    JOHN DE SAINT PHILIBERT, son and heir, was aged 6 on 6 January 1332/3. In 1345, before he was of age, he was illegally arrested, when on pilgrimage, at Pisa, being released only in 1347; in that year he was in the retinue of the Prince of Wales in France, and was serving in France and Gascony 1348, 1349, 1355, 1356 and 1358. He did homage for his lands 11 January 1347/8. He was summoned to Parliament 20 November 1348 by writ addressed Johanni de Sancto Philiberto, which Parliament was twice postponed, St. Philibert being re-summoned for each postponement (but never afterwards), whereby he is held to have become LORD ST. PHILIBERT.
    He appears to have married, 1stly, when a child of 4, Joan, daughter of Robert (DE UFFORD), LORD UFFORD, afterwards created EARL OF SUFFOLK, by Margaret, sister to John de Norwich to whose grandson John her issue ultimately became heirs, widow of Thomas (DE CAILLY), LORD CAILLY, and daughter of Sir Walter DE NORWICH. He married, 2ndly, before 3 September 1347, when she was aged 18, Margaret, elder sister and coheir of Edmund (DE ST. JOHN), LORD ST. JOHN (of Basing), and daughter of Hugh, LORD ST. JOHN, by Mirabel his wife, and died overseas, 3 September 1358, having alienated at least the bulk of his own inheritance to the Crown, in possession or in reversion. His widow was living in April 1361. [Complete Peerage XI:367, XIV:566, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Is this him:
    In 1345, the second Lord de St. Philibert went on a pilgrimage to Italy with friends, at the age of only eighteen. They were unjustly imprisoned in Pisa and, in retaliation, King Edward III threw all merchants from that city then resident in England into the Tower of London until young St. Philibert was released. Unfortunately, this still took two years! He then served with the Black Prince in France and Gascony.

    The Lords St. Philibert were chiefly resident at Sulham, near Reading, but they also held the manors of Cresswells (Bray), Eaton Hastings & elsewhere.
