The petition states that Robert was only one year of age at his father's death, was twenty years in wardship, and only lived three years after he came of age. His death took place before 27 Feb 1242, for it appears in 26 Henry III, the King gave the Prior of Penwortham, the manor of Walton to be held until the majority of the heir of John Banastre whose wardship belonged to the King by cession of the Earl of Lincoln. This son John, evidently died in infancy very shortly after his father. John's brother Robert Banastre claimed the restoration of Prestatyn in 6 Edward I, and succeeded to the inheritance of his father, Robert Banastre and brother, John Banastre.
