    ROBERT (DE HOLAND), LORD HOLAND, son and heir, was under age at his father's death, being then aged 16. His marriage was quickly granted to his mother, who offered 500 marks. He received the custody of Chelveston, Northants, in 1333 in reward for his services in the war with Scotland. He proved his age and had livery of his lands in 1335, and next year is described as a knight. He fought in the wars with France, and, being in the retinue of the Earl of Warwick in April 1346, was probably present at Crécy, 26 August 1346, and in Nov. 1347 he is stated to have served in the King's retinue. In March 1347 he assisted Sir John de Dalton to abduct Margery de la Beche from Beaumes Manor, near Reading. In 1355 he again went overseas. He was summoned to a Council 25 February 1341/2, and to Parliament from 1 June 1363 till his death. He appears to have resided chiefly in Northants, where he was appointed on various Commissions judicial and military, and in 1360 was a guardian of Garendon Abbey. He added to the endowment of Upholland Priory in 1367.

    He married Elizabeth, who appears to have predcceased him. He died 16 March 1372/3, at Halse or Hawes, Brackley, and was buried in St. James's Chapel, Brackley. [Complete Peerage VI:531, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Note: Elizabeth has been tentatively identified --see notes under her.
