Name: Thomas de CAMVILLE , of Arrow & Seckington, Sir 1 2
Birth: ABT 1233 in Seckington, Tamworth, Warwickshire, England
Death: BEF 5 MAR 1301/02 in Sibson, Market Bosworth, Leicestershire, England
Manor of Seckington, Warwickshire:
About 1170 Richard Bruton, with the assent of his brother Hamon, sold the demesne of Seckington, held of the Earl of Leicester, to William de Camville. William married Aubreye Marmion, from whom their son William received both this ¼ fee and another ¼ fee held of the Earl of Warwick. The younger William's grandson Thomas is found holding ? fee in Seckington of the Earl of Warwick in 1267 and 5 virgates there of the Earl of Winchester in 1270. Thomas's son Gerard de Camville died before 1316, when his daughter Elizabeth, who married Robert Burdet, held the Warwick fee. In 1314, however, 1/6 fee in Seckington was held of Alan la Zouche, and in 1328 of Robert de Holand by Sir William Martin. He was son of Sir Nicholas Martin, first husband of Maud who married Geoffrey de Camville, second cousin of Gerard, but his right to the fee does not appear.
Robert Burdet had a grant of free warren in Seckington in 1327, and his son and heir Robert was born here in 1345. The manor then followed the descent of Bramcote in Polesworth (q.v.) in this family, until 1919, when Sir Francis Burdett, 8th Baronet, sold the estate in lots.
