D.      SEIGNEURS de MACHECOUL (SEIGNEURS de RAYS)

 

 

Machecoul is situated in the present-day French département of Loire-Atlantique, south-west of Nantes.  The seigneuries of Machecoul and Rays are recorded in the same family from the early 12th century.  After the death in [1213/14] of the last male member of the family, Machecoul, together with the seigneurie of La-Roche-sur-Yon, was inherited by his sister Béatrix who married, as her second husband, Aimery de Thouars.  Her daughter Jeanne inherited Machecoul (see POITOU, VICOMTES de THOUARS) but died childless in [1258/30].  In the meantime, it appears that a rival claim emerged to Machecoul.  Blanchard records that Philippe VI King of France confiscated the seigneurie de La Roche-sur-Yon on the death in 1235 of Béatrix de Machecoul, but that it was regranted soon afterwards to Béatrix´s daughter Jeanne.  Blanchard notes a charter dated Jul 1239 under which "Margarita domina Gasnapie, Montis Acuti et Machecolii", who was the second wife of Pierre I ex-Duke of Brittany, confirmed a donation to Buzay[117].  He speculates that the French king must have confiscated Machecoul at the same time as La-Roche-sur-Yon and, instead of regranting it to Jeanne de Thouars, granted it to the duke of Brittany who would then have granted it to his third wife by way of dower.  After the death of Marguerite without issue at the end of 1241, ex-duke Pierre must have resumed possession of Marguerite´s properties, including Machecoul which he then granted to Olivier, his son by his second wife.  Blanchard quotes several primary source documents which name Olivier as seigneur de Machecoul in the 1250s[118].  However, a series of documents dated between 1258 and 1269 demonstrates that the dispute with Jeanne de Thouars and her heirs concerning the right to the seigneurie de Machecoul must have continued to fester since 1235.  After the death of Jeanne in 1258, her distant relative Eustachie dame de Rays and her husband Gérard [I] Chabot (see the document WESTERN POITOU) claimed Machecoul and the documents indicate that Olivier relinquished the seigneurie under the terms of the settlement which was agreed.  In 1276, the oldest grand-daughter of Gérard [I] Chabot was married to Olivier´s oldest son and heir, who later consolidated all the rights to Machecoul which remained in his family until the death in the mid-15th century of his last descendants in the male line.

Two brothers, parents not known.  Garsire [II] is recorded with an unmarried daughter, Beatrix, towards the end of his life (see below).  In addition, his oldest son Harscoët [II] must have died childless (or with infant children who were passed over in the succession) as he was succeeded by his younger brother Raoul.  This suggests the unlikelihood that he was the same person as Garsire [I], who was named between 1083 and [1104] as shown above.  Even more obvious is that Harscoët [III], son of Garsire [II], could not have been the same person as Harscoët [II].  If all this speculation is correct, the two brothers Garsire [II] and Joscelin could have been sons of Harscoët [II], of one of the latter’s otherwise unrecorded brothers, or may have descended from one of the brothers of Garsire [I] who are named above.

3.         ALIX de Porhoët Given-Wilson & Curteis state that “Eudo de Porhoët, ex-count of Brittany” claimed in 1168 that the English king, while holding his daughter as a hostage for peace, had made her pregnant ‘treacherously, adulterously and incestuously; for the king and Eudo´s wife were the offspring of two sisters’” (referring to two daughters of King Henry I, one legitimate the other illegitimate, named Matilda)[323].  The primary source on which this information is based has not been identified.  Mistress (1168) of: HENRY II King of England, son of GEOFFROY "le Bel/Plantagenet" Comte d'Anjou et du Maine & his wife [Empress] Matilda of England (Le Mans, Anjou 5 Mar 1133-Château de Chinon 6 Jul 1189, bur Abbaye de Fontevrault). 

