   General Notes:


The Political History of England, Vol II, George Burton Adams Longmans Green and Co, 1905, ChXII, p261:
[1155] "...Roger, Earl of Hereford, son of Miles of Goucester, who had been so faithful to Henry's mother, secretly left the assembly [Second Great Council] determined to try the experiment of rebellion rather than to surrender his two royal castles of Hereford and Gloucester. In this attitude he was encouraged by Hugh Mortimer, a baron of the Welsh Marches and head of a Conquest family of minor rank which was now rising to importance, who was also ready to risk rebellion. Roger did not persist in his plans. He was brought to a better mind by his kinsman, the Bishop of Hereford, Bilbert Foliot, and gave up his castles..."
