  • Notes 
    • Roger, Lord Scrope of Bolton was a member of the English peerage in the late fourteenth century.

      He was the second son of Richard Scrope, 1st Baron Scrope of Bolton (c. 13271403) and Blanche de la Pole (sister of the earl of Suffolk). Roger Scrope's elder brother, his father's heir, had been beheaded for treason by the newly crowned King Henry IV in 1399, making Roger his father's heir.[1]

      Roger Scrope was probably born prior to 1370,[2] and had been knighted 1385, whilst he was deputy governor of Mann. He was married c. 1385 to Margaret Deincourt (daughter and coheiress of the second Lord Deincourt).[3]

      Roger Scrope died in Bolton on 3 December 1403, only four months after inheriting his title. He was buried in Easby; his will had been written two days previously. His widow married again two years later, but her second husband fled the realm in 1415, having been condemned as a felon.[4]

      His heir was his only son, who became Richard Scrope, 3rd Baron Scrope of Bolton.[5]
