About Elizabeth Basset

1st daughter and in her issue coheiress.


The infant Robert Lord COLEVILLE died (1369), at the age of six, when his estates devolved on his cousins and coheirs Ralph Bassett of Sapcote and Sir John Gernon, who were respectively the grandson and son of the sisters of Edmond de Coleville. These estates consisted of the castle and demesnes of Bytham, the manors of Abington and Benefield, Wicken in Cambridgeshire, and Thornton Steward in Yorkshire, and writs issued in 136'J to the Sheriffs of these counties, to make due partition between the two coheirs, when Abington, Beuefield, and Wicken were allotted to Gernon.
