INTRODUCTION

 

 

The duchy of Lorraine was the rump of the early medieval duchy of Upper Lotharingia, centred on Nancy.  The difficulty is pinpointing the date when "Lotharingia" transformed into "Lorraine".  This document sets out the family of the dukes from the accession of the Matfriede dynasty in the mid-11th century.  However, as can be seen below, contemporary sources continue to refer to the duke as "dux Lotharingiæ" until well into the 14th century.  The duchy remained within imperial territory, the dukes being suzerains of the emperor/king of Germany.  However, Lorraine gradually lost status and territory, especially after the rise of the comtes de Bar to the west of the duchy.  Lorraine was even briefly placed under the suzerainty of Bar during the early years of the 13th century[1].  Duke Thibaut I became embroiled in the dispute over the succession to the county of Champagne between 1216 and 1218, when Friedrich II King of Germany invaded Lorraine and took the duke back to Germany as a prisoner. 

 

The gradual assimilation of Lorraine into the French sphere of influence started with the reign of Duke Raoul, who succeeded in 1329 and spent most of his reign at the court of Philippe VI King of France.  A significant increase in the number of marriages into French comital families can be observed from the end of the 13th century.  However, formal French acquisition of Lorraine territory did not accelerate until the mid-17th century, and the duchy was only finally annexed by the kingdom of France in 1766 after the death of Stanislas Leszczinski Duke of Lorraine, who was the father-in-law of King Louis XV.

A.      DUKES of LORRAINE 1048-1431

 

 

GERARD, son of GERHARD Graf [von Metz] & his wife Gisela --- (-Remiremont [14 Apr] or 11 Aug [1070]).  The Notitiæ Fundationis Monasterii Bosonis-Villæ names (in order) "Adalbertus, Gerhardus, Cuonradus, Adalbero, Beatrix, Cuono, Huoda abbatissa, Azelinus, Ida, Adeleth" as children of "Gerhardus comes [et] Gisela"[2].  In an earlier passage, the same source names "Odelrico comite et Gerhardo duce" as sons and successors of "Gerhardus comes marchio [et] cum uxore sua Gisela"[3].  Comte de Metz, Comte de Châtenois.  Emperor Heinrich III appointed him as GERARD Duke of Upper Lotharingia after his brother was killed in battle in Nov 1048.  The dating clause of a charter dated 15 Oct 1062, which records a judgment of Udo Bishop of Toul, states “regnante Henrico IV Rom. Rege, Duce Gerardo, Ardulpho Tullensi comite...[4].  "Gerardus…Lothariensium dux" donated property to Echternach abbey by charter dated 11 Apr 1067 which names "uxoris mea Hadvidis filiique nostre Theoderici…patris mei Gerhardi matrisque meæ Gislæ"[5].  According to the 14th century chronicle of Jean de Bayon, Duke Gérard was poisoned[6].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "11 Aug" of "Gerardus dux"[7]

m HADWIDE de Namur, daughter of ALBERT I Comte de Namur & his wife Ermengarde of Lower Lotharingia [Carolingian] ([1005/10]-28 Jan [1080]).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Hadewidem et Emmam de Los" as the two daughters of "Ermengardis [filiæ Karoli ducis]" and as mother of "Theodericum ducem et Gerardum comitem fratres"[8].  It is likely that Hedwig was born during that latter part of the married life of her parents, given her own death in [1080] and her father's death before 1010.  The Liber Memoriales of Remiremont records the donation of "Haduydis ducissa…consentientibus filiis suis duce Teoderico atque comite Girardo"[9].  "Hadewidis ductrix" founded the abbey of Châtenois by charter dated to after 1075, confirmed "post obitum ductricis Hadewidis" by "dux Theodericus filius eius"[10].  The Codex de l’Angelica records “Haduydis ducissa” donating a serf to Remiremont, with the consent of “filiis suis duce Theoderico atque comite Girardo”, undated[11]

Duke Gérard & his wife had four children: 

1.         THIERRY de Lorraine (-30 Dec 1115).  The Notitiæ Fundationis Monasterii Bosonis-Villæ records the succession of "dux Theodericus puer parvulus Gerhardi ducis filius"[12], although, considering the estimated birth date range of his mother, Thierry must have been adult when his father died.  He succeeded his father in 1070 as THIERRY II Duke of Lorraine, opposed by his brother to whom he ceded territories which became the county of Vaudémont in Apr 1073 after waging war for two years.  Weakened by this conflict, Louis Comte de Mousson claimed the title duke from Duke Thierry.  "Hadewidis ductrix" founded the abbey of Châtenois by charter dated to after 1075, confirmed "post obitum ductricis Hadewidis" by "dux Theodericus filius eius"[13].  The Codex de l’Angelica records “Haduydis ducissa” donating a serf to Remiremont, with the consent of “filiis suis duce Theoderico atque comite Girardo”, undated[14].  During the investiture crisis, Duke Thierry supported Emperor Heinrich IV who enabled him to take control of Metz after expelling Hermann Bishop of Metz[15].  Pibo Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis" by charter dated 10 Oct 1091[16].  Emperor Heinrich V granted him the title "Marquis" in [1114][17].  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[18].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "30 Dec" of "Theodoricus dux"[19]m firstly ([1080]) as her second husband, HEDWIG von Formbach, widow of GERHARD von Süpplingenburg Graf im Harzgau, daughter of FRIEDRICH Graf von Formbach & his wife Gertrud von Haldensleben (-[1090/93]).  According to Poull, Duke Thierry unsuccessfully petitioned the Pope in early 1079 to marry Agnès d'Aquitaine, widow of Pierre Comte de Savoie, which if correct means that his first marriage inevitably took place after this[20]m secondly (Han-sur-Lesse 15 Aug 1095) as her second husband, GERTRUDE de Flandre, widow of HENRI III Comte de Louvain, daughter of ROBERT I "Friso" Count of Flanders & his wife Gertrud of Saxony [Billung] (-[1115/26]).  Her parentage and both her marriages are deduced from the Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin in which is named "Gertrude filia Roberti Frisonis, vidua Henrici Bruselensis" mother of "Theodericum" who is in turn named "filium Theoderici ducis de Helsath"[21].  The Genealogica Comitum Flandriæ Bertiniana specifies that "Robertus comes cognomento Frisio" had three daughters "tercia Theoderico comiti Alsatie [nupsit]"[22].  Duke Thierry II & his first wife had [four] children:

a)         SIMON de Lorraine (-13/14 Jan 1139, bur Stulzbron).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Symonem ducem" as son of "Theodericum ducem"[23].  Pibo Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis" by charter dated 10 Oct 1091[24].  He succeeded his father in 1115 as SIMON I Duke of Lorraine

-        see below.  

b)         GERTRUDE [Petronilla] de Lorraine (-23 May 1144, bur Rijnsburg).  The Annales Egmundani name "Petronilla" as widow of "Florentius crassus comes filius Theoderici" but do not give her origin[25].  The Chronologia Johannes de Beke records the marriage of Count Floris and "Petronillam Lotharii cesaris sororem"[26].  The Annales Magdeburgenses name "Gertrudeis comitissa de…Holland…soror Lotherii Saxonis ducis" when recording her rebellion in 1123[27].  Regent of Holland for her son Count Dirk VI during his minority.  She founded the Abbey of Rijnsburg in 1133.  The Annales Egmundani record the death in 1144 of "Petronilla comitissa uxor Florentii crassi comitis" and her burial at "Rinsburch"[28].  The Chronologia Johannes de Beke record that "Petronilla…comitissa" became a nun at Rijnsburg after her husband died, and died and was buried there "X Kal Iun"[29].  Beke's Egmondsch Necrologium records the death "1144 X Kal Iun" of "Petronilla comitissa"[30]m (1113) FLORIS II Count of Holland, son of DIRK V Count [of Holland] & his wife Othelindis --- (-2 Mar 1121). 

c)         [FROUNICA .  Nun at Remiremont.  “Theodericus...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio”, after “filiæ meæ Frounica...et Hara” became nuns “Frounica in Romarico-monte et Hara in Buxeriis”, donated property to Bouxières by charter dated 5 Aug 1120 [misdated][31].] 

d)         [HARA (-after 21 Mar 1156).  “Theodericus...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio”, after “filiæ meæ Frounica...et Hara” became nuns “Frounica in Romarico-monte et Hara in Buxeriis”, donated property to Bouxières by charter dated 5 Aug 1120 [misdated][32].  "Simon...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio" donated “ecclesiam...de Pixerecourt...partem decimarum villæ...de Margeville et Augecourt” to the abbey of Bouxières-aux-Dames, in the presence of “soror mea domina Hara abbatissæ”, by charter dated 30 Mar 1130[33].  Abbess of Bouxières-aux-Dames.  Matthæus...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio” confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Bouxières-aux-Dames donated by “pater meus Simon et avus meus Theodericus”, at the request of “patruæ meæ dominæ Haræ abbatissæ sanctæ Mariæ de Monte”, by charter dated 21 Mar 1156, in the presence of “uxore mea Bertha[34].

Duke Thierry II & his second wife had [six] children:

e)         THIERRY de Lorraine ([1099/1101]-17 Jan 1168).  He is named in the Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin, which also specifies his parentage[35].  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[36].  He succeeded in 1128 as THIERRY I Count of Flanders.

f)          GERARD de Lorraine (-after 1117).  The Passio Karoli Comitis names "Simonis et Gerardi" as sons of "Theodericus dux" & his wife Gertrude[37].  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[38]

g)         HENRI de Lorraine (-6 Jun 1165, bur Toul Cathedral).  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[39].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the appointment of "Henricus…frater ducis Simonis de Nanceio et illius qui postea fuit comes Flandrensis" as Bishop of Toul in 1126[40].  William of Tyre names him as brother of Thierry I Count of Flanders when recording his presence with Konrad II King of Germany in Palestine in 1148[41].  He was elected Bishop of Toul in Mar 1126, installed at Metz in Jul 1126. 

h)         BAUDOUIN .  The Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin records "Balduinum fratrem Theoderici comitis Flandrie"[42]

i)          ERMENGARDE de Lorraine .  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1193 refers to "soror…comitis Theoderici et ducis Symonis" as wife of "cuidem forti castellano de Burgundia Bernardo", by whom she had "Iosceranum et sorores eius, qui de sorore comitis Cabilonensis genuit Henricum patrem Iosceranni Grossi"[43]m BERNARD Grossus Seigneur de Brancion, son of LANDRY Grossus Seigneur de Brancion et d'Uxelles & his wife --- (-before [1147]).

j)          [GISELA de Lorraine .  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[44], the wife of Graf Friedrich may have been the daughter of Thierry II Duke of Lorraine, but the basis for this speculation is not know.  The primary source which confirms her two marriages has not yet been identified.  m firstly --- [von Tecklenburg], son of ---.  m secondly FRIEDRICH [I] Graf im Saargau, son of SIGEBERT [I] Graf im Saargau & his wife --- (-before 1135).]

2.         GERARD de Lorraine (-1108, bur Belval).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Theodericum ducem et Gerardum comitem fratres" sons of "Hadewidem [filiam Ermengardis]"[45].  He opposed his brother's sole succession in 1071, waged war for two years, the dispute being settled when his brother ceded him the Saintois and other territories, which became the County of Vaudémont, 14 Apr 1073[46]

-        COMTES de VAUDEMONT

3.         GISELE de Lorraine (-after [1114]).  Poull refers to charters of Remiremont Saint-Pierre which name Gisèle[47].  Abbess of Remiremont Saint-Pierre and Saint-Pierre de Metz [1070/1114].

4.         BEATRIX de Lorraine (-[1116/17]).  "Stephanus comes Burgundie et dominus de Treva" donated property to Cluny by charter dated [1100] in which he refers to his wife as "filia ducis Lotharingie" but does not name her[48].  The primary source which names her has not yet been identified.  m ([1085/90]) ETIENNE [I] Comte de Mâcon, son of GUILLAUME [I] "le Grand" Comte Palatin de Bourgogne & his wife Etiennette --- (-murdered Ascalon 27 May 1102). 

 

 

SIMON de Lorraine, son of THIERRY II Duke of Lorraine & his first wife Hedwig von Formbach (-[13/15] Jan 1139, bur Stulzbron).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Symonem ducem" as son of "Theodericum ducem"[49].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[50], Duke Simon was the son of his father's first marriage.  This appears to be confirmed by the charter dated 10 Oct 1091 under which Pibon Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis"[51].  Poull[52] refers to several sources which apparently indicate that he was the son of Duke Thierry II's second marriage, including Duke Simon's own act dated 11 Apr 1126 which refers to his deceased "mother Gertrude".  However, Duke Simon married "his stepmother's daughter whom she had by her first husband Graf Heinrich"[53], which is best interpreted as meaning that he married the daughter of Gertrude de Flandre, second wife of Duke Thierry II, by her first husband.  The alternative interpretation, that Duke Simon (assumed for the purposes of this argument to be the son of Gertrude de Flandre) married the daughter of Hedwig von Formbach by an otherwise unknown first husband "Graf Heinrich" presents major chronological difficulties.  Such a daughter could not have been born later than 1072 at the latest.  Considering that Hedwig gave birth to two children by her husband Gerhard von Süpplingenburg who died in 1075, such a birth date appears incompatible with Duke Simon's wife having given birth to at least seven children, even if their marriage took place as early as [1112/13] as suggested by Poull.  Two further sources confirm that Duke Simon was born from his father's first marriage.  Firstly, the Gesta Alberonis Archiepiscopi names "Lotharingiæ ducem Symonem, fratrem regis [=Lothar von Süpplingenburg]" when recording his excommunication 10 Apr 1132[54], Emperor Lothar being Simon's uterine half-brother assuming that Hedwig von Formbach was his mother.  Secondly, "Teodericus dux Lotharingie" donated the church at Nancy to the abbey of Molesme with the consent of "filio suo Simone" by charter dated to [1080/90][55] which, assuming this dating is correct, was before the date of Duke Thierry's second marriage.  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[56].  He succeeded his father in 1115 as SIMON I Duke of Lorraine.  “Duci Simoni, comiti Odvino, Alberto de Darney et Simoni advocato” granted rights to Saint-Dié by charter dated to [1123/25][57].  "Simon...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio" donated “ecclesiam...de Pixerecourt...partem decimarum villæ...de Margeville et Augecourt” to the abbey of Bouxières-aux-Dames, in the presence of “soror mea domina Hara abbatissæ”, by charter dated 30 Mar 1130[58].  “Simon...Lotharingorum dux” renounced claims over property of “ecclesia de Sancti-Remigii-Monte”, brought by “patris mei beatæ memoriæ ducis Theodorici”, with the support of “uxore mea...ducissa Adelide...cum Matthæo...unico  nostro filio”, by undated charter[59].  He founded the Cistercian monastery of Sainte-Marue-au-Bois at Stulzbron.  The necrology of Notre-Dame aux Nonnains records the death "15 Jan" of "Symon dux Lotaringeris"[60].  The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XIX Kal Feb" of "Simon Lotaringorum dux"[61].  The necrology of Gorze records the death "XIX Kal Feb" of "Simon dux Lotharingiæ"[62].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy-lès-Toul records the death "14 Jan" of "Sigismundus dux"[63]

m ([1112/13]) ADELAIDE de Louvain, daughter of HENRI III Comte de Louvain & his wife Gertrude de Flandre (before 1095-4 Nov after 1158).  Simon Duke of Lorraine married "his stepmother's daughter whom she had by her first husband Graf Heinrich"[64].  In light of the chronological difficulties of this having been a daughter of Duke Thierry II's first wife, it is likely that Duke Simon's wife was the daughter of the comte de Louvain, whose wife married Duke Thierry as his second wife.  “Simon...Lotharingorum dux” renounced claims over property of “ecclesia de Sancti-Remigii-Monte”, brought by “patris mei beatæ memoriæ ducis Theodorici”, with the support of “uxore mea...ducissa Adelide...cum Matthæo...unico  nostro filio”, by undated charter[65].  Her name is confirmed by the charter dated 1155, after 1 Sep, under which "Judit Romaricensis ecclesie abbatissa" donated property at the request of "Aledis mater ducis Mathei"[66].  After the death of her husband, Adelaide retired to the Cistercian abbey of Notre-Dame du Tart, near Dijon[67]

Duke Simon I & his wife had [seven] children: 

1.         [MATHIEU de Lorraine (-4 Nov [before 1119]).  “Simon...Lotharingorum dux” renounced claims over property of “ecclesia de Sancti-Remigii-Monte”, brought by “patris mei beatæ memoriæ ducis Theodorici”, with the support of “uxore mea...ducissa Adelide...cum Matthæo...unico  nostro filio”, by undated charter[68].  This charter is dated to before the birth of the dukes younger sons.  It is unclear whether Duke Simon’s son Mathieu, named in the document, was an older son who died young or the future Duke Mathieu I.] 

2.         AGATHE de Lorraine .  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records the wife of Comte Renaud as "Simonis Lotharingiorum ducis filiam"[69]Raynaldus Burgundiæ comes” donated property to Besançon cathedral, with the consent of “fratris nostri Guillermi comitis et...collateralis nostræ Agathæ Lotharingiæ ducis filiæ”, by charter dated 1148[70]She was first cousin once removed of her husband but no mention of a Papal dispensation for the marriage has so far been identified.  “Matheus...Lotharingorum Dux et marchio” donated property to Tart abbey, with the consent of “uxoris mee Berthe...fratris mei Balduini et Agathe sororis mee”, by charter dated 1142[71]m ([1130]) RENAUD [III] Comte [Palatin] de Bourgogne, son of ETIENNE [I] Comte de Mâcon & his wife Beatrix de Lorraine (-22 Jan 1148 or 20 Jan 1149).

3.         HADWIDE de Lorraine (-[27 Jan, 29 Jan or 23 Feb] after 1142).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  “Fridericus...Tullensium comes...et uxor mea Hawuidis” confirmed a donation to Tart abbey made by Mathieu Duc de Lorraine by charter dated 1142, witnessed by “...Rainaldus comes Barrensis, Henricus frater comitis Friderici...[72].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "27 Jan" of "Helvydis comitissa", "29 Jan" of "Helvydis comitissa", and "23 Feb" of "Havidis comitissa"[73]m (before mid-1128) FREDERIC [II] Comte de Toul, son of RAINARD [III] Comte de Toul & his wife Gisele de Vaudémont (-[1138/42]). 

4.         MATHIEU de Lorraine ([1119]-13 May 1176, bur Abbaye de Clairlieu).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1193 names "dux Matheus et Robertus" as sons of "ducis Symonis"[74].  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Matheum ducem" as son of "Symonem ducem"[75].  “Symon dux et marchio, Aleidis ducissa, Mathœus puer...” subscribed the charter dated 1122 under which “Symon...Lotharingorum dux et marchio et Aleidis conjux eius et ducissa” confirmed the possessions of Chaumousey abbey[76].  He succeeded his father in 1138 as MATHIEU I Duke of Lorraine.

et marchio” confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Bouxières-aux-Dames donated by “pater meus Simon et avus meus Theodericus”, at the request of “patruæ meæ dominæ Haræ abbatissæ sanctæ Mariæ de Monte”, by charter dated 21 Mar 1156, in the presence of “uxore mea Bertha[79]He founded the abbey of Clairlieu in 1159.  “Matthæus Lotharingiæ dux et marchio” granted toll exemptions at Neuf-château

imperatorem nostrum et uxorem Mathei ducis Lotharingiæ" as the children of "Friderico Suevorum duci" & his wife Judith[85].  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising names "Fridericum…et Iuditham" as

6.         THIERRY de Lorraine "d'Enfer/du Diable" (-[Joinville] before Jun 1244).  Seigneur d'Autigny, under the division of territories agreed on the death of his father[177].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records in 1208 that "dux de Nanceio Fredericus" attacked "terram monachorum Gorziensium" and "contra comitem Barrie eiusdem terre defensorem" but that "cui comes...III Non Feb" captured “ipsum ducem cum duobus fratribus suis, quotum unus Theodericus de Inferno dictus est” and held them captive for seven months until peace was restored[178].  “Math. dux et march.” confirmed that “Dns Tirric. de Atygneio patr. nr.” donated the mill at Autigny to Etanche abbey by charter dated 1220[179].  A decree issued by Empress Maria Theresia, dated 28 Mar 1769, granting a ducal crown to his supposed descendant François Gabriel Joseph Marquis du Chasteler et de Courcelles, recites the latter’s descent from the ducal family of Lorraine, and names “Gertrude de Montmorenci” as wife of “Thieri surnommé d’Enfer Sr. du Chastler” and mother of his son Ferry[180].  La Belgique Héraldique states that “ce mariage est mentionné dans les titres de l’abbaye de Relanges” but that it was not proved “aux yeux du marquis du Chasteler, qui n’avait pu vérifier les titres”, and suggests that it is based on a genealogical fragment from the house of Saint-Elophe which records that “Thierry de Saint-Elophe, vivant en 1211, épousa Gertrude” while noting that Ferry, son of Thierry de Lorraine, possessed “alors Saint-Elophe ou des droits étendus sur Saint-Elophe[181].  No record has been found of Gertrude in the sources relating to the Montmorency family (see the document PARIS REGION NOBILITY-BEAUMONT & BEAUVAISIS).  Mistress (1): ALIX de Nogent, daughter of ANDRE Seigneur de Nogent-en-Bassigny & his wife --- (-before 1256).  Her relationship with Thierry de Lorraine is shown in Europaische Stammtafeln[182].  The primary source which confirms that this information is correct has not been identified.  She married (before 1234) Simon [III] de Parroye.  Thierry had two possible illegitimate children by Mistress (1): 

a)         [SIMON “le Diable” (-13 Oct [1245]).  Canon at Saint-Dié.  Richer names "Simon canonicus Sancti Deodati cognomento Diabolus...filius esse dicebatur...Terricus Diabolus" when recording his help in reconstructing a mill at Reclonville which was incomplete because he died[183].  This text introduces enough doubt (“esse dicebatur”) to consider this affiliation unconfirmed.  The necrology of Senones records the death “III Id Oct” of “Simon canonicus” and his donation of money towards building the mill[184].  Calmet suggests that “on peut fixer le decés de Simon vers l’an 1245[185].] 

b)         [FERRY (-[Nov 1292/30 Jun 1296], bur [Neufchâteau Cordeliers]).  No documentary proof has been found that Ferry was the son of Thierry Seigneur d'Autigny.  However, his supposed father's seigneurie was in his possession in 1244 and his arms were similar to those of the dukes of Lorraine[186].  The Papal dispensation for the marriage of his son Jean indicates consanguinity with Eudes Comte de Toul, descended from Mathieu de Lorraine Comte de Toul, which appears consistent with this supposed parentage.  Seigneur de Chastelet.  Seigneur d'Autigny Jun 1244.  Ferris sires dou Chateler” exchanged property with the abbess of Létanche, with the consent of “Isabel ma fame et de Harart mon fil” by charter dated Dec 1264[187].]

