    JOHN (DE HASTINGES), EARL OF PEMBROKE and LORD HASTINGES, only son and heir, born 29 August 1347, at Sutton Valence, and baptised the same day in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin there. At his father's death he remained under his mother's care. In 1362 and 1363 he was granted the wardship of several manors which had been held by his father, and on 20 December 1364 the wardship of all his father's lands in England and Wales. In October 1364 he was with the King at Dover. On 3 November 1367 he was appointed keeper of all the lands which (his grandmother) Juliane, late Countess of Huntingdon held in dower or otherwise. He proved his age on 12 September 1368, and having done homage and fealty, was granted seisin of his lands in England, and (in October) of his lands in Ireland and Wales. In 1369 he proceeded to Aquitaine with the Earl of Cambridge, was knighted at the taking of Bourdeille (Périgord), and served in Poitou and Anjou. He was nominated K.G. circa 1370, in which year he joined the Prince of Wales in the sack of Limoges, and after the Prince's departure for England he was with Lancaster at the siege of Montpaon, January-February 1370/1; but soon afterwards he was recalled to England by the King. In 1371 Pembroke was a trier of petitions. On 20 April 1372 he was appointed Lieutenant of the King's forces in Aquitaine, and he sailed in command of a fleet with reinforcements. He tried to relieve La Rochelle, but was defeated by a much more powerful Spanish fleet in a battle lasting two days, and he was captured, 23 June. He was taken to Spain and kept in prison for nearly 3 years, being treated very harshly. Bertrand du Guesclin, Constable of France, then bought his release and he was taken to Paris, where his ransom was fixed at 120,000 francs. He was conveyed towards Calais, but worn out with illness and fatigue, he died on the way in Picardy.

    He married, 1stly, in 1359, Margaret, 4th daughter of EDWARD III, by PHILIPPE of Hainault, born 1347 at Calais. She died s.p., soon after 1 October 1361, and was buried in Abingdon Abbey. He married, 2ndly, in or after July 1368, Anne, daughter and heir of Walter (DE MAUNY), LORD MAUNY, K.G., by Margaret (created Duchess of Norfolk in 1397), daughter and heir of Thomas (DE BROTHERTON), EARL OF NORFOLK, son of EDWARD I. He died 16 April 1375, in Picardy, his body being brought to England, and buried, after 28 April, in the church of the Friars Preachers at Hereford. He made two wills, dated 5 May 1372 and 26 March 1374 respectively. His widow, who was born 24 July 1355, and is held, by modern doctrine, to have become Baroness Mauny on the death of her father in January 1371/2, died 3 April 1384.
