INTRODUCTION

 

 

The names of an entirely new set of nobles families start to emerge from the primary sources in the county of Holland in the mid-12th century.  This document includes details of the early generations of some of these families. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    HEREN van ABCOUDE

 

 

The town of Abcoude is located on the borders between the present day Dutch provinces of Noord-Holland and Utrecht, on the southern outskirts of Amsterdam.  The heerlijkheid of Abcoude, under the suzerainty of the bishop of Utrecht, is first mentioned in the early 11th century: a Chronicle of the church of Utrecht records the names of vassals on 2 January 1021, including “die Here van Abcoude” who held “dat Casteel mitter Heerlicheit van Abcoude ende mitter Stede van Wyck te Duerstede[1].  It is not at all clear that this document is correctly dated, as the use of low German instead of Latin suggests that it must have been written well after the event.  If it is authentic, the first castle at Abcoude must have been constructed before that date.  However, the document makes no mention by name of any holders of the heerlijkheid and members of the Abcoude family are named in Dutch charters only from 1239.  This delay of two centuries also suggests that the earlier document was reworked after the date it specifies.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the family was related to the Heren van Zuylen, who were also Herren von Anholt (which is today located in the German State of Nordrhein-Westfalen, on the Dutch border on the outskirts of Isselburg)[2].  After the death in 1459 without direct heirs of Jacob van Abcoude, the heerlijkheid Abcoude passed to the bishop of Utrecht[3]

 

 

1.         SWEDER [I] van Abcoude (-[15 Apr 1287/10 Jun 1289]).  Egmond abbey granted “infra limites parochiæ de Limmen usque ad Oudeburghelane infra parochiam de Heylighelo” to “Simon de Haerlem, Henrici de Diepenem filius minorannis”, under the seal of “tutoris mei domini mei…de Abcoude Zwederi militis...per Comitem Hollandiæ deputatus”, by charter dated 10 Sep 1239[4].  "...Suederus de Apekewoude..." is named as fiduciary in a charter dated 23 Oct 1268 under which “Henricus dominus de Lecka miles” acknowledged the jurisdiction of Utrecht St Marie over “Lopeke...Bonrepois[5]Heer van Abcoude.  Floris V Count of Holland listed his nobles, including “...Heer Zweder van Abcoude...Ridderen”, in a charter dated 1 Apr 1277[6].  "Sveder van Abcoude" notified Floris V Count of Holland that “Henric die Rovere” had accounted for money “van den huse van Montforde” by charter dated 15 Apr 1287[7]m as her second husband, AFKYN van Schoonhoven, widow of HUGO Botter, daughter of ---.  Her two marriages are shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[8], but the primary sources on which this information is based have not been identified.  Sweder [I] & his wife had one child: 

a)         GIJSBRECHT [I] van Abcoude (-after 1301).  “Giselbertus de Abcoude famulus” swore allegiance to Utrecht “super jurisdictione de Ameronghe”, settling a dispute between “dominum Adulphum de Waldegghen præpositum ecclesiæ Trajectensis” and “Zuederum de Abcoude piæ memoriæ patrem meum”, by charter dated 10 Jun 1289[9].  "Ghysebrecht van Abecoude" confirmed allegiance to Floris V Count of Holland by charter dated 22 Mar 1292[10].  "Ghisebrecht van Abecwoude riddere" notified that "Hughe van Vloten..." and others swore allegiance by charter dated 30 Aug 1298[11]Heer van Abcoude.  "Otto heere van Bueren" confirmed allegiance to the Count of Holland, indirectly for “heren Ghijsbrecht van Abbicwoude ende heren Arnoude van Arkel”, by charter dated 2 Oct 1299[12]m --- van Cats, daughter of NICOLAAS van Cats & his wife ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter dated 8 Aug 1297 under which Gijsbrecht Heer van Abcoude confirmed inheriting "zeven schepenen van Scoonhoven" from “zijnen zwager heer Nicolaas van Cats[13].  Gijsbrecht [I] & his wife had two children: 

i)          SWEDER [II] van Abcoude (-25 Apr 1347)His parentage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[14], but the primary source on which this information is based has not been identified.  Heer van Abcoude.  A charter dated 11 Aug 1305 records that Willem III Count of Holland summoned his nobles to The Hague, the list of attendees including “...Swederus ab Abcoude...equites[15]m MABILIA van Arkel, daughter of JAN [III] Heer van Arkel & his wife --- (-Oct 1317).  Her parentage and marriage are shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[16], but the primary source on which this information is based has not been identified.  Sweder [II] & his wife had children: 

(a)       GIJSBRECHT [II] van Abcoude (-1371).  His parentage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[17], but the primary source on which this information is based has not been identified.  Heer van Abcoude

m JOHANNA van Horn, daughter of WILLEM van Horn & his wife (-14 Jul 1356).  Heiress of Gaesbeek & Herstal.  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the charter dated 10 Oct 1357 which records an agreement between "heer Gisbrecht heere van Abcoude, heer Sweer van Abcoude heere van Gaesbeek ende Willem synen broeder, ridders" and "heer Diericx van Hoerne heere van Perwes en heer Jans van Polanen heere van der Lecke ende van Breda" concerning the division of territories, and names "Dierick heere van Hoerne…Arnout synen broeder ende joncvrou Lisbette syne suster"[19]

Gijsbrecht [II] & his wife had children:

Chapter 2.    HEREN van ALTENA

 

 

The lordship of Altena was located north-west of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, south of the county of Holland and north-east of the lordship of Breda, in The Netherlands.  Independent lords of Altena are recorded from the mid-12th century until the death of Dirk [III] Heer van Altena in [1241/47], after which the lordship passed to his relative Willem [II] Heer van Horn.  The lordship of Altena was different from the county of Altena, which was situated south of Dortmund, on the river Lenne, in the present-day German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen (see LOWER RHINE, NOBILITY). 

 

 

1.         DIRK [I] van Altena (-after 27 Feb 1168).  "…Theodericus de Altena…" witnessed the charter dated 7 Oct 1143 under which Heribert Bishop of Utrecht confirmed the privileges of Egmond church[22].  "…Theodericus de Altena, Florentius de Vorne, Isbrandus de Harlhem, Gerardus de Harlhem…Hugo de Vorne…" witnessed the charter dated 27 Feb 1168 which records a treaty between Floris III Count of Holland and Philippe Count of Flanders[23]

 

2.         DIRK [II] von Altena (-after [14 Oct/24 Dec] 1206).  Klaversma indicates a charter dated 1189 under which “Rutger van Meerheim” donated property “de Winricushoeve te Linne” to Kamp abbey, witnessed by “Dirk aartsdiaken van Luik [cognatus of the donor]...Dirk van Altena en zijn zoon Boudewijn...[24].  The date of this document suggests that Dirk [II] was a different person from Dirk [I].  “...Theodericus de Altena...” witnessed the charter dated 1203 which records a treaty between Otto Graaf van Gelre and Henri Duke of Brabant[25].  “Lodowicus comes de Los” resigned “castrum de Chalmunt...suum...alodium” to Henri I Duke of Brabant by charter dated [14 Oct/24 Dec] 1206, which names “obsides comitis: Rogerus de Merehem, Theodericus de Althena...[26]m ---.  The name of Dirk´s wife is not known.  Dirk & his wife had one child: 

a)         BOUDEWIJN van Altena (-after 21 Sep 1213).  Klaversma indicates a charter dated 1189 under which “Rutger van Meerheim” donated property “de Winricushoeve te Linne” to Kamp abbey, witnessed by “Dirk aartsdiaken van Luik [cognatus of the donor]...Dirk van Altena en zijn zoon Boudewijn...[27].  "Boudwinus de Halthena, Hugo de Vorne, Symon de Harlehem, Willelmus de Theylinge…" witnessed the charter dated 21 Aug 1200 under which Dirk VII Count of Holland donated property to Rijnsburg abbey[28].  "Hugo de Voirne, Baldwinus de Haltena…Hugo de Strien…" witnessed the charter dated 21 Sep 1213 under which Willem I Count of Holland granted protection to Geertruidenberg[29]

 

 

[Three] brothers, parents not known.  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that their parents were Dirk [II] van Altena and his wife.  Klaversma assumes that Dirk [III] was the son of Boudewijn van Altena, but it is not clear whether this is based on primary source documentation or is speculation[30]

