    !Earl of Hertford, 1156-73. [Magna Charta Sureties]

    FOSTER, NEWLIN, WAITE LINES - 23rd ggrandfather

    !5th Earl of Clare and 2nd Earl of Hertford. [Ped. of Charlemagne]

    !2nd son. Succeeded his brother Gilbert, who d.s.p 1151, as 3rd Earl of Hertford and "Earl of Clare". In 1157 he obtained permission from the king to own all lands in Wales which he could win, marched into Caerdigan, and captured and fortified the castles there. Six years afterwards he was summoned by the celebrated Thomas a Becket, to Westminster, in order to do homage to this prelate for his castle of Tonebruge, which had been restored to his father, but, at the command of King Henry, he refused, alleging that, holding it by
    military service, it belonged rather to the crown than to the Church. This earl, who, from his munificence to the church and his numerous acts of piety, was called the "good Earl of Hertford," d. 1173. [Magna Charta Barons, p. 87]

    !2nd Earl of Hertford; son of Richard de Clare and Adeliza de Meschines; m. Maud de St. Hilaire; father of Aveline de Clare. [The Royal Descents, p. 451]

    !Indignantly protested Thomas Becket's attempts to deprive him of his castle at Tonbridge. King Henry II bristled at this affront to the family of one of his mistresses (Roger's sister). [Eleanor of Aquitaine, p. 213]

    b. 1116, d. 1173; son of Richard de Clare and Alice de Meschines; m. Maud de Saint Hilary. [WFt Vol 6 Ped 1556]

    1. Castell Hywell: between Lampeter and Newcastle Emlyn; destroyed by the Welsh in 1136 and rebuilt in 1153.
    2. Aberdyfi (Aberdovey)