Eudes & his second wife had [three] children:

vi)       [daughter The Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis records that a daughter of "Helenus de Roem" and his wife married "Arveus de Leon filius Guimar"[369].  It is not known whether this refers to one of the daughters of Alain [III] who are named above.  m HERVE [ÌI] de Léon, son of GUYOMAR [IV] Vicomte de Léon & his wife Margilia --- (-1218).] 

vii)      [HELOISE (-after [1213]).  "Helois filia Al. Vicecomitis de Rohan" donated property to Bonrepos, with the consent of "dominus Josselinus Vicecomes de Rohan", by undated charter (included in the compilation among documents dated 1213)[370].  On the basis of this document, Heloise could have been the daughter either of Vicomte Alain [III] or Vicomte Alain [IV].  The former appears to be the more likely possibility as a daughter of Alain [IV] (then deceased) would have been young in 1213 to have made an independent donation without the consent of her own brothers.  However, the charter dated Feb 1259, under which Catherine de Rohan confirmed the donation made by her deceased sister Heloise, suggests that the two sisters were daughters of Alain [IV] as it appears improbable from a chronological point of view that a daughter of Alain [III] was still living in 1259.  One possibility is that the two references to Heloise do not refer to the same person, and that the donor under the 1213 charter was the daughter of Alain [III], while the sister of Catherine was the daughter of Alain [IV].] 

2.         JOSCELIN (-after [1127/28]).  "Alanus vicecomes Porrohouetensis" donated property to the monks of Saint-Martin by charter dated [1127/28], witnessed by "Jostho filius eius…"[371].   

 

 

ALAIN [IV] de Rohan, son of ALAIN [III] Vicomte de Rohan & his wife Constance de Penthièvre (-27 Oct 1205).  "Alanus vicecomes de Rohan…cum uxore mea Constantia" founded the abbey of Bon-Repos, as a burial place for himself and "Alanus filius meus", with the consent of "Alano et Guillelmo filiis meus", by charter dated 23 Jun 1184[372]"Alanus vicecomes de Rohan...cum uxore mea Constancia" founded Bonrepos abbey for his own burial and that of "Alanus filius meus", with the consent of “Alano filio meo”, and donated property “in Britannia et in Anglia...in episcopate Eliensi...ecclesiam de Fuleburne...”, witnessed by “Herveo de Leon, Herveo filio Comitis...”, a second version of the document dated 20 Jun 1184 recording the consent of “Alano et Guillelmo filiis meis[373]Vicomte de Rohan"Alanus juvenis de Rohan" confirmed donations made to Bonrepos abbey, for the salvation of "Mabiliæ uxoris meæ", with the consent of “filiis meis Gaufrido et Conano et Alano”, by undated charter[374]Seigneur de Guéméné.  "Alanus de Rohan" donated property to the abbey of Bon-Repos, with the consent of "Jocelino fratre meo…et filiis et heredibus meis Gaufrido, Conano et Alano", by charter dated 1204[375]

m MABILE de Fougères, daughter of RAOUL [II] Seigneur de Fougères & his wife Mathilde ---.  "Alanus juvenis de Rohan" confirmed donations made to Bonrepos abbey, for the salvation of "Mabiliæ uxoris meæ", with the consent of “filiis meis Gaufrido et Conano et Alano”, by undated charter[376]The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. 

Alain [IV] & his wife had [six] children: 

