From 26 (1241/2) to 32 (1247/8) Hen III, he held the office of sheriff of Kent with Bertram de Criol. He was raised to the bench about 28 Hen III, fines being levied before him from Easter in that year, 1244, until Michaelmas 1250 [Dugdale's Orig. 43] during which time also writs of assize were frequently directed to him.
