Roger de Toeni, also called Roger de Conches; fought Muslims in Spain; married 1st? Stephanie (m. 2nd Garsias, King of Spain) sister of Raymond Berenger, Count of Barcelona; married 2nd? Godeheut (m. 2nd Richard, 3rd Count of Evereux), and died 1038 or 1039 in battle against a neighboring noble whose territory he had overrun in a revolt against the succession of William I the Conqueror to his father's Norman possessions on the grounds that William was illegitimate. [Burke's Peerage]

Note: According to Burke's, Roger married two different women as 1st husband, both married later husbands. There is no explanation given. Did the first marriage end in divorce? Or was one of the marriages, perhaps the 1st one, a "handshake" marriage not officially recorded?


Standard bearer of Normandy. [Bernard Burke, Dormant and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd, London, 1883, p. 498, Stafford, Barons Stafford]
