The article on Mortimer of Attleborough, on pp.243-250, gives:

(1) Robert de Mortimer probably temp. Henry I

(2) William de Mortimer, s and h, d before 1180

(3) Robert de Mortimer, s and h, d 1216 or 1217; m possibly Alice, da of
Warin de Muncheney by Agnes, da of Payn FitzJohn, living 1192

(4) William de Mortimer, s and h, living 1242

(5) Robert de Mortimer, s and h dead by 1265; m Isabel

(6) William de Mortimer, s and h, a minor at his father's death, d. 12 Nov
1297; m Alice, remarried to John de Thorp by 1302

(7) Constantine de Mortimer, s and h, aged 16-18 at his father's death, d
between April 1358 and 9 August 1359;
m 1st Sibyl, who d 9 Nov 1334 and 2nd, in or before 1342, Catherine.

(8) Constantine, s and h apparent, living 1324, d. sp 25 Dec 1355; m Agnes,
remarried to Thomas de Gissing by Feb 1358

The line continues through the 2nd son of (7), Robert. The line from (1) to
(6) was alleged to support a claim to the advowson of Stanford in 1276-8.
