Political History of England 1216-1377, Vol III, T F Tout, AMS Press, 1905, p435: "...William of Wykeham, who had been the guardian of the Earl of March during his long minority, was the most experiencedand wary of the clerical opposition to the lawyers and courtiers of the Lancaster faction. He had an eager and enthusiastic backer in the young and high born Bishop of London, William Courtenay, the son of the Earl of Devon, and through his mother, Margaret Bohun, a great-grandson of Edward I. Office and descent combined to make Bishop Courtenay the custodian of the constitutional tradition, which was equally strong among the great baronial houses of ancient descent and such highlyplaced ecclesiastics as were zealous for the nation as well as for their order..."
