The will itself was not recorded in the register and is now lost. In 1285, by commandment of Edward I, James de Okeston conveyed Modbury to him. On 13 Apr 1315, a plea of covenant was summoned wherein James de Oxton acknowledged the manor and advowson of Brideford (Bridford) to be the right of Richard as by James's gift, to be held by James for his life upon payment of a yearly rose, and after his death the manor and advowson would revert in its entirety to Richard (Devon Fines, 2: no. 1023). On 20 Jan 1315/6, James de Oxton and Ida, his wife, acknowledged the manor of Modbury and advowson and priory of Modbury to be the right of Henry de Lappeslode as by James' gift, that Henry granted the manor and advowson to James and Ida for their lives, and after their deaths, the manor and advowson shall remain in their entirety to Richard de Campo Arnulphi and his heirs (Devon Fines, 2: no. 1031).

Knight of the Shire for Devon Oct 1324 and Sept 1331 (Parliaments, pp. 71, 94). On 7 July 1324 he was a knight liable for military service against the Scots (RTDA, 71: 292, 294). On 28 Aug 1325, he was commissioned to pursue and arrest disturbers of the peace and on 28 Feb 1326 was appointed a commissioner of the peace in co. Cornwall. On 20 Mar 1326, he was appointed arrayer for co. Cornwall (Cal. Patent Rolls, 1321-4, pp. 228, 285, 222). In 1332, he was holding lands in Brixton, Compton and Egg Buckland, Highampton, North Buckland, and Modbury (Devon Lay Subsidy of 1332, p. 12, 15, 65, 81, 100).
