In 1130 11 carucates at Kibworth, Leics, were held by Walter de Beauchamp, and one carucate by Richard Basset. Walter had acquired much land held in 1086 by Robert dispensator, who was the uncle of Walter's wife. The single carucate held by Richard Basset was described in 1130 as being de feodo Matildis Ridel, and Richard must therefore have acquired it through his marriage with Maud, daughter of Geoffrey Ridel. It may be deduced from this that Geoffrey had held it before his death in 1121.
The Basset holding at Kibworth Beauchamp cannot be traced further, though a carucate there belonging to the Basset Fee is mentioned in a document which may belong to Henry III's reign, but Walter de Beauchamp's descendants long remained lords of KIBWORTH BEAUCHAMP manor. In 1298 William de Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, died possessed of the manor, and it continued to be held by his descendants until all the lands of Thomas, Earl of Warwick, were forfeited in 1397 as a result of his hostility to Richard II.
