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.

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]

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"[11], 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"[12]During the investiture crisis, Duke Thierry supported Emperor Heinrich IV who enabled him to take control of Metz after expelling Hermann Bishop of Metz[13].  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[14].  Emperor Heinrich V granted him the title "Marquis" in [1114][15]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[16].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "30 Dec" of "Theodoricus dux"[17]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[18]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"[19].  The Genealogica Comitum Flandriæ Bertiniana specifies that "Robertus comes cognomento Frisio" had three daughters "tercia Theoderico comiti Alsatie [nupsit]"[20]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"[21].  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[22].  He succeeded his father in 1115 as SIMON I Duke of Lorraine

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[23]The Chronologia Johannes de Beke records the marriage of Count Floris and "Petronillam Lotharii cesaris sororem"[24]The Annales Magdeburgenses name "Gertrudeis comitissa de…Holland…soror Lotherii Saxonis ducis" when recording her rebellion in 1123[25].  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"[26]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"[27].  Beke's Egmondsch Necrologium records the death "1144 X Kal Iun" of "Petronilla comitissa"[28]m (1113) FLORIS II Count of Holland, son of DIRK V Count [of Holland] & his wife Othelindis --- (-2 Mar 1121).

h)         BAUDOUIN .  The Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin records "Balduinum fratrem Theoderici comitis Flandrie"[40]

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"[41]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[42], 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).]

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[46].  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"[47].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[48], 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"[49].  Poull[50] 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"[51], 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[52], 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][53] 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[54]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][55].  "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[56]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[57]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"[58].  The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XIX Kal Feb" of "Simon Lotaringorum dux"[59].  The necrology of Gorze records the death "XIX Kal Feb" of "Simon dux Lotharingiæ"[60].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy-lès-Toul records the death "14 Jan" of "Sigismundus dux"[61]

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"[62].  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[63]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"[64]After the death of her husband, Adelaide retired to the Cistercian abbey of Notre-Dame du Tart, near Dijon[65]

Duke Simon I & his wife had [eight] 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[66].  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 LorraineThe Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records the wife of Comte Renaud as "Simonis Lotharingiorum ducis filiam"[67]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[68]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[69]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).

m (before 1221) JULIANE de Rozoy, daughter of ROGER Seigneur de Rozoy & his wife Alix d´Avesnes (-after 1251).  The late 13th century genealogy by Balduinus de Avennis names "Machtildem, Aelidem, Adeluyam et Agnetem" as the four daughters of "Nicolai Plukelli filius primogenitus Jacobus" and his wife, adding that "Aelidis secunda filia" married "domino Rogero de Rosoy" by whom she had one son and four daughters and naming their descendants[539].  “Gobertus dominus Asperimontis et Duni et Juliana uxor eius” donated their part “in decima de Lyons et de Mervaulx” to the hospital at Dun by charter dated Aug 1234[540].  “Juliana domina de Duno quondam uxor Goberti domini Asperimontis” acknowledged that “Johannes li Bois de Duno fidelis meis” had renounced claims in favour of Orval, by charter dated May 1239[541]Gobert d’Apremont et Julienne sa femme fille de feu Roger de Rosoy l’aîné” acknowledged receipt from “Roger de Rosoy frère de Julienne” relating to “les alleux de leur père à Dizy, Fraillecourt, Reneville” by undated charter[542].  This document is dated to [1270] in the compilation which is impossible in view of the date of death of Juliane’s husband.  Clementia comitissa Salmensis” noted the donations made by “Aelidis dicta domina de Audenarde, Juliana dicta domina de Asperomonte...sorores meæ...[et] Rogero domino Rosetensi...fratri meo” and the monks at Signy by charter dated 1246[543].  Dame de Chaumont 1251.

B.      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[568].  Delisle’s arguments are convincing, and all references to these three documents are placed in square brackets below to highlight that the extracts quoted from these documents 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[569]

 

 

11.      [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[570].  As discussed under Liébaud [II], this charter is dubious.  The existence of Eudes/Odon de Bauffremont is far from certain.] 

