Roger Bertram, in the 42nd of Henry III , had command with other great barons of the north to march into Scotland for the rescue of the young King of Scots, the King of England's son-in-law, out of the hands of his rebellious subjects; but, in the 48th of the same monarch , being in arms with the other rebellious barons, he was taken prisoner at Northampton, and his castle of Mitford seized upon by the escheator of the crown* while he was himself committed to the custody of William de Valence. He must, however, have made his peace very soon afterwards, for we find him summoned to parliament as a Baron (the first by writ) in the next year, 14 December, 1264. His lordship had issue by Joan, his wife (who m. 2ndly, Robert de Neville):
