Sir Robert Tilliol represented Cumberland in six Parliaments between 1352 and 1365, and won for himself a degree of local celebrity by leading a highly successful raiding party, in 1357, against the Scots. At some point he actually took possession of certain unspecified estates over the border near Berwick-upon-Tweed, which he was able to pass on to his eldest son, Peter, the subject of this biography. Sir Robert died on 6 Apr. 1367, just two days after settling the manor of Ireby upon his widow, Felicity, for life.
