He witnessed charters under Robert I Duke of Normandy. He founded the monasteries of Saint-Pierre before 1035 and Saint-Leger in [1040], both at Préaux, near Pont-Audemer: Orderic Vitalis records that “Unfredus de Vetulis” founded Préaux.

The Chronicon Beccensis Abbatiæ records that "Hunfredus de Vitullis pater Rogerii de Bellomonte et Albereda uxor eius" founded two monasteries "in fundo Pratelli” in 1053.
