      ** from Complete Peerage, vol 9, pp 275+
      Mortimer. Ralph de Mortimer, brother and heir. In 1216 he had been one of a deputation sent by King John to William Briwere, after his forced adhesion to the Barons during their occupation of London, to arrange for his return to the King's service; and in Sep. 1217 he had witnessed at Lambeth the articles drawn up between Henry III and Louis of France. On 23 Nov. 1227 he gave L100 as relief for the lands of his brother Hugh, and the King took homage; and on 8 July 1229, for his faithful service, he was pardoned all except L500 of the debts of his father and brother. In Oct. 1230 he obtained a charter for a fair at Knighton and free warren at Stratfield, and in 1231 he was made custodian of Clun Castle and honour during pleasure. In June 1233, with the other Lords Marchers, Ralph eschanged hostages with the King de fideli servicio, quousque regnum sit ita securatum quod firma pax sit in regno Anglie. On 7 Nov. following he attested a charter of Henry III at Hereford. He was present on 28 Jan. 1235/6 at the confirmation of Magna Carta at Westminster, and in the same year he and the other Lords Marchers claimed the right to find and bear the silvered spears which supported the canopies held over the King and Queen in their Coronatin procession; but the rights of the Barons of the Cinque Ports to carry both canopies being allowed, the Marchers' claim was rejected as frivolous. In 1241 he was first of the pledges to the King for his sister-in-law Senana, wife of Griffith ap Llewelyn; but in Aug. that year Meredith ap Howel and the other Welsh lords of Kerry made a permanent peace with Henry III, whether they should be at war with Ralph de Mortimer or not. In June 1242 he was summoned to come to the King's aid in Gascony as soon as possible.

      He married, in 1230, Gladys (Gladusa) Duy, or Dark-eyed, daughter of Llewelyn ap Jorworth, by his second wife, Joan (illegitimate daughter of King John), and widow of Reynold de Braose (d. June 1228). He died 6 Aug. 1246, and was buried at Wigmore. His widow died in 1251.
