Birth: ABT 1268
Death: ABT 1305 in Bondesbury Manor, Guilden Morden, Cambridgeshire, England 2
Bondesbury Manor, Guilden Morden,
BONDESBURY had also been held under Orwell's lords. Ralph de Banks (fl. from 1209) held a fee at Guilden Morden of the Torpels between 1224 and 1245. Sir Hugh de Broc held that manor of Sir John de Camoys in 1279. Before 1297 Sir Richard of Wells as nephew and heir of Geoffrey of Wells released to Robert Hereward the manor already granted to Robert by Geoffrey's widow Isabel.
Hereward, while sheriff of Cambridgeshire 1300-1, entailed 1 carucate in Morden, held as ½ fee c. 1302, and died c. 1305. His heir was his daughter Margaret, who after 1313 married Sir William Lovell, lord in 1346, when he was granted free warren at Morden. In 1348 he mortally wounded his steward in his own hall at Guilden Morden and fled, dying later that year. His daughter and heir Beatrice died after 1361. John son of Roger Chamber, tenant of Lovell's Buckinghamshire lands, in 1383 granted Bondesbury to Thomas Haselden, to whom Sir Ralph Lovell of Norfolk released it in 1384.

NOTE: The Feast of St. Gregory was originally 12 Mar, so the above was the Wednesday after that date in 1304. Robert would have been alive, and might have been sheriff of Norfolk after being sheriff of Cambridge.
