About John FitzAlan, 6th Earl of Arundel

Lord Oswestry, Clun, and Arundel, was an English nobleman. He is sometimes counted as 6th Earl of Arundel (5th Earl of Arundel), although he was never called earl during his lifetime. He married Maud le Boteler, daughter of Theobald le Botiller (Boteler) and Rohese (or Rohesia) de Verdun.

He was the son of John Fitzalan, Lord of Oswestry, from whom he inherited a great estate in Shropshire, and Isabel d'Aubigny, daughter of William d'Aubigny, 4th Earl of Arundel. After the death without direct heirs of his mother's brother Hugh d'Aubigny, 5th Earl of Arundel, he inherited a quarter of the earl's estate, including Arundel.
