Guncelin is thought to be the son of Bartholomew who died in 1248 and the grandson of Guncelin and a Miss Peyferer, the daughter of Fulk. He was born about 1232, other sources say 1244.

He was the husband of Joan ZitzBernard, the daughter of Ralph. They had two children:
* Bartholomew Badlesmere, married Margaret de Clare
* Maud, wife of Sir Robert de Burghersh

Guncelin was a witness to the exchange of the King's seal at Tonbridge Castle 27 August 1297, appointed to the office of Justice of Chester 16 October 1274. He was part of an expedition to Wales in 1282 and another to France in 1297. Guncelin was part of a writ on 13 April 1301 was to start inquiries into the next heir for lands that had been held by the king. In October 1302 there were concerns about the executors of his will.

Guncelin died in the 29th year of the reign of King Edward, 1301, and buried in Badlesmere Church, where his wooden cross effigy can still be seen.
