In Parliament at Westminister, on 29 September 1278, he was a witness to the homage of Alexander, King of Scotland. [This is an indication of the high esteem he was held in the eyes of King Edward I] During his lifetime, Sir Richard held many positions of trust including that of steward to the king to which he was appointed on 30 May 1285.1 Richard departed this life between 27 February 1291 and 1292 in England.
