The meaning appears to be that the right reverted to Roger through Elizabeth mother of Hugh son of John de Merflet, and daughter of Alice wife of the aforesaid Robert Bauge, daughter of Alice daughter of the aforesaid William de Bello Campo.
Barton. [Moieties of a messuage and] of a bovate of land, whereof Thomas son of Walter son of Walter de Feriby, aged 53 years and more, is heir, [by reason of a fine] levied in the king’s court between William Baugy and Agnes, his wife, querents, and Hugh Busk of Feriby and Idonia, his wife, deforciants, whereby Hugh and Idonia recognized the aforesaid moieties to be the right of William and Agnes, and surrendered them in court as the right and inheritance of Agnes; from whom the right descended to Robert Baugy, son and heir of William and Agnes; and from him to Robert his son and heir; and from him, because he died without heir of himself, to Elizabeth, his sister, whom John de Merflet married; and from her to Hugh, her son and heir by the said John.

A messuage, 3 tofts, 50a. land, 8a. meadow and 24s. 6d. rent, whereof William Wryght of Barton, aged 40 years and more, is heir by reason of a fine levied between Thomas Saffray of Barton and Agnes his wife, sometime wife of William Baugy, querents, and William son of Walter de Feriby, deforciant, whereby the latter surrendered the premises to the said Thomas and Agnes and the heirs of Thomas by Agnes, with remainder to Robert son of William Baugy and the heirs of his body, and reversion to the right heirs of Thomas Saffray.

Hugh died without heir of himself [or through Elizabeth his mother], so the premises escheat as stated.
12 1/2a. land, whereof [William] son of William de Melton of Barton …………….. is heir in remainder, by reason that John de Gascryk gave them to William Baugy and Agnes his wife, and the heirs of their bodies, with remainder to the right heirs of William [Baugy]. The descent is traced as before to Hugh, and on his death without heir of himself the remainder went to John, son of William Baugy by Alice his first wife, from him to Margaret his daughter, married to …. de Bukton, and from her to Ellis de Bukton, her son and heir, who [died without heir of himself], and from him to his kinswoman Agnes, sister of John Baugy, and from her, who died without heir of herself, to ….. son of William de Melton, kinsman and heir of the aforesaid Agnes sister of Alice daughter (sic) of the aforesaid John …… of William de Melton the elder, father of the aforesaid William.
