"He succeeded to the Butlership of Ireland, but notwithstanding his nonage, being under age at his father's death, had license 3 Dec 1325 for the fine of 2,000 marks to marry whom he pleased, and was created Earl of Ormond (the north part of the County of Tipperary) by patent bearing date of 2 Nov 1328 at Salisbury, the King then holding Parliament there. By patent, dated at Wallingford, in consideration for his services, and better to enable him to support the honour, had given to him the regalities, liberties, knight's fees and other royal privileges of the County of Tipperary, and the rights of a Palatine in that county for life. By virtue of this grant these privileges were enjoyed by the family until 1716. He is described by Clynn, the Annalist, to be a liberal, amicable facetious and comely person. He died in the flower of his youth. He married Eleanor, 2nd daugh. of Humphrey de Bohun (great-great grandson of Henry de Bohun) and his wife,Princess Elizabeth, daugh. of King Edward I (Longshanks). James & Eleanor had children viz. John, who died an infant, James and a daughter named Petronilla who married Gilbert, 3rd Baron Taubot ( generation 10 in the Talbot line)." [S1922]
