    EARLDOM of ARUNDEL (XII, 9 or 2) 1302 to 1326

    EDMUND FITZ ALAN, Earl of Arundel, son and heir, born 1 May 1285, in the Castle of Marlborough. His wardship was obtained by John, Earl of Surrey, whose granddaughter he married. He was knighted, with Edward, the King's son, and many others, 22 May 1306. On 9 November 1306 he was summoned to Parliament as Earl of Arundel, and took part in the Scottish wars of that year. On 25 February 1307/8 he officiated as Pincerna at the coronation of Edward II. In 1316 he was Captain General north of the Trent. For a long time he was in opposition to the King, and was violent against Piers Gaveston, who had beaten him in a tournament. However in 1321 he changed sides, and married his first son to a daughter of Hugh le Despenser, being thereafter one of the few nobles who adhered to the King. In 1323 he was Chief Justiciar of North and South Wales. Warden of the Welsh Marches 1325.

    He m., in 1305, while still a minor, Alice, only daughter of William de Warenne (only son and heir apparent of John, Earl of Surrey), by Joan, daughter of Robert de Vere, Earl of Oxford. Having been captured in Shropshire by the Queen's party, he was, without trial, beheaded at Hereford, 17 November 1326 in his 42nd year. He was subsequently attainted, when his estates and honours became forfeited. His widow [who, in her issue was, in 1347, sole heir of her brother John, Earl of Surrey and Sussex, and consequently of the great family of Warenne] was living 1330, but died before 23 May 1338. [Complete Peerage I:241-2, XIV:38, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]


    Edmund Fitz-Alan, 8th Earl of Arundel. We find this nobleman, from the 34th Edward I [1306], to the 4th of the ensuing reign [1311], constantly engaged in the wars of Scotland; but he was afterwards involved in the treason of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, yet not greatly to his prejudice, for, in the 10th Edward II [1317], his lordship was constituted lieutenant and captain-general to the king, from the Trent northwards, as far as Roxborough, in Scotland, and for several years subsequently, he continued one of the commanders of the English army in Scotland, in which service he so distinguished himself, that he obtained a grant from the crown of the confiscated property of Lord Badlesmere, in the city of London and county of Salop, as well as the escheated lands of John, Lord Mowbray, in the Isle of Axholme, and several manors and castles, part of the possessions (also forfeited) of Roger, Lord Mortimer, of Wigmore. But those royal grants led, eventually, to the earl's ruin, for, after the fall of the unhappy Edward into the hands of his enemies, Lord Arundel, who was implacably hated by the queen and Mortimer, suffered death by decapitation at Hereford, in 1326. His lordship m. 1305, the Lady Alice Plantagenet, sister and sole heir of John, last Earl of Warren and Surrey of that family, by whom he had issue, Richard, his successor; Edmund (Sir), m. Sibil, dau. of William Montacute, Earl of Salisbury, and had one dau., Alice, m. to Leonard, Lord Carew; Alice, m. to John de Bohun, Earl of Hereford; Jane, m. to Warine Gerrard, Lord L'Isle; and Alaive, m. to Sir Roger le Strange. His lordship was s. by his eldest son, Richard Fitz-Alan. [Bernard Burke, Dormant and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd, London, 1883, p. 200, Fitz-Alan, Earls of Arundel]
