    BARONY OF FITZHUGH (IV, 5)

    WILLIAM (FITZHUGH), LORD FITZHUGH, 3rd but 1st surviving son and heir, aged 26 and more at his father's death. He accompanied the King to France in 1415, 1417, and 1421, being then a knight. On 9 August 1425 he had livery of the manor of Kingston, and the manor of Carlton, his lands in cos. York and Northumberland, and his tenements in the city of London, were liberated to him, 8 and 9 August, the escheators in cos. Notts and York being ordered to take his fealty for the manor of Kingston and the moiety of the advowson of Burnsall, respectively. After his mother's death, he was obliged to bring actions to obtain the lands which he inherited from her, as the King, owing to some mistake, had granted the custody of them to various persons. He was appointed a commissioner to treat with the Scots, 14 August 1433. In 1438/9 he made an unsuccessful attempt to regain Masham and the other manors which John Lescrope had recovered in 1425; alleging, in his petition, that judgment had been obtained by representations which were false, and that the manors had really been held in fee simple. On 1 February 1446/7 he had licence to succeed to L'Aigle and the other lands in Normandy which his father had held, and which had hitherto been unjustly detained from him. He was summoned to Parliament from 12 July 1429 to 5 September 1450, by writs directed Willelmo fitz Hugh' chivaler.

    He married, at Ravensworth, before 18 November 1406, Margery, daughter of Sir William DE WILLOUGHBY, of Eresby, co. Lincoln [LORD WILLOUGHBY], by his 1st wife, Lucy, daughter of Sir Roger LESTRAUNGE, of Knockin, Salop [LORD LESTRAUNGE]. He died 22 October 1452. His wife predeceased him.
