    HOLDERS of the CASTLE of BERKELEY (I)

    Roger, styled "Senior," who, having, between 1068 and 1071, been made Provost of the manor of Berkeley by Earl William Fitz Osbern (to whom it had been granted at the Conquest), took the name Of DE BERKELEY from his residence there, and was confirmed in his office by the King about 1080. At the time of the Survey 1086, Berkeley was farmed by him from the Crown. He was tenant in capite of Dursley, Cubberley, Dodington, &c., and (not improbably) was identical with " Roger," farmer of Barton Regis, Bristol. On 17 January 1091 he became a Monk of St. Peter's, Gloucester, and died 1093. [Complete Peerage II:123-4, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
