===========================

Roger de Montgomery, seigneur of Montgomery and vicomte of the Hiesmois.

Roger was the son of Hugh de Montgomery and his wife Josceline, niece of Gunnora, Duchess of Normandy

He held the lands of Saint-Germain-de-Montgommery and Sainte-Foy-de-Montgommery, both of which show traces of early castles. ] He acquired the office of vicomté of the Heismois probably about the time Robert I became Duke in 1027. In c.?1031–1032 he witnessed a charter to the abbey of St. Wandrille by Robert I, Duke of Normandy as vicomte. Like Duke Robert, Roger began acquiring church properties, among these, c.?1025–27, half the town of Bernay. He took over a wood at 'Crispus Fagidus' which belonged to Jumièges Abbey in the 1030s He suppressed a market held by the same abbey and transferred it into his own domain. ] He later returned the market to the abbey and paid restitution for their losses

In 1035 at Robert I's death, his great uncle, Robert Archbiship of Rouen ruled Normandy as regent.[8] Roger seems to have lost favor with the young duke as well as his vicomté office as he signed an early charter of Duke William simply as Roger of Montgomery.[9] At the archbishop’s death in 1037, anarchy broke out in Normandy and among the rebels was Roger de Montgomery, formerly one of Duke Robert's closest companions, who, after being defeated in his own territory, fled to the court of Henry I of France.[10] Roger had been forced into exile by Osbern the Steward who was afterwards killed by William de Montgomery, Roger's son.[11] The date and place of Roger's death is unknown.[12] In 1068 his wife was still holding lands at Bures and Saint-Pair.

Family[edit]

The name of Roger's wife is unknown but Orderic, interpolating William of Jumièges provides the names of their five sons:[13]

  • Hugh de Montgomery[13]
  • Robert de Montgomery[13]
  • Roger II de Montgomery, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury[13]
  • William de Montgomery[13] killed during the minority of duke William[13]
  • Gilbert de Montgomery[13] who in 1063 was claimed by Orderic to have been poisoned by Mabel de Bellême[13]

Notes[edit]

a.Jump up ^ Douglas dates Roger I being vicomté of the Hiesmois to an earlier period under duke Richard II when Robert I was given the countship of Hiesmois. See David Douglas, The Earliest Norman Counts, EHR, 61-240 (1946) 146 n. 1.
