    He was described as a young, lusty, valiant knight in great esteem with King Edward II. Sir Oliver preformed military service in Scotland in 1310 & 1314.
    In 1321, he was governor of Ellesmere Castle (Shropshire) and was summoned to parliament in 1328, 1333 & 1341. He was also governor of Marlborough Castle and the Devizes. In 1324, he was Sheriff of Norfolk and in 1325 he was Seneschal of Aquitaine when the King gave him 500 marks and raised an army to retake the county of Agnois from the French.
    In 1327 he attached himself to Mortimer's party and was summoned to parliament as a Baron.
    In 1328, he was Justice of Chester when the King directed him to levy a hue and cry against Roger Mortimer, the King's enemy. In 1330 he tried the former Lord Mayer of London but was later arrested by order of King Henry III as one of Mortimer's supporters. However, by 1333 he was once more made Seneschal of Aquitaine. In 1339, he defeated the French before Bordeaux.
    Baron Oliver died in 1344 and was buried at Ingham.
    Oliver had a son called John and two daughters, Elizabeth who married John de Curzon, and Joan who married Roger le Strange and afterwards Sir Miles Stapleton - Knight of the Garter who came from Bedale in Yorkshire
    His eldest dau Elizabeth predeceased her father:
    In 1344 Oliver Ingham died leaving co-heirs, his daughter Joan wife of Roger Lestrange, and his granddaughter Mary daughter of John Curzon.
    (VCH West Tytherley with Buckholt.)
    His effigy at Ingham lies on a bed of pebbles, sword in hand, two angels holding his helmet. Figures of mourners are set in relief around the base. The whole thing is almost identical in form to the one of Sir William de Kerdiston a few miles off at Reepham, although not in as good condition. Interestingly, it was analysed in 1993 using polychromy techniques, and evidence of a rich colour scheme was unearthed.