1.         GEOFFROY [I] (-15 Sep 1221)"Alanus juvenis de Rohan" confirmed donations made to Bonrepos abbey, for the salvation of "Mabiliæ uxoris meæ", with the consent of “filiis meis Gaufrido et Conano et Alano”, by undated charter[377]"Alanus de Rohan" donated property to the abbey of Bon-Repos, with the consent of "Jocelino fratre meo…et filiis et heredibus meis Gaufrido, Conano et Alano", by charter dated 1204[378]"Joscelinus vicecomes de Rohan" confirmed the foundation of Bonrepos abbey, for the souls of "mee et uxoris mee", with the consent of “nepotibus meis Gaufrido, Conano et Alano”, by charter dated 1213[379]Vicomte de Rohan"Gaufredus vicecomes de Rohan" confirmed donations to Bonrepos abbey made by “avus meus Alanus vicecomes de Rohan et pater meus”, for the salvation of “Margaritæ uxoris meæ”, with the consent of "fratribus meis Oliverio et Alano", by charter dated 1216[380]m firstly MARGUERITE, daughter of --- (-[1216/20]).  Her marriage is confirmed by the following document: "Gaufredus vicecomes de Rohan" confirmed donations to Bonrepos abbey made by “avus meus Alanus vicecomes de Rohan et pater meus”, for the salvation of “Margaritæ uxoris meæ”, with the consent of "fratribus meis Oliverio et Alano", by charter dated 1216[381].  The following charter appears to provide the only indication of Marguerite’s family origin: "Petrus dux Britanniæ comes Richemundiæ" confirmed, for the souls of “nostræ et...Margaritæ sororis nostræ dicti Gaufridi quondam uxoris”, that “Alanus vicecomes de Rohan” had donated revenue “de Costeteia” to Bonrepos for the soul of "Gaufridi fratris sui", by charter dated 1232[382].  Four possible parentages have been proposed.  Firstly, if “sororis” in this document is read literally, she was Marguerite de Dreux, daughter of Robert [II] Comte de Dreux et de Braine & his second wife Yolande de Coucy.  No other record has been found which names one of Pierre’s sisters Marguerite, so this parentage is not impossible.  It is true that the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers only to seven daughters of Pierre’s parents[383], but the omission of an eighth daughter is not impossible bearing in mind Alberic’s numerous inaccuracies.  None of Pierre’s known sisters married Breton noblemen, but after his own marriage Pierre may have wanted to consolidate his position in Brittany by marrying an unmarried sister to a powerful local magnate.  Secondly, “sororis” in the 1232 document could be interpreted as sister-in-law which, if correct, means that she was Marguerite de Thouars, daughter of Guy de Thouars & his second wife Constance Dss of Brittany.  This parentage was assumed to be correct by several 18th and 19th century secondary sources[384] and is an attractive possibility considering Marguerite’s Breton marriage.  The difficulty is that Constance, during her short third marriage, appears to have had insufficient time to have given birth to three children, although Léa Chaillou has suggested recently that Marguerite may have been twin with Constance’s daughter Catherine and that a difficult twin birth may explain Constance’s early death[385].  Thirdly, Europäische Stammtafeln shows Guy de Rohan’s first wife as Marguerite de Blundeville, daughter of Ranulf de Blundeville Earl of Chester & his first wife Constance de Bretagne[386].  No other source has been found which discusses this possibility.  It is assumed that it is speculative, based on the apparent chronological difficulty of Constance giving birth to three children by her third husband.  This possibility appears unlikely to be correct as Marguerite’s hereditary claim to the duchy of Brittany which would have been senior to the wife of Pierre de Dreux, who was Constance’s oldest daughter by her third husband.  While Marguerite may have been side-lined like Constance’s oldest daughter Eléonore, born from her mother’s first marriage, it is probable that Marguerite’s Breton husband would have pressed such a claim to increase his power-base.  Another problem is the Genealogia Comitum Richemundiæ which records that the second marriage of "Constantia filia Conani" and "Ranulphus Comes Cestriæ" was childless[387], although it is possible that this source omitted children who died young without children of their own.  Fourthly, she could have been Marguerite de Blundeville, daughter of Ranulf de Blundeville Earl of Chester & his second wife Clémence de Fougères.  This seems the least likely of the four possibilities as it would stretch the definition of “soror” in the 1232 document beyond what is probable.  m secondly (after 4 May 1220) as her second husband, GERVAISE de Vitré Vicomtesse de Dinan, widow of JUHAEL [II] Seigneur de Mayenne, daughter of ALAIN Seigneur de Vitré & his wife Clémence de Fougères (-[1235/41]).  "Henricus de Avalgor, filius Alani comitis…et Margarita uxor mea" renewed a donation of property to the abbey of Bon-Repos by "Gervasia domina Dinani", for the soul of "bone memorie Gaufridi vicecomitis de Rohan quondam mariti sui", by charter dated 1229[388].  She married thirdly (before Jan 1224) Richard Marshal, who succeeded his brother in 1231 as Earl of Pembroke, hereditary Master Marshal.  "Gervasia domina Dynanni" donated property to Saint-Aubin-des-Bois after the death of "bone memorie Richardi Marischallis, quondam mariti mei" by charter dated 1236[389].  Her date of death is confirmed by the charter dated 1241 under which "Droco de Melloto, Locharam et Meduane dominus" [her son-in-law] wrote to "fratri suo domino Henrico de Avalgor", naming "bone memorie domine Gervasie"[390]

2.         HELOISE (-before Feb 1259).  "Helois filia Al. Vicecomitis de Rohan" donated property to Bonrepos, with the consent of "dominus Josselinus Vicecomes de Rohan", by undated charter (included in the compilation among documents dated 1213)[391].  On the basis of this document, Heloise could have been the daughter either of Vicomte Alain [III] or Vicomte Alain [IV].  The former appears to be the more likely possibility as a daughter of Alain [IV] (then deceased) would have been young in 1213 to have made an independent donation without the consent of her own brothers.  However, the charter dated Feb 1259, under which her sister Catherine confirmed the donation made by her deceased sister Heloise, suggests that the two sisters were daughters of Alain [IV] as it appears improbable from a chronological point of view that a daughter of Alain [III] was still living in 1259.  Another possibility is that the two references to Heloise do not refer to the same person, and that the donor under the 1213 charter was the daughter of Alain [III] while the sister of Catherine was the daughter of Alain [IV]. 