 

 

Two brothers: 

7.         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)[571].  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...[572].  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...[573]

8.         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)[574]

 

 

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[575]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[576].  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[577].  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[578].  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 BauffremontPierre 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[579]

[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)[662].  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[663]].  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[664].  “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[665].  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[666].  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[667].  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[668]

Liébaud [IV] & his [second] wife had children: 

1.         GAUTHIER de Bauffremont (-after Jul 1332).  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[669].  “Oudet de Tilluel ecuyer” surrendered his fief to “Watier chevalier seignour de Boffroyment” by charter dated Jun 1326[670].  “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[671]m (before 2 May 1315) 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[672].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Gauthier married “before 2 May 1313 Marguerite de Crus (heute: Creue, Meuse), 1315[673].  Lefebvre indicates that “Vautier sire de Bauffremont aïeul de Philibert” married “Marguerite de Choiseul dame de Scey-sur-Saône” (no citation reference)[674].  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[675].  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: 

a)         LIEBAUD [V] 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[676].  “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[677].  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[678]m firstly (contract 9 May 1317) GUILLEMETTE de Montaigu, daughter of PHILIBERT Seigneur de Montaigu [Burgundy-Capet] & his wife Jeanne de Vienne.  “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[679]m secondly BEATRICE de Vauvray, daughter of ---.  Poull indicates that Liébaud [V] married secondly “Béatrice de Vauvray”[680]m thirdly (contract 1343) ISABELLE, 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[681].  Liébaud [V] & his wife had children:

m firstly (before Oct 1225) [JEANNE de Dombasle, daughter of --- (-before 1242).  This possible first marriage depends on the reliability and interpretation of the source quoted below which indicates that Eustache [III] de Conflans married “la fille au seigneur de Blammont”.  If that person was the same as Eustache’s known wife, who was first named in May 1250, she could only have been Friedrich’s daughter by an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage.  The chronology of Friedrich’s life does suggest the likelihood of an earlier marriage, although as noted below another possible interpretation of the source is that the daughter of the seigneur de Blâmont was Eustache’s second wife.  Grosdidier de Matons names “Jeanne de Dombasle” as Friedrich/Ferry’s first wife[699].  Her family origin is confirmed by the charter dated Oct 1225 under which Mathieu II Duke of Lorraine, in the presence of “Ferry de Blancmont à raison de sa femme, dame de Dombasle”, agreed their use of land “sise au côteau de Crévic” for 7 years[700].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified. 

m secondly (before 25 Sep 1242) as her first husband, JEANNE de Bar, daughter of HENRI II Comte de Bar & his wife Philippa de Dreux [Capet] (-31 Aug, before Aug 1299, bur Orval).  She married secondly (before 22 Jul 1257) Louis [V] de Looz Comte de Chiny.  The late 13th century genealogy by Balduinus de Avennis records that "dominam de Albo-monte, germanam comitis Barrensis Theobaldi, relictam domini Henrici de Salmis [error]" married "Ludovicus [comes] de Chini"[701].  "Lois fis le comte de Los et de Chinei, sires d´Estables et…Jehenne sa femme dame de Blanmont" confirmed the donations to the abbey of Orval made by "Arnous cuens de Los et de Chinei notre pere et Jehenne sa femme comtesse…notre mere" by charter dated Feb 1258[702].  "Louis comte de Chiny et Jeanne d´Anis de Blamont comtesse du même lieu" founded the priory of Sussy in the county of Chiny by charter dated 1286[703].  The necrology of Orval records the death “pridie Kal Sep” of “Joanna comitissa de Chiney et domina de Blanmont” and her donation of “mansum in Ivodio[704]

Friedrich & his [first/second wife] had [one child]: 

