Robert Harbottle MP of Preston

  • Description

    Robert Harbottle obtained the constableship of Dunstanburgh castle, in about August 1399, from Henry of Bolingbroke. In October 1401, he was confirmed in the constableship of Dunstanburgh for life, at a peacetime salary of 50 marks p.a. (to be doubled during periods of war). In May 1400, Robert Harbottle, received a retrospective grant, dating from February 1399, of all the profits of the demesnes at Dunstanburgh, together with a special allowance for the cost of artillery and a personal gift of a pipe of wine every year. The additional expenditure on gunnery was necessitated by Henry IV’s plans for an expedition against Scotland, during the aftermath of which Robert Harbottle briefly served as one of the wardens of the east march.
