Manor of Grendon, Warwickshire:

The overlordship remained with the Ferrers family and with their other lands was absorbed in the Duchy of Lancaster as part of the Honor of Tutbury. A mesne lordship of the fee was held by the Camviles, and the manor was held of them by the Grendons. In 1242 Robert de Grendon (son of Robert son of Richard son of Roger de Grendon) is returned as holding 1 knight's fee in Grendon and Whittington, held of Richard de Camville of the fee of Earl Ferrers. In 1276 Robert's son Ralphr de Grendon agreed to pay to Geoffrey de Camville scutage for 1 knight's fee, with homage and relief, and that he should render suit at the court of Geoffrey at Clifton Campvill whenever judgement is given there for a plea moved by the king's writ or a thief is judged by inquisition of the court. Subsequently, in 1299, his son Ralph and Joan his wife obtained from John de Clinton of Coleshill, who had married Alice sister of Ralph, a quitclaim of all his right in the manor.
