John FitzAlan, 13th Earl of Arundel (1385-1421) was an English nobleman. He became Baron Arundel on his father's death in 1390 and Baron Maltravers on his grandmother's death in 1405. In 1415 his cousin Thomas FitzAlan, 12th Earl of Arundel died, leaving FitzAlan as his closest male heir. The Earldom of Arundel had been entailed to heirs male, and so the next year FitzAlan was summoned to parliament as Earl of Arundel.
However the inheritance was challenged by Thomas Mowbray, 1st Duke of Norfolk, who was married to the late Earl's eldest sister. The dispute was not settled during their lifetimes, and John was subsequently summoned to Parliament as Baron Maltravers, not Earl of Arundel.

This was combined with this profile;
They are two different profiles for 2 different people
One family was FitzAlan, and the Other was Arundel
And actually if you wanted to eliminate all confusion between the location Arundel and the Family; Spell the name correctly it's Arundell not Arundel. It has 2 l's in it.