1.         --- (-[before 1212]).  It is probable that both parents of Dirk had died before [1212]: "Theodoricus dominus de Autena" renounced rights over "mansum unum in villa...Mirda" in favour of Averboden, for the souls of "patris et matris mee", by undated charter[31], maybe dated to [1212] which is the date of another charter in which the same donor donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden[32]m --- (-[before 1212]).  [Five] children: 

a)         DIRK [III] van Altena (-[26 Jun 1241/1247])A charter dated 3 Nov 1200, which records a treaty between Henri I Duke of Brabant and Dirk VII Count of Holland, names "homines comitis: Rutgerus de Merhem, Hugo de Vorne, Theodericus de Halthena…"[33].  "...Theoderici de Althena…" witnessed the charter dated Mar 1204 under which Dirk VII Count of Holland donated property to the church of Alne[34].  A charter dated 1206 (after 14 Oct), which records that Louis Comte de Looz swore homage to Henri Duke of Brabant, names "obsides comitis: Rotgerus de Merehem, Theodoricus de Altena…"[35].  "…Hugo de Worn, Theodericus de Alcena, Simon et Johannes et Isbrand de Harlen, Willielmus de Teylinge, Walpertus et Florentinus de Leda, Arnaand et Henr. de Riswic, Walterus de Egmund" witnessed the letter dated 1207 from "Adelheidis comitissa Hollandie" to John King of England concerning the marriage of "comes de Los" and "filiam meam"[36].  A charter dated 1212 records an agreement between "Theodericus de Altena et Johannes de Husden", sworn by "ipse Theodericus de Altena et frater suus Walterus et Henricus patruus eius…"[37]"Theodoricus dominus de Autena" donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden, with the consent of "uxoris nostræ Mariæ et nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi", by charter dated 1212[38]A charter dated 15 May 1219 confirmed that the abbey of St Pantaleon, Köln granted "villam in Wishem" to "Wilhelmo de Hürne, viro nobili, advocato in Wishem", witnessed by "Nobiles, Theodericus de Althena…"[39].  "Nobilies homines mei Theodoricus de Althena, Albertus de Kuch, Theodorus de Vorne…" witnessed the charter dated Jul 1220 under which Willem I Count of Holland granted Dordrecht and other property to his wife[40].  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230, witnessed by "…Arnoldus avunculus meus…et W. frater meus…"[41].  "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland by charter dated 7 May 1230 witnessed by "…Walterus de Altena…"[42].  "Theodericus dominus de Altena" granted property at Schalwijk to certain men of Zeeland by charter dated 8 Aug 1233, witnessed by "Wilhelmus et Engelbertus de Horne, Rutgerus de Wickerode…"[43].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena" by charter dated 1235[44].  A charter dated 26 Jun 1241 records the reconciliation of "Th doctus dominus in Altena" with "Nicolaus dictus de Ema et Henricus filius suus ministeriales nostri", naming "domino Wilhelmo de Horne et fratre suo domino Engelberto…dominus Wilhelmus dictus de Strina…" among the fiduciaries[45]m firstly MARIA [van Horn, daughter of --- van Horn & his wife ---] (-after 1224).  "Theodoricus dominus de Autena" donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden, with the consent of "uxoris nostræ Mariæ et nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi", by charter dated 1212[46].  Her suggested parentage is based on the following reasoning.  The “nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi" in this 1212 document can be identified as Engelbert and Willem van Horn.  However, the sources appear contradictory regarding the precise relationship link between the Altena and Horn families.  Under a charter dated 1224, Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden and noted the donation "in villa de Brusthem" which was made by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[47].  This is similar wording to the 1212 document.  For present purposes it is assumed that "nepotum" can be interpreted in these two documents in its strict sense of nephew.  The presence of the wife of Dirk [III] van Altena in both documents suggests that the donor´s relationship with the Horn brothers was through her, which suggests that Dirk [III]´s wife was the paternal aunt of the two brothers.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[48].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk [III] van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk [III]´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[49].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[50].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  This second line of argument also appears corroborated by the succession of Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47], which is more easily explained if he was descended from Dirk [III]´s sister.  m secondly IMAGINA, daughter of ---.  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230[51]

b)         WOUTER van Altena (-after 7 May 1230).  A charter dated 1212 records an agreement between "Theodericus de Altena et Johannes de Husden", sworn by "ipse Theodericus de Altena et frater suus Walterus et Henricus patruus eius…"[52].  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230, witnessed by "…Arnoldus avunculus meus…et W. frater meus…"[53].  "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland by charter dated 7 May 1230 witnessed by "…Walterus de Altena…"[54]

c)         [--- van Altena .  The sources appear contradictory regarding the precise relationship link between the Altena and Horn families.  The documentation which suggests that the first wife of Dirk van Altena was the paternal aunt of the two brothers Willem and Engelbert van Horne is discussed above.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[55].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[56].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[57].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  The hypothesis also appears corroborated by the succession of her grandson Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47].  m --- van Horn, son of ---.] 

d)         [ALEIDE .  Klaversma indicates two sources which indicate that Aleide, sister of Dirk van Altena, married firstly “Johannes van of in Potthe” and secondly “Hendrik van Erkenteel alias Argenteau[58]m firstly JAN [van] Potthe, son of ---.  m secondly HENRI d´Argenteau, son of ---.  "Nobiles, Theodericus de Althena, Henricus de Archenteyl, Ruthgerus de Bremich..." witnessed the charter dated 15 May 1219 under which Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed that Köln St Pantaleon had leased "villam in Wishem" to “Wilhelmo de Hürne[59].] 

e)         [SOPHIE van Altena ([1190/95]-after 1247).  Klaversma indicates that Sophie was the sister of Dirk van Altena[60].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.   However, it is suggested by the charter dated 1247 under which "Leonius castellanus Brusellensis et Sophia uxor mea" confirmed property "insuper Cruchtene et Werte" to "domini Wilhelmi de Altena", inherited from "domini Theoderici bone memorie de Altena"[61].  Her birth date is estimated based on her having two children by her first husband.  Her two marriages are confirmed by the charter dated Mar 1230 under which “Leonius Bruxellensis castellanus et Sophia uxor mea” confirmed that "Arnoldus de Grimbergis filius predictæ Sophiæ uxoris meæ et Arnoldi Grimbergæ domini" donated property to Dendermonde[62]m firstly ARNOUT van Grimbergen, son of GERARD [II] Heer van Grimbergen & his wife Mathilde van Ninove (-1211).  m secondly LEON [I] Châtelain de Bruxelles, son of GEOFFROY Châtelain de Bruxelles & his second wife Helwide --- (-after 1252).] 

2.         HENDRIK van Altena (-after 1212).  A charter dated 1212 records an agreement between "Theodericus de Altena et Johannes de Husden", sworn by "ipse Theodericus de Altena et frater suus Walterus et Henricus patruus eius…"[63]

3.         [ARNOLD (-after 26 Feb 1230).  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230, witnessed by "…Arnoldus avunculus meus…et W. frater meus…"[64].  It is not known whether Arnold was the paternal or maternal uncle of the donor.] 

 

 

1.         [WILLEM van Altena (-after Jan 1250).  "Leonius castellanus Brusellensis et Sophia uxor mea" confirmed property "insuper Cruchtene et Werte" to "domini Wilhelmi de Altena", inherited from "domini Theoderici bone memorie de Altena", by charter dated 1247[65].  "Johannem dominum de Huesden" reached agreement with the town of ´s Hertogenbosch concerning tolls at Heusden by charter dated Jan 1250 witnessed by "Willelmus dominus de Althena frater suus…"[66].  It is possible that this is the same person as Willem [II] Heer van Horn (see below) whose family inherited the lordship of Altena.] 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 3.    HEREN van AMSTEL

 

 

The Amstelland is the area along the river Amstel which flows northwards from Uithoorn and Amstelhoek towards Amsterdam.  The precise geographical extent of the the medieval heerlijkheid of Amstel was not been ascertained.  The Heren van Amstel were closely linked to the bishopric of Utrecht and presumably were vassals of the bishops.  Wolfger was recorded as “schout” van Amstel in 1105 as shown below, an administrator responsible for local jurisdiction appointed by a local lord.  The “heer” to whom Wolfger reported has not been identified.  Egbert [I] van Amstel was described as “ministerialis” in the county of Gelrem, and his successor Gijsbrecht [II] as “ministerialis” of the bishop of Utrecht in 1226.  The latter document also represents the first documented occasion when a member of the family was described as “Heer van Amstel”.  A charter dated 29 Sep 1297 records an agreement between Jan II Count of Holland and Willem Bishop of Utrecht concerning property held by Gijsbrecht [V] Heer van Amstel (see below).  The document suggests that the property had been confiscated, one explanation being that Gijsbrecht had been implicated in the murder of Count Floris V in 1296.  No subsequent record has been found of Gijsbrecht or his descendants being described as Heer van Amstel.  A younger branch of the family succeeded to the heerlijkheid of IJsselstein. 