1.         [[JEANNE] (-after Feb 1264)The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Eustasses...sire de Mareuil et connestable de Champagne” married “la fille au seigneur de Blammont[705].  The only person who has yet been identified as “seigneur de Blammont” at that time is Friedrich von Salm Seigneur de Blâmont.  If he was Eustache’s father-in-law, there appear to be two possibilities.  Firstly, assuming that she was the same person as Eustache’s known wife Jeanne, the latter’s mention in 1250 indicates that she could only have been born from Friedrich’s first marriage.  The second possibility is that Eustache married “la fille au seigneur de Blammont” after Jeanne died, this second wife being Friedrich’s daughter by his second wife Jeanne de Bar.  It should be noted that, according to Europäische Stammtafeln, Eustache [III] married “Jeanne de Plancy Dame de ½ Gondrecourt (/1250), Victs de Troyes (/1263), d. of Guy de Plancy[706].  Gondrecourt is named in the charter dated May 1250, quoted below, and the vicomté de Troyes in the charter dated Feb 1263.  The primary source which confirms the Plancy connection has not been identified, although Guy de Plancy is named (not as Jeanne’s father) in the document dated Jul 1250, also quoted below.  “Eustaches de Conflans chevaliers” exchanged “la terre que j’ai...par droit de Iehanne ma femme à Gondricourt” with Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne for land “entre Colomiers en Brie et Chaalons outre Marne” by charter dated May 1250[707].  By charter dated Jul 1250, “Eustaces sires de Coflans” agreed payments for the same to be made within one year, noting that he would not involve “l’Euesque de Toul...ne au signor de Risnel”, and that after one year “je ne voldroie respondre et se Geraviler que je tenoie en fié dou signor de Joinvile qui soloit alues auttans mon signor Guion de Planci et cil Guiz en fist fié[708].  “Eustache de Conflans mareschaus de Champaigne...et Iehanne sa feme” requested Thibaut V Comte de Champagne, King of Navarre to confirm an exchange of property with the chapter of Troyes by charter dated Feb 1263 (O.S.)[709].  The chapter of Troyes Saint-Etienne gave rights of “Vert [la-Gravelle]” to “Eustache de Conflans maréchal de Champagne et à Jeanne sa femme” in exchange for “[leurs] droits...sur la vicomté de Troyes” by charter dated Feb 1263 (O.S.)[710]m [as his first/second wife,] EUSTACHE [III] de Conflans Seigneur de Mareuil, son of EUSTACHE [II] Seigneur de Conflans & his wife Helvide de Thourotte (-after Sep 1293).]

E.      SEIGNEURS de COMMERCY

 

 

The seigneurie de Commercy, located on the left bank of the river Meuse, was bound to the north by the seigneurie d’Aspremont, to the south by the lands of the bishopric of Toul, and to the west by the county of Bar[790].  It lay within the territory of the earlier pagus Bedensis[791].  Commercy was first recorded as shared by Richwin and by Renaud Comte de Bar et de Mousson (see BAR)[792].  This joint holding of the seigneurie suggests a common ancestry, and indeed the name Richwin appears in the possible paternal ancestry of the Comtes de Bar (Richwin Comte de Charpeigne).  Renaud Comte de Bar granted Commercy to his daughter Stéphanie/Etiennette who married Hugues [III] Seigneur de Broyes et de Châteauvillain (see CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY), ancestor of Gaucher [I] Seigneur de Commercy whose family is shown below.  The charters quoted below show that collateral descendants of Richwin continued to play a role in Commercy until the mid- to late-12th century, parallel with the Commercy seigneurial family descended from the seigneurs de Broyes.

Symon de Commercy[823].  The necrology of the Cordeliers de Salins records the death III Non Oct” 1285 of “domina Lora comitissa Cabilonensis apud nos sepulta[824]m (1258) as his third wife, JEAN de Chalon Seigneur des Salins, "l'Antique/le Sage", son of ETIENNE [III] Comte d´Auxonne & his first wife Béatrice Ctss de Chalon (1190-30 Aug 1267, bur Abbaye de Bourguignon-lès-la Charité, Haunte-Saône). 

2.         GUILLAUME de Commercy (-after Sep 1240).  “Galterius dominus de Commercy...filios meos Simonem et Guillelmum milites” swore homage to “dominum meum Joannem comitem Burgundiæ et dominum de Salins” for “Castrum-Villani in Jura et Montem-Revelli” by charter dated late Sep 1240[825].  He presumably died before Dec 1248, the date of the charter quoted above which names his mother and two [younger] brothers. 

3.         GAUCHER [II] de Commercy (-before 26 Oct 1308).  "A […Angnes] domina de Commerceio relicta G condam domini de Commerceio, Galcherus et Henricus filii eiusdem" swore homage to the bishop of Metz by charter dated Dec 1248[826].  “Messires Wachiers li juenes, chevaliers, fil mons.

