[WARK451] Roger FitzRichard (born c.1132, son of [EUST392] Richard FitzEustace, see FITZEUSTACE). Roger was granted Warkworth Manor (Northumbs) by King Henry II (c.1157-64), and thereby became 1st feudal Lord of Warkworth. He married [ESSE383] Alianor/Adeliza (daughter of Henry Essex of Rayleigh, see RAYLEIGH FEUDAL LORDSHIP). [The suggestion that Roger married Alice de Vere was refuted by J. H. Round in Essex Archaeological Society Transactions.] Roger died 1177-78.
