Among two charters granting land at Le Bingard to Mont-Saint-Michel, one of them by Humphrey de Cambernon, a vassal of Robert of Mortain, was a grant by a certain Ralph, hihis wife Asa and son Nigel (Cartulary of Mont-Saint-Michel, fol. 35r). He occurs in 1093-6 among the knights of the archbishop of Canterbury, following his marriage to Emma, daughter of William of Arques, lord of Folkestone.
