Chapter 1.    SEIGNEURS d'ARLAY

 

 

Arlay is a commune in the southern part of the county of Burgundy about 40 kilometres due east of Chalon-sur-Saône and about the distance west of the present-day border with Switzerland, in the département of Jura, arrondissement Lons-le-Saunier, canton Bletterans.  In the mid-13th century, the castle of Arlay was held by a younger branch of the Chalon/Bourgogne-Comté family.  The family inherited the principality of Orange by marriage in the late 14th century. 

 

 

JEAN de Salins, son of JEAN [I] "l'Antique" Comte de Chalon, Seigneur de Salins & his third wife Laurette de Commercy ([1259/60]-before 30 Oct 1315, [maybe 13 Feb 1315,] bur Mont-Sainte-Marie).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 27 Apr 1279 in which “Othes cuens de Bourgoingne, palatins et sires de Salins” names “nostre…oncle…Jehan de Chalon, signour d’Arlay…[1].  His date of birth is estimated on the assumption that he was born soon after his father’s third marriage.  Clerc suggests that he was aged 55 when he died[2], presumably on the basis of the same assumption.  Jehans cuens de Bourgoigne et sires de Salins” granted “le chastel de Chalemont…” to “es enfant que nous avons et aurons de la contesse Lore, nostre tierce fame, fille de jadis mons. Symon de Commercy”, by charter dated 25 Mar 1263[3]Seigneur d'Arlay.  A charter dated 4 May 1269 confirms the restitution of “le donjon de l’Estoille” to “dame Lore contesse de Chalon et à Jehan son fils” by “Estienes sires d’Oiseler…et li sires de Jayz[4].  “Lore ça en arrières feme du noble baron Jehan conte de Borgoigne et seigneur de Salins et Jehan fliz dudit conte et de ladite Lore” acknowledged receiving “le chestel de Bleterans” from “Othon de Borgoigne seigneur de Salin” acting as executor of “Perrin le Boviers filz ça en arrières dudit conte” by charter dated 29 Apr 1274[5].  Rudolf I von Habsburg King of Germany, his brother-in-law, granted the town and castle of Neuchâtel to Jean in [1288].  He fought with Rudolf, as the latter's Lieutenant, in the war against the Counts of Burgundy and Ferrette in 1289, being rewarded with the avouerie of the Abbaye de Saint-Claude in May 1291.  He bought the vicomté of Besançon from Eudes de Montferrand: “Eudes de Montferrand” gave “la vicomté de Besançon” to “Humbert de Clairvaux” by charter dated 1293, and in the same year Humbert de Clairvaux received the vicomté “en fief de Jean de Chalon-Arlay” and Adolf King of Germany confirmed it to “Jean de Chalon-Arlay et à Humbert de Clairvaux[6].  Marshal of the Bishop of Liège 1297/98.  Philippe IV "le Bel" King of France recognised him as Governor of the County of Burgundy 28 Aug 1306[7].  His date of death is set by the charter dated 30 Oct 1315 of Louis X King of France which refers to the inheritance of “Hugone de Cabilone domino de Arlato, milite, et Johanne de Cabilone…eius fratre[8].  A tableau at the funerary chapel of the seigneur de Chalon at the abbey of Mont-Sainte-Marie records his death “Id Feb 1315[9].  Clerc comments that this tableau is “quelquefois fautif” but “est ici d’accord avec les événements”.  It is uncertain whether this comment can be correct: if the date was O.S., as might be expected, the charter dated 20 Oct 1315 quoted above indicates that Jean could not have died 13 Feb 1316. 

