  • Notes 
    • Bailiff of the Forest of Macclesfield. Constable of Halton Castle. Esquire to Henry, Prince of Wales. Fought at Agincourt, emerging from the battle as a banneret.

      "Sir John (II) Savage (d. 1450) achieved success in royal service. Like his father, he served in France: Froissart records his complaint in 1390 at the tournament of St Inglevert that he had not crossed the sea merely to run one lance. Under Richard II he was appointed keeper of the park of Macclesfield, along with Piers Legh of Macclesfield. Yet he made the transition to the Lancastrian allegiance: soon after Bolingbroke's accession, Savage was granted a fee and in the first year of the reign he led troops in Henry IV's Scottish campaign. John (II) consolidated his interest around Macclesfield, receiving a lease of its mills in 1408, and he was often a justice on eyre in Cheshire. Knighted at Agincourt, in 1418 John (II) led 250 Cheshire men to Calais; he also received significant rewards from a ransom." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, citation details below]
