|Sheriff of Worcestershire|
1108 – c. 1114
|Preceded by||Urse d'Abetot|
|Succeeded by||Osbert d'Abetot|
Roger was the son of Urse d'Abetot, his predecessor as sheriff. He also held the custody of Worcester Castle, another office he inherited from his father. He may also have been a constable in Henry I's household, as his father had been. Along with the offices, Roger also inherited the barony of Salwarpe in Worcestershire. He was banished from England in around 1110 or in 1114 by King Henry I, and lost his office because of this. His lands were also forfeit. According to the medieval writer William of Malmesbury, Henry exiled him because Roger ordered that a royal official be killed.
