The pagus Alsensis (Auxois) and the pagus Duismensis (Duesmois) were two of the five pagi situated within the diocese of Autun (which depended from the archbishopric of Lyon) in the central part of the medieval duchy of Burgundy.  The former, originally known as the pagus Alesiensis, was centred around Alise-Sainte-Reine.  It lay between the source of the river Seine to the east and straddled the river Armançon to the west.  The pagus Alsensis evolved into the county of Auxois.  Duesmois,  named after Duesme which in modern times is a small village in the canton of Aignay-le-Duc, lay to the north-east of Auxois, spreading around the upper reaches and source of the Seine.  By the early 11th century, Auxois was subsumed into Duesmois[1].  The influence of the bishopric of Langres was strong in the area, as confirmed by Pope Pascal II confirming the possession of numerous castles to the bishop including “...castrum Duisme...”, by bull dated [1105][2].  No reference has been found to the Auxois/Duesmois comital family later than the mid-11th century and it is assumed either that the county was subsumed into the territories ruled directly by the dukes of Burgundy or that the bishop of Langres was the principle fief-holder. 

 

The pagus Avalensis (Avalois) was located west of Auxois from the Serein river westwards as far as the Yonne, and straddling the Cure river basin.  The town of Avallon was situated in the northern part of Avallois.  No trace has been found of Avalois having developed into a separate county ruled by its own counts.  It is assumed that the territory formed part of the area ruled directly by the dukes of Burgundy.

Two possible siblings:

1.         ---.  The name of Alquidis’s husband has not been traced.  m ALQUIDIS, daughter of ---.  Her name is confirmed by the charter dated Aug 1000 under which "Milo nobili ortus progenie" donated property to the abbey of Flavigny, including the donation supported by "Aymone…comite" of property which "mater sua Alquidis" gave to "filie sue Eldesnodi"[3].  Alquidis & her husband had [three] children: 

a)         AIMON [I] (-17 Mar 1004 or after).  He is named with his son Walo in a charter of Hugues Duke of Burgundy dated in the 980s, and was called Comte d'Auxois in a source dated 992[4].  "Milo nobili ortus progenie" donated property, including the donation supported by "Aymone…comite" of property which "mater sua Alquidis" gave to "filie sue Eldesnodi", to the abbey of Flavigny by charter dated Aug 1000 subscribed by "Aymo comes Alsinsis eius consanguineus"[5].  "Comes Alsensis comitatus" restored rights to the abbey of Flavigny by charter dated 3 Apr 1002[6].  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"[7]m ---.  The name of Aimon's wife is not known.  Aimon [I] & his wife had [four] children: 

i)          [AIMON [II] .  Aimon's parentage is uncertain.  "Miles nobilis stemmatis linea progenitus…Vualo…cum sua iugali…Iudith" donated a serf to the abbey of Flavigny by undated charter[8].  It is noted in the compilation that Duchesne adds a list of signatories to this charter, which does not appear in any of the surviving manuscripts, which includes "Vualonis, Iudith uxoris eius, Aymonis comitis fratris eius qui consensit, Hervei fratris eius alterius…"[9].  If this is genuine, it suggests that Aimon was older than his brother Gauthier because of his position in the list.  His title "comitis" suggests that he was his father's eldest son, but if that is correct it is curious that he is not named in any of his supposed father's charters and in particular does not appear in his father's 1004 testament.]  same person as...?  AIMON (-before [1034/46]).  No primary source has been found which corroborates Aimon [II]’s suggested co-identity with Aimon Comte de Bolenois.  The names of the latter’s two sons are not found in the known members of the Auxois/Duesmois comital family.  In addition, Bolenois is located some distance from Duesmois, although it would not be unusual for the same family to acquire castles in different counties by inheritance, marriage, or purchase.  Comte de Bolenois.  . 