B.      COMTES de VAUDEMONT (1)

 

 

GERARD de Lorraine, son of GERARD Duke of Upper Lorraine & his wife Hadwide de Namur (-1108, bur Belval).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" as son of "Gerardus de Alsatia dux Mosellanorum"[352].  He opposed his brother's sole succession in 1071, waged war for two years, the dispute being settled when his brother ceded him the Saintois and other territories, which became the county of Vaudémont, 14 Apr 1073.  Comte de Vaudémont.  He constructed the fortresses of Deuilly and Châtel-sur-Moselle[353].  The Codex de l’Angelica records “Haduydis ducissa” donating a serf to Remiremont, with the consent of “filiis suis duce Theoderico atque comite Girardo”, undated[354].  [The Codex de l’Angelica records that “Gerardus comes et Alberada comitissa” donated a serf to Remiremont, undated[355].]  Pibo Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis" by charter dated 10 Oct 1091[356].  He founded the Priory of Belval 1097.  Vogt of Lure. 

[m firstly ALBERADE, daughter of --- (-12 Aug ----).  The Codex de l’Angelica records that “Gerardus comes et Alberada comitissa” donated a serf to Remiremont, undated[357].  One possibility is that the donor was Gérard Comte de Vaudémont (whose mother donated property to Remiremont), with an earlier otherwise unrecorded first wife.  Another possibility is that the donor was Gerhard [I] Graf von Egisheim (the great-great uncle of the known wife of Gérard Comte de Vaudémont, see the document ALSACE), who is not otherwise recorded as having married, assuming that the donation was dated to the 1030s.  An indication of her origin is provided by the same source which records that “Alberada comitissa” donated serfs to Remiremont, for the souls of “suorum antecessorum que venerunt de Castencium [Chatenois] et manserunt in potestate que dicitur Ulmis [Ormes]”, undated[358].] 

m [secondly] ([1080]) HEILWIG von Egisheim, daughter of GERHARD [II] Graf von Egisheim & his wife Richarda --- (-29 Jan before 1126, bur Belval).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the wife of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" as "filiam comitis de Daburc, neptem sancti Leonis papa" but does not name her or her father[359].  “Helwigis comitissa filia comitis Gerhardi de castro Egensheim...et Hugone filio suo majore eius advocato ceterisque filiis ipsius” donated “Berhtam” to Strasbourg by charter dated 1118, witnessed by “filiis ambobus laycis Hugone maiore et minore Udalrico...Sigefridus advocatus et Heinrich et Diebolth vicedominus[360]

Gérard & his [second] wife had five children:

1.         HUGUES de Vaudémont (-4 Feb 1155, bur Priory of Belval, near Portieux, Vosges).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Wanderii Montis Hugonem et sororem eius Gislam" as children of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" & his [second] wife[361].  He succeeded his father in 1108 as Comte de Vaudémont

-        see below.

2.         ULRIC de Vaudémont (-1143, bur Belval).  “Helwigis comitissa filia comitis Gerhardi de castro Egensheim...et Hugone filio suo majore eius advocato ceterisque filiis ipsius” donated “Berhtam” to Strasbourg by charter dated 1118, witnessed by “filiis ambobus laycis Hugone maiore et minore Udalrico...Sigefridus advocatus et Heinrich et Diebolth vicedominus[362].  “Comes Hugo de Wadanomonte” donated a serf to Remiremont, with the consent of “fratre suo Olrico”, undated “tempore Judith sororis sue abbatisse[363].  Graf von Egisheim 1125.

3.         JUDITH de Vaudémont (-[23 Mar 1161/64]).  Abbess of Remiremont 1114.  “Comes Hugo de Wadanomonte” donated a serf to Remiremont, with the consent of “fratre suo Olrico”, undated “tempore Judith sororis sue abbatisse[364].  Abbess of Saint Pierre in Metz 1139.

4.         ETIENNETTE de Vaudémont (-[4 Dec 1160/1188], bur Oelenberg).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  The Necrology of Basel records the death "II Non Dec" of "Stehania comitissa" and her burial "in Oelenberg"[365]m as his second wife, FREDERIC I Comte de Ferrette, son of THIERRY de Mousson & his wife Ermentrude de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1174/78]-19 Jul [1160], bur Oelenberg).

5.         GISELE de Vaudémont ([before 1095?]-26 Dec after 1141, bur Saint-Mihiel).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Wanderii Montis Hugonem et sororem eius Gislam" as children of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" & his [second] wife, specifying that Gisela was "comitissa Barri"[366].  The chronology of the lives of her children by her first marriage suggests that Gisèle was probably born before [1095].  Her first marriage is deduced from the same source which records that "comes Raynaldus Barri" became the stepfather of "comitis Frederici Tullensis et fratrum suorum Theoderici et Wedrici" although without naming his wife[367].  It should be noted that these two texts do not establish beyond doubt that the widow of Renier Comte de Toul was also the daughter of Gérard Comte de Vaudémont.  It is therefore not impossible that Comte Renaud married twice, firstly to Gisèle daughter of Comte Gérard, and secondly to the unnamed widow of Comte Renier.  However, no indication has yet been found in the primary sources to indicate that this is correct.  m firstly RAINARD [III] Comte de Toul, son of FREDERIC [I] Comte d'Astenois et de Toul & his wife Gertrude de Toul (-17 or 18 Feb [1116/20]).  m secondly ([1120]) as his second wife, RENAUD I Comte de Bar et de Mousson, son of THIERRY de Mousson & his wife Ermentrude de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1175/77]-on ship in the Mediterranean 10 Mar 1149).

Comte Hugues [I] & his wife had five children: 

1.         GERARD [II] de Vaudémont (-1188, bur Morimond).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to, but does not name, one of the sisters (named second in the list of sisters) of "Lingones…episcopus Galterus [et] episcopum Eduensem Henricum" as "mater comitis Gerardi, filii Hugonis de Wandanimonte"[377].  “Hugonis comitis Vaudemontani” donated “piscationem ad Saxeium” to Toul, with the consent of “Aigelinæ coniugis suæ et Gerardi filii”, by undated charter[378].  “Hugonis comitis Wadonis-montis” donated land “Hundeseise” to the church of Beaupré, with the consent of “uxoris suæ ac filiorum Gerardi et Ulrici”, by undated charter[379].  He succeeded his father in 1155 as Comte de Vaudémont.  Pierre Bishop of Toul confirmed the donation of “le lieu de Tontigny auparavant appartenant à l’héritage de Morivlle...” made to Flabémont by “conte Gerard de Vauldemont”, with the consent of “Gertrude sa femme et de Hugues son filz et autres leurs héritiers...et de Odon son frère archidiacre” by charter dated 1172[380].  Pope Alexander III confirmed donations to Mireval, including the donation of “domum deportandi in banno de Cassine” made by “Girardi comitis Wadoni-montis et uxoris eius Gertrudis et fratrum eius Olrici, Rainaldi”, by charter dated 1180[381].  “Gerardi comitis Wadanimontis” donated property to the church of Beaupré, with the consent of “fratris sui Odonis Tullensis archidiaconi”, by charter dated 1186[382]m firstly ([1157/61]) GERTRUDE de Joinville, daughter of GEOFFROI [III] Seigneur de Joinville & his wife Félicité de Brienne (-1181 or after).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Gaufridum, Vaslerum et Gertrudem" as children of "Gaufridum Grossum" & his wife, specifying that Gertrude was mother of "comitis Hugonis Wandanimontis"[383].  "Gaufridus Jovisville dominus, comitis Henrici senescaldus" donated property to Chapelle-aux-Planches by charter dated 1157 in which he names "pater meus Rogerus…Felicitate uxore mea et filio meo Gaufrido, filia quoque Gertrude"[384].  The bishop of Toul confirmed the act by which "Geoffroy seigneur de Joinville", with the agreement of "Geoffroy son fils et de la comtesse de Vaudémont sa fille", founded the abbey of Ecurey, by charter dated 1168[385].  Pierre Bishop of Toul confirmed the donation of “le lieu de Tontigny auparavant appartenant à l’héritage de Morivlle...” made to Flabémont by “conte Gerard de Vauldemont”, with the consent of “Gertrude sa femme et de Hugues son filz et autres leurs héritiers...et de Odon son frère archidiacre” by charter dated 1172[386].  Pope Alexander III confirmed donations to Mireval, including the donation of “domum deportandi in banno de Cassine” made by “Girardi comitis Wadoni-montis et uxoris eius Gertrudis et fratrum eius Olrici, Rainaldi”, by charter dated 1180[387]m secondly (before 1187) HUMBELINE de Vandeuvre, widow of BARTHELEMY [II] Seigneur de Nogent-en-Bassigny, daughter of HILDUIN de Vandeuvre & his wife [Oda ---] (-19 Jun after 1205).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and two marriages has not been identified.  The Feoda Campanie dated [1204/10] includes “…comitissa Wadimontis...” in De Barri super Albam[388].  Gérard [II] & his first wife had [five] children: 

a)         [HEDWIDE [de Vaudémont?] )Europäische Stammtafeln names “Hadvide v Vaudémont, T v Graf Gerhard II” as the first wife of Liébaud [III] Seigneur de Vaudémont[389].  The primary source which confirms her name and marriage has not been identified.  Her suggested family origin is presumably based on Poull who suggests that she was Gérard [II]’s daughter by his first wife, noting the couple’s marriage “avant 1190[390].  If it is correct, as also indicated by Europäische Stammtafeln, that the couple’s four children were named in 1181, the marriage must have taken place many years before 1190.  In support of his suggestion about her parentage, Poull cites two documents.  Firstly, “Huardus domicellus de Beffroymont et dominus de la Rolleye” [La Rouillie] confirmed donations to Flabémont abbey made by “patre meo Leobaudo” by charter dated Jul 1238, witnessed by “domini de Savilley avunculi mei et domini de Beffroymont fratris mei[391], indicating in a later passage that “domini de Savilley” was Geoffroy Seigneur de Deuilly[392].  Poull says that Huard was this couple’s second son but, as noted below, other sources suggest that he was the son of Liébaud [III] by his second wife.  Secondly, Liébaud [IV] Seigneur de Bauffremont asked “son cousin Henri comte de Vaudémont” to seal a charter dated Mar 1262[393].  Poull names Liébaud [IV] as this couple’s grandson, although other indications suggest that Liébaud [IV]’s father (Pierre [I] Seigneur de Bauffremont) was also Liébaud [III]’s son by his second marriage.  Considering these factors, it is suggested that Poull’s indication of the possible family origin of Liébaud [III]’s first wife should be treated with caution until further source material emerges.  m ([1175 or before?]) as his first wife, LIEBAUD [III] Seigneur de Bauffremont, son of HUGUES [II] Seigneur de Bauffremont & his wife Hawide de Bourlémont (-after 1226).]   

b)         HUGUES [II] de Vaudémont (-20 Apr or 4 May [1241/42], bur Belval).  Pierre Bishop of Toul confirmed the donation of “le lieu de Tontigny auparavant appartenant à l’héritage de Morivlle...” made to Flabémont by “conte Gerard de Vauldemont”, with the consent of “Gertrude sa femme et de Hugues son filz et autres leurs héritiers...et de Odon son frère archidiacre” by charter dated 1172[394]Comte de Vaudémont.  "Hugo comes Waudimontis" recorded a dispute between Montiéramey and "Urricum fratrem emum, de Mainillo Fulchardi" concerning property “in villa de Sephons”, and the settlement in his presence and that of “Gaufridus de Daulli frater meus”, by charter dated May 1215[395].  The county of Bar acquired suzerainty over the county of Vaudémont in the early 13th century, precise date uncertain: Hugues [II] Comte de Vaudémont swore allegiance to Thibaut [I] Comte de Bar by charter dated Apr 1216[396].  “Hugo comes Vademontis” noted that “Jofridus filius meus Gondricuriæ dominus” had received “allodium de Monfort et Domanges” from Henri II Comte de Bar, with the consent of “Hugonis primogeniti mei”, by charter dated Oct 1229[397].  The testament of “Hugo comes Wademontis”, dated May 1235, divided his territories between “Hugoni filio meo primogenito...Joffrido secundo-genito meo...Gerardo tertio-genito meo[398]m ([1188/90]) HADWIDE de Reynel Dame de Gondrecourt, daughter of GUYARD Seigneur de Reynel & his wife Emmeline Dame de Gondrecourt (-before Jul 1238).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  Hugues [II] & his wife had three children: 

i)          HUGUES [III] de Vaudémont (-20 Apr or 4 May 1243).  “Hugo comes Vademontis” noted that “Jofridus filius meus Gondricuriæ dominus” had received “allodium de Monfort et Domanges” from Henri II Comte de Bar, with the consent of “Hugonis primogeniti mei”, by charter dated Oct 1229[399]Comte de Vaudémont

iii)        GERARD de Vaudémont (-after May 1235).  The testament of “Hugo comes Wademontis”, dated May 1235, divided his territories between “Hugoni filio meo primogenito...Joffrido secundo-genito meo...Gerardo tertio-genito meo[402]

c)         GEOFFROY de Vaudémont (-[Mar [1239/40]/May 1240])Poull records charters dated 1181, 1183, [1190], and 1194 in which Geoffroy was named with his parents, and dated 1195 in which his name was first linked to Deuilly (full citation references)[403].  Seigneur de Deuilly.  "Hugo comes Waudimontis" recorded a dispute between Montiéramey and "Urricum fratrem emum, de Mainillo Fulchardi" concerning property “in villa de Sephons”, and the settlement in his presence and that of “Gaufridus de Daulli frater meus”, by charter dated May 1215[404]

d)         GERARD de Vaudémont (-1219).  Canon at Toul.  Archdeacon and thesaurarius of Toul.  Primicerius of Metz.  Bishop of Toul 1218.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death in 1219 of “Gerardus Metensis primicerius frater comitis Hugonis de Waudani Monte, in episcopum Tullensem electus” and the succession of “cantor Odo” as bishop[405]

e)         OLRY de Vaudémont (-after May 1215).  "Hugo comes Waudimontis" recorded a dispute between Montiéramey and "Urricum fratrem emum, de Mainillo Fulchardi" concerning property “in villa de Sephons”, and the settlement in his presence and that of “Gaufridus de Daulli frater meus”, by charter dated May 1215[406]

2.         OLRY de Vaudémont ([1135/40]-[before 1164]).  “Hugonis comitis Wadonis-montis” donated land “Hundeseise” to the church of Beaupré, with the consent of “uxoris suæ ac filiorum Gerardi et Ulrici”, by undated charter[407].  Seigneur de Deuilly.  Vignier records having seen the copy of a charter dated to [1170] under which “Ulric Sgr de Deüilly” confirmed the donation of land at Fresnoy to Morimond, with the consent of his wife “la fille de Regnier...Agnes” and of “les deux sœurs d’Agnes, Berthe et Adeline...[religieuses à] Remiremont”, subscribed by “leurs tantes Gertrude et Reine...Renier d’Aigremont...Roland miles Acrimontis[408].  Faget de Casteljau provides the citation reference for this document[409].  Pope Alexander III confirmed donations to Mireval, including the donation of “domum deportandi in banno de Cassine” made by “Girardi comitis Wadoni-montis et uxoris eius Gertrudis et fratrum eius Olrici, Rainaldi”, by charter dated 1180[410]m ([1160/62?]) [as her first husband,] AGNES d'Aigremont, daughter of RENIER [I] Seigneur d'Aigremont & his wife --- (-after [1170]).  Faget de Casteljau records that Renier d’Aigremont “et sa fille Agnes” confirmed donations to the monks of Serqueux made by “Olry prévôt de Saints-Geosmes, frère de Renier”, by charter dated 1164[411].  The absence of Agnes’s husband suggests that she was unmarried at the time, or that her husband was deceased.  Vignier records having seen the copy of a charter dated to [1170] under which “Ulric Sgr de Deüilly” confirmed the donation of land at Fresnoy to Morimond, with the consent of his wife “la fille de Regnier...Agnes” and of “les deux sœurs d’Agnes, Berthe et Adeline...[religieuses à] Remiremont”, subscribed by “leurs tantes Gertrude et Reine...Renier d’Aigremont...Roland miles Acrimontis[412].  [She married secondly ([1164]) Olry [I] de Neuviller, who succeeded his supposed father-in-law as Seigneur d’Aigremont.  The likelihood of this second marriage is discussed in CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY.]  Olry & his wife had [one possible child]: 

a)         [HELVIS DAMIETTE [de Deuilly] ([1162/64]-after [1203/05]).  Faget de Casteljau highlights charters confirming that “Thierry le jeune de Neuviller, neveu d’Olry” possessed his share of Aigremont “du chef de son épouse Helvis Damette...sœur de Renier seigneur d’Aigremont” (indicating Renier [II] de Neuviller), dated 1192, 1198 and 1199[413].  Her birth date [1162/64] is consistent with her daughter’s marriage in 1198.  This suggests that Renier [II]’s mother was heiress of Aigremont and that “Helvis Damiette” was her daughter by an earlier marriage, which is consistent with the theory that Agnes d’Aigremont married Olry [I] de Neuviller as her second husband.  She is referred to, but not named, in her husband’s charter dated [1203/05].  m THIERRY [II] de Neuviller, son of THIERRY [II] de Neuviller & his wife --- (-after [1203/05]).  He succeeded as Seigneur d’Aigremont, de iure uxoris.]

2.         AGNES de Vaudémont (-1282, bur Werschweiler).  Poull records her parentage and marriage, noting her epitaph at Werschweiler recording the burial of “Agnes comitissa Gemnipontis nata de Widamunt et Henricus prepositus filius eius[466]m WALRAM [I] Graf von Zweibrücken, son of HEINRICH [II] Graf von Zweibrücken & his wife Agnes von Eberstein (-[18/22] Jan 1309). 

3.         MARIE de Vaudémont (-after Feb 1291).  Poull records her parentage and marriage[467].  “Marie Frau v. Schoenberg (de Baumont) Wittwe des Ritters Theoderich (Thierri) v. Schoenberg” granted her rights “in den Dörfern Bettendorf, Grueyestorf, Weyergel, Helenboue, Lyxen...” to “ihrem Neffen Jacquet de Waydemont Herrn v.

4.         [MARGUERITE de Vaudémont (-before Sep 1293).  Poull records Marguerite as the youngest daughter of Hugues [III] Comte de Vaudémont and her marriage with Henri [I] Seigneur de Hans[469].  No primary source has been found which corroborates this information.  Poull cites Lesort, who names “Henri II seigneur de Hans...fils de Henri I de Hans et de Marguerite de Vaudémont, dame de Tantonville”, citing a work by Anatole de Barthélemy which has not been found[470].  Lesort’s suggestion seems based on La Chesnaye-Desbois[471], the accuracy of whose work cannot be guaranteed.  In another study, Barthélemy named “Ermine, fille de Hugues III, vidame de Châlons et de Marguerite de Milly” as wife of Henri [I] de Grandpré Seigneur de Hans (no source cited), Ermine being named as his wife in sources dated between Sep 1293 and Jun 1311[472].  If Poull is correct, Marguerite would have been Henri’s first wife, which is consistent with his parents’ marriage dated to [1236/Jun 1238] and the death of Comte Hugues [III] in 1243 (see above).  m [as his first wife,] HENRI [I] Seigneur de Hans, son of JACQUES de Grandpré Seigneur de Hans & his wife Helvide de Barbançon (-after early Dec 1315).] 

 

 

 

C.      SEIGNEURS du CHASTELET

 

 

The castle of le Chastelet/le Châtelet was situated adjacent to Barville and Harchéchamp, in the present-day French départment of Vosges, arrondissement and canton Neufchàteau, about 40 kilometres south-west of Nancy.  The seigneurs du Chastelet also held the nearby seigneurie d’Autigny, now Autigny-la-Tour.  The fortress was built by Thierry de Lorraine “d’Enfer/du Diable” Seigneur d’Autigny, son of Ferry I Duke of Lorraine. 

