<Roger de Quincy, 2nd Earl of Winchester (1195? - April 25, 1265) wasa medieval nobleman who was prominent on both sides of theAnglo-Scottish border, as Earl of Winchester and Constable ofScotland.
He was the second son of Saer de Quincy, 1st Earl of Winchester, andMargaret de Beaumont.
He probably joined his father on the Fifth Crusade in 1219, where theelder de Quincy fell sick and died. His elder brother having died afew years earlier, Roger thus inherited his father's titles andproperties. However, he did not take possession of his father's landsuntil February 1221, probably because he did not return to Englandfrom the crusade until then. He did not formally become earl untilafter the death of his mother in 1235.
Roger married Helen, eldest daughter and co-heiress of Alan, Lord ofGalloway. Without legitimate sons to succeed him, Alan's lands anddignities were divided between the husbands of his three daughters, soRoger acquired Alan's position as Constable of Scotland, and one-thirdof the lordship of Galloway (although the actual title of Lord ofGalloway went through Helen's half-sister Devorguilla to her husbandJohn I de Balliol).
The Galwegians rebelled under Gille Ruadh, not wanting their landdivided, but the rebellion was suppressed by Alexander II of Scotland.Roger ruled his portion of Galloway strictly, and the Galwegiansrevolted again in 1247, forcing Roger to take refuge in a castle.Faced with a siege and little chance of relief, Roger and a few menfought their way out and rode off to seek help from Alexander, whoraised forces to again suppress the rebellion.
In the following years Roger was one of the leaders of the baronialopposition to Henry III of England, although he fought for Henryagainst the Welsh in the 1250s and 1260s.
Following Helen's death in 1245, Roger married Maud de Bohun, daughterof Humphrey de Bohun, 2nd Earl of Hereford, around 1250. Maud diedonly two years later, and Roger married his third wife, EleanorFerrers, daughter of William de Ferrers, 5th Earl of Derby the sameyear.
Roger had three daughters by his first wife, but no sons. Hissubsequent marriages produced no issue. After his death his estateswere divided between the daughters, and the earldom of Winchesterlapsed. The three daughters of Roger and Helen of Galloway were:
1. Helen (also known as Ela or Elena), who married Alan Baron Zoucheof Ashby; 2. Elizabeth (also known as Isabella), who married Alexander Comyn,2nd Earl of Buchan; 3. Margaret, who married William de Ferrers, 5th Earl of Derby (andwas thus stepmother to her own stepmother).