3.         CATHERINE (-after Feb 1259).  "Catharina nobilis vidua filia Alani vicecomitis de Rohan" donated property to Bonrepos, with the consent of “filiæ meæ”, by charter dated 20 Sep 1230[392].  "Catharina de Rohan" donated property to Bonrepos by charter dated 1235[393].  "Domina Catharina de Rohan" confirmed the donation of “in decima de Querloys...in parochia de Noal” made to Bonrepos by “bonæ memoriæ Heloys sororis meæ” by charter dated Feb 1259[394].  Her husband is identified by the charter dated May 1270 under which [her daughter] “Adelicia filia Gaufridi de Henbont militis uxor Eudonis Picaut militis” donated property to Bon-Repos in accordance with the last wishes of “domina Katarina de Rohan mater mea[395]m GEOFFROY de Henbont, son of --- (-before 20 Sep 1230).

a)         MEEN [II] de Fougères (-before 1089, bur Fougères Sainte-Trinité).  "…Maino Alfridi filio…" signed the charter dated to before 1038 under which "Guarinus Redonensis episcopus" donated property to Marmoutier, confirmed by "Alanus comes"[542]"Maino" donated property to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères with the consent of "Adelaida coniuge mea et Eudoni filio nostro" by undated charter which names "Mainonis avi mei…Alfridus genitor meus"[543].  He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Fougères.  "…Mainonis de Filgeriis…" witnessed the charter dated to [1055] under which Guillaume II Duke of Normandy donated property to the abbey of Marmoutier[544].  The Chronique de Normandie, based on le Roman de Rou, names "le sire de Fougieres" among those who took part in the conquest of England in 1066[545].  He became a monk before he died, as shown by the undated charter under which "Radulfus Filogerensis et uxor eius Avicia" donated property to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères naming "pater eius Maino monachus sancti Martini apud Hilduini mansile…in comitatu comitis Moritonii"[546].  His date of death is suggested by the charter dated 1089 under which "Radulfus de Filgeriis" confirmed the donation by "Guillelmus" to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères recites an earlier donation by "Maino de Filgeriis"[547].  This is supported by the charter dated 1092 under which "Radulfus de Filgeriis" donated property to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères, which includes a certification by "W Moretoniensis comes" that "M de Filgeriis et R eius filius" had made a donation to the same abbey[548], indicating presumably that the 1092 donation was a confirmation.  His place of burial is proved by the undated charter recording the foundation of Sainte-Trinité de Fougères which recites that "Adelaidis" was buried in the priory next to "maritum suum Mainonem et filium suum Judhalem"[549]m ADELAIDE, daughter of --- (----, bur Fougères Sainte-Trinité).  "Adelaida coniuge mea et Eudoni filio nostro" consented to the donation by "Maino" to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères by undated charter which names "Mainonis avi mei…Alfridus genitor meus"[550].  "Matris meæ Adeladis…" consented to the donation by "Radulfus seculari militiæ mancipatus" to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères by undated charter[551].  She died after her husband, as shown by the evidence of the various charters cited here, but there is no indication of the date.  An undated charter recording the foundation of Sainte-Trinité de Fougères recites that "Adelaidis" was buried in the priory next to "maritum suum Mainonem et filium suum Judhalem"[552].  Méen [II] & his wife had five children:

(a)       MEEN [III] [Franswalo] de Fougères (-1138).  Guillaume de Jumièges records that "Richardum”, son of “Gislebertus...filius Godefridi comitis Aucensis”, had two daughters of whom one married “Rodulfo de Telegeriis” by whom she had “Fransualo, Henricus et Robertus Giffard[560].  "Radulfus Filgeriensis" with "his wife Avitia" donated property to the abbey of Holy Trinity, Sauvigny by charter dated 7 Mar 1113, subscribed by "Maino-franswalo filius eius, Henricus et Robertus similiter filii eius…"[561].  He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Fougères

iii)        JUHAËL .  "…Fratres mei Heudo…et Johelis" consented to the donation by "Radulfus seculari militiæ mancipatus" to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères by undated charter[570].  His place of burial is proved by the undated charter recording the foundation of Sainte-Trinité de Fougères which recites that "Adelaidis" was buried in the priory next to "maritum suum Mainonem et filium suum Judhalem"[571].  This suggests that Juhaël predeceased his mother. 

