Early Life

Idonea de Longspee was born about 1208. She passed away about 1268.[5]


Ida married Ralph de Somery, Baron of Dudley.

Ida married a second husband, Sir William de Bellocamp Bedeford[4]

Ida and her husband William had children:

  1. Maud de Beauchamp;

Sir William, Ida's second husband, died on 15 August 1261.[2]


In July 37 Henry III [1253], Little Linford manor co Buckingham, was held of Sir William de Bellocampo Bedeford and Idonea his wife of the honour of Newort Paynel.[4]

Several writs were issued in October 46 Henry III [1261] regarding William de Bello Campo de Bedeford, and the resulting Inquisitions held in Staunford town, Ravenesden, Hardwyk and Dilewyk, all in co Bedford, found William died on the Sunday after the Assumption of the Blessed Mary,[2] which is celebrated on 15 August (see Wikipedia:Assumption of Mary).

The Inquisition at Dilewyk was held in response to a writ dated 22 October 46 Henry III because of a petition from Ida de Bello Campo, and it found Lady Ida de Bello Campo held Delewyk manor for life by fine made in the King's court between her and the said William.[2]

An Inquisition on the Sunday after the Conversion of St Paul, 51 Henry III [1266], found that Linford manor co Buckingham was held of the fee of Newport of the barony of Sir Roger de Somery, and Lady Ida de Bello Campo held it in dower.[6]
