Remarks: Ranulf, or Ralph, de Nevill, being in minority at the time of his grandfather's decease in 1282, obtained liberty of the king that his friends might plough and manage his lands and, in 1285, had livery of certain manors, part of his inheritance. Soon after this, he had a warm contest with the prior of Durham about the presentation of a stag upon St. Cuthbert's Day, in September, "which, in truth," says Dugdale, "was rather a rent than an obligation, in regard he held Raby with the eight adjoining townships by the yearly rent of £4 and a stag. For, contrary to the custom of his ancestors, he not only required that the prior of Durham, at the offering of that stag, ought to feast him and all the company he should bring, but that the prior's own menial servants should, for that time, be set aside, and his peculiar servants and officers be put in their stead. Whereupon, amongst other of his guests, he invited John de Baliol, of Barnard Castle, who refused to go with him, alleging that he never knew the Nevilles to have such a privilege there; Sir William de Bromtpon, the bishop's chief justice, likewise acknowledging that he himself was the first that began the extravagant practice for being a young man and delighting in hunting, he came with the Lord Nevill at the offering of the stag and said to his companions, 'Come, let us go to the abbey and wind our horns,' and so they did. The prior father adding, that before the time of this Ranulph, none of his predecessors ever made any such claim, but when they brought the stag into the hall, they had only a breakfast, nor did the lord ever stay dinner, except he were invited." This Ranulph was summoned to parliament as a Baron, 8 June, 1294, and from that period to 18 February, 1331. His lordship was in the wars of France, and in those of Scotland in the next reign. It is said, however, that he little minded secular business but devoted the principal part of his time to conversation with the canons of Merton and Coverham, upon whom he bestowed some considerable grants. He married first, Euphemia, daughter of Robert and sister of John de Clavering. His lordship married secondly, Margery, daughter of John, son of Marmaduke de Thweng. He died in 1331, was buried on the south side of the altar at Coverham, and was survived by his only surviving son, Ralph de Nevill.