[-        COMTES de BOLENOIS.] 

ii)         WALO (-1020 or after).  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"[10].  "Garnerius et frater eius Aldo" donated “alodium...conjacet in loco...Mortariis in comitatu Divionensi” to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon, with the consent of “Vualone comite et fratre eius Vualterio”, by charter dated to [1004/16][11].  "Walo vocatus comes et fratre meus Walterius et Warnerius Sembernonis atque Humbertus advocatus seu frater eius Girardus" donated property to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon by charter dated 1020 signed in different groups by "Vualonis quondam comitis et uxoris eius Judith et filiorum eius Aymonis atque Hugonis, Vualterii fratris eius", by "Vuarnerii et uxoris eius Istiburgis et filiarum eius Anne et Addile", and by "Humberti advocati et uxoris eius Ermentrude et filii eius Hileranni, Girardi fratris eius, Bertrade sororis eius, Tetbaldi nepotis eius"[12]m JUDITH, daughter of ---.  "Walo vocatus comes et fratre meus Walterius et Warnerius Sembernonis atque Humbertus advocatus seu frater eius Girardus" donated property to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon by charter dated 1020 signed by "Vualonis quondam comitis et uxoris eius Judith et filiorum eius Aymonis atque Hugonis, Vualterii fratris eius"[13].  "Miles nobilis stemmatis linea progenitus…Vualo…cum sua iugali…Iudith" donated a serf to the abbey of Flavigny by undated charter[14]m ---.  The name of Walo's wife is not known.  Walo & his wife had two children:

(a)       AIMON (-after 1020).  "Walo vocatus comes et fratre meus Walterius et Warnerius Sembernonis atque Humbertus advocatus seu frater eius Girardus" donated property to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon by charter dated 1020 signed by "Vualonis quondam comitis et uxoris eius Judith et filiorum eius Aymonis atque Hugonis, Vualterii fratris eius"[15]

(b)       HUGUES (-after 1020).  "Walo vocatus comes et fratre meus Walterius et Warnerius Sembernonis atque Humbertus advocatus seu frater eius Girardus" donated property to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon by charter dated 1020 signed by "Vualonis quondam comitis et uxoris eius Judith et filiorum eius Aymonis atque Hugonis, Vualterii fratris eius"[16]

iii)        GAUTHIER (-1020 or after).  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"[17].  "Garnerius et frater eius Aldo" donated “alodium...conjacet in loco...Mortariis in comitatu Divionensi” to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon, with the consent of “Vualone comite et fratre eius Vualterio”, by charter dated to [1004/16][18].  "Walo vocatus comes et fratre meus Walterius et Warnerius Sembernonis atque Humbertus advocatus seu frater eius Girardus" donated property to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon by charter dated 1020 signed by "Vualonis quondam comitis et uxoris eius Judith et filiorum eius Aymonis atque Hugonis, Vualterii fratris eius"[19]

iv)       [HERVE .  Hervé’s parentage is not certain.  "Miles nobilis stemmatis linea progenitus…Vualo…cum sua iugali…Iudith" donated a serf to the abbey of Flavigny by undated charter[20].  It is noted in the compilation that Duchesne adds a list of signatories to this charter, which does not appear in any of the surviving manuscripts, which includes "Vualonis, Iudith uxoris eius, Aymonis comitis fratris eius qui consensit, Hervei fratris eius alterius…"[21].] 

b)         [GERTRUDE .  The mother of "…Hubertus, Gerardus, Helinnanus nepotes eius…" who subscribed the testament of "Aymo…comitatus Alsinses atque Dusmensis" dated 17 Mar 1004[22] 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[23].  Dame d'Arsincourt.  m GERARD [II] de Fouvent, son of --- (-1032 or after).]

2.         [---.  m ---.]  [Two] children: 

a)         MILO (-after Aug 1000).  "Aymo comes Alsinsis eius consanguineus" subscribed the charter dated Aug 1000 by which "Milo nobili ortus progenie" donated property to the abbey of Flavigny for the soul of "nepotis sui…Aymonis Pilo" who was killed "apud castrum Grinionem"[25].  The precise relationship between the two is not known. 

b)         [---.  m ---.]  One child: 

i)          AIMON "Pilus" (-killed Grignon castle before Aug 1000).  "Aymo comes Alsinsis eius consanguineus" subscribed the charter dated Aug 1000 by which "Milo nobili ortus progenie" donated property to the abbey of Flavigny for the soul of "nepotis sui…Aymonis Pilo" who was killed "apud castrum Grinionem"[26].  The precise relationship between the two is not known.

