Was married to Agnes de Berwick, the daughter of Gilbert de Berwick of East Winterslow, Berwick, Wiltshire. He was possibly 29 years or more, when he inherited the Lordship of the Manor of Bromham Roche and was Sheriff of Wiltshire in 1333. When he died in 1375, the Manor was passed onto his 35 year old son and heir, Sir John de la Roche.
Bromham is a village of great antiquity and originally consisted of two Manors, and for ease of identification they have been known throughout history as BROMHAM ROCHES and BROMHAM BATTLE.
Besides this ecclesiastical manor of Bromham Battle, there was also a lay manor, called Roches manor, which took its name from the family of de la Roche who held land in Bromham as early as the 13th century. From two co-heiresses of Sir John de la Roche, who died in 1401, the Manor of Roche came successively into the families of de Beauchamp and Bayntun. The de Beauchamp family were the descendants of the elder co-heiress of John de la Roche and the Bayntun family were heirs of the younger co-heiress and inherited the Manor of Bromham Roches.
From 1272 the Roche family were under tenants.
In 9 Edward I, a Gilbert de Roche was of Bromham.
