    ----------------------------------
    James de Alditheley was a great favourite of Richard, Earl of Cornwall, at whose coronation as king of Almaigne he assisted. This nobleman had livery of his lands in the 31st Henry III [1247], and was constituted in two years afterwards constable of Newcastle-under-Lyne. Being one of the lords-marchers he was actively employed for some years against the Welsh and was appointed governor of the castles of Salop and Bridgenorth and sheriff of the counties of Salop and Stafford. In the 47th of Henry III [1263] he was made justice of Ireland; and in the same year, upon the misunderstanding between the king and the barons regarding the provisions of Oxford, being referred to arbitration of the monarch of France, he was one of the noblemen who undertook for the king therein. The next year we find him with Roger de Mortimer and the other barons-marchers giving battle to Llewelyn, Prince of Wales, and afterwards joining the Earl of Gloucester at Evesham in rescuing the king, who had become captive to the Earl of Leicester at the battle of Lewes. In the 52nd of Henry III [1268], his lordship performed a pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in Galicia, and the following year embarked in the Crusade. His death, occasioned by breaking his neck, occurred soon afterwards (1271). He had a dau. Joan, who m. John, son of Robert de Beauchamp, to whose child, prior to its birth, the said John then being deceased, his lordship was appointed guardian. He had also five sons, the youngest of whom, Hugh, is supposed to have been the Hugh Alditheley who had summons to parliament 15 May 1321, and whose son became Earl of Gloucester. His lordship was s. by his eldest son, James de Alditheley, who d. s. p. in 1272, and was s. by his brother, Henry, who d. without issue in 1275, and was s. by his brother, William, who d. without issue is 1275, was s. by his brother, Nicholas, who died in 1299.
