  General Notes:

RALPH DE TOENI VI, 1st son and heir, was born probably in 1189 or 1190. In 1204, with his father and brother or brothers, he was excluded by the King of France from the terms of the pacification in Normandy. King John ordered the manors of Saham and Ryhcot to be restored to him, 5 November 1213; and he was with the King at Partenay, in Poitou, 26 May 1214. Presumably he supported John in the civil war, for on 7 April 1216 the King granted him the lands which had been held by Richard de Montfichet in Essex, Bucks, Cambridge, Norfolk, Suffolk and Hunts; but soon afterwards he must have joined the rebellious barons, for John ordered the sheriff of co. Worcester, 16 July 1216, to give Robert de Mortimer seisin of the land of Abberley, held by Ralph, and on 5 September following he gave the manor of Flamstead to Waleran Tyes. By Henry III Ralph was granted the manor of Newport, Essex, during pleasure, 27 June 1218. Shortly before 20 September 1233 he was given the custody of Maud Castle (Painscastle, co. Radnor); and later in that year he and John de Monmouth were appointed generals of the Poitevin mercenaries in the Welsh marches against the Earl of Pembroke and Llewellyn. On 11 March 1233/4 he was ordered to keep the truce with Llewellyn until 25 July; with other nobles he was forbidden, 2 September 1234, to go to tournaments arranged at Northampton, Cambridge or elsewhere; and he was summoned, 7 March 1237/8, with other barons of the Welsh marches, to be at Oxford after Easter to confer with the King. In 1239 he took the Cross and set out for the Holy Land. He is said to have founded a monastery in the west of England. 4997
