    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.

    Unusual in having been, in his lifetime, a member of Parliament both as a "knight of the shire" (chosen by local authorities) and also through being summoned to Parliament by writ.

    Bartholomew de Badlesmere and Margaret de Clare were great-great grandparents of Henry V.

    "He was appointed one of the peers to regulate the royal household in 1310. [...] In Feb. 1316 he was sent to suppress the rebellion of Llewelyn, Prince of Wales. He was one of those appointed as amabassador to Amadeus of Savoy in Dec. 1316. He was appointed ambassador to the Pope in Jan. 1317. In 1319 he and Hugh Despenser the younger were appointed to reform the state of the Duchy of Aquitaine, and to remove all officers there as were unable to fulfill their duties. [...] In March 1320 he was appointed ambassador to the King of France and to the Pope. In Jan. 1321 he was among those who were sent to treat for peace with Robert de Brus, King of Scots. [...] In 1321 he joined the rebellion of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster. In October 1321, while residing at Leeds Castle with her children, his wife, Margaret, refused Queen Isabel admission to the castle. The castle was immediately taken by the king. His wife, Margaret, and their son, Giles, were taken prisoners and conveyed to the Tower of London. A writ was issued to the Sheriff of Gloucestershire to arrest him 26 Dec. 1321. He and other rebellious barons attacked and burned the town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire. SIR BARTHOLOMEW DE BADLESMERE, 1st Lord Badlesmere, fought on the rebel side of the Battle of Boroughbridge 16 March 1322. He was subsequently captured at Stow Park, attainted, and hanged as a traitor at Canterbury, Kent 14 April 1322." [Royal Ancestry]

    "Bartholomew of Badlesmere. of Badlesmere and Chilham Castle, Kent, s. and h. of Guncelin or Gunselm B., of Badlesmere afsd., Justice of Chester, was excused from service in the war in Gascony (1294) 22 Edw.

(1309) 3 Edw. II, to 15 May (1321) 14 Edw. II, was sum. to Parl. by writs directed Bartholomeo de Badlesmere whereby he may be held to have become Lord Badlesmere. He obtained a grant of the Castle of Leeds in Kent, and in (1314-15) 8 Edw. II, was made Governor of Skipton Castle, and of all the castles in Yorkshire and Westmorland whereof Robert de Clifford had d. seized. He was also Steward of the King's Household. Notwithstanding the many favours he had received, he joined the Earl of Lancaster in his rebellion, and was defeated with him at Boroughbridge, 16 Mar. 1322, captured at Stow Park, attainted, and hung as a traitor at Canterbury, 14 Apr. 1322. He is described in the contemporary Boroughbridge Roll as a Banneret.

He d. as afsd, 1322. His widow, notorious for having refused the Queen admission to the Royal Castle of Leeds in the summer of 1321, was besieged therein by Edward II, and being captured with the Castle on 1 1 Nov. following, was imprisoned in the Tower of London, but was released 3 Nov. 1322, and after staying some time at the Minorites without Aldgate, at the King's charge (2s. a day), had leave to go to her friends, 1 July 1324. She, who was aged 40 in Mar. 1326/7, had dower on lands at Castlecombe, Wilts, &c., and d. late in 1333." [Complete Peerage I:371-72, as corrected by Volume XIV.]

She subsequently retired to the convent house of the Minorite Sisters without Aldgate, and had two shillings per day allowed for her maintenance. In 1327 she petitioned the king and council, stating that while she was in the king's prison, Robert de Welles, husband of her younger sister, Maud de Clare, with the aid and maintenance of Hugh de Despenser, had the lands of their Clare inheritance assessed, and took Maud's share, both in England and Ireland; Margaret requested that the division be made again, according to the assessments returned in Chancery, and that she might have her choice of her share, as she is the elder sister, which request was granted."

    Notes:

    Or Gunselm. Justice of Chester and Cheshire, 16 Oct 1274 to 1281. Custodian of Chester Castle.

    His wife is frequently given as Joan Fitzbernard, daughter of Ralph Fitzbernard of Kingsdown, Kent, probably due to the statement to that effect in CP I, p. 372. However, CP V (p. 403, note b) states "Nor is anything known about the wife of Guncelin, father of Bartholomew de Badelesmere." CP XIV, p. 57, correcting volume I, notes the latter passage.

    "He joined his brother, Gilbert, against King Henry III and was knighted by Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester, before the Battle of Lewes 14 May 1264. He subsequently deserted the baronial cause with his brother, Earl Gilbert. In May 1265 Thomas arranged the gift of a speedy horse to Prince Edward, by means of which Prince Edward escaped from Simon de Montfort at Hereford. Thomas fought for the king at the Battle of Evesham 4 August 1265. In 1267 he took the cross at St. Paul's, London, being moved by the preaching of the papal legate, Ottobuono. [...] He went on crusade to the Holy Land with Prince Edward in 1271, and returned in 1272." [Royal Ancestry]

    This Thomas de Clare was identified in early volumes of the Complete Peerage as a son of Sir Richard de Clare d. 1262, and then removed in volume 14 in the articles on Badlesmere and Clare. Despite this, it appears to be correct; Chris Phillips lays out the details here.
