Note: Lord of Wigmore He was the son of Hugh de Mortimer and Maud le Meschine Roger de Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore. This feudal lord, like his predecessors, was in constant strife with the Welsh. He married 1st Millicent Ferrers, daughter of Robert, 4th Earl of Derby; 2nd, Isabel Ferrers, sister of Hugh of Oakham in Rutlandshire. He inherited all of Hugh's lands and by his 2nd wife had Ralph, Robert and Philip. He died in 1215 and was succeeded by his eldest son, Hugh, son of his first wife, who died 1227, and was in turn succeeded by his half brother. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 456) Roger de Mortimer (died before 8 July 1214) was a medieval marcher lord, residing at Wigmore Castle in the English county of Herefordshire. He was the son of Hugh de Mortimer (d. 26 February 1181 and Matilda Le Meschin. He was born before 1153. Roger would appear to have been of age in 1174 when he fought for King Henry II against the rebellion of his son, Henry. In 1179 Roger was instrumental in the killing of Cadwallon ap Madog, the prince of Maelienydd and Elfael, both of which Mortimer coveted. He was imprisoned until June 1182 at Winchester for this killing. He had married Isabel (d. before 29 April 1252), the daughter of Walchelin de Ferriers of Oakham Castle in Rutland before 1196. With Isabel, Roger had three sons and a daughter. In 1195 Roger, with the backing of troops sent by King Richard I invaded Maelienydd and rebuilt Cymaron Castle. In 1196 he joined forces with Hugh de Say of Richards Castle and fought and lost the battle of New Radnor against Rhys ap Gruffydd, allegedly losing some forty knights and an innumerable number of foot in the fight. By 1200 he had conquered Maelienydd and issued a new charter of rights to Cwmhir Abbey. In the summer of 1214 he became gravely ill and bought the right for his son to inherit his lands while he still lived from King John. He died before 8 July 1214.
