  • Notes 
    • ROBERT DE ROS, son and heir [of Robert by Margaret de Brus], a minor at his father's death, was allowed to take possession of Wark, May 1274, until the King's return to England. In June 1294 he was summoned to the Council about the affairs of Gascony, and for service there. Summoned to Parliament 24 June and 1 October 1295, by writs addressed Roberto de Ros de Werk, whereby he is held to have become LORD ROS OF WARK. Early in that year he appears to have done service in Wales under the Earl of Lincoln. In March 1295/6, he went over to the Scots, and routed his brother William, who had been furnished by the King with troops for the defence of Wark. The King himself then occupied the castle (17-28 March), before a successful campaign in Scotland. Robert fled to his castle of Sanquhar, and finally into hiding, dying soon after in poverty. His lands were declared forfeit for treason, and any peerage conceived to have been created by the summons of 1 October 1295 became extinct. He married Laura (a) and died s.p.m. in or soon after 1296.

      (a) Possibly a Scot; both her daughters were born in Scotland. The elder, Margaret m. John Salveyn; the younger Isabel m. John de Knockes.