 

 

1.         WOLFGER van Amstel (-after 8 Jul 1126).  Schout van Amstel: under a charter dated 1105, the bishop of Utrecht records a dispute between the churches of Slidrecht and Houwenige, witnessed by “...Wolfgerus scultetus de Amestelle...[67].  “...Wlfgardo de Amestelle...” witnessed the charter dated 8 Jul 1126 under which Godebald Bishop of Utrecht donated property to Utrecht St. Pieter[68]

 

2.         EGBERT [I] van Amstel (-after 1172).  His parentage is not known.  The absence of the name Wolfger among his known descendants suggests that Egbert [I] was not closely related to Wolfger van Amstel.  “...Egbertus de Amstelle...” witnessed the charter dated 1131 under which Andreas Bishop of Utrecht separated “parochianis de Thufen” from “ecclesia de Grosnen[69].  Heribert Bishop of Utrecht founded Egmond St. Adalbert by charter dated 7 Oct 1143, witnessed by “...Egbertus de Amstel...[70].  Konrad III King of Germany granted “comitatum Oostergouwe et Westergouwe” to the church of Utrecht by charter dated 18 Oct 1145, witnessed by “...Eckebertus de Amestele...[71].  “Ministeriales: Ekbertus de Amestelle, filius eius Heinricus...” witnessed the charter dated 1172 under which Hendrik Graaf van Gelre confirmed donations made by “Henricus de Cuk comes Traiectensis[72]m ---.  The name of Egbert’s wife is not known.  Egbert & his wife had two children: 

a)         GIJSBRECHT [I] van Amstel (-after 1176).  Gijsbrecht is named as son of Egbert [I] in a charter dated 1169[73].  “...Giselbertus de Amestelle...” witnessed the charter dated 1176 under which “Baldewinus...in ecclesia beate Marie prepositus” confirmed donations made by “Gerardus de Ape[74]

Chapter 6.    HEREN van BREDA

 

 

The medieval heerlijkheid of Breda is today located in the western part of the Noord-Brabant province in The Netherlands.  From the early 8th century, the area is recorded within the pagus Toxandria or Texandria, which lay south of the river Maas, east of the river Escaut, and north of the river Dyle in northern Belgium: by charter dated 21 May 709 “Aengilbertus filius Gaotberto” donated property “in pago Texandrie in loco...Alfheim quod mihi ex paterno iure legitime advenit” to Willibrord Bishop of Utrecht, subscribed by “...Aengilbertus, Werengatto frater eius...[188].  No other charter relating to the area has been identified until the document dated 24 Jan 966 under which Emperor Otto I confirmed donations to the convent of Nivelles including "hereditas sancta Gertrudis…in pago Tessandrio super fluvio Struona in villa…Bergon"[189].  In the later 10th century, the area formed one of the counties ruled by Ansfrid [II] (later Bishop of Utrecht, see the document LOWER LOTHARINGIA NOBILITY, March of Antwerp): the Chronicon Laureshamense describes the church of Empel, near ‘s-Hertogenbosch, as "in pago Dehsendron in præsidatu Ansfridi comitis", referring to its foundation by the bishop of Liège dated to 969[190].  It appears likely that, around the same time that Ansfrid resigned as count and was appointed bishop in 995, Emperor Otto II established the March of Antwerp which included the area of Breda.  By the mid-12th century, Breda was under the suzerainty of the Dukes of Brabant, as shown by the charter dated to [25 Dec 1158/23 Sep 1159] under which Godefroi III Duke of Brabant confirmed the donation of “allodium...in Esschen” made to Tongerlo by “nobilis Bernerus...de Riseberga” which was subscribed by “...Godefridus de Breda...[191].  The outline genealogy of the Heren van Breda contained in Europäische Stammtafeln is in many respects inconsistent with the primary sources[192]

 

 

It is not known whether the following two individuals were related, although the contiguity of their names in the charter quoted below suggests a family relationship.  Maybe they were brothers.  They are not described as “domini de Breda” in the only source in which they are named. 

 

1.         ARNULF van Breda (-after 1125).  “...Arnulfus ac Ingelbertus de Breda...” witnessed the charter dated 1125 under which "Balduinus de Alost ac frater meus Iwanus" donated "ecclesiam de Herenbaldeghem" to Affleghem abbey[193].   

 

2.         ENGELBERT [I] van Breda (-after 1125).  “...Arnulfus ac Ingelbertus de Breda...” witnessed the charter dated 1125 under which "Balduinus de Alost ac frater meus Iwanus" donated "ecclesiam de Herenbaldeghem" to Affleghem abbey[194].   

 

 

1.         [GERARD] van Breda (-before 1152)Europäische Stammtafeln names Gerard as the husband of Beatrix de Laroche[195].  No primary source has yet been identified which confirms that this name is correct.  Europäische Stammtafeln also names Gerard as the son of “Heinrich I von Brunesheim, 1116 Hr in Groot-Zundert (1125†)” and brother of “Baldus de Laere”, but no primary source has been identified which confirms that this information is correct.  It appears more likely that [Gerard] was the son of either Arnulf van Breda or Engelbert van Breda who are named above.  m BEATRIX de Laroche, daughter of HENRI [I] de Namur Comte de la Roche & his wife Mathilde de Limbourg (-after 1152).  The Chronicon Hanonense names "Beatrix" as daughter of "Henri…quens de Durbuis" and her husband "Winant le signour de Hufalise"[196], although according to Europäische Stammtafeln[197] the wife of Winand van Gronsfeld Heer van Houffalize was Beatrix de Walcourt, daughter of Thierry de Walcourt & his wife Mathilde de Laroche, who was this Beatrix's sister.  Her correct marriage is indicated by the charter dated 1152 under which "Heinricus comes de Rupe" confirmed the donation of "capellam…in silva Fredier" to the abbey of Saint-Hubert, Ardenne, made by "matris mee Mathildis comitesse et Godefridi fratris mei", subscribed by "Elizabeth comitissa conjux mea, Beatrix soror mea et Godefridus filius eius de Brida…"[198].  Gerard & his wife had two children: 

a)         GODEFRID [I] van Breda (-after [1 Jan/24 Mar] 1161).  His maternal uncle "Heinricus comes de Rupe" confirmed the donation of "capellam…in silva Fredier" to the abbey of Saint-Hubert, Ardenne, made by "matris mee Mathildis comitesse et Godefridi fratris mei", by charter dated 1152, subscribed by "Elizabeth comitissa conjux mea, Beatrix soror mea et Godefridus filius eius de Brida…"[199].  “...Godefridus de Breda...” subscribed the charter dated to [25 Dec 1158/23 Sep 1159] under which Godefroi III Duke of Brabant confirmed the donation of “allodium...in Esschen” made to Tongerlo by “nobilis Bernerus...de Riseberga[200].  "Godefridus de Breda et Henricus frater eius…" witnessed a charter dated 1160 under which "Godefridus…dux Lotharingiæ" confirmed donations to the abbey of Villers[201].  Godefroi III Duke of Brabant confirmed that “Engelbertus de Scotes” had donated “allodium suum...Scotis” to Villers by charter dated [1 Jan/24 Mar] 1161, witnessed by “Godefridus de Breda et Henricus frater eius...[202]

b)         HENDRIK van Breda (-after [1 Jan/24 Mar] 1161).  "Godefridus de Breda et Henricus frater eius…" witnessed a charter dated 1160 under which "Godefridus…dux Lotharingiæ" confirmed donations to the abbey of Villers[203].  Godefroi III Duke of Brabant confirmed that “Engelbertus de Scotes” had donated “allodium suum...Scotis” to Villers by charter dated [1 Jan/24 Mar] 1161, witnessed by “Godefridus de Breda et Henricus frater eius...[204]Europäische Stammtafeln indicates that Hendrik was the same person as Hendrik van Schoten who is named below[205].  This does not appear likely to be correct given the probability that Engelbert van Schoten was the father of Hendrik van Schoten as suggested below.  same person as...?  HENDRIK [I] van Breda (-[after 7 Sep 1179]).  Under a lost charter dated to [1164/Aug 1179] “Florentius comes Hollandrie, Walterus Bertolt, Henricus de Breda...” granted freedom from tolls in their lands to the abbey of St. Michiel, Antwerp[206].  This grant is also referred to in a bull issued by Pope Alexander III dated 7 Sep 1179[207]

 

 

The relationship between the Schoten family shown below and the earlier Breda family has not been ascertained.  The name Engelbert clearly provides a link with Engelbert [I] van Breda who is shown above.  The name “Breda” is first associated with Hendrik [II] van Schoten.  One possibility is that his wife Christina was the heiress of Breda, maybe the daughter of Hendrik [I] Heer van Breda.  Another possibility is that Engelbert [II] van Schoten and Hendrik [I] Heer van Breda were cousins, the descendants of the former inheriting Breda after the latter died without direct heirs. 

 

1.         ENGELBERT [II] van Schoten (-after [1 Jan/24 Mar] 1161).  Europäische Stammtafeln names Engelbert van Schoten as the possible brother of [Gerard] van Breda, husband of Beatrix de Laroche, who is named above[208].  No indication has been found which indicates that this affiliation may be correct.  Henri Bishop of Liège confirmed donations to Villers abbey, including the donation of property “in eodem alodio de Villers” made by “Anselmus de Hunefes et Engelbertus de Scotel” by charter dated [4 Mar/23 Sep] 1153[209].  Godefroi III Duke of Brabant confirmed that “Engelbertus de Scotes” had donated “allodium suum...Scotis” to Villers by charter dated [1 Jan/24 Mar] 1161, witnessed by “Godefridus de Breda et Henricus frater eius, Willelmus de Dungleberc et Gerardus frater eius, Gerardus de marbas, Balduinus frater eius, et Paganus de Marbais...[210]

 

