Another name for Roger was Roger II DE TOENI de Conches.
One of the most controversial issues regarding the Tosny family is whether there were two individuals named Roger de Tosny who were active during the first half of the 11th century. Keats-Rohan raised the possibility that Roger de Tosny who travelled to Spain in  was different from a younger Roger de Tosny [maybe nephew of the former] who founded Conches abbey. The same theory has been espoused more recently by Jaime de Salazar Acha... The theory of two individuals is confirmed by the charter dated to  which is witnessed by both "Rodgerii filii Rodulfi" (assumed to be Roger [I]) and "Rogerii de Conchis" (Roger [II]). The parentage of Roger [II] has not been ascertained, but presumably he was closely related to Roger [I]. 1 2
Roger married Godechildis. (Godechildis was born in 1010 and died in 1079 in Normandy, France.)
