(Wikipedia) Roger de Clare, 3rd Earl of Hertford, also bore the title of Earl of Clare, but Hornby observes that this meant only Earl at Clare, for his Earldom was certainly at Hertford. In 3rd of Henry II this nobleman, having obtained permission from the King to own all the lands in Wales that he could win, marched into Caerdigan and captured and fortified the castles there. This Earl, who, from his munificence to the church and his numerous acts of piety, was called the "Good Earl of Hertford," died in 1173, having had issue by his wife Maud, daughter of James de St. Hillary.

(Fenwick Allied Ancestry, page 115) He was the Earl of Hertford. ---------------------- Roger de Clare, 3rd Earl of Hertford, is likewise said to have born the title of Earl of Clare. In the 3rd Henry II, this nobleman obtaining from the king all the lands in Wales which he could win, marched into Cardigan with a great army and fortified divers castles thereabouts. In the 9th of the same reign, we find him summoned by the celebrated Thomas-a-Becket, archbishop of Caterbury, to Westminster, in order to do homage to the prelate for his castle of Tonebruge; which at the command of the king he refused, alleging that holding it by military service it belonged rather to the crown than to the church.
