Vaughan’s one appearance in Parliament in this period left no trace upon the records. He was classified by the bishop of his diocese as indifferent in religion in 1564, but retained his place on the commission of the peace until at least 1575. He was one of 11 Radnorshire gentry assessed at ‘one light horseman furnished’ at the musters of 1570. The date of his death has not been ascertained.
