Orderic names Roger and Robert de Novoburgo (Neufbourg, Newburg) as the children of Henry and his wife.

He succeeded to his father's lands in Normandy and held Neubourg from the Comte de Meulan (his brother Roger).

Dugdale tells us of a charter of Robert's brother Roger, Earl of Warwick, concerning property donated to the College of St Mary in Warwick, and that it was witnessed by Robert de Novoburgo, Rogers wife Gundred, Henri and Geoffrey, their brothers, and also by Thurstan de Montfort.

The marriage settlement by Roger, Earl of Warwick, for Agnes, his daughter and Geoffrey de Clinton (formally de Tancarville), the chamberlain, was witnessed by Robert and Henry, Roger's brothers, as well as the brothers William, Maurice and Hugh de Clinton. (Round calls it "A Great Marriage Settlement").

Research notes

There is evidence supporting the existence of sons Henry and Ralph/Raoul.[1] but none found for sons Robert(see note below) or Roger. Medlands notes the parentage of Richard is not supported by a primary source. Cockayne mentions the son Henry and 'other sons' but adds that two of the other sons have been confused with their uncles[2] which is possibly the problem here.

Note: Medlands also states that Robert de Neufbourg may have been the same person as the Robert of this profile and had a son Henry who had a son Roger who was married to Matilda de Glastonia or Glastonbury and was the founder of Bindon Abbey in Dorset.
