  • Notes 
    • Roger le Bigod, Baron Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk, Lord High Steward of England and Surety of the Magna Charta. Forced the Magna Charta from King John. Ref: Plantagenet Ancestry (p. ii) Discovery and Major Changes Perhaps the most important correction included in this book is the maternity of William Longespee, Earl of Salisbury, a well-known illegitimate son of King Henry II of England. William has long been thought to have been the product of his father's illicit affair with "Fair" Rosamond Clifford. In 1979 Vera London published charter evidence which proved that William was actually the son of an unidentified "Countess Ida." (V.C.M. London Cartulary of Bradenstoke Priory (Wilshire Rec. Soc. 35) (1979): 143, 188.) In 1993 Douglas Richardson identified William's mother as Ida, wife of Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk. (G. B. Roberts "Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants to the American Colonies or the United States (1993): 347. SURNAME: Also shown as Bigot AFN: Merged with a record that used the AFN G8BM-0N
