This would make him the son and successor [of] Rabel, who was a son of Tancred, founder of this family in Normandy in 912 a.d.
    Gerald de Tancarville, was father of Rabell, and may have had a younger son Geraldus.
    Rabel II, de Tancarville, son of Gerald de Tancarville, lived in the time of the Duke Robert of Normandy.
