Rosie Bevan wrote: That William de Ros of Helmsley was married to Lucy fitz Piers identified, ( CP (XI : 94) as you say, citing Dugdale), as daughter of Piers fitz Herbert, lord of Brecknock, would appeare to be borne out by the names of their children - Robert, William, Alexander, Herbert, John, Piers, Lucy and Alice, as listed in CP XI p. 94 note (l) and supported by about ten references.

III._William, third Earl of Ross. William, son and heir of Ferquhard, Earl of Ross, is one of the witnesses to the charter granted by Earl Ferquhard to Walter de Moravia. He is also one of the witnesses to an agreement between Andrew, Bishop of Moray, and Gilbert, son of the Earl of Strathen, dated Anno gratie 1232, pridie Idus Septembris. He confirmed all his father's grants and donations to the abbey of Fearn in 1258, and made donations to the religious in Moray by deeds witnessed by Robert, Bishop of Ross, who died in 1270. He was Justiciary of Scotland north of the Forth, as appears by a precept from him to David Wemys, Sheriff of Fife, 7th October, Anno Regni Alexandri II. vicesimo quinto, A.D. 1239, commanding David Wemys to pay the eighth part of the amercements of Fife imposed in the Justice Aire of Cupar, to the Abbot of Dunfermline, according to his rights. In the time of Archibald, Bishop of Moray, who was consecrated in 1253, and died 5th December 1298, it seems that William, Earl of Ross, had done some injury to the church of Pettie, and to the prebendary of Brachlie, for the reparation of which he gave the lands of Catboll in Ross, and other lands, to the Bishop and canons of Moray. William, Earl of Ross, was one of the Scottish nobles who entered into an agreement with Llewellyn, Prince of Wales, that the Scotch and Welsh should not make peace with England without the mutual consent of both - 8th March 1258. He was also one of the nobles who signed the obligation which Alexander III. obtained from his chief nobility to receive as Queen of Scotland his granddaughter Margaret, the Maiden of Norway, and the issue of her body - dated at Scone, 5th February 1288, and signed by
