(a) He was a minor in 1203, when he was vouched to warrant land in Biddisham, given him by his late father Henry (_Curia Regis Roll._, vol. ii, p. 206), and is probably the Richard Lovel junior who held 2 knights’ fees in Somerset and Dorset in 1210-12 (_Red Book_, p. 545). The 1280 pedigree (see ante, p. 200, note “a") inserts a brother Maurice, holding the family estates, between Henry and Richard. (b) _Rot. Lit. Claus._, vol. i, p. 373. (c) _Excerpt. e Rot.

(g) __Close Rolls_, 1227-31, p. 448. (h) _Idem_, p. 487. (i) _Book of Fees_, pp. 426, 427. (j) _Somerset Fines_, vol. i, p. 101. (k) _Reg. Sci. Andree_ (Bannatye Club), p. 261. (l) _Bruton Cartul._, ut supra, no. 38. The land had been given with the consent of his brothers and himself for the endowment of the chapel of Pidecombe at its dedication. Another confirmation (no. 47) was attested by his son Sir Henry Lovel, and by Sir Maurice Lovel. (m) _Book of Fees_, pp. 689, 736. (n) _Idem_, p. 1265. (o) Pipe Roll, 38 Hen. III. (q) _Excerpt. e Rot. Fin._, vol.. ii, p. 200. (r) He paid for it 200 marks of silver and 2 marks of gold; it had previously been granted to William de Berkele, the King’s yeoman, who, however, took another wife (_Cal. Patent Rolls_, 1247-58, pp. 503-4). [Ref: CP VIII:203]
