Dear Jim, Ian, and John ~ I re-checked Hedley again today. He cites a Northumberland plea dated 1241 which states that marriages have been pre-arranged and "now have been made" between the eldest sons and heirs of Roger Bertram and Robert de Roos and their respective daughters.

Hedley proves Christine did not marry Robert de Roos (died 1269), of Wark, but, rather his son and heir, William de Roos, who died in his father's lifetime. This corrects Complete Peerage under both Bertram and Roos.

Vickers alleges that Christine's older son, William de Roos, left two daughters and co-heiresses, one who married an Archer and one who married a Wetewange. The Archer and Wetewange families were evidently William de Roos' successors to his properties. However, if true, the daughters should have been named Christine's heirs in 1312 when Christine's niece, Agnes Bertram, died, rather than their supposed uncle, Ely Penbury.
