John de Vaux, knight (fl.1213-55)

Biography
son of William de Vaux, lord of Dirleton. John was a hostage for King William in 1213 (CDS, i, no. 574). He witnessed some charters while his father was still alive. In 1219, he is mentioned as sheriff of Edinburgh. His wife's name was Ada (Dryb. Lib., no. 33). He is presumably the John de Vaux, seneschal to the queen of Scotland in 1236-7. http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/scottishstudies/charters/de%20Vaux%20family.pdf
