Gilbert had order for livery of his inheritance 11 December 1241. He was summoned, August 1260, for the campaign in Wales after the fall of Builth Castle; to be in London 29 October 1261, with all his available force, upon the King's urgent business; and, 25 May 1263 and 6 March 1263/4, for service in Wales. In 1264 Simon de Montfort was acting in alliance with Llewelyn; Gilbert seems either to have maintained his allegiance or to have returned to it immediately after Evesham, for he obtained a protection on 24 August 1265, and again in 1266. He was summoned again for service in Wales, 1276, 1282 and 1283, and to the Assembly at Shrewsbury, 1283. He was going overseas in 1281. In February 1283/4 he surrendered to the King and Queen Eleanor all his lands held in chief in consideration of an annuity equivalent to the yearly value of such lands.
