Richard Lovett was an Anglo-Norman baron under William the Conqueror. The surname derived from the Anglo-Norman French Lo(u)vet, a nickname which meant 'wolf cub.'[1] Richard Lovett's sons, William and Robert Lovett were rewarded with land grants in England that were listed in the Domesday Book and stayed with the family into the twentieth-century.

Richard de Louvet's tomb is at the cathedral in Rouen[dubious ], France. His name[dubious ], and that of his sons' (as Guilliame Louvet) are engraved on the wall of the Notre-Dame Church at Dives-sur-Mer together with other companions of William the Conqueror, Normandy.
