The county of Atuyer evolved in the pagus Attoariorum, also known as Hattuarii and Atoariensis, which lay west of the river Saône and comprised the eastern part of the archdeaconate of Dijon (in the diocesis of Langres) and the archdeaconate of Oscheret (diocesis of Chalon).  The pagus owed its name to the Hattuarii, a Germanic people who also founded the pagus Hattuariensis north of Köln.  Its territory was reduced to the area later covered by the doyennés of Fouvent and Bèze after the separation of the pagus Oscarensis, dated to [836/52][1].  As shown below, the comtes d’Atuyer are named in primary sources from the late 9th to the mid-11th centuries.  After that date, the county was presumably subsumed into the neighbouring county of Dijon or formed part of the territory governed directly by the dukes of Burgundy.  The Chronicle of Saint-Pierre de Bèze records the foundation of the monastery of Saint-Pierre de Bèze "inter fluvium…Araris et Sagunna, et fluvium…Tyla…qui Besuus dicitur", a location within the county of Atuyer[2].  This document also shows the Seigneurs de Dampierre-sur-Salon and the Seigneurs de Fouvent, whose seigneuries were located in the area of Atuyer.

HUGUES [II] de Dijon, son of HUGUES [I] Comte de Dijon & his wife Adalburgis --- The Chronicle of St Pierre de Bèze records a donation by "Gibuinus et neptis mea Eraungardis" made "pro remedio animæ fratris mei Hugonis" which also names "Gibuini proavi mei et filii eius Hugonis…et Hugonis patris mei" and "fratres mei Hugo et Wido" and "sponso eius [nepti] Fulcone"[3], undated but placed in the compilation several pages after the record of another donation dated 1043.  The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records the death of "Hugo comes Divionensis" and a donation by "Adalburgis comitissa uxor eius" for his soul "cum laude filiorum ipsius Gibuini Catalauennsis Episcopi et Richardi qui post eum hunc tenuit comitatum et Hugonis Attoariorum comitis", the brothers later in the same passage recorded as having donated further land "post obitum matris"[4]Comte d'Atuyer.  Seigneur de Beaumont. 

m ERMENGARD, daughter of ---.  The Chronicle of St Pierre de Bèze records a donation by "nobilis matrona Ermengardis" made "pro remedio animæ…senioris sui Hugonis, filiique sui Widonis…defunctus" naming "filii ipsius Hugo et Nerduinus simul Gibuinus", undated and with little clues as to the date from adjacent records of donations[5].  "Gibuinus" restored property "predium…Vuarua" to Dijon Saint-Etienne, bought by "pater meus Hugo comes" and donated for the souls of "patris mei Hugonis comitis et matris mee Hermingardis et fratris mei Norduini et filiorum eius Odonis et Hugonis", and made a donation "pro Hugone nepote meo", by undated charter, signed by "Roberti ducis et uxoris sue…"[6], dated to [1034] by Petit[7].  The unusual name "Narduin" given to her son suggests that she may be Ermengard, daughter of Narduin & his wife Odilia ---, but there is no proof that this is correct.  This hypothesis also appears sustainable from a chronological point of view, although no dates are known for either Hugues or his wife. 

Comte Hugues [II] & his wife had four children:

A.      SEIGNEURS de DAMPIERRE-sur-SALON

 

 

Dampierre-sur-Salon is located north of the river Saône, about 5 kilometres south of Fouvent, in the present-day French département of Haute-Saône, arrondissement Vesoul.  Not enough primary sources have been identified to attempt a reliable reconstruction of the Dampierre-sur-Salon family before the late 12th and after the mid-13th centuries. 

 

 

Four brothers, parents not yet identified: 

1.         RICHARD [I] de Dampìerre-sur-Salon (-after 1201)Coudriet & Châtelet record that “Richard I de Dampierre” left on crusade in 1201 “avec ses trois frères Odet, Renaud et Guy”, without citing the primary source which confirms this information[36]m [as her [first/second] husband, ---.  The primary source which confirms the identity of Richard’s wife has not been found.  An interesting possibility is raised by the following: Coudriet & Châtelet state that “les chartes” confirm “Richard II de Dampierre” as brother of Simon [III] de Sexfontaines, without citing the charters in question[37].  The authors assume that Richard [I] de Dampierre-sur-Salon was the father of the two brothers, which seems inconsistent with the partial reconstruction of the Sexfontaines family shown in the document CHAMPAGNE - BASSIGNY & BOLENOIS.  Another possible explanation (assuming that such charters do in fact confirm the relationship) is that they were uterine brothers, in which case the wife of Richard [I] de Dampierre-sur-Salon married [firstly/secondly] --- de Sexfontaines.  If that is correct, insufficient data is available to indicate whether Richard was her first or second husband.  Richard [I] & his wife had one child: 

a)         RICHARD [II] de Dampierre-sur-Salon (-after Oct 1235).  "Richardus dominus Domine Petre" sold property "apud Monmancon" to Montiéramey, with the consent of “Sibille uxoris mee et filiorum meorum Odonis et Galteri et filiarum mearum Beatricis et Johannete et domini Guichardi militis mariti Beatricis”, by charter dated Oct 1235[38]m SIBYLLE, daughter of ---.  "Richardus dominus Domine Petre" sold property "apud Monmancon" to Montiéramey, with the consent of “Sibille uxoris mee et filiorum meorum Odonis et Galteri et filiarum mearum Beatricis et Johannete et domini Guichardi militis mariti Beatricis”, by charter dated Oct 1235[39].  Richard & his wife had four children: 