 

 

FERRY d’Autigny, illegitimate son of [THIERRY de Lorraine "d'Enfer/du Diable" Seigneur d’Autigny & his mistress Alix de Nogent] (-[Nov 1292/30 Jun 1296], bur [Neufchâteau Cordeliers]).  No documentary proof has been found that Ferry was the son of Thierry Seigneur d'Autigny.  However, his supposed father's seigneurie was in his possession in 1244 and his arms were similar to those of the dukes of Lorraine[473].  The Papal dispensation for the marriage of his son Jean indicates consanguinity with Eudes Comte de Toul, descended from Mathieu de Lorraine Comte de Toul, which appears consistent with this supposed parentage.  Goethals states that Ferry “figure dans plusieurs titre comme fils de Thierry seigneur du Chastelet dit d’Enfer et frère de Simon le Diable [chanoine de Saint-Diey]” but provides no details[474].  Seigneur d'Autigny: “Ferrion seigneur d’Autignei” was named with his wife Isabelle in a charter dated 1243[475].  Seigneur du Chastelet: “Fredico dou Chasteler et de Autigneio Dno. et Elisabbet uxori sue” donated a mill to Etanche abbey charter dated 15 Jun 1244, which also states that “pdta. uxor pnoiato F, defucto [predicta uxor prenominato F. defuncto]” her husband confirmed the donation[476].  “Ferris sires dou Chateler” exchanged property with the abbess of Létanche, with the consent of “Isabel ma fame et de Harart mon fil” by charter dated Dec 1264[477].  “Ferris dou Chastelei chevalier et...Ysabelle sa femme et...Erars lour fils” sold “partie...ou bois...Frival” to the bishop of Verdun by charter dated Mar 1270[478].  “Fridericus miles dominus de Castelleto” donated rights “in nemoribus...de Rouvre” to Neufchâteau by charter dated Nov 1292[479]La Belgique héraldique says that Ferry died “avant 1296” and was buried “dans l’église des Cordeliers à Neufchâteau”, without citing the source which confirms his place of burial[480], the date being confirmed by the 30 Jun 1296 charter quoted below. 

m (before 25 Aug 1242) ISABELLE de Marsey, daughter of ERARD de Marsey [Maizey?] & his wife Renarde --- (-after Mar 1270).  “Erars sires de Marzei” sold property at “Bennoucourt et a Wimbeie...Rovroy de Hoommes et de Masnies, et Lomaige de la Deime de Rovroy...” to Raoul Bishop of Verdun, with the consent of “Dame Renarde ma femme et Ferrion mon janre signour Dautigney a la Tour et Ysabel ma file sa feme”, by charter dated 25 Aug 1242[481]La Belgique héraldique names “Renarde sœur de Geoffroi de Joinville” as Isabelle’s mother without citing any source on which the information is based[482].  No trace of “Renarde...de Joinville” has been found in the Joinville family (see the document CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY-DAMPIERRE-sur-l’AUBE, JOINVILLE, RAMERUPT).  Goethals says that Isabelle was “sœur du célèbre Jean sire de Joinville...historien du roi saint Louis[483].  He cites no source on which he bases this information, which is disproved by the 25 Aug 1242 charter quoted above.  “Ferrion seigneur d’Autignei” was named with his wife Isabelle in a charter dated 1243[484].  “Fredico dou Chasteler et de Autigneio Dno. et Elisabbet uxori sue” donated a mill to Etanche abbey charter dated 15 Jun 1244, which also states that “pdta. uxor pnoiato F, defucto [predicta uxor prenominato F. defuncto]” her husband confirmed the donation[485].  “Ferris sires dou Chateler” exchanged property with the abbess of Létanche, with the consent of “Isabel ma fame et de Harart mon fil” by charter dated Dec 1264[486].  “Ferris dou Chastelei chevalier et...Ysabelle sa femme et...Erars lour fils” sold “partie...ou bois...Frival” to the bishop of Verdun by charter dated Mar 1270[487]

Ferry & his wife had [four] children (Calmet also names “Laure du Châtelet”, wife of “Henry Comte de Salm, qui vivoit encore en 1288[488], which is an error as Heinrich [IV] Graf von Salm married Laurette von Bliescastel as shown in the document LUXEMBOURG/SALM): 

1.         ERARD [I] du Chastelet (-after 30 Jun 1296).  “Ferris sires dou Chateler” exchanged property with the abbess of Létanche, with the consent of “Isabel ma fame et de Harart mon fil” by charter dated Dec 1264[489].  “Ferris dou Chastelei chevalier et...Ysabelle sa femme et...Erars lour fils” sold “partie...ou bois...Frival” to the bishop of Verdun by charter dated Mar 1270[490].  “Beatrix dame de Dongeus” notified that “Ferri Duc de Loringne et Marchis et messire Ferris sire dou Chasteler qui j’ai fut” had appointed her guarantor for “Monsignor Erard dou Chasteler fil a dit Ferris” by charter dated 30 Jun 1296[491]

2.         JEAN du Chastelet (-[after 19 May 1305?]).  “Jehans fils monsignor Ferry dou Chastellet escuiers et dame Gill sa femme fille de monsignor Wichart signor de Passavant” exchanged her dower from “Uedon conte de Toul que ja fut mes maris” with Ferry III Duke of Lorraine, by charter dated 2 Apr 1285[492].  [It is not certain whether the following references relate to Jean du Chastelet.  La Belgique Héraldique records that “Jean du Chasteler...avec son frère Thierry” left Lorraine in 1295 and that in 1305 Jean “était attaché au comte Charles de Valois[493].  It should be noted that La Belgique Héraldique reproduces what was presumably faked documentation to “prove” the existence of Jean’s supposed brother Thierry and his alleged descendants (see below).  The following documents indicate contact with the Valois family: Jean du Chastelet and his wife Agnès sold property “à Pisson et Foucheroles” to Charles Comte de Valois by charter dated 1303[494], and “...Jean de Casteleir...” was named among the guarantors for Charles Comte de Valois in the 19 May 1305 marriage contract between “Guillaume Comte de Hainaut, Hollande, Zelande et Sire de Frise” and “Jeanne fille aînée de Charles...Comte de Valois[495].  However, the Comte du Chastel identifies the guarantor in this document as Jean du Chasteler [de Moulbais] (see the document HAINAUT)[496].  If that is correct, the connection with Charles Comte de Valois indicates that the 1303 charter would also relate to him.]  m [firstly] (before 2 Apr 1285, Papal dispensation 13 Jan 1292) as her second husband, GILLETTE de Passavant, widow of EUDES Comte de Toul, daughter of GUICHARD Seigneur de Passavant & his first wife Odiarde --- (-before 1303).  “Jehans fils monsignor Ferry dou Chastellet escuiers et dame Gill sa femme fille de monsignor Wichart signor de Passavant” exchanged her dower from “Uedon conte de Toul que ja fut mes maris” with Ferry III Duke of Lorraine, by charter dated 2 Apr 1285[497].  The dispensation for the marriage between “Johanne de Castelleto” and “nobili muliere Gileta de Passavant” and refers to the 3o and 4o consanguinity between the former and “quondam Oddo comes de Tullo, prior Giletæ maritus” is dated 13 Jan 1292[498].  [m secondly AGNES, daughter of ---.  Jean du Chastelet and his wife Agnès sold property “à Pisson et Foucheroles” to Charles Comte de Valois by charter dated 1303[499].  As noted above, some doubt exists whether this document relates to Jean du Chastelet or to Jean du Chasteler [du Moulbais].] Jean & his [first] wife had [five] children: 

a)         [ERARD [II] du Chastelet (-[Jul 1324/25 Mar 1325]).  La Belgique Héraldique records that “Erart dou Chasteleit” who married “Clémence fille de Jean, et sœur de Robin de Mirvalt ou Mirvaut” was named in 1307 and that the couple was living in 1316[500].  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although the 29 Jun 1321 quoted below confirms that he was the brother of Henri who is shown below.  The chronology indicates that Erard [II] was not the same person as Erard [I], given the marriage date of the latter’s parents shown above.  If Erard [II] was the son of Jean du Chastelet, he presumably died before 25 Mar 1325, the date of the charter quoted below in which his supposed brother Ferry is named as seigneur du Chastelet.  The other possibility is that Erard [II] was the son of Erard [I], but in that case it is unclear why his brother Henri would not have inherited the seigneurie du Chastelet rather than Ferry, son of Jean.  Seigneur du Chastelet.  Ferry IV Duke of Lorraine confirmed the pledge given by “nos...cusins...Monseigneur Erar Signour dou Chastellet et Monsignour Henry son freire Signeur d’Antigney Chevaliers” for “Monsignour Gauchier de Chastillon Conte de Pourciens et connestable de France” by charter dated 29 Jun 1321[501].  “Henris cuens de Vademont et Isabel de Lorhaine...sa femme” notified “messires Errars Sire dou Chastelet” of a pledge by charter dated Jul 1324[502]m (before 1307) CLEMENCE de Muraut, daughter of JEAN de Muraut & his wife --- (-after 1316).  La Belgique Héraldique records that “Erart dou Chasteleit” who married “Clémence fille de Jean, et sœur de Robin de Mirvalt ou Mirvaut” was named in 1307 and that the couple was living in 1316[503].  Calmet quotes “une généalogie manuscrite de la maison de Ville-sur-Illon, écrite vers l’an 1490” which records that “Jean de Muraut laissa deux fils ses héritiers, Robin et Jehan.  Celui-ci décéda en 1307 et laissa trois enfants, un fils appellé Robin et deux filles, Clemence et Marie.  Clemence épousa Erard du Châtelet et Marie épousa Gui de Sorbon seigneur de Turterin.  Clemence et Erard son mari vendirent le quart de Lucey etc[504].]

b)         FERRY du Chastelet (-before 23 May 1348).  Seigneur du Chastelet.  “Ferry Sire dou Chastelei escuiers fils Jehan dou Chastelei qui fuit” exchanged part of mills at “Maizey” [same as “Marsey”? see his paternal grandmother’s family] with Henri Bishop of Verdun by charter dated 25 Mar 1325[505].  Ferry presumably died before 23 May 1348 when his nephew Erard [III] is named as seigneur du Chastelet (see below). 

c)         [HENRI du Chastelet (-[1331/Dec 1346]).  Henri was recorded in the 29 Jun 1321 charter quoted below as brother of Erard [II], who as suggested above may have been the son of Jean du Chastelet.  Seigneur d’Autigny.  Ferry IV Duke of Lorraine confirmed the pledge given by “nos...cusins...Monseigneur Erar Signour dou Chastellet et Monsignour Henry son freire Signeur d’Antigney Chevaliers” for “Monsignour Gauchier de Chastillon Conte de Pourciens et connestable de France” by charter dated 29 Jun 1321[506].  “Henri dou Chastelei chevalier et Sires d’Attigny...Adeline ma femme” sold property “à Maizei, à Rouvroy, à Relincourt, à Gerbeiville...” to Henri Bishop of Verdun by charter dated 25 Aug 1329[507].  Henri du Chastelet Seigneur d’Autigny witnessed the charter dated 1331 under which Eudes Duke of Burgundy acquired “le château de Mullei” from “Etienne de Mont-Saint-Jean[508].  Henri presumably died before Dec 1346, when his son Erard was named as seigneur d’Autigny.]  [m firstly --- de Bauffremont, daughter of [PIERRE de Bauffremont Seigneur de Bulgnéville & his wife ---].  Europäische Stammtafeln records “Barbe †(1315)” as daughter of Pierre and her marriage shown here[509].  Dunod suggests Henri’s first marriage on the basis that “la terre de Bulligneville...possédée par ses descendans” was granted as a fief to Henri’s grandson by charter dated 1357 in which he names “feu son oncle Huet de Bauffremont Seigneur de Bulligneville[510].  The Bauffremont name “Liébaud” given to Henri’s son (see below) suggests that Dunod may be correct.  Some doubt is introduced by a later document which suggests that part of the land was inherited by the children of Erard [IV] de Chastelet through their mother: a charter dated 8 Aug 1440 records the settlement of a dispute between “Herard du Chastelet chevalier Seigneur de Dulley et de Cirey...[et] Pierre et autres mes enfans” and “Claude de Tinteville Seigneur de Chanelz et de Comarien” regarding the succession of “feu...Hue de Buligneville jadis seigneur dudit lieu...ses héritiers en partie du costé paternel...ledit Claude de Tinteville et lesdits enffans de...ledit Herard[511].  Calmet notes “une sentence du 1 juin 1491 qui maintient Jacques, Philibert et Pierre du Châtelet en possession de la moitié de la terre de Bulgnéville, contre Jean d’Arberg fils de Jeanne de Baufremont[512].]  m [secondly] ADELINE, daughter of --- (-after 25 Aug 1329).  “Henri dou Chastelei chevalier et Sires d’Attigny...Adeline ma femme” sold property “à Maizei, à Rouvroy, à Relincourt, à Gerbeiville...” to Henri Bishop of Verdun by charter dated 25 Aug 1329[513].  Calmet names “Adeline...fille de Jean Seigneur de Germiny ou Germigny chevalier et sœur de Henry Doyen de Toul, élu évêque de Verdun en 1349” as wife of Henri[514].  Henri & his [first] wife had [six] children: 

i)          ERARD [III] du Chastelet (-after 8 Aug 1395).  Seigneur d’Autigny.  Jeanne de France Duchess of Burgundy granted revenue “sur les tailles de Jussey” to “Erard seigneur d’Antigni” by charter dated Dec 1346[515]Seigneur du Chastelet

Huë de Lorraine Seigneur de Rumigny, Aubenton et Marigny[518]Calmet records his parentage, notes his capture at Ligny 4 Apr 1368 “contre les Messins, il y fut fait prisonnier avec Robert Comte de Bar et 70 autres seigneurs ou chevaliers, qui ne furent élargis qu’en 1370[519].] 

v)        PIERRE-LIEBAUD du Chastelet (-before 11 Jul 1401).  Robert Duke of Bar granted revenue to “Liebault Seigneur du Chastellet chevalier” in return for his allegiance by charter dated 2 Feb 1383[520].  “Liebal du Chastellet chevalier et Renal dudit Chastellet ecuyer” and “Villame de Toulleyres, Simon son fil et Perrin de Deulley ecuyers” appointed the Duke of Lorraine to arbitrate disputes concerning the succession of “feu monsieur Jehan du Val chevalier” by charter dated Jun 1389[521].  He is named as deceased in the 11 Jul 1401 marriage contract of his daughter Jeannette.  m [--- du Val, daughter of JEAN du Val & his wife ---.  Her parentage and marriage are suggested by the following document: “Liebal du Chastellet chevalier et Renal dudit Chastellet ecuyer” and “Villame de Toulleyres, Simon son fil et Perrin de Deulley ecuyers” appointed the Duke of Lorraine to arbitrate disputes concerning the succession of “feu monsieur Jehan du Val chevalier” by charter dated Jun 1389[522].]  Pierre-Liébaud & his wife had [five] children: 

(a)       [LIEBAUD du Chastelet (-after 1395).  Dunod records that Liébaud, son of Pierre, “traita en 1372 avec Erard, Jean et Renaud ses cousins...des droits communs entre eux dans la seigneurie du Chatelet”, was named “Grand Bailli de Nanci” in 1392 and 1395, and names his descendants[523].  According to Calmet, Liébaud du Chastelet bailly de Nancy was the son of Erard [III] du Chastelet (see below)[524].  He cites no source on which this information is based.  No source has been identified which confirms his actual parentage, although his name suggests Bauffremont ancestry (see his supposed paternal grandmother, above).] 

(b)       RENAUD du Chastelet (-after Jun 1389).  “Liebal du Chastellet chevalier et Renal dudit Chastellet ecuyer” and “Villame de Toulleyres, Simon son fil et Perrin de Deulley ecuyers” appointed the Duke of Lorraine to arbitrate disputes concerning the succession of “feu monsieur Jehan du Val chevalier” by charter dated Jun 1389[525]

(d)       ERARD du Chastelet “le Petit Erard” (-12 Dec 1429, bur Neufchâteau Cordeliers).  “Errard du Chastelet ecuyer fils de feu messire Liebaust du Chastellet chevalier et Henry et Karlet de Deüilley ecuyers freres enffens Perrin de Deüilley ecuyer que fuit” ceded “une partie du Bourg...Chastellet” to Charles Duke of Lorraine by charter dated 2 Aug 1408[529]An epitaph at Neufchâteau Cordeliers records the burial of “noble homme écuyer Erard du Chatelet, Seigneur dudit lieu” who died 12 Dec 1429[530]

(e)       JEANNETTE du ChasteletThe marriage contract between Pierre du Chastellet chevalier fils...Liebaut du Chastellet chevalier...Jenatte dudit Chastellet soure germaine audit...Pierre et fille dudit Liebaut” and “Jean sire de Bouxierre” is dated 11 Jul 1401[531]m (contract 11 Jul 1401) JEAN Seigneur de Bouxières, son of ---. 

vi)       JEAN du Chastelet .  Canon at Mainz.  Seigneur d’Autigny: “Noble Jehan du Chastellet sire d’Auttigny escuyer chanoine de Mayence” granted freedoms to Autigny by charter dated 16 Dec 1358[532]

d)         [PIERRE du Chastelet (-after 1348).  Calmet notes “une généalogie manuscrite de la maison du Châtelet” which names Pierre as “Lieutenant et Chef de l’armée de Marie de Blois duchesse de Lorraine” and “gouverneur de Château-Salins” in 1348 when Adhémar Bishop of Metz besieged the castle[533].]  

e)         [AGNES du Chastelet (-[1352/53], bur Clairlieu).  Calmet records her parentage and marriage “vers l’an 1300”, her husband’s father’s name, her only daughter “Philiste de Lénoncourt”, her death in 1352 or 1353, her burial “à Clairleu[534].  Calmet notes “une généalogie de la maison de Savigny” which records her marriage, her death “après l’an 1355”, and her husband’s second marriage to “Jeanne de Paroye[535].  If her marriage date is correctly recorded, a second marriage of her husband after 1355 seems surprising.  m ([1300]) THIERRY de Nancy, son of GERARD de Nancy & his wife ---.] 

3.         [THIERRY du Chastelet .  Dunod’s 1737 Histoire de Bourgogne names a second son of Ferry named Thierry (without recording any descendants)[536].  Calmet’s 1741 Histoire de la maison du Châtelet does not name Thierry among Ferry’s children[537] and no earlier source has been found which corroborates his existence.  The “faked” Lorraine descent of the Marquis du Chasteler (described in the document HAINAUT) equates him to Thierry [I] du Chasteler.  As Dunod wrote a couple of decades before the Marquis du Chasteler, the conclusion must be either that he based the existence of a son named Thierry on a source which has since disappeared or that the “faked” descent was produced earlier, was used by Dunod to justify Thierry’s existence, and was later copied by the Marquis du Chasteler.] 

4.         ISABELLE du Chastelet .  The marriage contract between “Ferris sires dou Chasteler...Ysabel ma fille” and “signour Frankoy de Longwic chevalier” is dated [24 Apr] 1272, specifying as her dowry income from land “à Rouvre[538]m (contract [24 Apr] 1272) FRANCON de Longwic [Longwy?], son of ---. 

 

 

ERARD [III] du Chastelet, son of HENRI du Chastelet Seigneur d’Autigny & his [first wife --- de Bauffremont] (-after 8 Aug 1395).  Seigneur d’Autigny.  Jeanne de France Duchess of Burgundy granted revenue “sur les tailles de Jussey” to “Erard seigneur d’Antigni” by charter dated Dec 1346[539]Seigneur du Chastelet.  A charter dated 22 Jun 1348 confirming freedoms granted to Neufchâteau quotes a charter dated 23 Mar 1348 issued by “Errard Seigneur du Chastellet[540].  “Errard Sire dou Chastellet chevalier et...Jehan fils doudit messire Errard escuyer” granted rights of repurchase of various assets to Jean Duke of Lorraine by charter dated Jan 1364[541]

m ODETTE de Chauviray Dame de Chauviray le Vieil [Comté de Bourgogne], daughter of GAUTHIER de Chauviray & his wife Isabelle d’Oiselay.  Calmet records her parentage and marriage, noting the commission of the parlement de Paris dated 18 May 1347 which records that “Errard de Châtellet et Jehan de Mont-justin chevalier” were “héritiers en partie à cause de leur femmes, de feu Philippe de Chauvirey chevaillier[542]

Erard [III] & his wife had children: 

1.         [ERARD du Chastelet (-after 1372).  Dunod records that Liébaud du Chastelet, son of Pierre, “traita en 1372 avec Erard, Jean et Renaud ses cousins...des droits communs entre eux dans la seigneurie du Chatelet[543].  No other reference has been found to this Erard.  Maybe Dunod reproduced the charter incorrectly, especially as the Jan 1364 charter quoted below suggests that Jean was Erard [III]’s oldest son.]  

2.         JEAN du Chastelet (-after 1372).  “Errard Sire dou Chastellet chevalier et...Jehan fils doudit messire Errard escuyer” granted rights of repurchase of various assets to Jean Duke of Lorraine by charter dated Jan 1364[544].  Dunod records that Liébaud du Chastelet, son of Pierre, “traita en 1372 avec Erard, Jean et Renaud ses cousins...des droits communs entre eux dans la seigneurie du Chatelet[545]

D.      SEIGNEURS de DEUILLY

 

 

Deuilly is located a couple of kilometres north-west of Tignécourt in the present-day French canton of Vosges, about 60 kilometres south of Nancy.  Various documents cited below record the Comtes de Bar and Comtes de Champagne as suzerains of Deuilly, and other fiefs held by the family, at different times.  Poull distinguishes between “[le] château de Deuilly” (held from Champagne) and “le bourg” (Bar)[566], but the documentation suggests that the answer is not as straight-forward especially when taking the other properties into account. 

 

 

GEOFFROY [I] de Vaudémont, son of GERARD [II] Comte de Vaudémont & his first wife Gertrude de Joinville (-[Mar [1239/40]/May 1240]).  Poull records charters dated 1181, 1183, [1190], and 1194 in which Geoffroy was named with his parents, and dated 1195 in which his name was first linked to Deuilly (full citation references)[567]Seigneur de Deuilly.  A list of “milites ferentes Bannerias” in the county of Champagne, dated by Longnon “[1214, à Bouvines?], includes “Galfridus de Duelli[568].  "Hugo comes Waudimontis" recorded a dispute between Montiéramey and "Urricum fratrem emum, de Mainillo Fulchardi" concerning property “in villa de Sephons”, and the settlement in his presence and that of “Gaufridus de Daulli frater meus”, by charter dated May 1215[569].  Geoffroy de Deuilly renewed his homage to the comte de Bar for Deuilly in Feb 1215 (O.S.?), May 1217 and Mar 1239 (O.S.?)[570].  Geoffroy Seigneur de Deuilly donated property to Boulancourt, with the consent of “Guillaume de Deuilly son fils et Aliénor”, by charter dated 1228[571].  "Gaufridus dominus de Dawileio" donated property to Chapelle-aux-Planches, with the consent of "Alienor uxoris mee et Guillelmi filii mei militis", by charter dated May 1233[572].  “Huardus domicellus de Beffroymont et dominus de la Rolleye” [La Rouillie] confirmed donations to Flabémont abbey made by “patre meo Leobaudo” by charter dated Jul 1238, witnessed by “domini de Savilley avunculi mei et domini de Beffroymont fratris mei[573].  Poull indicates that “domini de Savilley” was Geoffroy Seigneur de Deuilly[574]: if he is correct, the precise family relationship represented by the term “avunculus” has not been ascertained.  Geoffroy may have died before May 1240, the date of his son’s charter cited below (although it is unclear from Poull’s summary of that document whether Guillaume was “seigneur” at the time).  Calmet, on the other hand, says that "on croit que Geoffroy de Deuilly mourut en 1248”, without elaborating on the basis for this speculation although presumably it is based on his report of the 1248 mention of his son Guillaume cited below[575]

m firstly ([1196]) as her second husband, BEATRIX de Champlitte, widow of SIMON [III] Seigneur de Clefmont, daughter of EUDES [I] "le Champenois" & his wife Sibylle --- (-[1217/19]).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and two marriages has not been identified.  “Béatrix dame de Clefmont d’accord avec Simon V son fils et Robert trésorier de Langres” donated rights to use woods collect building material to the church of Notre-Dame de Bourg[-Sainte-Marie], for the souls of “Simon IV son mari tué dans l’expédition de Jérusalem et de son fils Guichard”, by charter dated [14 Apr 1191/5 Apr 1192][576].  According to the charter dated Apr 1209, under which [her son] “Simon de Claromonte” acknowledged Blanche comtesse de Champagne as his suzerain, he inherited property “apud Firmitatem super Albam et in Nundinis Campaniæ quod est ex parte matris meæ[577].  The question of her marriages is confused by the following document: [her son] Guillaume de Deuilly sold “une partie des biens qui lui sont revenus lorsqu’il est entré en possession de l’héritage de sa mère”, committing to obtain the consent of “Haymon domino Fuscensii, son demi-frère”, by charter dated Apr 1226, confirmed by the bishop of Langres who specified that “Haymon” was “filiaster, c’est à dire le beau-fils de Joffroi sire de Deuilly[578].  The place indicated by “Fuscencii” has not been identified, although it seems unlikely to refer to Clefmont (the property of Béatrix’s known first husband).  Could the document refer to Béatrix’s son by an otherwise unrecorded second marriage?  If that is correct, it is unclear why the interests of Simon [IV] Seigneur de Clefmont, her older son by her first marriage, would have been ignored in the Apr 1226 document.  The other possibility is therefore that “Haymon” represents a mistranscription for “Simon”, although in that case “Fuscensii” remains unexplained. 

