  • Notes 
    • Sheriff of Yorkshire 1366-67. One of the executors of the will of William la Zouche, Archbishop of York, his father-in-law's brother.

      Called in error "William Constable" in The Visitation of Yorkshire in the Years 1563 and 1564.

      "By 1351 Marmaduke had the resources to undertake rebuilding at Flamborough and obtained licence to crenellate the manor. Alongside this suggestion of growing prosperity Marmaduke was taking on a larger public role. In 1349 he was appointed an executor of Archbishop Zouche, he was added to the commission of the peace in 1351, and was sheriff of Yorkshire in 1360–62 and 1366–7. He was discharged as commissioner in May 1370, which seems to mark the end of his public career, although he did not die until 21 May 1378. His last months were overshadowed by the murder of his kinsman John at Holme-on-Spalding Moor in June 1377 by two men identified as the cousins of the parson. There had been trouble there in 1365, when a commission of oyer and terminer had been appointed to investigate Marmaduke's complaint that the residents had attacked his manor house, and John's death was perhaps linked with continuing local unrest."
