Petri honore fundatam" to Bordeaux Saint-Pierre, with the consent of "meus filius Iordanus", by undated charter, subscribed by "…Aimerici de Roca Cauardi", followed by a charter dated 1089 under which "Iordanus cum filio meo eodem nomine dicto" noted that "Engolismorum consule avunculo meo Fulcone" agreed to reconstruct "Barbastam"[34]Seigneur de Chabanais et de Confolens.  "Jourdain de Chabanais et Amélie sa femme" donated "l’église de Saint-Pierre de Cellefrouin" to the abbey of Charroux by undated charter, dated to the early 12th century[35]m [as her second husband,] AMELIE, [widow of ---,] daughter of [AUDEBERT [II] Comte de la Marche & his wife Ponce ---] (-after 1140).  "Jourdain de Chabanais et Amélie sa femme" donated "l’église de Saint-Pierre de Cellefrouin" to the abbey of Charroux by undated charter, dated to the early 12th century[36].  A manuscript genealogy records that “Eschivat”, son of “Jordanum”, son of “Jordanus Exbarrel, qui perrexit Jerosolymis”, married “filia comitissæ Marchiæ[37].  The probable chronology of the Chabanais family suggests that she was Ponce, wife of Audebert [II] Comte de la Marche.  It is not clear from the document whether Eschivat’s wife was the daughter of “comitissæ Marchiæ” by her marriage to the comte de la Marche or by another otherwise unrecorded earlier or later marriage.  However, the name Amélie strongly suggests that she was descended from the wife of Bernard Comte de la Marche who bore the same name.  A charter dated to after 1140 records an agreement between "Amelia de Cabaniaco et Matildis filia mea" and Saint-Pierre d’Angoulême regarding "manso de Sorouma", for the souls of "virorum nostrorum…Jordani de Cabaniaco et Ademari de Rupe et Maentiæ"[38].  Eschivat & his wife had one child: 

i)          AMELIE de Chabanais .  The Historia Pontificum et Comitum Engolismensis records that Vulgrin [II] Comte d’Angoulême, during the lifetime of his father Comte Guillaume [V] from the context, therefore dated to before 1120, granted "castellum Chabanes et Confolent", claimed by “Ademaro domino Rupis-Folcaudi...ex parte uxoris suæ”, to “Roberto de Burgundio, [Aimerico de] Rancone” together with “filia Jordani Eschivati” who had died without male heirs, the same passage adding that “idem Robertus” repudiated the agreement and joined the Knights Templar, whereupon the land and bride were granted to "Willermo de Mastacio fratri Roberti domini Montis-Berulli" on the advice of “Vulgrini comitis[39]Betrothed to ROBERT de Craon, son of RENAUD de Nevers Seigneur de Craon & his wife Enoguen [Domita] de Vitré Heiress of Craon (-[Jan 1147]).  m GUILLAUME de Matha, son of [ROBERT de Montbéron & his wife Emma de la Roche].  1101/1136. 

Jourdain [V] & his second wife had two children: 

3.         AINARD de Chabanais .  A manuscript genealogy names “Ainardum et Bosonem” as the sons of “Jordanus Exbarrel, qui perrexit Jerosolymis...ex alia uxore[40]

4.         BOSON de Chabanais .  A manuscript genealogy names “Ainardum et Bosonem” as the sons of “Jordanus Exbarrel, qui perrexit Jerosolymis...ex alia uxore[41]

 

 

1.         MATHILDE (-after 1140).  Her marriage and family origin are indicated by the Historia Pontificum et Comitum Engolismensis which records that "castellum Chabanes et Confolent" was claimed by “Ademaro domino Rupis-Folcaudi...ex parte uxoris suæ” when it was granted by Vulgrin d’Angoulème to “Roberto de Burgundio, [Aimerico de] Rancone” together with “filia Jordani Eschivati” who had died without male heirs[42].  This passage clearly indicates that the wife of Aimery de la Rochefoucauld was not the daughter of Eschivat de Chabanais.  A charter dated to after 1140 records an agreement between "Amelia de Cabaniaco et Matildis filia mea" and Saint-Pierre d’Angoulême regarding "manso de Sorouma", for the souls of "virorum nostrorum…Jordani de Cabaniaco et Ademari de Rupe et Maentiæ"[43].  This second charter suggests that Mathilde was the daughter of Eschivat’s wife by an earlier marriage.  If that is correct, Aimery de la Rochefoucauld’s claim to Chabanais must have been unfounded.  The reference to "Maentiæ" in this second source has not yet been elucidated.  As noted above, an earlier section of the same passage of the Historia Pontificum et Comitum Engolismensis recounts further exploits of the same Aimery de la Rochefoucauld, who is more likely to be identified as the brother of Guy [III] than Guy [III]’s son Aymar.  If this is correct, the chronology suggests that Mathilde must have been Aimery’s second wife and not the mother of his daughter who is referred to below.  m [as his second wife,] AIMERY de la Rochefoucauld, son of GUY [II] Seigneur de la Rochefoucauld & his wife Eve --- (-after 1109).   

 

 

 

B.      SEIGNEURS de CHABANAIS (MATHA/MONTBRON)

 

 

GUILLAUME de Matha, son of [ALDUIN BORRELL Seigneur de Monbron] & his wife Philippa --- (-1136 or after).  His family origin is confirmed by the Historia Pontificum et Comitum Engolismensis which records that, after "Roberto Burgundio" repudiated his marriage contract to join the Templars, his land and bride were granted to "Willermo de Mastacio fratri Roberti domini Montis-Berulli" on the advice of "Wlgrini comitis"[44]The parentage of Guillaume’s brother Robert de Montbron is confirmed by the Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis which names Robert’s aunt "Almode sorore Alduini Borrel, patris Roberti de Monbrond" when recording her marriage to "Ebolus de Ventadour"[45]According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the two brother were possible sons of Robert [I] de Montbron and his wife Emma, daughter of Adémar de la Roche[46], but the Chronicon indicates that this suggestion is incorrect.  The different geographical epithets given to the two brothers suggests that they may not have shared the same father. 

m ([1120]) AMELIE de Chabanais, daughter of ESCHIVAT Seigneur de Chabanais et de Confolens & his wife Amélie ---.  The Historia Pontificum et Comitum Engolismensis records that Vulgrin [II] Comte d’Angoulême, during the lifetime of his father Comte Guillaume [V] from the context, therefore dated to before 1120, granted "castellum Chabanes et Confolent", claimed by “Ademaro domino Rupis-Folcaudi...ex parte uxoris suæ”, to “Roberto de Burgundio, [Aimerico de] Rancone” together with “filia Jordani Eschivati” who had died without male heirs, the same passage adding that “idem Robertus” repudiated the agreement and joined the Knights Templar, whereupon the land and bride were granted to "Willermo de Mastacio fratri Roberti domini Montis-Berulli" on the advice of “Vulgrini comitis[47]

a)         GUILLAUME ESCHIVAT (-after 3 Aug 1214).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.   King John issued an order to "Aymericus de Rupe Chiward Jordanus et Chiwardus de Chabbenes" dated 3 Aug 1214[49]m ---.  The name of Guillaume Eschivat's wife is not known.  Guillaume Eschivat [II] & his wife had one child:

a)         EBLES [I] de Chabannes (-after 1226).  Champeval states that Ebles was the son of Eschivat [I], named after his maternal uncle who was his godfather, but does not cite the corresponding primary source[53].  Ebles de Chabannes donated property to the abbey of Bonaigue, with the consent of "Ebles son fils", by charter dated to [1215][54]m ---.  The name of Ebles’s wife is not known.  Ebles [I] & his wife had one child:

3.         LORE de Chabanais ([1240/45]-1316).  An anonymous Chronicon of Saint-Marcial records the death in 1284 of "Echivatus comes Bigorre et dominus de Cabanisio" in Navarre and the succession of "domina Lora soror sua"[75]The record of the 1503 hearing relating to the dispute over the inheritance of the county of Bigorre records that "dame Lore sa seur, fille…de…dame Hélys et Jordain de Chabannoys" succeeded "Eschivat" as comtesse de Bigorre, adding that she left it to "messire Aymery de la Roche son filz"[76]The testament of “Esquivatus comes Bigorræ dominus de Chabanez”, dated 18 Aug 1283, appointed “dominam Loram sororem meam” as his heir[77].  She succeeded her brother in 1283 as Comtesse de Bigorre, Dame de Chabanais et de Confolens.  An anonymous Chronicon of Saint-Marcial records the marriages in 1284 of "Lora filia Echivati de Cabanasio" and "R vicecomiti Turenne" and of "filius primogenitus dicti Raymundi" and "filiam dicte Lore"[78]A charter dated 1297 records the appointment of arbitrators in the dispute between "Mathildis de Courtenaio comitissa Theati uxor…domini Philippi de Flandria, filii…comitis Flandrensis" and "Lora vicecomitissa Turenne domina de Cabanesio soror dicte domine Mathildis" concerning the county of Bigorre, which they had sold to "domina Johanna regina Francie et Navarre"[79].  A charter dated 1 Mar 1298 records the decision of the arbitrators in the dispute between "domina Matildim comitissam Theauti" and "dominam Loram vicecomitissam Turenne dominam de Cabanesio sororem dicte domine Mathildis" concerning the county of Bigorre, deciding that if the county was ever recovered from "domina Johanna regina Francie et Navarre" it should be held by both parties according to their respective shares[80].  A charter dated 1302 records that Philippe IV King of France summoned "comitem Fuxi, Margaritam comitissam Fuxo eius matrem, comitissam Armaignensem relictam domini Geraldi de Armaniaco, Constanciam vicecomitissam de Marciano, et Guillermam de Bearno dominam de Moncada" as proxy for "consortis nostre regine, Guillelmo Tesson militi et Lore vicecomitisse Turenne" for a hearing relating to the county of Bigorre[81]Raimundus vicecomes Turenæ miles” appointed “dominam Loram vicecomitissam Turenæ dominam de Chabanez aviam maternam prædictæ filiæ nostræ” as guardian of his daughter Marguerite by charter dated 11 Jun 1304[82]"Lore vicomtesse de Turenne dame de Chabanès, comme tutrice des enfants de feu Aimery de Rochechouart, damoiseau, son neveu" contracted the marriage of "sa nièce Lore avec Simon de Rochechouart chevalier, seigneur de Saint-Laurent, avec les dispenses de parenté, lesquelles seraient obtenues du Pape" dated "le vendredy après Saint-Nicolas d’hyver 1304", which also records that "Messire Foucaud de Rochechouart doyen de Bourges donna audit Simon son frère cent livres de rente..." and "la dite dame vicomtesse fait mention de son testament et de ses enfants Aimery et Jean"[83]m firstly --- de la Roche, son of --- (-before 1284).  The problem of identifying the first husband of Lore de Chabanais is discussed below.  m secondly (1284) as his second wife, RAYMOND [VI] Vicomte de Turenne, son of RAYMOND [V] [Vicomte] de Turenne & his wife Alemande de Malemort (-[1284/22 Feb 1285]). 

 

 

1.         ESCHIVAT de Chabanais .  Eschivat de Chabanais, father of Amice, has not been identified.  It appears unlikely that he was the same person as Eschivat de Chabanais (who died in 1283, see above) as he was comte de Bigorre, a title which would probably have been mentioned in the source quoted below if it had been applicable.  m ---.  The name of Eschivat’s wife is not known.  Eschivat & his wife had one child: 

a)         AMICE de Chabanais (-[before 1280]).  An anonymous Chronicon of Saint-Marcial records that "Archambladus vicecomes Comborum...Guido primogenitus suus" married firstly "Amissiam filiam Echivati de Cabanisio" during the lifetime of his father and after her death "Almodiam filiam Gaufredi de Thouvaz"[84]m (before 1277) as his first wife, GUY de Comborn, son of ARCHAMBAUD [VII] Vicomte de Comborn & his first wife Marie de Limoges (-before 1284).  Vicomte de Comborn 1277. 

 

 

--- de la Roche (-before 1284).  The identity of the first husband of Lore de Chabanais is uncertain.  No primary source has yet been identified which states his name.  The only source so far found which indicates his family origin is the record of the 1503 hearing relating to the dispute over the inheritance of the county of Bigorre, which states that "dame Lore sa seur, fille…de…dame Hélys et Jordain de Chabannoys" succeeded "Eschivat" as comtesse de Bigorre and that she bequeathed the county to "messire Aymery de la Roche son filz"[85].  This document is of course extremely late.  Nevertheless, the other genealogical details which it contains seem accurate, and none of them appears to have been challenged at the time by the king of France (the defendant in the 1503 lawsuit) according to the contemporary report of the hearing.  The question is, how to interpret the name "de la Roche"?  There appear to three possibilities:

(1) A connection with the Rochechouart family.  Europäische Stammtafeln names Lore’s first husband "Simon de Rochechouart, son of Aimery [IX] Vicomte de Rochechouart"[86].  This cannot be correct as it is demonstrated satisfactorily in the document LIMOUSIN that Simon, son of Aimery [IX], was archbishop of Bordeaux.  The speculation is presumably based on the information in the following document: "Lore vicomtesse de Turenne dame de Chabanais" declared herself "tutrice des enfants de feu Aimery de Rochechouart, damoiseau, son neveu", when arranging the marriage of Simon de Rochechouart [son of Aimery [XI] Vicomte de Rochechouart] to her own grand-daughter, by charter dated 11 Dec 1304, the same document naming “Aimery et Jean“ as the children of “la dite dame vicomtesse[87].  The only surviving reference to this document is a summary in French made in the mid-19th century by General de Rochechouart in his history of the Rochechouart family.  He cites the original (presumably in Latin) in the “archives de la vicomté de Rochechouart, liasse AA”, which has not been traced.  If "feu Aimery de Rochechouart" correctly records this individual’s name, the chronology dictates that he was Vicomte Aimery [XI], in which case Lore’s husband would have been --- de Rochechouart, son of Aimery [IX] Vicomte de Rochechouart & his wife [--- de Mortemart].  There are two main difficulties with this hypothesis.  Firstly, in 1304 Aimery [XI]‘s children would have been too old to have needed Lore as their "tutrice".  Secondly, the conclusion is unsatisfactory from a chronological point of view as the children of Aimery [IX] must have been born in the early years of the 13th century, meaning that her first husband would have been considerably older than Lore. 

(2) A member of the Rochefoucauld family (see the document ANGOULÊME/LA MARCHE/PERIGORD), --- de la Roche/de la Rochefoucauld, son of ---, although no precise individual can be identified in that family as the possible first husband of Lore de Chabanais on the basis of information currently available.  There appear to be two possibilities.  Firstly, Aimery [I] Seigneur de la Rochefoucauld (died 1249 or after) and his wife Letice de Parthenay had a son Aimery who, according to Père Anselme, died childless[88].  The reliability of Père Anselme’s statement is not known.  Secondly, Guy [VI] de la Rochefoucauld and his wife Agnes de Rochechouart (daughter of Vicomte Aimery [X]) had younger sons whose descents are not recorded by Père Anselme.  If the first husband of Lore de Chabanais was of a similar age to his wife, the sons of Guy [VI] represent the more likely possibility.  Two points appear to favour the Rochefoucauld case.  Firstly, the name "Letice" was given to Lore’s daughter (although the primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified, see below).  Secondly, it is more likely that Lore was appointed “tutrice” of the children of her deceased son Aimery.  However, the Rochefoucauld hypothesis presents two difficulties:

Firstly, the precise relationship between Lore de Chabanais and the Rochechouart family, which as noted in the 1304 document required dispensation for the marriage between Lore’s grand-daughter and Simon de Rochechouart.  It appears unlikely that a dispensation would have been granted if Lore’s husband was descended from Agnes de Rochechouart as the family relationship would have been too close. 

Secondly, the existence of a cumulative series of errors in General de Rochechouart’s summary of the 11 Dec 1304 document:

- the name “Rochechouart” applied to “feu Aimery” instead of “Rochefoucauld”. 

- either “son neveu” instead of “son fils” applied to the same person or (bearing in mind that “neveu” could be a translation of “nepos” meaning either nephew or grandson) “son neveu” instead of “ses petits-enfants”. 

- the children of Lore being named “Aimery...” not “ledit Aimery...”, when Lore herself is called “la dite dame vicomtesse” in that part of the summary, which suggests that two different individuals called Aimery may have been named in the document. 

(3) A completely different as yet unidentified family.  The name “La Roche” was in medieval times attributed to other families, including for example La Roche-Saint-Maure and La Roche-Aymon in the Limousin area.  In the same case, similar difficulties relating to the 1304 document would apply as are discussed above relating to case (2). 

Given the difficulties with each of these three cases, it appears difficult to conclude that any case is obviously more attractive than the others.

i)          [SIMON [IV] (-1331 or after).  The chronology of the sources cited for Simon [IV] suggests that there may be a missing generation in this family.  It appears unlikely that the son of a couple married in [1238] would testify in 1331.  Simon de Lezay shared property with "Hugues de Lezay seigneur des Marais son oncle" by charter dated 1299[141].  Père Anselme states that the testament of "Simon de Lezay" is dated "le samedy après la Purification" in 1331 but cites no source[142].]

