        Name: *John LE STRANGE
        Sex: M
        Birth: 25 JAN 1306 in Black Mere, Shropshire, England 1
        Death: 20 JUL 1349 in Black Mere, Shropshire, England 2
        Occupation: BET 1324 AND 1349 2nd Baron le Strange 3
        Whitchurch, Shropshire, England

        The Sheriff of Salop was directed, on June 2, 1325, to receive from John, son of Fulk le Strange, tenant-in-chief, security for the payment of 600 marks yearly to the King until he come of age. On August 1 following, by reason of the above security, the wardship of the lands of his late father, in the King's hands by his minority, was committed to John, to hold from midsummer last until his lawful age, except knight's fees and advowsons of churches, and dowers when they fall in, rendering œ400 a year at the Exchequer, in moieties at Michaelmas and Easter. Licence was granted for the same John to marry whomsoever he will, for a fine of œ400 made by him at the Exchequer.
        John, in later times, reckoned to be the second Lord Strange of Blackmere, came of age on January 25, 1327, the same day as that on which Edward III acceded to the throne. A month later, namely, on February 26, the escheator was ordered to cause him to have seisin of his father's lands, as he had made proof of age and the King had received his homage; he held by service of 1 1/4 knight's fee and a yearly payment of œ8.
        He had already had early training at Court as 'valettus regis,' or King's yeoman, of Edward II, apparently during the last years of his reign--perhaps when his father was seneschal of Aquitaine, and after the latter's death; we shall see that he soon became 'King's valet' of Edward III. A mandate was issued on July 12, 1327, to the Treasurer of the Exchequer to allow to John le Strange, son and heir of Fulk, in debts due from him for the custody of his inheritance, and for his marriage, which were granted to him by the late King, the sum of œ90 for 134 oak trees of the best [de electo], felled by the late King in John's wood of Chawton during his minority and carried to Porchester Castle.
        John le Strange of Blackmere was summoned to Parliament from September 6, 1330, to April 20, 1343, by writs directed to him simply 'Johanni Le Strange,' and up to March 10, 1349, by writs directed 'Johanni Le Strange de Blackmere.
        In the year 1332 he was twice appointed, namely, on March 21 and on November 9, one of six keepers of the county of Salop, to put a stop to the lawlessness then prevailing.
        On March 21, 1333, he was summoned 'equis et armis' to Newcastle-on-Tyne to repel the invasion of the Scots.
        Among the petitions to Pope Clement VI is one from John le Strange, baron, and several others and their wives, for plenary remission at the hour of death; it was granted at Avignon on November 13, 1348. He died within a few months of receiving this, namely, on July 20, 1349.
