Don't you mean Maud (Matilda) de Camville (instead of ELeanor) - I know
of no evidence of a moity going to Eleanor, but in the 1330 ipm which
found William heir of his grandfather, dower claims were made by Isabel,
widow of the grandfather, and by Maud, widow of the father.

It really seems to fit well together, and so far the only argument that
favors an alternative is that Richard II was related to Edmund Stafford.
I don't find that weighty in overturning this body of documentation.
