BEGINNING OF HIS CAREER/SERVICE UNDER HIS
UNCLE KING EDWARD I

Grandson of King Henry III, nephew of King Edward I, who
probably arranged for him the splendid marriage with Alice de
Lacy , daughter of Henry de Lacy, 3rd Earl of Lincoln

Earldoms of Lincoln and Salisbury, added to the Earldoms
he inherited from his father, Edmund Crouchback  namely Lancaster, Leicester and Derby, which made him one of the richest
nobles in the land] ,