2.         HENDRIK [II] van Schoten (-[1187/92]).  It is likely that Hendrik [II] van Schoten was the son of Engelbert [II] van Schoten, although no primary source has been identified which confirms that this speculation is correct.  Engelbert [I] van Schoten was closely related to Hendrik [II], as shown by the charter dated to [1/28] Mar 1209 under which Henri I Duke of Brabant confirmed that “Godefridus de Scottis” resigned rights in “allodio de Scottis”, donated to Villers abbey by “Engelberto de Scottis” [Engelbert [II] van Schoten] and confirmed by “pater meus[211].  “Henricus de Scoten et uxor mea Christina et filii mei Godefridus, Henricus, Iacobus et Ingelbertus” donated “iuris et dominii in tota terra Crabbendic” to Ter Doest abbey by charter dated 1187, witnessed by “Philippus comes Flandrie...[212].  “Henricus de Scoten” granted toll exemptions to Ter Doest abbey by charter dated to 1187 or soon afterwards[213].  The editors of the Oorkondenboek Noord-Brabant note that the donor names himself “de Breda” on his seal attached to this document.  m CHRISTINA, daughter of --- (-after 1187).  “Henricus de Scoten et uxor mea Christina et filii mei Godefridus, Henricus, Iacobus et Ingelbertus” donated “iuris et dominii in tota terra Crabbendic” to Ter Doest abbey by charter dated 1187, witnessed by “Philippus comes Flandrie...[214].  No documentary evidence has been found indicating Christina’s family origin.  However, her son’s inheritance of Breda, and her husband being named “de Breda” in the source referred to above, suggest that she may have been heiress of the the heerlijkheid of Breda.  If that is correct, she may have been the daughter of Hendrik [I] Heer van Breda who is named above.  Hendrik [II] & his wife had four children:

a)         GODEFRID [II] van Schoten (-[1216/14 Apr 1218]).  “Henricus de Scoten et uxor mea Christina et filii mei Godefridus, Henricus, Iacobus et Ingelbertus” donated “iuris et dominii in tota terra Crabbendic” to Ter Doest abbey by charter dated 1187, witnessed by “Philippus comes Flandrie...[215].  Henri I Duke of Brabant confirmed privileges to the burgers of Vilvoorde, including rights “in allodio de Filfordia...Mersc...ab allodio domini Godefridi de Scoten in Percke”, by charter dated 1192, witnessed by “Albertus comes de Danesberge [not yet identified], Arnoldus de Diest, Gerardus et Arnoldus frater eius de Grymbergen, Daniel de Crayenhem, Reynerus de Ruysbroeck et Willellmus frater eorum, castellanus de Bruxella, Arnoldus de Wesenale...[216]Heer van Breda:  “Godefridus de Scoten” acknowledged holding “castellum de Breda cum omni allodio...infra locum...Haga” from Henri I Duke of Brabant and his wife by charter dated to [1198] which provides that “uxori mee” would hold the usufruct should he die “sine herede[217]

c)         JACOB van Schoten (-[1187/1203]).  “Henricus de Scoten et uxor mea Christina et filii mei Godefridus, Henricus, Iacobus et Ingelbertus” donated “iuris et dominii in tota terra Crabbendic” to Ter Doest abbey by charter dated 1187, witnessed by “Philippus comes Flandrie...[220]

d)         ENGELBERT van Schoten (-after 14 Feb 1203).  “Henricus de Scoten et uxor mea Christina et filii mei Godefridus, Henricus, Iacobus et Ingelbertus” donated “iuris et dominii in tota terra Crabbendic” to Ter Doest abbey by charter dated 1187, witnessed by “Philippus comes Flandrie...[221].  “Godefridus de Scoten” confirmed that “Walterus de Cruninghe” had donated property “in...terra de Morlodenesse inter Morlode et Wranga et Crabbendiche et Hinthecline” to Te Doest abbey, and that he “et uxor mea Luthghardis et frater meus Engelbertus” also donated their rights in the same property, by charter dated 14 Feb 1203[222]

1.         GODEFRID [III] van Breda ([1198/1200]-1227).  His approximate birth date is suggested by his mother’s presence in the charter dated [24 Mar 1217/14 Apr 1218] quoted below, which suggests that Godefrid was still a minor at the time, read with the charter dated 1219 in which he acted in his own name.  Heer van Breda.  “Luthgardis...domina de Breda et Godefridus filius meus” confirmed the resolution of a dispute between “vir nobilis Iohannes de Mere” and Villers abbey by charter dated [24 Mar 1217/14 Apr 1218][239].  “Lutgardis domina de Scotis” donated “duodecim libras Flandrensis monete...apud Serber et...apud Perke loco...Bukt” to Antwerp St. Michiel, with the consent of “liberis meis...Godefrido, Egidio, Henrico, Sophia et Beatrice”, by charter dated 19 Apr 1219[240].  “Godefridus dominus de Breda” confirmed that “quidam homines de Valkenissa” sold property to Ten Duinen abbey, and settled a dispute with “Heina de Berga”, by charter dated 1219[241].  A charter dated May 1223 records that Henri I Duke of Brabant confirmed “castrum et villa de Breda” to “Godefridus de Scoten”, just as “Godefridus pater dicti Godefridi” had held Breda, and confirmed navigation rights “in Scalda et Strena[242].  Henri I Duke of Brabant confirmed the settlement of a dispute between Villers abbey and “dominum Godefridum de Schotis” by charter dated 17 Jan 1226[243].  “Godefridus dominus de Breda...et dominus Henricus frater meus prepositus Cellensis” confirmed donations by charter dated 31 Jan 1226[244].  “Godefridus dominus de Breda” donated “decimam quam Iohannes de Mere miles a mei tenet in feodo...in parrochia de Marxhem” to Villers by charter dated [Jan/24 Apr] 1227[245]m (before [1220]) as her first husband, ODA, daughter of --- (-13 Jul ----).  The primary source which confirms the parentage of Godefrid´s wife has not yet been identified.  The date of her marriage is estimated from the fact that her son Godefrid [IV] names his own son in his testament dated 1246 (see below).  She married secondly (after 1227) Arnout [IV] Heer van Diest.  Her second marriage is indicated by the testament of [her son] "Godefridus dominus de Breda", dated 1246, which names "Arnoldo de Diest fratri meo… " [on the assumption that he was Arnout [V] Heer van Diest][246].  Her name is confirmed by the Chronicon Diestense which records that “Arnoldus...quartus” married “Yoda[247].  The necrology of Averbode records the death “III Id Jul” of “Yode domine de Dist que est hic sepulta[248].  Godefrid [III] & his wife had two children: 

a)         HENDRIK [III] van Breda (-[Aug 1234/13 Jan 1235]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated Jul 1228 under which [his paternal uncle and guardian] “Egidius de Breda” confirmed that “vir nobilis Iohannes de Mere” held “in feodum de domino de Breda infra diccum apud Marxem”, held from “eiusdem domini de Breda Henrici...adhuc puer” with the consent of “tutoris sui mei...patrui eius[249]Heer van Breda en Schoten.  “...Hermanns clericus domini Henrici de Breda...” witnessed the charter dated Aug 1234 under which Arnold Deacon of Antwerp confirmed an exchange of property[250].  His death is confirmed by a charter dated 25 Oct 1235 which relates to (among other matters) a dispute relating to property at “Berges” retained by “avocatus de Betunia racione filii nobilis viri Godefridi de Bredan novissime defuncti[251]

b)         GODEFRID [IV] van Breda (-25 Apr 1246)Heer van Breda.  A charter dated 13 Jan 1235 records that “Henricus de Lovanio maior natus ducis Lottharingie” guaranteed the safety of “Godefrido vero heredi de Breda[252].  Godefrid [IV] ruled under the guardianship of Robert [VII] de Béthune Heer van Dendermonde.  It is unclear why Godefrid’s uncle Gillis van Breda no longer acted as guardian.  No family relationship has been identified between Godefrid [IV] and Robert [VII], although as noted below Godefrid later married Robert’s daughter.  Arnold Abbot of Antwerp St. Michiel and “Robertus Atrebatensis advocatus Bethuniensis ac Tenremundensis dominus et tutor Godefridi pueri de Breeda” reached agreement relating to “Zantflite” by charter dated May 1239[253].  “Godefridus dominus de Breda” granted land “agriculturam de Cambe” to “Wilhelmo” subject to his service “vel filiam nostram nuptui tradere” by charter dated Jun 1243[254].  The testament of “Godefridus [dominus] de Breda”, dated 25 Apr 1246, chose burial at “Predicatoribus in Antwerpia”, bequeathed property to “Arnoldo de Diest fratri meo...super villas Scothen, Marxem et Ekeren...Henrico filio meo unico”, refers to “uxor mea”, appoints as executors “viros nobiles advocatum Bethunensem, dominum Henricum dictum Berthot et dominum Willelmum de Grinbergis[255].  Godefrid [IV] died on the same day, as shown by a charter of the same date which names “Godefridus bone memorie quondam dominus de Breeda[256].  Pope Innocent IV recorded that “Arnoldus natus nobilis viri Arnoldi domini de Disth” showed that “Godefridus dominus de Bredal germanus eiusdem Arnoldi” had bequeathed property to him, despite the challenge made by “Henricus de Bredal canonicus Leodiensis”, by bull dated 17 May 1249[257]m --- de Béthune, daughter of ROBERT [VII] de Béthune Heer van Dendermonde & his wife Elisabeth de Morialmes (-[before 7 Feb 1246]).  Klaversma indicates that the marriage contract of Mathilde de Béthune and Guy de Dampierre dated 7 Feb 1246 specified that Mathilde would receive “trois cents livrees de terre que li [=her father Robert de Béthune] avois...en la terre de Termonde...Godefroi de Breda por sa fille que il a pris fame[258].  The wording suggests that Godefrid’s wife was deceased at the time, which would explain why the property reverted to her sister.  Europäische Stammtafeln names her “Clementia” (a name regularly used in the Béthune family), but the primary source on which this information is based has not been identified[259].  As Godefrid [IV] had two children before he died (one referred to in Jun 1243), it is likely that his wife was Robert [VII]’s oldest daughter, probably married before [1242].  Godefrid [IV] & his wife had two children: 

i)          daughter (-after Jun 1243).  “Godefridus dominus de Breda” granted land “agriculturam de Cambe” to “Wilhelmo” subject to his service “vel filiam nostram nuptui tradere” by charter dated Jun 1243[260].  Presumably this daughter died soon afterwards unmarried as there is no question of her inheriting Breda. 

ii)         HENDRIK van Breda (-after 25 Apr 1246).  The testament of “Godefridus [dominus] de Breda”, dated 25 Apr 1246, bequeathed property to “...Henrico filio meo unico[261].  Hendrik must have died soon afterwards as his great-uncle Hendrik [IV] succeeded as Heer van Breda (see below). 

