The Pipe Roll 1223 includes land of “Ricardo filio et heredi Willelmi de Harocurt...in soka de Stratton” in Warwickshire. "Richard de Harcourt" was accorded a repayment schedule for a debt of "William de Harcourt his father", dated [Apr] 1230. "Ricardus de Harcourt dominus de Elinhale" donated land "in villa de Brugeford" to Ronton priory, for the soul of "Aurabilæ uxoris meæ", by undated charter.

A writ dated 2 Apr "42 Hen III", after the death of "Richard de Harecurt" names "William his son aged 30 and more is his heir" and manors in Leicestershire, Oxfordshire and Staffordshire. 1
