John Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings
Hastings was the son of Henry de Hastings, who was summoned to Parliament by Simon de Montfort, 6th Earl of Leicester as Lord Hastings in 1263. However, this creation was not recognized by the King Henry III of England although John Hastings is sometimes referred to as the second Baron Hastings. His mother was Joanna de Cantilupe, sister and heiress of his uncle George de Cantilupe(d.1273).
In 1290 he had unsuccessfully contested the Scottish crown as grandson of Ada, third daughter of David of Scotland, Earl of Huntingdon, who was a grandson of King David I. The same year he was summoned to the English Parliament as Lord Hastings.
In 1301, he signed a letter to Pope Boniface VIII, protesting against papal interference in Scottish affairs.
