"third baron by tenure, eldest son, who was of age in 1194-5, and nextyear, or 6 Richard I., when a scutage was levied for the King'sransom, he was one of the sureties for its payment. He was earlyembittered against King John by being compelled by him to surrenderthe barony of Frontboeuf, which Henry I, had conferred upon hisgreat-garndfather, Sir Nigel d'Albini, to a descendant of the originalowner. This was probably because Mowbray, upon the accession of kingJohn, was tardy in pledging his allegiance, and at length only sworefealty upon concition that "the king should render to every man hisright". At tha breaking out of the baronial war he was governor ofYork Castle, and it is not suprising that he once sided with thebarons against King John, and was one of the most forward of them.
