Shortly afterwards he joined the Earl of Lancaster in rebellion against Edward II and the Despenserf family and within six months after his father's death he was sent prisoner to Wallingford Castle Jan. 20, 1321-2, where he died about four years later on May 31, 1326. He was buried there, but later removed to St. Augustine and buried under the arch before the choir door in the south aisle.
