Milicent de Stafford married, before 1193, Hervey Bagot, who assumed the name of de Stafford upon becoming seised of the barony. In 1166 he held 3 knights' fees of Robert de Stafford, in 1193-94. He offered 200 marks to have the barony of Robert de Stafford, which was the inheritance of his wife, Robert's sister. In 1194, with the consent of his wife and his heirs, he granted Drayton to the canons of St. Thomas the Martyr of Stafford in return for 35 silver marks towards the sum due to the King. He died before 25 August 1214, leaving his wife surviving. Milicent was dead in January 1224/5, and was buried with her husband at Stone.

From Memorials of the Bagot Family, p. 6:
"It has long appeared a matter of doubt who the Hervey Bagot was, that, in the reign of Richard I, married Milicent de Stafford, sister and sole heir to Robert the last Baron Stafford. Hervey Bagot is always styled a younger House of Bagot, but whether of Bagot's Bromley or of Hyde has seemed doubtful to many Antiquarians. Erdeswick thinks he was of Bagot's Bromley, Mr. Chetwynd endeavors to prove that he was of Hyde, and Sir William Dugdale only styles him, "A Gentleman of ancient family in those parts." After the most attentive and repeated examination of every document bearing upon the subject of this Hervey Bagot's descent, it is evident, almost to demonstration, that he must have been the Brother of Simon Bagot, of Bromley; and consequently, like him, in the third generation from Bagot, who held that manor at the time of the Domesday Survey.
Hervey married Millicent Stafford, daughter of Robert Stafford and Unknown.141 (Millicent Stafford was born about 1773 in England, died in Jan 1224-1225 in Stone, Staffordshire, England 141 and was buried in Stone Priory, Staffordshire, England 141.)
