Second Baron Clifford
Notes: The House of Clifford chapter 13. Only 14 when his father died at Bannockburn. He became the 2nd Lord Clifford and hereditary Sheriff of Westmorland but the castles and estates were granted to his uncle Bartholomew De Badlesmere for the duration of his minority. Along with the Earls of Hereford and Lancaster he opposed Hugh Despencer, king Edward II's new favourite, and took part in the siege of Tickhill Castle. They were forced to fall back to Pontefract and then they moved north but were intercepted by Edward's northern forces at Boroughbridge. Roger Clifford was wounded and surrendered to the King's commander Sir Andrew De Harclay. He was hanged at the beginning of 1327 and left no legitimate children but he did have a mistress, Julian of the Bower, with whom he had a number of natural children.
