    Suffolk, other creations. His [Michael 1st Earl of Suffolk ] career as diplomat and official flourished (he was Lord C hancellor in the mid-1380's) but his being a favourite of R ichard II made him unpopular with the more established nobi lity and he was tried "in absentia" for high treason and o n being found guilty forfeited his titles. Shortly befor e Richard II's own fall the son, another Michael, was resto red to his father's honours but this restoration was itsel f annulled on Henry IV's coming to the throne. Michael man aged to make his peace with the new King, however, and ha d the Earldom restored to him a second time. [Burke's Peera ge, p. 2761]

But the Parliament of 1399 having annulled th e proceedings of 21 Richard II and confirmed those of 11 Ri chard II aforesaid, he fell again under his father's attain der, whereby all his honours were (again) forfeited. Howeve r, he obtained restoration of most of his father's estate s and, in consideration of his services after the king's ad vent, was restored, 15 November 1399, as EARL OF SUFFOLK (n o mention again being made of the alleged Barony of de la P ole), with a remainder similar to that of 1398 aforesaid.
