He died in 1288, leaving as heir his son William de Lea, who acquired the manor of Mollington Banastre near Chester by his marriage with Clemency Banastre [Dods. MSS. cxlii, fol. 32b. Clemency was daughter of Robert Banastre]. Their son Henry, taking part with Adam Banastre in his rebellion in October/November 1315, was executed; but his sister Sibyl was able to secure the inheritance, which she carried by marriage to Sir Richard de Hoghton of Hoghton [Dods.
