|1st Husband||William de la Launde|
|2nd Husband||Alan de Waldschef|
|Children||Joan, William, John, Matilda|
Lucy was probably born in Okeover around the 1230s (1), the daughter of Hugh de Acovere (2)(3)(4).
She married William de la Launde (2)(3)(4) of Newton, near Pickering in Yorkshire, probably in the early 1250s. They settled at Caldelowe in Derbyshire, on the lands granted her by her father, and had a daughter Joan, followed by a son William around 1261, then another son John and another daughter Matilda (5).
Her husband died in or shortly before 1270 (2). Following his death, the king granted Lucy's marriage to Thierry le Alemaunt (7), but Lucy bought it (and the right to her heirs' marriages) back from him the following year (8).
She eventually remarried to Alan de Waldeskaf, sometime before 1278 (9). She and Alan vouched for her daughter Joan, and Richard de Morley her husband, in a dispute over land in Alsop, Derbyshire in 1281 (10)(11)(12). Nothing later is known of her.

Goditha replied that at the time the Fine was levied Roger was within the four seas, becuase he wasat Mynsterton in co. Leicester, which she was prepared to prove. Philip repeated that on the date of the Fine and for a year and a day afterwards, the said Roger was in Scotland, and died there, which he was prepared to prove*. A day was therefore given to the parties in Banco on the Tuesday after three weeks from St Michael, on which day both Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and because the plea could not be determined in co. Derby a day was given to the parties on the Thursday at a month from St Michael, on which day Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and stated that they were prepared to maintain their pleas as given above, and prayed that a jury might be summoned from co Leicester; and the Sheriff was ordered to summon a jury for the Octaves of St Hillary. A postscript shows that no jury had been empanelled up to the morrow of the Ascension. m334.