E.      SEIGNEURS de LUSIGNAN

 

 

Painter notes that the castle of Lusign an "stood on the western bank of the river Vonne, a tributary of the Clain, about twenty miles southwest of Poitiers", commenting that all the possessions of Hugues [IV] de Lusignan "except the estates around the town of Saint-Maixent could have been enclosed in a circle with a radius of fifteen miles centering in Lusignan" and that "he was essentially a local potentate"[154].  The first two generations of the Lusignan family, shown below, are known only from references in contemporary or near contemporary chronicles.  Other members of the family can be identified from 11th century cartularies but their precise family relationships cannot be established beyond all doubt.  Hugues IV "le Brun" Seigneur de Lusignan is the first member of the family about whom anything is known besides his name.  Charters issued by the Lusignan family are also included in the cartulary of the abbey of Noaillé, which has not yet been consulted[155]

 

 

HUGUES [I] "Venator/le Veneur".  The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent records the death in 1110 of "Hugo [de Leziniaco] filius Hugonis Bruni", providing his ancestry "qui fuit Albi, qui fuit Cari, qui fuit Hugonis Venatoris"[156], although this text appears to omit a generation in the descent. 

m ---.  The name of Hugues's wife is not known. 

Hugues [I] & his wife had one child: 

1.         HUGUES [II] "Carus/le Cher" .  The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent names "Hugonis Kari" as builder of "castrum Liziniacum…primus castrum" and father of "Hugonis Albi"[157]m ---.  The name of Hugues's wife is not known.  Hugues [II] & his wife had one child:

a)         HUGUES [III] "Albus" de Lusignan (-[1012])The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent names "Hugonis Kari" as builder of "castrum Liziniacum…primus castrum" and father of "Hugonis Albi"[158]Seigneur de Lusignan.  "Gaulterius cognomento Granerius et uxor eius Anna, Alba cognominata" donated "ecclesiam Sancti Vicentii de Masels" to St Cyprien, Poitiers by charter dated to [1004/20], subscribed by "Hugonis Albi, de cujus casamento erat…"[159]m ([967]) [ARSENDE], daughter of [--- de Vivonne & his wife ---].  "Ugo Liziniacensis domnus" donated property to St Cyprien, Poitiers by charter dated to [1012/18], subscribed by "Arsendis matris eius"[160], although it is not known with certainty that this document relates to her son Hugues [IV].  An indication of her possible family origin is provided by the manuscript, entitled "Conventus inter Comitem et Ugonem" by Besly, which records an agreement between "comes Pictavorum et præsul Gislebertus" (on the one part) and "Ioscelino avunculo Hugoni" (on the other), regarding the transfer of "castro…Vicredoni" to the latter after the death of the bishop, and after the death of both the first parties an agreement between "comes" and "episcopo Isemberto et Ugoni" transferred a half interest in the castle to the latter[161].  If "avunculo" in this document is interpreted strictly, Joscelin was the maternal uncle of Hugues.  Duguet suggests[162] that these were the same persons as "Gauzscelini, Rosce uxoris sue…Ugonis nepotis Gauszelini" who witnessed the charter dated to [1004/15] under which "Gaufredus et uxor sua Oda" donated "alodium suum in villa Batrezia in vicaria Vicodonense" to Poitiers Saint-Cyprien[163].  Hugues [III] & his wife had one child: 

i)          HUGUES [IV] "Brunus/le Brun" de Lusignan (-[1025/32])The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent names "Hugonis Bruni" as "castrum Liziniacum…domini" and son of "Hugonis Albi"[164]Seigneur de Lusignan

-         see below

 

 

HUGUES [IV] "le Brun" de Lusignan, son of HUGUES [III] "le Blanc" Seigneur de Lusignan & his wife Arsende --- (-[1025/32]).  The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent names "Hugonis Bruni" as "castrum Liziniacum…domini" and son of "Hugonis Albi"[165]Seigneur de Lusignan.  "Ugo Liziniacensis domnus" donated property to St Cyprien, Poitiers by charter dated [1012/18], subscribed by "Arsendis matris eius"[166].  "Wilelmus Pictavorum comes et dux Aquitanorum…filius Guillelmi comitis" [Guillaume V Duke of Aquitaine] granted revenue to "militi meo…Ugoni", to compensate him for the loss of revenue from a tax imposed on the town of Saint-Maixent, by charter dated to [1023/26][167].  An undated charter, dated to [1030], records a final agreement between Guillaume V Duke of Aquitaine and “Hugone Chiliarcum” [Hugues [IV] Seigneur de Lusignan] settling long-standing disputes (see below for a summary of the marriage negotiations for Hugues which formed part of settlement proposals)[168].  The document records the territorial ambitions of "Hugone Chiliarchum" in "castro…Vicredoni…castrum Coacus…Kaziaco…castrum Malavallis…Malè…Aspremundo castro…castrum Gentiaco…" {[Vicredonus], Couhé, Chizé, Malvau, Melle, [Aspremont], Gençay}.  It also records that Hugues [IV] died a year after his final agreement with Duke Guillaume.  Painter suggests that his death should be dated to some time between 1025 and 1032[169]

m AUDEARDE, daughter of ---.  "Hugo Liziniacensis" donated property to St Cyprien by charter dated [1025] "sub testimonio Hildeardis uxoris sue et infantum suorum Hugonis et Rorgonis, Walterii prepositi et Belielini filii eius"[170].  The naming of Audéarde's grandson, Jourdain, suggests a connection with the family of Chabanais.  In addition, the cartulary of Lesterps states that Jourdain [III] de Chabanais was killed at "Casech", most likely Chizé, which had been taken by Hugues [IV] Seigneur de Lusignan in order to obtain Vivonne.  Duguet records that the name "Audeard" is found in the Chabanais family, a first cousin of Jourdain [III] of this name being a nun at Saint-Sylvain de la Mongie in 1010[171].  There are indications of a plan for Hugues [IV] to marry --- de Thouars, daughter of Raoul [I] Vicomte de Thouars & his wife Aremburgis [Aisceline] ---.  An undated charter, dated to [1030], records a final agreement between Guillaume V Duke of Aquitaine and “Hugone Chiliarcum” [Hugues [IV] Seigneur de Lusignan] settling long-standing disputes, reciting that “Savaricus...vicecomes” had taken from Hugues land which Duke Guillaume had granted, that after Savary’s death a settlement was proposed with “Radulfo fratri supra dicto mortuo” involving Hugues marrying “vicecomiti Radulfo...filiam eius”, that Duke Guillaume had counter-proposed that Hugues should receive "de castro Parteniaco Ioscelinus…honorem et mulierem eius", that after Raoul’s death a new agreement was reached “cum Josfredum vicecomite...nepos...Radulfo[172].  Imbert indicates that the marriage between Hugues [IV] and the daughter of Vicomte Raoul did take place[173].  However, it is unclear from the charter dated to [1030] that this is correct.  In any case, the dispute dragged on so long without resolution that it would not be surprising if Hugues had married another person in the meantime.  The conclusion is that there is no certainty that Audéarde, wife of Hugues [IV], was the daughter of Raoul [I] Vicomte de Thouars. 

Hugues IV & his wife had [three] children:

1.         HUGUES [V] "le Pieux" de Lusignan (-killed in battle Lusignan 8 Oct 1060).  "Hugo Liziniacensis" donated property to St Cyprien by charter dated [1025] "sub testimonio Hildeardis uxoris sue et infantum suorum Hugonis et Rorgonis, Walterii prepositi et Belielini filii eius"[174].  "…Ugonis et Rorgonis fratrum…" subscribed the charter dated to [1031/46, maybe [1032]] under which "Gauterius et uxor sua Anna" donated "alodium suum…Montem Gaudonum…uno milario distans de Liziniaco" to Poitiers Saint-Cyprien[175]Seigneur de Lusignan et de Couhé.  "...Ugonis de Liziniaco..." subscribed the charter dated 1047 under which "Goffredus comes et uxor mea Agnes" founded Notre-Dame de Saintes and donated numerous properties[176].  The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent records that "Goffredus dux Pictavorum" made war against "Hugone Lizianici" who was killed in the siege of his castle "1060 VIII Id Oct"[177]m (separated) as her first husband, ALMODIS de la Marche, daughter of BERNARD Comte de la Marche & his wife Amelia --- (-murdered 16 Oct 1071).  The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent records the marriage of "Almodim…sororem Audeberti comitis de Marcha" and "Pontius comes Tolosanus", specifying that she was previously the wife of "Hugo Pius de Liziniaco" from whom she was separated for consanguinity and that afterwards she married "Raimundo Barcinonensi"[178].  She married secondly ([1045] repudiated 1053 after 29 Jun) Pons Comte de Toulouse.  "Poncius Tolosanus urbis comes" recorded the union of the abbey of Moissac with the abbey of Cluny, with the advice of "uxoris meæ Adalmodis comitissæ", by charter dated 29 Jun 1053[179]She married thirdly (1053) as his third wife, Ramón Berenguer "el Viejo" Conde de Barcelona.  Hugues [V] & his wife had three children:

a)         HUGUES [VI] "le Diable" de Lusignan (-in France 1110)The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent names "Hugo" as son and successor of "Hugone Lizianici" & his wife[180]Seigneur de Lusignan et de Couhé.

b)         JOURDAIN .  "Hugo vicarius de castro Vicvione et filii mei…Bartholomeus et Giraldus" donated "vicariam…in villa…Condato" to Nouaillé, in memory of "meo…filio Hugoni…defuncto", by charter dated to [1060/78], witnessed by "Hugonis de Liziniaco et fratri suo Iordani, Loni et fratri suo Seguino de Mortemaro castro…"[181].  The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent records that twin sons were born to "Hugo Pius de Liziniaco" & his wife[182], but it is not known whether the second son was Jourdain.  1060/78. 

c)         MELISENDE .  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the Chronique de Maillezais which records in 1118 “V Id Aug” that “comes [Willelmus]” fought “Symone Partenacensi et avunculo suo Ugone” [presumably indicating Hugues [VII] Seigneur de Lusignan, who would have been Simon [II]’s first cousin][183]The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.  m SIMON [I] de Parthenay, son of GUILLAUME Seigneur de Parthenay & his wife Arengarde --- (-[1075]). 

2.         RORGON (-after [1043/48]).  "Hugo Liziniacensis" donated property to St Cyprien by charter dated [1025] "sub testimonio Hildeardis uxoris sue et infantum suorum Hugonis et Rorgonis, Walterii prepositi et Belielini filii eius"[184].  Monk 1025/[1043/48].  "…Ugonis et Rorgonis fratrum…" subscribed the charter dated to [1031/46, maybe [1032]] under which "Gauterius et uxor sua Anna" donated "alodium suum…Montem Gaudonum…uno milario distans de Liziniaco" to Poitiers Saint-Cyprien[185]

3.         [RENAUD .  "Wilelmo duce et Josfredo vicecomite Toarcensis castri et uxori sue…Aynors, Raynaldo quondam milite Liziniacensi" donated property to Saint-Maixent by charter dated [26 Mar 1027/31 Jan 1030] subscribed by "Rainaldi, Raynaldi filii sui"[186].  Although no reference is made in this document to the parentage of Renaud, from a chronological point of view it appears that Hugues [IV] is the only possibility for his father, assuming that he was a member of the family of the Seigneurs de Lusignan.  m ---.  The name of Renaud's wife is not known.  Renaud & his wife had one child:

a)         RENAUD .  "Wilelmo duce et Josfredo vicecomite Toarcensis castri et uxori sue…Aynors, Raynaldo quondam milite Liziniacensi" donated property to Saint-Maixent by charter dated [26 Mar 1027/31 Jan 1030] subscribed by "Rainaldi, Raynaldi filii sui"[187].]

The precise relationship between the following and the main Lusignan family has not yet been established. 

1.         GEOFFROY de Lusignanm ---.  One child: 

a)         [VALENTIA de Lusignan .  A fragmentary chronicle of the dukes of Aquitaine records that "Hugonem de Podio-fagi" later married "Valentiæ", daughter of "Galfridi de Lesignan", and names "Galfridus de Podio-fagi et Rainaldus" as their children[234].  The difficulties associated with the fabrication of all or parts of the reconstruction of the Puy-du-Fou family are discussed in the document AQUITAINE DUKES, including the possibility that this fragmentary chronicle formed part of the fabrication.  Her parentage and marriage has not yet been corroborated by another primary source.  m as his second wife, HUGUES du Puy-du-Fou, son of GUILLAUME du Puy-du-Fou & his wife Adela --- (-after 1137).]    

 

 

HUGUES [VIII] "le Brun" de Lusignan, son of HUGUES [VII] "le Brun" Seigneur de Lusignan & his first wife --- (-[in Palestine after 1164]).  "Hugo Brunus de Liziniaco" recognised himself as the vassal of Saint-Maixent for the lands held from the abbey with the consent of "uxore mea Sarracena et filiis meis Hugone et Guillelmo" by charter dated 1106[235].  “Ugo Brunus de Liziniaco…filii mei Ugo de Liziniaco, Willelmus de Englia, Rorgo, Simo de Lozaico, Walerannus” were forgiven for their injustices against “ecclesiam S. Petri Pictavensis” (La Celle, outside Poitiers) by charter dated 1144[236]Seigneur de Lusignan.  "Ugo de Liziniaco" renounced rights over "terram…Ioarena" in favour of Nouaillé by undated charter, subscribed by "…Burgundie uxoris sue, Ugonis filii sui, Roberti filii sui, Gaufredi filii sui, Petri filii sui…"[237].  "Hugo Brunus comes Marchie", on leaving for Jerusalem, confirmed the grant of rights to the abbey of Châtelliers made "in 1171" by "Hugo Lezenniaci castelli" by charter dated 1218[238].  The original grant was more likely dated to before 1163 as no other evidence has been found that Hugues [VIII] made a second journey to Jerusalem in 1171.  William of Tyre names him "Hugo de Liniziaco senior…cognominatus Brunus" when he arrived on pilgrimage in Jerusalem in 1163 with "Gaufridus cognominatus Martel" brother of the Count of Angoulême[239].  William of Tyre records that he combined forces with Raymond III Count of Tripoli, Konstantinos Kalamános, and Bohémond III Prince of Antioch to repel the attack by Nur ed-Din on the castle of Krak in Sep 1163[240].  Hugues joined the same group in Aug 1164 to relieve another attack on Harenc, but was captured in an ambush at Artah, together with the other leaders, and taken bound to Aleppo[241].  A letter from Aimery Patriarch of Antioch to Louis VII King of France, dated 1164, records that "Hugo de Lesiniaco" was captured in the battle to capture "castellum…Harenc"[242].  According to Edbury, he never regained his freedom[243]

m (before 1147) BOURGOGNE de Rancon, daughter of GEOFFROY [III] de Rancon Seigneur de Taillebourg & his wife --- (-after 11 Apr 1169).  "Burgunna uxor Ugoni de Lezinan" donated land "juxta Barra Marian" to Absie, with the consent of "Ugone marito suo et Gaufrido de Rancone patre suo", by undated charter[244].  Painter states that her marriage portion was the castle of Vouvant[245].  "Ugo de Liziniaco" renounced rights over "terram…Ioarena" in favour of Nouaillé by undated charter, subscribed by "…Burgundie uxoris sue, Ugonis filii sui, Roberti filii sui, Gaufredi filii sui, Petri filii sui…"[246]

Hugues [VIII] & his wife had seven children:

1.         HUGUES [IX] de Lusignan (-before 16 Mar 1169)"Ugo de Liziniaco" renounced rights over "terram…Ioarena" in favour of Nouaillé by undated charter, subscribed by "…Burgundie uxoris sue, Ugonis filii sui, Roberti filii sui, Gaufredi filii sui, Petri filii sui…"[247].  An undated charter of "Hugo de Lesignan filius Burgundiæ" records to his donation to the abbey of l'Absie with the consent of "patre meo Ugone Lezigniaci"[248].  "Hugues le Brun" donated property, for the souls of "sa femme Aurengardis, son fils Hugues, sa fille Ainordis et son frère Geoffroy", by charter dated 12 Nov 1166[249].  "Hugo Brunus dominus Lizinniaci" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron, with the consent of "Gaufridus frater ipsius, Simon Brunus, Rorgo et Galerandus fratres eius…", by charter dated [1167][250].  "Gaufridus de Lizigniaco" donated property to the abbey of l'Absie for the souls of "fratris mei Hugonis" with the consent of "Burgundie matre mea" dated "primie die post sepulturam Hugonis fratris mei…1169"[251]m [firstly] ORENGARDE, daughter of ---.  "Hugues le Brun" donated property, for the souls of "sa femme Aurengardis, son fils Hugues, sa fille Ainordis et son frère Geoffroy", by charter dated 12 Nov 1166[252].  [m secondly [as her first husband,] DOUCE, daughter of --- (-after 1168).]  A charter dated 1168 records a donation of property to the Knights Hospitallers by "Hugo de Lusignan, Dulcia uxor et Alamanda filia eiusdem"[253].  This assumes that "Hugo de Lusignan" in this document can be identified with Hugues [IX] de Lusignan.  Hugues [IX]’s widow may have married secondly, as his second wife, Guillaume Maingot Seigneur de Surgères.  This second marriage is suggested by the document, dated (by Delisle) to [1209], under which "comes Augi" (Raoul de Lusignan "d’Exoudun" Comte d’Eu, see below) pledged his lands for his homage to Philippe II King of France, and that of "fratres sui comes Marchie et vicecomes Castri Eraudi"[254].  Assuming that this document is correctly dated, "vicecomes Castri Eraudi" at the time was Hugues de Surgères.  A second marriage of Raoul’s mother would be the only way in which Hugues de Surgères could be correctly called "frater" of Hugues [X] de Lusignan and Raoul de Lusignan Comte d’Eu.  If Orengarde/Douce can correctly be identified as the [second] wife of Hugues [IX], and mother of Raoul, it is likely that she was heiress of Exoudun which was transmitted to Raoul.]  Hugues [IX] & his [first] wife had [two] children: 

a)         HUGUES [X] "le Brun" de Lusignan (-Damietta 5 Nov 1219)"Hugues le Brun" donated property, for the souls of "sa femme Aurengardis, son fils Hugues, sa fille Ainordis et son frère Geoffroy", by charter dated 12 Nov 1166[255].  His parentage is confirmed indirectly by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Radulfum de Esselduno qui fuit comes Augi" as "Hugo Brunus fratrem natu maiorem" (presumably an error for "minorem"), adding that "horum pater Hugo de Lisegnen" had "fratres…Gaufridum, Henricum regem Cypri et Guidonem regem Ierosolimorum"[256].  If the charter dated 1168 quoted above correctly refers to Hugues [IX] de Lusignan, the absence of Hugues [X] from the document suggests that he must have been the younger child of his parents, maybe born after the date of the charter.  He succeeded his grandfather in 1173 as Seigneur de LusignanComte de la Marche: "Hugo Brun com March et Rad com Augi" swore homage to John King of England, dated 28 Jan 1200[257].  "Hugo Brunus comes Marchie, dominus Lezignaci et Coiaci" renounced rights over income belonging to Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, claimed by "avus meus…dominus Hugo de Lezigniaco" but relinquished by him before leaving for Jerusalem, with the consent of "filio meo Hugone Bruno quem tunc unicum habebam", by charter dated 23 Feb 1200[258]

b)         AINORDIS"Hugues le Brun" donated property, for the souls of "sa femme Aurengardis, son fils Hugues, sa fille Ainordis et son frère Geoffroy", by charter dated 12 Nov 1166[259]

Hugues [IX] & his [second] wife had [two] children:

c)         [ALAMANDA (-after 1168).  "Hugo de Lusignan, Dulcia uxor et Alamanda filia eiusdem" donated property to the Knights Hospitallers by charter dated 1168[260], which, as noted above, may refer to Hugues [IX] de Lusignan.] 

d)         RAOUL de Lusignan "d'Exoudun" ([1169]-Melle 1 May 1219, bur Exoudun).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Radulfum de Esselduno qui fuit comes Augi" as "Hugo Brunus fratrem natu maiorem" (presumably an error for "minorem"), adding that "horum pater Hugo de Lisegnen" had "fratres…Gaufridum, Henricum regem Cypri et Guidonem regem Ierosolimorum"[261].  "Maiorem" is presumably an error in this source for "minorem", or represents a transcription error: no scenario has been identified in which Raoul being the older brother is compatible with the other information relating to the Lusignan family.  Raoul was not named in his father’s charter dated 12 Nov 1166, suggesting that he was born later.  As the charter dated 1168 names Douce as wife of "Hugo de Lusignan", who can probably be identified as Hugues [IX], it is likely that Raoul from this supposed second marriage, after his supposed sister Alamanda.  If this hypothesis is correct, Raoul must have been born in 1169, maybe posthumously.  According to the Complete Peerage, "Esselduno" was "Exoudun, Deux-Sèvres, arrondissement Melle, canton La Mothe-Saint-Héray" not "Issoudun, Indre"[262], although the editor of the Monumenta Germanica series states that the place was "Issoudun, départ. Indre"[263].  Painter states that Exoudun was "a village to the southeast of St Maixent"[264].  He succeeded as Comte d'Eu, by right of his wife.  The date of the marriage and Raoul’s succession as count is uncertain.  It must have taken place before 1194 when "comes de Auco" paid scutage on land in Sussex[265].  "Radulfus Augensium comes" confirmed donations to Tréport, made by "antecessores mei comes…Robertus et Guillelmus filius eius et Henricus avus Henrici junioris et Johannes pater eiusdem Henrici et idem H.", by charter dated 1191[266], indicating that the marriage took place some years earlier assuming that this document is correctly dated.  The Annals of Burton record that “Warinus de Clapiun senescallus Normanniæ” besieged “castellum de Denecurt”, on the orders of John King of England, adding that King Richard had given the castle to “Radulpho de Ysoudun comiti de Aueo, fratri Hugonis le Brun”, but that the siege was lifted by Philippe King of France before the arrival of King John[267].  The same passage is given by Roger of Hoveden[268].  "Hugo Brun com March et Rad com Augi" swore homage to John King of England, dated 28 Jan 1200[269].  Ralph of Coggeshall records that in 1202 John King of England made war against "comitem de Marchis…Hugonem cognomento Brun et fratrem eius comitem de Eu" who had rebelled against him "pro filia comitis Engolismi, quam Hugo prædictus prius affidaverat"[270]

3.         GEOFFROY de Lusignan (-1216).  "Ugo de Liziniaco" renounced rights over "terram…Ioarena" in favour of Nouaillé by undated charter, subscribed by "…Burgundie uxoris sue, Ugonis filii sui, Roberti filii sui, Gaufredi filii sui, Petri filii sui…"[272].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Gaufridum, Henricum regem Cypri et Guidonem regem Ierosolimorum" as brothers of "Hugo de Lisegnen"[273].  "Hugo Brunus dominus Lizinniaci" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron, with the consent of "Gaufridus frater ipsius, Simon Brunus, Rorgo et Galerandus fratres eius…", by charter dated [1167][274].  "Gaufridus de Lizigniaco" donated property to the abbey of l'Absie for the souls of "fratris mei Hugonis" with the consent of "Burgundie matre mea" dated "primie die post sepulturam Hugonis fratris mei…1169"[275].  William of Tyre (Continuator) specifies that Geoffroy was older than his brother Guy Lord of Cyprus, when recording his nomination as heir to his brother[276].  With his brother Guy, he rebelled against Henry II King of England, his suzerain in Poitou, in 1173[277].  Ralph de Diceto’s Abbreviationes Chronicorum record in 1188 that “Gaufridus de Liziniaco” killed “familiarissimum Ricardum comitem[278].  "Gaufridus de Lezeniaco, Aimericus, regius conestabulus…" subscribed the charter dated 19 Nov 1189 under which "Guido rex Hierosolymitanus" confirmed privileges to the Pisans[279].  Brother of Guy King of Jerusalem, he took part in the attack on Acre led by his brother in 1189[280].  Seigneur de Vouvent, de Mervent et de Montcontour, by right of his first wife.  Richard I King of England appointed him Governor of Jaffa and Caesarea in 1191[281].  His brother Guy Lord of Cyprus bequeathed his authority in Cyprus to Geoffroy, but the latter had returned to France and the Franks in Cyprus summoned their younger brother Amaury in his place[282].  "Goffridus de Lezignem dominus Montiscantorii" donated property to the abbey of l'Absie, naming "Ugonem filium meum" and with the consent of "domina Eustachia uxor mea et Goffridus filius meus adhuc infantulus", by charter dated May 1200[283].  Ralph of Coggeshall records that "…Gaufridum de Lucinan et Hugonem Brunum et Andream de Caveni et vicecomitem de Castro-Eraldi et Reimundum Tuarz et Savarium de Mauleun et Hugonem Baugii" were captured, together with "Arturum nepotem nostrum" [Arthur Duke of Brittany] after they rebelled and attempted to capture "castellum de Mirabel" where "regina Alienor avia Arturi" was living, dated to 1202[284].  The Chronicon Bernardi Iterii records the death in 1216 of "Gaufre de Lesina"[285]m [firstly] HUMBERGE de Limoges, daughter of ADEMAR [V] Vicomte de Limoges & his wife Sarah of Cornwall ([1160/80]-[before 1200]).  The Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis names "Guidonem, Ademarum et Guillermum…Peregrinus…filiam Margaretam…Aquiliam…Humbergam …Mariam" as children of "Ademarum" and his wife "Sarram", specifying that Humberge married "Gaufredo de Lesigniaco"[286].  The chronology of Humberge’s life is difficult to determine.  However, considering the dates of her parents and the other members of this family, it appears unlikely that she was born later than [1160/80].  This would suggest that she must have been the first wife of her husband and died before 1200, when he is named in a charter with another wife and young son.  m [secondly] (before [1199]) EUSTACHIE Chabot Dame de Vouvent et de Mervent, daughter of [THIBAUT [III] Chabot & his wife Marguerite Loubet] (-after May 1200).  "Eustachia uxor mea et Goffridus filius meus adhuc infantulus" consented to the donation by "Goffridus de Lezignem dominus Montiscantorii" to the abbey of l'Absie dated May 1200, which also names "Ugonem filium meum"[287].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.   Sandret states that Eustachie was the daughter of Thibaut [II] Chabot and his wife Marguerite, but cites no primary source which confirms that this statement is correct[288].  Père Anselme notes her supposed father and grandfather Sebrand [I] Chabot as “Seigneurs de Vouvent”[289].  No charter has been identified which names them as such, and indeed the only source so far identified which associates Vouvent with the Chabot family is the highly dubious fragmentary chronicle of the dukes of Aquitaine (concerning the supposed Puy-du-Fou family) which names "Sigebertus Chabot de Volvento" when recording his supposed marriage (see above).  Geoffroy [I] & [his first wife] had one child: 

a)         HUGUES (-after May 1200).  "Goffridus de Lezignem dominus Montiscantorii" names "Ugonem filium meum" in his donation to the abbey of l'Absie by charter dated May 1200[290].  The charter does not specify that Hugues gave his consent to the donation, in contrast to his younger brother Geoffroy.  Hugues must also have been considerably older than Geoffroy [II], the latter being described in the document as "adhuc infantulus".  This suggests that he was born from the first marriage of Geoffroy [I], or else was illegitimate. 

Geoffroy [I] & his second wife had three children:

b)         GEOFFROY [II] de Lusignan “la Grand’ Dent” (-[Jan 1247/1248], bur [Vouvent]).  "Eustachia uxor mea et Goffridus filius meus adhuc infantulus" consented to the donation by "Goffridus de Lezignem dominus Montiscantorii" to the abbey of l'Absie dated May 1200, which also names "Ugonem filium meum"[291].  The linking of the name of Geoffroy [II] in this document with "Eustachia uxor mea" suggests that she was his mother, especially as he is described as "adhuc infantulus".  He succeeded his father in 1224 as Seigneur de Vouvent et de Mervent.  Vicomte de Châtellerault, by right of his wife: “Gaufridus de Lizegnan” did homage to Louis VIII King of France for “vicecomitatu Castri Eraudi, qui provenit michi ex parte Clementie uxoris mee, filie Hugonis quondam vicecomitis Castri Eraudi” by charter dated May 1224[292].  "Gaufridus de Lezigniaco vicecomes Castri Ayraudi" donated property to Saint-Denis en Vaux by charter dated Mar 1228[293].  Henry III King of England ordered that "Galfridum de Lezyniaco" pledge "castra sua de Vovent et de Merevent", as well as the lands of "Emericum de Lezyniaco fratrem ipsius G", for loyal service, dated [Oct] 1230[294].  “Geoffreiz de Lezignen, sires de Vouvent et de Mairevent” donated property “aux frères de Munsignor Saint Ladre d’Ostremer”, for the souls of “mun bun père sire Geoffreys de Lezignen lo prodome et de ma dame Eustache ma bonne mere”, by charter dated 1234[295]Gaufridus de Lyzengniaco miles” acknowledged holding “castrum…Vovent…castrum…de Mervent” from Louis IX King of France, and "villam de Soubise, que est neptis mee", by charter dated 6 Jun 1242[296].  Seigneur de Sainte-Hermine.  The testament of Geoffroy names Audæ uxoris meæ…Arpino filio meo…Aaliz filiæ meæ et Borgoigne” and chooses his burial in the church of Notre-Dame de Vouvent[297]m firstly (before May 1224) CLEMENCE Vicomtesse de Châtellerault, daughter and heiress of HUGUES [III] Vicomte de Châtellerault & his wife Eustachie de Mauléon (-before 13 May 1239).  “Gaufridus de Lizegnan” did homage to Louis VIII King of France for “vicecomitatu Castri Eraudi, qui provenit michi ex parte Clementie uxoris mee, filie Hugonis quondam vicecomitis Castri Eraudi” by charter dated May 1224[298].  "G de Lezigniaco dominus Volventi et Maraventi" issued a charter dated "ante Pentecosto 1239" which records a prior donation by "nobilis mulier Clemencia vicecomitissa quondam Castri Eraudi uxor nostra defuncta"[299].  "Eustachia quondam vicecomitissa Castri Ayraudi, filia Radulfi de Maloleone bonæ memoriæ" donated property "in parrochia et in villa de Tessoele" to Absie, for the souls of "patris mei Radulfi de Maloleone, Aeliz matris meæ, Savarici fratris mei et Clemenciæ filiæ meæ", by charter dated Oct 1239[300].  An enquiry into "foresta de Moleria" records that "dominum Aymericum de Castro-Airaudi" held "Castri-Airaudi vicecomitatum" for "neptis sue" who later married "domini Gaufridi de Lezigniaco" and died "sine herede"[301]m secondly (before 1246) AUDE, daughter of --- (-after 1248).  The testament of Geoffroy names “Audæ uxoris meæ…Arpino filio meo…Aaliz filiæ meæ et Borgoigne[302].  Geoffroy [II] had three [illegitimate] children by an unknown mistress or mistresses:

i)          ARPIN (-after 1248).  The testament of Geoffroy names “Audæ uxoris meæ…Arpino filio meo…Aaliz filiæ meæ et Borgoigne[303].  Nothing in the document indicates that Aude was the children’s mother.  It is assumed that Geoffroy’s children were illegitimate as their father’s properties Vouvent and Mervent did not pass to them. 

ii)         AELIS (-after 1248).  The testament of Geoffroy names “Audæ uxoris meæ…Arpino filio meo…Aaliz filiæ meæ et Borgoigne[304].  Nothing in the document indicates that Aude was the children’s mother.  It is assumed that Geoffroy’s children were illegitimate as their father’s properties Vouvent and Mervent did not pass to them. 

iii)        BOURGOGNE (-after 1248).  The testament of Geoffroy names “Audæ uxoris meæ…Arpino filio meo…Aaliz filiæ meæ et Borgoigne[305].  Nothing in the document indicates that Aude was the children’s mother.  It is assumed that Geoffroy’s children were illegitimate as their father’s properties Vouvent and Mervent did not pass to them. 

c)         AIMERY (-[Oct 1230/1242]).  Henry III King of England ordered that "Galfridum de Lezyniaco" pledge "castra sua de Vovent et de Merevent", as well as the lands of "Emericum de Lezyniaco fratrem ipsius G", for loyal service, dated [Oct] 1230[306]

d)         GUILLAUME de Lusignan dit de Valence (-[1226/30], bur Abbaye de la Grénetière)The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Farcinet cites a charter dated 1230 which names "Marquise de Mauléon vidua quondam uxor Wilelmi de Valentia defuncti" and also records that the couple’s son Guillaume died young, all three being buried in the abbey of la Grénetière[307].  Seigneur de Mouchamps.  [m firstly ---.  Guillaume’s daughter Valence is not named as one of the heirs of Savary de Mauléon in the various documents concerning the dispute between his heirs which followed his death and the death of his son Raoul.  This suggests that Valence was born from an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage of Guillaume de Lusignan.  The dates of death recorded for Guillaume and his known wife Marquise de Mauléon excludes a second marriage after Guillaume’s death.]  m [secondly] MARQUISE de Mauléon, daughter of SAVARY de Mauléon & his first wife Bellassez [de Pareds] (-[1230/26 Jul 1231], bur Abbaye de la Grénetière).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  1226/30.  Farcinet cites a charter dated 1230 which names Marquise de Mauléon "vidua quondam uxor Wilelmi de Valentia defuncti" and also records that the couple’s son Guillaume died young, all three being buried in the abbey of la Grénetière[308].  Marquise presumably predeceased her father as she is not named as party to the lawsuit between her sister Alix and their half-brother Raoul concerning their father’s inheritance[309].  Guillaume & his [first] wife had one child: 

i)          VALENCE de Lusignan (-after 13 Feb 1262)The primary source which confirms her parentage precisely has not yet been identified but it is indicated by the documents quoted below.  As noted above, her absence from the documents relating to the succession of the Mauléon family suggests that Valence was not the daughter of Marquise de Mauléon.  Dame de Soubise et de Vouvent.  “Gaufridus de Lyzengniaco miles” acknowledged holding “castrum…Vovent…castrum…de Mervent” from Louis IX King of France, and "villam de Soubise, que est neptis mee", by charter dated 6 Jun 1242[310].  “Hugo dictus Archiepiscopus dominus Parteniaci et Volventi” gave homage to “Alfonso filio regis Francie, comiti Pictavensi” for "castris nostris Parteniaci, Volventi, Maireventi, Sobisie" by charter dated Sep 1248[311]Hugues l’Archevesque sire de Partenay de Vouvant et de Mervant et Valence sa femme” agreed to execute the testament of “feu Geoffroy de Lezignant çai en arrieres seignor de Vouvant et de Mervant” by charter dated Jun 1250[312].  "Hugo dictus Archiepiscopus, dominus Partiniaci, Volventi et Montis Cantoris" renounced rights over "terra et territorio et hominibus de Frontiniaco" in favour of Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, naming "dominam Valentiam uxorem suam, dominam Partinicai, Volventi et Montis Cantoris", by charter dated 13 Feb 1262[313]m (before Sep 1248) HUGUES [II] l’Archévêque Seigneur de Parthenay, son of GUILLAUME [V] l’Archëvêque Seigneur de Parthenay & his wife Amable de Rancon (-11 Apr 1271). 

Guillaume & his [second] wife had one child: 

ii)         GUILLAUME de Lusignan (-young, bur Abbaye de la Grénetière).  Farcinet cites a charter dated 1230 which names Marquise de Mauléon "vidua quondam uxor Wilelmi de Valentia defuncti" and also records that the couple’s son Guillaume died young, all three being buried in the abbey of la Grénetière[314].  

4.         PIERRE de Lusignan (-after Dec 1174).  "Ugo de Liziniaco" renounced rights over "terram…Ioarena" in favour of Nouaillé by undated charter, subscribed by "…Burgundie uxoris sue, Ugonis filii sui, Roberti filii sui, Gaufredi filii sui, Petri filii sui…"[315].  "…Petrus de Lezignan…" subscribed a charter dated Dec 1174 under which Raymond Count of Tripoli donated property to the Knights Hospitallers[316], although it is not certain that this refers to Pierre son of Hugues [VIII] de Lusignan. 

5.         AMAURY de Lusignan ([1145]-murdered Acre 1 Apr 1205).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Gaufridum, Henricum [error for Haimericum] regem Cypri et Guidonem regem Ierosolimorum" as brothers of "Hugo de Lisegnen"[317].  "…Aimericus de Lisenian…" subscribed a charter dated 13 Dec 1174 under which Baudouin IV King of Jerusalem donated property to the Knights Hospitallers[318], which appears to be the first mention of his name in the Levant.  Baudouin IV King of Jerusalem appointed him as Constable of Jerusalem in 1181[319].  He supported the rebellion of the Pisans at Tyre in May 1192, was arrested by Henri de Champagne King of Jerusalem, but retired to Jaffa on his release.  King Henri, considering that Amaury had thereby forfeited his office of Constable, appointed Jean of Ibelin as Constable in his place[320].  Amaury's younger brother Guy Lord of Cyprus had bequeathed his authority in Cyprus to their older brother Geoffroy de Lusignan but, as the latter had returned to France in [1192], the Franks in Cyprus summoned Amaury to succeed as Lord of Cyprus in 1194[321]The rivalry with the kingdom of Jerusalem was suspended when Henri de Champagne King of Jerusalem visited Cyprus in 1194, the new alliance being sealed by the betrothal of Amaury's three young sons to Queen Isabelle's three young daughters[322]Amaury did homage to Emperor Heinrich VI, through his ambassador Renier of Jebail, at Gelnhausen in Oct 1195, in return being recognised by the emperor as AMAURY I King of Cyprus.  He was crowned in Sep 1197 at Nicosia, where he did homage once more to the emperor's representative Konrad von Querfurt, Bishop of Hildesheim, who was present at the ceremony as Imperial Chancellor[323].  On the death of Henri de Champagne King of Jerusalem in Sep 1197, King Amaury was proposed by the German leaders, headed by Konrad von Wittelsbach Archbishop of Mainz, as the best candidate to become Queen Isabelle's fourth husband.  King Amaury arrived at Acre in Jan 1198, married Isabelle and was crowned with his wife a few days later as AMAURY II King of Jerusalem.  The two kingdoms were linked only by the person of the monarch, as each retained its own administrative identity[324].  After the collapse of the German crusade in early 1198, King Amaury opened negotiations with al-Adil (Saladin's brother) although the six year peace treaty was not signed until Sep 1204, under the terms of which Beirut, Sidon, Jaffa and Ramleh were transferred back to the kingdom of Jerusalem[325].  "Aymericus…Latinorum Jerusalem rex nonus et rex Cipri" donated property to the church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem by charter dated Mar 1201 which names "frater meus rex Guido"[326].  On the death of King Amaury in 1205, the two kingdoms of Jerusalem and Cyprus were separated once more.

6.         GUY de Lusignan (-1194 after 18 Aug, bur Nicosia)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Gaufridum, Henricum regem Cypri et Guidonem regem Ierosolimorum" as brothers of "Hugo de Lisegnen"[327].  William of Tyre names him son of "Hugonis Bruni" when recording his arrival in Palestine in [1179] and marriage[328].  While still living in France, Guy was proposed by his brother Amaury, who had by then already acquired a position of influence in the kingdom of Jerusalem, as the husband of Sibylle heiress of Jerusalem after the death of her first husband.  Guy arrived in Palestine in 1179, and was installed as Count of Jaffa and Ascalon on his marriage[329].  "Guido Joppensis et Ascalonitanus comes…" subscribed the charter dated 1 Mar 1181 under which Baudouin IV King of Jerusalem granted property to the abbot of Mount Tabor[330].  King Baudouin IV appointed him as regent of Jerusalem in 1182 after the king fell ill at Nazareth, although the king retained personal control over the city of Jerusalem.  Dissatisfied with his performance, the king deposed Guy from the regency 23 Mar 1183 after a quarrel and attempted to bar him from succession to the throne[331].  Guy retired to his counties of Jaffa and Ascalon, throwing off his allegiance to the crown.  King Baudouin seized Jaffa, but Guy continued to defy the king at Ascalon[332].  His wife Sibylle succeeded as Queen of Jerusalem in 1186 after the death of her infant son King Baudouin V.  After her own coronation, his wife crowned him as GUY I King of Jerusalem.  After Saladin's invasion of Galilee in summer 1187, the Christian army was defeated at Hattin 4 Jul 1187, where King Guy was captured.  He was kept in prison at Nablus, later at Lattakieh.  Saladin moved on to capture Ascalon in Sep 1187 and Jerusalem 2 Oct 1187[333].  Saladin released King Guy in Jul 1188, after he promised to abandon the kingdom (an oath he later declared invalid for having been made under duress), and he joined Queen Sibylle at Tripoli[334].  Guy marched from Tripoli to Tyre, hoping to resume control of what remained of the kingdom of Jerusalem, but was refused entry to the city by Corrado di Monferrato.  He made another unsuccessful attempt to enter Tyre in Apr 1189, with help from Pisan and Sicilian forces, but in Aug 1189 marched south to attack Acre[335].  After he was joined in the siege by Corrado di Monferrato, the pair settled their differences and Corrado agreed to recognise Guy as king while continuing to hold Tyre himself, together with Beirut and Sidon[336].  After his wife's death in 1190, King Guy's title to the crown was thrown into doubt.  Balian of Ibelin arranged the marriage of Guy's sister-in-law, Isabelle of Jerusalem, by then heir to the throne, to Corrado di Monferrato, but King Guy refused to abdicate.  After Acre finally capitulated to the Christian siege 12 Jul 1191[337], the European dignitaries decided that Guy should remain as king of Jerusalem for life, after which the crown would pass to Corrado di Monferrato, his wife Isabelle and their issue[338].  However, following further quarrels between the crusader leaders, King Richard called a council in Apr 1192 which decided that Corrado should replace Guy as king[339].  King Richard agreed to sell Cyprus to King Guy, providing a convenient way of removing him from the scene.  Although King Corrado was murdered at the end of April, his widow remarried within a week.  It appears that Guy became involved in a plot with the Pisans to seize Tyre[340], but he left the mainland for Cyprus in early May 1192, installing himself as Lord of Cyprus although he continued to claim the kingdom of Jerusalem until his death in late 1194[341].  Cyprus passed technically under the suzerainty of Emperor Heinrich VI in Feb 1194 when Richard I King of England swore allegiance to the emperor as part of the terms for his release from captivity, the island being considered at the time as an English possession[342].  The Chronicle of Amadi records the death in 1194 of "Guido de Hierusalem" and his burial in "la madre chiesia di Nicossia"[343]m (Apr 1180) as her second husband, SIBYLLE of Jerusalem, widow of GUGLIELMO "Lungaspada" di Monferrato, daughter of AMAURY I King of Jerusalem & his first wife Agnès de Courtenay ([1160]-Acre [Sep/21 Oct] 1190[344]).  This marriage was proposed by Amaury de Lusignan, older brother of her future husband, who was her mother's lover[345].  On the death of her son in 1186, she was proclaimed SIBYLLE Queen of Jerusalem.

7.         GUILLAUME de Lusignan (-before Sep 1208)Guy King of Jerusalem confirmed the marriage agreement between "comitem Joscelinum senescalcum primogenitam filiam suam" and "Guillelmo de Valence, frater regis", by charter dated 21 Oct 1186, which specifies that her dowry was "Torono, Castro novo…Cabor"[346].  Seigneur de Valence.  m (after 21 Oct 1186) as her first husband, BEATRICE de Courtenay Lady of Toron (part), Castro Novo and Cabor, daughter of JOSCELIN [III] de Courtenay Count of Edessa & his wife Agnes de Milly ([1176]-after 1245).  The Lignages d'Outremer name (in order) "Biatris et Annés" as the two daughters of "dou conte Jocelin" & his wife, specifying that Beatrix married "un conte aleman maugré le rei Heymeri" and died without heirs[347].  Guy King of Jerusalem confirmed the marriage agreement between "comitem Joscelinum senescalcum primogenitam filiam suam" and "Guillelmo de Valence, frater regis", by charter dated 21 Oct 1186, which specifies that her dowry was "Torono, Castro novo…Cabor"[348].  She married secondly (before Sep 1208) Otto Graf von Henneberg und Rotenlauben.  "Otto comes (de Henneberg)" donated property to the Teutonic Knights at Acre, with the consent of "uxoris Beatricis, filiæ quondam comitis Joscelini", by charter dated Sep 1208[349]

 

 

 

F.      SEIGNEURS de VIVONNE

 

 

The town of Vivonne lies south of Poitiers, along the road towards Angoulême.  I am grateful to Margaret Schooling for her help in preparing the reconstruction of this family and providing copies of primary source material where shown below. 

 

 

1.         JOSCELIN [I] de Vivonne (-[1025/30]).  The manuscript, entitled "Conventus inter Comitem et Ugonem" by Besly, records an agreement between "comes Pictavorum et præsul Gislebertus" (on the one part) and "Ioscelino avunculo Hugoni" (on the other), regarding the transfer of "castro…Vicredoni" to the latter after the death of the bishop, and after the death of both the first parties an agreement between "comes" and "episcopo Isemberto et Ugoni" transferred a half interest in the castle to the latter[350]m [ROSCA, daughter of ---.  Duguet suggests[351] that these were the same persons as "Gauzscelini, Rosce uxoris sue…Ugonis nepotis Gauszelini" who witnessed the charter dated to [1004/15] under which "Gaufredus et uxor sua Oda" donated "alodium suum in villa Batrezia in vicaria Vicodonense" to Poitiers Saint-Cyprien[352].  Joscelin & his wife had one child: 

a)         son .  Painter states that Joscelin’s son was "the ancestor of the house of Vivonne" and retained "actual command of the castle" after the arrangement with his first cousin Hugues [IV] de Lusignan, but he does not cite the corresponding primary source[353]

2.         [ARSENDE] .  If "avunculo" is interpreted strictly in the document quoted above, Joscelin de Vivonne was the maternal uncle of Hugues [IV] de Lusignan.  "Ugo Liziniacensis domnus" donated property to St Cyprien, Poitiers by charter dated to [1012/18], subscribed by "Arsendis matris eius"[354], although it is not known with certainty that this document relates to her son Hugues [IV].  m HUGUES [III] "Albus" de Lusignan, son of HUGUES [II] "Carus/le Cher" de Lusignan & his wife --- (-[1012]). 

 

 

1.         JOSCELIN [II] de Vivonne (-before 1076).  "Joscelinus et filius meus Hugo" donated "mei juris ancillam Constantiam" to Saint-Maixent, confirmed by "uxor mea atque liberi", by charter dated to [1059/68][355]m ---.  The name of Joscelin’s wife is not known.  Joscelin [II] & his wife had two children: 

a)         HUGUES de Vivonne (-before 1076).  "Joscelinus et filius meus Hugo" donated "mei juris ancillam Constantiam" to Saint-Maixent, confirmed by "uxor mea atque liberi", by charter dated to [1059/68][356].  Hugues presumably died before his brother Boso confirmed the donation by charter dated 1076 (see below).  same person as…?  HUGUES .  "Hugo vicarius de castro Vicvione et filii mei…Bartholomeus et Giraldus" donated "vicariam…in villa…Condato" to Nouaillé, in memory of "meo…filio Hugoni…defuncto", by charter dated to [1060/78], witnessed by "Hugonis de Liziniaco et fratri suo Iordani, Loni et fratri suo Seguino de Mortemaro castro…"[357]m ---.  The name of Hugues’s wife is not known.  Hugues & his wife had three children: 

i)          HUGUES .  "Hugo vicarius de castro Vicvione et filii mei…Bartholomeus et Giraldus" donated "vicariam…in villa…Condato" to Nouaillé, in memory of "meo…filio Hugoni…defuncto", by charter dated to [1060/78][358]

a)         HUGUES [II] (-before 1176).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated [1170/75] under which "Ugo vicecomes Castri Eiraudi" confirmed a donation to the abbey of Bécheron by "Aimericus pater meus" with the consent of "Guillelmo filio meo"[518]Vicomte de Châtellerault

-        see below

b)         RAOUL (-[1190])Seigneur de Faye, de iure uxorisRadulfus dominus Fagiæ” granted freedoms to “homines Sanctæ Radegundis...in alodio Gatnaici”, with the consent of “uxor eius Helisabeth et filius eius --- et filiæ --- et Eustachia”, by charter dated to [1140], witnessed by “...Amalvinus frater eius...[519].  A charter dated to [1149] records that “Hugo de Sancta Maura”, during the time of “Goffredi comitis Andegavensis”, constructed “castellum...Gronnium”, was wounded by an arrow in his head when the castle was besieged, and donated property to Noyers while being treated, with the consent of “filii eius Guillelmus et Goscelinus”, witnessed by “Hugo vice-comes Castri Araldi, Radulfus frater eius, Petrus de Monte Rabeio, Burcardus de Insula...[520].  "Hugo vicecomes Castri Airaudi et Radulphus frater eius…" witnessed the charter dated 27 May 1152 under which "Alienora…ducissa Aquitanorum et Normannorum" donated "boscum to Savria" to Saint-Maixent[521].  The Chronicon Turonense Magnum records in 1173 the rebellion of his three sons Henry, Richard and Geoffrey against Henry II King of England “consilio Radulfi de Faia et Hugonis de Sancta Maura[522]Ralph de Diceto’s Ymagines Historiarum record in 1172 that in Ireland “Hugo de Saintemore et Radulfus de Faie avunculus reginæ Alienor” encouraged “regis filii regis” to rebel against his father “on the advice of the queen it was said” (“consilio sicut dicitur eiusdem reginæ”)[523].  m (before [1140]) ELISABETH de Faye, daughter [AIMERY [II] Seigneur de Faye & his second wife Eustachie ---].  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  However, they are indicated by the source which identifies Raoul de Châtellerault as Raoul Seigneur de Faye, the Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis which names [his daughter] "Sibylla filia Radulfi de Faya, qui fuit frater Guillelmi Vicecomitis de Castelleyrac" when recording her marriage[524].  In addition, as noted above, Ralph de Diceto named Raoul Seigneur de Faye as “avunculus” of Eléonore d’Aquitaine, wife of Henry II King of England and presumed daughter of Raoul de Châtellerault’s sister.  This means that Raoul Seigneur de Faye, named in the following charter, was not the son of Aimery [II] Seigneur de Faye.  The most likely explanation for Raoul’s inheritance of the seigneurie de Faye is therefore that his wife was the heiress.  “Radulfus dominus Fagiæ” granted freedoms to “homines Sanctæ Radegundis...in alodio Gatnaici”, with the consent of “uxor eius Helisabeth et filius eius --- et filiæ --- et Eustachia”, by charter dated to [1140], witnessed by “...Amalvinus frater eius...[525].  Raoul & his wife had five children:

iv)       EUSTACHE (-1184).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified. 

v)        GUILLAUME .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  1201/24.

HUGUES [II] de Châtellerault, son of AIMERY [I] Vicomte de Châtellerault & his wife Amauberge [Dangerose] --- (-before 1176).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated [1170/75] under which "Ugo vicecomes Castri Eiraudi" confirmed a donation to the abbey of Bécheron by "Aimericus pater meus" with the consent of "Guillelmo filio meo"[545]Vicomte de Châtellerault.  A charter dated to [1149] records that “Hugo de Sancta Maura”, during the time of “Goffredi comitis Andegavensis”, constructed “castellum...Gronnium”, was wounded by an arrow in his head when the castle was besieged, and donated property to Noyers while being treated, with the consent of “filii eius Guillelmus et Goscelinus”, witnessed by “Hugo vice-comes Castri Araldi, Radulfus frater eius, Petrus de Monte Rabeio, Burcardus de Insula...[546].  "Hugo vicecomes Castri Airaudi et Radulphus frater eius, et Segebrandus Chabot...et Briencius Chabot" witnessed the charter dated 27 May 1152 under which Eléonore Dss of Aquitaine donated "boscum to Savria" to Saint-Maixent[547].  The abbot of Noyers confirmed that “præpositi Hugonis vicecomitis Castri Araudi” had granted privileges “in villa Buxeriæ”, with the consent of “filii eius Aimericus, Guillelmus, Radulfus”, by charter dated to [1156][548]

m firstly AENOR, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.  [1140]. 

m secondly ALIX d'Alençon Dame de Montgommery et de Sonnois, daughter of JEAN [I] Comte d'Alençon & his wife Beatrix du Maine (-after 1220).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated May 1235 under which her son "Hamericus vicecomes de Castro Heraudi" confirmed privileges granted to Perseigne abbey by "Guillermi quondam comitis Pontivii et Roberti comitis Alenchonis et Sagonensis domini…avunculi nostri"[549].  The chronology of her family suggests that it is unlikely that she was born much before [1155].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified. 

Hugues [II] & his first wife had three children: 

1.         AIMERY (-[1170]).  The abbot of Noyers confirmed that “præpositi Hugonis vicecomitis Castri Araudi” had granted privileges “in villa Buxeriæ”, with the consent of “filii eius Aimericus, Guillelmus, Radulfus”, by charter dated to [1156][550].   

2.         GUILLAUME (-Acre 1188).  The abbot of Noyers confirmed that “præpositi Hugonis vicecomitis Castri Araudi” had granted privileges “in villa Buxeriæ”, with the consent of “filii eius Aimericus, Guillelmus, Radulfus”, by charter dated to [1156][551].  "Guillelmo filio meo" consented to the confirmation by "Ugo vicecomes Castri Eiraudi" of a donation to the abbey of Bécheron by "Aimericus pater meus" by charter dated [1170/75][552]Vicomte de Châtelleraultm as her first husband, MARGUERITE de Mortemer, daughter of --- (-after 1190).  "Hamericus clericus filius domini Guillelmi Castri Ayraudi et Margarite uxoris eius" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron by charter dated Oct 1223 which names "fratres sui Guillelmus…et Renaudus et Guido et Hugo"[553].  Her family origin is confirmed by an enquiry into the rights of the vicomte de Châtellerault to "castro Sancti Remigii", one witness testifying that "Jocelinus de Montoere" held "Castri-Aeraudi…castrum…ratione vicecomitisse castri Aeraudi uxoris sue", and that "dominus Radulfus de Mortemer" succeeded him "pro tutela filiorum et filiarum dicti Jocelini qui erant sui nepotes" (although as shown below, it is more likely that the heirs to Châtellerault were born from Ralph’s sister’s first marriage)[554].  She married secondly (1188) Joscelin de Lezay dit de Montoiron, who succeeded as Vicomte de Châtellerault.  Benedict of Peterborough names "…Jocelinus de Munmorenc, vicecomes de Castello Haraldi…" among those who died at the siege of Acre in 1190[555].  Guillaume & his wife had [six] children: 

a)         [GUILLAUME (-after Oct 1223).  "Fratres sui Guillelmus…et Renaudus et Guido et Hugo" are named in the charter dated Oct 1223 under which "Hamericus clericus filius domini Guillelmi Castri Ayraudi et Margarite uxoris eius" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron[556].  It is possible that the first three, unrecorded elsewhere, were uterine brothers of Aimery, sons of another marriage of his mother's, although their being named before their brother Hugues suggests that they were older than him and therefore not the sons of Joscelin de Lezay.] 

b)         [RENAUD (-after Oct 1223).  "Fratres sui Guillelmus…et Renaudus et Guido et Hugo" are named in the charter dated Oct 1223 under which "Hamericus clericus filius domini Guillelmi Castri Ayraudi et Margarite uxoris eius" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron[557].  It is possible that the first three, unrecorded elsewhere, were uterine brothers of Aimery, sons of another marriage of his mother's, although their being named before their brother Hugues suggests that they were older than him and therefore not the sons of Joscelin de Lezay.] 

c)         [GUY (-after Oct 1223).  "Fratres sui Guillelmus…et Renaudus et Guido et Hugo" are named in the charter dated Oct 1223 under which "Hamericus clericus filius domini Guillelmi Castri Ayraudi et Margarite uxoris eius" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron[558].  It is possible that the first three, unrecorded elsewhere, were uterine brothers of Aimery, sons of another marriage of his mother's, although their being named before their brother Hugues suggests that they were older than him and therefore not the sons of Joscelin de Lezay.] 

d)         HUGUES [III] (-after 27 Dec 1202).  "Fratres sui Guillelmus…et Renaudus et Guido et Hugo" are named in the charter dated Oct 1223 under which "Hamericus clericus filius domini Guillelmi Castri Ayraudi et Margarite uxoris eius" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron[559]Vicomte de Châtellerault.  “Hugonis domini Castri Airaudi” consented to a donation by “G[alfridus] decanus” of the church at Poitiers by charter dated to [21 Apr 1196/6 Apr 1197][560].  He was imprisoned by the English in 1202.  Ralph of Coggeshall records that "…Gaufridum de Lucinan et Hugonem Brunum et Andream de Caveni et vicecomitem de Castro-Eraldi et Reimundum Tuarz et Savarium de Mauleun et Hugonem Baugii" were captured, together with "Arturum nepotem nostrum" [Arthur Duke of Brittany] after they rebelled and attempted to capture "castellum de Mirabel" where "regina Alienor avia Arturi" was living, dated to 1202[561].  King John ordered that "Vic Cast Araldi" should be sent to Normandy, dated 27 Dec 1202[562].  At an enquiry into the rights of the vicomte de Châtellerault to "castro Sancti Remigii", one witness testified that "dominus Hugo de Surgeres" held Châtellerault after the death of "vicecomes Hugo de Castro-Aeraudi" when "domino Aemerico de Castro-Aeraudi" refused to take possession[563]m ([1200]) [as her first husband,] EUSTACHIE de Mauléon, daughter of RAOUL Seigneur de Mauléon & his wife Alix Chabot (-after 3 Feb 1244).  A charter dated 1230 records the donation to Talmont by "Eustachia quondam vicecomitissa Castri Ayraudi", confirming the donation by "domina Aalis de Malleone mater mea" and with the consent of "domini mei S. de Malleone fratris mei"[564].  "Eustachia quondam vicecomitissa Castri Ayraudi, filia Radulfi de Maloleone bonæ memoriæ" donated property "in parrochia et in villa de Tessoele" to Absie, for the souls of "patris mei Radulfi de Maloleone, Aeliz matris meæ, Savarici fratris mei et Clemenciæ filiæ meæ", by charter dated Oct 1239[565].  "Eustachia quondam filia Radulphi domini de Maloleone et quondam vicecomitissa Castri Ayrardi" donated property to the abbey of l'Absie by charter dated Mar 1239 (maybe O.S.)[566].  King Henry III granted letters of protection to "Eustachia de Ardena, quondam soror Savarici de Malo Leone", dated 1242[567].  This document also suggests her possible second marriage to --- de Ardena (who has not otherwise been identified).  Hugues [III] & his wife had one child: 

i)          CLEMENCE (-before 13 May 1239).  “Gaufridus de Lizegnan” did homage to Louis VIII King of France for “vicecomitatu Castri Eraudi, qui provenit michi ex parte Clementie uxoris mee, filie Hugonis quondam vicecomitis Castri Eraudi” by charter dated May 1224[568].  "G de Lezigniaco dominus Volventi et Maraventi" issued a charter dated "ante Pentecosto 1239" which records a prior donation by "nobilis mulier Clemencia vicecomitissa quondam Castri Eraudi uxor nostra defuncta"[569].  "Eustachia quondam vicecomitissa Castri Ayraudi, filia Radulfi de Maloleone bonæ memoriæ" donated property "in parrochia et in villa de Tessoele" to Absie, for the souls of "patris mei Radulfi de Maloleone, Aeliz matris meæ, Savarici fratris mei et Clemenciæ filiæ meæ", by charter dated Oct 1239[570].  An enquiry into "foresta de Moleria" records that "dominum Aymericum de Castro-Airaudi" held "Castri-Airaudi vicecomitatum" for "neptis sue" who later married "domini Gaufridi de Lezigniaco" and died "sine herede"[571]m (before May 1224) as his first wife, GEOFFROY de Lusignan Seigneur de Vouvent, son of GEOFFROY de Lusignan Seigneur de Vouvent & his first wife Eustachie Chabot Dame de Vouvent (-after 1248).  Vicomte de Châtellerault 1224. 

e)         ELEONORE .  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  1184. 

f)          AIMERY (-after Oct 1223).  "Hamericus clericus filius domini Guillelmi Castri Ayraudi et Margarite uxoris eius" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron by charter dated Oct 1223 which names "fratres sui Guillelmus…et Renaudus et Guido et Hugo"[572]

3.         RAOUL (-after [1156]).  The abbot of Noyers confirmed that “præpositi Hugonis vicecomitis Castri Araudi” had granted privileges “in villa Buxeriæ”, with the consent of “filii eius Aimericus, Guillelmus, Radulfus”, by charter dated to [1156][573]

Hugues [II] & his second wife had one child: 

4.         AIMERY [II] ([1170/76]-1240 or after).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  The chronology of his mother’s family suggests that he must have been born late in his father’s life.  At an enquiry into the rights of the vicomte de Châtellerault to "castro Sancti Remigii", one witness testified that "dominus Hugo de Surgeres" held Châtellerault after the death of "vicecomes Hugo de Castro-Aeraudi" when "domino Aemerico de Castro-Aeraudi" refused to take possession[574].  An enquiry into "foresta de Moleria" records that "dominum Aymericum de Castro-Airaudi" held "Castri-Airaudi vicecomitatum" for "neptis sue" who later married "domini Gaufridi de Lezigniaco" and died "sine herede"[575]Vicomte de Châtellerault.  “Hemericus vicecomes Castri-Eraudi, Ala uxor quondam Roberti filii Ernesii, et Robertus Malet" relinquished "castrum de Esseio" in return for "terram et redditus apud Escocheium" by charter dated to [1220][576]The family relationship between the three participants is explained in another charter dated to [1220] which records that Hemerico vicecomiti Castri-Eraudi, Alæ uxori Roberti Ernesii et Roberto Malet, Roberti comitis Alenconii heredibus" assigned property for "castri de Esseio"[577].  "Hamericus vicecomes de Castro Heraudi" confirmed privileges granted to Perseigne abbey by "Guillermi quondam comitis Pontivii et Roberti comitis Alenchonis et Sagonensis domini…avunculi nostri" by charter dated May 1235[578].  "Haimericus vicecomes Castri Eraudi" donated property to Saint-Denis en Vaux by charter dated Mar 1239 which names "Haimerici avi mei"[579].  "Haymericus vicecomes Castri Eraudi" donated property to Saint-Denis en Vaux by charter dated 1240 which names "nobilis mulier Agatha uxor eiusdem Haymerici vicecomitis et Johannes filius eorumdem"[580]m AGATHA, daughter of ---.  "Haymericus vicecomes Castri Eraudi" donated property to Saint-Denis en Vaux by charter dated 1240 which names "nobilis mulier Agatha uxor eiusdem Haymerici vicecomitis et Johannes filius eorumdem"[581].  Aimery [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)         JEAN (-before 1290, bur Saint-André de Gouffern).  "Haymericus vicecomes Castri Eraudi" donated property to Saint-Denis en Vaux by charter dated 1240 which names "nobilis mulier Agatha uxor eiusdem Haymerici vicecomitis et Johannes filius eorumdem"[582].  Seigneur de Sonnois et de Montgommery.  Vicomte de Châtellerault.  "Johannes vicecomes de Castriheraudi et dominus Sagonensis" donated revenue from Peray to Perseigne abbey, confirming the donation made by "bone memorie Roberti quondam comitis Alentionis avunculi patris mei", by charter dated Apr 1263[583]m MATHILDE de Dammartin, daughter of SIMON de Dammartin Comte d'Aumâle et de Ponthieu & his wife Marie de Ponthieu (before [1220]-after Jan 1257).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to, but does not name, the four daughters of "comes de Pontivo Symon" (in order) as the wives of "rex Castelle de Hispanie Fernandus…filius vicecomitis de Castro Araudi…filius comitis de Augo…comes de Roceio"[584].  The wording of this passage means that the husband of this Dammartin daughter was not Aimery [II] Vicomte de Châtellerault, as shown in many secondary sources, which would in any case be chronologically impossible, but his son[585].  In addition, the full passage appears to indicate that the wife of "filius vicecomitis de Castro Airaudi" was the oldest of the four daughters as she is referred to "alteram natu maiorem", even though her husband is mentioned second in the list.  This would seem surprising considering that the county of Ponthieu was inherited by Jeanne, wife of Fernando III King of Castile.  The charter dated Aug 1237, quoted in full in NORTHERN FRANCE, under which her parents name their daughter Jeanne "primogenite nostre J. …regine Yspanie et Castelle", confirms that Jeanne was indeed the oldest daughter[586].  One possible explanation of Alberic’s text is that he intended to indicate that the daughter whose husband was named second in his list was the oldest of the remaining daughters, although such a reference would seem superfluous.  Interestingly, Butkens states, in his commentary relating to the Dammartin-Ponthieu family, that (1) this daughter married "le fils du Vicomte de Chastellerault" and (2) that she was the oldest daughter[587], the latter statement presumably being based on a literal interpretation of the passage in Alberic which, as explained above, is contradicted by the charter dated Aug 1237.  Butkens, in the same passage, says that "le fils du Vicomte de Chastellerault…n’en eust pas de lignée" (from his wife, Simon’s daughter), although as shown below this statement is incorrect.  The wife of Vicomte Jean was named Mathilde, as shown by the charter dated Jan 1256 under which "Matildis nostra uxor" confirmed a donation to the abbey of Bécheron by "Johannes vicecomes Castri Ayraudi"[588].  Mathilde was presumably named after her paternal grandmother.  The charter dated 1291, under which "Jean de Harcourt chevalier et Jeanne vicomtesse de Châtellerault sa femme, fille de Jean vicomte de Châtellerault" confirmed all the donations to Saint-André-en-Gouffern made by their predecessors[589], indicates that Mathilde was the mother of Jean’s daughter Jeanne, as other donations to Saint-André-en-Gouffern which are recorded in the same source were made by the comtes de Ponthieu (ancestors of Mathilde), not by the vicomtes de Châtellerault.  If it is correct that Mathilde was the second daughter of Simon de Dammartin and his wife, it is likely that she was married after her sister Jeanne, whose marriage can be dated to before Aug 1237.  Jean & his wife had one child: 

i)          JEANNE ([1243/47]-16 May 1315).  Dame de Lillebonne.  Her birth date is estimated on the assumption that she was an adolescent at the time of her first marriage, but young enough to have had children born after [1275] by her second husband.  "Johanna de Castro Ayraudi relicta Gaufridi de Lesigniaco" swore homage to Saint-Maixent for certain property by charter dated 4 Mar 1275[590].  Her family origin and second marriage are indicated by a charter dated 20 May 1280 in which her second husband is named “Ioannes de Haricuria ratione uxoris vicecomes Castri-Airaudi[591].  A register dated early Nov 1286 records the settlement between “Jean de Harcourt sire de Qualeuille et Mareschal de France” and “Dame Beatrix comtesse de Dreux et de Montfort” concerning revenue from Lillebonne “pour raison de nostre fame fille le viscomte et la viscomtesse de Chasteleraut fille et heir d’iceux[592].  "Jean de Harcourt chevalier et Jeanne vicomtesse de Châtellerault sa femme, fille de Jean vicomte de Châtellerault" confirmed all the donations to Saint-André-en-Gouffern made by their predecessors by charter dated 1291[593].  This document confirms that Jeanne must have been the daughter of Mathilde de Dammartin, as other donations to Saint-André-en-Gouffern which are recorded in the same source were made by the comtes de Ponthieu not by the vicomtes de Châtellerault.  "Johan saignour de Harecourt et…Johanne fame doudit Johan fille et heir…debonne memoire Johan iadis vicomte de Chatel-Heraut et saignour de Soonnays" recognised the privileges of Perseigne abbey by charter dated Mar 1291[594]m firstly (1259) GEOFFROY de Lusignan Seigneur de Jarnac et de Château-Larcher, son of HUGUES [XI] "le Brun" de Lusignan Comte de la Marche et d'Angoulême & his wife Isabelle Ctss d'Angoulême (-[Jun 1272/Mar 1274]).  m secondly ([1276]) [as his second wife,] JEAN [II] “le Preux” Seigneur d’Harcourt, son of JEAN [I] Seigneur d’Harcourt & his wife Alix de Beaumont (-21 Dec 1302, bur Notre-Dame du Parc).  Vicomte de Châtellerault by right of his wife, Maréchal de France, Amiral de France. 

 

 

 

B.      VICOMTE de CHÂTELLERAULT (MAINGOT, SEIGNEURS de SURGERES)

 

 

1.         GUILLAUME Maingot (-after 1174).  "…Willelmus Mangat, Theobaldus Chabot…" witnessed the marriage contract between "Johanni filio Henrici…regis Angliæ" and "Humbertus comes Mauriensis et marchio Italiæ…filia…primogenita…Aalis" dated 1173[595]"Guillelmus Maengoti et Girbertus frater meus" granted duty exemptions to l’aumonerie de Saint-Gilles de Surgères by charter dated 1174[596].  "Willelmus Maingot et Willelmus Maingot filius meus" donated property "in feodis Vulventi" to Absie, for the soul of "domnæ Bertæ uxoris meæ defunctæ", by charter dated 1177[597]m [firstly] BERTHE de Rancon, daughter of GEOFFROY [III] de Rancon Seigneur de Taillebourg & his wife --- (-before 1177).  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 29 Aug 1217 under which her son "Willelmus Maengoti dominus de Surgeriis" donated property at Fon-de-Lay made to Saint-Maixent, for the souls of "domini Willelmi Maengoti patris mei et domine Berthe matris mæ et dominæ Bartholomeæ uxoris meæ et Hugonis de Surgeriis et Gaufridi de Surgeriis fratrum meorum"[598].  "Willelmus Maingot et Willelmus Maingot filius meus" donated property "in feodis Vulventi" to Absie, for the soul of "domnæ Bertæ uxoris meæ defunctæ", by charter dated 1177[599].  [m secondly [ORENGARDE/DOUCE], [widow of HUGUES [IX] de Lusignan], daughter of ---.]  A charter dated 1168 records a donation of property to the Knights Hospitallers by "Hugo de Lusignan, Dulcia uxor et Alamanda filia eiusdem"[600].  Her second marriage is suggested by the document, dated (by Delisle) to [1209], under which "comes Augi" (Raoul de Lusignan "d’Exoudun" Comte d’Eu, see below) pledged his lands for his homage to Philippe II King of France, and that of "fratres sui comes Marchie et vicecomes Castri Eraudi"[601].  Assuming that this document is correctly dated, "vicecomes Castri Eraudi" at the time was Hugues de Surgères.  A second marriage of Raoul’s mother would be the only way in which Hugues de Surgères could be correctly called "frater" of Hugues [X] de Lusignan and Raoul de Lusignan Comte d’Eu.  It is also possible, assuming that the 1168 does not refer to Hugues [IX] de Lusignan, that Guillaume Maingot’s second wife was Hugues [IX]’s known wife Orengarde.  If Orengarde/Douce can correctly be identified as the [second] wife of Hugues [IX], and mother of Raoul, it is likely that she was heiress of Exoudun which was transmitted to Raoul.  Guillaume & his [first] wife had two children:

C.      SEIGNEURS de FAYE

 

 

Faye-la-Vineuse is located about 20 kilometres north-west of Châtellerault and about the same distance south of L’Isle-Bouchard, in the canton Richelieu, arrondissement Chinon, in the present-day French département of Indre-et-Loire.  Primary sources have been found which record the seigneur de Faye from [1081] as noted below.  The seigneurie appears to have passed to a younger branch of the vicomtes de Châtellerault in [1140], although the primary source which confirms this information has not been identified.  The seigneurie was later inherited by the family of the seigneurs de Fréteval.

i)          [ELISABETH de Faye The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  However, they are indicated by the source which identifies Raoul de Châtellerault as Raoul Seigneur de Faye, the Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis which names [his daughter] "Sibylla filia Radulfi de Faya, qui fuit frater Guillelmi Vicecomitis de Castelleyrac" when recording her marriage[661].  In addition, Ralph de Diceto named Raoul Seigneur de Faye as “avunculus” of Eléonore d’Aquitaine, wife of Henry II King of England and presumed daughter of Raoul de Châtellerault’s sister[662].  This means that Raoul Seigneur de Faye, named in the following charter, was not the son of Aimery [II] Seigneur de Faye.  The most likely explanation for Raoul’s inheritance of the seigneurie de Faye is therefore that his wife was the heiress.  “Radulfus dominus Fagiæ” granted freedoms to “homines Sanctæ Radegundis...in alodio Gatnaici”, with the consent of “uxor eius Helisabeth et filius eius --- et filiæ --- et Eustachia”, by charter dated to [1140], witnessed by “...Amalvinus frater eius...[663]m RAOUL de Châtellerault, son of AIMERY [I] Vicomte de Châtellerault & his wife Amauberge [Dangerose] --- (-[1190]).  Seigneur de Faye, de iure uxoris.]

The name “Faye” suggests that the following family group was related to the family shown above.  From a chronological point of view, it appears possible that the third Aimery de Faye named below was the same person as Aimery [I] Seigneur de Faye who is named above.

D.      SEIGNEURS de l’ISLE-BOUCHARD

 

 

The seigneurie de l’Isle-Bouchard was located south-east of Chinon, on the banks of the river Vienne, north of Châtellerault, in the present-day French département of Indre-et-Loire.  The reconstruction of the family shown below depends heavily on charters included in the published cartulary of the abbey of Noyers.  Unfortunately few of these documents are dated.  The published cartulary includes, in every case, an estimated date for each charter.  However, the documents themselves contain little information enabling such estimates to be corroborated.  In some cases, as will be seen below, these estimated dates present difficulties in the family reconstruction, suggesting that they may be inaccurate.  It should be emphasised that the following reconstruction reflects the information contained in the primary sources which have been identified so far.  If other sources emerge, adjustments may be needed to take into account new information.  Many of the details shown below are inconsistent with the reconstruction shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[668], which also includes other individuals who are not named in the primary documentation consulted.

i)          BOUCHARD [II] (-[1065/67]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1067] quoted below.  Seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard.  “Odila et...” donated property “apud Ismantiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “domino nostro Burchardo et uxore eius Agnete”, by charter dated to [1065], witnessed by “Burchardus dominus Insulæ...[674].  A charter dated to [1067] records (1) that “Burchardus...filius Huonis dominus castri Insulæ Burchardi dum eidem castro dominaretur” founded the church of Saint-Gilles “apud Ismantiam”, with “Andreas Peloquinus filius Archembaldi Burrelli” consenting to the donations made by “patruus eius Burchardus” and (2) that “archiepiscopus Bartholomæus” approved the foundation with the consent of “Bartholomæus filius Archembaldi” who held “castrum Insulæ post Peloquinum” witnessed by “...Andreæ Peloquini[675].  A charter dated 1069 records that "Buchardus miles senior, castri dominus quod vocant Insulam" had donated rights over "allodio Tavennensi" to Marmoutier for the souls of "filiorum Hugonis, Huberti et Aimerici" and for the love of "conjugis suæ Hermengardis", that after his death "Tetbaldus comes" captured the land, that in compensation "Burchardus" donated half "villæ Ripariæ" to the monastery and that "Gaufridus avunculus suus" entered Marmoutier as a monk, and that "Buchardo mortuo, Pelopinus nepos eius" excluded "partem Ripariæ" from his inheritance, signed by "Fulco comes…" [Foulques IV "le Rechin" Comte d’Anjou][676]m AGNES, daughter of --- (-after [1065]).  “Odila et...” donated property “apud Ismantiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “domino nostro Burchardo et uxore eius Agnete”, by charter dated to [1065], witnessed by “Burchardus dominus Insulæ...[677]

ii)         [AMABILIS] .  The parentage and marriage of this person are indicated by the charter dated 1069 which records that "Buchardus miles senior, castri dominus quod vocant Insulam" had donated rights over "allodio Tavennensi" to Marmoutier for the souls of "filiorum Hugonis, Huberti et Aimerici" and for the love of "conjugis suæ Hermengardis", that after his death "Tetbaldus comes" captured the land, that in compensation [the brother of this person] "Burchardus" donated half "villæ Ripariæ" to the monastery and that "Buchardo mortuo, Pelopinus nepos eius" excluded "partem Ripariæ" from his inheritance[678].  This interpretation assumes that “nepos” in this document can be interpreted as nephew.  The charter dated 1198 quoted below names Archambaud Borell (recorded elsewhere as the father of Peloquin [I] and Barthélemy, see below) and “Gérard Borell”.  This reference to two persons named “Borell”, a name otherwise unassociated with the earlier seigneurs de l’Isle-Bouchard, suggests that they belonged to a different family.  If that is correct, it appears more likely that Bouchard [II]’s sister married Archambaud Borell rather than that Archambaud was Bouchard’s brother.  Her name is confirmed by a charter dated to [1085] which records the donation of a vine to Noyers by “homine Andraudo” with the consent of “Archembaudus Burrellus et Amabilis conjux eius”, the later claim by “Peloquinus filius ipsius Archembaldi”, and the subsequent settlement of the resulting dispute[679], although it is not known whether Archambaud was married twice and this was the name of his second wife who was not the daughter of Hugues de l’Isle-Bouchard.  Europäische Stammtafeln names the wife of Archambaud Borell as “Agnes 1140” (no reference is made to “Amabilis”)[680].  From a chronological point of view, “1140” could not refer to the wife of Archambaud Borell.  It is likely that Europäische Stammtafeln mistook the charter dated 1140, quoted below, which names another “Borell” and his wife Agnes, as referring to Archambaud Borell.  m ARCHAMBAUD Borell, son of GERAUD Borell & his wife Oda ---. 

b)         HUBERT .  "Burchardus miles et senior, dominus Castri quem vocant ad insulam super fluvium Vigennæ" confirmed the donation of "allodio…Taventum" to Marmoutier by "Theobaldus", for the souls of "filiorum meorum Hugonis, Huberti atque Aimerici, conjugemque Hermengardis defunctæ, et Agnetis", charter dated 1020[681]

c)         AIMERY .  "Burchardus miles et senior, dominus Castri quem vocant ad insulam super fluvium Vigennæ" confirmed the donation of "allodio…Taventum" to Marmoutier by "Theobaldus", for the souls of "filiorum meorum Hugonis, Huberti atque Aimerici, conjugemque Hermengardis defunctæ, et Agnetis", charter dated 1020[682]

d)         [GERAUD .  A charter dated 1069 records that "Buchardus miles senior, castri dominus quod vocant Insulam" had donated rights over "allodio Tavennensi" to Marmoutier for the souls of "filiorum Hugonis, Huberti et Aimerici" and for the love of "conjugis suæ Hermengardis", that after his death "Tetbaldus comes" captured the land, that in compensation "Burchardus" donated half "villæ Ripariæ" to the monastery and that "Gaufridus avunculus suus" entered Marmoutier as a monk[683].  If “avunculus” in this charter can be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle, Géraud was the brother of Bouchard [II]’s mother.  However, the term was also used to indicate paternal uncle, so the question is not without doubt.] 

 

 

[Two possible brothers:]

1.         GERAUD Borell .  His existence is confirmed by the charter dated 1198 under which "Bartholomæus dominus Insulæ" settled a dispute with Cormery concerning "Villania et Rivarena", possessed by the abbey “tempore patris mei Buchardi et antecessorum eius”, and “usum nemorum” granted “in antiquis cartis donatorum Girardi Borrelli et Archembauldi Borrelli[684].  It is possible that Géraud was the father or brother of Archambaud Borell who is named below.  This charter presumably refers to the following earlier donation.  "Reverendus vir Gerardus [signed Gerardi Borrelli]...cum sua conjuge Oda...ac filiis suis...Archembaudo et Gerardo" donated "quemdam locum, qui antiquitus Rivarenna appellatur, dicatus in honorem beati Petri apostoli" to Cormery, and confirmed a donation of property “in villa...Valenna”, by charter dated to [1026/40][685]m ODA, daughter of ---.  "Reverendus vir Gerardus [signed Gerardi Borrelli]...cum sua conjuge Oda...ac filiis suis...Archembaudo et Gerardo" donated "quemdam locum, qui antiquitus Rivarenna appellatur, dicatus in honorem beati Petri apostoli" to Cormery, and confirmed a donation of property “in villa...Valenna”, by charter dated to [1026/40][686].  Géraud & his wife had two children: 

a)         ARCHAMBAUD Borell .  "Reverendus vir Gerardus [signed Gerardi Borrelli]...cum sua conjuge Oda...ac filiis suis...Archembaudo et Gerardo" donated "quemdam locum, qui antiquitus Rivarenna appellatur, dicatus in honorem beati Petri apostoli" to Cormery, and confirmed a donation of property “in villa...Valenna”, by charter dated to [1026/40][687].  A charter dated to [1085] records the donation of a vine to Noyers by “homine Andraudo” with the consent of “Archembaudus Burrellus et Amabilis conjux eius”, the later claim by “Peloquinus filius ipsius Archembaldi”, and the subsequent settlement of the resulting dispute[688]m [AMABILIS] [de l’Isle-Bouchard, daughter of HUGUES de l’Isle-Bouchard & his wife ---].  The parentage and marriage of this person are indicated by the charter dated 1069 which records that "Buchardus miles senior, castri dominus quod vocant Insulam" had donated rights over "allodio Tavennensi" to Marmoutier for the souls of "filiorum Hugonis, Huberti et Aimerici" and for the love of "conjugis suæ Hermengardis", that after his death "Tetbaldus comes" captured the land, that in compensation [the brother of this person] "Burchardus" donated half "villæ Ripariæ" to the monastery and that "Buchardo mortuo, Pelopinus nepos eius" excluded "partem Ripariæ" from his inheritance[689].  This interpretation assumes that “nepos” in this document can be interpreted as nephew.  The charter 1198 quoted below names Archambaud Borell (recorded elsewhere as the father of Barthélemy, brother of Peloquin, see below) and “Gérard Borell”.  This reference to two persons named “Borell”, a name otherwise unassociated with the earlier seigneurs de l’Isle-Bouchard, suggests that they belonged to a different family.  If that is correct, it appears more likely that Bouchard [II]’s sister married Archambaud Borell rather than that Archambaud was Bouchard’s brother.  Her name is confirmed by a charter dated to [1085] which records the donation of a vine to Noyers by “homine Andraudo” with the consent of “Archembaudus Burrellus et Amabilis conjux eius”, the later claim by “Peloquinus filius ipsius Archembaldi”, and the subsequent settlement of the resulting dispute[690], although it is not known whether Archambaud was married twice and this was the name of his second wife who was not the daughter of Hugues de l’Isle-Bouchard.  Europäische Stammtafeln names the wife of Archambaud Borell as “Agnes 1140” (no reference is made to “Amabilis”)[691].  From a chronological point of view, “1140” could not refer to the wife of Archambaud Borell.  It is likely that Europäische Stammtafeln mistook the charter dated 1140, quoted below, which names another “Borell” and his wife Agnes, as referring to Archambaud Borell.  Archambaud & his wife had [four] children: 

i)          ANDRE “Peloquin” [I] (-after [1109]).  Seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard.  The charter dated to [1067] quoted below suggests that André “Peloquin” [I] succeeded his uncle Bouchard [II] as seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard, died soon afterwards, and was succeeded by his brother Barthélemy.  This interpretation appears supported by the death of Barthélemy Archbishop of Tours being dated to [1068/70], suggesting that the two transactions recorded in the two parts of the charter were contemporaneous.  However, another charter quoted below suggests that “Peloquin” survived until at least [1109].  This apparent contradiction cannot be explained, unless the second part of the charter was written later, by the time Barthélemy had succeeded his brother, this succession being recorded even though it had not occurred when Archbishop Barthélemy confirmed the foundation.  Another possibility is that the charter dated to [1109] is misdated, although the charters dated to [1080] and after quoted below indicate that “Peloquin” was still alive.  A charter dated to [1067] records (1) that “Burchardus...filius Huonis dominus castri Insulæ Burchardi dum eidem castro dominaretur” founded the church of Saint-Gilles “apud Ismantiam”, with “Andreas Peloquinus filius Archembaldi Burrelli” consenting to the donations made by “patruus eius Burchardus” and (2) that “archiepiscopus Bartholomæus” approved the foundation with the consent of “Bartholomæus filius Archembaldi” who held “castrum Insulæ post Peloquinum” witnessed by “...Andreæ Peloquini[692].  A charter dated 1069 records that "Buchardus miles senior, castri dominus quod vocant Insulam" had donated rights over "allodio Tavennensi" to Marmoutier for the souls of "filiorum Hugonis, Huberti et Aimerici" and for the love of "conjugis suæ Hermengardis", that after his death "Tetbaldus comes" captured the land, that in compensation "Burchardus" donated half "villæ Ripariæ" to the monastery and that "Gaufridus avunculus suus" entered Marmoutier as a monk, and that "Buchardo mortuo, Pelopinus nepos eius" excluded "partem Ripariæ" from his inheritance, signed by "Fulco comes…" [Foulques IV "Nerra" Comte d’Anjou][693].  A charter dated to [1080] records a dispute between Noyers concerning “terras et vineas...super ripam Ismantiæ et Vigennæ” donated by “vir de Insula Gaufridus...cognomine Pila-Vicinum”, disputed after his death by “Savaricus filius...Oggisii” who brought an action “coram domino Peloquino Insulæ[694].  ["Dominus Peloquinus...dominus castri...Insulæ" donated property “apud villam...de Duobus Luciis” to the monastery of Cormery to permit "fratrem...Thomam" to enter as a monk, with the consent of “Bartholomæus frater ipsius Peloquini” who confirmed donations made by “atavus et avus et pater eius Archembaldus Borellus”, by charter dated to [1109][695].  Doubts about the dating of this charter follow from the earlier discussion about the charter dated to [1067].]  m ---.  The name of Peloquin’s wife is not known.  Peloquin [I] & his wife had two children: 

(a)       ANDRE “Peloquin” [II] ([1060/65]-after 1140).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1085] quoted below.  A charter dated to [1067] records (1) that “Burchardus...filius Huonis dominus castri Insulæ Burchardi dum eidem castro dominaretur” founded the church of Saint-Gilles “apud Ismantiam”, with “Andreas Peloquinus filius Archembaldi Burrelli” consenting to the donations made by “patruus eius Burchardus” and (2) that “archiepiscopus Bartholomæus” approved the foundation with the consent of “Bartholomæus filius Archembaldi” who held “castrum Insulæ post Peloquinum” witnessed by “...Andreæ Peloquini[696].  The name of the witness to the second part of this document suggests a family relationship with the confirmant.  It would be inconsistent with the first part of the document that he was the same person as André “Peloquin” [I].  The most likely explanation is that he was the same person as the son of André Peloquin [I] who is named in the charter dated to [1085] quoted below.  If that is correct, the series of documents quoted in this section suggests that André Peloquin [II] was a minor when his father died and was passed over as seigneur in favour of his paternal uncle, who continued to share power with him after Peloquin [II] attained the age of majority before [1084].  Seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard

(b)       BARTHELEMY [II] (-after [1084]).  “Bartholomæus frater Peloquini...” witnessed the charter dated to [1084] which records the donation of “terram...Montiniacus”, held from “Aimerico de Fagia”, by “Savaricus de Bosceia...audiente Peloquino domino Insulæ[697]

ii)         BARTHELEMY [I] (-after [1113]).  Seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard.  A charter dated to [1067] records (1) that “Burchardus...filius Huonis dominus castri Insulæ Burchardi dum eidem castro dominaretur” founded the church of Saint-Gilles “apud Ismantiam”, with “Andreas Peloquinus filius Archembaldi Burrelli” consenting to the donations made by “patruus eius Burchardus” and (2) that “archiepiscopus Bartholomæus” approved the foundation with the consent of “Bartholomæus filius Archembaldi” who held “castrum Insulæ post Peloquinum” witnessed by “...Andreæ Peloquini[698].  A charter dated to [1082] confirms rights of Noyers “in ecclesia...Sancti Patricii”, with the support of “Bartholomæus dominus Insulæ et Girberga uxor eius[699].  “Bartholomæus Insulæ dominus” donated property “in terra Crulliaci” to Noyers, with the consent of “conjux eius domina Girberga et filia eorum Dangerosa”, by charter dated to [1087][700].  “Bartholomæus dominus Insulæ” confirmed the donation of property to Noyers made by “Giraldus filius Ivonis” by charter dated to [1089][701].  A charter dated to [1090] records a war between “Fulconis comitis fratris Barbati” and “Bartholomæum dominum Insulæ” over “castrum ad Campaniacum[702].  A charter dated to [1094] records that “Bartholomæus dominus Castri Insulæ” confirmed donations to Noyers made by “pater eius Archembaudus...patruus Burchardus filius Ivonis...frater eius Andreas Peloquinus...Girardus filius Ivonis[703].  An undated charter (dated to [1102]) records that “Boso vicecomes Castri Adraldi et Bartholomæus de Insula et Hugo de Sancta Maura” besieged “rupem...Mirmanda” and attacked Faye, and that subsequent donations were made to Noyers[704].  ["Dominus Peloquinus...dominus castri...Insulæ" donated property “apud villam...de Duobus Luciis” to the monastery of Cormery to permit "fratrem...Thomam" to enter as a monk, with the consent of “Bartholomæus frater ipsius Peloquini” who confirmed donations made by “atavus et avus et pater eius Archembaldus Borellus”, by charter dated to [1109][705].  Doubts about the dating of this charter follow from the discussion about the charter dated to [1067] (see above, under Barthélemy’s brother André “Peloquin”).]  “Bartholomæus dominus Insulæ...” witnessed a charter dated to [1110] which records donations to Noyers of property “in alodo de Buxeriis[706].  “Barthélemy seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard” donated property to Noyers, and confirmed donations made by “son père Archambaud et son oncle Bouchard”, by charter dated 1112[707].  “Aimericus proconsul Castri Araldi, Bartholomæus dominus Insulæ, Aimericus dominus Fagiæ, Paganus dominus Montis-Basonis, Hugo dominus Sanctæ Mauræ...” witnessed the charter dated to [1113] which records an agreement between the monks of Noyers and “Hugo Goscelini” concerning “terræ quam habebat Guitburgis mater Radulfi de Fontanellis[708]m GERBERGE, daughter of --- (-after [1087]).  A charter dated to [1082] confirms rights of Noyers “in ecclesia...Sancti Patricii”, with the support of “Bartholomæus dominus Insulæ et Girberga uxor eius[709].  A charter dated to [1085] records the hearing of a dispute involving Noyers abbey “apud Insulam in curia dominæ Girbergiæ[710].  “Domina Girberga de Insula et filius eius Burchardus” sold property “apud Insulam” to Noyers by charter dated to [1087], witnessed by “Goscelino de Sancta Maura...[711].  “Bartholomæus Insulæ dominus” donated property “in terra Crulliaci” to Noyers, with the consent of “conjux eius domina Girberga et filia eorum Dangerosa”, by charter dated to [1087][712].  Barthélemy [I] & his wife had two children: 

(a)       BOUCHARD (-after [1087]).  “Domina Girberga de Insula et filius eius Burchardus” sold property “apud Insulam” to Noyers by charter dated to [1087], witnessed by “Goscelino de Sancta Maura...[713]

(b)       DANGEROSE (-after [1087]).  “Bartholomæus Insulæ dominus” donated property “in terra Crulliaci” to Noyers, with the consent of “conjux eius domina Girberga et filia eorum Dangerosa”, by charter dated to [1087][714]Europäische Stammtafeln suggests that she was the wife of Aimery [I] Vicomte de Châtellerault[715].  From a chronological point of view, the daughter of Barthélemy [I] appears to have been of the right age to have been the wife of Vicomte Aimery [I], but no other indication has been found that this is correct other than her unusual name. 

iii)        THOMAS (-[after 1109]).  "Dominus Peloquinus...dominus castri...Insulæ" donated property “apud villam...de Duobus Luciis” to the monastery of Cormery to permit "fratrem...Thomam" to enter as a monk, with the consent of “Bartholomæus frater ipsius Peloquini” who confirmed donations made by “atavus et avus et pater eius Archembaldus Borellus”, by charter dated to [1109][716].  Doubts about the dating of this charter follow from the discussion about the charter dated to [1067] (see above, under Thomas’s brother André “Peloquin”). 

iv)       [son .  The name of his son, Borell, suggests that he was descended from Archambaud Borell.  His date of death appears late for him to have been Archambaud’s son.  It is possible therefore that Borell was the son of an otherwise unrecorded younger son of Archambaud.]  m ---.  One child: 

(a)       BORELL (-[1137/40]).  He is named in the two charters of his wife.  m AGNES, daughter of ---.  “Agnès femme de Borel de l’Ile et Hugues son fils” confirmed the donation made to Turpenay by “Jacquelin de Ussé et Peloquin seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard” by charter dated 1137[717].  “Hugues, fils de Borel, seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard” confirmed, with the consent of “Agnès son épouse”, the donations to Turpenay made by “Peloquin seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard...après la mort de Borel son père” and by “Bouchard et Barthélemy fils du dit Peloquin”, by charter dated 1140[718].  Borell & his wife had one child: 

(1)       HUGUES .  “Agnès femme de Borel de l’Ile et Hugues son fils” confirmed the donation made to Turpenay by “Jacquelin de Ussé et Peloquin seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard” by charter dated 1137[719].  “Hugues, fils de Borel, seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard” confirmed, with the consent of “Agnès son épouse” [mistake for “sa mère”?], the donations to Turpenay made by “Peloquin seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard...après la mort de Borel son père” and by “Bouchard et Barthélemy fils du dit Peloquin”, by charter dated 1140[720]

2.         [--- .]  m ---.  One child: 

a)         IVES .  He is named as father of Bouchard in the charter quoted below, indicating that the term “patruus” was not used in that document in its strict sense of paternal uncle.  The chronology of the charters in which his sons are named suggests that Ives was the first cousin of the father of Barthélemy [I] not Barthélemy’s great-uncle.  [m firstly ---.  Ives’s son Bouchard, not named as the son of his known wife Odile in her charter dated to [1099] (see below) may have been born from an earlier unrecorded marriage of his father (unless Bouchard died in [1098/99] before this charter was issued).]  m [secondly] ODILE, daughter of --- (-[1099/05]).  “Matrona nobilis de Insula Odila...mater Aimerici et Girardi filiorum Yvonis” donated “medietatem terræ prope castrum Fagiæ...Cantat-Gallus” to Noyers by charter dated to [1099][722].  Odile was presumably the sister of the two “avunculi” of her sons named in the following document: “Aimericus et Girardus filii Ivonis” confirmed the donation of “terram de Colpoi” to Noyers made by “avunculi eorum Oggerus et Hubertus”, with the consent of “uxoribus eorum Sicilia et Burgesia”, by charter dated [1102][723].  Ives & his [first] wife had one child: 

i)          BOUCHARD (-after [1098]).  A charter dated to [1094] records that “Bartholomæus dominus Castri Insulæ” confirmed donations to Noyers made by “pater eius Archembaudus...patruus Burchardus filius Ivonis...frater eius Andreas Peloquinus...Girardus filius Ivonis[724].  “Burcardus filius Ivonis de Insula” donated property “apud Esmantiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “nepos eius Peloquinus”, by charter dated to [1098][725]

ANDRE “Peloquin” [II], son of ANDRE “Peloquin” [I] & his wife --- ([1060/65]-after [1140]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1085] quoted below.  A charter dated to [1067] records (1) that “Burchardus...filius Huonis dominus castri Insulæ Burchardi dum eidem castro dominaretur” founded the church of Saint-Gilles “apud Ismantiam”, with “Andreas Peloquinus filius Archembaldi Burrelli” consenting to the donations made by “patruus eius Burchardus” and (2) that “archiepiscopus Bartholomæus” approved the foundation with the consent of “Bartholomæus filius Archembaldi” who held “castrum Insulæ post Peloquinum” witnessed by “...Andreæ Peloquini[745].  The name of the witness to the second part of this document suggests a family relationship with the confirmant.  It would be inconsistent with the first part of the document that he was the same person as André “Peloquin” [I].  The most likely explanation is that he was the same person as the son of André Peloquin [I] who is named in the charter dated to [1085] quoted below.  If that is correct, the series of documents quoted in this section suggests that André Peloquin [II] was a minor when his father died and was passed over as seigneur in favour of his paternal uncle, who continued to share power with him after Peloquin [II] attained the age of majority before [1084].  Seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard.  “Savaricus de Bosceia...audiente Peloquino domino Insulæ” donated “terram...Montiniacus”, held from “Aimerico de Fagia”, to Noyers by charter dated to [1084], witnessed by “Bartholomæus frater Peloquini...[746].  A charter dated to [1085] records the donation of a vine to Noyers by “homine Andraudo” with the consent of “Archembaudus Burrellus et Amabilis conjux eius”, the later claim by “Peloquinus filius ipsius Archembaldi”, and the subsequent settlement of the resulting dispute with the consent of “Poloquinus filius Poliquini dominus Insulæ[747].  “Robertus Planus...” donated “decimam...ad Foolers” to Noyers, with the consent of “Peloquinus et uxor eius Eustachia dominus Insulæ”, by charter dated to [1095][748].  “Burcardus filius Ivonis de Insula” donated property “apud Esmantiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “nepos eius Peloquinus”, by charter dated to [1098][749].  An undated charter records that “Gaufridus Adelelmi flius” donated property “apud Cruzilias” to Noyers, that after he died the suzerain of the property “Peloquinus Insulæ dominus” reclaimed it, but that “Peloquinus et Eustachia uxor sua” redonated it (“annuerunt”)[750].  "Peloquinum, Insule Burcardi dominum" renounced exactions which he had committed against Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers relating to la terre de Neuilli, with the consent of "uxore mea Eustachia et filiis meis Burcardo, Bartholomeo", by charter dated to [1140][751].  If the dating of this charter is accurate, Peloquin [II] must have lived to a ripe old age. 

m EUSTACHIE, daughter of --- (-after [1140]).  “Robertus Planus...” donated “decimam...ad Foolers” to Noyers, with the consent of “Peloquinus et uxor eius Eustachia dominus Insulæ”, by charter dated to [1095][752].  An undated charter records that “Gaufridus Adelelmi flius” donated property “apud Cruzilias” to Noyers, that after he died the suzerain of the property “Peloquinus Insulæ dominus” reclaimed it, but that “Peloquinus et Eustachia uxor sua” redonated it (“annuerunt”)[753].  "Peloquinum, Insule Burcardi dominum" renounced exactions which he had committed against Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, with the consent of "uxore mea Eustachia et filiis meis Burcardo, Bartholomeo", by charter dated to [1140][754]

Peloquin [II] & his wife had four children:

1.         [ANDRE] “Peloquin” [III] ([1086/93]-after [1096]).  “Peloquinus puer filius nobilis Peloquini de Insula...” witnessed the charter dated to [1096] under which “Robertus...filius Gausleni de Bloio” donated “ecclesiam...Campaniacus” to Noyers[755].  His baptismal name is not mentioned, but it is possible that he was called André after his father and grandfather.  His description as “puer” suggests that he could not have been more than about 10 years old. 

2.         BOUCHARD [III] (-after 1161).  "Peloquinum, Insule Burcardi dominum" renounced exactions which he had committed against Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, with the consent of "uxore mea Eustachia et filiis meis Burcardo, Bartholomeo", by charter dated to [1140][756].  “Hugues, fils de Borel, seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard” confirmed, with the consent of “Agnès son épouse”, the donations to Turpenay made by “Peloquin seigneur de l’Ile-Bouchard...après la mort de Borel son père” and by “Bouchard et Barthélemy fils du dit Peloquin”, by charter dated 1140[757]Seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard.  A charter dated to [1149] records that “Hugo de Sancta Maura”, during the time of “Goffredi comitis Andegavensis”, constructed “castellum...Gronnium”, was wounded by an arrow in his head when the castle was besieged, and donated property to Noyers while being treated, with the consent of “filii eius Guillelmus et Goscelinus”, witnessed by “Hugo vice-comes Castri Araldi, Radulfus frater eius, Petrus de Monte Rabeio, Burcardus de Insula...[758].  "Buccardus, dominus Insule Burcardi" renounced rights relating to la terre de Neuilli in favour of Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, with the consent of "filia mea Aalix", by charter dated 1161, subscribed by "frater meus Bartholomeus"[759]m ---.  The name of Bouchard’s wife is not known.  Bouchard [III] & his wife had one child: 

a)         ALIX (-after 1161).  "Buccardus, dominus Insule Burcardi" renounced rights relating to la terre de Neuilli in favour of Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, with the consent of "filia mea Aalix", by charter dated 1161, subscribed by "frater meus Bartholomeus"[760]

3.         BARTHELEMY [III] (-after 1161).  "Peloquinum, Insule Burcardi dominum" renounced exactions which he had committed against Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers, with the consent of "uxore mea Eustachia et filiis meis Burcardo, Bartholomeo", by charter dated to [1140][761].  "Buccardus, dominus Insule Burcardi" renounced rights relating to la terre de Neuilli in favour of Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers by charter dated 1161, subscribed by "frater meus Bartholomeus"[762]

4.         JEANNE .  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the following charter of her husband.  “Geoffroy le Roux seigneur de Cravant” donated property at Turpenay to the monks of Turpenay by charter dated 1134, and “à la mort de son beau-père Peloquin seigneur de l’Ile” he donated an equal amount at the request of “Jeanne sa femme[763]m GEOFFROY Le Roux Seigneur de Cravant, son of ---. 

 

 

Two possible brothers.  Their parents have not been identified.  It seems unlikely that Bouchard [IV] was the same person as Bouchard [III]: the latter naming his daughter Alix in 1161 suggests that she was at that date his only child, while the chronology of the children of Bouchard [IV] suggests that they were already alive at that date.  The most likely possibility is that Bouchard [IV] was the son of Barthélemy [III], but no primary source has been identified which indicates that that is correct. 

 

1.         BOUCHARD [IV] (-[24 Apr 1189/[1 Apr] 1190]).  Seigneur de l’Isle-Bouchard.  “Bouchard seigneur de l’Ile” donated “la dîme de sa part des poissons pêchés dans les écluses de l’île” to Marmoutier, with the consent of “sa femme Petronille et de ses fils Bouchard et Barthélemy”, by charter dated 1184[764].  "Bucardus…dominus Insulæ" granted privileges to the monastery of Cormery, with the consent of "fratris nostri Bartholomæi", by charter dated 24 Apr 1189[765].  The date of this document indicates that it could have been issued by Bouchard [III] or by his son Bouchard [IV].  “Bouchard seigneur de l’Ile”, on his deathbed, donated half his mills to the monks of Turpenay, confirmed by “sa femme Petronille, par Barthélemy son fils, et Béatrix sa fille”, while “Bouchard le jeune son autre fils” consented in the chapter of Tavant the day of his father’s burial, by charter dated 1189[766]m PETRONILLE, daughter of --- (-after 1189).  “Bouchard seigneur de l’Ile” donated “la dîme de sa part des poissons pêchés dans les écluses de l’île” to Marmoutier, with the consent of “sa femme Petronille et de ses fils Bouchard et Barthélemy”, by charter dated 1184[767].  “Bouchard seigneur de l’Ile”, on his deathbed, donated half his mills to the monks of Turpenay, confirmed by “sa femme Petronille, par Barthélemy son fils, et Béatrix sa fille”, while “Bouchard le jeune son autre fils” consented in the chapter of Tavant the day of his father’s burial, by charter dated 1189[768].  Bouchard [IV] & his wife had three children:

HUGUES [I] de Sainte-Maure, son of GOSCELIN [I] de Sainte-Maure & his wife Aramburge --- (-[1116]).  His parentage is confirmed by the undated charter under which “Hugo Castri Santæ Mauræ” founded the priory of Saint-Mexme at Sainte-Maure, for the souls of “patris...mei jam defuncti...Goscelini et matris meæ...adhuc vivæ Aramburgis...atque fratrum meorum Gosberti et Guillelmi[815].  A charter dated to [1081] records an exchange of property with Noyers “audiente Hugone de Sancta Maura et filio eius Goscelino...[816].  A charter dated to [1088] records a war between “comitem Vindocinensem” and “Hugonem de Sancta Maura[817].  “Galterius Poteruns” donated “terram intra Haiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “Hugone de Sancta Maura et Hugone filio eius cum Cassamota uxore sua”, by charter dated to [1099], witnessed by “Goscelino de Sancta Maura...[818].  A charter dated to [1102] records that “vir nobilis Hugo de Sancta Maura” had “duos filios valentes Goscelinum...et Hugonem” who were killed and that he donated property for the souls of “filiorum suorum Guillelmi, Goscelini et Hugonis”, with the consent of “duo filii Hugonis, Guillelmus et Petrus et filia eius Marquissa et uxor Goscelini filii eius...Falcabella[819].  An undated charter (dated to [1102]) records that “Boso vicecomes Castri Adraldi et Bartholomæus de Insula et Hugo de Sancta Maura” besieged “rupem...Mirmanda” and attacked Faye, and that subsequent donations were made to Noyers[820].  A charter dated to [1105] records an agreement between Marmoutiers and Noyers abbeys concerning “ecclesiam...sancti Egidii...in castro...Insula”, naming “Aimerici filii Yvonis et Gerardi fratris sui...Gaufredo genero eiusdem Aimerici, Hugone de Sancta Maura...[821].  “Aimericus proconsul Castri Araldi, Bartholomæus dominus Insulæ, Aimericus dominus Fagiæ, Paganus dominus Montis-Basonis, Hugo dominus Sanctæ Mauræ...” witnessed the charter dated to [1113] which records an agreement between the monks of Noyers and “Hugo Goscelini” concerning “terræ quam habebat Guitburgis mater Radulfi de Fontanellis[822].  “Hugo de Sancta Maura” donated a serf to Noyers, for the soul of “filii sui Guillelmi junioris”, with the consent of “Hugo nepos eius”, by charter dated [1115][823].  “Hugo de Sancta Maura” donated “ecclesiæ Sanctæ Mauræ...decimam” to Noyers, with the consent of “Hugo filius Goscelini filii mei”, by charter dated [1116][824].  “Hugo de Sancta Maura”, anticipating his death, confirmed earlier donations made to Noyers (1) for the soul of “Guillelmi prioris filii mei”, (2) on the deaths of “filiorum meorum Guillelmi [error for Gozlini?] et Hugonis”, and (3) lastly for the soul of “filii mei Guillelmi qui ultimus omnium defunctus est”, with the consent of “Hugo nepos meus filius filii mei”, by charter dated [1116][825]

m firstly ---, daughter of JEAN de Cainon & his wife --- (-bur Noyers).  A charter dated to [1087] records that “quidam juvenis filius unius...Hugonis...de Sancta Maura Guillelmus” fell ill during the siege of “quoddam castrum in Guasconia”, donated “ecclesiam...Parilliacus ante Cainonem castrum” (which “Johannes de Cainone” had granted to “patri meo cum matre mea”) to Noyers, requested burial at Noyers “ubi mater eius sepulta fuerat”, died and was taken back for burial at Noyers where his father confirmed his son’s donation, that “patruus eius domnus Aimericus cognomento Paganus filius Johannis de Cainone” donated property “pro sorore mea et nepote hic sepultis”, and that “domnus Hugo” donated other property with the consent of “uxor eius Adenordis...Goscelinus et Hugo filii eorum[826]

m secondly ([1070/75]) ADENORDE de Montreuil, daughter of BERLAY [I] de Montreuil & his wife --- de Saumur ([1050/60]-after [1087]).  The Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum records that "Ugo de Sancta Maura" married "Aanordim filiam Berlai de Musteriolo ortam ex sorore Gelduini de Salmurio" by whom he had "Goscelinum et Ugonem"[827].  Insufficient information is known about the dating of the early Montreuil and Saumur families to test the chronology, and therefore reliability, of this statement.  The estimated date of her marriage is suggested by the probable date of birth of her stepson Guillaume and the fact that her two sons married in the late 11th/early 12th century.  This in turn suggests Adenorde’s birth in [1050/60], which suggests that her father was not the same person as Berlay [II] Seigneur de Montreuil (see ANJOU).  A charter dated to [1087] records that “domnus Hugo” donated property after the death of his son Guillaume, with the consent of “uxor eius Adenordis...Goscelinus et Hugo filii eorum[828]

[m thirdly ---.  No direct evidence of this possible third marriage has been found.  However, Hugues [I]’s younger son named Guillaume (first named in [1101]) must have been several years younger than his brothers Goscelin [II] and Hugues [II].  This suggests the possibility that he and his possible younger siblings may have been born from a later unrecorded third marriage of their father.] 

Hugues [I] & his first wife had one child: 

1.         GUILLAUME de Sainte-Maure ([1067/70]-Gascony [1086/87], bur Noyers).  Rainaldus de Grandi Campo et nepotes eius...” donated “ecclesiam...Savinniacus” to Noyers, confirmed by “domnus Aimericus dominus Fagiæ” who was suzerain, by charter dated to [1081], witnessed by “...Guillelmus filius Hugonis de Sancta Maura...[829].  Guillaume’s description as “juvenis” in the following document suggests that he was between 15 and 20 years old when he died, bearing in mind that he must have been old enough to participate in the siege.  A charter dated to [1087] records that “quidam juvenis filius unius...Hugonis...de Sancta Maura Guillelmus” fell ill during the siege of “quoddam castrum in Guasconia”, donated “ecclesiam...Parilliacus ante Cainonem castrum” (which “Johannes de Cainone” had granted to “patri meo cum matre mea”) to Noyers, requested burial at Noyers “ubi mater eius sepulta fuerat”, died and was taken back for burial at Noyers where his father confirmed his son’s donation, that “patruus eius domnus Aimericus cognomento Paganus filius Johannis de Cainone” donated property “pro sorore mea et nepote hic sepultis”, and that “domnus Hugo” donated other property with the consent of “uxor eius Adenordis...Goscelinus et Hugo filii eorum[830]

-        see below.  

3.         HUGUES [II] de Sainte-Maure (-killed [1102]).  The Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum records that "Ugo de Sancta Maura" married "Aanordim filiam Berlai de Musteriolo ortam ex sorore Gelduini de Salmurio" by whom he had "Goscelinum et Ugonem"[841]A charter dated to [1087] records that “domnus Hugo” donated property after the death of his son Guillaume, with the consent of “uxor eius Adenordis...Goscelinus et Hugo filii eorum[842].  “Galterius Poteruns” donated “terram intra Haiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “Hugone de Sancta Maura et Hugone filio eius cum Cassamota uxore sua”, by charter dated to [1099], witnessed by “Goscelino de Sancta Maura...[843].  A charter dated to [1101] records that “Oggerius de Mota...” donated “terræ apud Salvaticum” to Noyers, with the consent of “...Aimericus et Girardus filii Ivonis...Hugone de Sancta Maura et Guillelmo filio eius...[844]The Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum records that "Gosselinum et Ugonem filios Ugonis de Sancta Maura" helped "Hugo dominus Ambaziaci" [Hugues [I] Seigneur d’Amboise] against "comes Fulco" [Foulques IV “le Rechin” Comte d’Anjou][845]A charter dated to [1102] records that “vir nobilis Hugo de Sancta Maura” had “duos filios valentes Goscelinum...et Hugonem” who were killed and that he donated property for the souls of “filiorum suorum Guillelmi, Goscelini et Hugonis”, with the consent of “duo filii Hugonis, Guillelmus et Petrus et filia eius Marquissa et uxor Goscelini filii eius...Falcabella[846]m (before [1099]) CASSAMOTA, daughter of --- (-before [1102]).  “Galterius Poteruns” donated “terram intra Haiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “Hugone de Sancta Maura et Hugone filio eius cum Cassamota uxore sua”, by charter dated to [1099], witnessed by “Goscelino de Sancta Maura...[847]Heiress of la Haye and the vicomté de Tours: the Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum names "Gosselinum et Ugonem filios Ugonis de Sancta Maura", adding that "primogenitus" [error] married "Quasimotam" who brought “jure hereditario oppidum Haie et viceconsulatus Turonis[848].  Her absence from the charter dated to [1102] which records the death of her husband, in contrast to the wife of his older brother Goscelin [II], suggests that Cassamota may have been deceased at the time. 

4.         DENISE de Saint-Maure (-[1096]).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated to [1096] under which “Yrwisus cognomento Chabruns...quam filii mei Gosbertus et Pollardus et uxor filii mei Gosberti filia Hugonis de Sancta Maura” donated property “in villa...Aziacus” to Noyers[849].  Her name is confirmed by the charter dated to [1096] which records that “Hyrrwissus Cabruns”, before becoming a monk, donated property “ad Aziacum” to Noyers with the consent of “filiis suis Gosberto et Aimerico Pollardo”, that after the death of “Dionisia uxore Gosberti” he donated further property for her anniversary and those of “patris eius et fratrum eius et avi eius Raginaldi Cabronis et Hermæ aviæ suæ et matris eius Agathæ”, and that Gosbert made donations before leaving for Jerusalem[850]m (before [1096]) GOSBERT, son of HERVE Chabron & his wife ---. 

Hugues [I] & his [second/third] wife had [three] children: 

5.         GUILLAUME de Sainte-Maure (after [1087]-before [1115]).  He was presumably born after the death of his older half.brother of the same name.  A charter dated to [1101] records that “Oggerius de Mota...” donated “terræ apud Salvaticum” to Noyers, with the consent of “...Aimericus et Girardus filii Ivonis...Hugone de Sancta Maura et Guillelmo filio eius...[851].  A charter dated to [1102] records that “vir nobilis Hugo de Sancta Maura” had “duos filios valentes Goscelinum...et Hugonem” who were killed and that he donated property for the souls of “filiorum suorum Guillelmi, Goscelini et Hugonis”, with the consent of “duo filii Hugonis, Guillelmus et Petrus et filia eius Marquissa et uxor Goscelini filii eius...Falcabella[852].  “Hugo de Sancta Maura” donated a serf to Noyers, for the soul of “filii sui Guillelmi junioris”, with the consent of “Hugo nepos eius”, by charter dated [1115][853].  “Hugo de Sancta Maura”, anticipating his death, confirmed earlier donations made to Noyers (1) for the soul of “Guillelmi prioris filii mei”, (2) on the deaths of “filiorum meorum Guillelmi [error for Gozlini?] et Hugonis”, and (3) lastly for the soul of “filii mei Guillelmi qui ultimus omnium defunctus est”, with the consent of “Hugo nepos meus filius filii mei”, by charter dated [1116][854]

7.         [MARQUISE de Sainte-Maure .  A charter dated to [1102] records that “vir nobilis Hugo de Sancta Maura” had “duos filios valentes Goscelinum...et Hugonem” who were killed and that he donated property for the souls of “filiorum suorum Guillelmi, Goscelini et Hugonis”, with the consent of “duo filii Hugonis, Guillelmus et Petrus et filia eius Marquissa et uxor Goscelini filii eius...Falcabella[856].  This document could indicate that Guillaume, Pierre and Marquise were children either of Hugues [I] or Hugues [II].  As Hugues [I] was recorded elsewhere with a younger son named Guillaume, it seems probable that Pierre and Marquise were his other younger children.  The chronology also suggests the improbability of Hugues [II] having three children who were old enough to have given consent to a transaction in [1102].]

a)         GUILLAUME [V] de Sainte-Maure ([1271/72]-before 24 Aug 1300).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although it is indicated by the marriage contract of his daughter dated 24 Aug 1300, in which his own and his supposed father’s widow are both named.  Seigneur de Sainte-Maurem ([1288/90]) as her first husband, ALIX de Thouars, daughter of SAVARY de Thouars Vicomte de Thouars & his wife Agnes de Pons (-before 29 Apr 1315).  "Gui vicomte de Toarz chevalier…Geufray sire de Chastiau Bruiant chevalier et…Marguerite de Lezeignen sa fame dame de la Chiese et mers audit vicomte de Toarz et…Agnes de Ponz dame de Maroil, fame ça en arrière à noble home Savari, jadis viconte de Toarz" provided for the inheritance of "la dite noble dame Agnès de Pons et a Aaliz sa fille, et fille audit Savari jadis viconte de Toarz, notre oncle", with the consent of "madame Marguerite d’Eu nostre fame", by charter dated 25 Jul 1278[915]The marriage contract between "Amaury seigneur de Craon et de Sableill vallet" and "madame Agnès de Ponz dame de Maroylle jadis fame monsour Guillaume seignour de Seincte More et Alliz jadis fame Guillaume de Seincte More vallet...Ysabeau de Seincte More fille do dit Guillaume de Seincte More et de ladite Aalliz" is dated 24 Aug 1300[916].  She married secondly as his first wife, Geoffroy [VIII] de Châteaubriand.  Her second marriage is indicated by the charter dated 29 Apr 1315 under which Amaury [III] Seigneur de Craon and Geoffroy de Châteaubriant "d’où il résulte que ce dernier avait épousé feu Alix de Thouars, fille d’Agnès et belle-mère d’Amaury III" by whom she had "une fille unique décédée avant la rédaction de l’acte"[917]Guillaume [V] & his wife had one child:
