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.
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.
The FMG shows only these four children as issue of Robert and Amice:
The below was found already in this profile
I think this is Marguerite de Beaumont (-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.

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.