m firstly (contract 26 Sep 1272, 1280) MARGUERITE de Bourgogne, daughter of HUGUES IV Duke of Burgundy & his second wife Béatrice de Champagne (-after [1305]).  The testament of “Hugo dux Burgundiæ”, dated Sep 1272, bequeathed dowry for “Margaretam filiam meam” for her marriage to “Ioanni filio quondam...Ioannis comitis Burgundie domini Salinensis defuncti[10].  The testament of “Hugo de Burgundia, dominus Montis Regalis” dated 1 Apr 1285 names “filiam meam Beatricem…uxor mea Margarita…Ysabellam Romanorum reginam, B. comitissam Marchie, et Marguaritam dominam Allaii uxorem Johannis de Cabilone militis, sorores meas[11].  “Jehans de Chalon, sires d’Arlay, et Marguerite sa fame, et Biatrix de Bourgoingne comtesse de La Marche et d’Angoulesme, suer de ladite Marguerite” issued a charter dated to [1305] relating to the purchase of “la chestellenie de Lylle souz Monreaul[12].  Dame de Vitteaux 1294, by grant of her half-brother Duke Robert as part of the succession of her brother Huguenin. 

m secondly ([1312]) as her second husband, ALIX de Clermont Vicomtesse de Châteaudun, dame de Mondoubleau, heiress of Dunois, widow of GUILLAUME de Flandre Heer van Dendermonde, daughter of RAOUL [III] de Clermont Seigneur de Nesle, Connétable de France & his first wife Alix de Dreux Vicomtesse de Châteaudun (-1330).  Her parentage and two marriages are confirmed by the marriage contract between "Robert comte de Boloigne et Robert de Boloigne chevalier son fils" and "Jehan de Chalon Seigneur d’Arlay et Aelis dame de Neele sa femme...et Marie de Flandres fille de ladite dame de Neele", dated Feb 1312[13]According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the daughter of Guillaume de Flandre Heer van Dendermonde was the second wife of Jean de Chalon Seigneur d'Arlay[14].  The previously quoted source demonstrates that this is incorrect. 

Jean & his first wife had three children:

1.         HUGUES de Chalon (-4 Dec 1322, bur Mont-Sainte-Marie).  “Jehans de Chalon sires d’Allay et de Neelle” granted “le fié dou chestel de Poupet dessus Salins” to “nostre…fiz Hugue de Chalon chevalier” by charter dated 6 Aug 1314[15]Seigneur d'Arlay et de Vitteaux.  The charter dated 30 Oct 1315 of Louis X King of France refers to the inheritance of “Hugone de Cabilone domino de Arlato, milite, et Johanne de Cabilone…eius fratre[16].  Philippe V King of France agreed an alliance with Hugues Seigneur d’Arlay at Orange by charter dated 4 Mar 1316 (N.S.)[17].  An attestation given 18 Feb 1437 by the abbot of Mont-Sainte-Marie records the death in 1322 of “Hugues” buried in the Chalon chapel[18]Clerc records his date of death without citing the source on which he bases this information[19]His testament, dated mid-Nov 1322 (“le lundi après la saint Martin d’hiver 1322”) required all his sons to become clerics apart from the eldest and placed them under the guardianship of his wife[20]m (13 Feb 1302) BEATRIX de la Tour du Pin, daughter of HUMBERT [I] de la Tour du Pin Dauphin de Viennois & his wife Anne Dauphine de Viennois Ctss d'Albon (after 1273-10 or 12 Jun 1347).  The contract of marriage between "Humbertus Dalphinus Viennensis et Albonis comes…Beatrici filiæ nostri" and "Johannes de Cabilione dominus de Arlaco…Hugo de Cabilione filius" is dated 13 Feb 1302[21].  The necrology of Saint-Claude records the death "II Id Jun" of "Beatrix Viennensis domina de Allaio"[22].  Hugues & his wife had four children: 

a)         JEAN de Chalon (-25/26 Feb 1362, bur Mont Sainte-Marie)His family origin is indicated by the following document: “Jean de Chalon-Arlay” exchanged “terre à Châtelblanc”, granted by “Jean son oncle paternel évêque de Langres” to “Perrenet bâtard de Chalon”, for “rente sur le péage de Jougne” with the same Perrenet by charter dated 1340[23]Seigneur d'Arlay, d'Arguel et de Cuiseaux. 

