The pagus Tornodorensis was one of the ten pagi which were situated within the diocese of Langres, centred on the town of Tonnerre and corresponding approximately with the archidiaconat of Tonnerrois[1].  Le Maistre provides a detailed description of the geographical extent of the pagus, together with a map[2].  The county of Tonnerre evolved in the northern part of the area which later evolved into the duchy of Burgundy.  The bishops of Langres were suzerains of Tonnerre in the early 12th century: Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Tornodorense...”, by bull dated [1105][3]

A.      COMTES de TONNERRE

 

 

1.         MILO, son of --- (-902 or before).  Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks confirmed a judgment relating to property of Kloster Kempten by charter dated 11 Mar [853] which names "advocati sui Milonis, Babone, Fritilone, Etzone comitibus"[4], although it is not known whether "advocati…Milonis" is the same Milon as named in the other references shown below.  A document issued by Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks dated Nov 853 names "Teutboldus episcopus, Ionas episcopus, Isembardus, et Abbo abba, Daddo" as missi in "in comitatibus Milonis, et in comitatibus Isembardi, Augustuduno scilicet, Matisconense, Divionense, Cabillone, Hatuariis, et in Tornedriso, et in Belniso, et in Dusmiso comitatu Attelæ, et in comitatu Romoldi"[5]"Vir nobilis Milo cum conjuge sua Suficia" donated property "in villa de Monte Usclato et in pago Lugdunensi, in vicaria Soyonense in villa Carabaciago" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre by charter dated "Lothario rege"[6].  A document of Lothar II King of Lotharingia dated 865 relating to the king's reacceptance of his wife Theotberga names "de comitibus Milo, Ratherius, Erlandus, Theutmarus, Weremboldus, Rocolfus comes" as those swearing allegiance[7]m firstly SULPICIE, daughter of ---.  "Vir nobilis Milo cum conjuge sua Suficia" donated property "in villa de Monte Usclato et in pago Lugdunensi, in vicaria Soyonense in villa Carabaciago" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre by charter dated "Lothario rege"[8]m secondly as her second husband, ADELA, widow of ---, daughter of ---.  "Atila comitissa" donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon "pro requie anime viri sui Milonis comitis" with the consent of "Girbaldus comes et Reintrudis uxor eius filia ipsius Atile" by charter dated 902[9]

 

 

1.         EUDES [Odo], son of EUDES Comte [de Troyes] & his wife --- (-after 886).  The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon names "duo filii Rotberti Andegavorum comitis…senior Odo..Robertus alter"[10]"Karolus…rex" granted "villam Cadusiam" to "fideli sui Roberto" in a charter dated 25 Oct 877 which names "Odoni comiti fratri Roberti…cum Tournodrinsis ville pagensibus"[11]Comte de Tonnerre.  Abbo's Bella Parisiciæ Urbis records the part played by "comites Odo fraterque suus…Rotbertus pariterque comes" at the siege of Paris in 886[12]

 

 

1.         MILON [I] (-before 950).  "Milonis senioris mei" is named in the donation of Adalgaris for, among others, his soul, dated 950[13]m ADALGARDIS [Adela], daughter of LANDRY comes & his second wife Emma --- (-after 950).  "Adalgaris" names her parents in her charter dated 950, which also names her brother, husband and three sons[14].  "…Adelæ comitissæ, Milonis comitis filii eius" subscribed the charter dated 8 Sep 975 under which "Adelelmus miles" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire for the souls of "genitore meo Rotberto et genitrice mea Bertha et…Burcardo"[15].  Bouchard says it is possible to identify Adela, wife of Milo, with the daughter of Humbert [I] Seigneur de Salins who was the mother of Wandelmodis and grandmother of Engelbert Comte de Brienne[16], but this theory is disproved by the charter evidence referred to above.  Milon [I] & his wife had three children: 

a)         MILON [II] (-[Jul 980/[992]).  "Milone filiis meis" consented to the donation of Adalgardis dated 950[17].  "…Adelæ comitissæ, Milonis comitis filii eius" subscribed the charter dated 8 Sep 975 under which "Adelelmus miles" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire for the souls of "genitore meo Rotberto et genitrice mea Bertha et…Burcardo"[18]Comte de Tonnerre

