    ------------------------

    EARLDOM OF OXFORD (V) 1263

    ROBERT (DE VERE), EARL OF OXFORD, Hereditary Master Chamberlain of England, son and heir, born circa 1240, did homage 5 March 1263/4. He joined Simon de Montfort and was knighted by him before the battle of Lewes, 14 May 1264. In June he attested Simon's ordinance for the peace of the realm, and in December 1264 he was summoned to Simon's Parliament. On 16 February 1264/5 he was forbidden, with other magnates, to tourney at Dunstable or elsewhere. In 1265 he assisted the younger Simon de Montfort in plundering Winchester, and was captured when they were surprised at Kenilworth on 1 August. On 27 October 1265 the King granted the comitatus and honor of Oxford to Roger de Mortimer, but Robert recovered them under the Dictum de Kenilworth, and in March 1267/8 he made an agreement with Roger for payment for the return of his lands and for the marriage of his eldest son to Roger's daughter Margaret. He did not recover the Chamberlainship, but there is some reason to believe that he was allowed to execute the office at the Coronation of Edward I in 1274. On 12 November 1276 he was present at the Council concerning Llewelyn; and he was summoned to serve against the Welsh in 1277, 1282, and 1283, and to the Parliaments held in 1283, 1295 and 1296. In 1290 Robert attended the marriage of the Princess Margaret to John of Brabant, with a retinue of 12 knights, sumptuously arrayed. In 1292 he was at Berwick, taking part in the proceedings to decide the question of the Scottish succession. The Earl was a benefactor to the Knights Hospitallers, Hatfield Priory, and Thremhall Priory.

    He married Alice, daughter and heir of Gilbert DE SANFORD, hereditary Chamberlain to the Queen for her Coronation, by Lorette, daughter of (------). Robert died before 7 September 1296, and was buried at Earls Colne, his heart being buried in the Grey Friars, Ipswich. Alice, who survived him, died before 9 (probably 7) September 1312, at Canfield, and was buried at Earls Colne. [Complete Peerage X:216-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
