Dates?[edit]

One of his last positions was held until 1419, and he supposedly began at that position one year prior to his death in 1414. Any explanations for this? I'll add a fact tag until this is discovered. Mattygabe (talk)

All sources that I have seen confirm he died in 1414. It may be that he was appointed in 1313, was sent for six years and died in 1414 but the TERM nonetheless ended 1419, however, the Manx Notebook (Volume 3)(1887) Edited by A. W. Moore, states "In 1408 he was sent, as Lord Lieutenant, back to Ireland where he died in 1414. His body was returned to Lathom and buried in Burscough Priory near Ormskirk." (talk)
