He was with Sayer de Quincy, Earl of Winchester, and others, at the siege of Damietta, in Palestine, A.D. 1218; and, next, year, was Governor of Tamworth-castle. This William, by appointment of King John, married Alice, eldest of the two daughters of Thomas Noel, by his wife, Margaret, eldest of the three daughters of Guy le Strange, of Knockin, and coheirs of their brother Ralphe; and the said Thomas Noel was elder brother of Philip Noel, direct ancestor of the late Earls of Gainsborough. With the said Alice, William de Harcourt had the Lordships of Ellenhall, Seighford, Bridgeford, Podmore, with a moiety of Cutculme, in Staffordshire, together with Granborough, in Warwickshire.
