[1074] "Already Norman families, who were to make so much of the history of the coming centuries, were rooted in the land. Montfort and Mortimer; Percy, Beauchamp, and Mowbray; Ferrers and Lacy; Beaumont, Mandeville, and Grantmesnil; Clare, Bigod, and Bohun; and many others of equal or nearly equal name. All these were as yet of no higher than baronial rank, but if we could trust the chroniclers, we should be able to make out in additiona considerable list of earldoms which William had established by this date or soon afterwards, in many parts of England, and in these were other great names..."

p107: "...The King's brother, Richard of Cornwall, had shown a tendency at first to side with the barons. He was a calculating young man, however, and Peter des Roches managed to win him back by flattery and promises.He accomplished the same results with the powerful earls of Chester and Lincoln..."
p123: "It took a year for the royal displeasure to cool, but finally Walter [Marshal] was allowed to succeed. He went to Gascony with the King the following year but had no opportunity to display his mettle. He married Margery, the widow of John de Lacey, Earl of Lincoln, on his return, but the union remained unblessed by children. Three years later he followed his three older brothers into thegrave, dying suddenly at Goodrich Castle on March 24, 1245." p175: "Princess Margaret's early days were spent at Windsor. Soom after her birth Edward was given the royal castle of Eltham as his residence, and her companions at first were Edmund and a daughter of the Earl of Lincoln who lived as a ward with the royal family. Later there were more brothers and sisters and more wards, and so Margaret's childhood was a pleasant one..."
