Misc. Notes
Aubrey went on the First Crusade in 1098, and it was at this point that the star was added to his coat of arms.  According to legend, darkness was falling over the battlefield, and it appeared the saracens would be saved.  However, a brilliant star appeared on Aubrey de Vere's banner to illuminate the field.  The battle continued, the Crusaders were victorious, and the star became a permanent part of the Arms of de Vere.  Richard Thomson describes the arms as "Quarterly gules and or, in the first quarter a mullet argent".

Aubrey II began the construction of Hedingham castle which was completed by his sons Aubrey III and Robert.

Aubrey married to Alice de Clare, daughter of Gilbert FitzRichard de Clare.
