Pencester was Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports for 32 years, his tenure finishing in 1299 when the Baron de Burghersh was elected; it is reasonable to assume he began his administration in 1267.
When Pencester died in 1303, Margerie then married to Robert de Orreby. After her death, an inquest found that she had inherited the parish of Tunstall and this parish passed to her daughters (of Pencester): Joane, the wife of Henry de Cobham, of Rundale, and Alice, of John de Columbers.
An effigy of Pencester is on display in Penshurst village's St John the Baptist church, in the Sidney family chapel, and the Pencester-owned Penshurst Place estate before the Baron's Hall was built by the new owner of the estate Sir John de Pulteney in 1341.
