Robert attempted to take Bothal castle and manor from his younger brother John Bertram. Along with 200 men, Robert and his forces attacked the castle for four days in 1410.
One chronicler said Robert was jealous, while Parliament still refers to Bertram as the family "favorite."
After Bertram complained to Parliament, Robert had to go before the King to explain himself ... then give the property back! But at least some redemption was bound to happen...
According to Ogle & Engler (2012), Robert was the more powerful of the two sons, and had the favor of the king. After he, "satisfied the council," his "lands were immediately restored." That same month, he landed on the commission looking for a truce with Scotland.
On 21 May 1399 Robert married, Maud Grey (d. aft. 1454).
m.2 (aft. 01 Sep 1425) Sir John Middleton of Belsay, co. Northumb. (b. c. 1373), s. & h. of Sir John Middleton (d. 9 Aug. 1396) of East Swinburn, Northumb. & Christine (d. 10 Apr. 1422), d. & coh. of Elizabeth Acton of Jesmond
Well after the family feud over Bothal Castle, Robert helped the Earl of Northumberland capture James, King of Scotland in 1423. Three years later, he was Northumberland's Sheriff, and in 1434 he and his son Robert, 1st Baron Ogle, were both serving as commissioners to keep the peace with Scotland.
