Richard de Camvill was the son of Gerard de Camvill.[1]

In 1200, Gerard de Camvill paid £1,000 to the king [John] for the guardianship of Eustace, daughter and heir of Gilbert Basset, with Eustace's lands and the liberty to dispose of her in marriage to his son Richard; Eustace had married Thomas de Verdon, baron of Alton, county Stafford, and lord of the manor of Heth, county Oxford, at the beginning of the reign of King Richard I.[1]

In 1204, Richard de Camville, son of Gerard de Camvill, the husband of Eustace, daughter and heir of Gilbert Basset, lord of Burcester, and widow of Thomas de Verdon, claimed in right of his wife the whole estate of her late husband, which was in the possession of Nicholas de Verdon, brother of Thomas; the court found Nicholas should restore the manors of Farnham, co Bucks, and of Heth, county Oxford, to Eustace, as a reasonable dower.[1]

In 1205, Richard de Camvill gave the king 2,000 marks and 10 palfreys for livery of the inheritance of Gilbert de Basset, his wife's late father, excepting the manor of Stoke claimed by the king.[1]

At Easter term, 1206, a court case for the right of the church of Keingworth between Richard de Camvill and his wife, Eustace, versus the prior of Keingworth was adjourned sine die because Richard was absent on the king's service.[1]
