Roger de Clare was a son of Richard Fitz Gilbert de Clare and Alice de Gernon. He succeeded to the earldom when his brother Gilbert died without issue. In 1164 he assisted with the Constitutions of Clarendon. From his munificence to the Church and his numerous acts of piety, Roger was called the "Good Earl of Hertford". He married (c. 1150) Maud de St. Hilary (1132-24 December 1193), daughter of James de St. Hilary and Aveline. Together they had seven children.

There is a first school, Roger de Clare School, in the village of Puckeridge, Hertfordshire, named after Roger de Clare.
