Richard, son of Nicholaa de la Haye and Gerard de Camvile married Eustachia, daughter and heiress of Gilbert Basset, and had by her a daughter Idonea, who married William Longespee, son of William Longespess, earl of Salisbury. Idonea and William had a granddaughter, Margaret Longespee, who brought the contableship of Lincoln Castle to the earldom of Lincoln by her marriage to Earl Henry de Lacy.

~ Medieval Lincoln, pp. 87-89

• Background Information. 1187
Richard de Camville
held 1 knight's fee in Oxfordshire in 1166, of which Godington no doubt formed part, for Richard and his brother Roger granted lands in Godington to Missenden Abbey (Bucks.) about that time. Richard died in 1176.

Richard's eldest son Gerard married Nichole, daughter and heiress of Richard de la Hay, hereditary Sheriff of Lincolnshire and Constable of Lincoln castle, and held these offices in his wife's right. Gerard supported Count John against King Richard and so lost his lands, and in 1194 had to pay 2,000 marks for their recovery.

Gerard died about the end of 1214, leaving his son Richard, the husband of a daughter of Gilbert Basset, as his heir. Unlike his mother Nichole, Richard seems to have sided with the barons in the civil war, and suffered for his opposition. He recovered some of his confiscated manors early in 1217, but died a few years later.

Richard's heir was his daughter Idoine, and the right to arrange for her marriage had been given to William Longespée, Earl of Salisbury, in 1216.

~A History of the County of Oxford, Vol. VI, pp. 146-152