2.         GILLIS van Breda (-[May 1239/Apr 1246]).  Lutgardis domina de Scotis” donated “duodecim libras Flandrensis monete...apud Serber et...apud Perke loco...Bukt” to Antwerp St. Michiel, with the consent of “liberis meis...Godefrido, Egidio, Henrico, Sophia et Beatrice”, by charter dated 19 Apr 1219[262].  “Egidius de Breda” confirmed that “vir nobilis Iohannes de Mere” held “in feodum de domino de Breda infra diccum apud Marxem”, held from “eiusdem domini de Breda Henrici...adhuc puer” with the consent of “tutoris sui mei...patrui eius”, by charter dated Jul 1228[263].  A charter dated 1229 records an agreement between "dominum Egidium de Breda" and Ten Duinen abbey, confirmed by "Henricus…dux Lotharingiæ"[264].  A charter dated [21 Mar 1231/10 Apr 1232] confirms the testament of “Ludgarde domina de Breeda” made with the consent of “dominus Godefridus filius eius quamdiu vixit”, with the consent of “dominus Egidius frater predicti Godefridi, tutor filiorum fratris eiusdem...et dominus Henricus frater, maior in Traiecto decanus[265].  A charter dated 6 Dec 1232 records an agreement between Henri I Duke of Brabant and “dominum Egidium de Breda” regarding the return of property to Antwerp St. Michiel, compensation paid to “domini Alberti de Kuyc et Arnoldi de Wesemale”, confirming that “dominus dux” would hold “castrum de Breda” subject to “iure omnium heredum” while “domini Raso de Gauera et Arnoldus de Walem, Walterus de Pulle et Walterus dapifer sumptus castri de Breda” would be paid revenue from the land at Breda for upkeep of the castle, and that if “relicta domini Godefridi de Breda” died Gillis de Breda would possess “dotis” as “legitimus tutor”, by charter dated 6 Dec 1232[266].  He was replaced as his nephew’s guardian as shown by the charter dated May 1239 which records an agreement between the abbot of Antwerp St.Michiel and “Robertus Atrebatensis advocatus Bethuniensis et Tenremundensis dominus et tutor Godefridi pueri de Breeda” regarding disputes concerning “Zantflite”, witnessed by “...vir nobilis Egidius de Breeda...milites[267]

3.         HENDRIK [IV] van Breda (-[23 Jun 1252/25 Jun 1255]).  Lutgardis domina de Scotis” donated “duodecim libras Flandrensis monete...apud Serber et...apud Perke loco...Bukt” to Antwerp St. Michiel, with the consent of “liberis meis...Godefrido, Egidio, Henrico, Sophia et Beatrice”, by charter dated 19 Apr 1219[268].  Provost of Celles: “Godefridus dominus de Breda...et dominus Henricus frater meus prepositus Cellensis” confirmed donations by charter dated 31 Jan 1226[269].  Deacon at Utrecht St. Martin: “Henricus frater meus decanus sancti Martini de inferiori Traiecto...” witnessed the charter dated Jul 1228 under which “Egidius de Breda” confirmed that “vir nobilis Iohannes de Mere” held “in feodum de domino de Breda infra diccum apud Marxem”, held from “eiusdem domini de Breda Henrici...adhuc puer” with the consent of “tutoris sui mei...patrui eius[270].  A charter dated [21 Mar 1231/10 Apr 1232] confirms the testament of “Ludgarde domina de Breeda” made with the consent of “dominus Godefridus filius eius quamdiu vixit”, with the consent of “dominus Egidius frater predicti Godefridi, tutor filiorum fratris eiusdem...et dominus Henricus frater, maior in Traiecto decanus[271].  He succeeded his nephew Godefrid [IV] as Heer van Breda.  “Henricus dominus de Breda” granted property to “fideli nostro Henrico militi dicto Buffel” by charter dated 15 Jul 1246[272].  Oda Abbess of Nivelle and “Henricus dominus de Breda” reached agreement regarding “bonis de Bergen” by charter dated 18 Aug 1246[273].  Pope Innocent IV wrote to the archbishop of Köln regarding the excommunication of “Gobertum de Perewez quondam maiorem prepositem Traiectensem et Henricum de Breda Dauentrensem prepositum et maiorem decanum Traiectensem”” by bull dated 17 Aug 1246[274].  Canon at Liège:  Pope Innocent IV recorded that “Arnoldus natus nobilis viri Arnoldi domini de Disth” showed that “Godefridus dominus de Bredal germanus eiusdem Arnoldi” had bequeathed property to him, despite the challenge made by “Henricus de Bredal canonicus Leodiensis”, by bull dated 17 May 1249[275].  Soon after the date of this document Hendrik [IV] resigned his ecclesiastical appointments to marry.  “Henricus dominus de Breeda” confirmed that “Godefridus frater meus quondam dominus de Breeda et Godefridus filius dicti Godefridi et ego Henricus...heres et successor eorum” had donated property “apud Zantflite” to Antwerp St. Michiel by charter dated [1/26] Mar 1250[276].  “Henricus dominus de Breda...de consensu Elizabeth uxoris mee” donated “decimam meam apud Ekerne” to the curate of the church of Ekerne by charter dated 19 Jul 1251[277].  “Henricus dominus de Breda” granted privileges to the citizens of Breda by charter dated 23 Jun 1252[278]m ([17 May 1249/1250]) as her first husband, ISABELLE [Elisabeth], daughter of ---.  “Henricus dominus de Breda...de consensu Elizabeth uxoris mee” donated “decimam meam apud Ekerne” to the curate of the church of Ekerne by charter dated 19 Jul 1251[279].  No indication has been found of the family origin of Isabelle/Elisabeth.  “Raso dominus de Lydekerke tutor Henrici directi heredis Heinrici bone memorie domini de Breda” granted “terram...Nuescakersloc” to “Balduino militi filio Popponis de Stauenisse” by charter dated 25 Jun 1255, sealed by “nobilis Ysabele matris Heinrici predicti domini de Breda[280].  She married secondly (before Aug 1260) Pieter van Marbais Heer van Roseil.  “Petrus miles de Marbaes et dominus de Roseel” granted property “in loco...Polre apud Bergen et...apud Wlte Wesel” to “Servatio filio Iuten”, with the consent of “Elisabeth domine de Breda uxoris ac domine mee”, by charter dated Aug 1260[281].  Hendrik [IV] & his wife had two children:

b)         ISABELLA van Breda (-10/11 Feb [1280/81]).  The late 13th century genealogy by Balduinus de Avennis records that "de Lovanio…Arnulphus" married "hæredem terræ de Breda" but was childless[296].  The date of her marriage is established by the charter dated 5 Nov 1268 which is quoted below.  Vrouw van Breda.  “Yzenbele vrouwe van Breda...doihcter mins her Henrics, sheren van Breda, ende mine Arnout van Louene min...man, here van Breda ende min monbore” sold property by charter dated 1 May 1269[297].  "Arnoldus de Lovanio dominus de Breda et Elisabeth uxor eius" enfeoffed "fideli suo Nicolas de Cats militia" with "hæredibus…in Offendrecht" by charter dated 1270[298].  "Arnoldus de Lovanio dominus de Breda et Elisabeth eius uxor eiusdem terræ domina" donated property to the abbey at Scaldim by charter dated 5 Apr 1276, signed by "dominus Henricus de Lovanio dominus de Harstallo, dominus Waltherus Berthout dominus de Mechlinia…"[299].  A charter dated 17 Apr 1281 records that "la terre de Breda" had reverted to "Jean duc de Brebant" after the death of "Isabelle femme d´Arnou de Lovain nostre cousin iadis dame de Breda"[300]m (before 5 Nov 1268) ARNAUD de Louvain Heer van Gaesbeck en Herstal, son of GODEFROI de Brabant Heer van Gaesbeek en Herstal & his wife Marie van Oudenaarde (-22 Jun 1287).  [“Arnoldus a Lovanio dominus de Breda” granted freedoms to “homines ville de Oisterhout” by charter dated 29 Jun 1262[301].  This document is probably misdated as Hendrik [V] was still Heer van Breda at that date.]  Heer van Breda: “Arnoldus de Gasebeke tutor legitimus et dominus terre de Breda” donated property to Roosendaal by charter dated 5 Nov 1268[302].  Arnaud resigned Breda (apparently temporarily) in favour of his brother Henri in [1273], although the circumstances of this transfer have not been ascertained. 

