A branch of the Roos family was enfeoffed in the manor of Youltonperhaps as early as the beginning of the 13th century, for a Williamde Roos disputed the right of Stephen de Meynell to land in Aldwarkbefore 1245-6. (fn. 104) In 1301 William de Roos paid subsidy there,(fn. 105) and in 1312 he was at the head of a riotous party offorty-seven people (partly women) who raided the property of Joanwidow of Walter de Stokesby of Tholthorpe, 'mowed her grass, burnedpart of her turves in her moor there, and carried away another part ofher turves together with her grass.' (fn. 106) In 1315 William de Roosheld 1 carucate in Youlton, (fn. 107) and the manor was settled on himand his wife Elizabeth with remainder to Joan their daughter in 1321and 1322.

He [Henry le Scrope] married Margaret (d). He died 7 September 1336,and was buried 8 September in Easby Abbey.
[Complete Peerage XI:535-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

(d) There seems to be no evidence of her parentage, except that on ashield of his arms in Wensley Church, executed about 1510, the arms ofFitzWalter are impaled (VCH, North Riding Yorks, where Margaret isdescribed as his 2nd wife); but a pedigree of Scrope from Brooke'scollections gives as Henry's wife a daughter of William, Lord Ros (ofHamlake); and in another collection circa Hen VIII, she is called adaughter of Lord de Ros. This MS says that Henry's son William m. adaughter of Lord FitzWalter. There is no record of any assignement ofdower, but Margaret appears to have survived him and to have m. 2ndly,Hugh de Mortimer (see note "g" under son William).