-        see below

b)         LOUIS de Chalon (-after 1322).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified. 

c)         HUGUES de Chalon (-1340, bur Mont-Sainte-Marie).  Seigneur de La Rivière.  An attestation given 18 Feb 1437 by the abbot of Mont-Sainte-Marie records the death in 1362 of “Jean le Grand” and of “Hugues son frère” (no date of death), both buried in the Chalon chapel[24]

d)         JACQUES de ChalonThe primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Seigneur de Vitteaux.

2.         JEAN de Chalon (1300-22 Jun 1334).  His family origin is indicated by the charter dated 1340 quoted below under Jean’s possible illegitimate son Perrenet.  The charter dated 30 Oct 1315 of Louis X King of France refers to the inheritance of “Hugone de Cabilone domino de Arlato, milite, et Johanne de Cabilone…eius fratre[25].  Canon at Langres Cathedral  and Besançon Cathedral 1316.  Canon in Paris 1317.  Deacon of Langres Cathedral 1318.  Bishop of Basel 1325, resigned 1328.  Bishop of Langres 1328.  Pair de France.  Bishop Jean had one possible illegitimate son by an unknown mistress:

a)         [PERRENET bâtard de Chalon (-after 1340).  “Jean de Chalon-Arlay” [Jean de Chalon Seigneur d’Arlay, nephew of Bishop Jean, see below] exchanged “terre à Châtelblanc”, granted by “Jean son oncle paternel évêque de Langres” to “Perrenet bâtard de Chalon”, for “rente sur le péage de Jougne” with the same Perrenet by charter dated 1340[26].  An explanation for the original grant by Bishop Jean is that Perrenet was his illegitimate son.] 

3.         ISABELLE de Chalon (-[10 Mar 1352/19 Jun 1359])"Gioanni di Challon Signore d'Arlay" and "--- di Savoia Signore di Vaud" agreed to transfer property as part of the dowry of "Isabella di Chalon sua Sorella Moglie di detto Signore di Vaud" dated Feb 1309[27], although "sorella" is presumably an error for "figlia".  The contract of marriage between "Lodovico di Savoia Signore di Vaud" and "Isabella figlia di Gio. di Chalon Signore d'Arlai" is dated 9 Jul 1309[28].  A charter dated 9 Jul 1309 confirms the marriage between “Jehans de Chalon sires d’Allay…Ysabel sa fille” and “messires Loys de Savoie sires de Waut”, and also names “l’arcevesque de Besençon, frère doudit Jehan” and “la contesse de La Marche tante de ladite Ysabel[29]"Lodovico di Savoia Signore di Vaud" lifted the obligation of "Guglielmo di Montagny suo Nipote" relating to the dowry for "Isabella di Chalon sua Consorte" by charter dated Dec 1332[30]The testament of "Lodovico secundo di Savoia Signore di Vaud" dated 29 Mar 1340 makes bequests "ad Isabella di Challon sua Consorte…"[31]A charter dated 10 Mar 1352, under which "Guillermus comes Namurcensis dominus Vuaudi" issued an arbitral decision relating to a dispute between the chapter of Lausanne and "dominum Iohannem condominium Albone militem", records the intervention of "illustres dominas dominam Ysabellam de Cabilone et dominam Katerinam de Sabaudia eius filiam, conjugem nostrum dominas Waudi" in a certain aspect of the dispute[32] "Ysabella de Scabellione domina Novicastri relicta…domini Ludovici de Sabaudia domini Vaudi" granted rights in her lands to "consanguineorum nostrorum Guilliermi de Grandissono et Ioannis dominorum Albone" by charter dated 13 Jun 1352[33].  It is unclear why Isabelle is called "domina Novicastri" in this document.  Her age indicates that it is unlikely she owed the title to a second marriage to a "seigneur de Neuchâtel".   m (9 Jul 1309) LOUIS [II] de Savoie Baron de Vaud, son of LOUIS [I] de Savoie Baron de Vaud & his second wife Jeanne de Montfort[-l'Amaury] ([1290]-Feb 1349). 

