    "He appears to have repeatedly served in the wars of his time. In 1372 he had gone on board the King's fleet but falling suddenly and dangerously ill and being unable to continue his sea voyage he was compelled to go ashore at the town of Rye; whereupon the circumstances of his case having first been returned into the Chancery under the seal of Simon Burgh, Constable of Rochester Castle, a writ was sent to the mayor and bailiffs of the town to exonerate him from blame, and instructing them to allow him, with John Heton, his esquire, and his two valets, to return home with all his equipage unmolested. He was Constable of the Castle of Knaresborough and Lieutenant and Master Forester of the forest of Knaresborough."
