    History Aubrey was born before 1090, possibly around 1080, the eldest surviving son of Aubrey I de Vere and his wife BĂ©atrice. Aubrey II married Alice de Clare, daughter of Gilbert FitzRichard de Tonbridge, lord of Clare and Tonbridge, and Adelize de Clermont. They were known to have had nine children, of whom two sons and three daughters would have progeny.

    Aubrey II served as sheriff of many shires and as a justiciar under kings Henry I and Stephen. King Henry I had declared the estates and office of the first lord chamberlain, Robert Malet, to be forfeit, and in 1135 awarded the office of lord chamberlain of England to Aubrey.

    William of Malmesbury reports that Aubrey represented King Stephen in 1139, when the king had been summoned to a church council to answer for the seizure of castles held by Roger, bishop of Salisbury.

    Aubrey was killed by a London mob on 15 May 1141, and buried in the family priory at Earls Colne. His eldest son Aubrey III was later created earl of Oxford, and their descendants were to hold the title and the office that came to be known as the Lord Great Chamberlain until the extinction of the male line in 1703. His daughter Juliane married Hugh Bigod, 1st earl of Norfolk.  [1
