  Ancestral File Number: HNJK-HG. 

  General Notes:

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.
