Roger De Toeni

M, b. circa 990

Parents

Family: Godeheut Borrell (b. circa 995)

Biography

  • Birth: Roger De Toeni was born circa 990 in Tosni, France.
  • Note: Lord of Conches, Aquitiane and Toeni Founder of Conches Abbey where he was buried. Slain in 1038 during the civil wars of Normandy.

    Roger de Toeni was born about 1020, and died in May, 1040, and was buried May 30, 1040. (One reference says he died between 1040-1051.) With this Roger we may be said to emerge into the light of history. He appears as a typical leader among the Norman nobles, proud of his connection with the Dukes of Normandy, contemptuous of the base-born Duke William, quarrelsome among his peers, ready to engage in far distant expeditions for fame or booty, careless of the sufferings of others, and yet without inconsistency, the founder of an Abbey, which should expiate his misdeeds. He was hereditary Standard Bearer of Normandy, Lord of Conches, Aquitiane and Toeni. He was the Roger who, at a place called Vieux-Conches, about a mile west of the present town of Conches, built a fortress, the remains of which are to be seen today, and there the family resided until 1204. In 1035 he founded the Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul at Chatillon, and that of Conches, which he endowed with his manor of Dieppe. Between 1031-1035 he was sent by Henry I, of France, in company of other Normans, to the aid of Ferdinand, King of Castile and Leon. This expedition to Spain was the great fact in his life, and from which he derived his name of de Hispana or de Espagne, and was the first to carry Norman arms into the Spanish Peninsula. He became indignant at the accession of the illegitimate William to the Dukedom of Normandy, and rebelled. He was slain, with his young sons Helbert and Elinance, while resisting William's claims. He gained a reputation for cruelty, but also for invincibility in Spain, and there also found a wife, Godehildes, or Goodchild, daughter of Raymond Borrell, Count of Barcelona, and his wife Ermensenda. After his death she married 2nd Richard, Count of Evereux, grandson of Richard I, Duke of Normandy. Their issue was: Helbert and Elinance, slain with their father in the fight with Roger de Bellomonte or Beaumond; Ralph, of whom further; Robert, who received Stafford Castle in England from William the Conqueror, and became the ancestor of the Stafford family (he must have stood very high with William, as he owned 81 manors of Stafford. 26 in Warwick and others, amounting to 131 in all); Adelina or Adeliza, who married William FitzOsborne. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 607-608.)
  • Occupation: He was The Spainiard.
