His birth date range is suggested by his absence from any charters of King William I, which indicates that he may have come of age in the latter part of the king´s reign.

b) ROBERT de Beauchamp (-before 1130). Orderic Vitalis records that Bedford castle had been granted to "Rodberti de Bello Campo…frater eius" (the latter referring to Simon de Beauchamp)[430].

Hugh de Beauchamp

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hugh de Beauchamp was an Anglo-Norman holder of the feudal title Baron Bergavenny in the Welsh Marches in the late 12th century.

He is of the large Beauchamp dynasty but his parentage is as yet unknown or unproven. Hugh de Beauchamp became Baron Bergavenny or Lord Abergavenny after the deaths without issue of the sons of Miles de Gloucester, 1st Earl of Hereford. Hugh de Beauchamp in turn died or was killed around 1173, when Abergavenny Castle was seized by the Welsh.

-------------------- Came to England with William the Conqueror. [The Roll of Battle Abbey]

Beauchamps, near Avranches, in the Cotentin, was part of the barony of St-Denis le Gaste. Hugo de Belcamp is written in Domesday as holding a great barony, comprising 37 lordships in Bedford, Buckingham and Hertford. Hugh is said to have had three sons, Simon, Pagan, and Milo . This great family, one of whom was among the founders of the order of the Garter, was the same race as the Grenvilles, Meurdracs, Montagues and were the ancestors of the earls of Warwick. [Falaise Roll, p. 58]

Three or four under-tenants of Beauchamp of Bedford derived their names from places within the single canton of Tilly-sur-Seulles: Wimund de Taissel from Tessel, William de Locels from Loucelles, and Serlo de Ros from Rots. The fourth is Osbert de Broilg, who Round suggest s may have derived from Brouay, pointing out however that the Domesday form is more suggestive of Breuil, a name borne by several places in Calvados, though not in the canton of Tilly . These facts suggest further that the original home of the Beauchamps is to be sought in Calvados , but of the only two Beauchamps in that department one is a fief in Moyaux, cant. Lisieux, 7 6 kil. E of Tilly-sur-Seulles, and the other in Vouilly, cant Isigny, 32 kil W of it , and it is impossible to draw any sound inference from such evidence. [Anglo-Norman Familie s, pp. 2 0-21]