iv)       GODEHILDIS .  "…Sororis meæ Godeheldis…" consented to the donation by "Radulfus seculari militiæ mancipatus" to Sainte-Trinité de Fougères by undated charter[572]

1.         FRANGALO, son of --- .  Seigneur de Fougères.  The parentage of Frangalo is not known.  However, he must have been related to this family as the same unusual name was given to one of the younger sons of Henri Seigneur de Fougères (see below).  m [as her first husband,] CANA, daughter of GELDUIN Seigneur de Saumur & his [first] wife Gerberge du Perche.  The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Gosfridum…Puella vocatus…sororem Chanam" as children of "Gelduinus vir nobilis ex genere Danorum", specifying that Cana married "Frangalo Filgeriarum dominus" and had many sons and daughters[574].  It is not certain that this Cana was the same Cana as the sister of "Gosfridus de Calvo Monte" whose daughter "Dionisiam" married "Supplicio Lisoii filio"[575].  However, the burial of Denise at Pontlevoy, founded by Cana's parents, suggests that this is probably correct.  It is possible that this is the same person as Cana, daughter of Gelduin Seigneur de Pontlevoie, who married as his second wife, Raoul [V] Vicomte de Beaumont.  If this is correct, her marriage to Vicomte Raoul would probably have been her second marriage.  Frangalo & his wife had one child: 

a)         DENISE (-28 Apr after 1081, bur Pontlevoy).  The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Gosfridus de Calvo Monte…neptam suam sororis suæ Chanæ filiam…Dionisiam" as the wife of "Supplicio Lisoii filio"[576].  The Gesta Ambaziensium records the death "IV Kal Mai" of "Dionisia…coniux [Supplicio]" and her burial "Pontilevi iuxta parentes"[577]m SULPICE [I] Seigneur d'Amboise, son of LISOIS Seigneur de Bazoges & his wife Hersende de Buzançais (-1 Jun [1081], bur Pontlevoy).

a)         EMMA de la Guerche (-after 1 Apr 1161)The primary source which confirms her parentage and first marriage has not yet been identified.   "Robertus dominus Vitreii" granted property to Sauvigny with the consent of "Andrea filio meo et Emma matre mea et Emma uxore mea" by charter dated 1 Apr 1161[641]m firstly as his second wife, JUHAEL Seigneur de Châteaubriand, son of TIHERN de Châteaubriand & his wife --- (-[1120]).  m secondly ROBERT [II] Seigneur de Vitré, son of ANDRÉ [I] Seigneur de Vitré & his wife Emma de Mortain.  

 

 

Two brothers.  The primary source which confirms their parentage has not been identified.  The inheritance by Guillaume of the seigneurie de la Guerche suggests a family relationship with Gauthier Hay Seigneur de la Guerche (see above).  One possibility is that he was the son of Gauthier´s daughter Emma.  If that is correct, he would presumably have been born from her first marriage as there is no indication that la Guerche passed to the family of Robert de Vitré, her second husband.  However, out of the names typical of the Châteaubriand family (Briand, Juhael, Tihern, Geoffroy), only Geoffroy is found in the family of the later seigneurs de la Guerche and this is a relatively common name which is connected with many other families.  The name Hamon, borne by Guillaume´s brother, is also not associated with the Châteaubriand family.  On balance, unless another primary source emerges which confirms the relationship, the indications of descent from the Châteaubriand family are weak. 

