However the following is from The Surrey Archeological Collections, Vol. 1 published by the Surrey Archeological Society, 1858:
“And the treasurers and barons answered that having examined the rolls and memoranda of the Exchequer, it was found that one Richard Vabadune, whose daughter and heir, Sarra de Vabadune by name, was married to Roger de Bavent, father of the said Adam (of which Roger and Sarra the said Adam de Bavent was son and heir), held one fee of the king in capite ut de corona in Hachesham, in the county of Surrey, and the said custody therefore belonged to the king, the tenure by which Adam held of William de Say or of any other person in whatever manner not withstanding.

In the IPM of Adam Bavent, taken on 5 Jan. 21 Edw. I in Suffolk, it is written that “
“His manor in the hamlet of Watesford (extent given), held of Sir Roger son of Albert [alias *Osbert], from which 63s. 8 1/2d. ought to be paid yearly.
Memorandum. That it is found in a certain book of the exchequer that Richard Vabadun held of the king 3 knights’ fees: and he was ancestor of Adam de Bavent on his mother’s side, and his lands &c. descended to the said Adam through his mother’s death.”
