    Notes:

    Or Ever, Evers, Ivre.

    Knight of the shire for Northumberland 1380 and 1381. Justice of Assize for Durham abt 1382, abt 1401, 1406-07, 1411, 1419-21. Sheriff of Northumberland 1389-90, 1397-99. Sheriff of Yorkshire 1391-92, 1395-96. Knight of the shire for Yorkshire 1393, 1397, 1399. Knighted by 1378.

    The above-noted 1399 parliament was the brief gathering that, in September, confirmed the abdication of Richard II and, six days later, met again as the first parliament of Henry IV. This was his last parliamentary service, but the last decades of his life were busy nonetheless:

    From The Parliamentary Representation of the County of York, 1258-1832 (citation details below):

    On 30 Nov., as the Kg's kt, he was granted an annuity of £50 and also received lett. of exemp. from jury serv. and appt as shf, esch. or cor.

    However, he took an active part in affairs under the new sovereign; he was appd on comms. of array in Northumberland and the N.R. in Dec. 1399 and was several times commd to negotiate for peace with the Scots. He appears continuously in the comm, of the peace for Northumberland until Feb. 1406/7, and for the N.R. until Nov. 1416. He did not sit again in pari, but in 1401 he was summd from the bpric of Durham to att. a council held on 16 Aug. On 11 May 1402 he was among those appd to deal with the persons who were saying that the new Kg had not kept his promises to maintain the laws and customs of the realm. Most probably he fought at Homildon Hill, for the orders not to ransom any Scots prisoners were sent to him, and in Mar. 1402/3 he was commd to settle the dispute in court mil. between the retainers of the Nevilles and the Percies as to their rights in the captives.

    With the outbreak of the Percy rising he was ord with others to assemble the men of Yorks, and Northumberland to resist the rebels and he appears on the comms. of array in the former co. and in the N.R. later in the yr. Afterwards as a recompense for his expenses he was granted the reversion of the man. of Newsom. On 13 Aug. 1403, he was included in a comm, of o.t. in the N.R. for all offences against the Kg's subjects since the time when Hen. IV left Leicester for the North, and on 1 Mar. 1403/4 was included in another regarding certain treasons committed in the bpric of Durham, while in Jul. 1405 he was appd to keep the peace and suppress unlawful assemblies in the lordship of Alnwick.

    In 1404 and again in 1412, he was commd to conduct inquiries with a view to the assessment of the subsidy. On 28 Jun. 1406, he was appd to inquire about the peculation of shfs, eschs., and other royal officials in the N.R. and as to the value of royal grants made by the Kg or his predecessors, and was also empowered to bori ow money in the Kg's name. Upon the provision of Thos de Langley to the see of Durham in this yr, Eure was appd one of the keepers of the temporalities for him. He was appd on a gen. comm, of o.t. for treason and felony in cos. York, Northumberland, Cumberland, and Westmorland in Aug. 1407, and in Apr 1408 was commd to treat with certain rebels who wished to return to their allegiance.

    Eure acted as lieutenant to the Marshal of England and an appeal was made against one of his judgements in that capacity in May 1411. Three yrs later his lett. of exemp. of 1399 were confirmed. He was once more appd commr of array in the N.R. on 28 May and on 11 Dec. was appd to negotiate for the exchange of Murdac, s. of the duke of Albany, for young Hen. Percy. Except for the comm, of the peace mentioned above he received no further charge, and as he would be now 65 he probably retired from public affairs.
