  • Notes 
    • "On the 26th of May, 1209 [Sir Robert Bertram] fought a duel in armour at Porchester with Ralph de Clere concerning land in 'Eddeston' and 'Holm,' which Ralph had guaranteed to him and his wife Mabel; he won the contest and Ralph acknowledged William the prior of Hexham, to be the owner of these lands. [...] [Robert Bertram] married Mabel or Mabilia, who it is said married first Ralph de Clere and had a daughter and heiress, Agatha de Clere, and apparently she retained this name, possibly for reasons of dowry, but who was the Ralph de Clere who guaranteed to them the lands mentioned above? In 1214/5 Mabel de Clere rendered an account for £197 18s. 4d., for having custody, as is contained (in the preceding roll), probably her son and lands, in the treasury, 50 marks and the escheators of York had rendered £7 17s. 5d. of the issues of the land of Robert Bertram her husband and again in the same year, she rendered account for three fees and Robert Bertram had her heir in custody. She occurred in 1219/20 and 1229/30 as mother of Richard Bertram. There is nothing to show why she retained the name of Clere, but she did not remarry." [Ogle and Bothal, citation details below.]