Jehan de Chalon signour d´Arlay” for “le chastel de Chatelvilain” by charter dated 10 Apr 1293[827]Seigneur du Châteauvillain-du-Jura et de Montrivel.  m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Gaucher’s wife has not been identified.  Gaucher [II] & his wife had children: 

a)         [AGNES de Commercy (-after May 1308).  Although her family name is confirmed by the charter dated May 1308 quoted below, the primary source which confirms the parentage of the wife of Thiébaut [V] Seigneur de Neuchâtel has not been identified.  Père Anselme names her “Jeanne de Commercy, fille puînée de Gaucher de Broyes, seigneur de Commercy, et d’Elizabeth sa femme[828].  From a chronological point of view, it seems unlikely that Thiébaut’s wife was the daughter of Gaucher [I] Seigneur de Commercy whose death is dated to [1244/49] (see above).  Richard records that Thiébaut married “Agnès fille de Walchier de Commercy seigneur de Château-Vilain et de Montrivel”, dating the marriage to [1270/80], although he cites no source on which he bases this information[829].  Presumably this “Walchier” is identified as Gaucher [II] de Commercy, but the corroborating primary source has not been identified.  “Agnès de Chatelvilain, dame de L’Isle et...Thiébaut sui fils chevaliers sires de Nuefchastel” confirmed privileges granted to L’Isle-sur-le-Doubs by “de bonne mémoire Messire Thiébaut jadis grans sires du devandit Nuefchastel” by charter dated May 1308[830]m THIEBAUT [V] Seigneur de Neuchâtel [en Bourgogne], son of [RICHARD Seigneur de Neuchâtel [en Bourgogne] & his wife Marguerite de Montfaucon] (-before May 1308).

5.         [ALIX de Commercy ([1230]-after Jun 1297).  Her family origin and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 15 Oct 1274 quoted below, but the primary source which identifies her parents precisely has not been identified.  Her parentage is also indicated by the testament of [her daughter] “Guillemette fille de Gaultier d’Andelot chev. et femme de Jn d’Oiselet “Monte avium” damoiseau” which appointed “son père et Gauthier de Chateauvillain son oncle” as executors[832].  The chronology of the Coligny family suggests that her birth can be estimated very approximately to [1230], which indicates that Alix could have been a younger child of Gaucher [I] Seigneur de Commercy.  Alix de Commercis domina de Andelot”, in accordance with the last wishes of “quondam filii mei Humberti...defuncti”, donated rights “in castro de Andelos et in castellania” and all the succession of “Galteri quondam mariti mei domini quondam de Andelos et Humberti filii mei nuper defuncti”, to “Stephano de Coliniaco filio quondam nobilis viri Amedei quondam domini Coliniaci”, unless “Agnetem nurum meam” gave birth to “filium, filiamue...a filio nostro Humberto”, by charter dated 15 Oct 1274[833].  Similar charters are dated 19 Jul 1276 and 4 Dec 1283[834].  The testament of “Dame Alix de Commercy veufue de feu monsieur Gautier de Coligny chevalier seigneur d’Andelot”, dated late Jun 1297, bequeathed property in the diocesis of Lyon to “messire Estienne de Coligny[835]m GAUTHIER de Coligny Seigneur de Montgiffon, son of HUMBERT [III] de Coligny Seigneur d’Andelot & his wife --- (-[1272/15 Oct 1274]).]

G.      SEIGNEURS de DOMBASLE

 

 

Dombasle, now called Dombasle-sur-Meurthe, is located on the eastern bank of the river Meurthe about 15 kilometres south-east of Nancy, in the present-day French département of Meurthe-et-Moselle, arrondissement Nancy, canton Saint-Nicolas-de-Port.  The Dombasle family was first mentioned in primary sources in the early 12th century in relation to the foundation of the priory of Saint-Don.  An unbroken line of descent from this family to the later generations shown below has not been traced.  As noted below, Henry [II] de Dombasle was called “frère du comte de Salm” in a 1235 charter.  A direct family relationship with the family of the Grafen von Salm (see LUXEMBOURG) has not been established.  One difficulty is chronological.  In 1235, Heinrich [III] was Graf von Salm but, considering his marriage “before 1189”, it is impossible that his brother was still alive in 1293.  Heinrich [IV] succeeded his grandfather in 1246 but was still a minor in 1235, so is unlikely to have been described as “comte de Salm” even if he shared the title during his grandfather’s lifetime.  However, an indirect family relationship is possible through Heinrich [III]’s younger son Friedrich Seigneur de Blâmont who claimed Salm during his father’s lifetime and could therefore have been described as “comte de Salm”.  In addition, Friedrich’s first wife was recorded in a charter dated 1225 as “dame de Dombasle”.  The most likely explanation for the 1235 charter is therefore that “frère” was used in the broader sense to indicate brother-in-law.  Another interesting aspect of the Dombasle family is their relationship with Renier [III] Seigneur de Bourbonne.  As noted below, Renier [III] called Henri de Dombasle his “frère” in 1255 and 1277.  There appear to be two possibilities: the brothers could be sons of the same mother, by different marriages, or they could have been brothers-in-law, the one married to the other’s sister or both married to two sisters.  Faget de Casteljau suggested that Elisabeth, widow of Foulques Seigneur de Bourbonne, married Henri de Dombasle as her second husband, assuming that Foulques and Elisabeth were parents of Renier [III][852].  That is one possibility, although there are indications that Foulques died without direct heirs as explained under Bourbonne.  As so many different permutations could explain their “fraternal” relationship, it is fruitless to speculate on what might be the precise family relationship between Renier and Henri.  Renier and Henri shared the “ban de Crévic”, a property of the abbey of Remiremont.  Crévic is located adjacent to Dombasle to the north-east.

