Sir William de Ros 2nd Baron

(circa 1255 - 1316)
     Sir William de Ros 2nd Baron was born circa 1255. He was aged 30 at his father's Inq. P.M. He was the son of Sir Robert de Ros 1st Baron and Isabel D'Aubigne.
     He was summoned, 28 June 1283, to the Assembly at Shrewsbury, as was (presumably his son) William de Ros.
     He was titled Lord Ros of Helmsley and Belvoir. He inherited Helmsley Castle in 1285 and continued his father's work at Helmsley with what amounted to a wholesale remodelling of the Castle's defences and its domestic accommodation. The Lordship of Helmsley remained in the direct de Roos line until 1478 when Edmund de Roos sold the property to Richard, Duke of Gloucester, later Richard III. Following Richard's death in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth, Helmsley was restored to Edmund who then held it until his death in 1508. As he had no direct heir, Helmsley passed to his cousin Sir George Maners of Etal in Northumberland who became the 12th Lord Ros of Helmsley.
