Gordon Kirkemo has very kindly sent me a copy of an article in the Genealogist by G. Andrews Moriarty, FSA, who gives the following account of the family of de la Bere:

Roger Berkeley de Dursley (IV) d.c.1191

Daughter Isabel=(1) Thomas de Rocheford and (2) <Michaelmas 1206 William de Walerond
[I have yet to trace references to Isabel's marriages]
By marriage (1) Isabel had a daughter Alice = (1) Andrew de la Bere and (2)
Alan de Plugenet
She was dead by 29th November 1233, when her son and heir Richard de la Bere was made a ward of the Bishop of Winchester: CCR 1231-4, 346,557
By marriage (1) Alice had a son and heir Richard de la Bere [as just
Richard's son Robert de la Bere held a knight's fee at Burleton of the Earl of Hereford, and the vill of Stratford in 1316 (Feud. Aids II, 376,387) Robert "probably" had a younger brother Richard, who married Cecily "evidently" the d. of James Bourne (IPM 1328 of John, son of Cecily, sometime wife of
Richard de la Bere).

1346 Richard de la Bere held a knight's fee in Burleton, which Robert de la
once held (Feud Aids II, 391,393)
This Richard married Sibel, daughter of William de Chabbenor of Chadnor Hfs CPIII,149, This Richard was MP for Hds in 1353,1354, 1357-8, 1360 and 1369.

They had issue John, who apparently died vp.

John had issue Kinnard, and two daughters:-
Violette=1363 Sir John Chandos of Snodhill and Fownhope, dsp 16th December
1428 and Sibel=c.1370-72 Thomas de Crophull of Newbold Verdon, Leics, who d. <19th May 1382. This Thomas Crophull, son of Sir John Crophull and his wife Margaret, coheiress of Theobald, 2nd and last Lord Verdon, was the father of Agnes, wife of Sir Walter Devereux of Bodenham, slain at the battle of Pilleth, and ancestress of the later Devereux Earls of Essex, as well as the Mortons of Morton Corbet, the Leightons of Plash, Salo, and numerous other descendants of the Corbets).

The same information is in Boyer's Medieval English Ancestors of Robert Abell, p. 23, source cited: "the Family of de la Bere," The Genealogists' Magazine, Vol. X, pp. 412-415

Sibella married Sir Thomas Crophull, son of Sir John de Crophull Knight of Sutton and Margery de Verdun, before 10 Sep 1355 in Lancashire, England.141 (Sir Thomas Crophull was born in Newbold Verdum, Lancashire, England and died on 19 May 1382 in Lancashire, England.)