A.      SEIGNEURS de MONTREAL

 

 

The town now called Montréal en Bourgogne is located near Avallon.  As shown below, it is possible that the medieval seigneurs de Montréal formed a branch of the family of the seigneurs de Chacenay in the county of Bar-sur-Seine, Champagne.  The marriage alliances of the seigneurs de Montréal suggest that they enjoyed a position of some prominence in the local Burgundian nobility.  The properties of the Montréal family were confiscated by Louis IX King of France in 1255 because of the behaviour of Anséric [V] Seigneur de Montréal, as described below.  Montréal was later acquired by Hugues IV Duke of Burgundy who granted it to his son Hugues in 1272.  After his daughter Beatrix died when still a child in 1291, the territory was inherited by her paternal aunt Marguerite, wife of Jean de Chalon Seigneur d’Arlay. 

 

 

HUGUES de Chacenay, son of MILON Seigneur de Chacenay & his wife Adelaide --- ).  "Milo de Cacenniaco et Adelaidis uxor eius et filius eorum Hugo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 26 Dec, dated to [1084/1107][27]same person as…?  HUGUES (-after 9 Apr 1119).  Hugues Seigneur de Montréal is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln as the same person as the son of Milon Seigneur de Chacenay[28].  The primary source which confirms this co-identity has not been identified, although the use of the name Anséric in both families suggests a close connection.   Seigneur de Montréal.  “...Hugo de Monteregali, Hugo de Tilio...” subscribed the charter dated 1113 which records a dispute between the monks of Flavigny and “Hugo de Merlenniaco filius Tetbaldi Rufi advocati[29].  “Petrus de Monteregali clericus et canonicus Augustudensis, filius Gauterii de Turre” donated “molendinum...binomius...Fragineus...Sagitta” for his entry into Fontemoy abbey, with the consent of “domino Montisregalis...Hugone”, by charter dated 1 Jul 1115[30].  “Hugo de Monteregali dominus et uxor eius Aluysa” donated “terram...Campum-Leuve...juxta fluvium...Senain” to Fontemoy abbey by charter dated 9 Apr 1119[31]

m as her first husband, HELVIDE de Baudémont, daughter of ANDRE de Baudémont Seneschal de Champagne & his wife Agnes --- (-1165).  “Hugo de Monteregali dominus et uxor eius Aluysa” donated “terram...Campum-Leuve...juxta fluvium...Senain” to Fontemoy abbey by charter dated 9 Apr 1119[32]"Domina Montis Regali…Alaisa" ratified donations to Fontenoy after the death of "viri sui Hugonis" by undated charter[33]She married secondly ([1120/25]) Guy [I] Seigneur de Dampierre et de Saint-Dizier Vicomte de Troyes.  "Eluidis Montis regali domina" donated property to Jully-les-Nonnains, with the consent of "Anserici filii sui", by charter dated 1129[34][Willelmus de Teliciaco” consented to the donation of “terra Ulduni” to Fontemoy abbey by “dominus Landricus de Praiaco” by charter dated to [1130/34] “in aula...domini Widonis Montisregali domini[35].  It is likely that the last-named was the second husband of Helvide de Baudémont, acting as seigneur de Montréal during the continued minority of her son by her first marriage.]  "Guido de Dampetra…et uxor eius…Elvidis et filii Anserici et Guillelmus" approved the donation by "Lethericus de Baudimonto" to the Templars at Provins, by charter dated 1133[36].  "Aelidis uxor Widonis domini de Brana post mortem viri sui…Guidonis" donated "census…Branæ castri et Branellæ villæ" to the Premonstré abbey, with the consent of "patre eorum Andrea de Baldimento et matre eorum Agnetis et ipsorum fratre Waleranno Vrsicampi abbate et sororibus eorum Helwide et Hubelina et earum maritis Waltero comiti de Brienna et Guidone de Dampierre" (although the names of the brothers-in-law are reversed in this document), by charter dated 1144[37].  "Simon dominus Belfortis" donated property to Chapelle-aux-Planches by charter dated 1152 in which he names "Hugone fratre meo domino de Brecis", in the presence of "domini Wilermi domini de Dampetra […et Heleidis mater eius…] et Milonis de Planceii"[38].  "Hadevilde ctssa de Dampierre, Helye Renaud son avunculus…Beatrix femme d'Helye" witnessed a declaration by Bozon Bishop of Chalon dated 1157 concerning a donation to the priory of Ulmoy by Guérau de Orchara[39]