4.         SOPHIE van Breda (-after Aug 1232).  “Lutgardis domina de Scotis” donated “duodecim libras Flandrensis monete...apud Serber et...apud Perke loco...Bukt” to Antwerp St. Michiel, with the consent of “liberis meis...Godefrido, Egidio, Henrico, Sophia et Beatrice”, by charter dated 19 Apr 1219[303].  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 30 Mar 1257 under which “Raso miles dominus de Liedkerke tutor Henrici legitimi heredis de Breda” granted “terram...Agger” to “Henrico militi dicto Buffel” recording the conditions imposed by “Henricus bone memorie avunculus noster dominus de Breda[304].  "Razzo dominus de Gavera pincerna Flandriæ et…Sophia uxor eius" founded "capellaniam in castro nostro apud Lidekerke" for Ninove, and confirmed donations made by "bonæ memoriæ Razzo dominus de Gavera pater mei Razzonis", by charter dated Jan 1232[305].  “Rasse seigneur de Gavre” donated harvest to Epinlieu abbey, for the souls of himself “[son]...épouse Sophie, de leurs enfants...”, by charter dated Aug 1232[306].  Breda was inherited by her grandson after the death in [1280/81] of her niece Isabella.  m RASO [VIII] van Gavre, son of --- (-1241).

Chapter 7.    HEREN van BREDERODE

 

 

The castle of Brederode is located near Santpoort-Zuid, near the Dutch coast in the present-day province of Noord-Holland north of Haarlem. 

 

 

[Two siblings].  Their parents have not been identified.  As noted below, this family group is referenced in a single charter about whose authenticity there must be doubts, as discussed below under Christina “comitissa de Lienden”.  Because of these doubts, all the individuals in this group are shown in square brackets. 

1.         [--- van Brederodem MARGARITA, daughter of ---.  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated Nov 1203 under which her daughter and son “Christina comitissa de Lienden uxor Willelmi qui nunc agit in Terra Sancta cum Theodorico domino de Brederode fratre meo” donated property "cum silvis et dominio Armenvorst", granted by "domina Margarita matre mea", to Köln St Clement[310].  Two children:] 

a)         [DIRK [I] van Brederode (-after 1203).  Heer van Brederode.  “Christina comitissa de Lienden uxor Willelmi qui nunc agit in Terra Sancta cum Theodorico domino de Brederode fratre meo” donated property "cum silvis et dominio Armenvorst", granted by "domina Margarita matre mea", to Köln St Clement by charter dated Nov 1203 witnessed by "Bernardus comes de Lip, Willelmus dominus de Brederode…dominus Joannes de Arckel…dominus Simon van Renen"[311].] 

b)         [CHRISTINA van Brederode (-after 1203).  “Christina comitissa de Lienden uxor Willelmi qui nunc agit in Terra Sancta cum Theodorico domino de Brederode fratre meo” donated property "cum silvis et dominio Armenvorst", granted by "domina Margarita matre mea", to Köln St Clement by charter dated Nov 1203 witnessed by "Bernardus comes de Lip, Willelmus dominus de Brederode…dominus Joannes de Arckel…"[312].  Accoding to Butkens in his Annales Généalogiques de la Maison de Lynden, the donor’s husband was Willem [II] Heer van Linden[313].  If that is correct, Christina could not have been “comitissa” by right of her husband.  There appear to be two possible explanations.  Firstly, she could have been the widow of a count, who was her first husband, and continued to use the title for the rest of her life, in line with common practice at the time.  Secondly, the charter in question is spurious.  The dubious nature of the charter is also suggested by other factors.  The document represents the only reference to this early Brederode family group.  It also gives the comital title to Bernhard Herr zur Lippe, which suggests it may be anachronistic.  In addition, Butkens in his 1626 work reproduces the charter in medieval German[314], which is clearly anachronistic and suggests some later manipulation of the document.  Butkens’s document is one of several supposed early medieval German charters included in his compilation.  The suspicion is that this whole series of documents was fabricated to provide a more illustrious ancestry for the Linden family which is the subject of the work.  [m firstly --- Graaf van ---.]  m [secondly] WILLEM [II] Heer van Linden, son of FLORIS Heer van Linden & his wife Agnes van Wachtendonk.]

Chapter 13.  HEREN van HORN

 

 

The lordships of Horn, Kuyc and Kessel emerged on the left bank of the Maas in the area of the pagus Maasgau[505].  Horn was situated on the left bank of the river Maas, north-east of the county of Looz and south of the county of Kessel, the town of Weert later becoming its capital[506].  The territory is today located in the province of Limburg, in the south-east of the kingdom of The Netherlands.  The lordship of Horn consisted originally of the villages of Horn, Haelen, Buggenum, Nunhem, Heythuyzen, Roggel and Neer, which van de Boel suggests formed part of the “county of Hocht/Huste” [not yet identified] in the 10th century[507].  A useful description of the territorial extent of the lordship of Horn in the 13th century is provided by the charter dated Aug 1243 under which Willem [II] Heer van Horn declared the fiefdoms which he held from the comte de Looz[508]

 

According to Wolters, the Heren van Horn descended from Immo Comte de Looz (see LOWER LOTHARINGIAN NOBILITY) but his sources are incomplete and those which he does cite do not inspire confidence in the accuracy of the suggested descent[509].  In particular, the Vita Andreæ, first abbot of Averboden, in the Chronicle written by Nicolas Hogeland Abbot of Middelburg, names in 1131 "Theodoricum de Los primum dominum de Hornes", identified as Thierry son of Immo Comte de Looz[510].  Klaversma notes that this source is a 17th century forgery and is therefore unreliable[511]

 

 

The information available from primary source documentation is insufficiently precise to guess with any confidence at the family relationships between the first five individuals of the Horn family who are named below. 

 

1.         ENGELBERT [I] van Horn (-after 1102).  “Comes Gerhardus [de Gelren], Engelbertus castellanus et frater eius dominus Walterus, dominus Wilhelmus et dominus Rogerus de Kesnic, dominus Vdo de Lo. et dominus Engelbertus de Hurne...” witnessed the charter dated 1102 under which “Anselmus” offered “filiam meam Methildem” to Thorn abbey “per manus Gerhardi comitis de Gelren[512]

 

2.         --- van Horn (-killed in battle 1146).  The Chronicon Diestense records that “Arnoldus [...vel Arnulphus dominus de Diest], domini de Wezemael, de Rotselaer, de Bierbaco, de Leefdale, Hoerne, Transingys, Ravies” were killed in battle in 1146[513]

 

3.         ENGELBERT [II] van Horn (-after 22 Feb 1166).  "…Engelbertus de Hornin…" witnessed the charter dated to [1138/44] which records the ratification of the exchange of property between "Godescalcus…frater comitis Gerhardi de Lo" and the church of Rees[514].  Reinald Archbishop of Köln confirmed the foundation of a monastery at "castrum suum Mere" by "matrona Hildegundis cometissa de Are…filii sui Herimanni quem tunc unicum habebat", for the soul of "filii sui Theoderici quondam comitis Arensis", by charter dated 22 Feb 1166, witnessed by "…Engilbertus de Hurnen…"[515]

 

4.         WILLEM [I] van Horn (-after 1189).  Willem van Horn is named in a charter dated 1189 under which “Rutger van Mereheim” donated property to Kamp abbey before leaving on crusade[516].  The register of the archives of Roermond include a reference to “Theodericus aartsdiaken van Luik” confirming the donation of “Winricus mansus in Linna...rechten en allodia te Bemela” made by “Rutger van Mereheym” to Kamp abbey on leaving for crusade, dated 1189 at Meerheim, witnessed by “...Willem van Hornen, Dirk van Altena en zijn zoon Boudewijn, de voogd van Roermond, Herman van Holcho...[517].  [“...Duo fratres de Hornen, Otto de Buren...” witnessed the charter dated 1191 under which “Otto...comes Gelrie et Rychardis uxor mea” donated property “in curia Putten” to Werden abbey[518].  The names of the two brothers are not stated in the document but, from a chronological point of view only, it is possible that they were Willem [I] and Engelbert [III].] 

