    Suffolk, other creations. His [Michael 1st Earl of Suffolk] career as diplomat and official flourished (he was Lord Chancellor in the mid-1380's) but his being a favourite of Richard II made him unpopular with the more established nobilityand he was tried "in absentia" for high treason and on being found guilty forfeited his titles. Shortly before Richard II's own fall the son, another Michael, was restored to his father's honours but this restoration was itself annulled on Henry IV's coming to the throne. Michael managed to make his peace with the new King, however, and had the Earldom restored to him a second time. [Burke's Peerage, p. 2761]

    II. 2.

    VI.2. MICHAEL DE LA POLE, 1st son and heir, was born in or before 1367; knighted at the Coronation of Richard II, 15 July 1377; and was going to Calais and in command of men-at-arms and archers, 3o April 1386. After his father's death, 5 September 1389, his fealty was taken by the King before 3 December following, and despite the attainder he had livery, as son and heir, of his maternal and paternal entailed estates, 1389-92. He accompanied the Duke of Gloucester on his attempted voyage to Prussia, September 1391. The proceedings of the Parliament of 11 Richard II having been annulled by Parliament, 28 January 1397/8, he was restored to his father's dignities, becoming thus EARL OF SUFFOLK and (accordingto modern peerage law) LORD DE LA POLE, and obtaining a patent, 19 June 1398, of the Earldom (only) with remainder to the heirs male of his body, whom failing, those of his father. But the Parliament of 1399 having annulled the proceedings of 21 Richard II and confirmed those of 11 Richard II aforesaid, he fell again under his father's attainder, whereby all his honours were (again) forfeited. However, he obtained restoration of most of his father's estates and, in consideration of his services after the king's advent, was restored, 15 November 1399, as EARL OF SUFFOLK (no mention again being made of the alleged Barony of de la Pole), with a remainder similar to that of 1398 aforesaid. He was Chief Commissioner of array for Suffolk, 15 December 1399; appears to have taken part in Henry IV's expedition into Scotland, August 1400; P.C. 1401; was about to leave the realm on the King's business, 27 August 1408, and was one of the Englishrepresentatives at the Great Council of Pisa, April 1409. While waiting at Southampton to accompany Henry V to France in 1415, he was appointed a Commissioner of oyer and terminer in that co., 31 July, and was one of the peers who took part in the trial of the Earl of Cambridge and Lord Scrope, 5 August. He married (contract 1 February 1382/3, to marry on 13 April or soon after), before 23 November 1383, Katherine, daughter of Hugh (DE STAFFORD], 2nd EARL OF STAFFORD, by Philippe, daughter of Thomas (DE BEAUCHAMP), EARL OF WARWICK. He died of theflux 18 September 1415 at the siege of Harfleur and was buried at Wingfield. M.I. His widow died 8 April 1419 and was buried with him. M. I. [CP 12[1]:441-2]
