Marguerite (Beaumont) de Tosny was a member of aristocracy in England.

Robert Torigny tells us that the dau. of Robert, Count of Leicester, was the wife of Raoul de Tosny. (".... the wife of "Radulfus de Toene" as "filia Roberti comitis Leccestriæ") ... (Chronique de Robert de Torigny)

She is recorded in the 1163/64 Pipe Roll as Marguerite, wife of Raoul de Tosny, making payment for supplies in Essex/Herefordshire ("Margareta uxor Rad de Toeni")

She was again recorded in the Rotuli de Dominabus as “Margareta de Tony…” in 1185.

this last item appears to be the last recorded event for her and is most likely the basis for her d. date of aft. 1185.

In Royal Ancestry (Vol. V page 171) Richardson states that she was 'Margaret of Leicester' daughter of Robert of Meulan, Knt. 1st Earl of Leicester, by Amice, daughter of Raoul, seigneur (lord) of Gael in Brittany and Breteuil in Normandy. Robert of Meulan is known to history as Robert de Beaumont, but his daughter Margaret may not have particularly followed that surname.

Research Notes

I think this is Marguerite de Beaumont ([1125]-aft 1185) the wife of Raoul de Tosny, son of Roger, Seigneur de Tosny and Gertrude (Ida) de Hainault. She was the da. of Robert de Beaumont "le Bossu" (1104-1168), Earl of Leicester and Amice de Gaël.[1]

De Beaumont-382 and Beaumont-529 appear to represent the same person because: Fixes LNAB, details in De Beaumont-382 research note. Her spouse and son are also duplicates.

I've restored the data to what I had previously entered, based on EuroAristo guidelines, editing PFN, PN & CLN to that shown in the FMG database, our main source for medieval genealogy in the European Aristocrats Project.

Her formal first name was "Marguerite", again as shown in the FMG. The later use of "Margaret of Leicester" was a nickname and is placed correctly in that data field.
