Simon was in several expeditions into Wales, particularly in 1282, when Llewellen lost his territory and life.
Simom Montacute made several campaigns with reputation both in France and Scotland, in the reign of Edward I. He was also Governor of Corffe Castle in Devonshire. In the Reign of Edward II. he again served in Scotland and was governor of the Castle of Beaumaris in the isle of Anglesey, and Admiral of the King's fleet.
His Coat of Arms the original shield of his ancestor Drogo First, (Azure---a Gryphon Segreant, or, [gold] as also did his father and each of his ancestors.
However, this Sir Simon changed the Arms to "Argent (white) three fusils * in fess gules (red)."
It is however recorded that Sir Simon used both Coats of Arms, the one which he had made and the other which he received by inheritance. Fortunately we are not left in doubt as to what Arms he really bore, for the Pope had at that time made unwarranted pretensions with regard to Scotland and had issued an insolent bull, to which all the barons of England had made reply in a letter which was signed by all the Barons, who affixed to their names, as their seals, their Coat of Arms. This letter to Pope Boniface VIII. was written in 1301, and was signed by Sir Simon de Montacute, with the other barons. Sir Simon married Aufricia, daughter of Fergusius, King of the isle of Man, descended from Orry, King of Denmark.
Their issue was William and Simon de Montacute, the former succeeded his father and continued the line, the latter was married to Hawise, daughter of Almeric lord St. Amand.
