Roger de Mortimer, Sn de Mortemer-sur-Eaulne (a 1054, d before 1086)
m. Hawise de Valois (dau of Raoul III 'the Great', Count de Valois, d'Amien, etc)
TCP (Mortimer of Wigmore) identifies Roger's wife simply as Hawise. BE1883 does not name her at all. This identification comes from a web site.
1. Ralph de Mortimer (a 1066, 1104)
  m1. Melisande or Milicent (d before 30.03.1088)
Following BE1883, which shows Ralph as having only Melisande (Milicent) as a wife, we show her as mother of all of Ralph' s children. However TCP, whilst confirming Hawise's mother as Melisande, suggests that William may have been illegitimate and leaves open who was mother of Hugh. BE1883 shows also another son, Robert, ancestor of the Mortimers of Richard's Castle, but we show him on 'Mortimer02'.
  A. Hugh de Mortimer (d c1149)
  TCP and BE1883 disagree over the next few generations. BE1883 shows Hugh as followed by Roger (who m1. Milisent Ferrers, dau of Earl of Derby; m2. Isabel, sister of Hugh de Ferrers of Oakham) who was followed by his son Hugh (who m. Annora de Braose) who was followed by his half-brother Ralph (who m. Gladuse Duy). We follow TCP.
