--------------------

In the 28th year of Henry III, upon the division made of the property of Hugh De Albini, E. Arundel, then made, had the castle of Arundel assigned to him for his principal seat, thus becoming the 5th E. Arundel; and soon after that, in consideration of 1,000 pounds fine, had livery of his own castles of Clun, Blancminster, and Schrawurthen. In the 42nd year of Henry III, he was made captain-general of all the forces designated for guarding the Welsh marches. He was on a commission to sign a truce with Llewellyn ap Griffith, Jun 1259. He was made Keeper of Salop and Stafford, Dec 1263. He fought at Lewes for the King on 14 May 1264. On 18 Sep 1264, he and others besieged Pevensey Castle, and captured enemies of the King. A mandate was issued to Simon De Montfort, son of the E. Leicester, to take security from John Fitzalan, who was under suspicion, either his son as hostage or Arundel Castle. This mandate insisted that he deliver one or the other to Simon, 26 Apr 1265. He was made Keeper of Sussex, where he was to stay and arrest disturbers, 18 Apr 1266, and to repress disturbances there, 27 Jan 1267.