Hugues & his wife had [two] children: 

1.         ANSERIC [I] de Montréal ([1119/23]-25 or 26 Jan 1174).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Anserici, Guilelmi, Andree et Milonis" as brothers of "Guido de Dampetra" Bishop of Chalon[40], the first named being the older uterine brother of the last three.  Anséric [I] may have been a minor until the early 1140s, probably born at the end of his father’s life: the first source in which he is named as seigneur de Montréal is dated 1145, earlier charters naming as seigneur Guy, who is assumed to have been Anséric’s stepfather who would have held the seigneurie in his stepson’s place until he reached the age of majority.  "Eluidis Montis regali domina" donated property to Jully-les-Nonnains, with the consent of "Anserici filii sui", by charter dated 1129[41]"Guido de Dampetra…et uxor eius…Elvidis et filii Anserici et Guillelmus" approved the donation by "Lethericus de Baudimonto" to the Templars at Provins, by charter dated 1133[42]Seigneur de Montréal.  Seigneur de Montmirail, de iure uxoris.  "Ansericus de Monteregio" donated property which stretched from "Nentri ad Trementiacum usque ad semitam...de Massengi ad Chableiam ex parte Villeri" {from the Nitry road to Tormancy as far as the Massangis way to Chablis, on the side of Villers-la-Grange} to Pontigny, with the support of “--- uxor eiusdem Anserici”, by charter dated 1145, witnessed by “Andreas de Baldament, Bernardus capellanus de Monteregio, Guido de Dompetræ et Guido filius eius...Garnerius de Dompetræ...[43].  A charter dated 1145 records an agreement between Pontigny abbey and Auxerre Saint-Germain concerning property donated by “Ansericus de Monteregali[44].  "Ansericus de Monteregali" confirmed the donation of pasturage and other rights to Reigny abbey, made by “pater eius Hugo et mater eius Aluisa”, before leaving for Jerusalem with Louis VII King of France by charter dated 1147[45].  Sénéchal de Bourgogne.  “...Anserico senescalco...” witnessed the charter dated 1150 under which Eudes II Duke of Burgundy donated property held by “domnus Regnerius de Rupe senescaldus meus” to the abbey of Puy-d’Orbe[46].  “Ansericus Montisregii dominus” recorded an agreement between the monks of Pontigny and “dominum Manasserium socerum meum” relating to “prato...supra Marsegni” which the latter had claimed, by charter dated to [1150][47].  A charter dated 1153 records the presence of "...Ansericus dominus Montisregalis et uxor eius Adelaidis..." at the donation of land near “boscum domini Montisregalis” to Reigny abbey made by “Ivo de Avalone...[48].  "Ansericus de Monteregali…Ansericus filius eius…Johannes minor frater eiusdem et eorum mater Aalidis, Heluis filia eius" attested the donation to Reigny by "Ivo de Avalone" by charter dated 1164[49].  “Ansericus dominus Montisregalis” recorded an agreement with Reigny abbey, with the consent of “Aalaydis uxor mea et Ansericus et Johannes filii mei et Sibilla predicti Anserici filii mei uxor”, by charter dated 1170[50].  "Ansericus de Monteregali" donated property to the church of Notre-Dame de Montréal, for the soul of "Alaydis uxoris meæ" and with the consent of "Ansericus et Johannes filii mei et Sybilla predicti Anserici uxor", by charter dated 1170[51].  The necrology of Notre-Dame de Montréal records the death "26 Jan" of "Ansericus dominus Montis Regalis, qui quatuor familias apud Sivriacum dedit" [which links with the 1170 charter quoted above][52].  The necrology of Molesme records the death "VIII Kal Feb" of "Ansericus de Monteregali qui edificavit domum Sanctimonialum"[53]m (1145 or before) as her second husband, ADELAIS de Pleurs, widow of HELIE de Montmirail, daughter of [JEAN Vicomte de Mareuil/MANASSES de Pleurs] & his wife --- de Ramerupt (-after 1170).  There is some doubt about Adelais’s parentage.  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis specifies that one daughter (unnamed, mentioned second) of "Andreas comes de Rameruth" married "Iohannes vicecomes de Maruel" by whom she had "Manassem de Plaierris et sororem eius, quam duxit Helyas de Monte-Mirail, de qua nati sunt Galcherus et Andreas et Hugo Prorulliensis abbas; defuncto vero Helia, nupsit domino de Monte-regali, cui peperit liberos"[54].  However, the charter dated to [1150] quoted below indicates that her father was Manassès (assuming that “socer” can be translated in its strict sense of father-in-law).  The date of her second marriage is set by the charter dated 1145 under which [her husband] "Ansericus de Monteregio" donated property to Pontigny, with the support of “--- uxor eiusdem Anserici[55].  The charter dated to [1150], under which “Ansericus Montisregii dominus” recorded an agreement between the monks of Pontigny and “dominum Manasserium socerum meum” relating to “prato...supra Marsegni” which the latter had claimed[56], suggests that the Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis may be inaccurate in recording the name of Anséric’s father-in-law, assuming that “socer” can be translated in its strict sense.  "...Ansericus dominus Montisregalis et uxor eius Adelaidis..." at the donation of land near “boscum domini Montisregalis” to Reigny abbey made by “Ivo de Avalone...[57].  "Ansericus de Monteregali…Ansericus filius eius…Johannes minor frater eiusdem et eorum mater Aalidis, Heluis filia eius" attested the donation to Reigny by "Ivo de Avalone" by charter dated 1164[58].  “Ansericus dominus Montisregalis” recorded an agreement with Reigny abbey, with the consent of “Aalaydis uxor mea et Ansericus et Johannes filii mei et Sibilla predicti Anserici filii mei uxor”, by charter dated 1170[59].  "Ansericus de Monteregali" donated property to the church of Notre-Dame de Montréal, for the soul of "Alaydis uxoris meæ" and with the consent of "Ansericus et Johannes filii mei et Sybilla predicti Anserici uxor", by charter dated 1170[60].  Anséric [I] & his wife had [five] children: 

