  Research Notes:

From Wikipedia - Hugh Bigod, 3rd Earl of Norfolk :

Hugh Bigod (c. 1182 - 1225) was the eldest son of Roger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk , and for a short time the 3rd earl of Norfolk .

In 1215 he was one of the twenty-five sureties of Magna Carta of King John . He succeeded to his father's estates (including Framlingham Castle ) in 1221 but died in his early forties in 1225.

In late 1206 or early 1207, Hugh was married to Maud Marshal (1192 - 27 March 1248 ), daughter of Sir William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke and Isabel de Clare, 4th Countess of Pembroke . Together they had the following children:

Roger Bigod, 4th Earl of Norfolk , born c. 1209. Died childless.
Hugh Bigod (1211-1266), Justiciar of England. Married Joan de Stuteville, by whom he had issue.
Isabel Bigod (born c. 1212), married to John FitzGeoffrey , Lord of Shere. Had issue, including Joan FitzGeoffrey who married Theobald le Botiller, and from whom descend the Irish Earls of Ormond .
Ralph Bigod (born c. 1215)

Contrary to the assertion of Frederick Lewis Weis, Ancestral Roots, there is no evidence for a fourth son called Simon Bigod. A man of that name appears as a witness to one of Earl Hugh's charters [Morris, HBII 2], but as the eighteenth name in a list of twenty, suggesting no close connection to the main branch of the family. He is also named among the knights who surrendered to King John at Framlingham Castle in 1216. He was a probably a descendant of Hugh or William Bigod, half-brothers to Earl Roger II Bigod.
Very soon after Hugh's death, Maud married William de Warenne, 6th Earl of Surrey

  Noted events in his life were:

3rd Earl of Norfolk, Feb 1221.

Magna Charta Surety, 1215.

Hugh married Maud Marshal, daughter of Sir William Marshal 1st Earl of Pembroke and Isabel de Clare, between 1206 and 1207. (Maud Marshal was born about 1192 in <Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales>, christened in Sep 1201, died on 27 Mar 1248 and was buried in Tintern Abbey, Chapel Hill, Monmouthshire, Wales.)
