Another name for John was John DE ST. PHILIBERT.
Sir JOHN DE SAINT PHILIBERT, son and heir, was born and baptised at Sulham, Berks. His wardship was granted to Queen Margaret. He proved his age, and had order for seisin, January 1314; and was, some time, of the King's retinue. In 1318 he went on a pilgrimage to St. Iago; he was on service overseas, under the Earl of Norfolk, in 1320, and in Gascony, 1324 and 1325; and in 1322 was with the Earl in Scotland. He was among those summoned, by proclamation, to attend the Great Council at Westminster, 1324; Knight of the Shire for Berks, 1327; on a commission of the peace, Suffolk and Norfolk, 1331. In 1331 and 1332 he was in Gascony, as mayor of Bordeaux.
He married Ada. He died before 12 February 1332/3, seised of lands in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Gloocester and Berkshire. His widow died about Whitsuntide 1349 in the time of the pestilence. [Complete Peerage XI:366, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
A word about the name "St. Philbert". I find numerous references to the name "St. Philibert" and "St. Philbert". As far as I can determine they are two different spellings for the same family. I find the same people spelled with either spelling. Even the original saint (died 684) that the family is presumed to be named after, I find spelled both ways. 899
John married Ada DE BOTETOURTE, daughter of Sir John DE BOTETOURTE 1st Baron Botetourte and Maud (Matilda) FITZ THOMAS Heiress of Mendlesham 899. (Ada DE BOTETOURTE was born about 1295 in St Briavel Castle, Gloucestershire, England and died about May 1349 in (of plague) 10576.)
