Geffrey, "which second Geffrey," Dugdale writes, "gave to the monks of Stonely two parts of his Mill, Called Partford Mill, with the Sute thereto, due from his tenants of Hull and Wotton; and was also a benefactor to the nunes of Polesworth, granting unto them in Robert de Weston, his bondman, with his issue. But it seems he was in some disfavour with King Richard I, for in seven of his reign (1195/6) he gave fifty marks pro habenda benevolentia Regis : in which the year he came to an agreement with Thomas de Ardern concerning the Manoor of Wotton. About the beginning of King John's time (1199) I find that Henry de Armentiers impleaded him for a Knight's Fee here, in his absence, when he was beyond sea in the King's Service, for which he had afterwards tryall by battail . . . In Six John (1204/5) it appears that being surety for William de Hardreshill to the Jews of Northampton, of whom the said William had borrowed a large sum of money, he was distrained for that debt, and thereupon necessitated to complain to the King to whom he gave a find of x. marks that the said William might be compelled to it himself. In Five Henry III (1220/1), he was joyn'd in commission with other persons of quality in this county to be one of the Justices for taking an assize of novel dissesin which Philippa Marmion had brought against Robert Marmion her husband dyed sized of in Tammworth and Middleton." This Geffrey le Savage died in 1222 and was succeeded by his son of the same name.