[m secondly ([1219/Oct 1222]) HELVIDE, daughter of --- (-[Oct 1222/early 1226]).  Poull records that Geoffroy de Deuilly and his wife Helvide sold the mill at Longeville de Boulancourt by charter dated Oct 1222[579].  Calmet, on the other hand, says that "sa femme Eleonore” ratified the donations made by “Geoffroy de Deuilly son mari" to the monks of Boulancourt in 1222 and 1223, and that Geoffroy donated property to Flabémont, with the consent of “son fils Guillaume” and for the souls of himself and “Eleonore sa femme”, in 1223[580].  Poull neither mentions other donations to Boulancourt in 1222 and 1223 nor a donation to Flabémont in 1223.  If Calmet correctly records these donations (he provides no source citations), maybe “Helvide” in Poull’s record of the Oct 1222 charter represents a mistranscription (either his own or in the source which he consulted) for “Eléonore”.  If that is correct, maybe this supposed second marriage did not take place.] 

m [secondly/thirdly] ([1225?/Dec 1226]) [as her second husband,] ELEONORE Dame d’Ervy, [widow of MILON Seigneur d’Ervy,] daughter of --- (-after May 1233).  “Alienordis domina de Herviaco” donated money, guaranteed by “dominus Gaufridus de Dawilliaco, cum me duxit in uxorem” assigned “in terra de Bieaufort...apud Longe Ville...”, to Pontigny by charter dated to [25 Mar 1226/24 Mar 1227][581].  “Gaufridus dominus de Dansly...laudante Alienor uxor mea” confirmed a donation, made by “Milo dominus de Herviaco, predecessor meus” in 1213 to Pontigny for the soul of “uxoris mee Helisabet”, by charter dated Dec 1226[582].  Poull says that “Miles sire d’Ervy” was Eléonore’s first husband[583], but the Dec 1226 document describes him only as “predecessor” of Geoffroy de Deuilly.  Geoffroy Seigneur de Deuilly donated property to Boulancourt, with the consent of “Guillaume de Deuilly son fils et Aliénor”, by charter dated 1228[584].  "Gaufridus dominus de Dawileio" donated property to Chapelle-aux-Planches, with the consent of "Alienor uxoris mee et Guillelmi filii mei militis", by charter dated May 1233[585]

Geoffroy [I] & his first wife had [two] children: 

1.         GUILLAUME de Deuilly ([1197/1200?]-[13 Jul 1265/Jun 1272]).  His date of birth is suggested on the assumption that he was born soon after his parents’ marriage, considering that his mother had children several years before by her first marriage.  Poull records charters dated 1209, 1212, 1213, 1217, and 1218 in which Guillaume was named with his parents, dated 1220, Apr 1222, Oct 1222, Oct 1224, Feb 1231 (O.S.?), Mar 1231 (O.S.), and May 1233 with his father (full citation references)[586].  Guillaume de Deuilly sold “une partie des biens qui lui sont revenus lorsqu’il est entré en possession de l’héritage de sa mère”, committing to obtain the consent of “Haymon domino Fuscensii, son demi-frère”, by charter dated Apr 1226, confirmed by the bishop of Langres who specified that Aimon was “filiaster, c’est à dire le beau-fils de Joffroi sire de Deuilly[587].  Geoffroy Seigneur de Deuilly donated property to Boulancourt, with the consent of “Guillaume de Deuilly son fils et Aliénor”, by charter dated 1228[588].  "Gaufridus dominus de Dawileio" donated property to Chapelle-aux-Planches, with the consent of "Alienor uxoris mee et Guillelmi filii mei militis", by charter dated May 1233[589]Seigneur de Deuilly.  Guillaume de Deuilly donated property at “Viviers les Provenchères” to Relanges priory, with the consent of his wife Cécile and his son Pierre, by charter dated May 1240[590], although Poull’s report of this donation does not specify whether Guillaume was named as “seigneur” in the document.  Calmet records that in 1248 Guillaume (from the context as “seigneur de Deuilly”, although his text does not specify this explicitly) sold his rights in "[les] villages de Stront et d’Amancourt” to “Gautier dit Peucer, habitant de Nogent en Bassigni[591].  The abbot of Luxeuil granted “le fief qu’Aubert sire de Darney tenait du sire de Deuilly” to Thibaut Comte de Bar by charter dated May 1248[592].  “Guillaume sire de Deuilly fils de Joffroi”, with the consent of “Alix sa femme et de Joffroi son fils aîné”, granted the fiefs (at “Vaudoncourt, Sauville, Bulgnéville et Médonville”) held from him by “Aubert sire de Damey son niez” to Thibaut Comte de Bar by charter dated Apr 1256[593].  Homages sworn to Thibaut Comte de Champagne include “Monseigneur Guillaume de Duili, ligez après le conte de Bar du donnion de la forteresse du chastel de Duili...et moult de fiez à la Fermeté et en la chastellenie”, noting that in 1256 he delivered “ycelle chose des seignouries auz seigneurs de Champaigne[594].  Calmet records that in 1248 Guillaume (from the context as “seigneur de Deuilly”, although his text does not specify this explicitly) sold his rights in "[les] villages de Stront et d’Amancourt” to “Gautier dit Peucer, habitant de Nogent en Bassigni[595].  Poull records other charters dated 15 Apr 1252, Oct 1255, Dec 1256, Jan 1257 (O.S.?), and 13 Jul 1265 which name Guillaume (full citation references)[596].  “Guillaume seigneur de Deuilly”, having granted a fief held from Thibaut V Comte de Champagne to “Joffroi son fils”, requested Comte Thibaut to receive Geoffroy’s homage by charter dated 13 Jul 1265[597].  Guillaume presumably died before Jun 1272 when Anseau was recorded as Seigneur de Deuilly (see below).  m firstly CECILE, daughter of --- (-[May 1240/1246]).  Guillaume de Deuilly donated property at “Viviers les Provenchères” to Relanges priory, with the consent of his wife Cécile and his son Pierre, by charter dated May 1240[598]m secondly ([May 1240/1246]) ALIX, daughter of --- (-after Apr 1256).  Poull records that Guillaume’s wife Alix was named in a charter dated 1246 (no details)[599].  “Guillaume sire de Deuilly fils de Joffroi”, with the consent of “Alix sa femme et de Joffroi son fils aîné”, granted the fiefs (at “Vaudoncourt, Sauville, Bulgnéville et Médonville”) held from him by “Aubert sire de Damey son niez” to Thibaut Comte de Bar by charter dated Apr 1256[600].  Guillaume & his first wife had [four] children: 

a)         PIERRE de Deuilly ([1225/30?]-after May 1240).  Guillaume de Deuilly donated property at “Viviers les Provenchères” to Relanges priory, with the consent of his wife Cécile and his son Pierre, by charter dated May 1240[601].  His date of birth is estimated from his father’s estimated birth date.  Pierre presumably died before Apr 1256 when his brother Geoffroy was named with their parents as their oldest son, as noted below. 

b)         GEOFFROY [II] de Deuilly ([1226/33?]-after 13 Jul 1265).  His birth date is estimated from his older brother’s estimated birth date.  “Guillaume sire de Deuilly fils de Joffroi”, with the consent of “Alix sa femme et de Joffroi son fils aîné”, granted the fiefs (at “Vaudoncourt, Sauville, Bulgnéville et Médonville”) held from him by “Aubert sire de Damey son niez” to Thibaut Comte de Bar by charter dated Apr 1256[602].  “Guillaume seigneur de Deuilly”, having granted a fief held from Thibaut V Comte de Champagne to “Joffroi son fils”, requested Comte Thibaut to receive Geoffroy’s homage by charter dated 13 Jul 1265[603].  In this connection, Calmet says that this grant is listed "dans le Registre de Champagne fol. 421” which records that “son pere lui donna tout ce qu’il avoit sur les foires de Troyes et de Bar, et dans la terre de la Ferté” for which he swore homage to Thibaut V Comte de Champagne, King of Navarre “le Jeudy prochain avant la division des Apôtres 1255[604].  This record has not been found in Longnon’s records of Champagne fiefs.  It is assumed that Calmet was somewhat confused by the different homages sworn to Champagne by the Deuilly family, as in a later passage he says that "Geoffroy, Seigneur de Deuilly III. du nom, apparamment fils de Geoffroy II” swore homage “de son Château de Deuilly au Comte de Champagne en 1265[605], which seems to refer to the 13 Jul 1265 homage recorded by Poull.  No other record has been found of this supposed Geoffroy [III].  No record has been found confirming that Geoffroy [II] succeeded his father as Seigneur de Deuilly but, if he did, he must have died before Jun 1272 when Anseau was recorded as seigneur (see below). 

c)         [NICOLAS de Deuilly (-31 Mar ----, after 1265).  Poull suggests that Nicolas was a younger son of Guillaume (which appears consistent with the date of the 19 Jun 1265 charter), noting his appointment as chancellor of Remiremont, reported in a document dated 19 Jun 1265, his date of death, and his donations to Remiremont[606].] 

d)         [MARGUERITE de Deuilly (-[12 Aug or 16 Sep] before 1316).  Poull suggests that Marguerite was the daughter of Guillaume, noting that she was a nun at Remiremont, and her possible dates of death[607].  Presumably, other alternatives include Anseau de Deuilly or Geoffroy [II] as her father.] 

2.         [GILLE [de Deuilly] (-[Mar [1254/55]/Feb [1259/60]).  Guillaume sire de Deuilly fils de Joffroi”, with the consent of “Alix sa femme et de Joffroi son fils aîné”, granted the fiefs (at “Vaudoncourt, Sauville, Bulgnéville et Médonville”) held from him by “Aubert sire de Damey son niez” to Thibaut Comte de Bar by charter dated Apr 1256[608].  Poull, assuming that “niez” should be interpreted in its strict sense of nephew, names “Gille” as second wife of “Aubert sire de Darney chevalier” who was named in documents dated from 1213 and who donated property to Droiteval, with the consent of “Gile son épouse ainsi que de Jean et Aubertin ses fils” by charter dated Mar 1254 (O.S.?), while Aubert donated property to Morimond, with the consent of “Jean et Aubertin ses frères”, for the souls of his parents by charter dated Feb 1259 (O.S.?)[609].  Other possibilities include the Darney/Deuilly family relationship being through Guillaume’s mother or wife.  m as his second wife, AUBERT Seigneur de Darney, son of --- (-[Mar [1254/55]/Apr 1256).] 

 

 

The parentage of Anseau de Deuilly has not been ascertained.  Poull suggests that he was a younger son of Guillaume Seigneur de Deuilly, younger than his supposed brother Colin (see below for discussion about Colin’s parentage)[610], which does not seem possible if Anseau succeeded as “seigneur de Deuilly”.  Calmet says that he was "fils de Geoffroy [presumably indicating Geoffroy [I]] et frere de Villaume [indicating Guillaume, son of Geoffroy [I]]”[611], which does not explain his succession as “seigneur” either unless Guillaume died without surviving issue.  Presumably another explanation could be that Anseau held the seigneurie during the minority of Colin Seigneur de Deuilly, as the most senior male representative of the family.  If that is correct, he could have been the son of Geoffroy [I], the chronology suggesting that he would have been born to Geoffroy’s [second/third] wife Eléonore. 

 

1.         ANSEAU de Deuilly (-before 1283).  Seigneur de Deuilly.  Poull says that Anseau “sire de Deuilly” ordered “son maire de Richebourg” to pay “une redevance aux moines du Val des Ecoliers” dated “le lundi après la fête de St-Jean-Baptiste 1272[612].  Homages sworn to Blanche d’Artois Ctss de Champagne, Queen of Navarre dated 1274-1275 include “Ansiaus de Diuilli” holding from “ma dame la roïne...le donjon de Diuilli ligement et ce que il a ligement à la Ferté sus Aube...[et] à Longe-Vile et à Hemetel et à Chavanges en la chatelerie de Biaufort...et dou donjon de Diuilli...[et] à Fontenoy” in the bailliage de Chaumont “en la châtelerie de la Ferté sus Aube[613].  Calmet says that Anseau "vivoit encore en 1276, selon le Manuscrit de M. d’Hozier[614].  The existence of Anseau as seigneur de Deuilly is confirmed by Colin Seigneur de Deuilly granting rights to the people of Chavanges and Fontenoy, confirming the acts of his predecessors in particular “Anseau sire de Deuilly”, by charter dated 1283 (see below)[615]

 

 

Two brothers.  Their sibling relationship is confirmed by the Sep 1285 charter cited below, but their precise parentage has not been ascertained.  Poull says that they were sons of Guillaume Seigneur de Deuilly, and that “Colin” succeeded Guillaume as seigneur, his older brothers Pierre and Geoffroy [II] having died[616].  The chronology of Colin’s descendants suggests a problem with that supposition.  Calmet notes that Colin and Guillaume were brothers, but he does not name their father[617].  The question is complicated by the existence of Anseau Seigneur de Deuilly (see above).  As suggested above, one explanation for Anseau holding the seigneurie is that Colin was a minor when he succeeded with Anseau, his guardian, named “seigneur” in that capacity.  If that is correct, Colin and Guillaume could have been sons of Geoffroy [II], born maybe in [1255/60].  That date would be consistent with Colin’s first mention as seigneur in 1283, by which time he would have reached the age of majority, and also seems consistent with the chronology of Colin’s descendants. 

 

1.         COLIN [Nicolas?] de Deuilly ([1255/60?]-after May 1287)Seigneur de DeuillyColin Seigneur de Deuilly granted rights to the people of Chavanges and Fontenoy, confirming the acts of his predecessors in particular “Anseau sire de Deuilly”, by charter dated 1283[618].  Colin Seigneur de Deuilly sold certain rights in various fiefs to the Comte de Bar by charter dated Sep 1285, sealed by “Guillaume de Deuilly moine de Saint-Epvre de Toul et prieur de Deuilly frère de Colin...[619].  Colin Seigneur de Deuilly swore homage to Othon Comte Palatin de Bourgogne for his fiefs at “Godoncourt...”, by charter dated Apr 1286[620].  Calmet records that "Colin Sire de Deuilly écuyer” donated property to Flabémont, with the consent of “Hailis sa femme", by charter dated May 1287[621]m ALIX, daughter of --- (-after May 1287).  Colin Seigneur de Deuilly granted rights to the people of Chavanges and Fontenoy, confirming the acts of his predecessors in particular “Anseau sire de Deuilly”, and naming his wife Alix, by charter dated 1283[622].  Calmet records that "Colin Sire de Deuilly écuyer” donated property to Flabémont, with the consent of “Hailis sa femme", by charter dated May 1287[623].  Colin & his wife had children: 

a)         JEAN de Deuilly (-after 1318).  Seigneur de Deuilly.  Poull, noting Jean as the son of Colin, says that a charter dated late-Apr 1303 records that “Jean sire de Deuilly...[précisant] sa filiation” took control of Boulancourt priory from Henri Comte de Vaudémont, listing the priory’s properties[624].  Referring to the same document, Calmet says that it names “Jean de Deuilly, fils de René de Deuilly[625]: no other reference to “René” has been found, this contradiction remaining unexplained.  Calmet records that “Jean et Henry freres, Seigneurs de Deuilly” reached agreement with Flabémont in Aug 1305 and were also named in another charter of Flabémont dated 1314[626].  Calmet says that “Jean Sire de Montreuil sur Saone” granted “le donjon de Deuilly à Jean Sire de Deuilly” for his services in 1312, that Jean was captured in 1313 at the battle of Frouard while serving Edouard Comte de Bar, that Jean confirmed a donation to Flabémont in 1315, and that “Jean Chevalier Sire de Deuilly et Marguerite sa femme” were named in another charter of Flabémont dated 1318[627]m MARGUERITE, daughter of --- (-after 1318).  Calmet records that “Jean Chevalier Sire de Deuilly et Marguerite sa femme” were named in a charter of Flabémont dated 1318[628]

b)         HENRI de Deuilly (-2 Mar 1348, bur Flabémont).  Seigneur de DeuillyCalmet records that “Jean et Henry freres, Seigneurs de Deuilly” reached agreement with Flabémont in Aug 1305 (although he later contradicts himself about the family relationship by saying that “Henri Chevalier Sire de Deuilly fut apparemment fils de Jean”)[629]

-        see below

c)         [JEANNE [Sibylle] de Deuilly (-18 Oct before 1338).  Poull suggests her parentage, noting that she was a nun at Remiremont, and was later abbess of Poussay, and died before 1338, commemorated 18 Oct in one of the necrologies of Remiremont[630].] 

2.         GUILLAUME de Deuilly (-after May 1287).  Poull records sources dated Sep 1285 (as Prior of Deuilly and monk at Saint-Epvre de Toul, when he sealed a document of Colin his brother, see below) and in May 1287 (sealing his brother’s donation to Flabémont) in which he was named[631].  Prior of Deuilly. 

 

 

HENRI de Deuilly, son of COLIN [Nicolas?] Seigneur de Deuilly & his wife Alix --- (-2 Mar 1348, bur Flabémont)Seigneur de Deuilly.  Calmet records that “Jean et Henry freres, Seigneurs de Deuilly” reached agreement with Flabémont in Aug 1305 (although he later contradicts himself about the family relationship by saying that “Henri Chevalier Sire de Deuilly fut apparemment fils de Jean”) and were also named in another charter of Flabémont dated 1314[632].  Calmet records that Henri was named in documents dated 1320, 1321 (as “Châtelain de Coëssy dans un traîté passé à Paris”), 1339 (acknowledged holding Deuilly from the Comte de Bar), and that he died “le Dimanche avant les Brandons, l’an 1347 [O.S.?] selon le compte du Domaine de Champagne” (citing “M. Dufourny, Généalogie de Deuilly”)[633].  “Henry et Colas Chevaliers Seigneurs de Deuilly” reached agreement with “les Communes de Deuilly et de Serocourt” by charter dated 1342[634].  “Messire Henry de Deuilly chevalier et Colin ses filz” confirmed holding “la maison fort de Remonville” from “monsiour Liebaus signour de Boffromont”, confirming his earlier agreement with “monsiour Vauthier signour de Boffromont cui Diey ait”, by charter dated 6 Mar 1345 (O.S.)[635]

m (before Jan 1319) LAURE de Bauffremont, daughter of PIERRE de Bauffremont Seigneur de Removille & his wife Marguerite d’Autrey (-before 1341, bur Flabémont).  Calmet says that Henri married “Dame Lore”, without specifying her family origin, noting that the couple donated a mill to Flabémont in Jan 1318 (O.S.?)[636]Europäische Stammtafeln shows her parentage and marriage[637].  Her parentage is indicated by the charters dated 6 Mar 1345 (O.S.) and 3 Feb 1348 (O.S.) under which her husband and sons Colin and Simon swore homage to the Seigneur de Bauffremont for Removille.  She died before 1341 when her son Jean was assessed for one of her fiefs (see below). 

Henri & his wife had six children: 

1.         COLIN [Colard/Nicolas] de Deuilly (-after 21 Sep 1360).  Poull records sources dated 1 Feb 1337 and Sep 1339 in which he was named[638]Seigneur de Deuilly.  “Henry et Colas Chevaliers Seigneurs de Deuilly” reached agreement with “les Communes de Deuilly et de Serocourt” by charter dated 1342[639].  “Messire Henry de Deuilly chevalier et Colin ses filz” confirmed holding “la maison fort de Remonville” from “monsiour Liebaus signour de Boffromont”, confirming his earlier agreement with “monsiour Vauthier signour de Boffromont cui Diey ait”, by charter dated 6 Mar 1345 (O.S.)[640].  Poull records other sources dated Jul 1340, 1343, 1345, 1349, 1350, and 21 Sep 1360 in which he was named[641]m ([Aug] 1335) AGNES de Haraucourt, daughter of GERARD de Haraucourt & his wife Marguerite --- (-5 Aug ----).  Henri Comte de Vaudémont granted a loan to “Colart de Deuilly, Chevalier”, to be repaid “à la Pentecôte 1336”, on his marriage to “Agnes fille de Gerard Seigneur d’Haraucourt, Seigneur de Loup” by charter dated Aug 1335[642].  The necrology of Les Dames Précheresses de Nancy records the death 5 Aug of “Nobilis domine Annetis uxor domini Nicholay de Deulleyo militis[643].  Colin & his wife had two children: 

a)         ALIX de Deuilly (-after 21 Jan 1401).  Her parentage is confirmed, and her first marriage indicated, by the 9 Apr 1410 charter cited below.  Poull records her first husband’s name, his parents, his children by his first marriage, his date of death “à l’issue d’une existence mouvementée”, and details of her second marriage[644]m firstly as his second wife, JEAN Seigneur de Chauffour, son of JEAN Seigneur de Chauffour & his wife Marguerite d’Echalot (-[1380]).  m secondly ([1380/8 May 1382) JEAN de Montferrand co-Seigneur de Cusey, son of ---.  One child: 

i)          JEANNE de Chauffour (-28 Nov 1435, bur Neufchâteau église des Cordeliers).  Poull records her parentage, her marriage date, and her husband’s homage 21 Jan 1401 to the French king “au nom de dame Alix de Deuilly, mère de Jeanne de Chauffour son épouse, pour le château de Deuilly, qui a jadis fut à messire Collart dudit Deuilly, père à la-dite damoiselle Alix”, and the couple’s dates of death and place of burial[645].  “Regnault du Chastelet chevalier Seigneur de Deuilley en partie et dame Jeanne de Chauffour sa femme” agreed to repurchase “le four...de Serecourt” by charter dated 25 Jan 1406[646].  A charter dated 9 Apr 1410 records that “Regnaut du Châtellet chevalier...à cause de...Jeanne de Chauffour sa femme” agreed to payments owed on property “en la ville d’Ainville...à cause de feu messire Colard de Deuilly jadis grand-pere de ladite femme, à qui fut baillée il y a long-temps par feu le Comte Henry pere dudit seigneur[647].  “Regnault du Chastelet chevalier Seigneur de Deueilley et dame Jehanne de Chauffours sa femme” divided their territories between “Errard du Chassellet chevalier seigneur de Sirey, Gerart et Philebert ses freres endans desdits...Regnault et...Jehanne, ledit Philibert licentié de son dit pere” by charter dated 17 Jul 1430[648]m (before 1390) RENAUD Seigneur du Chastelet, son of ERARD [III] Seigneur du Chastelet & his wife Odette de Chauviray (-22 Mar 1431, bur Neufchâteau église des Cordeliers).  Co-Seigneur de Deuilly et de Removille. 

b)         MARGUERITE de Deuilly .  Poull records her parentage, her marriage, and details of her husband’s career[649]m as his second wife, JEAN d’Haussonville, son of BURNEQUIN d’Haussonville & his wife Hauwix de Varize (-15 Aug 1400, bur Belchamps). 

2.         JEAN de Deuilly (-after 15 Jun 1362).  “Jehan de Duilly escuier” was assessed for “le fié qui eschey à ma dame Lore sa mere et jadiz fame mon seigneur Henry de Duilly chevalier” in “la baillie de Chaumont” dated 1341[650], Jean presumably being adult at the time.  Poull records sources dated 9 Jan 1358 (O.S.?), 21 Apr 1359, 23 May 1359, and 15 Jun 1362 in which he was named[651]

3.         SIMON de Deuilly (-[1365/67])Seigneur de Removille: “Simon de Deuilley ecuyer fils de feu monsignour Henry de Deuilley chevalier” swore homage to “monsignour Liebauz signour de Beffromont” for “la forte maison de Remonvile” by charter dated 3 Feb 1348 (O.S.)[652].  - see below

4.         ALIX de Deuilly (-after 1343).  Calmet records her parentage, noting that she was a nun at Poulengy and received annual payments from 1343[653]

5.         [MARGUERITE de Deuilly (-14 Sep 1390).  Poull suggests her parentage, noting that she was a nun at Remiremont before 13 May 1366 and died “très âgée au cours de 1390”, being recorded 14 Sep in the necrology of Remiremont[654].] 

