Practically nothing is known about Roger - if indeed that was his name! His wife (or rather his daughter Goditha's mother) was named as Lucy in a number of pleas over inheritence by his daughter (1)(2)(3), but as the lands in question were inherited via her mother, he in not mentioned.
I can track down no contemporary document which names Goditha's father or Lucy's husband. However he is named by a number of later sources.
Brief details of his children:

Goditha replied that at the time the Fine was levied Roger was within the four seas, becuase he wasat Mynsterton in co. Leicester, which she was prepared to prove. Philip repeated that on the date of the Fine and for a year and a day afterwards, the said Roger was in Scotland, and died there, which he was prepared to prove*. A day was therefore given to the parties in Banco on the Tuesday after three weeks from St Michael, on which day both Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and because the plea could not be determined in co. Derby a day was given to the parties on the Thursday at a month from St Michael, on which day Goditha and Philip appeared in person, and stated that they were prepared to maintain their pleas as given above, and prayed that a jury might be summoned from co Leicester; and the Sheriff was ordered to summon a jury for the Octaves of St Hillary. A postscript shows that no jury had been empanelled up to the morrow of the Ascension. m334.
