It is reckoned that Richard Renger was a London vintner, but he inherited much property from his father. The family descended from a Norman servant of the first Norman bishop of London. The family moved to a higher station through marriage.

At his death in 1239, Renger was worth perhaps £10,000, equivalent to 0.35% of the then net national income of £2.8m. Today that would be over £3.8bn.
