Hugh de Beauchamp's successor was Simon de Beauchamp, in all probability his son, (Dugdale's version which makes Simon the elder and Payn the younger son of Hugh de Beauchamp is not compatible with documentary evidence and has been discarded.) who had succeeded some time before 1114, about which date he was overlord of Robert de Brienne and others in Bedfordshire. [Cart. Mon. de Rames. (Rolls Ser.), i, 83, 143] His death took place c. 1137, when he left a daughter as heir. [Hist. Eccl. Orderici Vitalis, 966] The following year the castle is found in the possession of Miles de Beauchamp, described as one of the sons of Robert de Beauchamp, [Ibid.; Gesta Steph. (Rolls Ser.), iii, 30] who is presumed to be a younger brother of Simon de Beauchamp.
