    SIR JOHN DEVEREUX, or DEVEROSE of Lyonshall, Dorstone, and Whitechurch Maund in Bodenham, co. Hereford, and Dinton, Bucks. His parentage is unknown, but he was probably a younger son of William DEVEROSE, of Bodenham who died in 1376/7.

He assisted the Duke of Brittany in his campaign in that province in 1375. On 20 May 1377 the Prince of Wales gave him 200 marks a year for life, for his services during the Prince's journey into Spain and in the wars in Guienne. On the accession of Richard II he was appointed a member of the Council constituted to act during the King's minority, 20 July 1377.

He was summoned to Parliament 28 September 1384 to 23 November 1392, by writs directed Johanni Devereux, whereby he is held to have become LORD DEVEREUX. The payment of 310 of the 370 marks mentioned above was remitted 10 September 1385, because the King had made him a banneret and placed him at the Standard. In November 1385 he bought, for 1,000 from Sir Robert Hereford and Elizabeth his wife, late the wife of James, Earl of Ormond, the castle of Kilpeck, co.
