    100 per annum. He was afterwards lord chamberlain of the king's household and assisted at the council of Constance, for which, and his other eminent services, he had a grant of all the lands which had belonged to the attainted Henry, Lord
    Scrope, of Masham, lying in Richmondshire, to hold during the term that those lands should continue in the king;s hands, and upon the surrender of that grant in the same year, he had another grant for life of the manors of Masham, Clifton,
    Burton-Constable, and ten others, likewise part of the possessions of the aforesaid Lord Scrope. From the 5th to the 9th Henry V [1418-1422], his lordship was uninterruptedly engaged in the French wars, during which period he was at the siege
    of Roan with the Duke of Exeter.
