From Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_de_Warenne,_5th_Earl_of_Surrey

(died 1240), was the son of Hamelin de Warenne (Plantagenet) and Isabel,[1] daughter of William de Warenne, 3rd Earl of Surrey. His father Hamelin granted him the manor of Appleby, North Lincolnshire.

De Warenne was present at the coronation of King John of England on 27 May 1199. When Normandy was lost to the French in 1204 he lost his Norman holdings, (in 1202 he was lieutenant of Gascony), but John recompensed him with Grantham and Stamford.

His first tenure of office as Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports began in 1204, and lasted until 1206. He was also a Warden of the Welsh Marches between 1208 and 1213.

William was one of the few barons who remained loyal to King John (who was his cousin) during the king's difficulties with the barons, when they sought for the French prince to assume the English throne, and is listed as one of those who advised John to accede to the Magna Carta. His allegiance only faltered a few times when the king's cause looked hopeless.

In March 1217 he again demonstrated his loyalty to England by supporting the young King Henry III, he was also responsible for the establishment of Salisbury Cathedral.

Between the years 1200 and 1208, and during 1217–1226 he was to serve as the High Sheriff of Surrey. In 1214 he was again appointed Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports.

Family

He married Maud Marshal (1192 – 27 March 1248), eldest daughter and later co-heiress of William Marshal, and widow of Hugh Bigod, 3rd Earl of Norfolk,[2] thus becoming by marriage the Earl of Salisbury, on 13 October 1225. They had a son and a daughter. The son John (1231–1304) succeeded his father as earl, while the daughter, Isabel de Warenne (c. 1228–1282), married Hugh d'Aubigny, 5th Earl of Arundel.

William may also have had an earlier, childless marriage to another Matilda, daughter of William d'Aubigny, 2nd Earl of Arundel.

William may also have had an earlier, childless marriage to another Matilda, daughter of William d'Aubigny, 2nd Earl of Arundel. .William had another son, Griffin, by an unknown mother. "Earl Warren had a natural son , called Griffen de Warren whose coat armor was cheeky argent and sable, differing in nothing from his father's, but in color; and yet this implied no reflection on the father, for illegitimate children were at this time publicly owned, and frequently well provided for. From what mother this Griffin came is uncertain, but that he was son of this earl, appears from Vincent's Chesire in the Heralds office*, where is a pedigree of him, and all his descendants, with the arms of the families they matched with.
