Baldwin Lovel, son of Ralph, is known only by the pedigree produced in court in 1280 and later by his descendants.(*)
(*) In 1280 his descendant Hugh [Somerset Pleas, Som. Rec. Soc., vol, iv. pt. 1, p. 148] put in a pedigree of successful owners (as he claimed) of Tintenhull, viz. Ralph\emdash son Baldwin\emdash son Ralph\emdash sons Henry, Maurice (all s.p.) and Richard\emdash sons William (s.p.) and Henry\emdash sons Richard (s.p.) and Hugh, the plaintiff. He places the first Ralph in the time of the great-grandfather (Henry II) of the then King, but it should certainly have been Henry I, for charter evidence shows that the first Ralph associated with men of the entourage of Henry I. The claim to Tintenhull which Hugh was supporting was revived under Richar II [De Banco Roll, Mich. 22 Ric. II. rot. 349] by Hugh's descendant Richard de Seymour, who produced the same pedigree, except that he placed the first Ralph in the time of Henry III.
