King of the Romans, June 1294; was appointed, 1 March 1296/7, to receive clergy in Lincolnshire into the King's peace; was summoned for service beyond seas, 1297, and continually against the Scots, 1299-1310; fought in the King's division at the battle of Falkirk, 22 July 1298; Constable of Rockingham Castle and Keeper of the forest between Stamford and Oxford, 17 January 1298 / 9-August 1307. He was summoned to Parliament from 6 February 1298/9 to 16 June 1311, by writs directed Ade de Welles, whereby he is held to have become Lord Welles or Welle. He was at the siege of Carlaverock, July 1300; joined in the Barons' letter to the Pope, 12 February 1300/1; was granted free warren in his demesne lands, 28 January 1301/2; served again in Scotland, 1303-04 and 1310; was summoned to attend the Coronation of Edward II, 18 January 1307/8; a Commr. de walliis et fossatis, co. Lincoln, 18 July 1310." [Complete Peerage V:439-40.]

      "He went abroad with Hugh Despenser on a royal embassy to Germany in 1294. The date of his entry into the royal household is not known, but he was listed as a banneret of the king's household from 1297 to 1306. In 1297 he was among those appointed to receive fines from those clergy who wished to re-enter the king's protection during Edward I's dispute with Archbishop Winchelsey. It seems certain that he continued to support the king during the developing political crisis in that year; he participated in the fruitless royal expedition in Flanders in the autumn with a retinue of one knight and twelve squires. Two of the latter were knighted in the course of the campaign. Welles fought with Edward at the battle of Falkirk in 1298. In 1299 he was given custody of Rockingham Castle and was made keeper of the royal forests between Oxford and Stamford, a clear sign of royal favour. In the same year he was summoned to parliament as a baron. In 1300 he was present on the Caerlaverock campaign in Scotland, serving with a contingent of three knights and nine squires. He served in Scotland again in 1301 and in 1303–4. His involvement in the Scottish wars continued under Edward II, with service in the campaign of 1309–10. He was also summoned regularly to parliament." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]
