possessions. He had likewise other important grants with the Earldom of
Cambridge, provided that dignity was not vested in the King of Scots, but if
it were, then he was to have his choice of the Earldoms of Oxford, Berkshire,
or Dorsetshire, all which grants being ratified by King Henry II., he was
created Earl of Oxford, with the usual grant to earls, of the third penny of
the pleas of the county. In the 12th year of King Henry II., on the levy of
the aid for portioning the king's daughter, the Earl of Oxford certified his
knight's fees to be in number twenty-eight, for which he paid 20, and in the

sister of Walter de Bolebec, to make a wife for his son." In four years

he then held, towards the sum at that time raised for the ransom of the king.

rewarded with the earldom of East Angles [Norfolk & Suffolk] about 1140. He
was faithful in his allegiance to King Stephen and continued to enjoy royal
favor, being re-created Earl of Norfolk and suffolk by Henry II, and obtaining

father had held. In 1177, as a Crusader, he made a pilgrimage to the Holy
