Aubrey de Vere, II
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1080
Essex, England
Death: May 15, 1141
Greater London, England

Sheriff and Justiciar for both King Henry I and King Stephen. Master Chamberlain for King Henry I.

Son of Aubrey de Vere I, husband of Alice, daughter of Gilbert FitzRichard de Clare. They had at least nine children:
* Aubrey III, Earl of Oxford
* Rohese, Countess of Essex, wife of Geoffrey de Mandeville
* William de Vere, Bishop of Hereford
* Robert
* Alice of Essex
* Geoffrey
* Juliana, Countess of Norfolk
* Giulbert, Prior of the Knights Hospitaller
* Unk daughter, wife of Roger de Ramis

In 1133, King Stephen proclaimed the estates and offices of master chamberlain, Robert Malet to be forfeited, and awarded them to Aubrey. The de Veres would hold that office until the extinction of their males heirs in 1703. It is thought Aubrey's preference for the King's brother, the Duke of Normandy, led to their falling out.

The stone keep at Hedingham Essex was apparently started by Aubrey, and completed by his son, the 1st Earl of Oxford. Aubrey II also founded a cell of the abbey of St Melanie in Rennes, Brittany at Hatfield Broadoak in Hatfield Regis, Essex.

Aubrey was killed by a London mob during a riot, and buried in the family mausoleum, Colne Priory, Essex.
