  BE1883 (Berkeley of Nottingham) suggests that the father of Roger (father of Alice) was called William and that he was nephew rather than son of the first Roger. What we show is supported by TCP (Berkeley).

3. son
  Barclay shows an unnamed 3rd son as father of William de Berkeley, ancestor of the Berkeleys of Cubberley. Fosbroke shows Ralph as son of William of Dursley & younger brother of Roger of Dursley (father of Robert who m. Alena, dau of Robert Fitzharding). It is therefore quite possible that this son (Ralph?) was of the next generation.
