Osbern (or Osbert), was probably born around the early 1040s (1), the son of Richard Scrob (11.a)(12.a)(12.c)(22).He acquired his first lands in Leintwardine hundred in Shropshire prior to his father's death (and prior to 1066) (11.d)(11.f). He still held this land at the time of Domesday in 1086, along with a lot more besides, much of which had previously been his father's (11)(12)(13)(14)(15)(16)(17)(18), but some of which, having been held by his mother in law in 1066, had probably come to him via his wife (12.o)(15.b). He married Nesta (7), the daughter of Gruffydd ap Llewellyn (2), and they had two known sons, Hugh (19)(21) and Turstin (21), and a daughter named either Agnes or Nesta (2). By the middle of William I's reign, around the early 1080s he was seemingly one of the most important men in Worcestershire (9)(10), but after William's death, he opposed William II, and fought for Earl Robert in the rebellion of 1088, when he attacked Worcester (8). He was still alive in December 1100 (23), but nothing more is known of him.
