Sir Hugh Bigod
Birth: 1182
Norfolk, England
Death: Feb. 11, 1225
Norfolk, England

This memorial is dedicated to my ancestor Hugh Bigod, third Earl of Norfolk.
Hugh was the eldest son of Roger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk, and Ida de Tosny. For a short time he was also the 3rd earl of Norfolk.
In 1215 he was one of the twenty-five sureties of Magna Carta of King John. He succeeded to his father's estates (including Framlingham Castle) in 1221 but died in his early forties in 1225.
In late 1206 or early 1207, Hugh was married to Maud Marshal the daughter of Sir William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke and Isabel de Clare, 4th Countess of Pembroke. Together they had the following children:
Roger Bigod, 4th Earl of Norfolk, born c. 1209. Died childless.
Hugh Bigod (1211-1266), Justiciar of England. Married Joan de Stuteville, by whom he had issue.
Isabel Bigod (c. 1212- 1250), married firstly, Gilbert de Lacy, by whom she had issue; she married secondly, John FitzGeoffrey, Lord of Shere, by whom she had issue, including Maud FitzJohn, and Joan FitzJohn who married Theobald le Botiller, and from whom descended the Irish Earls of Ormond.
Ralph Bigod (born c. 1215)
