Note: [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [rexmclrn.ged] "Roger de Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore, like his predecessors, was in constant strife with the Welsh. At one time he sustained a great defeat in conjunction with Hugh de Say, but in the end he was victorious, and took twelve of their principal leaders in one battle. He also enlarged considerably his territories, and drove thieves and robbers from those parts. Being at one time present at the solemn anniversary of his father, he confirmed all his grants to the canons of Wigmore; adding, of his won gift, a spacious and fruitful pasture, lying adjacent to the abbey, called the Treasure of Mortimer. Upon which occasion his steward remonstrating him for parting with so valuable a treasure, re replied, "I have laid up my treasure in that field, where thieves cannot steal or dig, or moth corrupt." This Roger married (1) Millicent Ferrers, daughter of Robert Ferrers, Earl of Derby."
