    ROBERT (DE VERE), EARL OF OXFORD, 1st son and heir, born probably circa 24 June 1257. In 1296 he served in Gascony, where he still was at the time of his father's death; but he did homage at Neyland by Bury 5 December, and was invited (30 December) to the wedding of Princess Elizabeth to the Count of Holland, 7 January, at lpswich. He was summoned to the Assembly of Peers, 24 February 1296/7, at Sidisbury. During the King's absence in Flanders (August 1297 to March 1297/8) he was a member of the Prince's Council. He was summoned for service in Scotland, 1298 to 1301, and in July 1298 he served with the 4th division at the battle of Falkirk. In 1299-1301 he served overseas. He was summoned to Edward I's last Parliament at Carlisle in 1306, but was excused by the King. He was summoned to the Coronation of Edward II, 25 February 1307/8. In the following year he was one of the five Earls who, owing to their hostility to Gavaston, refused to attend the secret Parliament at York. He was summoned to serve against the Scots in nearly every year from 1309 to 1323, and again in 1327. In 1322 he was in arms with the King at Lichfield against the Earl of Lancaster; and in 1324 he was summoned for the projected expedition in defence of Aquitaine. At the Coronation of Queen Philippe, 1330, he claimed the right to officiate as her Chamberlain, and his claim was allowed. He tried repeatedly to recover the office of Chamberlain of England, but the claim was still pending at his death. His only son having died s.p., he had licence on 15 March 1330 to entail his estates on his nephew John. He was a benefactor to Earls Colne, Hatfield Broadoak, and Netley Abbey.

    He married Margaret, sister of Edmund, 1st LORD MORTIMER, of Wigmore, and daughter of Roger DE MORTIMER, by Maud, 1st daughter and coheir of William DE BRIOUZE. She died probably circa 1296-97, and was buried at the Grey Friars, Ipswich. He died s.p.s., 17 April 1331, and was buried at Earls Colne. [Complete Peerage X:219-20, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
