http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_I_of_England#Illegitimate_children

King Henry is famed for holding the record for the largest number of acknowledged illegitimate children born to any English king, with the number being around 20 or 25. He had many mistresses, and identifying which mistress is the mother of which child is difficult. His illegitimate offspring for whom there is documentation are:

1) Robert, 1st Earl of Gloucester. Often, said to have been a son of Sybil Corbet or of Woman de Caen.

2) Maud FitzRoy, married Conan III, Duke of Brittany

3) Constance FitzRoy, married Richard de Beaumont

4) Mabel FitzRoy, married William III Gouet

5) Aline FitzRoy, married Matthieu I of Montmorency

6) Gilbert FitzRoy, died after 1142. His mother may have been a sister of Walter de Gand.

7) Emma, born c. 1138; married Gui de Laval, Lord Laval. [Uncertain, born 2 years after Henry died.]

With so few details on this profile I can only assume it is intended to be the unknown woman from Caen concubine #1 of Henry I King of England however there is no record of the name Peural or Peveral being connected with her or Henry I or their son Robert that I can find. I will keep the name in her details in case some further evidence appears.

A charter dated to [1093/1110] records that "Guido filius Hamonis…et eius uxor Sicilia, filiusque eius…Guido" donated property to Marmoutier when "fratrem suum Hugonem" appeared to be dying, and a later donation by "Guido filius eius et Secilia uxor illius et Hugo frater illius"[377]. His parentage is confirmed more precisely by the charter dated to [1110] under which "Guy, Cécile son épouse, Guy et Gervais leurs enfants" approved a sale of property by one of the nuns at Ronceray[378]. He succeeded his father as Sire de Laval. The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records that "dominus…Lavallensis" participated in "la journée de Séez" 11 Dec 1118 when the supporters of Foulques V Comte d´Anjou captured Alençon from Henry I King of England[379]. An undated charter, dated to the early 12th century, under which the nuns of Ronceray confirmed an agreement, is witnessed by "Hugues de Laval, qui nunc dominium tenebat"[380], which suggests that Hugues [II] de Laval (see above) acted as regent during the minority of Guy [III]. A charter dated 1142 confirms the foundation of the priory of Plessis-Milcent by "Guido de Lavalle" and completed after his death by "filius eius Guido", with the consent of "matre sua Ama et Gervasio avunculo suo"[381].

Strongbow's mother was Isabel (Elizabeth) de Beaumont, sister to Robert earl of Leicester and Waleran count of Meulan. Isabel had been the youngest mistress of King Henry I, and their liaison resulted in a natural daughter, Isabel (Elizabeth), born c.1129/30. When Isabel de Beaumont married Gilbert in 1130, she took this daughter with her. Strongbow was born before the end of 1130; thus he was raised with the natural half-sister of the Empress Matilda.

GUY [III] de Laval, son of GUY [II] Sire de Laval & his second wife Cécile --- (-[1130/42], bur Marmoutier). A charter dated to [1093/1110] records that "Guido filius Hamonis…et eius uxor Sicilia, filiusque eius…Guido" donated property to Marmoutier when "fratrem suum Hugonem" appeared to be dying, and a later donation by "Guido filius eius et Secilia uxor illius et Hugo frater illius"[377]. His parentage is confirmed more precisely by the charter dated to [1110] under which "Guy, Cécile son épouse, Guy et Gervais leurs enfants" approved a sale of property by one of the nuns at Ronceray[378]. He succeeded his father as Sire de Laval. The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records that "dominus…Lavallensis" participated in "la journée de Séez" 11 Dec 1118 when the supporters of Foulques V Comte d´Anjou captured Alençon from Henry I King of England[379]. An undated charter, dated to the early 12th century, under which the nuns of Ronceray confirmed an agreement, is witnessed by "Hugues de Laval, qui nunc dominium tenebat"[380], which suggests that Hugues [II] de Laval (see above) acted as regent during the minority of Guy [III]. A charter dated 1142 confirms the foundation of the priory of Plessis-Milcent by "Guido de Lavalle" and completed after his death by "filius eius Guido", with the consent of "matre sua Ama et Gervasio avunculo suo"[381].

m ([1118/23]) EMMA, daughter of --- (-after [1153/62]). Broussillon refers to an assertion that a tomb in Clermont abbey recorded the burial of "Emma Anglorum regis filia dominaque Lavallensis" but adds that he found no document which confirms that this is correct[382]. "Guy de Laval" founded the abbey of Clermont, with the consent of "Emma sa mère, d´Hamon son frère, alors malade", by charter dated 1152[383]. "Guido Lavallensis dominus" donated property to Savigny by charter dated to [1153/62], witnessed by "…domina Emma matre mea…"[384].

I suspect that Emma daughter of ???? is the daughter of William the Conqueror NOT Henry I.

Strongbow's mother was Isabel (Elizabeth) de Beaumont, sister to Robert earl of Leicester and Waleran count of Meulan. Isabel had been the youngest mistress of King Henry I, and their liaison resulted in a natural daughter, Isabel (Elizabeth), born c.1129/30. When Isabel de Beaumont married Gilbert in 1130, she took this daughter with her. Strongbow was born before the end of 1130; thus he was raised with the natural half-sister of the Empress Matilda.
