About Roger I de Mowbray (d'Aubigny), of Masham

Roger DE MOWBRAY

Note from Curator: Through a circuitous route of inheritances, Roger (born d'Aubigny) became a Mowbray by name though not by blood. His father's first wife (Matilda de l'Aigle) had previously been married to Robert de Mowbray but the marriage was annulled after Robert de Mowbray was imprisoned for his role in a royal rebellion, for which he forfeited his estates. Pope Paschal II granted Mowbray's wife, Matilda, an annulment of their marriage and she subsequently married Nigel d'Aubigny, to whom was granted the forfeited lands in Montbray. The couple remained childless, and in 1118 d’Aubigny divorced Matilda and married Gundred de Gournay, who were parents of Roger. Thus, Roger inherited the estates originally forfeited by Robert Mowbray, and Roger changed his name to Mowbray at the instruction of Henry I.
