    Name: Lord of Dudley & Dinas Powis, Roger DE SOMERY

    Note:
    Roger de Somery, d. on or bef. 26 Aug 1273, Lord Dudley, held Dinas Powis; m. (1) Nichole d'Augbigny; m. (2) in or bef. 1254, Amabilia de Chaucombe, d. c 1278, daughter & coheir of Sir Robert de Chaucombe and widow of Sir Gilbert de Segrave. [Ancestral Roots]

    The Magna Charta Sureties states that Roger is the son of John de Somery and Hawise de Paynell. However Ancestral Roots has John and Hawise as grandparents with a generation "27a" (obviously a later addition to the original numbering for line 55) indicating Ralph de Somery and Margaret Marshal. I believe that Ancestral Roots has the latest and correct information.

    -------------------------

    ROGER DE SOMERY, uncle and heir. In 1229 he made an agreement with Maurice de Gant, granting to the latter Dudley and Sedgley for 7 years, and undertaking not to marry within that term without Maurice's consent. On 20 April 1230 he was granted protection. In 1233 his lands were seized because he had not come to be knighted; and in January 1233/4 he was appointed to remain at Shrewsbury to maintain order in those parts. On 11 July 1245 he was summoned to be at Chester with arms and horses; and on 30 July 1247 he had a grant of free warren at Chipping Campden, Gloucester, and Sedgley, Staffs. In 1251 he was in a commission; in May 1253 was going to Gascony; and on 3 November 1253 he was granted free warren at Clent. In December 1253 and January 1253/4 he was with the King. In July 1257 he was summoned to Chester to go to Wales with the King. In 1258 he was one of 12 elected to treat with the King's Council, and one of the 24 appointed by the barons. In 1260 he was summoned to London and later to Shrewsbury, and on 11 September 1261 to St. Albans. In 1262 he was to be warned for building a castle at Dudley without licence. On 23 December 1262 he was summoned to be at Worcester, and on 25 May 1263 to be at Hereford. On 10 August 1263 he was directed to deliver to Hamon Lestrange the cos. of Salop and Staffs; and on 17 October was summoned to Windsor. On 16 March 1263/4 he obtained licence to enclose his manor houses of Dudley, Staffs, and Weoley, Worcs, with a ditch and wall of stone, and fortify and crenellate them. On 30 January 1265/6 he was granted protection as going to the Marches on the King's service. In 1267 he was commissioned with others to hear complaints and to carry out the terms of the dictum of Kenilworth, and to complete the peace with Llewelin. In 1268 with Philip Basset and others he was elected by the Counties of Hereford, Salop, Staffs and Warwick, to act with the Council of the earls and barons; and was appointed as a commissioner to ordain the aid for a number of countics. In 1268 also he was appointed to settle affairs in the March; and on 28 April 1269 to hear contentions in Wales. On 12 February 1269/70 he was granted a market and a yearly fair at Newport (Pagnell), Bucks; on 16 October 1270 he was sent as envoy to Llewelin. In June 1271 he pronounced a sentence of excommunication against an official of Canterbury, which was subsequently cancelled by the Chancellor.

    He married, 1stly, Nichole, daughter and one of the coheirs of William (DE AUBIGNY), EARL OF ARUNDEL, by Mabel, sister and heir of Ranulph, EARL OF CHESTER. He married, 2ndly, in or before 1254, Amabil, widow of Gilbert DE SEGRAVE, daughter and coheir of Robert DE CHAUCOMBE, of Chalcombe, Northants. He died on or before 26 August 1273.
