Note: Sir William Fitz-William was summoned* to parliament in the 1st Edward III , as a baron but never afterwards. This nobleman m. Maud, dau. of Edmund, Lord Deincourt, and had several children, but as none were subsequently esteemed barons, we presume, with Nicholas, that the summons was not a parliamentary but a military one. From this Sir William the present noble house of Fitz-William, Earls Fitz-William, lineally derive.
* So says Dugdale, "but it appears from his list of summonses in that year that Sir William Fitz-William was not included in either of the summonses to parliament, but only in the summons dated at Ramsay, 5 April, 1324, to attend at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, with horse and arms. "Nicholas." [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, England, 1883, p. 216, Fitz-William, Baron Fitz-William]
