Roger de Mortimer (before 1153-before 8 July 1214) was a medieval marcher lord, residing at Wigmore Castle in the English county of Herefordshire. He was the son of Hugh de Mortimer (d. 26 February 1181) and Matilda Le Meschin.

Roger would appear to have been of age in 1174 when he fought for King Henry II against the rebellion of his son, Henry. In 1179 Roger was instrumental in the killing of Cadwallon ap Madog, the prince of Maelienydd and Elfael, both of which Mortimer coveted. He was imprisoned until June 1182 at Winchester for this killing.

The following is from Find A Grave:
Roger Mortimer, eldest surviving son and heir of Hugh and Maud. In his father's lifetime he appears on the Pipe Roll as holding terrae datae in Worcestershire and Salop. He was a benefactor of Gloucester Abbey, of Kington, St. Michael, Wilts, of Cwmhir, of Jumièges, and Saint-Victor-en-Caux. Between 1182 and 1189 he attested at Rouen a charter of Henry II to the monks of Barbey (diocese of Bayeux). In 1191, upon a charge of conspiring with the Welsh against the King, he was forced to surrender his castles and to leave the country for three years. In April 1194 he was in England again, and witnessed a charter of Richard I, after his second Coronation at Winchester. In 1210 some of his knights served in the King's invasion of Ireland. 

Roger married Isabel, daughter of Walkelin de Ferrières, seigneur of Ferrières-Saint-Hilaire and lord of Oakham. Roger died before 19 August 1214, having, with the King's permission, resigned his lands to his son Hugh when he was taken ill, and was at buried at Wigmore. His widow Isabel married, 2ndly, Piers Fitz Herbert, of Blaen Llyfni, who died 1 June 1235. She retained her father's English lands till her death. She died before 29 April 1252, and was buried in the chapel, which she had built in the court of the Hospital of St. John of Lechlade.

Roger and Isabel are also the parents of Ralph and Isabel.

  M i Roger de MORTIMER 1st Baron Mortimer.

Walkeline de FERRERS Baron of Oakham [Parents] 1 was born 2 about 1135. Walkeline married Alice de LECHE.

Walkeline was also known as William.

Going back from Walkelin's line doesn't appear to be correct in Call's book The Royal Ancestry Bible, so I have used Cecil Stewart Filmer Ferrer's Book The Ferrer Family History and the Rev. Henry Norris' book Baddesley Clinton, Its Manor, Church and Hall With some Account of the Family of Ferrers from the Norman Conquest to the Present Day.

William, said to have been a Templar, but Glover states that he was the eldest son and denominated earl of Tutbury, and was slain in his father's lifetime.

The William Ferrers that was a Templar was the seventh Earl of Derby and husband of Sibil Marshall the daughter of William Marshall who was also a Templar..

Alice de LECHE [Parents] was born 1 about 1140. Alice married Walkeline de FERRERS Baron of Oakham.

Robert de FERRERS 1st Earl of Derby [Parents] [scrapbook] 1 was born in 1085 in Ferrieres, Saint Hilaire, Normandie, France. He died in 1139 in Staffordshire, England, United Kingdom. Robert married Hawise de VITRE 2.

Robert I de Ferrers, 1st Earl of Derby (c. 1062 – 1139) was born in Derbyshire, England, a younger son of Henry de Ferrières and his wife Bertha l'Aigle. His father, born in Ferrières, Normandy, France accompanied William the Conqueror during his invasion of England. The family was rewarded with a grant of Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire and 114 manors in Derbyshire.
Robert's elder brother William's main interests were in France. He joined Robert Curthose and was captured at Tinchebrai. His other brother Engenulf died shortly after his father and so Robert succeeded to the estates in 1088.

From the beginning, he gave great support to Henry I. As part of his tenure of Duffield Frith in 1129–30, he is on record as having interests in lead mines at Wirksworth. At about this time he granted the church of Potterspury, Northamptonshire, to Bernard the Scribe.

It is, however, during his last years that he is most in evidence as a leading supporter of King Stephen. He took a large body of Derbyshire men northwards to assist in repelling an invasion of the Scots under King David I of Scotland, nominally on the behalf of Matilda. Little actual fighting took place, but Thurstan, Archbishop of York, won the Battle of the Standard on Stephen's behalf, fought near Northallerton, on 22, August, 1138.

Robert was mainly instrumental in securing the victory for his Sovereign, who for this and other important services created him Earl of Derby, although charters and chronicles during this period refer to him interchangeably as Earl Ferrers, earl of Nottingham or earl of Derby.

He died in the following year (1139) and was succeeded in his earldom by his second but eldest surviving son Robert de Ferrers, 2nd Earl of Derby often known as Robert de Ferrars the Younger.

As with most Norman lords, the Ferrers brought their Norman underlords to England with them – in this case, the Curzon (of Kedleston), Livet (Levett) and Boscherville (Baskerville) families, who held their fiefs in Normandy from the Ferrers, and who subsequently held their English lands from Ferrers as well. (The undertenant family names derive from Notre-Dame-de-Courson, Livet-en-Ouche and Boscherville, all part of the Ferrers barony in Normandy.) These undertenant retained their ties to the Ferrers after the families had moved to England following the Norman Conquest.
