Ralph Basset held the manor of Olney and granted it with others to William Herle, knight, and Thomas Radeclyve, parson of Olney. By a fine of 1339 [CP 25(1) 287/40, no. 255] between Ralph Basset of Drayton Bassett, Ralph son of Ralph, son of the first Ralph, and Joan his wife, daughter of Thomas de Bello Campo, earl of Warwick, and Simon Pakeman as guardian of the young Ralph, on the one side, and William Herle and Thomas de Radeclyve on the other, the manors of Walsall in Staffordshire, Olney in Buckinghamshire and Long Buckby in Northamptonshire were settled on Ralph Basset of Drayton Bassett for life, with successive remainders to Ralph his grandson and Joan daughter of the earl of Warwick, wife of Ralph, and the heirs of their bodies, the heirs male of Ralph Basset the grandfather, Ralph Stafford for life, Richard de Stafford for life, Ralph son of Ralph Stafford and his heirs male, Richard son of Richard de Stafford and his heirs male, Thomas de Bello Campo, son of the earl of Warwick, and his heirs male, and the heirs of the earl. Accordingly Ralph Basset of Drayton Bassett held Olney for life and so died. Ralph his son died in the lifetime of his father. Then, therefore, Ralph the grandson and Joan daughter of Thomas de Bello Campo held it. Meanwhile Ralph de Stafford and Richard de Stafford and both their sons died without heirs. Joan also died without heirs male of her body. Then Ralph the grandson married Joan, the subject of this inquisition. He died without heirs of his body and the manor was accordingly taken into the king’s hands. In the chancery of Richard II it was assigned to Joan in dower, the other lands descending to Thomas son of Thomas de Bello Campo in accordance with the fine. Henry Grey of Wilton took possession of one quarter of Olney, title unknown. Owing to the minority of his son Richard two parts of the quarter are in the king’s hands. Joan having died, the third part descends to Thomas son of Thomas de Bello Campo under the fine. He was 21 years of age on 25 Jan. The manor is held of the king in chief by knight service, annual value of three quarters £45, of a third part of a quarter £4 10s.4d. [sic].
