Sir Hugh died in 1315. He was a Knight of the Shire and represented Northamptonshire in 7 Parliaments. His elder brother Baldwin, probably born at Blisworth, did not inherit. His [whose?] son, the 1st Lord Blisworth, defended the Scottish frontier on behalf of the King and lived in the stronghold of Liddel Castle in Cumberland.
Sir Hugh Wake of Bourne in Lincolnshire inherited in 1265 the Manor of Blisworth. He lived in a manor house, long since fallen down, just south-east of the Church. It had a park and a warren. He already held lands at Deeping near Bourne, and in Guernsey.
Both Sir Hugh's grandfather Baldwin and grandson Sir Thomas were Patrons of the Living of Blisworth and appointed the earliest recorded Rector in 1272.
