Source -William of Poitiers
"A certain Norman, Robert, son of Roger of Beaumont, being nephew and heir to Henry, Count of Meulan, through Henry's sister Adeline, found himself that day in battle for the first time. He was as yet but a young man and he performed feats of valour worthy of perpetual remembrance. At the head of a troop which he commanded on the right wing he attacked with the utmost bravery and success".

He and his brother Henry were members of the Royal hunting party in the New Forest when King William II Rufus was accidentally killed by an arrow.
