About John de Grey

John Grey, 2nd Baron Grey de Wilton

John Grey, 2nd Baron Grey de Wilton (died 28 October 1323) was the son of Reginald de Grey, 1st Baron Grey de Wilton and his wife Maud daughter and heir of William, Baron FitzHugh.


His first office was as vice-justice of Chester from 1296 to 1297.[1]


He participated in the siege and capture of Caerlaverock Castle in July 1300. During the siege the English heralds composed a roll of arms, the Roll of Caerlaverock, in the form of verses of poetry, each describing the feats of valour of each noble and knight present, with a blazon of his armorials. Grey's arms are recorded as BARREE silver at the Asur entaillie o bende red engreellie.[2]

His first parliamentary appointment was that of Lord Ordainer in 1310, and was followed by an appointment as Justice of North Wales in c.1316 and Governor of Caernarfon Castle.[3] He was relieved of his constabulatory responsibilities the following year and called to raise troops in response to the insurrection led by Llywelyn Bren.


He served as Conservator of the peace for Bedfordshire in 1320.


In 1322, he was commanded to raise troops in Wales and join the royal muster at Coventry. He died the following year.
