Clues: Richard Adderbury acquired a life interest in the manor of Kidlington on the death of Elizabeth de la Vache in 1414. After 1546 that manor was said to have ?descended like Steeple Barton? (which this Lucy was said to be heiress of). (VCH)
In 1415 Sir Richard Adderbury (d 1416) began to sell up his entire inheritance, disposing of some estates to his nephew, Sir Richard Arches.
