NOTES:
[1]  Ralph Mortimer was, by maternal ancestors, a 3rd cousin of King William I and accompanied him at Hastings.  The senior branch of the family was seated at Wigmore in Herefordshire.
[2]  In the year 1100, Ralph of Wigmore was banished to France for his plot to elevate a son-in-law to the English crown when William Rufus died without sons
[3] When Stephen succeeded Henry I as king, he restored Wigmore to Hugh Mortimer, son of Ralph.
[4]  Roger Mortimer, son of Hugh II, warred against the Welsh lords of Ceri even though they were allies of King Henry II.  He was briefly jailed in 1179 for killing Cadwallon ap Madog, Lord of Ceri
[5] Ralph Mortimer married Gwladys Ddu, daughter of Llewelyn Fawr of Gwynedd; she was born c. 1200
[6]  A junior branch of the family held Burford in Oxfordshire, but it's heiress carried that manor to the Cornwall family in the early 1300's
