The Kings and Their Hawks

This chapter elaborates on English royal falconry from the period of Richard I to Henry III. Richard was a dedicated falconer. He spent over nine years of his reign outside England, there was less royal falconry activity in England during his reign than in that of Henry II, and recorded instances of Richard's hawking activity all take place abroad. Several of the falconers of Richard's reign who appear most frequently in the records were men who served Henry II. Ralph and Walter de Hauville appear again, joined by Ralph de Erlham, another member of the Hauville family. The most striking thing about John's falconry establishment is the comparatively large number of people employed in it. Members of the Fitz Bernard family, acting as marshals of the king's hawks, generally vouched for wages of hawkers, though sometimes individual hawkers were paid separately.
