  1. 2.  John Barton, of Kingston on HullJohn Barton, of Kingston on Hull Descendancy chart to this point (1.Robert1) died Unknown.

    Notes:

    John Barton, the elder son, appears to have been in the confidence of King Edward III (1327-1377).  He was a Burgess of Kingston on Hull River in County York, and in 1334 he was a Collector of Customs there.  He also held various Commissions for defense of the kingdom, between that period and 1338.

    During the latter year, he received several commands to provide large supplies of wheat, malt, oats, and wine, and to send them to the Castles of Stirling and Edinburgh; and also to the camp before Dunbar, which latter place was then under siege by the English army.  But as at the end of the year, an inconsiderable portion, only, of the supplies had been collected, to the detriment of the King's service, as it was asserted, he and John de Percebrig, who was associated with him in the Commission, were superceded by Warren de Eglesmerthe and William de Rokeby.

    On reference to the reprimand conveyed by King Edward III in 1334 to others who are alleged not to have fulfilled their duty in providing men for the array in the County of Lancaster, "Negligentia" is the term employed: "Rex arguit negligentiae."  But in the case of John de Percebrig and John de Barton, in the County of York "Tepidas" is the phrase.  "Warinus de Eglesmerthe, and Willielmus de Rokeby assignantur loco Johannis de Percebrig, et Johannis de Barton qui propter tepidatem, a munere dimittuntur."

    Tepidas may imply disaffection.  Whether there was any ground for such imputation, or suspicion, or whether, which is not improbable, the dismissal of John de Barton arose from jealosy among the Council, on account of the King's favour towards him, is not apparent.  But it is to be remarked that the Warrant of dismissal, is by the Council, the King being in the Netherlands, preparatory to his invasion of France, and is dated Byflet, 20th December 1338.
