Richard's wife Maud was also descended from two Sureties, Lacy and Quincy, so their sons Gilbert and Thomas and daughter Rose inherited four Magna Carta descents and passed them on as a group to large numbers of descendants, including a majority of Colonial Gateways.
Many early descendants married the descendants of other Sureties, especially those of Hugh le Bigod's daughter Isabel.
Later descendants married each other, so that their further descendants inherited the same cluster of ancestors multiple times.
In April 1248. Richard de Clare, earl of Gloucester, Thomas de Bello Campo, Walter de Scoteny, Roger de Clifford, William de Clare and Nicholas de Leuekenor, received a letter of protection with clause rolumus, until a fortnight after Midsummer, to go on a pilgrimage beyond seas.

It also says: "His lordship in 1124 removed the monks out of his castle at Clare into the church of St. Augustine at Stoke, and bestowed upon them a little wood, called Stoke-Ho, with a doe every year out of his part at Hunedene."
No mention that he (Richard Clare-12) was born at Clare Castle though.
So not only wasn't this Richard born at Clare Castle, it doesn't look like any of the Clares were.

This Richard's father, Gilbert, was "Earl of Gloucester and Hertford" - he wasn't born at Clare Castle either, which the website says is in Suffolk. It also says:
That Richard is apparently Clare-15, whose profile says he "built castles at Tonbridge (Kent), Clare (Suffolk), Bletchingley (Surrey) and Hanley (Worcester)."
