Text From Source: Hugh de Loges was in arms against King John, during the turbulent times towards the end of his reign : for which offence, the forestership of Cannock was seized into the king's hands : but by a precept dated 17 John, it was appointed, that in case he found good pledges for the sure custody of that forest, it should be restored. After his death, Hugh his son and heir held the office in serjeanty, as his ancestors had done, and received a command from King Henry III., to permit William Fitzwalkelin, to enter his hart-hounds for hunting the stag, in his bailywick whence it would appear, that at that time, red deer inhabited this forest.
