Lancaster 1

: Lancaster of Kendal, Lea of Lea
Wo30. Eldred of Workington, lord of Kendal
Eldred may have been the same person as Aelfred, son of Ivo de Tailbois below, or Ivo's son-in-law having married his daughter Beatrix.
Wo29 Ketel FitzEldred, lord of Kendal
m Christiana
Wo28-1 William FitzKetel dsp
Wo28-2 Gilbert FitzKetel de Lancaster, lord of Kendal
Gilbert's wife Godith may have been the daughter or sister of Ketel so that Gilbert was Ketel's son/brother-in-law rather than his son, and incest cannot be entirely ruled out though less likely. Or she may have beens a daughter of Fulk FitzReinfride or as 'Mathematical' shows Gilbert & Godith as parents of Roger FitzReinfride and others who took their mother's family name. It seems likely that Roger FitzReinfride was of a different family altogether and as below.
m Godith
i. William de Lancaster, lord of Kendal d 1170
This William, the first of this family reported by BE1883, is identified by BE1883 as a great-grandson of Ivo Tailboys, brother of Fulk, Count of Anjou. Some web sites show him as son of Gilbert son of Aelfred de Taillebois which would comply with that great-grandson identification. However, we show him as great-great-grandson of Ivo and report the different views of Ivo's ancestry on 'ZZmisc03'.

Roger FitzReinfride de Bruere b c1114, d after 1198
1 Roger is sometimes shown as son of Gilbert de Lancaster, lord of Kendal above, and to have taken his family name from Gilbert's wife's family. However, evidence to support that view has not yet been found. Instead, information kindly brought to our attention by a site visitor TG, 17.01.05 suggests that Roger and his brother Ralph are found described in certain primary records as de Bruere, probably La Bruere-sur-Loir near la Fleche. That information also identified Roger's elder sons, Reinfrid and Ralph.
2 BE1883 identifies Roger Fitz-Reinfride "one of the justices of the King's Bench" as father of the following Gilbert but does not name Gilbert's mother. 'Mathematical' names her as Rohese de Romare dau of William de Romare, Earl of Lincolnbut it has been kindly brought to our attention by TG, 17.01.05 that Roger's wife was ...