-        see below

b)         ADEHAR (-after 950).  "Adhyrardo filiis meis" consented to the donation of Adalgaris dated 950[19]

c)         QUILTO (-after 950).  "Queltonis filii mei" consented to the donation of Adalgaris dated 950[20]

 

 

MILO [II], son of MILON [I] & his wife Adalgardis --- ([910/35]-[Jul 980/[992]).  "Milone filiis meis" consented to the donation of Adalgardis dated 950[21].  His birth date range is estimated for the purposes of assessing the number of generations between Milon [II] and Milon [V], as explained further below.  "…Adelæ comitissæ, Milonis comitis filii eius" subscribed the charter dated 8 Sep 975 under which "Adelelmus miles" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire for the souls of "genitore meo Rotberto et genitrice mea Bertha et…Burcardo"[22]Comte de Tonnerre.  “Milo comes pagi Tornodorensis…et Ingeltrudis uxoris suæ” restored the monastery of Saint-Michel, naming property "in pago Brionense in villa Jasant" half of which was donated immediately and the other half "post excessum Ingeltrudis uxoris suæ", by charter dated Jul 980, signed by "Richardi comitis, Milonis"[23].  A charter dated to [992] records that “comite Milone pagum Tornodorensem” had retired to the monastery of Saint-Michel de Tonnerre[24].  An undated charter records that "Milo quondam comes" donated property "in villa…Jassant" to Saint-Michel, property claimed after his death by "comes Ingelbertus", witnessed by "…Witerius vicecomes…"[25].  

m INGELTRUDE, daughter of ---.  Milo comes pagi Tornodorensis…et Ingeltrudis uxoris suæ” restored the monastery of Saint-Michel, naming property "in pago Brionense in villa Jasant" half of which was donated immediately and the other half "post excessum Ingeltrudis uxoris suæ", by charter dated Jul 980, signed by "Richardi comitis, Milonis"[26].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[27], she was Ingeltrude de Brienne, possible daughter of Engelbert [I] de Brienne, but the basis for this speculation has not been found.  It is possible that it is based on the location of the property donated in the Jul 980 charter quoted above.  The correctness of the speculation appears confirmed by an undated charter which records that "Milo quondam comes" donated property "in villa…Jassant" to Saint-Michel, and that the property was claimed after his death by "comes Ingelbertus" (presumably either Engelbert [II] or Engelbert [III] Comte de Brienne)[28]

Milon [II] & his wife had [two] children: 

1.         GUY de Tonnerre ([935/60]-).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 29 Sep 1046 in which Milon [V] Comte de Tonnerre names some of his paternal ancestors “Milo atavus meusWuydo proavus meus…Milo pater meus…” (see further details below)[29]The difficulty with this is the absence of "abavus" and “avus” from the series of ancestors.  Bouchard suggests that the charter should be interpreted as indicating that Guy was the son of Milon [II][30].  This is probably correct, as shown by the following assessment of the chronology of the family.  It is assumed that Milon [II] is identified as the “atavus” because of his mention in the document as founder of the monastery.  It is likely that Milon [II] died during the 980s, as shown above, which would place his birth within the wide range of [910/40].  If this is correct, and if the birth date range of Milon [V] is correctly estimated as shown below, Milon [V] would most likely have been in the fourth succeeding generation, and therefore the great-grandson of Milon [II].  The chronology therefore indicates that neither “atavus” nor “proavus” should be interpreted in this document with their traditional meanings of great-great-great grandfather and great grandfather.  m ---.  The name of Guy's wife is not known.  Guy & his wife had one child: 

a)         MILON [III] ([965/80]-).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 29 Sep 1046 in which Milon [V] Comte de Tonnerre names some of his paternal ancestors “Milo atavus meusWuydo proavus meus…Milo pater meus…” (see further details below)[31].  As explained above under Milon [III]’s father Guy, the chronology of this family does not favour the interpretation of "proavus" in this document in any other way than "grandfather", despite this not being strictly correct from the point of view of language.  If this is correct, Guy was the father of Milon [III].  m ---.  The name of Milon’s wife is not known.  Milon [III] & his wife had two children: 

i)          MILON [V] de Tonnerre ([995/1005]-[before/after 29 Sep 1046])His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 29 Sep 1046 in which Milon [V] Comte de Tonnerre names some of his paternal ancestors “Milo atavus meusWuydo proavus meus…Milo pater meus…” (see further details below)[32].  His birth date range is estimated on the assumption that the birth date range estimated for his son Guy is correct as suggested below.  Comte de Tonnerre

