In October 1294 he took part in the abortive expedition to Gascony in the company of Roger de Mohaut (de Monte Alto) under the Earl of Richmond, and served there again in the campaigns of 1295 and 1296. In 1297 he was summoned to a military council at Rochester on 8 September, and in November he went North in the company of Ralph de Monthermer, Earl of Gloucester and Hertford, to drive back the Scots, who had devastated the border counties after Wallace's victory at Stirling. He was summoned to Parliament from 29 December 1299 to 3 November 1306, by writs directed Willelmo de Morle, whereby he is held to have become LORD MORLEY.

He married, 2ndly, before October 1295, Cicely, whose parentage is not known. He died probably before the end of 1302, and was buried in Roydon church. His widow Cicely was living in 1316.
