Robert de Stafford (known also as Robert of Tosny and Robert de Toeni) ( 1039 – c. 1100) was a Norman nobleman, the builder of Stafford Castle in England. He is generally said to have been a son of Roger I of Tosny; primary evidence is lacking to determine his parentage, according to Cawley. Cawley notes that Robert de Stafford is connected to the Tosny family through a charter (not dated) under which “Robertus de Stafford” confirmed donations to Wotton Wawen Abbey, Warwickshire by “avus meus Robertus de Toenio et pater meus Nicolaus de Stafford.” Also ”Robertus de Staffordia et Robertus filius meus et hæres” confirmed donations of property to Evesham Monastery by “Rodbertus avus meus...et pater meus Nicholaus” by undated charter.

He held a large number of lordships in the Domesday Survey, a high proportion lying in Staffordshire.[1] They included Barlaston[2] and Bradley[3] in Staffordshire and part of Duns Tew in Oxfordshire.

He is buried in Evesham Abbey.
