Biography

"Though he was not responsible for the foundation of any religious house, William, the 3rd earl, was a generous benefactor to the church, increasing the endowments of Breedon and Tutbury Priories; making grants to the Hospital of St. Lazarus, the Knights Hospitallers, and the monks of St. Denis in France; and, in this deed, extending his father's gift to Garendon Abbey — which was later doubled by his son."[1]
"Moreover I William for the love of God and for the souls of my father and mother and of all my predecessors, and for the good of my soul and that of Sybil my wife and those of our children, ..."
"... with the consent of William my son, so that they may hold it in pure and perpetual alms freely and quietly and exempt from all secular services. And I and my heirs will warrant to the aforesaid abbey and monks the aforesaid land to hold with pasture by the aforesaid liberty, as our free alms. By these witnesses : Countess Sybil, Robert de Ferrers brother of the Earl, etc., Luke, then Steward, William de Rideware, Hugh de Thornd', William Mauveisini, William, son of the earl and Henry and Robert his brothers, Jurdan de Thoc, Henry the vintner, William the clerk of Lee, with many others."

Title

3rd Lord Ferrers, of Groby [E., 1299] on 15 September 1343.[2]

Excerpt from The History of the County Derby

3. William, his son and successor, being forbidden by Henry II. to use the title of Earl of Nottingham, assumed by his father, joined the king's sons in their rebellion against him, and plundered and burned the town of Nottingham; but when he saw his castle of Tutbury closely besieged by a strong body of royalists, aided by a band of Welshmen, and the king marching against him with a second army, he thought it best to avert the approaching storm, and submitted himself to the king at Northampton. He founded a priory at Breedon, co. Leicester, about 1180, and subsequently accompanied Richard Cceur de Lion to the Holy Land, and died at the siege of Acre, in 1191, leaving, by Sibilla de Braose, his wife, four sons.[3]

Is there any source that supports Roger W. Bayley as a son of Walkelin and Catherine? Why the change in surname? Thanks.
