  • Notes 
    • Lieutenant of Dover Castle. Several times justice of assize in Kent. Joined the barons against John.

      "[I]t is said that he was present at the siege of Acre in 1191. Of this fact, perhaps, the crest of the Saracen's head, which was borne equally by both of the families who descended from him, was a memento." ["The Lords of Cobham, Their Monuments, and the Church," citation details below.]
