John Lovel, son and heir, aged 30 at his father's death, had livery of his lands 11 January 1252/3. In 1255 he was in the service of the young Prince Edward in Gascony. In July 1257 he was summoned toBristol for the King's ineffectual campaign against Llewelyn. He was one of the few Barons who supported the King before the outbreak of civil war, and in March 1264, after Henry's return from France, where Louis had made the unpopular Award of Amiens, as arbitrator between the Crown and the Barons, Lovel was entrusted with the castle of Northampton. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Lewes, 14 May 1264. In September 1265 before which time he had been knighted, he was made a commissioner to deal with lands of rebels in Northants. In the summer of 1270 he was raising money to accompany Prince Edward in the last Crusade. The service against Llewelyn for which he was summoned 1276-7 was performed by his son John, on account of his illness; in 1282 the same service was done by two servientes.
