From an unknown source:
He and his father were taken prisoner at the battle of Boroughbridge, Yorkshire, on March 16, 1321/22, where they were in arms against the King. He was summoned to Parliament from January 27, 1331/32, by writs directed Ricardo Talbot, whereby his is held to have become lord Talbot. Claiming large possessions in Scotland by right of his wife, he joined Edward Baliol in his invasion of Scotland in August, 1332, contrary to the King's orders, and was present at the defeat of the Scots by the "disinherited lords" at Dupplin Moor, Perthshire, Scotland, on August 12, 1332. He sat as "Dominus de Mar" in the Parliament held by Baliol at Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 10, 1333/34. In September, 1334, he was taken by the Scots near Linlithgow, Scotland, and imprisoned at Dumbarton, Scotland, but after leaving hostages for his ransom of 2000 pounds he was brought south under safe conduct from Edward III, dated April 2, 1335. He was keeper of the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberlandshire, and justiciar of the lands in Scotland occupied by the King of England on December 21, 1337. In 1341 he was chief justice in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. In May, 1345, he was steward of the King's household. Though wounded early in the campaign near the Seine, he was with the King at Crecy, France, on August 26, 1346.
