- Buried at Brackley, Aberdeenshire, Scotland,  before12 June 1250 [date of Roger's second marriage].
Helen (also known as Ela or Elena) had two half-sisters and co-heiresses, Devorguilla (or 'Derborgaill', mother of King John of Scotland), and Christina (or 'Cairistiona'). Helen, eldest daughter and co-heiress of Alan, Lord of Galloway. Countess of Winchester. Without legitimate sons to succeed him, Alan's lands and dignities were divided between the husbands of his three daughters, so Roger acquired Alan's position as Constable of Scotland, and one-third of the lordship of Galloway (although the actual title of Lord of Galloway went through Helen's half-sister Devorguilla to her husband John I de Balliol).
The three daughters of Roger and Helen of Galloway were:
Helen (also known as Ela or Elena), who married Alan Baron Zouche of Ashby;
Elizabeth (also known as Isabella) married Alexander Comyn, 2nd Earl of Buchan;
Margaret married William de Ferrers, 5th Earl of Derby (and was thus stepmother to her own stepmother).
