    BARONY of FELTON (II)

    SIR JOHN DE FELTON, of Litcham, son and heir. He was in the Army of Scotland in 1310, and was knighted, 13 November 1310. On 26 November 1314 he was appointed Keeper of the castle and manor of Alnwick, then in the King's hand by reason of the minority of Henry de Percy, during pleasure: on 30 December 1315 he was reappointed, on different terms, also during pleasure. On 27 November 1317 he had been captured by the Scots [emulos suos), so that lie could not then perform his duties as Keeper of Alnwick. A few days afterwards, 6 December, he was Constable of the castle of Newcastle-on-Tyne. On 13 November 1318 he was ordered to deliver the castle and manor of Alnwick to Henry de Percy. He was, in the same month, about to go to Gascony with William de Mountagu, Seneschal of that province. He was Keeper of Ellesmere Castle, Salop, 8 September 1320 to 19 June 1321. He was appointed Keeper of Red Castle, Salop, 18 January, and of the manor of Hodnet, Salop, 22 January 1321/2, both during pleasure. As Keeper of Red Castle, he was ordered, 16 February 1321/2, to join the King at Coventry on the first Sunday in Lent [28 February] following, to set out against the Scots and the contrariants. He was ordered to deliver the castle and manor to Roger Carles, 24 March 1321/2, but this order was cancelled, 10 April following. He was ordered to deliver up the manor of Hodnet, 20 December 1322. In May 1324 he was summoned to attend the Great Council. In June 1324 he was about to go to Gascony on the King's servicc. He was one of the three Admirals of England in 1325. On 20 March 1325/6 he was granted, for life, the castle of Lyonshall, co. Hereford, late of William Tuchet, a rebel. He remained faithful to Edward Il to the last. On 14 October 1326, the King, then at Tintern, ordered him to remain in the march of Wales for its defence against the rebels. Soon afterwards, the King, when at Caerphilly, appointed him Constable of that castle, where be sustained a siege by the Queen's party: this was first directed by Roger de Chaundos. On 30 December1326, and again, 15 February 1326/7, letters were sent him from Kenilworth ordering him, on pain of forfeiture, to deliver the castle and the King's goods therein, in the first case, to the said Roger, and in the second, to William la Zousche of Ashby. These orders proved ineffectual, although pardons were issued to him and his garrison at short intervals, 4 January, 10, 15 and 20 February 1326/7, and he still held out against William la Zousche, until Hugh, son of Hugh le Despenser the younger, who was in the castle, and had been specially excepted from pardon, was included, 20 March 1326/7.

    He married Sibyl. He was living in 1334. His widow held half a knight's fee in Litcham in 1346. [Complete Peerage V:576-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
