    From Wikipedia:

    "Sir Thomas was an unlucky speculator under John, King of England owing over £800 when the Exchequer reopened after the end of the First Barons' War. In 1205 he purchased the office of High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, which he held until 1208. Unable to pay his debts, he was imprisoned in Rochester Castle until he had discharged them. He regained royal favour, and in 1213 was appointed to investigate extortions by the High Sheriffs of Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. As a northern lord and debtor Moulton sided with the Barons during the First Baron's War (see Magna Carta). A civil war that was fought over land that he had earned; during his service to the crown in the Crusades and was the very reason for his knighthood. He was also one of the rebels who mustered at Stamford in 1215. As a consequence he was excommunicated in 1216 having previously been captured by the King in 1215. He was then entrusted to Peter de Mauley and his lands were confiscated, being restored in 1217.

    "Under Henry III Moulton became an important royal agent in the north; between 1217 and 1218 he was an itinerant justice for Cumberland, Westmorland, Lancashire, Yorkshire, and Northumberland. In 1224 he sat as a justice at Westminster, a position he held until 1236. In 1229 he was made Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, a position he held until 1233 and again between 1234 and 1236. Between 1233 and 1236 he was High Sheriff of Cumberland and constable of Carlisle Castle. His last activity was in 1238, when he worked as a surveyor of the royal demesne in Cumberland, dying in 1240."

    From Complete Peerage IX:399-401:

    Thomas de Multon, son and heir. He was the builder of the family fortunes both by his personal abilities and the rich marriages which he contrived to secure for himself and his children. He had succeeded his father by 1201; in 1202 was abroad in the King's service, and had pardon of tallage for himself and his men in 1204. He gave 500 marks in 1205 to be sheriff of Lincs for 7 years, but was thrown into prison in Rochester in the summer of 1208. His brother Alan appears to have served for him with the King in Ireland in 1210, and he himself to have taken part in the King's campaign in North Wales in the following year. He had regained credit and the King's favour by 1213. He presumably took part in John's disastrous expedition to Poitou, February to November 1214, and was with the King at Guildford early in 1215, but at the Easter meeting at Stamford declared himself on the side of the Barons. In December he was taken at the capture of Rochester Castle, and imprisoned at Corfe. His castle of Moulton and lands were seized and committed to the Earl of Chester. Negotiations for his liberation went on till after the death of John, and a heavy ransom was paid. He was excommunicated by name among the insurgent Barons and their chief adherents. He returned to his allegiance 29 July 1217. In 1218, after his 2nd marriage, he had order for livery of the castle of Egremont and lands in Coupland, and all his wife's lands in Cumberland and Westmorland, and was made justice in Eyre of those counties and Lancs. He was appointed a justice of the Common Pleas in 1224, and sat till 1236. He was knighted by November 1224. In Feb. following at Westminster he witnessed the confirmation of the Magna Carta and the Charter of the Forest. In 1226 he was appointed chief keeper of the annual fair at Boston. In April 1230 he was in charge of money and jewels which the King was taking to France; in May he was made joint keeper of the coast and ports of Lincs; and in October the castle of Miserden, Glos., was committed to him. He was appointed sheriff of Cumberland, with custody of Carlisle Castle, 27 January1232/3, acting till Easter 1236; and in April 1238 a commissioner to 'extend' lands in Cumberland and Northumberland for the King of Scots.

    He married, 1stly, possibly circa 1190, Sarah, daughter and heir of Richard de Flete (son of Josce de Flete), by Juliane, who brought him the manor of Fleet, Lincs. He married, 2ndly, before 10 March 1217/8, Ada, widow of Richard de Lucy (died 1213), and elder daughter and coheir of Hugh de Morvill, by Heloise de Stuteville, which Ada was mother of the two heiresses to whom he married his sons (see Lucy).

  5. 12.  Reynold de Lucy (son of Richard de Lucy and Rohese de Boulogne); died about Jan 1199.

    Notes:

    "Reynold de Lucy, ancestor of this family, was probably a near kinsman of the great justiciar Richard de Luci. He was associated with the county of Cumberland as early as 1158. From 1168 to 1175 he was in charge of the Honour of Peverel of Nottingham; and was keeper of Nottingham Castle when it was taken and burnt by Earl Ferrers in the rebellion of 1174. In 1181 he was in Ivry. In 1187, he escorted Henry II's granddaughter, daughter of Henry the Lion of Saxony, from Southampton to the Continent. He was present at the Coronation of Richard I in September 1189." [Complete Peerage]

    That Reynold / Reginald de Lucy was a son of Richard de Lucy the justiciar has been shown by Rosie Bevan and Peter G. M. Dale in their paper "Reginald de Lucy, Son of Richard de Lucy, King's Justiciar: New Perspectives" (citation details below), in which they transcribe a copy of the original charter of gift by Richard de Lucy to the church of Holy Trinity, London of 20 shillings rent from his vill of Newington, Kent, for the soul of his wife Rose, witnesses to which include "Geoffrey de Lucy and Reginald his brother." This copy was "found in a folio entitled A Collection of Deeds and Seals comprising copies of charters and seals commissioned by the English antiquary, Elias Ashmole", and the authors carefully document its provenance and connection to the original, which probably perished in the fire in Elias Ashmole's rooms in Middle Temple in 1679.

    Bevan and Dale also opine that the 1199 death date given for Reginald / Reynold de Lucy may actually be that of his son Reginald, and that this Reginald may have died earlier.

    Reynold married Amabel Fitz William before 1162. Amabel (daughter of William Fitz Duncan and Alice de Rumilly) died before 1201. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
