  • Note:
    PIERS DE ROS, a feudal Baron whose parentage is unknown, probably derived his name from Ros in Holderness, Yorks (East Riding). He was steward (dapifer) of the Count of Aumale, lord of Holderness. He gave 2 carucates of land in Gilling, near Helmsley, and the church to St. Mary's Abbey, York.

    He married Adeline, youngest of the 3 sisters and coheirs of Walter ESPEC, LORD OF HELMSLEY, &c., Yorks, and of Wark, Northumberland, founder of 3 monasteries---Kirkham (1122) and Rievaulx (1131) in Yorks, and Wardon, Beds (1135). Piers predeceased Walter Espec and was presumably dead in 1130. His widow also died before her brother. [Complete Peerage XI:90, transcribed by Dave Utzinger]

Adeline, one of the sisters and co-heirs of the famous Walter Espec, Lord of the manor of Helmesley, called sometimes Helmeslac, but oftener Hamlake, in the north riding of Yorkshire, and was s. at his decease by his son, Robert de Ros.
