    • ROGER de Vieilles (-29 Nov 1094, bur Préaux, monastery of Saint-Pierre). "…Humfridus constructor eiusdem loci cum filiis suis Rogerio, Roberto, Willelmo…" are named as present in the charter dated 1035 under which "Willelmus adhuc puerulus…Roberti comitis filius" donated "Turstini villa" to the abbey of Préaux[3483

      1st Earl of Arundel, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury

      Third but eldest surviving son of Roger de Montgomery and an unknown wife, grandson of High Montgomery and Josceline. He married Mabel de Belleme, otherwise known as Mabel de Talvas, the daughter of Guillaume II Talvas Compte de Balleme and Hildeberge de Beaumont. They married about 1048 in Perche, France and had the following children:
      * Robert de Belleme, Count of Alencon and 3rd Earl of Shrewsbury
      * Hugh de Montgomery, 2nd Earl of Shrewsbury
      * Roger, Vicomte d'Heimois
      * Philip of Montgomery
      * Arnulf of Montgomer
      * Sibyl, wife of Roger FitzHamon, Lord of Cruelly
      * Emma, Abbess of Almencheches
      * Matilda, wife of Robert, Count of Mortain
      * Mabel, wife of Hugh de Chateauneuf
      * Roger, died young

      Roger was one of William the Conqueror's principal advisors, who stayed behind to govern Normandy during the conquest as William's deputy. He first came to England with William 06 Dec 1067, then returned to Normandy with King William the same year. He was given the rape (territory) of Arundel and then created Earl of Shrewsbury in 1071, becoming one of the greatest magnates during William's reign. Roger also owned over 150 manors in nine counties, and had a yearly income of £2000, which was equivalent to three percent of England's entire income at the time.

      Roger was instrumental in bringing about peace between King William and Fulk of Anjou, as well as reconciling William and his son, Robert.

      After King William's death, Roger joined the rebels in 1088 against the son, William Rufus, in support of Robert Curthose, Duke of Normandy. William Rufus managed to convinced Roger to join him, speculatively in lieu of lavish promises. Roger did turn his support to Rufus while the remaining rebels lost their holdings, and was soon found fortifying his castles at Belesme in preparation against Curthose who held Roger's sons prisoner. Roger was finally successful in negotiating on behalf of his sons for their safety and return. The rebels included his sons, Odo of Bayeux, Eustace III, Count of Boulogne, Robert de Mowbray, Geoffrey de Montbray, Earl Roger de Montgomery and Robert de Mortain.

      Roger's wife, Mabel, was an exceedingly cruel woman. While not very large in stature, she made up for it in bold schemes and pure wickedness. Her eldest son, Robert de Belleme, is said to have inherited her tendencies for savagery and cruelty. In an attempt to poison the son of a man responsible for blinding and mutilating her equally cruel father, she managed to kill her husband's youngest brother, Gilbert, instead. She would purposefully visit her husband's favorite abbey with a entourage large enough to damage their limited resources. The abbot told her if she did not mend her ways, she would suffer great pains, which evidently happened as she left quickly that evening and never returned. She was responsible for causing many of her husband's peers to lose their holdings and become penniless, including taking the hereditary lands of Hugh Bunel by force in 1077. Two years later, Hugh and his three brothers snuck into her castle at Bures and decapitated her as she rested in bed after a bath. In 1080, Roger sent gifts to Troan for a charter for the soul of his wife, and son Robert inherited her vast estates.

      After her death and burial at Troan, Roger married Adelaide de Le Puiset. Their son, Everard entered the church. Sweet Adelaide was said to have softened and improved Roger's disposition.

      Roger built Montgomery Castle about 1086, and led an invasion into Wales after the death of Rhys ap Tewdwr in 1093, the ruler of Deheubarth. The castles he built at Cardigan and Pembroke was his intention to keep Deheubarth under his control. However, Roger fell ill early the following year, entered the monastery at St Peter and St Paul Abbey, Shrewsbury, taking holy orders in fear of his death, and died three days later, July 27, 1094. He was buried there, the abbey he had founded.

      At Roger's death, his sons Robert inherited Normandy, Hugh received English estates and the title of Earl of Shrewsbury. Hugh received a fatal arrow in the eye slit of his armour during a raid against King Magnus of Norway, who was the actually killed Hugh. The entire family estate then fell to his brother, Robert.
