  During a truce between King Stephen and William's father at the siege of Newbury Castle in 1152 William was given as hostage. William's father immediately broke the truce by sending in reinforcements. "Stephen's entourage urged him to hang William at once, but the king was unwilling to execute the child without giving his father a chance to surrender Newbury. But John Marshall, having four sons and a fruitful wife, considered the youngest of his sons of far less value than a strong castle. He cheerfully told the king's messenger that he cared little if William were hanged, for he had anvils and hammers with which to forge still better sons. When he received this brutal reply, Stephen ordered his men to lead William to a convenient tree. Fearing that John planned a rescue, the king himself escorted the executioners with a strong force.
  William, who was only five or six years old, had no idea what this solemn parade portended. When he saw William, Earl of Arundel twirling a most enticing javelin, he asked him for the weapon. This reminder of William's youth and innocence was too much for King Stephen's resolution, and taking the boy in his arms, he carried him back to camp. A little later some of the royalist had the ingenious idea of throwing William over the walls from a siege engine, but Stephen vetoed that scheme as well. He had decided to spare his young prisoner. from "William Marshal" by S. Painter (Baltimore, 1933)
  On the occasion of the Coronation of Henry III: "By God's sword," said William Marshall, "this advice is true and good; it goes straight to my heart, that if everyone else abandoned the king, do you know what I would do? I would carry him on my shoulders, step by step, from island to island, from country to country, and I would not fail him, not even if it meant begging for my bread." the Barnwell Annalist.
  When the King(Henry III), who loved William devotedly, heard the news of his death and saw his dead body coverd with a cloth, he heaved a deep sigh and said: "Alas, woe is me, is the blood of blessed Thomas the martyr(Becket) not even yet avenged". Mathew Paris
