    From Complete Peerage, Vol 12, Pt. 2, p. 299, 300:
    Held the barony of Bourne, County Lincoln. He was given control of his lands on October 20, 1259, after he reached majority. In September 1261 he came to London to aid the King and in September 1261 he swore to be failthful to the Crown. The following October he was called to London to support Henry III. On December 13, 1265 he accepted the aribtration of King Louis in the quarrel between the barons and the King, but the next year he was among the rebels captures by the Royal forces at Northampton and was imprisoned in Nottingham Castle. After the victory of the barons at Lewes in 1264, he was released, but was again captured by Prince Edward at Kenilworth just before the battle of Evesham in 1265. He escaped, opposed the King and seized Fotheringhay Castle, Northants. After being defeated in the company of the Earl of Derby at Chesterfield in May 1266, and having attacked the castle and sacked the city of Lincoln, he joined the rebels in the Isle of Axholme. In the summer of 1266 he was granted protection to appear before the King, stood trial that autumn and was pardoned in November provided he accepted the Dictum of Kenilworth. (The obligations of the Dictum placed him in heavy debt and made him surety for many rebels.) In June 1267 he was granted exemption from court sessions, juries, and from being made sheriff and on May 1, 1276 gained control of his mother's lands. He was present at the Council in Westminister that passed judgment on Llewelyn November 1276 and served in Wales in 1277, campaigning there in the household of the Earl of Gloucester.
    The second daughter of Ela and Sir Baldwin Wake, Elizabeth, married John de Hoobury [or Horbury]. They were in possession of land in Linslade in 1284-6. In 1316 Elizabeth died without issue and her heirs were her sister's grandsons, John de Patishull and John Pigot.