 

5.         ENGELBERT [III] van Horn (-after 1203).  [“...Duo fratres de Hornen, Otto de Buren...” witnessed the charter dated 1191 under which “Otto...comes Gelrie et Rychardis uxor mea” donated property “in curia Putten” to Werden abbey[519].  The names of the two brothers are not stated in the document but, from a chronological point of view only, it is possible that they were Willem [I] and Engelbert [III].]  “...Egelbertus de Horne...” is named as present in a charter dated 6 Mar 1196 which records a treaty between Henri Duke of Brabant and “comitem Gelriæ[520].  “...Egelbertus de Horne...” witnessed the charter dated 1203 which records a treaty between Otto Graaf van Gelre and Henri Duke of Brabant[521]

 

 

1.         GERARD [I] van Horn (-after 1220).  Heer van Horn.  "…Gerardus de Hürne…" is named as present in a charter dated Aug 1220 under which records the peace agreement between Engelbert Archbishop of Köln and "dominum Walramum comitem de Luzelenburch"[522].  "…comes de Lon, Gerhardus de Hurne et socer eius, Hermannus nobilis advocatus…" witnessed the charter dated 1220 under which Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the foundation of the church of Rade near Suchtelen[523]

 

 

1.         --- van Horn .  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that this person is the same as Willem [I] van Horn who is named above.  If that is correct, it may help explain the joint appearance of members of the Horn and Altena families as witnesses to the 1189 document which is quoted above, assuming that this person´s wife was a member of the Altena family as suggested below.  m [--- van Altena, daughter of ---.  The documentation which suggests that the first wife of Dirk [III] van Altena was the paternal aunt of the two brothers Willem and Engelbert van Horne is discussed below.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[524].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk [III] van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[525].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[526].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  The hypothesis also appears corroborated by the succession of her grandson Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47].  Two children: 

a)         WILLEM [II] van Horn (-[1237/41]).  Heer van Horn.  A charter dated 15 May 1219 confirmed that the abbey of St Pantaleon, Köln granted "villam in Wishem" to "Wilhelmo de Hürne, viro nobili, advocato in Wishem", witnessed by "Nobiles, Theodericus de Althena…"[527].  Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden by charter dated 1224 which refers to the donation "in villa de Brusthem" by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[528].  "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland by charter dated 7 May 1230 witnessed by "Nicholaus de Putte, Willelmus de Striene…"[529].  "Theodericus dominus de Altena" granted property at Schalwijk to certain men of Zeeland by charter dated 8 Aug 1233, witnessed by "Wilhelmus et Engelbertus de Horne, Rutgerus de Wickerode…"[530].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena" by charter dated 1235[531].  Willem van Horn witnessed the charter dated 1237 under which Otto Graaf van Gelre reached agreement with Hendrik Heer van ´s Heerenberg concerning the advocacy of Emmerick[532].  A charter dated 26 Jun 1241 records the reconciliation of "Th doctus dominus in Altena" with "Nicolaus dictus de Ema et Henricus filius suus ministeriales nostri", naming "domino Wilhelmo de Horne et fratre suo domino Engelberto…dominus Wilhelmus dictus de Strina…" among the fiduciaries[533]m ---.  The name of Willem´s wife is not known.  Willem [II] & his wife had two children: 

i)          WILLEM [III] van Horn (-1264, bur Keysersbosch)Heer van Horn.  "Wilhelmus dominus de Altena et de Horne" acknowledged holding "grefliche gerichte…in Geystingis…" in fief from "domino meo comite de Loos" by charter dated 1243[534]

-         see below

ii)         A--- van Horn (-after 27 Jul 1260).  "Theodericus comes Clevensis et Theodericus frater eius dictus Lof" settled a dispute between “Johannes dominus de Huesden” and “dominus Robertus et dominus Henricus fratres eius”, with the advice of “Ottonis comitis Ghelrensis, W. domini de Altena, domini A. fratris eius, Th. domini de Herlar, H. de Merwyc et aliorum consanguineorum suorum...”, by charter dated 27 Jul 1260[535]

b)         ENGELBERT van Horn .  Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden by charter dated 1224 which refers to the donation "in villa de Brusthem" by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[536].  "Theodericus dominus de Altena" granted property at Schalwijk to certain men of Zeeland by charter dated 8 Aug 1233, witnessed by "Wilhelmus et Engelbertus de Horne, Rutgerus de Wickerode…"[537].  A charter dated 26 Jun 1241 records the reconciliation of "Th doctus dominus in Altena" with "Nicolaus dictus de Ema et Henricus filius suus ministeriales nostri", naming "domino Wilhelmo de Horne et fratre suo domino Engelberto…dominus Wilhelmus dictus de Strina…" among the fiduciaries[538]

2.         [MARIA [van Horn] (-after 1224)"Theodoricus dominus de Autena" donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden, with the consent of "uxoris nostræ Mariæ et nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi", by charter dated 1212[539].  Her suggested parentage is based on the following reasoning.  The “nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi" in this 1212 document can be identified as Engelbert and Willem van Horn.  However, the sources appear contradictory regarding the precise relationship link between the Altena and Horn families.  Under a charter dated 1224, Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden and noted the donation "in villa de Brusthem" which was made by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[540].  This is similar wording to the 1212 document.  For present purposes it is assumed that "nepotum" can be interpreted in these two documents in its strict sense of nephew.  The presence of the wife of Dirk [III] van Altena in both documents suggests that the donor´s relationship with the Horn brothers was through her, which suggests that Dirk [III]´s wife was the paternal aunt of the two brothers.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[541].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk [III] van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[542].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[543].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  This second line of argument also appears corroborated by the succession of Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47], which is more easily explained if he was descended from Dirk [III]´s sister.  m DIRK [III] Heer van Altena, son of --- (-[26 Jun 1241/1247]).] 

 

 

WILLEM [III] van Horn, son of WILLEM [II] Heer van Horn & his wife --- van Altena (-1264, bur Keysersbosch)Heer van Horn.  Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden by charter dated 1224 which refers to the donation "in villa de Brusthem" by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[544].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Altena et de Horne" acknowledged holding "grefliche gerichte…in Geystingis…" in fief from "domino meo comite de Loos" by charter dated 1243[545].  Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode by charter dated 1244[546].  Heer van Altena [1241/47].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Altena" confirmed “decimas in Woldrichem in Alle et dimidiam partem decimarum in Gesen” to Utrecht by charter dated 21 Mar 1259[547].  "Theodericus comes Clevensis et Theodericus frater eius dictus Lof" settled a dispute between “Johannes dominus de Huesden” and “dominus Robertus et dominus Henricus fratres eius”, with the advice of “Ottonis comitis Ghelrensis, W. domini de Altena, domini A. fratris eius, Th. domini de Herlar, H. de Merwyc et aliorum consanguineorum suorum...”, by charter dated 27 Jul 1260[548]

m ---.  The name of Willem´s wife is not known. 

Willem [III] & his wife had two children: 

1.         WILLEM [IV] van Horn (-killed in battle Zierickzee 1304, bur Keysersbosch)Heer van Horn.  Jean Duke of Brabant granted revenue (“redditus nostros”) from “Buscho-Ducis...Laet et Ghieleyde”, after the death (“post decessum”) of “dominæ Mariæ quondam uxoris domini de Peruwez bonæ memoriæ dominæ de Ninive”, to "Domino Willelmo domino de Hoern" by charter dated 2 Feb 1271, witnessed by "Henricus de Lovanio dominus de Harstallio, Walterus Berthout dominus Magliniæ et Henricus dominus de Bautershem"[549].  The wording of the document suggests that Marie was still alive at the time and that the grant would take place after her death.  "Wilhelmus de Althena et de Horne dominus et Wilhelmus filius suus primogenitus" granted “decimam de Uppel” to “nos Lodowico kastellano”, provided that “uxor sua et filii sui” transfer it to “Beatrici filie sue cum Johanne de Merwede viro eius”, by charter dated 25 Apr 1277[550].  "Willelmus dominus de Horne et Altena" donated property to Keyserbosch, with the consent of "Willelmo primogenito nostro", by charter dated 1285[551].  "Willem ridder van Hoorne heere van Outena" sold half of property “in Vorenzaterwairt” to “onsen...neve den heren Willem heere van Striene” by charter dated 2 Feb 1285[552].  The relationship between the Horn and Strijen families has not been traced.  "...Willem here van Horne riddere..." is named as present in the charter dated 12 Jun 1290 under which Floris V Count of Holland granted property to "Claise van Cats"[553].  "Willelmus dominus de Horne et Willelmus primogenitus eius milites et Theodericus eiusdem domini Willelmi filius præpositus ecclesiæ Trajectensis inferioris" swore allegiance to "Ioannem ducem Lotharingiæ, Brabantiæ et Limburgi" by charter dated 1193 (misdated, 1293?)[554].  "Willem heere van Hoerne ende van Altena, ende Diederic provost van Sinte Salvatoere in Utrecht, sone des voirseyds heeren Willems, ende Willem, riddere, des voirsz. heeren Willems oudste sone, ende Gherard, ridder, syn joncste sone, ende Engelbrecht canonic van Sente lambrechts te Ludeke, sone des voirgenoemde heeren Willems" proclaimed their innonence in the assassination of Floris V Count of Holland by letters dated 12 Feb 1299[555].  [m firstly MARGUERITE de Looz, daughter of ARNAUD [IV] Comte de Looz & his wife Jeanne de Chiny (-before 1275).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed only by a monumental inscription at the Carmelite Abbey in Brussels which records the death of her son "monseinour ly cuens Geerarts sire de Hornes, Wiert, Altena, etc., grand-veneur héréditable de l´Empire…fieulx à monseinour ly cuens Willaumes, sire des dits lieux, et à madame Marguerite, fiele a ly cuens Arnould de Looz"[556].  This inscription is discussed in detail by van de Boel who suggests that it is unreliable as a later production[557].  The language clearly indicates that the inscription is not contemporary.  However, it is not known whether it might have been based on information from earlier reliable sources.  This possibility should not be dismissed as other parts of the same inscription, relating to other members of the Horn family, are corroborated by other documentation.  A connection between the Looz and Horn families is indicated by the confirmation given by Arnaud [V] Comte de Looz to Geraard van Horn for his grant of property to his wife (see below).  However, the document in question does not specify any family relationship between the two, in contrast to the case of one of the witnesses whom Comte Arnaud describes as “nostrum consanguineum”.  It is possible, therefore, that the confirmation was given only because Comte Arnaud was Gerard´s suzerain.  The chronology of the Looz family indicates that it is possible for a daughter of Comte Arnaud [V] to have married Willem [IV] van Horn.]  m [secondly] AGNES, daughter of --- (-after 1275).  “Willelmus vir nobilis dominus de Horne” sold property “in Blarthem, que dominus dux nobis allodialia reddidit” to “Henrico dicto Coman opidano in Buscho”, with the consent of “Agnes uxor ipsius domini de Horne”, by charter dated 1 Oct 1271[558].  Van de Boel cites another source which names “een vrouwe van Horn...Agnes” in a 1275 donation to Keiserbosch[559].  He suggests that the wife of Willem [III] was related to the Perwez/Brabant family.  m [thirdly] (before 13 Jun 1278) ALEIDIS van Bernhamme, daughter of ---.  “Wilhelmus nobilis vir de Horne miles” and his wife “Aleijdis de Bernhamme” donated property to Klooster Bethelehem near Doetinchem by charter dated 13 Jun 1278[560].  Willem [IV] & his [first] wife had four children:

Chapter 22.  HEREN van RENEN

 

 

The Renen family was closely associated with the bishopric of Utrecht.  A possible connection with the Brabant family of Aarschot is highlighted below.  Family members were also Burggraven van Utrecht from the mid-12th century.  The family properties passed to the Heren van Kuyc in the late 12th century. 

