    EARLDOM of ARUNDEL (XIX, 14 or 7) 1421

    JOHN D'ARUNDEL, [who, in right of either his father's writ or of the admission of 1433] may be considered Earl of Arundel. Son and heir born 14 February 1407/8, at Lytchett Mautravers, Dorset. Created K.B. at Leicester, by the young King, under the name of "Dominus de Maultravers." His claim to the Earldom of Arundel not having been recognised, he was, when of age, summoned to Parliament on 12 July and 3 August 1429, by writs directed Johanni Arundel' de Arundell' Chivaler, whereby he is held to have become Lord Arundel. In December 1431 he was in the coronation of Henry VI at Paris. He greatly distinguished himself in the French wars, and was made Captain of the Castle of Rouen in February 1431/2. On 22 April 1432 he was created K.G.; and in November 1433 his petition to be considered Earl of Arundel by tenure of the Castle of Arundel, was allowed, but he was never afterwards summoned to Parliament as an Earl or a Baron. He was created, in 1434, Duke of Touraine in France, by the Regent Bedford. The Earl was severely wounded and taken prisoner at the siege of Gerberoy, in the Beauvaisis, in May 1435, was carried to Beauvais, where his leg was amputated. He died several weeks later 12 June 1435 and was buried in the Grey Friars there, though, in accordance with his will, his body was reinterred in a noble tomb at Arundel.

    He married 1stly [or, more probably, was contracted as a minor to] Constance, daughter of John [Cornwall], Lord Fanhope, by Elizabeth, daughter and coheir of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. She died s.p. and v.p. before 1429. He married 2ndly, before 1429, Maud, widow of Sir Richard Stafford of Southwick, Wilts [who died about 1427], daughter and heir of Robert Lovell (younger son of John, 5th Lord Lovell of Titchmarsh), by Elizabeth, daughter and coheir of Sir Guy Bryene, who was 1st son and heir apparent of Sir Guy Bryene [Lord Bryene]. She died 19 May 1436. [Complete Peerage I:247-8, XIV:39, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