a)         ANSERIC [II] de Montréal (-Acre 1191).  "Ansericus de Monteregali…Ansericus filius eius…Johannes minor frater eiusdem et eorum mater Aalidis, Heluis filia eius" attested the donation to Reigny by "Ivo de Avalone" by charter dated 1164[61]Seigneur de Montréal

-        SEIGNEURS d’ARCIS-sur-AUBE

c)         [GUILLAUME de Montréal (-30 Dec ----).  The necrology of Notre-Dame de Montréal records the death "30 Dec" of "Willelmus filius domini Anserici"[66].  The identity of Guillaume’s father, among the different seigneurs de Montréal who are named Anséric, is uncertain.] 

d)         GUY (-13 Sep 1199).  Seigneur de Beauvoir[-sur-Serain].  “Guido dominus de Bellovisu” donated harvest to Sainte-Catherine, with the consent of “Ansericus Montisregalis ad petitionem dicti Guidonis fratris nostri”, by charter dated 1179[67].  The necrology of Notre-Dame de Montréal records the death "13 Sep 1199" of "Guido de Bellovisu frater domini Anserici, domini de Monte Regali"[68].  He must have died childless as the charter dated 1221, under which “Alaydis ducissa Burgundie” acknowledged that “Ansericus dominus Montisregalis” owed hommage to “ducatus Burgundie” for “domum de Bello Visu...quo modo frater suus Guido, eam tenebat[69], indicates that his seigneurie reverted to the main Montréal line. 

e)         HELVIDE de Montréal (-before 1210).  "Ansericus de Monteregali…Ansericus filius eius…Johannes minor frater eiusdem et eorum mater Aalidis, Heluis filia eius" attested the donation to Reigny by "Ivo de Avalone" by charter dated 1164[70].  Heiress of Epoisses.  “Bernardus de Montebarro Espissiæ dominus” confirmed donations to Fontenoy made by “piæ memoiræ Helvydis mater mea in obitu suo”, by charter dated 1210[71]m ANDRÉ [I] Seigneur de Montbard, son of BERNARD [II] Seigneur de Montbard & his wife --- (-after 1166).

