"In 1293, he was summoned to attend King Edward I. into Gascoign, in order to recover his Inheritance from the French King, to which Place he went, in the Retinue of Edmund Earl of Lancaster. In 1296 he was in the Welsh Expedition, and in 1299, in the Scotch Wars... (He) alien'd Baniard's Castle in London, and Montfitchet Tower to the Archbishop of Canterbury, reserving his Barony that belonged to it, to himself and his Heirs. He was the first of this Family that stil'd himself Lord of Wodeham in Essex, where he had a Seat and a fine Park. He had two Wives, Devorgil... and Eleanor...by whom he had Robert his Son who succeeded him: In this Year he obtained a Charter of Confirmation for a Fair every Year at his Manor of Diss, upon the Eve, Day, and Morrow, after the Feast of St. Simon and Jude, and three Days following: He was one of those Parliamentary Barons that sealed the Letter to the Pope, Anno 1301, denying that the Kingdom of Scotland was his Fee... It seems as if the Church of Diss was built by this Man, his Arms cut in Stone still remaining several Times on the South Porch."
