Roger was born before 1200; he was of age on 25 January 1221 when he paid a fine of 100 marks to King Henry III to receive his inheritance from his father.
He was the son of Sir William de Huntingfield of Huntingfield, Suffolk, who was a Surety Baron for the Magna Carta. William's mother was the wife of Sir William, Isabel de Gressenhall, the daughter of William FitzWalter de Gressenhall and the widow of both Berenger de Cressy and Osmund de Stuteville.
Roger married a woman named Lucy, who died without issue. He then married Joan Hobrugge, the daughter and co-heiress of William de Howbridge of Howbridge, Essex. Roger and Joan had three sons and a daughter:
As heir to her father, Joan received the manor of Howbridge, which remained in the Huntingfield family for at least the next five generations.
Roger purchased Huntingfeld Hall in Norfolk from John de Lacey, the Earl of Lincoln, in 1230.
On 24 December 1240, King Henry III issued a decree stating that Roger and his wife, Joan, were to pay two marks for not responding to a summons to the court of the Earl of Hereford during the Octaves of St. Hilary.
In 1242, Roger paid a fine of 200 marks so that he could avoid military service in Gascony. However, he did not completely ignore the king's needs:
"It being represented to King Henry III. in his 39th year, that Roger de Huntingfield had sent to his assistance in Gascoign, And. de Gayzi, his knight, who had performed laudable service, the sheriff of Suffolk had an order that the demand of 60 marks due from him to the King should be excused." 
On 14 April 1253, King Henry III granted to Roger and his heirs:
"free warren in all the demesne lands which he holds at present in Norfolk, Suffolk, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire, provided that they are not within the king's forests ; grant also of a weekly market on Thursday at his manor of Petrestre, co. Suffolk, and of a yearly fair there on the vigil and the feast of SS. Peter and Paul and the two days following."
Sir Roger de Huntingfield died on 19 June 1257. An Inquisition Post Mortem was initiated the following 10 July that listed his holdings in the counties of Lincolnshire and Suffolk. His son, William was specified as his heir.
