  • Notes 
    • Steward of the Household to Henry III, 1225–36; keeper of Woodstock and Oxford castles; and, in right of his 1st wife, of Winstone, Gloucestershire.

      "He entered the king's household as a household knight sometime before 1209, and subsequently became a royal diplomat. He was in Poitou on the king's service in 1221. He was granted a weekly market and yearly fair at Crowcombe, Somerset, 1227, Beer Crowcombe, Somerset, 1231, and Corsley, Wiltshire, 1232, and a yearly fair at Milton, Cambridgeshire, 1229. In 1244 he and his wife, Joan, gave the king 5 marks for having a writ concerning liberties. In 1245 he gave Studley Priory, Oxfordshire the manor of Corsley, Wiltshire, requesting that the nuns support two chaplains celebrating divine service daily for the souls of himself and his 2nd wife, Joan. Sometime before 1246 he gave half the manor of Crowcombe, Somerset, together with the advowson of the church, to Studley Priory, Oxfordshire for the health of his souls and those of his wives, Alice and Joan. In August 1246 the king granted him timber to build a solarium at Studley, Oxfordshire." [Douglas Richardson, citation details below]