7.         [ELISABETH (-[5 Jan ----], after Sep 1221).  Chastellux names “Elisabeth” as the only daughter of Anseric [II] de Montréal and his wife Sibylle de Bourgogne, adding that she inherited Meursault “et la porta en dot à Robert de Grancey” whom he identifies as “Robert de Grancey chevalier troisième vicomte héréditaire de Dijon” who “assista en 1142 à la charte donnée par Hugues II duc de Bourgogne en faveur de l’abbaye de Saint-Seine[138].  Chastellux’s comments are puzzling.  The “vicomtes héréditaires de Dijon” were, at that time, members of the Champlitte family, the donation to which he refers names “...Gosberto milite Granceii...” among those present[139], and in any case no daughter of Anséric [II] could have married an individual who was already adult in 1142.  It appears that the marriage with “Robert/Gosbert” de Grancey can be dismissed.  However, the suggested link with the Champlitte/Dijon family deserves further study.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the first wife of Guillaume de Champlitte Prince of Achaia (whose son by his second marriage became vicomte de Dijon) was “Alais [de Montréal] Dame de Meursault” (no indication of the primary source on which this speculation is based)[140].  The same table shows the couple’s daughter as “Elisabeth Dame de Meursault”, who married firstly Pierre des Barres and secondly Philippe d’Antigny.  A charter dated Sep 1221, quoted below, records a donation made by an “Elisabeth Dame de Meursault” of property in Meursault and at “Thar”.  The latter is presumably identifiable as Tart, which is one of the properties held by the Montréal family.  The donation is made for the soul of the donor’s brother Guy.  The death of Guy de Montréal, son of Anséric [II], can be dated to 1221 from another source (see above).  The most likely explanation therefore appears to be that the donor was Guy’s sister Elisabeth, who was the mother of Elisabeth who later married Pierre des Barres.  If that is correct, the husband of the older Elisabeth cannot be identified.  From a chronological point of view only, he could have been Guillaume de Champlitte Prince of Achaia, assuming that the marriage to Elisabeth was terminated (Guillaume had several children by his marriage to Eustachie de Courtenay which is dated to [1200]).  The only indication of a connection with the Champlitte family is the marriage contract, dated May 1239, between “Gui de Vergy fils de Guillaume de Vergy sénéchal de Bourgogne et de Clémence sa femme” and [Elisabeth’s granddaughter] “Flore d’Antigny fille de Philippe seigneur d’Antigny et d’Elisabeth sa femme”, specifying that her father granted “ce qu’il possédait à Champlitte” as dowry[141].  Until more primary source data comes to light, the safest course is to show Elisabeth’s husband as unknown.  Dame de Meursault.  “Elisabeth domina de Muresaut” donated property “in villa mea de Muresaut...vineam meam...juxta vineam de Thar” to Cîteaux abbey, for the soul of “fratris mei Guidonis”, by charter dated Sep 1221[142].  The obituary of Cîteaux records the death “Non Jan” of “Helisabeth domina de Muressaut”, which could apply to this Elisabeth or to her daughter[143].]  m ---.  One child: 

a)         ELISABETH (-[5 Jan ----], after 1238).  Dame de Meursault.  Her family origin and two marriages are indicated by the following document: Elisabeth dame d’Antigny et de Meursault” donated revenue from property at Meursault to the abbey of la Bussière, with the consent of “Philippe d’Antigny son mari...[et] par ses enfants Gui et Alyxant dame de Noyers et par sa fille Flore qu’elle a eu dudit Philippe” by charter dated 1238[144].  The obituary of Cîteaux records the death “Non Jan” of “Helisabeth domina de Muressaut”, which could apply to this Elisabeth or to her mother[145].  m firstly PIERRE des Barres, son of GUILLAUME des Barres Seigneur d’Oissery & his second wife H--- (-[28 Sep 1233/1234]).  m secondly ([1235/36]) PHILIPPE d’Antigny, son of --- (-after Jul 1248).]

m firstly --- de Vergy, daughter of [HUGUES Seigneur de Vergy & his wife Gisle de Trainel].  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the charter dated 1221 under which [her husband] “Ansericus dominus Montisregalis” agreed to protect the commune of Dijon against “Alaydis ducissa Burgundie soror et domina mea vel Hugo filius eius nepos et dominus meus[161].  The chronology of the Vergy family suggests that Anséric [III] must have been the husband of this person.