6.         [CLEMENCE de Deuilly (-Nov 1359).  Poull suggests her parentage, noting that she was a nun at Epinal in [1340], and died Nov 1359[655].] 

 

 

The reconstruction of the later generations of this family shown below is based on Poull, who cites numerous sources which confirm the family relationships[656].  On the other hand, Calmet records some additional family members whose existence has not been verified.  For example, he adds “Guyot/Guy de Deuilly” as third son of Simon de Deuilly, after Pierre and Jean[657].  Calmet does not name Simon’s son Jacques (shown by Poull as the second son, the family relationship being confirmed, he says, by a 1393 document), which suggests possible confusion about the names of Simon’s sons.  Calmet also names “Vari de Deuilly” (named in documents dated 1456 and 1488, “apparamment père de Henri de Deuilly” named in 1512) and “Colart de Deuilly” (named in 1444) as sons of Charles de Deuilly and supposed brothers of Catherine who is shown by Poull as Charles’s only child[658].  This suggestion does not appear consistent with Catherine’s inheritance of the family properties, and her own succession which was disputed between her children by her two husbands.  Presumably it is possible that “Vari” and “Colart” were illegitimate children of the Deuilly family. 

 

SIMON de Deuilly, son of HENRI Seigneur de Deuilly & his wife Laure de Bauffremont (-[1365/67]).  Seigneur de Removille: “Simon de Deuilley ecuyer fils de feu monsignour Henry de Deuilley chevalier” swore homage to “monsignour Liebauz signour de Beffromont” for “la forte maison de Remonvile” by charter dated 3 Feb 1348 (O.S.)[659].  Poull records sources dated end-Dec 1343, 1349, 28 Mar 1354 in which he was named, adding that he died “entre 1365 et 1367[660].  

m JEANNE de Serrières, daughter of PIERRE de Serrières Seigneur de Belleville & his wife --- (-after 1385).  She married secondly Carlet de Châtel Seigneur de Fontenoy.  Poull records her parentage and two marriages, citing documents dated between 1334 and 1356 which name her father, a charter dated 18 May 1367 under which she and her children swore homage to the Duc de Bar, her delivery of Removille to the English in 1374, and her date of death[661]

Simon & his wife had five children: 

1.         PIERRE [Perrin] de Deuilly (-[1406/Aug 1408], bur [Flabémont]).  Co-Seigneur de Deuilly et de Removille.  Poull cites numerous documents dated between Jun 1367 and 1406 in which he was named[662]m ---.  The name of Pierre’s wife is not known.  Pierre & his wife had [four] children: 

a)         CHARLES [Charlot/Karlet] de Deuilly (-14 [Jun/Dec] 1419).  Co-Seigneur de Deuilly et de Removille.  Poull cites numerous documents dated between 27 Oct 1404 and 20 Mar 1419 in which he was named, including the destruction of Deuilly by Renaud du Chastelet (see above) and the revenge capture of Le Chastelet by Charles and his brother, who sold their properties to the Duke of Lorraine 2 Aug 1408/10 Feb 1409[663]m (early 1406) JEANNE de Ludres, daughter of COLIGNON de Ludres Seigneur de Brémoncourt & his wife Catherine de Rosières (-after 24 Apr 1421).  Charles & his wife had one child: 

i)          CATHERINE de Deuilly ([end 1406/early 1407]-[2 Jul 1478/5 May 1480]).  Poull records that Catherine inherited “des châteaux et seigneuries de Deuilly, Removille et Brémoncourt dont les dépendances sont considérables”, names her children by both marriages, and notes the disputed succession between her descendants from her two marriages which followed her death[664]m firstly ANTOINE de Ville-sur-Illon, son of ANDRE de Ville-sur-Illon & his wife Isabelle d’Epinal (-killed in battle Bulgnéville 2 Jul 1431).  m secondly ([16 Mar 1440/1444]) JACQUES de Haraucourt Seigneur de Germiny, son of JEAN de Haraucourt & his wife Catherine d’Amance (-1476, before 18 Sep, bur Bayon). 

b)         HENRI de Deuilly (-[1404/21]). 

c)         [JEANNE de Deuilly (-after 1414).  m (before 1414) GILLES dit Treuvedenier de Neufchâteau, son of ---.]  

d)         [ALEYDIS de Deuilly (-1419).] 

2.         JACQUES de Deuilly (-after 1393).  Poull cites documents dated Jul/Aug 1369, 16 Apr 1370, 27 Jul 1383, and 1393 (with his brothers Pierre and Jean) in which he was named[665]

3.         JEAN de Deuilly (-after 1393).  Named with his brothers Pierre and Jacques in a document dated 1393[666]

4.         AGNES de Deuilly (-before 1390).  Poull records information about her husband’s family (he was half-brother of Jeanne de Chauffour, shown above as daughter of Alix de Deuilly), his second marriage, and children by both marriages[667]m as his first wife, GUILLAUME dit Raillart du Chauffour Seigneur de Marac, son of JEAN Seigneur de Chauffour & his first wife --- (-after 1422). 

5.         COMTESSE de Deuilly (-after 1396).  Poull speculates about her husband’s parentage, provides details about his career, and names the couple’s two daughters[668]m GEOFFROY de Fontenoy, son of [CHARLES [Carlet] de Châtel Seigneur de Fontenoy & his first wife ---] (-after 5 Dec 1415). 

 

 

 

E.      SEIGNEURS de FLORANGES

 

 

Floranges (Flörchingen in German) is situated on the west bank of the Moselle river, on the southern outskirts of Thionville about 10 kilometres south of the present-day border between France and Luxembourg and about 15 kilometres north of Metz, in the French département of Moselle.  Calmet says that Floranges was an ancient royal palace which Emperor Lothar granted to his nephew Robert de Lorraine, son of Simon I Duke of Lorraine, in 1136 (which date seems chronologically impossible)[669].  Poull records that the grant of Floranges was made in 1153 to Duke Mathieu I (presumably by Friedrich I King of Germany, later Emperor Friedrich I)[670].  The date when Floranges passed to Duke Mathieu’s younger brother Robert, shown below, is not known. 

 

 

ROBERT [I] de Lorraine, son of SIMON I Duke of Lorraine & his wife Adelaide de Louvain (before 1139-before 1206, bur Sturzelbronn [Stulzbron][671]).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1193 names "dux Matheus et Robertus" as sons of "ducis Symonis"[672].  “Matthæus Lotharingiæ dux et marchio” granted toll exemptions at Neuf-château to the abbey of Saint-Bénigne de Dijon, with the consent of dominæ Berthæ sucissæ uxoris meæ et Roberti fratris mei et filiorum meorum Simonis et Friderici”, by charter dated 14 Oct 1166[673]Comte [de ---]: “Berta ducissa et dux Simon filius meus” confirmed donations which “maritum meum…ducem Mathæum” wished to make at the end of his life by charter dated 1176, subscribed by “…Robertus comes frater Mathæi ducis…[674]Dominus Symon dux, comes Robertus patruus eius…” subscribed a charter dated to [1176/79] under which Thierry elect of Metz confirmed rights of Gorze Abbey[675]Seigneur de Floranges: “Robert I Herr von Flörchingen” donated rights to Justemont by charter dated 1193[676].  Poull records other documents dated 4 Mar 1159, 1165, 1166, 1168, 14 May 1176, 13 Sep 1179, and 18 Oct 1194 in which Robert was named[677].  Robert presumably died before 1206, the date of his son Philippe’s charter cited below. 

m EUPHEMIA, daughter of --- (-after 1193).  Poull records her marriage, noting a charter dated 1193 which names the couple[678].  Calmet says that Robert married “Demundes fille et héritière d’Oaldus Comte de Boulay...bienfaiteur de l’abbaye de Freistroff, fondée en 1130” who died 1183 and was buried at Freistorff (no sources cited)[679].  He assumes that Robert who married Euphemia was the son of Robert and “Demundes[680], although the sources cited in this section indicate the existence of only one Robert.  It is presumably possible that Robert [I] married an earlier wife, but not “Demundes” who was apparently the wife of Robert [II] (see below). 

Robert [I] & his wife had two children: 

1.         PHILIPPE [I] de Floranges (-[30 Nov 1228/1235?], bur Justemont).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1193 names "Philippi de Florehenges" as son of "Robertus [filius] ducis Symonis"[681].  His parentage is confirmed by the Nov 1253 document quoted below under his grandson Philippe [II].  “Philippus dominus de Floreengens” confirmed the donation to Justemont made by “pater meus Robertus”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Matildis et filii mei Roberti et fratris mei R.”, by charter dated 1206[682].  Müsebeck cites other charters dated 2 Nov 1208, Apr 1210, and 10 Jul 1220 in which Philippe is named[683].  Philippe confirmed the donation made by his father Robert to Justemont by charter dated 1221[684].  Poull cites other documents which name Philippe: undated (swearing allegiance for Floranges to Mathieu II Duke of Lorraine, so dated after early 1220, presumably required after Mathieu’s succession), 16 Feb 1224 (swearing allegiance to the comte de Luxembourg for Floranges: this change of suzerain has not been explained), and 30 Nov 1228.  Poull suggests that Philippe [I] died “vers 1235”, and records his burial at Justemont[685]m MATHILDE, daughter of --- (-after 1206).  “Philippus dominus de Floreengens” confirmed the donation to Justemont made by “pater meus Robertus”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Matildis et filii mei Roberti et fratris mei R.”, by charter dated 1206[686].  Philippe [I] & his wife had two children: 

a)         ROBERT [II] de Floranges (-[1250], bur [Justemont]).  His parentage is confirmed by the Nov 1253 document quoted below under his son Philippe [II].  “Philippus dominus de Floreengens” confirmed the donation to Justemont made by “pater meus Robertus”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Matildis et filii mei Roberti et fratris mei R.”, by charter dated 1206[687]Seigneur de Floranges

-        see below

b)         PHILIPPE de Floranges (-20 Dec 1297, bur Metz Cathedral).  Poull names Philippe as son of Philippe de Floranges[688].  Calmet is more cautious, indicating that “je conjecture que Philippe de Florenges dénommé en 1223 peut être père de Philippe de Florenges Evêque de Metz[689]Gallia Christiana names him “sanguine ducum Lotharingiæ ortus Philippus, filius Philippi I dynastæ de Florenges, Simone I duce avo progeniti[690].  If Bishop Philippe was the son of Philippe, his date of death suggests that he would have been considerably younger than his brother Robert.  Provost of Saint-Dié.  Treasurer of Metz.  Bishop of Metz 1261, resigned 1264.  The Gesta Episcoporum Mettensium (Continuatio) records the succession of “Phillippus de Florehenges[691].  Poull records his ecclesiastical appointments, and documents dated 1237, 26 Sep 1250 (specifying his family relationship with “Clémence de Rosières” wife of “Robert sire de Neuviller et de Hombourg”), before 1260, Mar 1261, and 1261-64 in which he was named, the date of his death (“très âgé”), and his place of burial[692]

2.         R[OBERT] de Floranges (-after 1206).  “Philippus dominus de Floreengens” confirmed the donation to Justemont made by “pater meus Robertus”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Matildis et filii mei Roberti et fratris mei R.”, by charter dated 1206[693]

 

 

In addition to the above, Calmet notes two other apparently close family members whose relationships to the main Floranges line have not been confirmed.  In the case of Philippe, he suggests that he “pouvoit être” the father of Philippe who swore homage to the comte de Luxembourg (shown above as Philippe [I]).  However, this extra generation seems incompatible with the likely chronology of the early Floranges family shown above and is also inconsistent with the Nov 1253 charter cited below under Philippe [II].  Poull, citing only Calmet, suggests that Philippe was a younger son of Philippe [I] but indicates that he “meurt en bas-âge en 1221[694], which Calmet does not specify at all.  Another possibility is presumably that Calmet’s “1221” represents an error or mistranscription of a later date (“1231”?) and that the entry refers to the death of Philippe [I].  On the other hand, Calmet’s reference to the second person, Robert, also named “seigneur d’Emery”, suggests that the two may have been closely related.  The seigneurie of “Ennery” was later granted as an apanage to Colard, son of Robert [II] (see below), while Poull names Demudis “dame d’Ennery” as mother of Colard.  Calmet’s references to the following two persons as “de Floranges” suggests that Ennery entered the Floranges family earlier than Demudis’s marriage.  If that is correct, the chronology suggests that Philippe and Robert could have been sons of R[obert], younger son of Robert [I].  However, the 1224 charter cited below under Robert Seigneur d’Ennery does not mention “Floranges”, which suggests that he and his predecessor Philippe could have been Demudis’s predecessors in Ennery and did not belong to the Floranges family at all. 

 

1.         PHILIPPE [de Floranges] (-1221, bur Justemont).  Seigneur d’Ennery [Emery?].  Calmet records “Philippe [de Florenges] mort en 1221, qualifié Seigneur d’Emery, enterré à Justemont” (no source cited)[695]

 

2.         ROBERT [de Floranges] (-1232, bur Justemont).  Seigneur d’Ennery [Emery?].  A charter dated 1224 records the settlement of a dispute between “fratres de Vilers” [Kloster Villers-Bettnach] and “dominum Robertum de Henerey” relating to property “a monte Morsperc usque ad Styngrouve[696].  Müsebeck suggests that this document relates to Robert [II] Seigneur de Floranges, which seems unlikely to be correct considering when Robert [II]’s father died (see above).  It seems more likely that it relates to the person cited by Calmet below.  “...Philippe de Florange, Robert d’Ennery...” were named as guarantors in a charter dated 30 Nov 1228 which records the release of Mathieu II Duke of Lorraine from a debt[697].  Calmet records “en 1232, Robert de Florenges, Seigneur d’Emery, enterré à Justemont” (no source cited)[698].  This reference is ignored by Poull.  The Apr 1236 charter cited below under Robert [II], which names him “sires de...Anerey”, indicates that Robert [de Floranges] must have died childless and was succeeded in Ennery by Robert [II]. 

 

 

ROBERT [II] de Floranges, son of PHILIPPE [I] Seigneur de Floranges & his wife Mathilde --- (-[1250], bur [Justemont]).  His parentage is confirmed by the Nov 1253 document quoted below under his son Philippe [II].  “Philippus dominus de Floreengens” confirmed the donation to Justemont made by “pater meus Robertus”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Matildis et filii mei Roberti et fratris mei R.”, by charter dated 1206[699]Seigneur de Floranges.  “...Philippe de Florange, Robert d’Ennery...” were named as guarantors in a charter dated 30 Nov 1228 which records the release of Mathieu II Duke of Lorraine from a debt[700].  “Robers sires de Florehenges et Anerey et ma damme Demuet ma femme” donated “le trefonz des trois parties de la moitiet de tout lou dizme d’Anerey gros et menuit” to Metz Saint-Vincent by charter dated Apr 1236[701].  Poull cites other documents dated 15 Apr 1236, and several dated before 1250 which name Robert, and suggests that he died “vers cette époque” and was probably buried at Justemont[702]

m (before [1220]) as her second husband, DEMUDIS [Dame d’Ennery], widow of THOMAS Seigneur de Boulay, daughter of --- (-after Apr 1236).  “Demuedis, appelée aussi ‘Demuet’, dame d’Ennery” confirmed a donation made by “Thomas sire de Boulay...son premier mari” by charter dated to [1220], sealed by “mariti mei domini Roberti de Floranges[703].  “Robers sires de Florehenges et Anerey et ma damme Demuet ma femme” donated “le trefonz des trois parties de la moitiet de tout lou dizme d’Anerey gros et menuit” to Metz Saint-Vincent by charter dated Apr 1236[704]

Robert [II] & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         PHILIPPE [II] de Floranges (-[8 Oct 1277/12 Dec 1283]).  Seigneur de Floranges.  Three generations of his ancestry are confirmed by the following document: “Felippe sires de Florenges...et Lucie ma femme” confirmed the donation of harvest to Justemont, made by “mes sires Robers sires de Florehenges li ainez mon peire” [=Robert [I]] and by “messires Felippes mes ainez” [=Philippe [I]] both previously confirmed by “li sires Robers mes peres” [=Robert [II]], by charter dated Nov 1253[705]: Poull transcribes “li ainez” in this document as “li aiuez” [presumably indicating grandfather][706].  Poull records other documents dated 22 Sep 1253, 29 Mar 1261, Aug 1261, 29 Aug 1261, 8 Jul 1264, 25 Jul 1265, Feb 1266, Feb 1269, 15 Jul 1274, and 8 Oct 1277 in which he was named[707].  He died before 12 Dec 1283 when his wife is named as his widow.  m (before Nov 1253) LUCIE, daughter of --- (-after 12 Dec 1283).  She was named in her husband’s Nov 1253 charter quoted above.  Poull notes her presence as a widow with her son 12 Dec 1283 (see below), adding that she “est sans doute la fille du sire de Rodemack, si l’on tient compte du nom qu’ils donnent à leur fils aîné[708], although presumably the name Gilles is also found in other local noble families.  Philippe [III] & his wife had three children: 

a)         GILLES de Floranges (-[21 Jun 1306/20 Mar 1312]).  Seigneur de Floranges.  Henri [VI] Comte de Luxembourg noted that “Gilles fils de feu Philippe seigneur de Florenges”, with the consent of “Liaze sa femme et de Lucie dame de Florenges sa mére”, had exchanged property with “Nicolas fils de feu Stevenin dit Romour de Thionville” by charter dated 12 Dec 1283[709].  “Colars sires d’Annerey, Gilles escuiers sires de Florehenges” assigned revenue “dou terrage de Bettenberch” to “Jofroit de Meysenbourch...” by charter dated 26 Jun 1294, sealed by “Sohiers sires de Bourxeit[710].  He may have died after 21 Jun 1306 when he is named in the charter cited below as father of Robert [III], but not as deceased (in contrast to others named in the document), but before 20 Mar 1311 (O.S.) when he is not so named.  Gilles is named as deceased in the 30 Jan 1312 (O.S.) charter of his son (see below)  m LISE, daughter of ---.  Henri [VI] Comte de Luxembourg noted that “Gilles fils de feu Philippe seigneur de Florenges”, with the consent of “Liaze sa femme et de Lucie dame de Florenges sa mére”, had exchanged property with “Nicolas fils de feu Stevenin dit Romour de Thionville” by charter dated 12 Dec 1283[711].  Gilles & his wife had [two] children: 

i)          ROBERT [III] de Floranges (-before 12 Jun 1323).  “Sire Nicole d’Ennery et Jean, son frère, chevaliers, Marguerite et Aude, leurs femmes ; Colin, fils dudit Nicole ; Boémond, fils dudit Jean et Robert, fils de sire Gilon de Florehange” consented to “Maiheu Hesson et Colignon Cuneman, citains de Metz” holding “en gage” certain property by charter dated 19 Nov 1302[712]

-         see below

ii)         [JEAN de Florange (-after 15 Oct 1324).  Poull suggests his parentage, noting a bull of Pope John XXII dated 15 Oct 1324 in which he was named as archdeacon of Strasbourg[713].] 

b)         ANSEAU [Ancillon] de Floranges (-[2 Apr 1305/May 1309]).  Poull cites charters dated 15 Jul 1303, Jul 1304, and 2 Apr 1305 in which he was named[714].  He is named as deceased in the May 1309 charter of his sister Agnes, cited below.  m JEANNE de Noviant, daughter of JEAN Seigneur de Noviant & his wife --- .  Poull records her parentage and marriage, noting the dispute with her brothers which followed her husband’s sale of Noviant castle to Pierre de Bar Seigneur de Pierrefort 15 Jul 1303[715]

c)         AGNES de Floranges (-after May 1309)Agnes declared having transferred les biens qui lui sont revenus lors du partage de l’héritage de feu Ancillon de Florange écuyer son frère” to “son cousin Robert de Florange, fils de feu Gilles de Florange, chevalier” by charter dated May 1309[716]m GUY de Passavant, son of GUICHARD Seigneur de Passavant & his first wife Odoarde --- (-[Dec 1290/24 Mar 1294]). 

2.         COLARD [Nicolas?] de Floranges (-after 8 Mar 1268).  Seigneur d’Ennery.  Poull records his parentage noting that he was named in charters with his brother Philippe from Jul 1256, received “Ennery” as his share of their parents’ succession, and records documents dated 29 Mar 1263, 23 Aug 1263, 16 Dec 1263, 8 Jul 1264, 25 Jul 1265, and 8 Mar 1268 in which he was named[717]

-        SEIGNEURS d’ENNERY[718]

3.         [HAIBLE de Florange (-after Oct 1285).  Poull suggests her parentage “vers cette époque” and was probably buried at Justemont, noting the presence of “Haible de Boinville de Florehenges née” at “[le] célèbre tournoi de Chauvency” in Oct 1285[719]m JACQUES de Briey Seigneur de Boinville, son of JEAN de Briey & his wife ---. 

 

 

It should be noted that Robert [III] and his son Philippe [III] are not named “Seigneur de Floranges” in the documents cited below.  It has not been ascertained whether this is a significant omission, especially as Philippe [IV] is so named. 

 

ROBERT [III] de Floranges, son of GILLES Seigneur de Floranges & his wife Lise --- (-before 12 Jun 1323).  “Sire Nicole d’Ennery et Jean, son frère, chevaliers, Marguerite et Aude, leurs femmes ; Colin, fils dudit Nicole ; Boémond, fils dudit Jean et Robert, fils de sire Gilon de Florehange” consented to “Maiheu Hesson et Colignon Cuneman, citains de Metz” holding en gage certain property by charter dated 19 Nov 1302[720].  “Robert, fils de Gillon de Florehenges, chevalier” consented to “Jean d’Ennery chevalier, fils de feu Collart, et Colin, fils de feu Nicolle d’Ennery” pledging certain assets to guarantee payment of a debit owed to “Jacomin de Pargney, fils de feu Symonin” by charter dated 21 Jun 1306[721].  “...Robert de Florange écuyer” is named among the guarantors in a charter dated 20 Mar 1311 (O.S.) under which “Isanbairs de Forpach écuyer époux de dame Ude d’Ennery, en sa qualité de tuteur des d’Ennery” confirmed a sale made by “sire Maheu Hesson et sire Jacke de Pairgney chevaliers[722].  “Roubert écuyer, fils de feu Gilon de Florehenges” confirmed his consent to “Maheu Hesson et Colignon Cuneman citains de Metz” holding property “en gage de Nicolle et de Jehan d’Ennery, frères, l’héritage d’Ennery“ (see charter dated 19 Nov 1302) by charter dated 30 Jan 1312 (O.S.)[723].  Poull cites other charters dated 2 Apr 1305 and 13 Jun 1312 in which Robert was named[724].  He is named as deceased in the 12 Jun 1323 charter cited below under his son Philippe [III]. 

m HELOISE, daughter of ---.  Calmet says that Robert [III] married “Helvis” (no source cited), but then in a second sentence in the same paragraph says, confusingly, that “il avoit épousé Diane de la Marche dont il n’eut aucun enfant[725].  Poull ignores this supposed earlier marriage. 

