  • Notes 
    • Also called Richard Scrupe, Richard Fitz Scrub. "Richard Scrob (fl. 1052–1066), soldier and landowner, was a Frenchman of unknown origins (not for certain a Norman) who came to England in the early years of the reign of Edward the Confessor (r. 1042–66) and was given land on the Welsh border. The twelfth-century chronicler John of Worcester mistook his additional or alternative name Scrob for a patronymic, and Richard has ever since been widely miscalled Richard fitz Scrob." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

      He built the earthwork called Richard's Castle, one of the few pre-Conquest castles in England.
