Robert was son and heir of his father, also Robert, by his first wife. He was born 1222. On the death of his maternal uncle, Hugh, Earl of Arundel, 7 May 1243, succeeded to the castle and manor of Buckenham, Norfolk. Although he was the senior coheir, he did not claim or succeed to the Earldom of Arundel (originally and properly of Sussex).
Robert served with his father in 1244. He went with the King, in 1253, to Gascony. He was going on the King's service to Wales in 1257, and was summoned to muster at Chester for service against Llewellyn in 1258. He was also summoned for service against the Welsh in 1260, 1263 and 1264, and was called under arms to London in 1260 and 1261.

After the royal victory at Evesham in 1265, he aided the Crown in restoring peace. He was appointed in June 1266 to keep the peace in co. Lincoln and to receive into the King's peace those who were willing to stand trial for their misdeeds.
