bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 141
, Earl of Warwick, eldest son and heir, was probably under age at his father's death and obtained the Earldom in 1123, before Easter (15 April), when his name first appears as a witness to a royal charter. He attested charters of Henry I, the last two in 1131. After the accession of Stephen he was at the Easter Court (22 March 1135/6) at Westminster. In April, he witnessed the King's charter of liberties at Oxford, and in the same year he was with Stephen at Winchester. After the battle of Lincoln, 2 February 1140/1, he joined the Empress Maud of his own free will. He served with her at the siege of Winchester in 1141, but early in 1142 he was with Stephen at Stamford. He does not seem to have taken any active part in the Civil War, but at an unknown date he allowed Warwick Castle to be garrisoned by Stephen's troops. In 1153 he was with the King when he heard that Henry's knights had tricked the garrison and the Castle surrendered. Although he was not to blame, it is said that he was so overcome with shame and grief that he died suddenly. He founded the Templars' House and St. Michael's Hospital, both in Warwick, completed the foundation of Warwick Priory and was a benefactor to a large number of religious foundations.

Roger, Earl of Warwick, married Gundred, elder daughter of William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey, by Isabel/Elizabeth, widow of Robert de Beaumont, Count of Meulan & 1st Earl of Leicester, daughter of Hugh de Crépy, Count of Vermandos. Roger died in 1153. His widow, Gundred, married, as his 2nd wife, William de Lancaster, Lord of Kendal. Gundred was living in 1166.
