    BARONY OF WILLOUGHBY (III) 1349

    JOHN (DE WILLOUGHBY), LORD WILLOUGHBY, or LORD WILLOUGHBY DE ERESBY, son and heir, was born at Eresby manor and baptised 6 January 1328/9 in the church of St. James, Spilsby. By indenture, May 1347, he, being then a knight, was to stay with the Prince of Wales with 5 men-at-arms for one year, being presumably with the Prince at the siege of Calais in 1347. Although a minor he was granted the wardship of his lands, 27 October 1349, and he had seisin thereof, 23 February 1349/50. He was summoned to Parliament from 25 November 1350 to 8 January 1370/1, by writs directed Johanni de Wilughby de Eresby, or Johanni de Wilughby. In 1355 he went to Gascony with the Prince; he fought at Poitiers, 19 September 1356; and was apparently left behind to take part in the government of Gascony when the Prince returned to England, April 1357. He also took part in the King's campaign in France, 1359-60, and in that of the Duke of Lancaster there, 1369; and served again under Lancaster at the siege of Montfont, in Gascony, early in 1371.

    He married, before 1349, Cecily, sister and (in her issue) coheir of William (DE UFFORD), 2nd EARL OF SUFFOLK, 2nd but 1st surviving daughter of Robert, 1st EARL OF SUFFOLK, by Margaret, great-aunt and (in her issue) heir of John (de Norwich), 2nd Lord Norwich, daughter of Sir Walter DE NORWICH, of Sculthorpe, Norfolk. She died before him. He died 29 March 1372, aged 43, and was buried at Spilsby. [Complete Peerage XII/2:659-60, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