Robert [III] & his wife had one child: 

1.         PHILIPPE [III] de Floranges (-[22 Nov 1345/Jul 1346]).  Jean King of Bohemia, Comte de Luxembourg confirmed that “Philippe de Florange, fils de feu Robert” had received the homage of “Thiébaut de Heu, citain de Metz” for property he had acquired from “Jehan et de Robert, fils de feu Nicolle d’Ennery“ by charter dated 12 Jun 1323[726].  Poull cites other sources dated from 1334, 1336, 20 Jun 1336, and 21/22 Nov 1345 in which Philippe [III] was named[727].  He presumably died before 4 Jul 1346, the date of his son’s charters cited below.  m firstly ERMENGARDE von Hunolstein, daughter of ---.  Poull records her family origin and marriage (no source cited)[728]m secondly ([1335/36?] Papal dispensation 30 Jul 1337) BEATRIX de Grandpré, daughter of SIMON Seigneur de Grandpré & his wife ---.  Poull records her parentage and marriage, citing the dispensation of Pope Benedict XII which refers to “les évènements qui se sont déroulés à Verdun et dans la région à partir de 1335” [suggesting that the dispensation was retrospective][729].  Neither this person, nor her supposed father, has been traced in the Grandpré family (see the document CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY-PORCIEN, RETHEL, GRANDPRE).  The reliability of the information is unknown.  Philippe [III] & his first wife had [two] children: 

a)         PHILIPPE [IV] de Florenges (-[2 Feb 1370/2 Apr 1375]).  Seigneur de Floranges.  “Philippe sr de Florehenges, chevalier” confirmed a sale of property made by his vassals “Guerairs de Pannehouze chevalier et Anel de Mainsequienne (Menskirch) sa femme” by charter dated 4 Jul 1346[730].  “Philippe sire de Florehenge, chevalier” declared that he would consent to the sale of an inheritance by “Jeannette et de Marguerite filles de feu Jean de Mainsequierke” to “Willemin de Heu, citasin de Metz” by charter dated 4 Jul 1346[731].  “Philippe sr de Florehenges, chevalier et Ailiz de Septfontenne sa femme” declared that they would consent to any sale by “Willame de Heu chevalier, citain de Metz” of “de biens dépendants de la seigneurie d’Ennerey” by charter dated 25 Feb 1355 (O.S.)[732].  Philippe [IV] was named in other charters dated 1358, 8 Apr 1360 (six), 7 Jan 1364 (O.S.), 25 Nov 1363, 20 Jan 1365 (O.S.), and 30 Nov 1367[733].  Philippe was presumably still alive 2 Feb 1370, the date of the charter of his son Jean cited below.  He was recorded as deceased in the 2 Apr 1375 charter of his son Robert cited below.  m (before 25 Feb 1356) ALIX de Septfontaines, daughter of --- (-after 2 Apr 1375).  “Philippe sr de Florehenges, chevalier et Ailiz de Septfontenne sa femme” declared that they would consent to any sale by “Willame de Heu chevalier, citain de Metz” of “de biens dépendants de la seigneurie d’Ennerey” by charter dated 25 Feb 1355 (O.S.)[734].  “Rouperel sr de Florenge, fils de feu Philippe” declared that “Willame de Heu chevalier, échevin et aman Metz” had taken “en fief de lui et de dame Aleis de Septfontaines, sa mère, les biens d’Ennery” by charter dated 2 Apr 1375[735].  Philippe [IV] & his wife had children: 

i)          ROBERT [IV] de Floranges (-[1 Jul 1409/1420])Seigneur de Floranges.  “Rouperel sr de Florenge, fils de feu Philippe” declared that “Willame de Heu chevalier, échevin et aman Metz” had taken “en fief de lui et de dame Aleis de Septfontaines, sa mère, les biens d’Ennery” by charter dated 2 Apr 1375[736].  “...Ruprecht seigneur de Florchingen...” witnessed the charter dated 10 Nov 1394 which records an agreement between “Jean sr de Brandenbourg et Aleyt sa femme” and “Henri Beyer de Boppart chevalier et Grete sa femme, tous seigneurs et dames de Meisenburch” rgarding the succession of their wives[737].  “Robert seigneur de Florhenges” received the homage of “Colignon de Heu, fils de feu Nicole, chevalier” for his property “au lieu d’Ennery, fief de Florange” by charter dated 16 May 1402[738].  Poull records other charters dated 15 Dec 1385, 23 May 1405, and 1 Jul 1409 in which he was named[739]m DIANE de la Marck, daughter of ---.  Poull records her family origin and marriage (no source cited)[740].  She has not been identified in the Mark family (see the document FRANCONIA LOWER RHINE). 

ii)         JEAN de Floranges (-after 2 Feb 1370).  A charter dated 2 Feb 1370 (O.S.?) records that “Der Junker Johann von Flörchingen” declared having come of age and receiving revenue “auf ihren Liegenschaften in Dynswych bei Flörchingen” from his parents by charter dated 2 Feb 1370[741].  Poull suggests his parentage but, presumably, misunderstanding Müsebeck’s summary of this charter, indicates that “il disparaît au cours de sa jeunesse, avant 1370[742]

iii)        LISE de Floranges (-after 1420).  Poull records her parentage, marriage, and her husband’s parentage, noting a charter dated 1420 in which she agreed with her nephews the succession of her brother, and names the couple’s two daughters[743]m COLARD de Lenoncourt, son of THIERRY Seigneur de Lenoncourt & his [first wife Agnes du Chastelet/second wife Jeanne de Maxéville-Parroye].

A.      SEIGNEURS d’AMANCE

 

 

Amance is located about 5 kilometres north-west of Nancy, in the present-day French département of Meurthe-et-Moselle, arrondissement Nancy, canton Malzéville. 

 

1.         RENAUD d’Amance .  Calmet says that “on assure” that Mathieu II Duke of Lorraine had two children “Thiébaut Sire de Preny et Renaut Comte d’Amance”, who are not noted by “les généalogistes ordinaires de Lorraine[831].  He cites no sources on which he bases this information. 

 

2.         GEOFFROY d’Amance (-after 1249).  Calmet records “Geoffroi d’Amance” who is named in sources dated 1244, 1245 and 1249[832]

 

3.         WICHART d’Amance (-after 1306).  “Jacques de Bayon Sire de la Fauche” acquired property “à Roseliure” from “Richard d’Amance” by charter dated 1279, noting that Richard was named in “1287 et suivantes[833].  “Vichard (ou peut-être Richard) d’Amance” attested that “les filles du souverain sont habiles à succéder aux états de Lorraine” by charter dated 1306[834]

 

4.         WICHART d’Amance (-after 1351).  Calmet records that “Richard d’Amance chevalier” was named in charters dated 1351, 1386 and 1392[835].  The span between these years suggests that two different persons were involved. 

 

5.         WICHART d’Amance (-after 1392).  Calmet records that “Richard d’Amance chevalier” was named in charters dated 1351, 1386 and 1392[836].  The span between these years suggests that two different persons were involved. 

 

 

1.         WICHART d’Amance (-[1372]).  Quintard notes that Wichart d’Amance died “vers 1372”, without citing any sources which confirm the information[837]m JEANNETTE de Bayon, daughter of JEAN Seigneur de Bayon & his wife Jacquette de Grandson.  Quintard records her parentage and marriage, without citing any sources which confirm the information, as well as noting their descendants[838].  Wichart & his wife had two children: 

a)         JACQUES d’Amance (-after 1399).  Quintard records his parentage without citing any source which confirms the information, although the inheritance of Bayon and Amance by his daughters suggests that it is correct[839].  Calmet records that “Jacob ou Jacques d’Amance chevalier, maréchal de Lorraine” was named in charters dated 1380, 1392, 1395 and 1399[840]m JACQUETTE de Pulligny, daughter of ---.  Calmet records her family origin and marriage, without citing the source which confirms this information[841].  Abbé Martin does not name her in his review of the Pulligny family[842].  Jacques & his wife had two children: 

i)          JACQUELINE [Jacquette] d’Amance (-after 1426).  Calmet records her parentage and marriage, and names the couple’s children “Jacques et Jean de Fénétranges”, citing “un partage fait le 19 septembre 1422” under which “les seigneurs de Fénétranges” received “le château d’Amance...le château et seigneurie de Vaubexi, les villes et ban de Jouxei, de Varmauzey, avec ce que Jacques d’amance possedoit en la seigneurie et château de Bayon[843].  A document records that in 1426 “Thiederich et Henri de Bayer de Boppart et Arnould de Sierck à cause de Lize sa femme sœur dudit Boppart” sued “Henri d’Amance, Henri de Fénétrange à cause de Jacquette sa femme et Jean de Haraucourt comme tuteur de Gérard et Jacob ses fils” claiming “par le décès de Jean de Voivre [Quintard says =Varres]...sa part et château de Bayon et de Vaubexy et ce à la persuasion de Conrad de Boppart évêque de Metz, et en vue du mariage promis entre Jacob d’Haraucourt et Valburge fille de Henri de Boppart[844]m (1400) HEINRICH Herr von Vinstingen, son of --- (-after 1426). 

ii)         CATHERINE d’Amance (-before 1426).  Calmet records her parentage and marriage, names her husband as father of “Jean d’Haraucourt” and the couple’s children “Gerard et Jacques de Haraucourt”, citing “un partage fait le 19 septembre 1422” under which “les seigneurs d’Haraucourt” received “la moitié de la seigneurie de Bayon, la seigneurie et forteresse de Germini...et les villages d’Olchey, Vanne, Mâron, la seigneurie de la Tour en Voivre, les portions de la seigneurie de Ville-sur-Illon...” and others[845].  A document records that in 1426 “Thiederich et Henri de Bayer de Boppart et Arnould de Sierck à cause de Lize sa femme sœur dudit Boppart” sued “Henri d’Amance, Henri de Fénétrange à cause de Jacquette sa femme et Jean de Haraucourt comme tuteur de Gérard et Jacob ses fils” claiming “par le décès de Jean de Voivre [Quintard says =Varres]...sa part et château de Bayon et de Vaubexy et ce à la persuasion de Conrad de Boppart évêque de Metz, et en vue du mariage promis entre Jacob d’Haraucourt et Valburge fille de Henri de Boppart[846].  Quintard shows this couple’s descendants in a table which cites no sources[847]m as his second wife, JEAN de Haraucourt, son of --- (-after 1426). 

b)         HENRI d’Amance (-[1427], bur Bayon).  Quintard records his parentage without citing any source which confirms the information[848].  Calmet records that “Henri d’Amance écuyer, maître d’hôtel du duc de Lorraine” was named in charters dated 1392, 1395 and 1398[849].  An epitaph at “l’église de Bayon en la chapelle des seigneurs de Fénétrange” records the burial of “Henri d’Amance chevalier seigneur de Bayon et baron dudit lieu, ensemble madame Jeanne de Bulgneville, dame de Beney [corrected to “Bexy”, =Ebexy, Vosges, by Quintard] et de Bayon, icelui fondateur de cette chapelle” who died in 1407[850].  Quintard records that Henri founded “une chapelle dite d’Amance” in “la chapelle castrale de Bayon, devenue église paroissiale” in 1412[851].  Quintard records in his genealogical table that Henri died “sans postérité” in 1427[852].  His date of death in the epitaph, recorded by Calmet, was presumably mistranscribed.  m JEANNE de Bauffremont Dame de Ebexy, daughter of HUMBERT de Bauffremont Seigneur de Bulgnéville & his wife --- (-1429, bur Bayon).  Europäische Stammtafeln records her parentage and marriage, noting her death in 1429[853].  The primary source which confirms that this is correct has not been identified.  An epitaph at “l’église de Bayon en la chapelle des seigneurs de Fénétrange” records the burial of “Henri d’Amance chevalier seigneur de Bayon et baron dudit lieu, ensemble madame Jeanne de Bulgneville, dame de Beney [corrected to “Bexy”, =Ebexy, Vosges, by Quintard] et de Bayon, icelui fondateur de cette chapelle” who died in 1407 [date incorrect][854]

i)          --- d’Aspremont ([1370/74]-).  “Gobert sire d’Aspremont fils de Mr Geoffroy d’Aspremont” granted the request made by [her stepfather] “Gilles de Luxembourg Sgr de la Tour” to allow “sa filiastre et nièce, fille de Josse, son frère” to succeed to “la moitié de la succession de feu Mre Jn d’Aspremont leur oncle”, by charter dated 1377, vidimus dated 1382[999].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified. 

e)         HENRI d’Aspremont .  Canon at Cambrai.  “Josse Dapremont écuyer fils de Joffroi seigneur d’Apremont et de Dun” declared that “Henri Daspremont son frère chanoine de Cambray” had granted him “sa terre de Samorey”, previously held by “Gauthier sire de Montil et à Jeanne Daspremont sa femme, leur sœur”, by charter dated 26 Dec 1363 (vidimus dated 20 May 1382)[1000].  

2.         JEAN d’Aspremont (-[22 Mar 1377/1382]).  "Geofroy seigneur d’Aspremont et Iean d’Aspremont son frere enfans de feu Gobert d’Aspremont" granted "le chasteau et ville de Dun" to “Marie de Bar leur mere”, in the presence of “Edouard comte de Bar leur cousin et de Henry evesque de Verdun leur oncle et de monsieur Gobert seigneur de Chaumont leur cousin”, by charter dated 1326[1001].  “Geoffroy et Jn d’Aspremont frères, enfans et héritiers de feu Mre Gobert sire d’Aspremont” partitioned their late father’s succession, in the presence of “Mre H. évêque de Verdun leur oncle, de Mre Geoffroy d’Aspremont Sgr de Lietmanoir chev., de Simon de Chaumont...”, by charter dated [30] Sep 1330[1002].  Seigneur de Conflans: under a further agreement dated 1335 partitioning their parental succession, “Geoffroy sire d’Aspremont” transferred “le château de Conflans, tenu de la Cté de Luxembourg” to “Jn son frère[1003].  “Jn d’Aspremont sire de Forpac” sold his possessions “à Sèchepré, St Bausonne et Frémereville” to “Henri de Bar Sgr de Pierrefort” by charter dated 12 Nov 1370[1004].  “Jn d’Aspremont sire de Forpac et son...cousin Mgr Henri de Bar Sgr de Pierrefort” mortgaged their possessions “ès villes d’Essey et de Maiseris” to “leur...cousin Mre Olry de Fénestranges” by charter dated 22 Mar 1377 (O.S.?)[1005].  He is named as deceased in the 1377/1382 charter cited above, which also suggests that Jean died childless.  It is unclear from Dom Villevieille’s extract whether Jean was deceased at the date of the original charter or the 1382 vidimus.  The 22 Mar 1377 (O.S.?) charter cited above suggests that the latter possibility may be the case. 

 

 

GEOFFROY [V] d’Aspremont, son of GOBERT [VIII] Seigneur d’Aspremont & his wife Isabelle de Jonvelle (-1391).  “Gobert d’Aspremont chev. et Ysabelle de Jonvelle sa femme” sold “leur terre de Jonvelle” to “[le] Duc de Bourgogne” and after their death “leurs enfants et entre autres Geoffroi d’Aspremont” obtained from the Duke letters given “à Talent le 16 mars 1378” ordering the inhabitants of Auxonne to pay what they owed under the said acquisition[1006].  “Gobert d’Aspremont Sgr d’Aspremont” donated “sa baronnie d’Aspremont” to “Joffroy d’Aspremont son fils aîné” by charter dated 16 Jan 1380 (O.S.?)[1007].  A charter dated 1 Aug 1385 records the dispute between “Mre Gobert d’Aspremont et Mre Geoffroy d’Aspremont son fils” and “Mre Jn de Luxembourg” concerning “la terre de Somory”, during the course of which “led.

a)         EDOUARD d’Aspremont (-[1473]).  The Greffe féodal de Mons records that “Gobert d’Aspremont éc.

The primary sources which confirm the precise relationships between the following family groups and the main Aspremont line shown above have not been identified. 

 

1.         JEAN d’Aspremont (-after 25 Apr 1438).  Seigneur de Remenencourt.  “Henri de Pinteville éc. et damoiselle Catherine de Saint Baulsaux sa femme” sold their property “à Marcheville” to “Jn d’Aspremont éc. et à damoiselle Mahault sa femme” by charter dated 2 Mar 1433 (O.S.?)[1017].  “Jn d’Aspremont éc. Sgr de Remenoncourt” took on fief “ce qu’il tenoit de la Sgrie de Conflans” from “Vainchelin Sgr de la Tour et de Conflans bailly de Vitry” by charter dated 25 Apr 1438[1018]m MATHILDE, daughter of ---.  “Henri de Pinteville éc. et damoiselle Catherine de Saint Baulsaux sa femme” sold their property “à Marcheville” to “Jn d’Aspremont éc. et à damoiselle Mahault sa femme” by charter dated 2 Mar 1433 (O.S.?)[1019].  Jean & his wife had one child: 

a)         JACQUES d’Aspremont (-before 1484).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, but his succession to Remenencourt suggests that he was the son of Jean d’Aspreville.  Seigneur de Remenoncourt.  His date of death is indicated in Europäische Stammtafeln[1020]m AGNES de Choiseul, daughter of GUILLAUME de Choiseul & his wife --- (-after 15 Jul 1455).  “Pre de Choiseul chev. Sgr d’Aigremont, Guillaume de St Loup chev. Sgr de Thon, et Dame Jne de Choiseul dite d’Aigremont, sa femme, sœur germaine dudit Sgr Pre, auxquels la Cté de Salmes...étoit échue par le décès des héritiers...de feu Henry Cte de Salmes en Ardennes” donated to “Jac. d’Aspremont éc.

Jacquot” as the children of “Guillaume d’Agremont”, adding that Anne had succeeded to the lands of her brother, an earlier passage naming “Jacquot d’Aspremont” as the husband of Anne[1022]

 

 

1.         THOMAS d’Aspremont (-before 19 Oct 1435).  He is named in the 19 Oct 1435 charter cited below.  Thomas was prresumably related to Jean d’Aspremont Seigneur de Remenencourt, who is named in the 2 Mar 1433 (O.S.) charter cited above which also names Henri de Pinteville who is recorded as deceased in the 19 Oct 1435 charter.  m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Thomas’s wife has not been identified.  Thomas & his wife had one child: 

a)         HELVIS d’Aspremont .  “Jn de Neyvoz” sold “les héritages assis à Pinteville...qui lui étoient échus par la mort de feu Henri de Pinteville éc., du côté et ligne de Dame Héluy d’Aspremont sa mère fille de feu Thomas d’Aspremont éc.” by charter dated 19 Oct 1435[1023]m --- de Neyvoz, son of ---. 

 

 

 

C.      SEIGNEURS de BAUFFREMONT

 

 

The castle of Bauffremont was located about 9 kilometres south-west of Nancy, in the duchy of Upper Lotharingia, later the duchy of Lorraine.  The reliability of the reconstruction of the 12th/13th century generations of the Bauffremont family is doubtful because of indications that documents around which it is based were falsified.  Léopold Delisle, in 1890, cast serious doubt on the authenticity of a charter dated 16 Mar 1218 under which Friedrich II King of Germany supposedly confirmed the castle of Bauffremont to Liébaud [III] de Bauffremont.  He raised difficulties with the language of the document whose wording, he noted, was in part copied from another charter of the same date.  He also published a letter dated 2 Jun 1758 from L’abbé Guillaume (author of the Histoire des sires de Salins published in 1757/58) to Louis Prince de Bauffremont attaching the charter, and suggested that Guillaume falsified the document to flatter the prince who was his patron.  Delisle went further.  He indicated the dubious language of the charter dated Mar 1271 (which names Liébaud [IV] de Bauffremont) and the manuscript dated to [1180] which records the family of Hugues [II], both of which are quoted below in this section, and suggested that these documents together with the 16 Mar 1218 charter formed part of a series of falsifications[1024].  Delisle’s arguments are convincing, and all references to these three documents are placed in square brackets below to highlight that the extracts quoted should be treated with caution.  It is not known whether other documents quoted below may also have formed part of the same series of falsifications.  It should be noted that the reconstruction of the early generations of the Bauffremont family included in Europäische Stammtafeln includes many inaccuracies, as confirmed by the primary sources which are quoted below[1025]

 

 

1.         [EUDES [Odon] de Bauffremont (-after 25 Dec 1046).  Eudes/Odon is named only in the following charter: Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the privileges of “castrum de Bafrimont” to “Libaldus de Baffrimont et uxor eius Petronilla filia comitis de Dasburg et Hugo filius eius”, just as "predecessor noster Henricus secundus imperator" granted to “fidelis sui Odonis”, by charter dated 14 Nov 1157, transcribed into a charter dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1026].  As discussed under Liébaud [II], this charter is dubious.  The existence of Eudes/Odon de Bauffremont is far from certain.] 

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         LIEBAUD [I] de Bauffremont (-after 1115).  [Seigneur de Bauffremont].  Courcelles states that “Liébaud Ier sire de Bauffremont chevalier” consented to the donation made by “Milon de Bauffremont chevalier son frère” to the abbey of Saint-Evre (near Château-Salins), confirmed by Renaud Bishop of Toul by charter dated 1110 (no citation reference)[1027].  A charter dated 1115 records the settlement by Riquin Bishop of Toul of a dispute between the abbey of Saint-Michel and “Leobaldi parrechiani nostri”, who had unlawfully taken land “Berfredi montis confinio adjacentem ecclesie Sancti Michaelis” from the abbey which had been donated by “matrona...Elysabeth”, witnessed by “Guido socer Leobaldi cum fratre suo Galtero filioque suo...[1028].  Assuming that this charter refers to Liébaud [I] de Bauffremont (which appears probable considering the location of the property which was disputed), he was not “seigneur” de Bauffremont at that time.  m (before 1115) ---, daughter of GUY & his wife ---.  Her father’s name is confirmed by the charter dated 1115 which records the settlement of a dispute involving “Leobaldi parrechiani nostri” who had unlawfully taken land “Berfredi montis confinio adjacentem ecclesie Sancti Michaelis”, witnessed by “Guido socer Leobaldi cum fratre suo Galtero filioque suo...[1029]

2.         MILON de Bauffremont (-after 1110).  Courcelles states that “Liébaud Ier sire de Bauffremont chevalier” consented to the donation made by “Milon de Bauffremont chevalier son frère” to the abbey of Saint-Evre (near Château-Salins), confirmed by Renaud Bishop of Toul by charter dated 1110 (no citation reference)[1030]

 

 

1.         HUGUES [I] de Bauffremont[Seigneur de Bauffremont].  Courcelles names “Hugues I” as successor of “Liébaud I [de Bauffremont]” and predecessor of Liébaud [II] but cites no primary source which confirms his existence[1031]Europäische Stammtafeln refers to two early individuals named Hugues: “comes Hugo de Baufrimont (Bafroyment) 18 Oct 1092” and “Hugues I de Bauffremont knight 1103”, without giving any indication of the sources to which these dates refer[1032].  Concerning the former, no other indication has been found that the early generations of the Bauffremont family were awarded or otherwise used the comital title, so it seems unlikely to be accurate.  Concerning the latter, Europäische Stammtafeln says that he was the father of “Liébaud I, Milon 1110, Gobert 1115, Henry 1115, Imarus 1115, Beliarde wife of Bancelin (Vancelin) de Châtenois, Flandine, Rothilde”.  The person “Liébaud I” incorporates the information shown in the present document under Liébaud [I] and Liébaud [II], the chronology suggesting that there were two different individuals named Liébaud.  Milon is named as brother of Liébaud [I] (see above), and Biliharde/Flandine (the same person), Rohilde, and maybe Mathilde, have been identified as siblings of Liébaud [II] (see below).  No reference has been found to the source dated 1115 which names Gobert, Henri and Imar.  No reference has been found to any source which confirms that Hugues [I] was the father of any of these individuals. 

