Under Henry II, Walter de Camville held land at Pickwell which had apparently been in the possession of the Camville family before he inherited it. Walter was succeeded by his son Roger. By 1279 the Camville fee at Pickwell and Leesthorpe was being held as 3 knights' fees by Andrew of Astley, or Eastley, whose father Thomas is said to have married Roger's sister and co-heir. The 3 knights' fees continued to be held by the Astley family until at least 1361, when Thomas of Astley was in possession.
