Notes
a. Note:   Henry Fitz-Hugh, 4th baron, summoned to parliament from 17 December, 1387, to 1 September, 1423. This nobleman attained great eminence in the reigns of Henry IV and Henry V. In the beginning of the former, we find his lordship included in a commission to negotiated a truce with Scotland, and afterwards to accomplish a league of amity between the two crowns (of England and Scotland). In the 8th Henry IV [1407], he was accredited upon an important mission to Denmark, and in five years afterwards he was again a commissioner upon the affairs of Scotland. On the coronation of King Henry V [1413], Lord Fitz-Hugh was appointed constable of England for that solemnity, and the next year he obtained a grant from the crown of �100 per annum. He was afterwards lord chamberlain of the king's household and assisted at the council of Constance, for which, and his other eminent services, he had a grant of all the lands which had belonged to the attainted Henry, Lord Scrope, of Masham, lying in Richmondshire, to hold during the term that those lands should continue in the king;s hands, and upon the surrender of that grant in the same year, he had another grant for life of the manors of Masham, Clifton, Burton-Constable, and ten others, likewise part of the possessions of the aforesaid Lord Scrope. From the 5th to the 9th Henry V [1418-1422], his lordship was uninterruptedly engaged in the French wars, during which period he was at the siege of Roan with the Duke of Exeter.