1.         [JEANNE] de Dombasle (-before 1242).  Grosdidier de Matons names “Jeanne de Dombasle” as first wife of Friedrich/Ferry von Salm Seigneur de Blâmont[868].  Her family origin is confirmed by the charter dated Oct 1225 under which Mathieu II Duke of Lorraine, in the presence of “Ferry de Blancmont à raison de sa femme, dame de Dombasle”, agreed their use of land “sise au côteau de Crévic” for 7 years[869].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.  m (before Oct 1225) as his first wife, FRIEDRICH von Salm Seigneur de Blâmont, son of HEINRICH [III] Graf von Salm & his wife Jutta [Judith] de Lorraine (-[1255]). 

2.         HENRI [II] de Dombasle (-1293 or after, bur Toul Dominican church).  Calmet notes a charter of Senones abbey dated 1235 which names Henry de Dombasle frere du comte de Salm[870].  Although Heinrich [III] was Graf von Salm in 1235, the chronology of Henri de Dombasle’s life suggests the probability that he was the brother of Graf Heinrich [IV].  If that is correct, the reason for his bearing the same name as his brother is unclear, unless they had different mothers.  One possibility is that Henri de Dombasle was illegitimate, maybe the same person as Henri’s illegitimate son who is shown below.  His relationship with the Bourbonne family (see CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY) is indicated by the following document: Renier [III] Seigneur de Bourbonne and “[son] frère Henri de Dombasle” shared “par parts égales le ban de Crévic” by charter dated 1255[871].  The word “frère” could indicate that they shared the same mother, or it could indicate “brother-in-law” which might indicate that the two individuals married sisters (maybe co-heiresses of Dombasle?).  The chapter of Remiremont and “Renier de Bourbonne et Henrion de Dombasle, voués du ban de Crévic” settled rights relating to the ban by charter dated 1255[872].  “Henri de Dombasle” acknowledged allegiance to “Henri de Blâmont” for land “à Anthelupt” by charter dated Feb 1272 (O.S.)[873].  Renier de Bourbonne sold fiefs held from the duke of Lorraine to “son frère Henri de Dombasle” by charter dated 1277[874].  The testament of “Henry chevalier sire de Dombale”, dated 1293, chose burial “[aux] frères prêcheurs de Toul”, was sealed by “le duc de Lorraine...le sire de Blâmont[875].  m ---.  The name of Henri’s wife is not known.  Henri [II] & his wife had [four] children: 

a)         JEAN de DombasleThe chapter of Remiremont and “Jean, Ferry et Henrias, fils de Henry sire de Dombasle, voués” agreed various matters by charter dated 1305[876]

b)         FERRY de DombasleThe chapter of Remiremont and “Jean, Ferry et Henrias, fils de Henry sire de Dombasle, voués” agreed various matters by charter dated 1305[877]

c)         HENRI de DombasleThe chapter of Remiremont and “Jean, Ferry et Henrias, fils de Henry sire de Dombasle, voués” agreed various matters by charter dated 1305[878]

d)         [FELICITE [Laure] [de Dombasle] (-1294).  Abbess of Remiremont 1287.  Guinot records the election in 1287 of “Felicitas dicta Loretta” as abbess, suggesting that she was “de la maison de Paroye et de Dombasle[879].  Her seal reads “Felicitatis de Lorette de Domballus abbat. Romar.[880].  Guinot records her death in 1294[881].] 

 

 

Calmet records the following details of the later members of his family, without citing the corresponding primary sources[882].  The primary sources which confirm this information have not been identified.