c)         JEAN de Montréal (-before Nov 1292).  It is not certain that Jean was born from his father’s second marriage, but the chronology of his life makes this appear likely.  The bishop of Langres approved an agreement between Hugues IV Duke of Burgundy and “messire Jean de Montreal chevalier” under which the latter transferred his rights in the castles and lands of “Montreal et Chastelgirard” in return for “la Mote de Athées...et...la terre de Montréal hors la ville”, with the consent of “dame Marguerite sa femme, Guiot leur fils, Ieannette, Agnelez et Beatrix leurs filles”, by charter dated 9 Oct 1269[184].  An arrêt of Parliament dated 1 Nov 1292 ordered compensation to “Odo Bezors miles dominus de Villa-Arnulphi...et Agnete eius uxore” for transferring their part of “castro et castellaniæ Iusulæ subtus Montem-Regalem” which they had received under the succession of “defuncti Iohannis de Monteregali militis quondam patris dictæ Agnetis”, which he had inherited from “defuncto Anserico quondam domino Montisregalis”, to “Beatrice ducissa relicta Hugonis ducis Burgundiæ”, while providing for “Guido de Monteregali armiger filius Ioannis de Monteregali quondam militis...et...Beatrice relicta Iacobi domini de Rocha de Breine, sorore dicti Guidonis[185]m MARGUERITE, daughter of ---.  The bishop of Langres approved an agreement between Hugues IV Duke of Burgundy and “messire Jean de Montreal chevalier” under which the latter transferred his rights in the castles and lands of “Montreal et Chastelgirard” in return for “la Mote de Athées...et...la terre de Montréal hors la ville”, with the consent of “dame Marguerite sa femme, Guiot leur fils, Ieannette, Agnelez et Beatrix leurs filles”, by charter dated 9 Oct 1269[186].  Jean & his wife had four children:

B.      SEIGNEURS de MONT-SAINT-JEAN

 

 

Mont-Saint-Jean is today a commune in the canton of Pouilly, in the arrondissement of Beaune, west of Dijon, although many parts of the medieval fortress of that name have now fallen into ruins[203].  Flodoard records that in 924 "Raginardus" [Rainard Vicomte d’Auxerre, brother of Manassès [II] Comte de Dijon] captured "castellum…Mons sancti Iohannis" supported by "nepotum suorum, Walonis et Gisleberti", but that "Rodulfi rex" recaptured the castle later in the same year[204].  No indication has been found of when the castle was first built.  The first reference to a member of the Mont-Saint-Jean family is to Rainard, who is named in two charters dated 1076 and 1077 (see below).  His name suggests a relationship with Rainard Vicomte d’Auxerre, who may have been later regranted the castle after it was confiscated by King Raoul.  A family connection is also indicated with Rainard Vicomte de Beaune, with the common use in both families of the names Rainard and Hugues, as well as Hugues de Mont-Saint-Jean being the first lay witness in the undated notice concerning the foundation of Cîteaux issued by Rainard Vicomte de Beaune which is quoted below.  The name Aganon is also common to the Mont-Saint-Jean family and the earlier vicomtes de Beaune and seigneurs de Vergy, whose connection with Rainard Vicomte de Beaune has not yet been established, and with which there is also a possible connection with the Couches family which is named below. 

 

 

[Three] brothers: 

1.         RAINARD de Mont-Saint-Jean (-after 1077).  "Agano...Heduorum episcopus" issued judgment against “Raginardo fratre nostro”, who had taken “Beliniacum” from the church of Autun, by charter dated 15 May 1076, witnessed by “...H. de Monte sancti Johannis...[205].  "Raginardus de Monte sancti Johannis...uxoris meæ" restored property which he had taken from the church of Autun by charter dated 1077[206]

2.         AGANON de Mont-Saint-Jean (-25 Jun 1098)Bishop of Autun 1055.  "Agano...Heduorum episcopus" issued judgment against “Raginardo fratre nostro”, who had taken “Beliniacum” from the church of Autun, by charter dated 15 May 1076, witnessed by “...H. de Monte sancti Johannis...[207].  The necrology of Flavigny records the death “VII Kal Jul” of “Hagano episcopus[208]

3.         [GAUDRY de Couches (-24 Feb ----).  The necrology of Flavigny records the death “VI Kal Mar” of “Galdricus Colticensis frater domini Haganonis episcopi, conversus et monachus Flaviniacensis[209].  His different name suggests that Gaudry may have been the uterine brother of Rainard and Aganon.  Settipani records a suggestion by Chaume that a daughter of Eudes Vicomte de Beaune married "--- de Couches"[210].  However, this appears to represent a confusion with Gaudry de Couches, possible brother of Rainard de Mont-Saint-Jean and Aganon Bishop of Autun.