-         see below

ii)         GUY de Tonnerre (-before 29 Sep 1046).  Milo comes castri Tornodori” donated property to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre, for the souls of “Milo atavus meus” (founder of the monastery) “Wuydo proavus meus…Milo pater meus…Wuydo frater meus…et Wuydo filius meus”, by charter dated 29 Sep 1046[33]

2.         [LETGARDE (-after 1016).  "Leotgarda comitissa…ac filii mei Rogerii" donated "terram…in villa…Jassant" to Saint-Michel by charter dated to [1005], signed by "Rogerius comes, Richardus, Rainardus comes, Alberic, Erembertus vicecomes, Milo…"[34].  Ernest Petit highlights that the same property was named in the charter dated Jul 980 in the name of Milon [II] Comte de Tonnerre and his wife Ingeltrude, and suggests therefore that Letgarde must have been their descendant[35]Europäische Stammtafeln[36] shows Letgarde as the daughter of "Wido proavus Milonis comitis", the latter referring presumably to the 1046 charter of Comte Milon [V].  However, the chronology appears to favour her being the daughter of Milon [II].  The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records a donation of "ecclesiam…in villa Islo-super-Mosam fluvium in comitatu Bassignacensi" by "matrona…Letgardis…soror Lamberti episcopi" [probably Bishop of Langres], undated but among other records of donations in the late 1020s[37]Ernest Petit suggests that "soror" could be interpreted in this document as meaning sister-in-law as well as sister[38]m RICHARD Comte de Bassigny, de Bologne, de Vigory et d'Andelot, son of --- (-before 1005).] 

 

 

1.         HUMBERT (-after [992]).  “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre by charter dated to [992], signed by "heredum meorum…Regnaldus, Odo filius eius, Milo, Achardus, Nivardus, Lancelinus, Walo, Otbertus, Rotbertus, Wido" and witnessed by "Milo comes, Lambertus, Richardus, Albericus, Archanradus, Calo, Girvardus, Raynardus comes, Erembertus, Ormundus, Widricus, Milo, Achardus, Odo, Raynardus"[39].  Ernest Petit suggests that Humbert was a probable uncle of Milon [II] Comte de Tonnerre[40].  This supposition is supported by the names of Humbert’s heirs and the witnesses of the charter.  m GIBERGE, daughter of --- (-after [992]).  “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre by charter dated to [992], signed by "heredum meorum…Regnaldus, Odo filius eius, Milo, Achardus, Nivardus, Lancelinus, Walo, Otbertus, Rotbertus, Wido"[41].  Humbert & his wife had children: 

a)         RAINARD (-after [992]).  “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre by charter dated to [992], signed by "heredum meorum…Regnaldus, Odo filius eius, Milo, Achardus, Nivardus, Lancelinus, Walo, Otbertus, Rotbertus, Wido"[42]m ---.  The name of Reynaud’s wife is not known.  Reynaud & his wife had one child: 

i)          EUDES .  “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre by charter dated to [992], signed by "heredum meorum…Regnaldus, Odo filius eius, Milo, Achardus, Nivardus, Lancelinus, Walo, Otbertus, Rotbertus, Wido"[43]

b)         other children.  “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre by charter dated to [992], signed by "heredum meorum…Regnaldus, Odo filius eius, Milo, Achardus, Nivardus, Lancelinus, Walo, Otbertus, Rotbertus, Wido"[44].  It is not known how many of these named individuals were the donor’s children or more remote heirs. 

