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.
