He signed, 12 February, 1301, 29th Edward I, the celebrated letter sent by the barons, assembled in parliament at Lincoln, to Pope Boniface VIII, denying his jurisdiction in temporal affairs, and denying that Scotland was a fief of the Roman see.

On his decease, his son John, and his grandson Edmund, being dead, and the great-granddau. Isabel being also dead, without issue, William, 9th Lord d'Eyncourt, s. his grandfather, when twenty-six years of age, as heir by descent as well as by virtue of the licensed entail.
