      (unsubstantiated)

      English nobleman and soldier, a younger son of Robert de Burghersh, 1st Baron Burghersh and Maud de Badlesmere, sister of Bartholomew de Badlesmere, 1st Baron Badlesmere. He was born some time between 1287 and 1296. He married Elizabeth de Verdun, daughter and coheir of Theobald de Verdun, 2nd Baron Verdon. He served in the Scottish wars, and assisted his uncle Bartholomew de Badlesmere, 1st Baron Badlesmere, who was Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports in 1320. Uncle and nephew both joined the rebellious Earl of Lancaster at the Battle of Boroughbridge, 1321/2, but were captured after the defeat there. Badlesmere was hanged, but Burghersh was pardoned by Queen Isabella. He was himself made Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports and Constable of Dover Castle in 1327, holding the office until 1330. In 1329, he was created Baron Burghersh by writ of summons. From 1335 until 1343, he was one of the Justices in Eyre, responsible for enforcing forest law.
      In 1340, he inherited some of the lands of his brother, Bishop Henry Burghersh. He was made a Knight Banneret in 1341, and was sent as part of an embassy to the Pope in August 1343. He would later become Lord Chamberlain of the Household, Admiral of the West, and Seneschal and Custos of Ponthieu and Montreuil. He fought at the Battle of Crécy in the King's division, and was present at the Siege of Calais. He was again appointed Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports in 1348, and was made Constable of the Tower of London on June 27, 1355. He fell ill while at Dover Castle and died there on August 3, 1355.
