61 Third son of Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Shrewsbury, by Mabel, heiress of Alençon. His sister, Matilda, was the wife of Robert, Count of Mortain, the tenant in capite (see vol. xiii., page 507). He acquired the name of "the Poictevin" by his marriage with Almodis, only laughter of Adelbert III., Count of La Marche (a province separating Poictou and Berri), and sole heiress of her brother, Count Boson III., who was killed in

1091, when he became Roger, Count of La Marche, in right of his wife.

In the early days of the Conquest, Roger the Poictevin had possessed all the land between the Ribble and the Mersey, and extensive estates in various other counties in England had beeu granted to him; but, at the date of the Survey, he only retained those in Essex, Lincolnshire and Suffolk. Clitheroe, in Lancashire, appears to have been the caput of his honour, and here a castle was built before the date of the Survey Amounderness (containing more thau 60 vills), of which Preston was the capital, had belonged to him (see vol. xiii., page 351).

In 1091, as “Rogerus comes Pictavensis," he gave for his own soul, and the souls of Roger of Shrewsbury, his father, Countess Mabel, his mother, and his brethren, to St. Martin's abbey at Sees, in Normandy, the church of St. Mary, at Lancaster; with lands, &r. To the

abbey of St. Peter, at Shrewsbury, founded by his father, he gave other lands in Lancashire.

In 1101, he joined in the rebellion of his eldest brother, Robert de Belesme, Count of Alençon, and thus forfeited all his honours and estates. Being banished from England, he retired to his castle of Charroux, near Civray, which he possessed in right of his wife, Almodis. She died in 1116. By her, Roger (who was living in 1123) had three sons:Count Aldebert IV., Eudo and Count Boson IV., and three daughters, Ponce, wife of "Taillefer" II., Count of Angoulesme, Marquise, wife of Guy IV.,

Viscount of Limoges, and Sybil, who witnessed her father's charter to St. Martin's abbey. Adeline of Lancaster, wife of William Peveril of Nottingham, may, Mr. Planché suggests, bave been another daughter of Roger.

With a few exceptions, the estates of Roger the Poictevin in England were given by Henry I. to Count Stephen, his nephew, who, when King, granted nearly the whole of them to Rannulph, Farl of Chester. Robert de Rumeli and Alan de Perci appear to have acquired the lands of his fief in Craven.

67 Mr. Ellis (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, iv., 406) says :-“ There is no reason to doubt that Robert de Bruis came from Bruis, now Brix, near Valognes, and he himself was probably lord of that place; his grandson, Adam de Bruis, appears to have beeu 80.When he died is not recorded."

His son and heir, Robert de Bruis, was one of the chiefs of the English who fought against the Scots in the battle of

the Standard, 24th Aug., 1138. He founded a priory at Guisbrough, and was a benefactor to the abbeys at York and Whitby. By Agnes, daughter of Ralph Paganel (the tenant in cupite), he had a son, Adam de Bruis, of Skelton, who married Ivetta, daughter of Wm. de Arches, sun and heir of Osbern de Arches (the tenant in capite). By an. other wife, the heiress of Annandale, in Scotland, it is said, he was father of Robert, ancestor of Robert “the Bruce, of Bannockburn,” King of Scotland.
