Sir Robert de Lathom, son of Richard de Lathom, was sheriff of Lancashire in 1236, and again 1249, and seven years further, and married Amicia, sister and coheiress of Thomas de Alfreton, and by her had two sons, Thomas de Lathom of Mosborough, and Sir Robert, son and heir.

Sir Robert de Lathom, heir to his older brother, Richard, succeeded Richard sometime before 1230, which can be fixed at a probable date of his charter of confirmation to Stanlaw Abbey of lands once belonging to his grandfather Robert Fitz Henry [Coucher Book of Whalley, pp. 550, 551]. In 1250, he had a grant of the custody of the Honor and Castle of Lancaster, an office of dignity almost commensurate with that of an Earl Palatine, and had grant again of the custody of this Honor in 1254. He occurs as Sheriff of Lancashire in 1236, from 1248 to 1256 and again in 1263, in Military Summonses against Llewellyn, 1277 and again in 1282, twice and in Summons to Earl of Cormwall's Military Council at Gloucester in 1287.
Sir Robert's wife was Amicia, daughter and coheir of Robert de Alfreton. Their son and heir was Sir Robert de Lathom.
~Parentalia, Genealogical Memoirs, p. 66-67
Robert married Amicia de Alfreton, daughter of Robert de Alfreton of Alfreton and Norton and Agnes, before 16 Jul 1252. (Amicia de Alfreton was born about 1208.)
