John Mowbray succeeded his father as Lord Mowbray when the latter was hanged in 1322.

John was still a minor when his father was hanged in 1322 - he and his mother were imprisoned in the Tower of London for five years. In January 1327, on the deposition of Edward II and accession of King Edward III, he was released and given livery of his father's lands except the isle of Axholme. He was summoned to parliament from 10 Dec 1327.

He was Governor of Berwick-on-Tweed and served in the Scots and French wars. He was one of the commanders of the English Army at the Battle of Neville's Cross on 17 Oct 1346. He was continually employed in Scotland and on the Border till his death.

Note that Henry Plantagenet, Earl of Lancaster, for services to Queen Isabella (wife of Edward II), was granted rights over the marriage of John. He married him to his fifth daughter Joan.

John Mowbray married secondly Elizabeth de Vere daughter of John de Vere Earl of Oxford and Maud Badlesmere.
