[Burke's Peerage]

      Edmund Fitz-Alan, 8th Earl of Arundel. We find this nobleman, from the34th Edward I [1306], to the 4th of the ensuing reign [1311], constantlyengaged in the wars of Scotland; but he was afterwards involved in thetreason of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, yet not greatly to his prejudice,for, in the 10th Edward II [1317], his lordship was constitutedlieutenant and captain-general to the king, from the Trent northwards, asfar as Roxborough, in Scotland, and for several years subsequently, hecontinued one of the commanders of the English army in Scotland, in whichservice he so distinguished himself, that he obtained a grant from thecrown of the confiscated property of Lord Badlesmere, in the city ofLondon and county of Salop, as well as the escheated lands of John, LordMowbray, in the Isle of Axholme, and several manors and castles, part ofthe possessions (also forfeited) of Roger, Lord Mortimer, of Wigmore. Butthose royal grants led, eventually, to the earl's ruin, for, after thefall of the unhappy Edward into the hands of his enemies, Lord Arundel,who was implacably hated by the queen and Mortimer, suffered death bydecapitation at Hereford, in 1326. His lordship m. 1305, the Lady AlicePlantagenet, sister and sole heir of John, last Earl of Warren and Surreyof that family, by whom he had issue, Richard, his successor; Edmund(Sir), m.
