Robert De Ros
Birth: c. 1170
Death: Dec. 23, 1226

English Aristocracy. Born Robert de Ros, the son of Everard de Ros, third Lord of Hamlake and Rose Trusbut. He became a member of the Order of Knights Templar. In 1191 he apparently married Isabella, the sister of William the Lion, King of Scots. King John of England granted de Ros a Barony in about 1213 and he was then assigned as escort to William the Lion during his journey to England to swear fealty to King John. During the initial stages of the power struggle between the barons and the king, de Ros was John's man and won valuable grants from the Crown and was made governor of Carlisle. He eventually, however, changed his allegiance and became one of the twenty-five Sureties appointed to enforce the observance of Magna Carta. He commisioned the construction of the Castles of Hamlake in Yorkshire and of Werke in Northumberland. Upon his death he was buried in the Knights' Church, New Temple, London. His name has also been recorded as Robert de Ros of Furfan and Robert de Roos of Fursan. (bio by: Iola)
