John de Clifford had already demised the manor to Peter Flory for his life, [Glos. R.O., D 149/L 2; Plac. de Quo Warr. [Rec. Com.], 243] and in 1296 Richard de Clifford granted a further term. (Glos. R.O., D 149/T 1007) By 1303 a life interest in the reversion of the manor, of which ? belonged to John's widow Margery as dower, had been conveyed to Robert FitzPain and his wife Isabel, and in that year, to provide maintenance for himself and his wife Sarah, education for his son, and portions for his daughters, Richard de Clifford conveyed all his interest in the manor to Thomas of Berkeley. [Ibid. L 2] In 1305 Thomas conveyed the manor to Robert and Isabel for a yearly rent of 22 marks. [C.P. 25(1)/75/39/250. Some sources say Isabel was daughter of Richard de Clifford; she is more likely to have been his sister, though hardly his coheir, as stated in Berkeley MSS. i. 189. The grant of 1305 was to Robert, Isabel, and Robert's heirs in tail.] The rent continued to be paid in the mid 17th century. (Berkeley MSS. i. 189; cf. Cal. Close, 1364-8, 446; 1389-92, 14.)
Robert FitzPain died in or before 1315, [Cal. Inq. p.m. v, p. 387] and his widow Isabel held the manor in 1316 [Feud. Aids, ii. 266] and 1320. [Glos. R.O., D 149/T 134]

Conq.) and Osbert; Richard, the eldest son, gave two virgates in Frampton to the Templars, which Roger de Cantelo held for 20s. rent, [Monast. Anglic, ji. p. 530] a name which continued here long afterwards, for William de Clifford, of Frampton, is witness to an alienation of lands in the neighbourhood of Winchcombe, by Margery, wife of Roger de Cantelue, of this place. [Reg. Magn. Abb. de Winchc. f, 150.] Richard, had issue Walter 1st Lord Clifford, who had issue Walter and Richard 2nd son, who had this Manor of Frampton.

Abb. De Godstoe, MS. Cott. Jul. C.vii]. The Sheriff was ordered to postpone the scutage he required of Richard de Clifford, with the King in foreign parts, for one fee in Frampton, and that it be delayed until the King returned.
