    He went to Almain in 1257 with Richard, Earl of Cornwall, King elect of the Romans. In 1263, he joined with Simon de Montfort and Prince Edward and fought in the Battle of Lewes on 14 May. Upon losing the battle, he and the Kings's brothers fled to pevensey. In 1265, he fought in the Battle of Evesham under Prince Edward. The next year he commanded the royalist forces at Chesterfield. He received pardon for his actions in 1267, and the next year on 24 June he took up the cross. It appears however that he never went on Crusade. Two years later, in 1269, he violently quarreled with Sir Alan la Zouche in Westminster Hall, the result being that Sir Alan died of his wounds. Sir Alan's son barely escaped with his life. Earl John fled to Reigate being perused by Prince Edward. He begged for mercy, and on 4 August 1270, was pardoned, having agreed to pay a large sum to the King. Four days after the King's death, Sir John swore allegiance to Prince Edward. As Prince Edward was at that time returning home from Crusade, Earl John was appointed one of the Guardians of the Realm. In 1277 and 1294, he was summoned to serve against the Welsh, and was summoned to serve against the Scots in 1291, 1297, and 1300.

Later he commanded the rear guard at the Battle of Falkirk on 22 July 1298. He commanded the second division at the siege of Caerlaverock Castle in 1300.
