    Notes: 3rd son of Richard, 1° Lord Scrope, was charged with imprisoning the Earl of Warwick on the Isle of Man. In 1401 he accompanied Thomas of Lancaster, the King's son, to Ireland as his deputy. It is said that his wife, having heard the complaints made about him whilst he was Justice of Munster, Leinster and Uriell, his maladministration of justice, 'except that he would make a solemn oath on The Bible, that willingly he would wrong no 'Christian creature' in that land, that truly and duly, see payment made for all expenses. She finally did consent to go with him. Thomas of Lancaster gives him a glowing reference in a letter written from Drogheda on 18 th Feb 1401. Scrope himself wrote at about the same time, asking for the monies owed to him, if not for 'A Grant of The Isle of Man, forfeited by my brother'. He died in Ireland in 1408. Millicent, his widow, married Sir John Fastolph (Falstaff in Shakespeare). Millicent's son Stephen became Fastolph's ward. Fastolph enjoyed Stephen's inheritance for 51 years before he finally died.