 

1.         GUILLAUME de la Guerche (-1162).  "Guarinus dominus Credonensium" donated property to La Roë, in the presence of "Guillelmus de Guierchia…De hominibus Guillermi de Guierchia, Hamo frater eius...", by undated charter[642].  “...Guillelmo de Guirchia...” witnessed the charter dated 1148 under which Conan III Duke of Brittany donated property to Savigny[643]Seigneur de la Guerche"Dominus de Guerchia [...Guillelmus]", on leaving for Jerusalem, donated property to Saint Nicolas de Guerche with "duo eius filii Gauffridus et Hugo", by charter dated 1156, witnessed by “Mauricius de Credone...[644]m MARQUISE de Craon, daughter of HUGUES Seigneur de Craon & his second wife Marquise ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1162 under which "Mauritius de Credonio" donated property to "monachis sancti Melanii", at the request of "Marquisiæ matris meæ et Gaufredi de Poëncio nepotis mei et Paganus de Vegia", signed by "Gaufrido de Poencio nepote meo, Hugone de Guirchia fratre suo, Pagano de Vegia et Marquisia matre mea eius uxore…"[645].  Her husband is identified from reading this charter with the charter dated 1156 in which he and their two older sons are named.  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.   Hugues & his wife had three children: 

a)         GEOFFROY de la Guerche [de Pouancé] (-[1195]).  "Dominus de Guerchia [...Guillelmus]", on leaving for Jerusalem, donated property to Saint Nicolas de Guerche with "duo eius filii Gauffridus et Hugo", by charter dated 1156, witnessed by “Mauricius de Credone...[646]"Mauritius de Credonio" donated property to "monachis sancti Melanii", at the request of "Marquisiæ matris meæ et Gaufredi de Poëncio nepotis mei et Paganus de Vegia", by charter dated 1162 signed by "Gaufrido de Poencio nepote meo, Hugone de Guirchia fratre suo, Pagano de Vegia et Marquisia matre mea eius uxore…"[647]m ---.  The name of Geoffroy´s wife is not known.  His identification, and that of his descendants, with Pouancé suggests that he may have inherited the seigneurie by right of his wife.  Geoffroy & his wife had one child:

Four brothers.  Their parentage has not been identified.  Considering the chronology of the marriage of Geoffroy with Emma de Château-Gonthier, his birth could be estimated to [1230].  If that is correct, there is no obvious fit with the earlier la Guerche/Pouancé family which is shown above: 

1.         GEOFFROY de Pouancé (-after 4 May 1263)Seigneur de la GuercheThe testament of "Gaufridus de Poenceio", dated 4 May 1263, which names "…Petrum de Poncé militem, Hugonem et Theobaldum de Poencé, fratres meos…" among his executors, and gives "filia mea primogenita…in custodia domini Guidonis de Valle militis"[673]m as her first husband, EMMA [Anne] de Château-Gonthier, daughter of JACQUES Seigneur Château-Gonthier et de Nogent-le-Rotrou & his wife Avoise de Laval (-after Feb 1268).  "Petrus filius Johannis comitis Britanie" granted "castellaniam de Veuz" to "Anne uxori Girardi Chabotz domini Radesiarum, filie primogenite deffuncti Jacobi quondam domini Castri Gonterii et Nogenti Rotrodi" in exchange for "castro…de Nogento Rotrodi" by charter dated 13 Jun 1265[674].  "Emme fille e heir feu James de Cheteau Gontier, femme jadis feu Gefrei de Pouencé" donated "la chastelenie de Veuz" to "Girart Chabot son…espous" by charter dated Jan 1266[675].  A charter dated Feb 1268 records an agreement between "Jehanne de Poencé fille et hoir feu Jeffroy de Poencé" and "Girart Chabot seigneur de Rays et de Chasteaugontier et Emme sa femme, jadis femme dudit feu Jeffroy" concerning the dower of Emma[676].  She married secondly ([4 May 1263/13 Jun 1265]) as his first wife, Gérard [II] Chabot.  "Emma domina Castri Gonterii" donated "terciam partem tocius terre mee" to "Girardo Chaboz valleto domino Radesiarum" if "Theobaldi filii mei" died without heirs by charter dated Dec 1268[677].  "Girart Chabotz chevalier sire de Rays et de Machecoul" donated income from "Port Durant à Coiron en Chevecher", previously enjoyed by "Brient Beuf ot en mariaige o…Bellassez jadiz sa femme, seur dud…Girart", to "Jehan de Coché, vallet, sgr de la Benaste et Eustaice sa femme, fille dud…Girart", and to Eustachie "la terre dever feue Anne jadis sa mère" while reserving rights to "Jehan de Beaumont et Jehanne de Pancé sa femme, fille de lad. Anne et seur à lad. Eustaice", by charter dated Mar 1285[678].  The confusion in the different sources between Anne and Emma as the name of the first wife of Gérard [II] Chabot is probably due to transcription errors, as the two names probably appear similar in original manuscripts.  The difficulty is knowing which was her correct name.  Geoffroy & his wife had one child: 