 

 

1.         MILON [IV] de Tonnerre ([950/65]-1002 or after).  The parentage of Milon [IV] is not known.  There are three possibilities.  Firstly, he could have been the same person as Milon [III] shown above as father of Milon [V].  This is not an ideal fit.  Milon [IV] does not name Milon and Guy among his “carissimorum filiorum” in his charter dated to [992/1005] (see below)[45].  The addition of “carissimorum” suggests that the three sons named in the document were his only children, as it is difficult to imagine how he could have had other children whom he did not consider “carissimorum”.  One possibility is that Milon [V] and Guy would have been born after the date of the charter.  However, the document strongly suggests that it was written with the donor’s death in mind as he requests that his own and his wife’s anniversaries be remembered, although it is of course not impossible that he recovered from the illness from which he was suffering and had more children.  Secondly, Milon [IV] could have been an older son of Milon [II] who succeeded his father in the county.  The birth date ranges for Milon [IV] and for Guy, known son of Milon [II], allow for this possibility.  Thirdly, he could have been the son of an otherwise unknown older son of Milon [II] who succeeded his paternal grandfather in the county.  The birth date ranges are not incompatible with this possibility either, assuming that Milon [II]’s son Guy was born early in the date range shown for him above, while Milon [IV] was born late in his birth date range.  As can be seen, no factor points conclusively to one of these possibilities being correct.  It is preferable therefore to avoid further speculation and show his parentage as unknown, although it should be emphasised that the suggested birth date ranges assigned to the various members of this family are speculative and that the conclusions could be different if they were incorrect.  Comte de Tonnerre.  "Milo comes, Lambertus, Richardus, Albericus, Archanradus, Calo, Girvardus, Raynardus comes, Erembertus, Ormundus, Widricus, Milo, Achardus, Odo, Raynardus" witnessed the charter dated to [992] under which “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre[46]"…Raynardi comitis…Milonis comitis, Aremberti…" subscribed a charter dated to [997] which deals with the property at Coussegré[47]Milo comes Tornodorensis castri” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta" to the monastery of Saint-Michel, with the consent of “coniugis mee Ermengarde et carissimorum filiorum meorum Achardi, Rainardi et Alberici”, by charter dated to [992/1005][48].  The charter appears to have been written with his own death in mind as he requests the anniversaries of his own and his wife’s deaths to be remembered.  m ERMENGARDE, daughter of --- (-after 1018).  Ernest Petit suggests that she was Ermengarde, daughter and heiress of Rainard Comte [de Bar-sur-Seine] & his wife ---, , in order to explain how her granddaughter by Comte Milon, Eustachia, transmitted this county to her husband Gauthier de Brienne[49].  A family connection is indicated by the charter dated to [992/1005] uner which Milo comes Tornodorensis castri” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta" to the monastery of Saint-Michel, with the consent of “coniugis mee Ermengarde et carissimorum filiorum meorum Achardi, Rainardi et Alberici[50], the property being the same as the subject of the [992] charter witnessed by "…Raynardus comes…"[51]According to Ernest Petit[52], Ermengardis married secondly Héribert [IV] Comte de Vermandois.  The author highlights a charter of Ermengarde Ctss de Vermandois witnessed by Rainard Comte de Tonnerre.  He suggests that Rainard would only have done this if he were the son of Ermengarde, although other explanations must be possible.  Settipani points out[53] that Ermengardis is named as the wife of Héribert in a document of her father-in-law Albert I Comte de Vermandois, relating to the abbey of Homblières, dated some time between 982 and the death of Comte Albert (in 987).  If the two marriages apply to the same Ermengarde, Comte Héribert must therefore have been her first husband and Comte Milon her second.  However, it is not clear that this suggested co-identity is correct, a simpler explanation being that there were two different individuals named Ermengarde.  "Raynardus comes Tornodorensis pagi et mater mea Ermengardis comitissa" donated "alodum nostrum…Cappam" to Saint-Michel by charter dated 1002, signed by "Odonis vicecomitis…"[54].  Count Milon [IV] & his wife had four children: 

a)         ACHARD de TonnerreMilo comes Tornodorensis castri” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, with the consent of “coniugis mee Ermengarde et…filiorum meorum Achardi, Rainardi et Alberici”, by charter dated to [992/1005][55].  "Milo comes… Achardus, Odo, Raynardus" witnessed the charter dated to [992] under which “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre[56].  It is possible that the last three names in the list refer to the children of Milon [IV] Comte de Tonnerre.  [A monk in 1018.] 

