Noted events in his life were:
• Magna Carta, 1297. 750,1145 John inherited the turbulent spirit of his father and joined the Earl of Hertford and other in 1297. This group opposed the collection of the subsidies granted by the parliament then held at St. Edmondsbury to the crown but the ferment was allayed by the king's confirming Magna Carta and the charter of the Forests. This confirmation declared that in the future no tax should be imposed upon the subject without the consent of parliament at the same time granting a pardon to the discontented lords and their adherents in which pardon John is especially named.
