About Guillaume I de Tancarville, Seigneur de Tancarville, Chamberlain to the Duke of Normandy

Translated from French wikipedia:

Guillaume (I) de Tancarville (circa 1075-1129), son of Raoul, chief chamberlain of Normandy and England. It seems certain that he is the chamberlain of Duke Robert Courthose and his brother Henry Beauclerc, after his victory at the Battle of Tinchebray (1106). He was a close adviser to King Henry I of England. He was a frequent witness to his actions, and also performed the function of judge. Considered a lord permanently loyal to the king by Orderic Vital, he was at his side at the seige of the Chateau d'Eu in 1089. He participated in the Battle of Bremule (1119) alongside the king of England against the king of France during a chance meeting in Vexin. According to Henry of Huntingdon, it was he who commanded the rebel force that captured Galeran IV Meulan Bourgtheroulde in 1124. However, the Norman chronicler Orderic Vitalis did not mention this in his account of this event. Guillaume founded the Abbey of Saint-Georges de Boscherville (c. 1112/1113), which replaces the college founded by his father. Through his sponsorship, it attracted a large number of donations, including that of King Henry I who gave him the port of Bénouville. This became the burial place of the family. He married Mathilde d'Arques, heiress of a powerful family.
