  • Notes 
    • Also spelled Cantelou; Cantilupe.

      Count of Mortain. Sheriff of Worcestershire 1200-15; Sheriff of Warwickshire and Leicestershire 1201-4, 1209-23; itinerant Justice in Staffordshire 1203; Sheriff of Herefordshire 1204-5; Steward of the King's Household 1204-22; justice in Nottinghamshire 1208; itinerant justice in Bedfordshire 1218. Fought at the siege of Bitham Castle, 1221.

      "He and William Briwerre supervised elections in the vacant sees of York and Carlisle in 1214. Wendover's description of him as one of John's 'evil counselors' probably owes much to his role as a gaoler of baronial hostages. Wendover also suggests that Cantelowe may have wavered in his loyalty after the rebel seizure of London in 1215, but this is belied by the stream of royal writs sent to him in 1215-16. In 1215 he also witnessed the royal declaration of free election to sees and abbeys. He took the side of the king in his war with the barons. In 1215-16 he was granted a number of manors belonging to rebels, and was commissioned to treat with those who might return to the king's peace." [Royal Ancestry]

      "A Norman by birth." [Royal Ancestry]
