  General Notes:

[ROGER de Glanville (-after Apr 1192). The primary source which confirms Roger's parentage has not been identified. However, the charters in which the Glanville family are named, in particular the charter under which his supposed brother Ranulf founded Leiston abbey and his own charter in which he names his own brother Hervé, suggest that he may have been a younger son of Hervé de Glanville. This suggestion is consistent with the chronology of his career. The Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, records "Rogerus de Glanville iv milites de feodo uxoris suĉ" in Essex in the fee of William de Montfichet. "Ranulfus de Glamvilla" founded Leiston abbey, Suffolk, confirmed by "...Rogero de Glamvilla, et Osberto et Gerardo...", by undated charter, witnessed by "...Rogero de Glamvilla, Osberto de Glamvilla...". A charter of King Henry II confirmed donations to Bungay Nunnery by "Rogeri de Glanvill et Gundredĉ comitissĉ uxoris meĉ" of property at Bungay. "Rogerus de Glanvilla" donated "ecclesiam S. Mariĉ de Middeltune" to Leiston abbey, for the souls of "meĉ et...comitissĉ Gundredĉ uxoris meĉ et...uxoris meĉ Christinĉ et...Hervei fratris mei", by undated charter. Benedict of Peterborough records the participation of "Rogerus de Glanvil" at the siege of Acre in Dec 1190. "Roger de Glanvill and Gundreda the countess his wife" donated land "in Bungey" to Bungey nunnery, confirmed 13 Mar 1235.

m firstly CHRISTIANA, daughter of ---. The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. The Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, records "Rogerus de Glanville iv milites de feodo uxoris suĉ" in Essex in the fee of William de Montfichet. "Rogerus de Glanvilla" donated "ecclesiam S. Mariĉ de Middeltune" to Leiston abbey, for the souls of "meĉ et...comitissĉ Gundredĉ uxoris meĉ et...uxoris meĉ Christinĉ et...Hervei fratris mei", by undated charter.

m secondly (after 1177) as her second husband, GUNDRED, widow of HUGH Bigod Earl of Norfolk, daughter of --- (-[1200/08]). "Rogerus de Glanvilla" donated "ecclesiam S. Mariĉ de Middeltune" to Leiston abbey, for the souls of "meĉ et...comitissĉ Gundredĉ uxoris meĉ et...uxoris meĉ Christinĉ et...Hervei fratris mei", by undated charter. A charter of King Henry II confirmed donations to Bungay Nunnery by "Rogeri de Glanvill et Gundredĉ comitissĉ uxoris meĉ" of property at Bungay. It is probably a safe conclusion that Roger de Glanville's "countess Gundred" was the widow of the earl of Norfolk as no other countess of this name has been identified at that time in England.] 1


Roger married Gundred.1 (Gundred died between 1200 and 1208 1.)
