    "Robert de Ros, who bore the unexplained nickname of Furfan or Furson, s. and h., a minor, was in ward to the King in 1185, when his lands were in the custody of Ranulf de Glanville. He had livery of the lands in 1190. In Normandy he was bailiff of the royal castellany of Bonneville sur Toques. As son-in-law of William the Lion, King of Scotland, he was of his escort into England, Nov. 1200, to do homage, and again in 1209. He appears to have obeyed the summons to muster at Porchester for an expedition to Normandy, May 1205. In Feb. 1205/6 he proposed to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. He was serving with the King in Ireland in 1210. In 1212 he had taken, or was believed to have taken, the 'habit of religion,' but in the following year was certainly in the King's employment. Sheriff of Cumberland, 1213-15. One of the 12 Barons named as guarantors in John's letters to the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the bishops with him, overseas, May and June 1213, on the lifting of the excommunication. In Nov. 1214 he was joint commissioner to preside at the doing of homage to William (de Forz), Count of Aumale. Although he had been so closely associated with the King, he was one of his most vigorous opponents in the matter of Magna Carta, and of the 25 elected to see that its provisions were observed; and Robert and his son were included in the Bull of excommunication, Jan. 1215/6. In Nov. 1217 he had returned to his allegiance, and was one of the escort of Alexander II to England; in 1218, and later, the Cumberland estates were confirmed to him. In 1221 he was one of the barons called upon for help in the siege of Skipsea Castle. He was one of the assessors of an Aid in Feb. 1224/5, and witnessed at Westminster the confirmation of Magna Carta and the Forest charter.
