From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Roger de Beaumont, 2nd Earl of Warwick (c. 1102 – 12 June 1153) was the elder son of Henry de Beaumont, 1st Earl of Warwick and Margaret (d. after 1156), daughter of Geoffroy, Count of Perche[1] and Beatrix of Montdidier. He was also known as Roger de Newburgh.

The borough of Warwick remembers him as the founder of the Hospital of S.
