  • Notes 
    • Sheriff of Northamptonshire 1419.

      "[H]ad free warren in his manors of Pilkington, etc.; fought at Agincourt, 25 October 1415, with a retinue of 3 esquires, 10 lancers, and 45 archers; was a witness at the Scrope v. Grosvenor trial." [The Wallop Family, citation details below]

      The History of the Pilkington Family (citation details below) concurs with the above, save for giving him only 40 archers at Agincourt.
