    From Wikipedia:

    Roger Mortimer, 3rd Baron Mortimer, 1st Earl of March (25 April 1287 - 29 November 1330), was an English nobleman and powerful Marcher lord who gained many estates in the Welsh Marches and Ireland following his advantageous marriage to the wealthy heiress Joan de Geneville, 2nd Baroness Geneville. In November 1316, he was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1322 for having led the Marcher lords in a revolt against King Edward II in what became known as the Despenser War. He later escaped to France, where he was joined by Edward's queen consort Isabella, whom he took as his mistress. After he and Isabella led a successful invasion and rebellion, Edward was subsequently deposed; Mortimer allegedly arranged his murder at Berkeley Castle. For three years, Mortimer was de facto ruler of England before being himself overthrown by Edward's eldest son, Edward III. Accused of assuming royal power and other crimes, Mortimer was executed by hanging at Tyburn.

    • Alternate death: 1289

    Notes:

    In this 2010 post to SGM, Douglas Richardson notes that most historical reference works before 1900 placed this Eudes la Zouche a generation later, as a younger son of Alan la Zouche and his wife Ellen de Quincy. Richardson further notes that some descendants of this Eudes la Zouche included Quincy arms among their quarterings, presumably because they believed themselves to be descended from Ellen. But Complete Peerage volume 12 (2) (1959) places Eudes as a younger brother, not a son, of Alan la Zouche, like him a son of Sir Roger la Zouche and his wife Margaret. Citing a 1262 Patent Rolls entry that refers to "Eudo la Zouche, brother of the said Alan," and noting that the record shows Eudes to have been continually active from 1251 to 1279, Richardson goes on to argue that Complete Peerage was in fact correct.

    Note also that the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography ("Zouche [de la Zouche] family, magnates") agrees with this placement of Eudes la Zouche.

    "As a younger son Eudo sought advancement through royal service, which he had already entered before 1254 when he escorted Queen Eleanor to join Henry III in Gascony. He associated with the Lord Edward in the late 1250s when he acted as witness to the prince's charters. Furthermore, during disturbances in the Welsh marches in 1262 he was entrusted with the defence of Edward's castles in Cheshire. Eudo's continuing support for the royal cause in the barons' war is suggested by his summons in arms to the king at Windsor in 1263. Royal service notwithstanding it was Eudo's marriage in 1268 to Millicent (d. 1299), widow of John de Montalt and sister and coheir of Sir George de Cantilupe (1251–1273), which established the family's landed fortune." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Regarding the date of his marriage to Millicent de Cantelow, Patricia Junkin says here that he "was married to Millicent Cantilupo by 1262 when he is given livery of her lands, including Baseford."

    In a post to SGM on 22 Feb 2017, Douglas Richardson notes that "Eudes la Zouche and his brother, Henry la Zouche, served as manucaptors (or sureties) for their niece, Joyce, daughter and heiress of William la Zouche, in 1272-3. Reference: LTR Memoranda Rolls, E368no46, image 2128 (available at http://aalt.law.uh.edu/E1/E368no46/IMG_2128.htm). For evidence that Henry la Zouche was the brother of William la Zouche, see Jenkinson & Formoy, Select Cases in the Exchequer of Pleas (Selden Soc. 48) (1932): 80–81."

    This couple were ancestors of President Rutherford B. Hayes.
