___________________

  • Gilbert fitz Roger fitz Reinfried, or Gilbert the son of Roger fitzReinfrid, (died about 1220) was an Anglo-Norman feudal baron whose administrative career in England began in the time of Henry II (1154-1189), for whom his father Roger fitzReinfrid had been steward, and continued during the reigns of Richard I, King John, and Henry III.
  • Henry II married Gilbert to Hawise, the heiress of the de Lancastre family of Cumbria, grand-daughter of William de Lancaster I, who had first been under the custody of the famous knight, William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke. Her family's title to Kendal passed to Gilbert's control, and it was the Lancaster surname which was passed on to his children.
  • .... etc.
  • Gilbert died in about 1220, and was survived by his only legitimate son and heir William de Lancastre III, who married Agnes de Brus, but had no children, and also by three legitimate daughters, and one bastard son, Roger de Lancastre, who was given lordship under the king of Rydal as well as possession, under his brother and his heirs, of many other lands in Cumbria. Roger became keeper of the King's forests in northern England. After the death of William de Lancaster III, the Barony of Kendal was split into different parts, in the possession of the husbands of his sisters. There were:
    • Helwise de Lancaster, who married Peter de Brus II. They were the ancestors of the possessors of the Marquis Fee part of the Barony of Kendal, long possessed by the de Ros family, and then by the Parr family. Another branch of their descendents held the so-called Lumley fee, which evolved from the Kendale holdings of their de Thweng descendents.
    • Alice de Lancaster, who married William de Lyndesey, and was ancestor to the possessors of the Richmond Fee part of the Barony of Kendal.
    • Serota de Lancaster, who married Alan de Multon, but had no heirs.
  • Roger de Lancaster of Rydal, illegitimate son of Gilbert fitz Reinfrid, had sons, but his heir, the knight Sir John de Lancaster of Grisedale, died without an heir. Roger and John used not only the Lancaster surname, but also the same coat of arms which Gilbert fitz Reinfrid's father-in-law William de Lancaster I had used, despite the fact that their own mother was not apparently of this family.[4]
