--------------------

Roger was not really the father of Eva of Bristol, the mother-in-law of his daughter. This was a mistake I do not know how to undo.

Roger was related to Alice de Berkeley; first daughter, but not heir or co-heir, of her husband Maurice's dispossed predecessor, Roger de Berkeley, fuedal Lord of Dursley.

Roger was an adherent of King Stephen against the Empress Maud.

He was last of the original family of Berkeley, of Berkeley Castle.

He married Helen fitz Harding, daughter of Robert I "the Devout" fitz Harding, Lord of Berkeley.

Roger de Berkeley suffered much, during the wars between King Stephen and the Empress Maud, at the hands of Walter, son of Miles, Earl of Hereford in 1146. He was deprived of the Manor of Berkeley, apparently for refusing to recognize the authority of either party in the feud between the Empress Maud and King Stephen in 1152. He was soon afterward restored to the Honour of Dursley.

He was recorded as living in 1165.

3) Roger de Berkeley, living in 1165, in the 11th year of King Henry II., the last of the original family of Berkeley, of Berkeley Castle, had a son and daughter as follows:

  • 1. Robert, married Helena, daughter of Robert FitzHarding.
  • 2. Alice

(4) Alice Berkeley, heiress to Roger de Berkeley, married, at the instigation of King Henry II., Maurice, son of Robert FitzHarding, son of Harding, called Robert Lord Berkeley, and his wife, Eva, daughter of Estmond, Earl of Mercia, and his wife, Godiva, sister of William the Conqueror. One source shows the grandfather of Maurice as Eadnoth, a wealthy merchant of Bristol. Alice founded the religious house called Magdalen's, near Bristol, and was its patroness; dying in March 12, 1170-71, she was buried beside her husband, between the stalls of the Abbot and the Prior. He founded the Abbey of St. Augustine's in Bristol, and dying, February 5, 1170-71 (one source has the death as June 11, 1190), was buried in the quire thereof. He is supposed to have been a canon in the Abbey. This Robert FitzHarding was conferred, for his attachment to the Empress Maud, the lordship of Berkeley and Berkeley-Hernesse, the confiscated possessions of the above Roger de Berkeley, the adherent to King Stephen; but, to reconcile the parties, King Henry, who had restored to Roger his manor and castle of Dursley, caused an agreement to be concluded between them that the heiress of the ousted lord should be given in marriage to the heir of the new baron; and thus passed the feudal castle of Berkeley to another chief, Maurice, who assumed the surname of Berkeley and became the feudal lord of Berkeley upon the death of his brother, Henry. He was the first of his family to dwell in the Berkeley Castle. He fortified the castle and founded two hospitals, one at Lowring between Berkeley and Dursley, and that at Longbridge to the north of Berkeley, dedicated to the Holy Trinity. He was born in 1120. Maurice died on June 16, 1189, and was succeeded by his eldest son, Robert. (Ref: The Ligon Family). Alice and Maurice had six sons and one daughter as follows:

Robert, who, in the turbulent times of King John, forfeited his castle and lands by his participation in the rebellious proceedings of the barons, but upon submission, and paying the king a fine of 1,000 pounds had livery of his lands, and had all restored except the castle and town of Berkeley, in the 1st year of King Henry III. Robert married (1) Julianna, daughter of William de Pontlarch and niece to the great Earl of Pembroke, Earl Marshal of England and afterwards Protector of King Henry III.; (2) Luci, who afterwards married Hugh de Gournay. He died May 13, 1219, without issue from either marriage, and was succeeded by his brother, Thomas. 2. Thomas, mentioned below 3. Maurice, married and had Thomas; d.s.p. 4. William. No details known. 5. Henry, with his brother, Richard, accompanied William, King of Scotland, into that country when he returned from being a prisoner in England, became the ancestors of many eminent families in Scotland, France, and Ireland. 6. Richard 7. an only daughter, married Osbert Gifford; and dying, according to the Abbot Newland, in the year 1190, was interred in the church of Brentford, co. Middlesex in the building of which he (Gifford) had been a great benefactor

Thomas de Berkeley was born in 1170. In the 8th year of Henry III. (1223-24), upon giving his two nephews as pledges for his fidelity, he had restitution of Berkeley Castle in 1223. He married, circa 1217, Joan, daughter of Ralph de Somery, Lord of Campden, co., Gloucester, and niece of William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke. Thomas died on November 29, 1243, aged seventy-three, and was buried in the south aisle of St. Augustine's abbey. Thomas was succeeded by his eldest son, Maurice. He and his wife left six sons and one daughter as follows: ....

He completed the building of Berkeley Castle, and evidently suffered much at the hands of Walter, son of Miles, Earl of Hereford, during the wars between Stephen and the Empress Maud. He was deprived of the manor of Berkeley and other holdings about 1152, evidently because he refused to recognize the authority of either party. While the honour of Dursley was restored to him shortly thereafter, Berkeley Castle and the honours thereof were granted by the King to Robert Fitz Harding. -------------------- Roger III de Berkeley died after 1177.
