Robert Fitz Erneis

Let fall his lance took his shield and galloped towards the standard, sword in hand, hewing down with its trenchant blade an Englishman who stood before it, and, fighting his way through many others, reached the standard and endeavoured to cut it down, but the English surrounded it and killed him with their guisarmes. Robert Fitz Erneis was found on the spot when they afterwards sought for him, lying dead at the standards foot.

Robert Fitz Erneis married a lady named Hawise, sister of Fulk d’Aunou, and had a son named, like himself, Robert Fitz Erneis.
