About Roger de Montalt

Roger de Montalt, Lord of Montalt

Son of Robert II de Montalt, Lord of Montalt (grandson, through Robert I de Montalt, of Ralph de la Mare, "one of the barons of Hugh, Earl of Chester, and son of Norman de la Mare, ancestor of the great family de la Mare. Robert assumed the surname Montalt from his chief place of residence, an elevation in the county of Flint, where he erected a castle. He was steward to the Earl of Chester and also one of his barons. After the death of Ranulph de Gernons, Earl of Chester, the lands of that great earldom were, it appears, for some time in the king’s hands, for in the 6th year of Henry II, Robert de Montalt was one of those, who accounted in the king’s exchequer for the farm of them; and likewise for what was then expended, in building the Castle of Chester. Robert is the ancestor of the Montalt family, which includes the English Maudes and the Scottish Mowats." []

Roger de Montalt "was deemed one of the greatest feudal barons in the realm during the reign of Henry III, and accompanied Prince Edward to the Holy Land. Roger was constantly employed against the Welsh, and in the 44th year of Henry III, he had command to repair to the borders, with the other Baron-Marchers, and there to reside for the defence of the country. He died in 1260. Note that there seems to be a generation or two missing between Roger and his supposed father Robert. He married Cecilia, 2nd sister and one of the co-heirs of Hugh de Albini, Earl of Arundel." []