1.         GODFRIED van Renen (-after 18 Oct 1145).  "Godfried van Renen" is named in charters at Utrecht dated 1105, 1118, 1125 (three), 1129, 1139, 1145 and 1169[845].  "…Godefridus de Rinen et filius eius Hugo…" witnessed a charter dated 18 Oct 1145 under which Heinrich III King of Germany confirmed the rights of the church of Utrecht in the counties of Oostergau and Westergau[846].  Coldeweij speculates that Godfried van Renen may have been the same person as Godfried van Aarschot, pointing out that "the Renen family owned property in Perk, Anderlecht and Dilbeek near Brussels. This was the area where the oldest lands of  the counts of Leuven lay"[847].  In this scenario, Godfried van Aarschot would not have been the ancestor of the van Lier family (this question is discussed more fully in the document BRABANT, LOUVAIN).  m [firstly] SOPHIA van Bemmel, daughter of DIRK van Bemmel & his wife ---.  Coldewuij suggests that "Godfried van Renen-Aarschot" (identified as the future husband of Emmissa de Valenciennes) married Sophia van Bemmel as his first wife, by whom he fathered the six children shown below[848].  [m secondly ---.]  Godfried & his [first] wife had six children:

c)         GODFRIED van Renen (-27 May 1178).  The Kronik van Arent toe Bocop records that "Godffridus van Rennen" was installed in 1156 as twenty-eighth bishop of Utrecht, died 27 May 1178 and was buried in Utrecht cathedral[856]Bishop of Utrecht 1156.  Bishop Godfried´s testament dated 9 Apr 1178 names "pater meus Godefridus de Renen" and refers to the distribution of his possessions "de Brabantia" to his three sons "Theoderico, Gerlaco et Arnoldo clerico" and to "Hugoni fratri meo, et michi Godefrido, et sorori Helewigi", with reversion to “Godefridus cognatus meus...filiis...Sophie neptis mee et Henricus de Kuc[857]

Chapter 23.  HEREN van RENESSE

 

 

Renesse is a village located on the northern coast of the island of Schouwen-Duiveland, the northern-most island in the present-day Dutch province of Zeeland.  Two charters, dated 2 Jan 1279 and 15 May 1229 both of which are quoted below, suggest that the Renesse family originated either in Zierikzee on the southern coast of the same island or on the adjacent island of Goeree-Overflakkee to the north.  The family acquired its interest in Renesse after exchanging property with Floris V Count of Holland as recorded in the 1229 charter. 

 

 

Three family groups, possibly related to each other as they are all named in the same charter.  Only the first of these families is stated in the charter to be directly connected with Zierikzee.  The precise relationships between the three groups have not been ascertained, and the precise chronology of their lives is impossible to determine on the basis only of the charter dated 2 Jan 1279 in which they are named.  The area named Dirksland in the document is located on Goeree-Overflakkee, the island which lies to the north of Schouwen-Duiveland. 

 

1.         DIRK van Zierikzee [Serixe] .  He is named in the charter dated 2 Jan 1279 quoted below.  m ---.  The name of Dirk’s wife is not known.  Dirk & his wife had two children: 

a)         HUGO van Zierikzee .  Floris V Count of Holland granted "terram...Diederixland...inter aquas...Sonnemaer et Greveninghem", which had been held by “filiorum Theoderici de Zerixsee, domini Hugonis dicti condam de Zerixsee et Johannis fratris sui, Wolfaerdi et Dancardi filiorum Pauline fratrum, Colini et Hellinx filiorum Johannis fratrum”, to “domino Aelberto domino de Vorne” by charter dated 2 Jan 1279[863]

b)         JAN van Zierikzee .  Floris V Count of Holland granted "terram...Diederixland...inter aquas...Sonnemaer et Greveninghem", which had been held by “filiorum Theoderici de Zerixsee, domini Hugonis dicti condam de Zerixsee et Johannis fratris sui, Wolfaerdi et Dancardi filiorum Pauline fratrum, Colini et Hellinx filiorum Johannis fratrum”, to “domino Aelberto domino de Vorne” by charter dated 2 Jan 1279[864]

 

2.         PAUL .  He is named in the charter dated 2 Jan 1279 quoted below.  m ---.  The name of Paul’s wife is not known.  Paul & his wife had two children: 

a)         WOLFARD .  Floris V Count of Holland granted "terram...Diederixland...inter aquas...Sonnemaer et Greveninghem", which had been held by “filiorum Theoderici de Zerixsee, domini Hugonis dicti condam de Zerixsee et Johannis fratris sui, Wolfaerdi et Dancardi filiorum Pauline fratrum, Colini et Hellinx filiorum Johannis fratrum”, to “domino Aelberto domino de Vorne” by charter dated 2 Jan 1279[865]

b)         DANCARD .  Floris V Count of Holland granted "terram...Diederixland...inter aquas...Sonnemaer et Greveninghem", which had been held by “filiorum Theoderici de Zerixsee, domini Hugonis dicti condam de Zerixsee et Johannis fratris sui, Wolfaerdi et Dancardi filiorum Pauline fratrum, Colini et Hellinx filiorum Johannis fratrum”, to “domino Aelberto domino de Vorne” by charter dated 2 Jan 1279[866]

 

3.         JAN .  He is named in the charter dated 2 Jan 1279 quoted below.  m ---.  The name of Jan’s wife is not known.  Jan & his wife had two children: 

a)         COLIJN .  Floris V Count of Holland granted "terram...Diederixland...inter aquas...Sonnemaer et Greveninghem", which had been held by “filiorum Theoderici de Zerixsee, domini Hugonis dicti condam de Zerixsee et Johannis fratris sui, Wolfaerdi et Dancardi filiorum Pauline fratrum, Colini et Hellinx filiorum Johannis fratrum”, to “domino Aelberto domino de Vorne” by charter dated 2 Jan 1279[867]

b)         HELLINX .  Floris V Count of Holland granted "terram...Diederixland...inter aquas...Sonnemaer et Greveninghem", which had been held by “filiorum Theoderici de Zerixsee, domini Hugonis dicti condam de Zerixsee et Johannis fratris sui, Wolfaerdi et Dancardi filiorum Pauline fratrum, Colini et Hellinx filiorum Johannis fratrum”, to “domino Aelberto domino de Vorne” by charter dated 2 Jan 1279[868]

 

 

The family connection, if any, between Costijn [I] van Zierikzee and the above-named Zierikzee/Dirksland families has not been ascertained.  Could he have been the same person who is named as “Colini” in the charter dated 2 Jan 1279 as noted above? 

 

1.         COSTIJN [I] van Zierikzee [van Renesse] (-after 2 Jul 1244).  He established himself at Renesse after 15 May 1229, the date of a charter under which Floris IV Count of Holland exchanged "minen haimannen ende dunen vanden westendeel van Scouden wtgenomen Burch ende Haemstede" for property “in Sericze” with “heren Costijn[869].  Willem II Count of Holland renewed the toll concessions of Dunes abbey by charter dated 2 Jul 1244 "in domini Costini militis domo apud Rietnesse[870]m (before [1235/40]) as her first husband, HILDEGUNDE van Voorne, daughter of HENDRIK Heer van Voorne & his [first] wife --- ([1220/25]-5 Apr 1302).  Her two marriages are indicated by the charter dated 7 Feb 1292 under which [her son] "Johannes de Renisse miles" swore allegiance to Floris V Count of Holland, naming “Johannem de Renisse filium meum et Johannem filium quondam domini Costini de Renisse militis fratris mei bone memorie...dominum Theodericum de Brederode militem fratrem meum” as fiduciaries[871].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.  The date of her first marriage is set by the probable birth of her son Jan [I] van Renesse in [1235/40].  If that is correct, Hildegunde must have been born in [1220/25], which suggests that she was considerably older than her brother Albert van Voorne, and may have been born from a different marriage.  She married secondly (after Jul 1244, maybe before Jan 1250) Willem [I] Heer van Brederode, son of --- (-3 Jun 1285).  Costijn [I] & his wife had two children:
