He received the shreivalty of Shropshire from King Henry I. While his parentage is more or less obscure, there is evidence to show that Flaald, his father, lived in Brittany and was a brother of Alain, seneschal of Dol, descended from the old Armonican counts of Dol and Dinan. Alain Fitz Flaald was also the father or grandfather of William Fitzalan, steward to David I, King of Scotland, ancestor of the Stuarts, kings of that country. Alain Fitz Flaald was also the father of William Fitzalan, to whom Henry II gave in second marriage Isabel De Say, baroness of Clun, the greatest heiress of Shropshire.

Notes: in the 34th year of Edward I, was made a Knight of the Bath with Prince Edward. From that time to the 4th year of the ensuing reign, he was constantly engaged in the wars of Scotland; but he was afterwards involved in the treason of Thomas, E. Lancaster, yet not greatly to his prejudice, for, in the 10th year of Edward II, he was constituted captain-general to the King, from the Trent northwards, as far as Roxborough in Scotland, and for several years subsequently, he continued as one of the commanders of the English army in Scotland, in which service he so distinguished himself, that he obtained a grant from the crown of the confiscated property of Lord Badlesmere, in the city of London and county of Salop, as well as the escheated lands of John Mowbray, Lord Mowbray, in the Isle of Axholme, and several manors and castles, part of the possessions (also forfeited) of Roger Mortimer, Lord Mortimer, of Wigmore. But these royal grants led, eventually to the earl's ruin; for, after the fall of the unhappy Edward into the hands of his enemies, Lord Arundel, who was implacably hated by the Queen and Mortimer, suffered death by decapitation at Hereford.

Richard FITZALAN (6º E. Arundel)

Born: 1346

Died: 21 Sep 1397, London, Middlesex, England

Notes: Knight of the Garter. Earl of Surrey; Admiral of the East and South. In the 1st year of Richard II, he being constituted admiral of the king's fleet in the westwards, and soon after that to the southwards, was retained by indenture to serve the King at sea for one quarter of a year, in the company of John, Duke of Lancaster. He was afterwards engaged for some years in Scotland; and was in the commission (9th year of Edward II), for the trial of Michael De la Pole, and some others of the king's favorites, whom the Commons had then impeached. He was appointed the next year admiral of the whole fleet, and putting to sea encountered and vanquished the united fleets of France and Spain, taking no less than 100 ships, great and small, all laden with wines, comprising 19,000 tons. This gallant exploit he followed up by entering the port of Brest, and reducing one of the castles and burning the other. He now returned to England in great triumph, but had the encounter the jealousy and hatred of the king's favorites, particularly the Duke of Ireland, whose influence over the King he strenuously resisted. His lordship afterwards entered into the confederation of the Earls of Warwick and Derby, which assembled in arms at Haringhay Park (now Hornsey), in Middlesex, and compelled the King to acquiesce in their views. He was then, by the general consent of the parliament (11th year of Richard II), made Governor of the castle and town of Brest, and shortly after captain-general of the king's fleet at sea, with commission to treat of peace with John De Montfort, Duke of Brittany; whereupon hoisting his flag, soon after met with the enemy, of whose ships he sunk and took fourscore; entered the Isle of Rhe, which he burnt and spoiled, and several other ports which he likewise plundered, putting to flight all the French and Britons that made any resistance. From this memorable period in the life of Lord Arundel, little is known of him, until the 15th year of Richard, when the King regaining his power, summoned a parliament at Westminster, and dismissed several of the great officers of state, amongst whom his lordship was removed from his command as admiral; and in two years afterwards, the parliament then sitting, he was accused of treason by the Duke of Lancaster, but escaped for the moment, and sought to retire from public life. The King entertaining, however, the strongest feeling of personal enmity to all those who had previously opposed his minions, contrived to get the E. Arundel into his hands by stratagem, and having sent him prisoner to the Isle of Wight, brought him to immediate trial, when he was condemned to be hanged, drawn, and quartered as a traitor. The sentence was however somewhat mitigated, and the gallant nobleman was simply beheaded at Cheapside, in the city of London, in the 21st year of King Richard II., the King himself being a spectator, and Thomas De Mowbray, Earl Marshal (who had married his daughter), the executioner, who, bound up his eyes, and according to some, the person who actually struck off his head. It is stated that when the Earl saw his son-in-law, Mowbray, and the E. Kent, his nephew, guarding him to the place of execution, he told them, it had been much more fit that they should have absented themselves; "For the time will come" he said, "when as many shall wonder at your misfortune as they now do at mine".

John FITZALAN (14º E. Arundel)

Born: ABT 1408

Died: ABT 1435

Notes: Knight of the Garter. Governor of Rouen and served in the French wars. Created Duke of Touraine in France by the Duke of Bedford, the Regent. In 1433 the crown admitted the claim of John Fitzalan, then Earl of Arundel, that the earldom "was and always had been vested in the castle of Arundel". The claim was false, but that's neither here nor there, since the crown accepted it. Under that reckoning, Roger De Montgomery, who was created an Earl in 1067 and given lands, including Arundel Castle, was first Earl of Arundel, although he was never known by that title. His younger son was attainted and the title was then given to William d'Aubigny, who married Henry II's widow, who brought the Castle to him as part of her dowry. The fifth d'Aubigny Earl had no children and Arundel Castle passed to his nephew John Fitzalan in 1243. These first d'Aubigny holders of Arundel Castle were either known by othere titles or as "Earls at Arundel". Then his grandson, Richard Fitzalan, was specifically created Earl of Arundel in about 1289. So Richard Fitzalan was either the first Earl of Arundel or the eighth in the d'Aubigny line depending on how you want to count it.