b)         [EUDES de Tonnerre .  "Milo comes… Achardus, Odo, Raynardus" witnessed the charter dated to [992] under which “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre[57].  It is possible that the last three names in the list refer to the children of Milon [IV] Comte de Tonnerre. 

c)         RAINARD de Tonnerre ([980/90]-after 16 Jul 1039).  Milo comes Tornodorensis castri” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, with the consent of “coniugis mee Ermengarde et…filiorum meorum Achardi, Rainardi et Alberici”, by charter dated to [992/1005][58]. "Milo comes… Achardus, Odo, Raynardus" witnessed the charter dated to [992] under which “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre[59].  It is possible that the last three names in the list refer to the children of Milon [IV] Comte de Tonnerre.  Comte de Tonnerre"Raynardus comes Tornodorensis pagi et mater mea Ermengardis comitissa" donated "alodum nostrum…Cappam" to Saint-Michel by charter dated 1002, signed by "Odonis vicecomitis…"[60].  "Leotgarda comitissa…ac filii mei Rogerii" donated "terram…in villa…Jassant" to Saint-Michel by charter dated to [1005], signed by "Rogerius comes, Richardus, Rainardus comes, Alberic, Erembertus vicecomes, Milo…"[61].  “Rainaldus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, for the soul of “filii mei Othonis” buried in the monastery and “uxore mea Herviz…filio nostro Arduyno ac filia Ermengarda”, by charter dated Jul 1036, subscribed by “…Raynaldi comitis, Willelmi comitis filius eius[62].  “Raynardus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel (on his deathbed), with the consent of “uxoris mee Herviz et filii mei Harduini sive filie mee Ermengarde”, by charter dated 16 Jul 1039 which also names “mater mea Ermengardis[63]m (after 1002) HELVIS, daughter of --- (-after 16 Jul 1039).  Rainaldus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, for the soul of “filii mei Othonis” buried in the monastery and “uxore mea Herviz…filio nostro Arduyno ac filia Ermengarda”, by charter dated Jul 1036[64].  “Raynardus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel (on his deathbed), with the consent of “uxoris mee Herviz et filii mei Harduini sive filie mee Ermengarde”, by charter dated 16 Jul 1039 which also names “mater mea Ermengardis[65]Rainard & his wife had three children: 

i)          OTTO de Tonnerre (-before Jul 1036, bur Tonnerre Saint-Michel).  Rainaldus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, for the soul of “filii mei Othonis” buried in the monastery and “uxore mea Herviz…filio nostro Arduyno ac filia Ermengarda”, by charter dated Jul 1036[66]Otto is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[67] as having three possible sons, Robert, Wido and Renaud, all “puer” 1036.  This is based on the charter of Rainaldus comes” dated Jul 1036 (see above).  The full list of subscribers to this document is: “Rainaldi comitis, Arduini, Erviz matris eius, Ermengardæ sororis eius, Ervei, Widonis, Hugonis, Barnuynis, Wydonis, Emelini, Iterii, Widrici, Rotberti clerici, Hugonis, Rodulfi, Attonis, Raynaldi, Rotberti pueri, Widonis pueri, Raynardi pueri, Richardi, Otmundi, Attoni, Joffredi, Otmundi, Aymonis, Millonis clerici, Raynaldi comitis, Willelmi comitis filii eius[68].  None of the names has been identified apart from Comte Renaud and his immediate family, and the last two.  The names of the three “pueri” have no special priority in the order of the list and it seems pure speculation to suggest that they may have been the sons of Otto, deceased son of Renaud. 

ii)         HARDOUIN de Tonnerre (-29 Sep 1065)Rainaldus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, for the soul of “filii mei Othonis” buried in the monastery and “uxore mea Herviz…filio nostro Arduyno ac filia Ermengarda”, by charter dated Jul 1036[69].  “Raynardus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel (on his deathbed), with the consent of “uxoris mee Herviz et filii mei Harduini sive filie mee Ermengarde”, by charter dated 16 Jul 1039 which also names “mater mea Ermengardis[70]Archdeacon at Noyon until 1050.  Bishop of Langres 1050. 

