    The Families of St. John and of Port by JH Round page 3-4

    It would, indeed, be difficult to believe that Roger's sons were alive as late as 1187 if we had not decisive evidence of the fact. I have specially examined for the purpose the cartulary of Boxgrove Priory, founded by the lords of the Honour of Halnaker. We have there a charter of confirmation granted by William de St. John and Robert, his brother with Godeheld, wife of William, in which we have mention of "Robertus avus suus de Haia et pater suus Rogerius de Sancto Johanne;" and this document gives its data as 1187. [footnote 1]

    Footnote 1: fo. 18. There is also a confirmation of it by Willia, Bishop of Constances.
