He was appointed in1394 on a Commission of Enquiry and in 1401 was a Commissioner of Peacein Derbyshire.

After that battle (21 July) he was appointed, 23 July 1403, with 4 others, to govern the marches towards Wales and resist Glendower; and was also Keeper of Llandovery Castle, 8 September 1403. He was summoned to Parliament on 20 October 1403, by writ directed Johanni Tochet, and from 25 August 1404 to 26 August 1407, by writs directed Johanni Tuchet, whereby he is held to have become Lord Tuchet or Tochet. However, he was never so called but was frequently styled Lord Audley in official documents. He was joint Keeper (with the Earl of Warwick) of Brecknock Castle, 24 October 1403-19 February 1403/4, and sole Keeper thereof, 14 October 1404.

~ Cokayne's Complete Peerage, 2nd Edition, Vol. XIIB, (Tuchet),pp. 60-61

John Tuchet, great nephew and coheir, being son and heir of John Tuchet, who was son and heir of Sir John Tuchet of Markeaton, co. Derby, (slainat Rochelle, 1371), by Joan, sister of the whole blood of Nicholas, 3rd Lord Audley. He was born 23 April 1371, and was 20 years old at the death of his said great uncle, in 1391, to whom he was found one of his next heirs. He was in the Welsh wars against Glendower, and was summoned to Parliament as a Baron (Lord Audley) 20 Oct 1403 to 26 Aug 1407, the writs being probably terminated in his favor; the writ was, however, directed (merely) Johanni Tuchet. According to modern doctrine, which was not then invented, the issue of a writ would probably be regarded as terminating the abeyance (then unknown) in the Barony ofAudley. He married, Isabel, who was living June 1405. He died in December 1408, aged about 38.

Dear Allen ~

In answer to your question, the wife of John Tuchet, Knt., 4th Lord Audley, was Elizabeth Stafford, a hitherto unidentified daughter of Humphrey Stafford, Knt., of Amblecote, Bramshall, and Perton, co. Stafford, by his lst wife, Alice, daughter and heiress of John Grenville, Knt. Elizabeth Stafford has Carolingian ancestry through her paternal grandmother, Margaret (Stafford) Stafford, who was a daughter of Ralph Stafford, lst Earl of Stafford, by his lst wife, Katherine Hastang.

Complete Peerage sub Audley states that John Tuchet's wife's given was Isabel, but the records I have found of this woman all call her Elizabeth. This includes her assignment of dower and her inquisition post mortem. Exactly why the editor picked the name Isabel is a complete mystery to me.

Below please find a record of John Tuchet, Knt., and his wife, Elizabeth Stafford, which is taken from my book, Plantagenet Ancestry, 3rd edition.

Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
