    • Biography

      Clarence Smith, quoting various sources he explains (p.8) concerning her father Ralph de Hastings of Little Easton that: "He was dead by Michaelmas 1210, leaving a daughter under age whose custody and marriage had been granted to Alan Bassett for 100 marks. It is not therefore surprising to find at the death of Sir Philip Basset of Wycombe, younger son of this Alan, in 1271, that he held under Sir Matthew de Lovaine the manor of Wix 'by courtesy of England of the inheritance of Helewisia his wife'." (The courtesy of England was a legal custom in England meaning husbands could hold the inheritance of their wives sometimes.) Her heir was Aline who married twice, to Hugh le Dispencer and to Roger Bigod Earl of Norfolk, and Aline's heir, also named Hugh le Dispencer, was a famous favourite to King Edward II, and "Wix was forfeited with the rest of his possessions on his execution in 1326".[1]

      Concerning the difference between Clarence-Smith's proposal and that found in older sources, a discussion has been initiated.[2] Pending the results of that it appears that the gist of the difference is that both theories rely on the above mentioned wife of Philip having a right to an inheritable sub-infeudation of Wix. Either this was a new grant by the overlord Matthew de Louvain, implying she may be his daughter, or else she could be the heiress of the pre-existing tenant. Only Clarence-Smith shows awareness of there having been such a tenant who was known to have an heiress, and whose heiress's marriage rights were known to have been bought by the Bassets.