 

 

[Four siblings:]

1.         LIEBAUD [II] de Bauffremont (-[14 Nov 1157/1168]).  The chronology of the Bauffremont family suggests that Liébaud [II] was probably a different person from Liébaud [I], although this is not beyond all doubt.  He is named in the 1181 charter, quoted below under his sons, no doubts about which have been noted.  Liébaud [II] probably did therefore exist, despite the problems associated with 1157 document in which he is named as discussed below.  [Seigneur de Bauffremont].  [Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the privileges of “castrum de Bafrimont” to “Libaldus de Baffrimont et uxor eius Petronilla filia comitis de Dasburg et Hugo filius eius”, just as "predecessor noster Henricus secundus imperator" granted to “fidelis sui Odonis”, by charter dated 14 Nov 1157, reproduced by vidimus dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1033].  There are many aspects of this charter which are unsatisfactory.  The drafting of the document is unusually wordy, and the reference in the text to the grantee’s wife and son is unusual (especially specifying his wife’s parentage) within the context of the rest of the charter.  In addition, it is clear from the charter dated 7 Jul 1181 quoted below that Hugues [II] de Bauffremont was the third son of Liébaud [II]: if any child was specified in 1157, it should have been Liébaud’s oldest son Pierre (who did survive his father as is clear from the same 1181 charter).  The reference to “Heinricus secundus imperator” raises more questions: Heinrich II King of Germany (died 1024) was crowned emperor in 1014, as Emperor Heinrich I.  Heinrich III King of Germany was crowned emperor in 1046 as Emperor Heinrich II.  The rest of the document does not help in identifying which emperor was intended.  The editor of the Documents de Vosges collection suggests that the former is indicated, but only the latter would have been named in charters as “Heinricus secundus imperator”.  In light of the doubts about the authenticity of other early Bauffremont documents, discussed in the introduction to the present chapter, it would not be surprising if the 1157 charter also formed part of the fabricated collection.  If the document is a forgery, the fact that it is included in a vidimus about 200 years later may have been seen by the forger as another way of camouflaging his tracks.  Unless other information comes to light, it is suggested that this document should be considered with caution.]  m [PETRONILLA von Dachsburg, daughter of HUGO [XI] Graf von Dagsburg & his wife Gertrud [van Looz].  Emperor Friedrich I confirmed the privileges of “castrum de Bafrimont” to “Libaldus de Baffrimont et uxor eius Petronilla filia comitis de Dasburg et Hugo filius eius”, just as "predecessor noster Henricus secundus imperator" granted to “fidelis sui Odonis”, by charter dated 14 Nov 1157, reproduced by vidimus dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1034].  As discussed above, this charter is dubious.  No examples of later use of the name Petronilla have been noted in the Bauffremont reconstruction.  It appears unlikely that this person existed.]  Liébaud [II] & his wife had [nine] children: 

a)         PIERRE de Bauffremont .  Pierre Bishop of Toul confirmed the settlement of a dispute between “Hugonem de Beffremont” and Chaumouzey abbey, relating to “partibus alodii de Frowecurt” two thirds of which were donated by “Lebaldo patri ipsius Hugonis et Bilihardi que Flandina dicta fuit et Rohildi sororibus ipsius Lebaldi”, while the remaining third donated by “heredes ipsius Lebaldi...Petrum [...mortuo...sine herede corporis sui]...Wihardum et ipsum Hugonem...sorores quoque ipsorum, matrem...Pendeuns et matrem Hugonis de Besenches”, by charter dated 7 Jul 1181[1035]

b)         WIHARD de Bauffremont .  Pierre Bishop of Toul confirmed the settlement of a dispute between “Hugonem de Beffremont” and Chaumouzey abbey, relating to “partibus alodii de Frowecurt” two thirds of which were donated by “Lebaldo patri ipsius Hugonis et Bilihardi que Flandina dicta fuit et Rohildi sororibus ipsius Lebaldi”, while the remaining third donated by “heredes ipsius Lebaldi...Petrum [...mortuo...sine herede corporis sui]...Wihardum et ipsum Hugonem...sorores quoque ipsorum, matrem...Pendeuns et matrem Hugonis de Besenches”, by charter dated 7 Jul 1181[1036]

LIEBAUD [III] de Bauffremont, son of HUGUES [II] Seigneur de Bauffremont & his wife Hawide de Bourlémont (-after 1226)Seigneur de BauffremontHenri Comte de Bar requested reimbursement of sums lent by Sicilians to “domino Hugoni de Boffremonte, domino Letbaldo de Boffremonte” and others by charter dated Dec 1190[1066][Libaldus dominus de Bofremont filius quondam domini Hugonis” acknowledged having received “villam...et...castrum...Chales” in fee from Thibaut Comte de Bar, with the consent of “Petrus filius meus et Isabella de Rinel uxor mea”, by charter dated Jun 1202, reproduced by vidimus dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1067].  As in the cases of the charters dated 14 Nov 1157, 14 Sep 1168 and 30 Dec 1182, the common vidimus date raises suspicion regarding this document.]  “...Lebaudus de Beffremonte...” witnessed the charter dated 1203 under which Thibaut Comte de Bar granted privileges to “S. Theobaldum sub Bormonte[1068][Friedrich II King of Germany and Sicily granted protection to “consanguinei nostri Libaldi de Baffroimont” for “castrum suum de Baffroimont”, as granted “olim tempore Hugonis et Libaldi de Baffroimont”, by charter dated 16 Mar 1218[1069].]  The precise family relationship, assuming that this document is genuine (see above), between King Friedrich II and Liébaud [III] has not been ascertained.  Courcelles records that Liébaud was called “nepos de Thibaud de Rougemont vicomte de Besançon” in a donation made by the latter to the priory of Saint-Marcel dated Oct 1222 (no citation reference)[1070]Galterus dominus Risnelli” recorded that “pater meus G. quondam dominus de Risnel” had granted property “apud Dainuile” to “domino Libaudo de Bafroimont” as fiduciaries, by charter dated 1226[1071].  An inscription at Morimond records the burial of “Liebaux sire de Boufraumont et sa femme Isabelle et Isabes leur fille damde d’Aigremont[1072]

m firstly ([1175] or before?) [HEDWIDE], daughter of ---.  Europäische Stammtafeln names “Hadvide v Vaudémont, T v Graf Gerhard II” as Liébaud’s first wife[1073].  The primary source which confirms her name and marriage has not been identified.  Her suggested family origin is presumably based on Poull who suggests that she was Hedwide de Vaudémont, daughter of Gérard [II] Comte de Vaudémont & his first wife Gertrude de Joinville, noting the couple’s marriage “avant 1190[1074].  If it is correct, as also indicated by Europäische Stammtafeln (see below), that the couple’s four children were named in 1181, the marriage must have taken place many years earlier.  In support of his suggestion about her parentage, Poull cites two documents.  Firstly, “Huardus domicellus de Beffroymont et dominus de la Rolleye” [La Rouillie] confirmed donations to Flabémont abbey made by “patre meo Leobaudo” by charter dated Jul 1238, witnessed by “domini de Savilley avunculi mei et domini de Beffroymont fratris mei[1075], indicating in a later passage that “domini de Savilley” was Geoffroy Seigneur de Deuilly[1076].  Poull says that Huard was this couple’s second son but, as noted below, other sources suggest that he was the son of Liébaud [III] by his second wife.  Secondly, Liébaud [IV] Seigneur de Bauffremont asked “son cousin Henri comte de Vaudémont” to seal a charter dated Mar 1262[1077].  Poull names Liébaud [IV] as this couple’s grandson, although other indications suggest that Liébaud [IV]’s father (Pierre [I] Seigneur de Bauffremont) was also Liébaud [III]’s son by his second marriage.  Considering these factors, it is suggested that Poull’s indication of the possible family origin of Liébaud [III]’s first wife should be treated with caution until further source material emerges. 

m secondly ISABELLE de Reynel, daughter of GUYARD Seigneur de Reynel & his wife Emmeline Dame de Gondrecourt.  [Libaldus dominus de Bofremont filius quondam domini Hugonis” acknowledged having received “villam...et...castrum...Chales” in fee from Thibaut Comte de Bar, with the consent of “Petrus filius meus et Isabella de Rinel uxor mea”, by charter dated Jun 1202, reproduced by vidimus dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1078].  As in the cases of the charters dated 14 Nov 1157, 14 Sep 1168 and 30 Dec 1182, the common vidimus date raises suspicion regarding this document.]  Courcelles says that she was “Isabelle née comtesse de Risnel” but does not specify her precise parentage[1079].  An inscription at Morimond records the burial of “Liebaux sire de Boufraumont et sa femme Isabelle et Isabes leur fille damde d’Aigremont[1080].  The charter dated Jul 1238, under which [her son] “Huardus domicellus de Beffroymont et dominus de la Rolleye” [La Rouillie] confirmed donations to Flabémont abbey made by “patre meo Leobaudo”, was witnessed by “domini de Savilley [Sauville] avunculi mei...[1081].  Assuming that “avunculi” in this document indicates maternal uncle, Huard’s mother was the sister of this unnamed Seigneur de Sauville. 

Liébaud [III] & his first wife had four children: 

1.         PIERRE de Bauffremont (-after 1202).  Europäische Stammtafeln names Pierre as the oldest son of Liébaud [III] by his first wife, with the dates 1181 and 1202[1082].  The primary source associated with the former date has not been identified.  The chronology suggests that Liébaud’s known son and successor Pierre [I] (see below) could not have been the same person who was named in 1181.  [Libaldus dominus de Bofremont filius quondam domini Hugonis” acknowledged having received “villam...et...castrum...Chales” in fee from Thibaut Comte de Bar, with the consent of “Petrus filius meus et Isabella de Rinel uxor mea”, by charter dated Jun 1202, reproduced by vidimus dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1083].  As in the cases of the charters dated 14 Nov 1157, 14 Sep 1168 and 30 Dec 1182, the common vidimus date raises suspicion regarding this document.] 

2.         WIHARD de Bauffremont (-after 1181).  Europäische Stammtafeln names Wihard as the second son of Liébaud [III] by his first wife, with the date 1181[1084].  The primary source associated with this date has not been identified. 

3.         two daughters (-after 1181).  Europäische Stammtafeln records two unnamed daughters of Liébaud [III] by his first wife, with the date 1181[1085].  The primary source associated with this date has not been identified.  

Liébaud [III] & his second wife had four children (Europäische Stammtafeln records their parentage[1086].  The primary sources which confirm that they were born from their father’s second marriage have not been identified, except in the case of the daughter Isabelle as shown below.  The chronology of the two older sons suggests that they would have been born later than 1181, when Liébaud’s two sons by his first wife were named in 1181 as indicated above.): 

4.         PIERRE [I] de Bauffremont (-[1239/41])Seigneur de BauffremontPetrus de Befromont miles filius quondam domini Libaldi” renounced all disputes with Henri Comte de Bar and did homage for “terra de Loysicao” and “villa...Vallis” except the part which he had granted to “Willelmo de Mariniaco quando ei filiam meam Yolant maritavi”, by charter dated 19 Oct 1236, reproduced by vidimus dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1087].  This charter includes the same vidimus date as the charters dated 14 Nov 1157, 14 Sep 1168, 30 Dec 1182 and Jun 1202 quoted above, and concerning which suspicions are raised regarding their authenticity.  There appears to be nothing in the text of this document dated 19 Oct 1236 to raise suspicion, although the date of the document is inconsistent with the contract for the marraige of Pierre’s daughter Yolande which is dated 1241 (see below).  One possibility is that the vidimus paragraph in this document was used by the forger of the other documents as the pattern which he copied.  Courcelles records that Pierre be Bauffremont granted land “à Colviler et à Neuviler” to “Pierre du Tilleul damoiseau”, with the consent of “Agnès sa femme, de Liébaud, d’Huon ou Huard, et de ses autres enfants”, by charter dated 1236 (no citation reference)[1088].  “Huardus domicellus de Beffroymont et dominus de la Rolleye” [La Rouillie] confirmed donations to Flabémont abbey made by “patre meo Leobaudo” by charter dated Jul 1238, witnessed by “domini de Savilley avunculi mei et domini de Beffroymont fratris mei[1089]m as her first husband, AGNES de Vergy, daughter of GUILLAUME de Vergy Seigneur de Mirebeau, d’Autrey et de Champlitte & his wife Clémence de Fouvent.  Courcelles records her parentage but provides no primary source reference which confirmst the information[1090].  Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1256 quoted below.  Courcelles records that Pierre be Bauffremont granted land “à Colviler et à Neuviler” to “Pierre du Tilleul damoiseau”, with the consent of “Agnès sa femme, de Liébaud, d’Huon ou Huard, et de ses autres enfants”, by charter dated 1236 (no citation reference)[1091]She married secondly (before 1254) as his second wife, Ulric [II] Comte de FerretteAgnès contesse de Ferretes” notified the agreement brokered by “me sires Huars de Baffroiment” between Mureau and “me fis Liebaus” concerning “de dimes de Gendrevile et de Aiwruile...” by charter dated 1254[1092].  “Agnes contesse de Ferrette et dame de Biaffroymont et…Liebauz ses fiz” reached agreement with the abbey of Cherlieu by charter dated 1256 which names "nostre maire…Clemence dame de Fouvanz et Henry de Vergy mon frère senechaul de Borgoigne"[1093].  “Agnès contesse de Ferrotes” confirmed donations made to Clairfontaine by “Liebauz mes fiz sires de Befroimont” by charter dated 1261[1094].  Pierre [I] & his wife had six children: 

a)         YOLANDE de BauffremontAlidis...ducissa mater ducis Burgundiæ” recorded that “Clementia domina de Fonuanz et de Mirebello” granted money to “Vuillelmo filio Vuillelmi domini de Marigné pro maritagio Hyolandis filiæ dominæ de Braframmont”, naming “Hynricus filius suus et dominus Hugo miles de Belloloco et Hugo de Sedeloco bailliuus de Chanlite” as fiduciaries, by charter dated 1241[1095].  The charter confirms that Yolande was born from her father’s marriage to Agnes de Vergy.  Considering the likely birth dates of the children of Pierre [I], Yolande must have been a child at the date of this charter.  Even if this is correct, the date suggests that Yolande was one of her parents’ older children.  Petrus de Befromont miles filius quondam domini Libaldi” renounced all disputes with Henri Comte de Bar and did homage for “terra de Loysicao” and “villa...Vallis” except the part which he had granted to “Willelmo de Mariniaco quando ei filiam meam Yolant maritavi”, by charter dated 19 Oct 1236, reproduced by vidimus dated 19 Jun 1360 at the request of “domini Huonis de Beffromont militis[1096].  As noted above, the date of this charter is inconsistent with the contract for Yolande’s marriage being signed in 1241.  m (contract 1241) GUILLAUME de Marigny, son of GUILLAUME de Marigny & his wife ---. 

b)         LIEBAUD [IV] de Bauffremont (-Arras [late] 1303).  Courcelles records that Pierre be Bauffremont granted land “à Colviler et à Neuviler” to “Pierre du Tilleul damoiseau”, with the consent of “Agnès sa femme, de Liébaud, d’Huon ou Huard, et de ses autres enfants”, by charter dated 1236 (no citation reference)[1097].  Liébaud’s birth from his father’s marriage with Agnes de Vergy is confirmed by the 1254 charter cited above under his mother.  Seigneur de Bauffremont

c)         GAUTHIER de Bauffremont .  Canon at Toul.  He was proposed as Bishop of Toul in 1271.  Courcelles provides some further background[1098].  [“Libaldus dominus de Biaffroimont miles filius Agnetis quondam comitisse Ferretensis” donated property to Toul, with the consent of "uxoris mee M. de Caseolo et Galteri fratris mei electi Tullensis et Hugonis et Petri fratrum meorum", for the soul of “Petri patris mei quondam domini de Biaffroimont”, by charter dated Mar 1271[1099].] 

d)         HUARD [Huon/Hugues] de Bauffremont .  Courcelles records that Pierre be Bauffremont granted land “à Colviler et à Neuviler” to “Pierre du Tilleul damoiseau”, with the consent of “Agnès sa femme, de Liébaud, d’Huon ou Huard, et de ses autres enfants”, by charter dated 1236 (no citation reference)[1100].  [“Libaldus dominus de Biaffroimont miles filius Agnetis quondam comitisse Ferretensis” donated property to Toul, with the consent of "uxoris mee M. de Caseolo et Galteri fratris mei electi Tullensis et Hugonis et Petri fratrum meorum", for the soul of “Petri patris mei quondam domini de Biaffroimont”, by charter dated Mar 1271[1101].] 

e)         PIERRE de Bauffremont (-after [10] Jan 1303).  [“Libaldus dominus de Biaffroimont miles filius Agnetis quondam comitisse Ferretensis” donated property to Toul, with the consent of "uxoris mee M. de Caseolo et Galteri fratris mei electi Tullensis et Hugonis et Petri fratrum meorum", for the soul of “Petri patris mei quondam domini de Biaffroimont”, by charter dated Mar 1271[1102].]  Courcelles says, in relation to Pierre be Bauffremont, that “on conjecture qu’il avait eu pour femme une héritière de la maison de Bulgnéville et qu’il eut...enfants” and lists some of his supposed descendants[1103].  Courcelles presumably confuses Pierre with his first cousin Pierre who is named below.  same person as...?  PIERRE de Bauffremont (-after 14 Mar 1290).  Rudolf King of Germany acknowledged having received “Petrus abbas Luthrensis [Lure] princeps noster” as “imperii principem” by charter dated 14 Mar 1290[1104]

f)          AGNES de Bauffremont (-after 6 Dec 1314)Europäische Stammtafeln records her parentage and two marriages, naming her first husband “Jean de Passavant 1250/88, 1294†”[1105].  Abbé Martin names as her first husband “Jean sire de Monthureux-le-Sec chevalier” by whom she had “trois enfants, Jean, Simonin et Marie de Monthureux” (no sources cited)[1106].  The primary sources which confirm her parentage and first marriage have not been identified.  Abbé Martin records a charter dated 6 Dec 1314 under which [her son] Gérard [II] de Pulligny declared that “Messire Jehan chevalier sire de Pulligny son père” had bequeathed property to Clairlieu church for his burial there and anniversary, with the consent of “Agnès de Baffroyment dame de Pulligny sa mère, de Liébaud son frère et d’Elissant sa sœur[1107]m firstly as his second wife, JEAN de Passavant Seigneur de Thuillières et de Monthureux, son of SIMON Seigneur de Passavant & his wife --- (-[1288/94]).  m secondly JEAN [II] Seigneur de Pulligny, son of --- (-before 1308).  Abbé Martin does not name his parents in his review of the Pulligny family[1108]

7.         ISABELLE de Bauffremont (-after 1245, bur Morimond)An inscription at Morimond records the burial of “Liebaux sire de Boufraumont et sa femme Isabelle et Isabes leur fille damde d’Aigremont[1113]m [before 1230]) RENIER [III] Seigneur d’Aigremont, son of --- ([1200]-[1245]). 

 

 

The parentage of Jean de Bauffremont has not been confirmed.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, he was the son of Liébaud [III] Seigneur de Bauffremont by his second wife Isabelle de Reynel[1114].  Considering the extensive falsifications noted in the introduction to Bauffremont above, it is prudent to await the emergence of reliable primary sources before speculating on family connections such as these. 

