Before 1112, acknowledged a charter as Aubrey, the King's Chamberlain, that he held Twywell; also held Great Addington and Drayton, in chief. He was joint sheriff, with Richard Basset, of Surrey, Cambridge, Hunts, Norfolk, Suffolk, Bucks, and Bedford beginning in late 1129, and of Essex, Herts, Leicester, and Northants from Easter 1130. Also served as a justice in Norfolk, one time with Robert Fitz Walter, and at another time with Richard Basset. At Fareham in July 1133, the King granted to him and his heirs the Master Chamberlainship of all of England. He was with the King at Westbourne in Aug 1133, and probably crossed the channel with him, as he attestsed to various writs and acts in Dieppe and Falaise. He was with Stephen in 1136 (Westminster and WInchester), in 1136/37 (Clarendon), 1137 (Winchester), and also at Portsmouth and Marlborough. Upon Stephen's summons to account for his arrest of the Bishops, the King sent Aubrey, as "a man practised in legal cases" to give the bishops his answer. He founded a priory at Hatfield Broadoak, Essex and was a benefactor to Colne Priory and Colchester Abbey. He was slain in a riot in London.
