About Sir Roger de Lancaster

Roger de Lancaster was born say 1200. He married Philippa de Bolebec, daughter of Hugh de Bolebec and Margaret de Montfichet, before 23 October 1262. Roger died before 22 February 1290/91.

    Roger was also known as [Sir] Roger de Lancaster.
    Early genealogists have claimed that the Lawrences of Ashton Hall were descendant from a Robert Lawrence or de Lancaster knighted in 1191 by Richard Coeur de Lion for distinguishing himself in the siege of Acre during the Crusades in the Holy Land.
This appears to be disproved by later researchers as stated by Schuyler Lawrence in his Lawrence Family Record Series.

The de Lancasters were barons of Kendal. Roger was the illegitimate son of Gilbert FitzReinfrid de Lancaster. As such he was not in line to inherit the Barony but he did, however, wear the same arms as his father. This line of the de Lancaster family held, at various times, the manors of Deepdale, Glencoyne, Withirslak and Knoksalcok.3
