  • Notes 
    • From Roger fitz Reinfrid: His Family and Connections by John Watson:

      Roger fitz Reinfrid is said to have been a protégé of Richard de Lucy and may have entered his service in the 1160s. He was probably in royal service before Michaelmas 1169. He was employed from 1170 to 1174 with Richard de Lucy in the administration of Windsor. In July 1175, Henry II confirmed to Roger fitz Reinfrid a soke in London given to him by Earl Simon (de St. Liz, III) of Huntingdon. A case in the Curia Regis in 1204 shows that Roger exchanged land in Toft and Menthorpe, Lincolnshire with Earl Simon and Alice de Gant his wife in exchange for three parts of a knight’s fee in Sutton and Beckingham, Lincolnshire and that Roger also held land in Holme, Lincolnshire granted to him by Robert de Gant.

      Roger was sheriff of Sussex from Michaelmas 1176 to March 1187 and sheriff of Berkshire in 1188. In January 1176, he was appointed as a justice itinerant in Kent, Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex, Oxfordshire and Berkshire. By 1181, he was one of the regular justices sitting at Westminster. In March 1182, he was one of the witnesses to the will of Henry II, together with his brother Walter de Coutances, archdeacon of Oxford. He continued to be a justice in eyre throughout the reign of Henry II and into the reign of Richard I. Roger died before Michaelmas 1196 when Reinfrid son of Roger occurs as his father’s heir.
