Biography

William (Ros) de Roos was a member of aristocracy in the British Isles.
  • He inherited the one third barony of Helsingore from his father's mother, but when his two great aunts (her sisters) died without issue, he inherited the whole barony.
  • He inherited the barony of Helmsley from his father's father, who had it from his mother.

Birth and Parentage

William de Ros was the son of Robert de Ros, one of the Magna Carta Surety Barons, and Isabella of Scotland, illegitimate daughter of William the Lion, King of Scotland.[1][2][3]

William was born before 1200.[2] He was old enough In 1215 to participate, with his father, in the baronial rebellion against King John.[1][2]

Life

In December 1215 he and his father were excommunicated by Pope Innocent III on 16 Dec 1215, for rebellion against King John.[1][2]

On 20 May 1217 he was among the rebels captured in the Battle of Lincoln, but secured his release on 26 Oct 1217.[1][2] He paid 20 marks for his freedom.[3]

He fought in Brittany in 1230, Gascony in 1242 and Wales in 1258.[1][2]

In 1237 he was one of the barons who escorted Alexander II, King of Scotland to a meeting with Henry III at York which led to a treaty establishing an agreed boundary between Scotland and England.[3]

In 1252 he went on pilgrimage to Santiago da Compostella in Spain.[1][2][3]

Marriage and Children

William married Lucy FitzPiers, daughter of Piers (Peter) FitzHerbert, Sheriff of Yorkshire, Keeper of Pickering Castle and Alice FitzRoger, before 24 January 1234.[1] William and Lucy had six sons and two daughters[1][2]:

Death

Sir William de Roos died in 1257/8 or 1264.[2] He was buried at Kirkham Abbey, Yorkshire.[1][2][3]

Research Notes

Possible Daughter Anne

One source raises just a possibility of a daughter Anne not listed elsewhere. The Visitations of the County of Nottingham include a Sutton pedigree which shows "Serius Lord Sutton of Sutton in Holdernese 3d of that name" married to "Anne d. of Willm. Lord Rosse."[4] No dates are given, and the Visitation pedigree conflicts with another Sutton pedigree in Charles Frost's "Notices relative to the early history of the town and port of Hull". This does not show any Serius (or Saerus) Sutton married to a daughter of William Rosse.[5]

Dorothea

Another daughter, Dorothea, has formerly been attached to William de Ros, with no indication of the mother. She is not listed in Douglas Richardson. As of 9 June 2019, her profile was orphaned and the only sources on it are an imported GEDCOM and Ancestry family trees. She has now been detached.

I have now detached Anne as daughter with research notes added to appropriate profiles.

Thanks, Liz. Before I do that, I will ask a question in G2G to see if anyone has stronger evidence to hand.

As this profile is in a badged trail, managed by the Magna Carta Project, I think that Anne should probably be detached, based on the project's guidelines here.

Cheers, Liz

As a holding operation, I have added a research note on the suggestion that there was a further daughter, Anne. The evidence for her existence as a daughter of the William of this profile looks fairly thin to me, and I have suggested on her profile that her relationship to William and Lucy FitzPiers be marked as uncertain. Arguably, Anne should be detached unless stronger evidence emerges.

In a series of edits I have added more sourcing, replaced quotes from books with factual info in the main bio, added links to profiles of children, and made a number of other editorial changes.

Verified this profile as being on a project-approved trail (from Corbin-100 to Ros-162, following "Magna Carta badged" profiles to that surety baron). The project account for the Magna Carta Project will be added as a manager later this month to meet WikiTree guidelines (see Help:Project-Managed_Profiles). Give me a holler if you have any questions. ~ Liz, Magna Carta project member
