        ID: I13155
        Name: *Robert LE STRANGE
        Sex: M
        Birth: ABT 1232 in Hunstanton, Norfolk, England
        Death: BEF 10 SEP 1276 in Prob. Litcham, Norfolk, England 1
        Robert, also a crusader, had returned home, but died a few months later, in 1276, leaving three sons, John, Fulk, and Robert, the second of whom was eventually the first baron of the house of Blackmere.

        Robert, the progenitor of this House, the fourth and youngest son of John le Strange (III) of Knockin. He died before September 1276, and his eldest son, John, who had been committed during his minority to the custody of Eineon, Bishop of St. Asaph, came of age on September 17, 1287, and was admitted to his inheritance on October 6 following.
        John died within two years; on June 14, 1289, the escheator south of Trent was ordered to take into the King's hands the lands late of John, son of Robert le Strange, deceased, tenant in chief.
        Like his brother Hamon, Robert, after the battle of Evesham, was rewarded for his loyalty to the King by a grant at the expense of one of the rebellious citizens of London. The Patent Roll of October 19 records a grant to Robert le Estraunge of a capital messuage in the City of London, late of John de Turri, the King's enemy. Another entry in the same Roll, on June 28, 1266, shows that Robert was still in the King's good graces, as a pardon is granted at his request to Hugh Corbet for the death of Adam le Ventrer.
        Robert died before September, 1276, as on the 10th of that month the Sheriff of Southampton was ordered to cause Eleanor, late the wife of Robert le Estraunge, tenant-in-chief, to have yearly œ30 of the manor of Chawton, which belonged to Robert, as the King has committed the said land to her until dower is assigned; the whole manor had been extended at œ40. The wife of Robert le Strange was Alianora, or Eleanor, second daughter and co-heiress of William de Whitchurch [de Albo Monasterio], from whom he ultimately acquired and transmitted to his descendants a considerable inheritance. Robert le Strange at his death left three sons, John, Fulk, and Robert, all of them under age.
