Richard Lovel, son and heir, was a minor at his father's death, and the wardship of his lands and person was granted to a Scottish knight, Sir John Soules. When the latter took part against Edward I in 1295, it was transferred to William Martin. On 10 Jun 1297, the having received his homage and given him livery of his lands the preceding day, Richard took oath at Canterbury to serve with horses and arms according to his power in the war against France. Holding lands or rents to the value of £40 p.a. or more, he was summoned for service against the Scots in 1300 (when he offered the service of four men instead of person attendance) and later.
Richard Lovel married, before 1307, Muriel, daughter and heir of Sir John Soules, his first guardian by Hawise, sister of Sir James Fitz Alan, Steward of Scotland. She died in 1318 and Richard died 31 Jan 1350/1.
