The Political History of England 1216-1377, Vol III, T F Tout, 1905, AMS Press, p41: "...In October 1232, died Randolph of Blundeville, the last representative of the male stock of the old line of the Earls of Chester..." p42: "...His memory, living on long in the minds of the people, inspired a series of ballads which vied in popularity with the cycle of Robin Hood, though, unfortunately, they have not come down to us. His estates were divided among his four sisters. His nephew, John the Scot, Earl of Huntingdon, received a re-grant of the Chester earldom; his Lancashire lands had already gone to his brother-in-law, William of Ferrars, Earl of Derby; other portions of his territories went to his sister, the Countess of Arundel, and the Lincoln earldom, passing through another sister, Hawise of Quincy, to her son-in-law, John of Lacy constable of Chester, raised the chief vassal of the palatinate to comital rank. None of these heirs of a divided inheritance were true successors to Randolph. With him died the last of the great Norman houses, tenacious beyond its fellows, and surpassing in its two centuries of unbroken male descent the usual duration of the medieval baronial family..."
