He obtained the living of Kegworth, Leicestershire in 1279. He was then, with a dispensation for plurality, given the livings of both Harlaxton, Staffordshire in 1282 and Aylestone, Leicestershire in 1292.
He was elected to the episcopy on 17 August 1313 as Bishop of London and consecrated on 25 November 1313. Having obtained letters of safe-conduct from Louis IX, his party started home through Poitou early in September, in company with John du Plessis and William Mauduit. The party was treacherously seized by the citizens of Pons in Poitou; Segrave died in captivity on 18 December 1316.
