Note: He distinguished himself in the French wars, and 'won a brilliant naval victory over the French, Spanish and Flemish fleets off Margate in 1387'. Later, with the Duke of Gloucester, he took an active part in the opposition to king Richard, becoming one of the five Lords Appellant in the Parliament of 1388. He obtained a pardon in 1394, but was treacherously seized, tried at Westminster, and beheaded at Cheapside on 21 September 1397. He was buried at Austin Friar's, in Bread Street, London, and having been attainted, all his honours were forfeited
