William of Huntingfield
He held Dover Castle for King John from September 1203 and in exchange, the king held his son and daughter hostage. He was granted the lands seized from his disgraced brother and appointed Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk for 1210 and 1211. In the First Barons' War he was an active rebel against King John and one of the twenty-five chosen to oversee the observance of the resulting Magna Carta.
William was son of Roger de Huntingfield and Alice de Senlis who was a granddaughter of Simon I.
He married, as her third husband, Isabel Fitz Roger, who was the daughter of William Fitz Roger of Gressinghall, Norfolk. Isabel had been twice widowed: (1) Berenger de Cressy and (2) Osmund de Stuteville. They had two sons and four daughters. William was succeeded by his son Roger.
