As third son of Richard Fitz-Alan (alt. Arundel), IX Earl of Aunndel, and Eleanor de Lancaster, and given his older brother was born in 1346,the date given seems plausable. It is further supported by his appointment to the Bishopric of Ely in 1374, which, if born in 1353 would make him just of age; the beginning of his 22nd year. Mawla
