  • Birth: 1 APR 1274
  • Death: 24 JUN 1314 in Bannockburn
  • Occupation: Fortifed Skipton Castle
  • Cause: Killed in battle
  • Note:

    The history of Skipton castle is inseparable from that of the Clifford family who were granted the property by Edward II in 1310, when Robert Clifford was appointed first Lord Clifford of Skipton and Guardian of Craven, the wide tract of countryside to the north and west of Skipton.
    The Clifford's Norman forebears took the name from Clifford Castle in Herefordshire which they also owned. Robert Clifford began heavily fortifying the castle, but he was killed at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 with his new stronghold barely completed.
