    Magna Carta surety.

    Seigneur of Montbrai in Normandy. Constable of York Castle.

    "He would appear either to have been in the King's company on his return from Palestine or to have waited upon him in Germany, because on 20 Nov. 1193 he witnessed a charter of Richard I at Spiers. He was, moreover, one of the pledges in Germany for King Richard's ransom, and did not obtain possession of his inheritance until 1194, paying a relief of £100. In 1197 he was present when the pact against France was made in Normandy between King Richard and Baldwin, Count of Flanders. On the death of Richard, Apr. 1199, he fortified his castles, and was one of the magnates who swore fealty to John only on receiving an undertaking that each should receive his rights. He had exemption from the first scutage of John of 2s. per fee. In 1200 William de Stuteville, as great-grandson and heir of Robert de Stuteville who had been dispossessed after Tinchebrai, renewed the claim of his family to certain of the Mowbray lands, and a settlement was made whereby the claimant was allowed 12 librates of land (Brincklow, co. Warwick) and the service of 9 knights in addition to the fee of 10 knights already held by him of Mowbray. William was abroad in the King's service in 1201 and 1203. On 25 Feb. 1203/4 he witnessed a royal charter at York. On the loss of Normandy in 1205 he adhered to John, and his Norman lands, including Montbrai, were taken into the French King's hand and forever lost to the family. He was with the King on his expedition to Ireland in 1210. In the King's quarrel with the Barons he sided with the latter, and at Runnymede in June 1215 demanded as his hereditary right the custody of the forests in Yorkshire and of the castle of York, the latter being committed to him pending inquiry as to his rights. He was one of the 25 Barons appointed to enforce the provisions of Magna Carta. As he continued in opposition to the King, his lands were forfeited, and he was among the Barons whose excommunication the King procured from Innocent III. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Lincoln, 20 May 1217, fighting for Louis against the young King Henry, but in Oct. he returned to his allegiance, and his lands were restored to him. In Feb. 1220/1 he accompanied the King to the siege of Byham. He defaulted in his service against the Welsh in 1223, and his lands were again taken into the King's hand, but he was repossessed in Dec." [Complete Peerage]