i)          EUDES de Dampierre-sur-Salon"Richardus dominus Domine Petre" sold property "apud Monmancon" to Montiéramey, with the consent of “Sibille uxoris mee et filiorum meorum Odonis et Galteri et filiarum mearum Beatricis et Johannete et domini Guichardi militis mariti Beatricis”, by charter dated Oct 1235[40]

iv)       JEANNE de Dampierre-sur-Salon"Richardus dominus Domine Petre" sold property "apud Monmancon" to Montiéramey, with the consent of “Sibille uxoris mee et filiorum meorum Odonis et Galteri et filiarum mearum Beatricis et Johannete et domini Guichardi militis mariti Beatricis”, by charter dated Oct 1235[43]

3.         RENAUD de Dampierre-sur-SalonCoudriet & Châtelet record that “Richard I de Dampierre” left on crusade in 1201 “avec ses trois frères Odet, Renaud et Guy”, without citing the primary source which confirms this information[45]

4.         GUY de Dampierre-sur-Salon .  Coudriet & Châtelet record that “Richard I de Dampierre” left on crusade in 1201 “avec ses trois frères Odet, Renaud et Guy”, without citing the primary source which confirms this information[46]

 

 

 

B.      SEIGNEURS de FOUVENT

 

 

Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Fonsvennæ...”, by bull dated [1105][47]

1.         GERARD [II] de Fouvent (-1032 or after)Europäische Stammtafeln names Gérard [II] as son of Gérard [I] de Fouvent[49], but the primary source on which this affiliation is based has not been identified.  Gérard [II]'s supposed son, Hubert, is referred to as nepos of Aimon [I] Comte d'Auxois in the latter's 1004 testament, but the family relationship could have been through Gérard [II], his wife Gertrude or through Aimon's unknown wife.  Seigneur de FouventThe Chronicon Besuense notes a donation of property “terræ apud Artionis…villam quam de hereditate Geretrudis uxoris suæ” by “Girardus Fontis-vennæ castri dominus” dated 1019, signed by “Girardus Comes Fontis-vennæ…Hugo comes…[50].  The Chronicon Besuense notes a donation of property by “Girardus…cum Gertrude uxore mea” dated 1 May 1020, signed by “Girardi, Gertrudis, Girardi Clerici, Humberti filiorum eorum…[51]m GERTRUDE, daughter of [AIMON [I] Comte d'Auxois & his wife ---].  She is named Gertrude de Lavoncourt in Europäische Stammtafeln[52], but the primary source on which this is based has not been identified.  The mother of "…Hubertus, Gerardus, Helinnanus nepotes eius…" who subscribed the testament of "Aymo…comitatus Alsinses atque Dusmensis" dated 17 Mar 1004[53] could have been the testator's sister, but the family relationship could also have been through Gertrude’s husband or through Aimon's unknown wife.  No other primary source has been identified which confirms a relationship between the Fouvent and Duesmois families.  "Girardus Fontisvennæ dominus" founded the church of Fouvent, "apud Artionis-curtem villam, quam de hereditate Gertrudis uxoris suæ", by charter dated 3 May 1019[54]The Chronicon Besuense notes a donation of property “ecclesie in comitatu Atoariensi” by “miles quidam…Girardus” with the consent of “uxoris suæ…Gertrudis et filii sui Humberti[55].  The Chronicon Besuense notes a donation of property by “Girardus…cum Gertrude uxore mea” dated 1 May 1020, signed by “Girardi, Gertrudis, Girardi Clerici, Humberti filiorum eorum…[56]Gérard [II] & his wife had [seven] children:

b)         GERARD de Fouvent (-killed 1030).  The Chronicon Besuense notes a donation of property by “Girardus…cum Gertrude uxore mea” dated 1 May 1020, signed by “Girardi, Gertrudis, Girardi Clerici, Humberti filiorum eorum…[58]The testament of "Aymo…comitatus Alsinses atque Dusmensis" dated 17 Mar 1004 is recorded in the cartulary of the abbey of Flavigny, subscribed by "Gualo filius eius, Vualterius filius eius, Hubertus, Gerardus, Helinnanus nepotes eius…Gerardi vicecomitis"[59].  Cousin of the brothers Walo and Gautier (sons of Aimon [I] Comte d'Auxois) with whom he acted in 1020[60], and assumed therefore to be the brother of "Humbert" although direct proof of this has not been found.  Cleric. 

c)         HALINARD de Fouvent .  The testament of "Aymo…comitatus Alsinses atque Dusmensis" dated 17 Mar 1004 is recorded in the cartulary of the abbey of Flavigny, subscribed by "Gualo filius eius, Vualterius filius eius, Hubertus, Gerardus, Helinnanus nepotes eius…Gerardi vicecomitis"[61].  He is assumed to be the brother of Hubert and Gerard although there is no proof that this is correct.
