About Sir Rohand (ou Roalt) de Warwick, Earl of Warwick
FROM BURKE'S COMMONERS:
This family boasts of Saxon blood, and claims distinction for a full century at least before the conquest.
ROHAND, the first of the Saxon Earls of Warwick, temp. ALFRED, the Great, left an only daughter and heiress, FELICIA, who espoused GUY, son of Siward Lord of Wallingford, and conveying the earldom to her husband he became Guy, EARL OF WARWICK, " the memory of whom, (saith Dugdale) for his great valour, hath ever since been, and yet is so famous, that the vulgar are of opinion that he was a man of more than ordinary stature, and the Welsh, taking notice of his brave exploits will needs have him to be descended from British parentage." The achievements of this chivalrous earl, true or fabulous, are so generally known, that it is almost unneccessary to refer to Dugdale's Warwickshire in which they are fully set forth.
