AUBREY DF VERE II, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir, born probably befo re 1090, assented to his parents' gift of the church of Kensington to Abin gdon, and as their heir approved of the foundation of Colne Priory. Befo re the death of Gunter, Abbot of Thorney, in 1112 he acknowledged by chart er, as Aubrey the King's Chamberlain, that he held Twywell (Notthant s) of Thorney. He also held Great Addington and Drayton, in chief, and oth er small properties in Northants. On the death of his youngest brother Wil liam, he gave two ploughlands to Abingdon Abbey. As Aubrey de Vere, the Ki ng's Chamberlain, he confirmed the gifts of his father and mother and of h is men, and his father's gifts of certain tithes, to Colne Priory. He begi ns to attest 1121. He was sheriff of London and Middlesex in 1121 or 11 22 and joint sheriff in 1125; and sheriff of Essex in various years. He w as joint sheriff, with Richard Basset, of Surrey, Cambridge, Hunts, Norfol k, Suffolk, Bucks, and Beds from Michaelmas 1129, and of Essex, Herts, Lei cester, and Northants from Easter 1130. He was at the Council of Northampt on in 1131. He was a justice in Norfolk, at one time with Robert FitzWalte r, at another with Richard Basset. In July 1133, at Fareham, the King gran ted to Aubrey de Vere and his heirs his (the King's) Master Chamberlainsh ip of all England, in fee and inheritance.

He a lso attested various royal acts of doubtful date, and other charters. At t he end of August 1139, when the Synod at Winchester summoned Stephen to ac count for his arrest of the Bishops in June, the King sent Aubrey, as a m an practised in legal cases, to give them his answer; and Aubrey spo ke up boldly for his royal client. According to his son, he was Chief Just iciar of England. He founded a priory at Hatfield Broadoak, Essex, as a ce ll of St. Melaine of Rennes, and was a benefactor to Colne Priory and Colc hester Abbey.
