Which Sir Roger de Buron (who is by some writers deemed his brother), gave certain lands to the church of Swinsted, and the monks there, as appears by a confirmation thereof by Hen. II. in whose reign he paid 10l. scutage for ten knights fees in Nottingham and Derby shires. (Rot. Rip. A. 6. 6 R. I.) Also, in the sixth year of Richard I. on the aid of 20 s. for each knight's fee, for that King's redemption, he answered 10l. for ten knights fees in the beforementioned counties. Likewise, in the first year of King John, he answered for ten knights fees towards the scutage of Normandy, then assessed at two marks for each knight's fee. He married Nichola (Thoroton's Nott. p. 260), dauther of Roeland de Verdon, who survived him, and had for her second husband Anketin de Brkesard; but being married without the King's consent, her lands were seized, and for some of them she was fined in the second year of the reign of King John. By the said Roger de Buron she had issue two sons. [Complete Peerage VII:91]


Roger de Burun, son of Hugh de Burun d. 1155, and probably grandson of Ralph de Burun, lord of Horsley, Derbyshire. At his death in 1194 his barony was taken over by the king and subsequently given to Peter III de Sandiacre, although Roger left a son Robert. [Domesday Descendants p363]
