In England, Oliver de Asprevile witnesses Richard Earl of Cornwall's charter to the monks of Lammana in Cornwall (a cell of Glastonbury Abbey). This was in the time of Henry III. He is mentioned in the Rotuli Hundredorum as holding land at Dodington in Northamptonshire. "In the thirtieth year of Henry III., a grant was made to Oliver de Asprevile of thirty-five acres and a half of land in Dodington and Morehay, to be held of the Crown by the payment of sixpence yearly at Michaelmas, for all services. He was succeeded in them at his death, in the forty-sixth year of the same reign, by John de Asprevile, his son."—Bridge's Northamptonshire. Margerie de Aspreville held "one yardland of our Lord the King in capite in Aylesbury in the county of Bucks, by the serjeanty of keeping all the distresses made for the King's debt by the summons of the Exchequer."—Pla.
