In 1257, "John de Gravenel (Matilda de Bussey's grandson) made an agreement with Robert (each holding a moiety of Buckland), by which John granted his moiety of the manor to Robert and his heirs for ever, while Robert then granted to John the whole manor, presumably to hold for life only, since it afterwards passed to Robert's two daughters & heirs, Isabel and Idonea." (Ref: BHO)

In 1258 he sued Walter, parson of Newbigging, for poaching in his deer park. The same year he fought in Wales. He was one of the most violent of the Barons in arms against King Henry III. In 1263 he excused his absence as plaintiff in a plea in Westmorland on the ground of infirmity. He died from wounds received in battle. (Ref: MCA)
