Agnes died well before 1310/11, when the descendants of her father's four sisters were found to be his heirs: (2) Agnes (married Sir Thomas Fitz William), (2) Isabel (married Sir Philip Darcy), (3) Christian (married first, unknown de Penulbury, second Sir Robert de Ros), and (4) Ada (married Sir William d'Aton).
