      From the Complete Peerage (citation details below):

      John de Haverington, or Harington, s. and h. of Sir Robert de Haverington, of Harrington in Cumberland (d. 1297), by Agnes, da. and eventually h. of Aline, wife of Richard DE CANSFIELD, heiress of the family of Furness or Fleming of Muchland in Furness, was b. about 1281. He suc. his mother in 1293, and his father in 1297, being still under age. He was ceremonially knighted, 22 May 1306, when Edward, Prince of Wales, was made a knight at Westminster, and probably accompanied the Prince on his expedition to Scotland to avenge the murder of Comyn. A short time afterwards he had a dispute with the Abbot of Furness, his immediate lord, regarding services demanded by the Earl of Lancaster from Aldingham. He was sum. for Military Service 26 Oct. (1309) 3 Edw. II to 27 Mar. (1335) 9 Edw. III, to Councils from 30 Dec. (1324) 18 Edw. II (prorogued on 20 Feb., cancelled 8 Apr.) to 25 Feb. (1341/2) 16 Edw. III, and to Parl. from 3 Dec. (1326) 20 Edw. II to 30 July (1347) 21 Edw. III, by writs directed Johanni de Haveryngton' or Haryngton', whereby he is held to have become Lord Harington. As an adherent of the Earl of Lancaster he received pardon in 1313 for complicity in the murder of Piers de Gavaston, and a further pardon as the Earl's adherent Nov. 1318, and in that year obtained a grant of free warren in his demesnes of Austwick, Harrington and Thurnham. He was a commissioner of array in 1316, 1318, 1322 and 1324; was forbidden to attend the Earl of Lancaster's meeting of "good peers" at Doncaster, Nov. 1321, and does not seem to have taken part in the Earl's rising in the following spring; had a protection, June 1322, while assisting Andrew de Harcla in the Scottish Marches, but was outlawed in 1323 on the discovery of Harcla's treason, being pardoned on surrender; and later in that year was a custodian of the truce with the Scots. He was appointed on various commissions in the North to decide causes, array the local forces, &c. On the death s.p. of his brother Michael, he suc. him in possession of Beetham and Witherslack, Westmorland, and other estates. In 1336, in conjunction with Joan his wife, he made a settlement of his Lancashire manors: and, 6 Jan. 1340/1, he obtained a charter of free warren in Witherslack, and a park in Aldingham. He m. Joan. He d. 2 July 1347, and was bur. in Cartmel Church.