a)         JEANNE de la Guerche (-after 19 Jan 1290).  Dame de la Guerche, de Pouancé, et de Château-Gonthier.  The marriage contract of Philippe...Rois de France...Robert de Beaumont son neveu...Jehan de Beaumont chevalier pere dudit Robert” and “damoiselle Marie de Craon” is dated Aug 1299, recording that “Jehanne de Poencé jadis mere dudit Robert et fame audit Jehan” had bequeathed all her inheritance to her husband[679]m (26 Sep 1285) as his first wife, JEAN de Beaumont, son of LOUIS de Brienne "d´Acre" Vicomte de Beaumont-en-Maine & his wife Agnes de Beaumont (-1306, bur Etival).  

2.         PIERRE de Pouancé (-after 4 May 1263).  The testament of "Gaufridus de Poenceio", dated 4 May 1263, which names "…Petrum de Poncé militem, Hugonem et Theobaldum de Poencé, fratres meos…" among his executors, and gives "filia mea primogenita…in custodia domini Guidonis de Valle militis"[680]

3.         HUGUES de Pouancé (-after 4 May 1263).  The testament of "Gaufridus de Poenceio", dated 4 May 1263, which names "…Petrum de Poncé militem, Hugonem et Theobaldum de Poencé, fratres meos…" among his executors, and gives "filia mea primogenita…in custodia domini Guidonis de Valle militis"[681]

4.         THIBAUT de Pouancé (-after 4 May 1263).  The testament of "Gaufridus de Poenceio", dated 4 May 1263, which names "…Petrum de Poncé militem, Hugonem et Theobaldum de Poencé, fratres meos…" among his executors, and gives "filia mea primogenita…in custodia domini Guidonis de Valle militis"[682]

F.      SEIGNEURS de MONTFORT [en-BRETAGNE]

 

 

According to the Complete Peerage, this family descended in the male line from Raoul de Gaël, son of Ralph Earl of Norfolk & his wife Emma of Hereford[708].  The precise descent has not been traced.  From a chronological point of view, it seems possible that Guillaume [I] de Montfort was the son of Raoul de Gaël. 

 

[Three or more] brothers:

ROBERT de Vitré, son of TRISCAN de Vitré & his wife Enoguen de Fougères (-27 Jul [1090]).  A charter dated to [1030/45] records the purchase by Marmoutier of land granted by "Rivallon le Vicaire" to "Urvodius", tutor to "son fils Gautier", approved by "Driscan, frère de Gautier et…Robert son fils"[776].  A charter dated to [1045/90] records a donation to Marmoutier by "Rivallon le Vicaire, grand-père de Robert I de Vitré"[777].  "Robert I de Vitré fils d´Enoguen, époux de Berthe, père d´André et de Robert" donated property to Marmoutier by charter dated to [1064/76][778]Seigneur de Vitré.  The Chronique de Normandie, based on le Roman de Rou, names "le sire de Vittry" among those who took part in the conquest of England in 1066[779].  A charter dated to [1070/75] records an agreement between the monks of Sainte-Croix and the canons of Notre-Dame de Vitré, with the consent of "domino Roberto et filiis eius Andrea…et Roberto"[780].  A charter dated to [1110] recalls the foundation of Sainte-Croix de Vitré by "Robertus de Vitriaco" with the consent of "Inoguende matre eius et Berta conjuge ipsius cum filiis suis Andrea et Roberto", and the later confirmation by "Andreas dominus Vitriaci castri et frater eius Philippus et uxor ipsius Andreæ…Agnes, cum filiis suis Roberto, Gervasio et Elia"[781]

m firstly --- de Craon, daughter of GUERIN de Craon & his wife --- (-[before 3 Mar 1070]).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 3 Mar 1070 under which her son-in-law "Rainaldus filius Roberti Burgundionis et uxor mea Eunoguena filia Roberti de Vitreio, nata de ipsius legali coniuge filia…Warini, naturalis hæredis et domini Credonensis honoris" confirmed the possession of "ecclesia Sancti Clementis…apud Credonum" to La Trinité de Vendôme[782].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.  Under the scenario set out in this document, "Berthe" was the name of Robert de Vitré´s second wife and no primary source has yet been found which indicates that this was also the name of his first wife.  The charter dated 3 Mar 1070 suggests that --- de Craon may have died before that date, otherwise it is unclear why she would not have issued the charter in her own name (together with her husband, who was still living).  The issue is not free from all doubt as the phrase "domini Credonensis honoris" in the document appears to apply to "Warini", not to Renaud.  Nevertheless, the fact that Renaud inherited Craon through his wife indicates that Enoguen must have been the sole heir of Robert de Vitré´s marriage to the heiress of Craon and that his other children, whose possible inheritance of Craon never seems to have been raised, were born from a different marriage.  Her son-in-law is named "Raynaldus castri Credonensis dominus" in a charter dated 26 Jan 1078[783], which demonstrates that his mother-in-law must certainly have died by then. 

