Saunder's *English Baronies* pp.10-12 discusses the barony of Bedford.
Hugh de Beauchamp (d.? before 1114) held lands of the barony in 1086.His
eldest son Simon I succ. and d.1137/38. Simon's daughter and heir(name
unknown) married but in fact did not inherit (there was a squabbleabout
it). Her paternal uncle Robert d. before 1137 (i.e. before Simon I)and his
sons Miles (d. at some time after 1142) and Payn (d.1156) succeeded inturn
to the barony.
Payn was followed by his son Simon II (d.1207)and Simon II by his sonand
heir William I (d.1260). His eldest son Simon III dead by 1257 vp. Hisnext
two sons in turn succeeded: William II (dsp.1262) and John dsp.1265).John's
sisters Maud and Beatrice and the children of a third sister Ela were
coheirs of the barony.

Saunders p.40 notes that Hugh I (d.1187) of Eaton Socon in Beds. was
probably an illegitimate son of Simon I or of his brother Robert. The
cartulary of Warden Abbey says he was the son of Simon I.

Saunders does not mention Beatrice but I have a note saying she isattested
as sister of Payn de Beauchamp, daughter of Robert and wife of Hugh de
Morville (d.1162). I will check this out. Saunders does not mentionthe
marriage of Payn to Rohese de Vere (d.1166) which casts some doubt onit
since he normally mentions cross connections between the baronialfamilies
with which he deals. Maud (d.1273 wife firstly of Roger de Mowbray
(d.1266)of Thirsk and secondly of Roger Lestrange (d.1311) ofEllesmere) and
Beatrice (d. before 30 Sept 1285) were daughters of William I by hisfirst
marriage to Gunnora de Lanvaley (d. before 1200). Beatrice marriedfirstly
Thomas fitz Oates (d.1274) and secondly William de Mountchesney(d.1302) of
Edwardstone. William I's daughter by his second marriage to IdaLongespee
(d.1266/69), Ela (d. ca.1265), married Balwin Wake (d.1282) of Bourne.
