You need to check Ray Phair's message of 3 July, subject "Countess Ida,
Bigod, Longespee" (I am not sure if this got through the gateway, I had to
get a copy from the archives)
In that message, you will find that Ray has found evidence that Ralph Bigod
was [half] brother of William Longespee earl of Salisbury and that this Ralph
Bigod was most probably the son of Roger Bigod (-1221) 2nd earl of Norfolk.
