Issue: Margaret de Gatesden. Born 22 Jan 1246.
At some date previous to 1242 Bartholomew had granted to John de Gatesden 2 virgates and 3 acres of land and a rent of 8s. from his demesne land of Elsted, Sussex, and John agreed with the prior that all the land of Elsted which the prior had acquired from the Crofts should be held by John in fee tail, with reversion in default of issue of John to the prior. (fn. 15) The church, advowson, and tithes of 3 acres were to be held by the prior. (fn. 16) John also agreed to pay Clemence £10 a year from Elsted as her dower. (fn. 17) She survived John de Gatesden and the annuity was confirmed to her by the king in 1262. (fn. 18) Half a carucate of land in Elsted was part of the jointure of John's widow Hawise, (fn. 19) but the manor itself appears to have passed with Trotton before John de Gatesden's death to his son John, as it was among his possessions when he died in 1258. (fn. 20) With the other Gatesden estates, Elsted passed to Margaret, daughter and heiress of the younger John de Gatesden. She and her husband John de Camoys in 1280 recognized the right of the Prior of Boxgrove to certain land and a mill in Elsted which John de Gatesden had held for his life by a lease from a former prior, and 17½ acres in Elsted in the vale of Marden.