 

 

1.         HUGUES de Mont-Saint-Jean (-after [1100]).  “Hugo de Monte Sancti Iohannis...” witnessed a notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis"[211].  It would be consistent chronologically if Hugues [I] de Mont-Saint-Jean was the son of Rainard de Mont-Saint-Jean and father of Guy, but no primary source has been identified which confirms that this speculation is correct. 

 

 

Two possible brothers: 

1.         GUY de Mont-Saint-Jean (-[1145/52])Seigneur de Mont-Saint-Jean.  Petit states that Guy Seigneur de Mont-Saint-Jean is named in charters from 1116 to 1145[212].  An undated charter records that "Gui de Mont-Saint-Jean" made war with "les seigneurs de Frolois", during the course of which “Gui chevalier de Turcey” was wounded and afterwards donated property at Boux to the priory of Salmaise[213], which could provide the explanation for descendants of Guy adopting the title seigneurs de Salmaise.  "Wido dominus castri sancti Johannis", as suzerain, confirmed the donation of property "in fundo Musiacensi" to Cîteaux made by “domnus Bernardus de Ruelee et filii eius...[214]m [--- de Saulx, daughter of GUY Comte de Saulx & his wife ---].  "Domina Montis Sancti Johannis filia Guidonis viri militaris de Saltu castro" donated property to Saint-Seine, with the consent of "duobus filiis suis Hugone domino Montis Sancti Johannis et Johanne fratre eius…uxore jam dicti Hugonis nondum habente filium nec filiam…sororibus eiusdem Hugonis cum filiis ac filiabus suis, scilicet Hemmelina domina Blaseii et domina de Chaudenai", by charter dated 1152[215].  Her parentage is uncertain as it is not clear whether "vir militaris de Saltu castro" in this charter could be interpreted as meaning Guy Comte de Saulx.  Petit records Guy Seigneur de Mont-Saint-Jean as father of Hugues and Jean, named in charters from 1116 to 1145[216].  If that is correct, it is unlikely, from a chronological point of view, that his wife could have been the daughter of Guy Comte de Saulx.  Guy & his wife had four children: 

a)         HUGUES de Mont-Saint-Jean (-after 1196)Seigneur de Mont-Saint-Jean.  "Domina Montis Sancti Johannis filia Guidonis viri militaris de Saltu castro" donated property to Saint-Seine, with the consent of "duobus filiis suis Hugone domino Montis Sancti Johannis et Johanne fratre eius…uxore jam dicti Hugonis nondum habente filium nec filiam…sororibus eiusdem Hugonis cum filiis ac filiabus suis, scilicet Hemmelina domina Blaseii et domina de Chaudenai", by charter dated 1152[217]

d)         --- de Mont-Saint-Jean (-after 1152).  "Domina Montis Sancti Johannis filia Guidonis viri militaris de Saltu castro" donated property to Saint-Seine, with the consent of "duobus filiis suis Hugone domino Montis Sancti Johannis et Johanne fratre eius…uxore jam dicti Hugonis nondum habente filium nec filiam…sororibus eiusdem Hugonis cum filiis ac filiabus suis, scilicet Hemmelina domina Blaseii et domina de Chaudenai", by charter dated 1152[220]m --- de Chaudenay, son of ---. 

2.         [RAINARD de Mont-Saint-Jean (-after 1119).  "...Rainaudus de Monte Sancti Johannis..." witnessed the charter dated 1119 under which "dominus Seguinus, Eduensis et Sedelocensis decanus" donated property “apud Crispiacum” to Cîteaux[221].]

iii)        [--- .  Assuming that “nepos”, in the charter quoted below, can be interpreted as nephew, one of the parents of Eudes de Mirabel was the sibling of Guy [II] de Sombernon.  However, the chronology of other charters which name the Sombernon family suggests that the document in question was issued early in the donor’s adult life.  This would suggest that it was improbable that he would have had an adult nephew at that date.
