From Wikipedia

Baron Beauchamp of Bletso was a title in the Peerage of England , created by writ when Roger de Beauchamp (died 1380 ), was summoned to Parliament as Baron Beauchamp of Bletso from 1363 to 1379.

His son, another Roger Beauchamp (died 1373/74) was not summoned to parliament. He married, secondly, Joan Clopton, daughter of Sir Walter Clopton. He was the father of Sir Roger Beauchamp (baptised 14 August 1362 at Bletso, died on 13 May 1406), who owned manors in Bletsoe, Bedfordshire, Spelsbury, Oxfordshire and Lydiard Tregoz, Wiltshire, and was knighted before 18 February 1393. He was Member of Parliament for Bedfordshire in 1399.

The son of Sir Roger Beauchamp (1362–1406) and his wife Mary was John Beauchamp, of Bletso, born before 1396, who died in April 1412. He married, firstly, in January 1405/06, Margaret Holand, daughter of Sir John Holand, and secondly, after 1406, Edith Stourton, daughter of Sir John Stourton.
