decision went in Morgan's favour,170 but the Marshal held on to Caerleon and the war was renewed. On 2 January 1234 the king offered Morgan the choice of either Badgeworth (Glos.) or Inkberrow (Worcs.), Marshal manors in his hands, until Morgan recovered Caerleon.171 The mutual restorations made in the following summer did not include a surrender of Caerleon to Morgan, who by August was making serious trouble, claiming, as Henry III complained to Llywelyn, that he held his lands by the prince's authority. Once again Llywelyn intervened, deciding fairly enough that Morgan held his lands in Gwynllwg of the earl of Gloucester and ordering him to restore any of the earl's lands he had seized.172 The enmity between Morgan and the Marshals continued, but at his death in 1248 Morgan was still 'of Caerleon' only in name. That Richard Marshal and his followers were able to resist the king successfully was due to their having a secure Welsh base and to the considerable support of the tenants of Netherwent and Glamorgan, reinforced by the power of Llywelyn. A striking feature of the Marshal's party in England is that it lacked weight at the top. Richard Marshal was the only earl to commit himself to rebellion; few of his followers could claim baronial rank, and few were important tenants in chief. The Marshal had shown no particular sympathy for Hubert de Burgh at the time of his disgrace. The rescue of Hubert from Devizes was excellent propaganda, identifying the Marshal's cause with that of the principal sufferer at the hands of the 'Poitevins', but former associates and officers of Hubert did not rally to the Marshal; the sole exception was Hugh Kinnersley. The Dunstable annalist asserted that when Richard Marshal retired to Wales the earls and the barons of England promised him their counsel and favour.173 In fact, he met with active opposition from some of them. John de Lacy, earl of Lincoln, commanded royal forces during the war.174 William de Warenne, earl of Surrey, and Roger de Quency, heir to Winchester, were recorded as being on the king's service.175 William Lungespee, heir to Salisbury, was present at Grosmont, as was Roger Bigod, earl of Norfolk, proving his new-found loyalty.176 Warwick was clearly hostile to Richard Siward,177 and Richard of 170 Close R., 1231-34, pp. 322, 323; C.P.R., 1232-47, p. 26; Curia Regis Rolls, XV, 102. 171 C.P.R., 1232-47, p. 36. 172 Close R., 1231-34, pp. 590-91, 594-96. 173 Ann.
