Richard de Bertram (a 1086, 1135)
m. Sybil de Mitford (dau/heir of John de Mitford of Mitford)
1. William Bertram
  On both p39 & p 128, Hodgson identifies William as the founder of Brinkburne Priory. However, on p39 he is identified as son of Richard, "a son of the lord of Dignam", whilst on p125 he is identified as a son of Guy de Balliol and brother of Bernard Balliol of Bernard Castle, Bywell, etc.. Hodgson & BE1883 report that William's wife (and mother of Roger) was Hawise (or Alice), dau of Sir William Merley or Merlay of Morpeth, but TCP identifies her as Hawise, dau of Guy de Balliol.
  m. Hawise de Balliol (dau of Guy de Balliol)
  A. Roger Bertram of Mitford, Northumberland (a 1157, 1172)
  m. Ada
  i. William Bertram of Mitford & Greatham (d c1199)
  Hodgson & BE1883 suggest that William's wife Alice was dau of Robert Umfreville/de Umfravil but TCP suggests that she was his sister.
  m. Alice Umfreville (dau/sister of Robert Umfreville of Prudhoe, Redesdale, etc. )
  a. Roger Bertram of Mitford (d 1241-2)
m. Agnes
  (1) Roger Bertram of Mitford, Lord (b 05.12.1224, d before 04.1273)
  m. Joan (a 05.1315, m2. Sir Robert de Nevill of Raby, m3. Sir John FitzMarmaduke of Horden & Ravensholm)
  Hodgson shows Roger & Joan as having 2 sons, Roger (father of Agnes) & Thomas (father of John) with the sisters Agnes + Isabella + Christian + Ada being sisters of the younger Roger. This is supported by BE1883 (though that does not mention Thomas). TCP reports that Roger dspml, mentions the illegimitate son Thomas of Throphill, and reports that the alleged son Roger was "invented" by "Dugdale, or one of his predecessors".

  (a) Robert Bertram of Bothal (b c1287, d 1334)
  ((1)) Robert Bertram of Bothal, Sheriff of Northumberland (b c1322, d 1363)
  This looks to be the Robert (d 11.1363) who is shown by TCP (Poynings) as one of the husbands of Blanche de Mowbray. Provisionally we ignore that and follow Hodgson who identifies the wife of Robert and mother of Helen as the following Margaret but we will review this in due course.
