Goodrich Castle, Herefordshire, England.  In existence by 1101, known as Godric’s Castle, named probably after Godric of Mappestone.  At the beginning of the 12th century, the castle had passed from Godric to William Fitz Baderon, thought to be his son-in-law, and on to his son, Baderon of Monmouth who married Rohese de Clare, a member of the powerful de Clare family. Gilbert de Clare eventually acquired Goodrich Castle himself.  Gilbert generation 29 on tree.
