• Background Information. 245
Gervase also shows up in records as Gervase Fitz Roger or "Gervasius fillus Rogeri," and his father, Roger, is written as "Rogeri nepotis Huberti." [Rot. Pip., 32 Hen. I, pp. 144, 145, 147-149] Gervase Fitz Roger was excused in the Pipe-Roll of 1130 of the payment of two shillings in Middlesex for 1127/28 and seven shillings for 1128/29 because his land is "waste." [Rot. Pip., 31 Hen. I, pp. 150, 151] We can connect this Gervase Fitz Roger with Gervase de Cornhill because the manor of Chalk was granted by the Crown to Roger "nepos Huberti" and subsequently granted to Gervase de Cornhill.
From the records of the duchy of Lancaster are two royal charters, with the first granting to Roger "nepos Huberti" the manor of Chalk in Kent, and the second with his death. The second charter mentioned that Roger had gone "ad Jerosolima." Gervase inherited this large manor from his father, and the large estate of Roger "nepos Huberti" show that Roger was, in his time, a man of some consequence.
