From The Topographer and Genealogists, 1853, Vol. II, p. 130-131:
Sir John Tregoze, Lord Baron Tregoze,only son and heir of Robert Tregoze and his wife Juliana Cantilupe, "did homage and obtained livery of his father's lands 52 Henry III (1268), and stood in such favour with royalty that, notwithstanding his father's treason, he was acquitted of 50 marks of 100l then due for his relief; after which he attended Edward I. into Wales, in the expedition made thither in the early part of his reign.
"By the Plac, de quo warranto, we find John Treooze, in 8 Edward I. summoned to show by what title be claimed wrecks, waifs, and estrays, in his manor of Burneham, in Somersetshire; when he showed that it was the right of his ancestors and no usurpation of the royal prerogative. In the following year he was summoned to show why he claimed free warren in Lydyard Tregoze, in Wilts, without the King's licence; and in 20th Edward I. he received a like summons regarding the manor of Retby in Irchingfield, in Herefordshire, when he answered he held it with Mabelia his wife, and would not show his title without her. In the 20th Edw. I. he was also summoned to prove his title to divers other prerogatives, viz. the correcting the infrinuement of the assize of bread and ale, and the holding Crown Pleas within his manor of Mathuenleye and Eton; when he showed they had been his ancestors' rights immemorially.
"In 13 Edward I. (1284/5) he obtained licence to hold either a fair, or had free warren granted, at the following places, Eton in Herefordshire, Burneham and Cheleworth in Somersetshire, Lydiard and Alinton in Wilts; and in 22nd Edward I. being in the campaign of Gascony, he had permission for his wife and family to reside in Devizes castle, and to have fires there.
"This Baron, during the latter part of his life was summoned to Parliament by writ as one of the Majores Barones; viz. on 26 Jan. 1296, 25th Edw. I. and on 6 Feb. 1299, 27th Edw. I.; and in the year 1300 was summoned to perform military service against the Scotch; but his death prevented it; for he died 21 Aug. 28th Edw. I. (1300), and was buried 12 kal. Sept. 28 Edward I. in the Priory of St. Augustin at Bristol.
"By the two Inq. post mort. made after that event, one in 28th, and the other 29th Edward I., we find that he died seised of an immense inheritance, viz. the castle and honour of Ewyas Harold with its members in the Marches of Wales, which he held by barony, the manor of Eton Tregoze in Herefordshire, and numerous estates in Wilts, Northamptonshire, and Salop, &c.; a mandate to seize for the King the lands of John Tregoze defunct, being issued to Walter de Gloucester in 28th Edward I.
"Long before this John Tregoze had married Mabel, daughter of Foulk Lord Fitzwarren; and this lady owned the manor of Weston in Bedfordshire, and the hamlet of Sturden, in Gloucestersbire, as appears by her Inq. post mortem, made 25th Edward I. (1296-7) she being described in the record as his wife. By her John Lord Tregoze had only two daughters." Eldest daughter, Clarissa Tregoze married Roger la Warre, and predeceased her father, leaving a son and heir, John la Warre, who on the death of John Tregoze, his grandfather, succeeded to Harold Ewyas castle and lordship. The second daughter, Sibilla Tregoze, who was still alive when her father died, married William de Grandison.
