bullet  General Notes:

Count of La Marche.

Lancashire was almost wholly the domain of Count Roger of Poitou, third son of the great Earl Roger De Montgomery, the seigneur of Montgomery in the arrondisement of Lisieux in Normandy. Roger of Poitou (sometimes Pictavencis, Pictavis, or, in the West Riding, known as Roger le Poitevin). Those extenxive and rich holdings in the West Riding of Yorkshire were grants made by Duke William of Normandy in reward for his father's assistance at the Battle of Hastings.

Roger seems to have survived, perhaps because of his father's influence, although his holdings were considerably reduced by the time of the taking of the domesday Survey in 1086. In 1081, he lost two important Lancashire lordships, Crosby and Warrington (now Cheshire) to the Norman Villers family, ancestors of the traffords. He still retained as an under-tenant, however, and held in chief some 45 coastal holdings from West Derby north to the Ribble, generally known as the Argarmeles (located approximately in the Southport area). Most of the land north of the ribble, north to Heysham, had been retrieved and was now held directly by the King. This land immediately north ofthe Ribble, including Preston, Ribchester, and Lancaster, holdings classified as being in Yorkshire, was administered by Earl Tosti, under-tenant of the King but Roger had some remaining influence.

The fate of Roger is unknown although it is believed he returned to Normandy where Ansfrid de Montgomerio (successor or relation?) witnessed a charter of Count Roger in 1094. At this time he was giving to his local Abbey of St. Martin, a customary act of atonement by Norman magnates at the ends of their careers and lives, which by many might have been called ruthless and despotic. Most of his holdings in Lancashire, those waste and those of value, were retaken by the King during or soon after the Domesday book.[91502.ftw]
