Lordship Title of Basildon (Beche) ID14192

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
The Earl of Warwick's overlordship in the second moieties of BASILDON and Ashampstead passed, as in the former case, from his successors to the Crown. It was in dispute in 1279, when it was decided that it belonged to the king, and not to William Beauchamp nor to Christiana de Marisco, who held the lordship of the other moieties, but at a later date the Earls of Warwick made good their claim. After the death of Thomas Beauchamp in 1401 a knight's fee in Ashampstead and Basildon was part of the dower of his widow, passing to Richard their son and heir and to his successors. It was held of the earldom as late as 1625.
