  • Notes 
    • "His lands were seized by King Edward II when his father rebelled against the king and the Despensers. With his elder brother, Thomas, he pillaged Despenser property. He had restitution of his lands after the fall of the Despensers. In 1330 Kind Edward III retained him for life 'to attend him always.'" [Douglas Richardson, citation details below]

      He fought at Crécy. His shield is one of those in the great east window of Gloucester Cathedral, among those of others who fought at Crécy and at the siege of Calais.
