Richard Abberbury, elected MP for Oxfordshire in October 1328 and appointed as sheriff for Oxfordshire and Berkshire in 1333?4, was the first lay member of the family to achieve some local prominence, but after his death a series of minorities and a reorganization of the family lands, which settled some of the Oxfordshire properties on a cadet branch, reduced the Abberburys' prominence once more.
Following the death of Sir John Abberbury (c.1316?1346), Richard's son, at the siege of Calais, the family estates were eventually inherited by John's nephew, Sir Richard [ii] Abberbury (c.1330?1399).
