We have chosen the name Beauclerc as a tribute to Henry I Beauclerc, the fourth son of William the Conqueror and the first English king to be born in England. Henry’s reign lasted 35 years until 1135 and opened a period of peace and prosperity for England and Normandy. He was called Beauclerc for his scholarly interests— he could read Latin and put his learning to effective use— and Lion of Justice for refinements which he brought about in the royal administration. The choice of Beauclerc symbolises our commitment to similar values, tradition, confidence and innovation.
