In the 5th Edward II [1312], his lordship was constituted governor of Buckingham Castle, in Northamptonshire, and steward of Rockingham Forest. He d. in 1314, leaving by Eleanor, his wife, dau. of Nicholas de Segrave, three daus., his co-heirs, viz., I. Ellen, m. 1st Nicholas St. Maur, and 2ndly, Alan de Charlton; Maud Zouche, m.

Amongst these three daus. and co-heirs of Alan le Zouche, a partition was made in the 8th Edward II [1315] of their father's lands, excepting the manor of Ashby-de-la-Zouche which the deceased lord gave to his kinsman, William de Mortimer, who thereupon assumed the surname Zouche. At the decease of Lord Zouche, the Barony of Zouche of Ashby fell into abeyance between his daus., as it still continues with their representatives.
