William de Roumare, Earl of Lincoln

William de Romare (born c. 1096) (also Roumare or Romayre or Romay), Earl of Lincoln, Baron of Kendall, Lord of Bolingbroke.

He was the son of Roger FitzGerold (de Roumare), 1st Baron of Kendall, Lord of Bolingbroke and Lucy, widow of Ivo de Taillebois (granddaughter of the Earl of Marcia and Ælfgifu Princess of England, daughter of King Ethelred II of England). He followed his father as Lord of Bolingbroke, Lincolnshire.

In Normandy, he was Seigneur (Lord) of Roumare.

He was created Earl of Lincoln by King Stephen after 1143. The Earl lived at both Bolingbroke and Lincoln Castle. He was the ducal constable of the fortress of Neufmarche, stoutly resisting Hugh de Gournay, then in rebellion there, in 1118 in Normandy.

Family and children

He married Hawise de Reviers, sister of Baldwin de Redvers, 1st Earl of Devon (Reviers) and had children:

# William de Roumare (c. 1151)
#Hawyse de Roumare (b. c. 1117?), married Gilbert de Gant, Earl of Lincoln.
#Rohese de Roumare, married Roger FitzReinfride (1114 – 1198).