iii)        ERMENGARDE de Tonnerre ([1023/26]-before 1090)Rainaldus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, for the soul of “filii mei Othonis” buried in the monastery and “uxore mea Herviz…filio nostro Arduyno ac filia Ermengarda”, by charter dated Jul 1036[71].  Her birth date is estimated from her marriage in [1039], combined with the fact that she was still not of marriageable age in 1036.  “Raynardus comes” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel (on his deathbed), with the consent of “uxoris mee Herviz et filii mei Harduini sive filie mee Ermengarde”, by charter dated 16 Jul 1039 which also names “mater mea Ermengardis[72]Her marriage is referred to in the Gesta pontificum Autissiodorensium[73].  She succeeded as Ctss de Tonnerre in 1065 when her cousin Comte Hugues-Rainard became bishop of Langres[74]m ([1039]) as his first wife, GUILLAUME [I] Comte de Nevers et d'Auxerre, son of RENAUD [I] Comte de Nevers & his wife Hedwig [Avoie] de France [Capet] (-20 Jun 1098, bur Nevers Saint-Etienne). 

d)         AUBRY de TonnerreMilo comes Tornodorensis castri” donated property to the monastery of Saint-Michel, with the consent of “coniugis mee Ermengarde et…filiorum meorum Achardi, Rainardi et Alberici”, by charter dated to [992/1005][75].  "Leotgarda comitissa…ac filii mei Rogerii" donated "terram…in villa…Jassant" to Saint-Michel by charter dated to [1005], signed by "Rogerius comes, Richardus, Rainardus comes, Alberic, Erembertus vicecomes, Milo…"[76]992-1002/before 1016. 

 

 

MILON [V] de Tonnerre, son of MILON [III] & his wife --- ([995/1005]-[before/after 29 Sep 1046]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 29 Sep 1046 in which Milon [V] Comte de Tonnerre names some of his paternal ancestors “Milo atavus meusWuydo proavus meus…Milo pater meus…” (see further details below)[77].  His birth date range is estimated on the assumption that the birth date range estimated for his son Guy is correct as suggested below.  Comte de Tonnerre.  He presumably succeeded his cousin Renaud as Comte de Tonnerre in [1039/40].  Milo comes castri Tornodori” donated property to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre, for the souls of “Milo atavus meus” (founder of the monastery) “Wuydo proavus meus…Milo pater meus…Wuydo frater meus…et Wuydo filius meus”, adding that the last named had been killed “a servis suis”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Azece ac filiorum meorum”, by charter dated 29 Sep 1046, which specifies that after the death of “supradicti Milonis regnante filio eius Hugone…”, subscribed by “Waleranni filii eius, Joffredi filii eius” and signed by “Hugonis qui et Raynardi…comitis, Thedbaldi Ruffi, Lamberti vice-comitis, Giselberti et Wydonis et Gaufredi fratrum, Rodulphi, Willenci, Odonis filii Ingelbaudi[78].  It is unclear from the wording of the charter whether the document is dated before or after the death of the donor. 

m AZECA, daughter of --- (-before 1068).  Milo comes castri Tornodori” donated property to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre, with the consent of “uxoris mee Azece ac filiorum meorum”, by charter dated 29 Sep 1046, subscribed by “Waleranni filii eius, Joffredi filii eius[79].  Her date of death is fixed by the charter dated 1068 under which her son “Raynardum…[Lingonensis] ecclesie pontificali” donated property to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre referring to property donated “post mortem matris meæ[80]

D.      SEIGNEURS de NOYERS

 

 

The town of Noyers (now called Noyers-sur-Serein) straddles the banks of the river Serein, about 10 kilometres south of Tonnerre, in the present day French département of Yonne.  The date of construction of the castle of Noyers, around which the town later developed, is unknown.  Members of the seigneurial family are first named in sources in the mid-11th century.  By the early 14th century, the family was enjoying a position of authority and power in the French royal court, with Milon [X] Seigneur de Noyers appointed maréchal de France and leading a mission to meet the English king during the build-up to the Hundred Years War.
