Notes for Sir Roger PULESTON
Richard, who with his brothers Thomas and Roger was imprisoned in the Tower of London for supporting Simon de Montfort's rebellion. Richard took possession of Emral from Emma de Audley not later than 1277 and surrendered it to King Edward I in 1279: "Carta Ric'i de Pyvelsdon p'quam reddidit Regi Edwardo omnes terras et tenementa que de ipso Rege tenuit in Worthingbury in p'tibus de Mayelor Seysenik, dat. an. regni ipsius Regis VII et virotul in rubro libro scaccarii".

Richard and his brother Roger were at Rhuddlan Castle on 20 March 1284 (12 Edward I). Richard was appointed Sheriff of Caernarfon at a salary of £40 a year:
"Rex has literas suas palentes dat. apud Rotheland concessit officium vice-comitis Comitat. Caernarvon (quamdiu sibi placuerit) Magistro Rico de Pyvelisdon cum annuali feodo 40 librarum".
In October 1284, Richard arranged the Feast and Tournament held at Nefyn by King Edward I to celebrate the conquest of North Wales - the Treasurer's accounts record that Richard was paid £12 13s 4d for 40 quarters of wheat and 26s 8d for two ovens made by him at Nefyn.

In 1286, Richard received his annual salary of £40, plus £20 arrears.

In the Emral pedigree, Richard is stated to have been of Flotesbrook, Salop, 20 Edward I (1292).

Richard remained Sheriff of Caernarfonshire for 11 years until 1295, when he resigned (perhaps due to his brother Roger being lynched in Caernarfon by Welsh rebels in 1294). Richard had a son, Jordanus de Pyvelesdon.

Jordan. Between 1264 and 1266 it appears that Jordan took part in the Barons' War under Simon de Montfort and against the King.
Shortly after 1266, Flashbrook was sold by Richard de Flotesbroc to Jordan de Puleston. Some time between 1266 and 1275, he became lord of Flotesbroc. He stood surety for Richard de Flotesbroke, who brought a writ of novel disseisin against William, son of William de Rouel of Oldeton, respecting common of pasture in Northburi and Oldeton (Oulton), and who withdrew his plea at a hearing in the Spring of 1279.

On 28 June 1270, King Henry III granted Jordan de Pyvelesdon letters of protection for four years to accompany the King to the Holy Land on a crusade.
In January 1277, Jordan de Pyvlesdon sued Richard son of William de Albaston [Adbaston, which is about two miles N.E. of Flashbrook] for a messuage and three nokes of land in Albaston by open writ of right (per breve de recto patens), and stated that one Ouyel (Howell), his ancestor in the time of King John, was seised of it as of fee, and from Ouel the right descended to William his son and heir, and from William, who died without issue, to Henry his brother and heir, and from Henry, who took religious orders, to John his brother and heir, and from John, who died without issue, to one Agnes [no relationship named], and from Agnes to Richard her son and heir, and from Richard, who died without issue, to William his brother and heir, and from William, who died without issue, to Jordan his brother and heir, who now sues. Richard appeared and called to warranty Hamon de Albaston, who came and warranted the tenement to him, and denied the seisin of Ouyel the ancestor. A day was given to the parties at Trinity, when four Knights were to be summoned to elect the jury.

Between 1 August 1306 and 29 September 1306, Thomas de Flashbrook and Roger his brother brought an action to recover £300 due from Jordan de Flashbrook.
Jordan married Alice de Chetwynde (daughter of Adam de Chetwynde and Eva de Oswaldestre) and had 3 sons, Thomas, Richard and Roger. All three sons are mentioned in many late 13th/early 14th century Shropshire records.

Alice, born about 1230, who married Robert de Harley (born about 1223, son of Sir Nicholas de Harley and Isabella de Mytton), by whom she had a son, Sir Philip de Harley. A charter of 1255 confirms that Roger de Pyvelesdon grants to Robert de Harlegh in frank marriage with Alice his daughter half a mark annual rent which William de Dirwill paid for a tenement held under the grantor in the vill of Farlawe (or Farlow), co. Salop (Dugdale's Manuscripts, volume xxxix, folio 80).
