    In 1087 Robert Fitzhamon, a kinsman of William the Conqueror, acquired the Manor of Tewkesbury. Giraldus, Abbot of Cranborne, anxious to extend his dominion, was brought to Tewkesbury and the present abbey was founded with Giraldus as its first Abbot, in the last decade of the 11th century. Robert Fitzhamon died in 1107 from wounds received at the siege of Falaise and his body was buried in the Chapter House of Tewkesbury Abbey.
    After Fitzhamon's death, the building work was continued by his son-in-law, Robert Fitzroy, an illegitimate son of King Henry I, who saw the work through to the completion of the Norman phase and the consecration of the church in October 1121.