m secondly BERTHE, daughter of --- (-after 1093).  "Robert I de Vitré fils d´Enoguen, époux de Berthe, père d´André et de Robert" donated property to Marmoutier by charter dated to [1064/76][784].  Broussillon argues convincingly that Berthe, mother of Robert´s two sons André and Robert, could not have been Berthe de Craon, otherwise Craon would not have been inherited by Robert´s daughter, which inheritance was unchallenged by the Vitré family[785].  A charter dated to [1110] recalls the foundation of Sainte-Croix de Vitré by "Robertus de Vitriaco" with the consent of "Inoguende matre eius et Berta conjuge ipsius cum filiis suis Andrea et Roberto"[786].  "A. de Vitreio et B. mater eius" asked the abbot of Saint-Aubin d´Angers to celebrate a mass "XV Kal Sep" each year for the anniversary of "Roberti fratris mei", by charter dated to [1093/1106][787]

Robert & his first wife had one child: 

1.         ENOGUEN [Domita] de Vitré (-after 28 Jan 1078).  "Rainaldus filius Roberti Burgundionis et uxor mea Eunoguena filia Roberti de Vitreio, nata de ipsius legali coniuge filia…Warini, naturalis hæredis et domini Credonensis honoris" confirmed the possession of "ecclesia Sancti Clementis…apud Credonum" to La Trinité de Vendôme by charter dated 3 Mar 1070[788].  Heiress of Craon.  "Raynaldus castri Credonensis dominus et…uxor mea…Ennoguena cognomina Domitilla" donated was shields to La Trinité de Vendôme by charter dated 26 Jan 1078[789].  "Raginaldus cognomina Burgundus de Credone castro et uxor mea…Domita et filius meus Mauricius" donated property to Saint-Aubin d'Angers in honour of "patris mei Rotberti" by charter dated Oct 1080[790]m RENAUD de Nevers, son of ROBERT "le Bourguignon" de Nevers & his first wife Avoie [Blanche] du Maine (-Dec 1101). 

Robert & his second wife had three children: 

2.         ANDRE [I] de Vitré (-after 1139).  "Robert I de Vitré fils d´Enoguen, époux de Berthe, père d´André et de Robert" donated property to Marmoutier by charter dated to [1064/76][791].  A charter dated to [1070/75] records an agreement between the monks of Sainte-Croix and the canons of Notre-Dame de Vitré, with the consent of "domino Roberto et filiis eius Andrea…et Roberto"[792]Seigneur de Vitré.  "A. de Vitreio et B. mater eius" asked the abbot of Saint-Aubin d´Angers to celebrate a mass "XV Kal Sep" each year for the anniversary of "Roberti fratris mei", by charter dated to [1093/1106][793].  A charter dated to [1110] records that "Andreas dominus Vitriaci castri et frater eius Philippus et uxor ipsius Andreæ…Agnes, cum filiis suis Roberto, Gervasio et Elia" confirmed the foundation of Sainte-Croix de Vitré[794]m AGNES de Mortain, daughter of ROBERT Comte de Mortain & his first wife Mathilde de Montgommery (-[maybe after 1126/27]).  Robert of Torigny names "unum filium Guillermum et tres filias" as the children of "Robertus comes Moritonii uterinus frater Willermi regis", specifying that one unnamed daughter (mentioned first) married "Andreas de Vitreio"[795].  A charter dated to [1110] records that "Andreas dominus Vitriaci castri et frater eius Philippus et uxor ipsius Andreæ…Agnes, cum filiis suis Roberto, Gervasio et Elia" confirmed the foundation of Sainte-Croix de Vitré[796].  It is possible that Agnes de Mortain was “Agnete amita mea” in the following charter: “Willelmus...dux Aquitanorum” donated “ecclesiam S.