 

1.         JEAN de Bauffremont (-before 1308).  Seigneur de Removille.  m ---.  The name of Jean's wife is not known.  Jean & his wife had two children: 

a)         PIERRE de Bauffremont (-1321).  Seigneur de Removille.  Ferry Duke of Lorraine acknowledged that “messire Pierre de Beffroimont sire de Remonville chevalier” had acquired “une Remonville” from “Liebauz signour de Beffroimont chevalier” and what “Guillaume ses frere tient de luy en Aumaise”, as held by “Jehan ses père”, by charter dated 1308[1115].  Poull cites sources dated between “1281 à sa disparition survenue en 1321”, adding that he was “un personage de légende” who took part in the 1294 joust in which he mortally wounded the Duke of Brabant, and also in “l’expédition de Sicile[1116]m MARGUERITE d’Autrey, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Pierre’s wife has not been identified.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, she was “Marguerite d’Autrey”[1117].  Pierre & his wife had one child: 

i)          LAURE de Bauffremont (-bur Flabémont)Europäische Stammtafeln shows her parentage and marriage[1118].  Calmet says that Henri married “Dame Lore”, without specifying her family origin, noting that the couple donated a mill to Flabémont in Jan 1318 (O.S.?)[1119].  Her parentage is indicated by the charters dated 6 Mar 1345 (O.S.) and 3 Feb 1348 (O.S.) under which her husband and sona Colin and Simon swore homage to the Seigneur de Bauffremont for Removille.  She died before 1341 when her son Jean was assessed for her fief (see below).  m (before Jan 1319) HENRI Seigneur de Deuilly, son of COLIN Seigneur de Deuilly & his wife Alix --- (-2 Mar 1348, bur Flabémont). 

b)         GUILLAUME de Bauffremont .  Ferry Duke of Lorraine acknowledged that “messire Pierre de Beffroimont sire de Remonville chevalier” had acquired “une Remonville” from “Liebauz signour de Beffroimont chevalier” and what “Guillaume ses frere tient de luy en Aumaise”, as held by “Jehan ses père”, by charter dated 1308[1120]

 

 

LIEBAUD [IV] de Bauffremont, son of PIERRE [I] Seigneur de Bauffremont & his wife Agnes de Vergy (-Arras [late] 1303).  Courcelles records that Pierre be Bauffremont granted land “à Colviler et à Neuviler” to “Pierre du Tilleul damoiseau”, with the consent of “Agnès sa femme, de Liébaud, d’Huon ou Huard, et de ses autres enfants”, by charter dated 1236 (no citation reference)[1121].  Liébaud’s birth from his father’s marriage with Agnes de Vergy is confirmed by the 1254 charter cited below.  Seigneur de BauffremontAgnès contesse de Ferretes” notified the agreement brokered by “me sires Huars de Baffroiment” between Mureau and “me fis Liebaus” concerning “de dimes de Gendrevile et de Aiwruile...” by charter dated 1254[1122].  “Hugo de Biafromont miles” donated property “que habeo...jure hereditario...in villis de Travilez, de Rore et de Sircourt” to “Libado de Biafromont domicello...nepotis mei”, as held by “domino Petro de Biaffromont fratre meo, patre quondam dicti Libadi”, with the consent of “Johanna de Aspero-Monte uxor mea”, by charter dated Oct 1256 (copied into a document dated 1308)[1123].  “Agnes contesse de Ferrette et dame de Biaffroymont et…Liebauz ses fiz” reached agreement with the abbey of Cherlieu by charter dated 1256 which names "nostre maire…Clemence dame de Fouvanz et Henry de Vergy mon frère senechaul de Borgoigne"[1124].  The involvement of his mother in this document suggests that Liébaud [IV] was still a minor at that date.  [“Libaldus dominus de Biaffroimont miles filius Agnetis quondam comitisse Ferretensis” donated property to Toul, with the consent of "uxoris mee M. de Caseolo et Galteri fratris mei electi Tullensis et Hugonis et Petri fratrum meorum", for the soul of “Petri patris mei quondam domini de Biaffroimont”, by charter dated Mar 1271[1125].]  “Liebaus sires de Beffroiment” swore homage to Thibaut Comte de Bar for “Ruppes”, with the consent of “Adelinne ma femme dame de Beffroimont”, and “Adelinne dame de Beffroimont, de cui heritaige ladicte Ruppes...muevent” also swore homage, dated Mar 1280, included in a vidimus dated 12 Aug 1377[1126].  “Liebaus sire de Beffroimont” acknowledged holding “une pièce de boix...entre Relanges et Ligneville” and another which “mes fis Huars ai acquestei” from Ferry Duke of Lorraine by charter dated 13 Apr 1296[1127].  Petit says that Liébaud died “dans une chevauchée en Flandre, vers le mois d’octobre 1302, et en janvier suivant ses enfants firent le partage de ses biens” (no sources cited)[1128].  An anonymous chronicle of Flanders records that “sire Liebaut de Baufremont, sire Hubert de Beaujeu et le sire de Vaucoulour” left Tournay to attack “l’église de le Bassée”, and that “sire Lubault de Baufremont” died at Arras the next day from his wounds, dated to late 1303 from the context[1129]

[m firstly MARGUERITE de Choiseul, daughter of [ROBERT de Choiseul & his wife Isabelle de Rougemont] (-[after Mar 1271]).  Courcelles states that Marguerite, wife of Liébaud [IV] de Bauffremont, was “fille de Robert de Choiseul chevalier sire de Traves, de Scey, de Granville, et d’Isabelle de Rougemont, et petite-fille de Renaud de Choiseul”, that she was “dame de Scey-sur-Saône”, and records that she and her husband were named in a charter dated 1283 (no citation reference)[1130].  If Marguerite was a member of the Choiseul family, the chronology suggests that this parentage may be correct.  [“Libaldus dominus de Biaffroimont miles filius Agnetis quondam comitisse Ferretensis” donated property to Toul, with the consent of "uxoris mee M. de Caseolo et Galteri fratris mei electi Tullensis et Hugonis et Petri fratrum meorum", for the soul of “Petri patris mei quondam domini de Biaffroimont”, by charter dated Mar 1271[1131]].  Bearing in mind the suspicions about this charter dated Mar 1271 (as discussed in the introduction to the present chapter), it is not known whether any of this information is correct or even whether Marguerite ever existed.  If Liébaud did marry Marguerite, she would have been his first wife.  The document dated 10 Jan 1302 quoted below shows that Marguerite was not the mother of Liébaud’s sons Gauthier and Huard.  That document lists the properties divided between Gauthier and his brother, which do not include Scey-sur-Saône.] 

m [secondly] (before Mar 1280) as her second husband, ADELINE d’Epinal, widow of GEOFFROY de Rosières, daughter of GAUTHIER d’Epinal & his wife Hawide --- (-[Feb 1291/10 Jan 1303]).  “Liebaus sires de Beffroiment” swore homage to Thibaut Comte de Bar for “Ruppes”, with the consent of “Adelinne ma femme dame de Beffroimont”, and “Adelinne dame de Beffroimont, de cui heritaige ladicte Ruppes...muevent” also swore homage, dated Mar 1280, included in a vidimus dated 12 Aug 1377[1132].  “Pierres de Beffroyment sires de Bulgenvile et Jehans de Rosières chevalier” notified that “messires Wautiers sires de Beffroymont et messires Huairs ses frères chevalier” agreed the partition of the territories of “mon signour Liebaut signour de Beffroymont lour peire, qui fuit, et de ma dame Adeline sa femme lour meire que fuit” by charter dated [10] Jan 1302 (probably O.S.), which lists all the properties in question[1133].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Liébaud [IV] married secondly “before Mar 1280” “Adeline d’Epinal Dame de Ruppes, widow of Joffroi de Rosières, daughter of Gauthier (d. [Feb 1291/9 Feb 1302])”, who was mother of his son Huard[1134].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  Her first marriage is confirmed by the charter dated Feb 1291 under which Ferry Duke of Lorraine confirmed that “Jehan de Rouzieres chevalier filz Joffrois de Rouzieres” exchanged property with him, naming “Liebault sieur de Beffroymont chevalier et...ma dame Adeline sa femme mère audit Jean” who made commitments[1135].  Petit says that Liébaud married “Adeline dame de Ruppes, veuve de Geofroi de Rosières, fille du chansonnier Gautier d’Epinal” (no source cited) and does not mention his supposed first marriage to Marguerite de Choiseul[1136]

Liébaud [IV] & his [second] wife had children (Europäische Stammtafeln lists six children[1137].  Only those children linked to other families included in Medieval Lands are shown below.  Others will be added after the corresponding primary sources have been identified.): 

1.         GAUTHIER de Bauffremont (-after Jul 1332).  His birth from his father’s [second] marriage is confirmed by the [10] Jan 1302 charter quoted below.  Seigneur de BauffremontPierres de Beffroyment sires de Bulgenvile et Jehans de Rosières chevalier” notified that “messires Wautiers sires de Beffroymont et messires Huairs ses frères chevalier” agreed the partition of the territories of “mon signour Liebaut signour de Beffroymont lour peire, qui fuit, et de ma dame Adeline sa femme lour meire que fuit” by charter dated [10] Jan 1302 (probably O.S.), which lists all the properties in question[1138].  “Oudet de Tilluel ecuyer” surrendered his fief to “Watier chevalier seignour de Boffroyment” by charter dated Jun 1326[1139].  “Vauthiers sires de Beffroymont” declared himself liege of “le conte de Bar” for “Beffroimont, le chastel, la ville...Lambecourt...Gendreville...” by charter dated Jul 1332[1140]m ([1300/05?] or [before 2 May 1313]?) MARGUERITE de Choüe”, daughter of --- (-after 2 May 1315).  “Vauthiers chivaliers sires de Beffroyment” sold “la moities de tous les dismes gros...de la ville d’Orville” to the church of La Mothe, with the consent of “mon madame Marguerite de Choüe [translated as Choiseul by the editor] ma feme”, by charter dated 2 May 1315[1141].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Gauthier married “before 2 May 1313 Marguerite de Crus (heute: Creue, Meuse), 1315[1142], but the chronology of the couple’s descendants suggests an earlier marriage date, say [1300/05?].  Lefebvre indicates that “Vautier sire de Bauffremont aïeul de Philibert” married “Marguerite de Choiseul dame de Scey-sur-Saône” (no citation reference)[1143].  The word “Choüe” would be an unexpected representation of “Choiseul”, which in primary source documentation in French is normally written as today and in Latin is usually “Chosolio” or “Caseoli” (see CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY-SEIGNEURS de CHOISEUL).  Courcelles records a different wife for Gauthier, saying that she was “Jeanne de Scey, fille d’Otton seigneur de Scey en Varias et de N... de Neufchâtel[1144].  His reference to “Scey en Varias” suggests that there may in some transcription have been confusion between Scey-en-Varais (now Scey-Maisières in the département Doubs) and Scey-sur-Saône (now Scey-sur-Saône et Saint-Albin in the département Haute-Saône).  The primary source which confirms Courcelles’s information has not been identified.  Presumably it is not impossible that Jeanne was an earlier or later wife.  Gauthier & his wife had children (Europäische Stammtafeln lists seven children, with two possible additional children[1145].  Only those children linked to other families included in Medieval Lands are shown below.  Others will be added after the corresponding primary sources have been identified.):

c)         CUNEGONDE de Bauffremont .  Abbé Martin records that Simon de Joinville married “Cunégonde de Bauffremont” (no parents stated)[1147]Europäische Stammtafeln records her parentage as shown here[1148], which seems consistent with best estimates of the Bauffremont family chronology.  m SIMON de Joinville Seigneur de Beaupré, son of ANDRE de Joinville Seigneur de Beaupré et de Bonney & his wife Isabelle Dame de Bonney ([1300/05?]-after Jul 1386). 

2.         HUARD de Bauffremont (-[1303/05]).  His birth from his father’s [second] marriage is confirmed by the [10] Jan 1302 charter quoted below.  Liebaus sire de Beffroimont” acknowledged holding “une pièce de boix...entre Relanges et Ligneville” and another which “mes fis Huars ai acquestei” from Ferry Duke of Lorraine by charter dated 13 Apr 1296[1149].  Seigneur de Ruppes.

3.         HEDWIGE de Bauffremont (-after May 1310)Europäische Stammtafeln records her parentage and marriage, dating the marriage to “after 1272” which is anachronistic considering her husband’s suggested date of birth[1150].  The primary source which confirms her precise parentage has not been identified.  She is named in the 1325 marriage contract between Alix, daughter of Dimanche ou Dominique de Salins chevalier seigneur de Marchaut, Pleurre et Saint Martin” and his wife “Isabelle de la Roche dame de Marchaut, fille d’Otton sire de la Roche sur l’Ognon chevalier”, and [her son] “Guillaume d’Oiselet, fils de Jean d’Oiselet chevalier seigneur de Flagey et d’Edvige de Bauffremont”, by contract dated 1325[1151]m JEAN d’Oiselay Seigneur de Flagey, son of --- ([1260/69]-6 May 1313). 

 

 

LIEBAUD [V] de Bauffremont, son of GAUTHIER Seigneur de Bauffremont & his wife Marguerite de “Choüe” ([1300/05?]-after 5 May 1372)Seigneur de Bauffremont.  Henri Comte de Bar assigned income from “notre seneschaussée de La Mothe” to “chevalier messire Liebault de Baffromont” by charter dated Jun 1342[1152].  “Liebaulz signour de Beffroymont chevalier” acknowledged holding “le chastel de Beffroymont, la ville dudit Beffroymont...la ville de Gendreville...” from “le duc de Bar marchis du Pont”, as held by “Waulthiers ses perres”, by charter dated 8 Aug 1364[1153].  Liébaud [V] fought and was captured at the battle of Poitiers in 1356: a charter dated Nov 1364 records that Charles V King of France granted remission to “Liebaut sire de Beffromont en l’empire et de Philebert son filz chevaliers”, noting that the former was captured during the battle of Poitiers[1154]Europäische Stammtafeln records his date of death as shown above[1155]: the primary source which confirms this date has not been identified. 

m firstly (contract 9 May 1317) GUILLEMETTE de Montagu, daughter of [GUILLAUME Seigneur de Montaigu [Burgundy-Capet] & his third wife Marie des Barres] (-before 1320).  Her parentage is indicated by the following document: “Watiers sires de Bafremont chevalier” acknowledged that “mes...filz Liebaz ai pris par mariage noble damisale et saige Willemate suer Odat signor de Montagu” and assigned dower to her by charter dated 9 May 1317[1156].  Guillemette was not named in her supposed father’s Jan 1298 testament, which suggests that, if this parentage is correct, she was born later, maybe posthumously.  The suggested date of the marriage of her husband’s parents shown above, if correct, suggests that the couple were still children in 1317, and that none of Liébaud’s children were born from this marriage. 

m secondly (1320) BEATRICE de Vauvray, daughter of ULRIC de Vauvray Seigneur de Charnay & his wife ---.  Poull indicates that Liébaud [V] married secondly “Béatrice de Vauvray”[1157]Europäische Stammtafeln dates the marriage to 1320 and names her parents as shown above[1158], but the primary sources which confirm this information have not been identified.  If the date is correct, the suggested date of the marriage of her husband’s parents, shown above, suggests that Béatrice may still have been young at that date and that any children which the couple may have had were born several years later.  No information has been found regarding her date of death. 

m thirdly (contract 1343) ISABELLE de Bourlémont Dame de Rorthey, daughter of JEAN de Bourlémont & his second wife Jeanne de Grancey.  “Eudes sires de Grancey chevaliers” agreed with “madame Jeanne de Grancey dame de Bourlemont nostre...suers et messires Liebiauz de Biaufromont chevaliers, genres de nostre dicte suer nostre...niez” on the dower “pour cause dou mariaige de ma dam Isabiaul fille de ma dicte suer et femme dou dit monsoingnour Liebiauz” by charter dated 1343[1159]

Liébaud [V] & his [second/third] wife had two children: 

2.         PHILIBERT de Bauffremont (-31 May 1416).  The date of his marriage suggests that Philibert may have been born from his father’s third marriage: the primary source which confirms that this suggestion is correct has not been identified.  A charter dated Nov 1364 records that Charles V King of France granted remission to “Liebaut sire de Beffromont en l’empire et de Philebert son filz chevaliers”, noting that the former was captured during the battle of Poitiers[1161]Seigneur de Bauffremontm ([1375]) as her second husband, AGNES de Jonvelle Dame de Jonvelle, de Sexfontaines et de Charny, widow of GUILLAUME de Vergy Seigneur de Mirebeau, daughter of PHILIPPE Seigneur de Jonvelle & his wife Guillemette de Charny (-[1408]).  Her parentage and two marriages are confirmed by the following document: a register dated 24 Jul 1389 records that Philibertus dominus de Bouffremonte miles et Agnes de Ioinvilla nunc eius et antea uxor defuncti Guillelmi de Vergeio scutiferi domini Mirebelli” claimed against “Ioannem de Vergeio dominum de Fonuento et Henricum de Boffremonte ad causam eius uxoris”, stating that “defunctus Guillelmus de Vergeio” married “dictam Agnetem” by whom he had “Ioannem de Vergeio et Ionname ipsius Henrici uxorem et Margaretam ab hac luce substractam”, that after Guillaume’s death “prædicta Agnes” in 1375 had “fortalitia de Borbonna, de Soilleyo et de Espernolul...pro dotalitio” and that “dictus Ioannes filius Guillelmi” had by testament dated 27 Jan [1389 from the context] appointed “prædictum de Fonuento pro duobus portionibus et uxorem dicti Philiberti pro tertia parte” as his heirs[1162].  Philibert & his wife had six children:

D.      BAUFFREMONT, SEIGNEURS de BULGNEVILLE

 

 

HUARD de Bauffremont, son of LIEBAUD [III] Seigneur de Bauffremont & his second wife Isabelle de Reynel (-after Oct 1255)Seigneur de La Rouillie [canton de Bulgnéville].  “Huardus domicellus de Beffroymont et dominus de la Rolleye” [La Rouillie] confirmed donations to Flabémont abbey made by “patre meo Leobaudo” by charter dated Jul 1238, witnessed by “domini de Savilley avunculi mei et domini de Beffroymont fratris mei[1206].  Poull indicates that “domini de Savilley” was Geoffroy Seigneur de Deuilly[1207]: if he is correct, the precise family relationship represented by the term “avunculus” has not been ascertained.  Seigneur de Bulgnéville: “Huars de Beffroyment sire de Bulleneigneville” and others founded the town of “Seurauville” by charter dated Oct 1255[1208]

m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Huard’s wife has not been identified.  Europäische Stammtafeln names her “Béatrice de Longwy” (no more details)[1209].  That person has not been identified in the Longwy family (see the document BURGUNDY KINGDOM-BURGUNDY COUNTY NOBILITY). 

Huard & his wife had one child: 

1.         PIERRE de Bauffremont (-after [10] Jan [1303]).  Europäische Stammtafeln records his parentage[1210].  The primary source which confirms the information has not been identified.  Seigneur de Bulgnéville:  “Pierres de Beffroyment sires de Bulgenvile et Jehans de Rosières chevalier” notified that “messires Wautiers sires de Beffroymont et messires Huairs ses frères chevalier” agreed the partition of the territories of “mon signour Liebaut signour de Beffroymont lour peire, qui fuit, et de ma dame Adeline sa femme lour meire que fuit” by charter dated [10] Jan 1302 (probably O.S.), which lists all the properties in question[1211]m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Pierre’s wife has not been identified.  Europäische Stammtafeln names her “Agnès Chauderon †1304/05” (no more details)[1212], who has not otherwise been identified.  Pierre & his wife had [two] children:  

a)         HUARD de Bauffremont (-after Jan 1326).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, but his inheritance of the seigneurie de Bulgnéville suggests that Huard was the son of Pierre.  Seigneur de Bulgnéville.  “Huairs de Beffroimont chevalier sire de Bullegneville” promised Ferry Duke of Lorraine to buy land “en la ville de Gondrexeville” which had given to “madame Jehanne de Henalmesnil jadis femme monsr Carle de Lugneville” by charter dated Jan 1326[1213]Europäische Stammtafeln records that Huard married firstly “Jeanne de Henamesnil 1326†” (not otherwise identified) and secondly “Mahaut de Rougemont” (who has not been identified in the Rougemont family, see BURGUNDY KINGDOM-BURGUNDY COUNTY NOBILITY), with Humbert Seigneur de Bulgnéville (see below) as his son by his second wife[1214]

b)         [--- de Bauffremont )Europäische Stammtafeln records “Barbe †(1315)” as daughter of Pierre and her marriage shown here[1215].  Dunod suggests this first marriage of Henri du Chastelet on the basis that “la terre de Bulligneville...possédée par ses descendans” was granted as a fief to Henri’s grandson by charter dated 1357 in which he names “feu son oncle Huet de Bauffremont Seigneur de Bulligneville[1216].  The Bauffremont name “Liébaud” given to Henri’s son suggests that Dunod may be correct.  Some doubt is introduced by a later document which suggests that part of the land was inherited by the children of Erard [IV] de Chastelet through their mother: a charter dated 8 Aug 1440 records the settlement of a dispute between “Herard du Chastelet chevalier Seigneur de Dulley et de Cirey...[et] Pierre et autres mes enfans” and “Claude de Tinteville Seigneur de Chanelz et de Comarien” regarding the succession of “feu...Hue de Buligneville jadis seigneur dudit lieu...ses héritiers en partie du costé paternel...ledit Claude de Tinteville et lesdits enffans de...ledit Herard[1217]Calmet notes “une sentence du 1 juin 1491 qui maintient Jacques, Philibert et Pierre du Châtelet en possession de la moitié de la terre de Bulgnéville, contre Jean d’Arberg fils de Jeanne de Baufremont[1218].  m [as his first wife,] HENRI du Chastelet Seigneur d’Autigny, son of JEAN du Chastelet & his first wife Gillette de Passavant (-[1331/Dec 1346]).] 

 

 

1.         HUMBERT de Bauffremont (-killed in battle Ligny-en-Barrois 4 Apr 1368)Seigneur de BulgnévilleEuropäische Stammtafeln records Humbert as son of Huard (see above) by his second wife “Mahaut de Rougemont”, together with one brother and three sisters[1219].  The primary source which confirms this information has not been identified.  m ---.  The primary source which confirms Humbert’s marriage has not been identified.  Europäische Stammtafeln records that he married “before 1360” “Jeanne de La Fauche, Mar 1406†”, daughter of “Hugues”, who married secondly “Jean de Noyers sn de Rimaucourt et de Vendeuvre-sur-Barse †Apr 1412”[1220]: if that is correct, she was “Jeanne de la Fauche, widow of Humbert de Bauffremont Seigneur de Bulgnéville, daughter of Hugues de la Fauche & his wife Jeanne d’Anglure”, who married secondly Jean de Noyers Seigneur de Rimaucourt.  On the other hand, Père Anselme names “Jeanne de Joinville la Fauche, dame de Lains, de Bourreules et de Vielains” as the wife of Jean de Noyers-Rimaucourt, without naming Humbert de Bauffremont (no sources cited)[1221].  Expanding on this, Jolibois names “Jeanne, femme de Jean de Noyers, seigneur de Rimaucourt” as younger daughter of Ogier de Joinville and his wife “Marguerite de Joinville, fille d’André” (no mention of Humbert either, no sources cited)[1222].  Delaborde also records her parentage and marriage, but only cites Jolibois[1223].  If Jolibois and Delaborde are correct, Jean’s wife was Jeanne de Joinville, daughter of Ogier de Joinville Seigneur de la Fauche & his wife Marguerite de Joinville-Beaupré, although in that case it is uncertain where Humbert de Bauffremont would fit into the picture.  The contradiction has not been resolved, although the following reference suggests that (in reference to Jean’s wife) the Joinville connection may be correct: Père Anselme records that Jean de Noyers “eut un long différend avec Henry seigneur de la Roche [=Henri de Saint-Dizier seigneur de la Fauche, Ogier’s son-in-law] et Thomas de la Rochelle [not identified] chevaliers”, for which Jean’s lands were confiscated and only returned by the king 22 Jun 1373 (no source citations)[1224].  Anselme does not discuss the nature of the dispute but, if Henri and Jean had married sisters, it may have resulted from their father’s succession (the explanation for the involvement of “Thomas de la Rochelle” has not been found)  In conclusion, presumably the confusion results from a source (not yet found) which names her only “Jeanne de la Fauche”, different secondary authors having assigned her to the two different families which seem both to have held (part?) of la Fauche around that time.  If that is correct, it is still not known whether the same Jeanne married Humbert as her first husband.  Humbert & his wife had three children: 

a)         JEANNE de Bauffremont [Bulgnéville] (-1429, bur Bayon)Europäische Stammtafeln records her parentage and marriage, noting her death in 1429[1225].  The primary source which confirms that this is correct has not been identified.  Dame de Ebexy.  An epitaph at “l’église de Bayon en la chapelle des seigneurs de Fénétrange” records the burial of “Henri d’Amance chevalier seigneur de Bayon et baron dudit lieu, ensemble madame Jeanne de Bulgneville, dame de Beney [corrected to “Bexy”, =Ebexy, Vosges, by Quintard] et de Bayon, icelui fondateur de cette chapelle” who died in 1407 [date incorrect][1226]m HENRI d’Amance, son of WICHART d’Amance & his wife Jeannette de Bayon (-[1427], bur Bayon)

b)         JEAN de Bauffremont (-1426).  Europäische Stammtafeln records his parentage, ecclesiastical position, and date of death[1227].  The primary source which confirms that this is correct has not been identified.  Abbé d’Auberive. 

c)         HUE de Bauffremont (-8 Aug 1440).  Europäische Stammtafeln records his parentage and date of death[1228].  The primary source which confirms that this is correct has not been identified.  Seigneur de Bulgnéville.  Seigneur de Longecourt.  m (before 18 Sep 1403) MARGUERITE de Ballore, daughter of GAUDRY de Ballore & his wife ---.  Europäische Stammtafeln records her parentage and marriage[1229].  The primary source which confirms that this is correct has not been identified.