Jean & his second wife had one child:

4.         CATHERINE de Chalon (-[1355]).  Her parentage and marriage are shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[34]She is ignored by Père Anselme[35].  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  Muller states that the marriage is recorded “dans un inventaire de titres[36]m (11 Jun 1342) as his second wife, THIBAUT [VI] Seigneur de Neuchâtel, son of THIBAUT [V] Seigneur de Neuchâtel[-en-Bourgogne] & his wife Agnes von Geroldseck (-1366, bur Lieucroissant).

m firstly (before 1332) as her second husband, MARGUERITE de Mello Dame de l'Hermine, widow of MAURICE [VII] de Craon Seigneur de Sainte-Maure et de Marcillac, daughter of DREUX [IV] de Mello & his second wife Eléonore de Savoie (-1360).  Her parentage and first marriage are confirmed by letters dated 30 Jul 1329 rectifying in favour of "Raoul conte d’Eu et Jehanne sa femme" the division of the succession of “Dreuc sire de Mello chevalier jadis père des dites Jehanne [...ainsnée] et Marguerite” agreed with “Morice de Craon et Marguerite sa femme[39]Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated Dec 1335 under which Philippe VI King of France ratified the agreement between "Guillaume de Craon viconte de Chastiaudun" and “chevalier Olivier seigneur de Clisson, tuteur de Amauri seigneur de Craon filz jadis de Morise de Craon seigneur de Sainte-Maure, meneur d’aage” and “Jehan Hoquet procureur de...Jean de Châlon chevalier seigneur d’Arlay et Marguerite sa femme, mère du dit menour[40]

m secondly (1361 after 3 Oct) as her first husband, MARIE de Genève, daughter of AMEDEE III Comte de Genève & his wife Mathilde de Boulogne [Auvergne] (-after 28 Aug 1396).  Her parentage and first marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 23 Aug 1394 under which [her second husband] "Humbert sire de Thoire et de Villars" required the performance of a contract made between “feu Marie de Genève sa femme fille d’Amédée comte de Genève, alors veuve en première noces de Jean de Chalon” and “Hugues et Louis fils dudit Jean de Chalon” regarding payment of her dower, addressed to “Jean de Chalon seigneur d’Arlay comme héritier de Louis de Chalon son père et de Hugues de Chalon son oncle[41].  She married secondly (contract Annecy 2 Mar 1368, divorced) as his second wife, Humbert [VI] de Thoire-Villars, who succeeded in 1372 as Seigneur de Thoire et Villars.  Her parentage and second marriage are confirmed by the testament of [her brother] "Pierre comte de Genève", dated 24 Mar 1392, which appointed [her son] “son neveu Humbert de Villars fils de Humbert sire de Villars et de feu Marie de Genève” as his heir[42]

Jean & his first wife had six children:

1.         HUGUES de Chalon ([1334]-1388)His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 23 Aug 1394 under which [her second husband] "Humbert sire de Thoire et de Villars" required the performance of a contract made between “feu Marie de Genève sa femme fille d’Amédée comte de Genève, alors veuve en première noces de Jean de Chalon” and “Hugues et Louis fils dudit Jean de Chalon” regarding payment of her dower, addressed to “Jean de Chalon seigneur d’Arlay comme héritier de Louis de Chalon son père et de Hugues de Chalon son oncle[43]Seigneur d'ArlayGuy de Vienne Seigneur de Ruffey captured Hugues de Chalon in 1374 and “le tint suspendu du haut d’un rocher et se préparait à le précipiter dans l’abîme, lorsque les serviteurs du prince arrivèrent ‘a son secours[44]m (Papal dispensation 2 Jul 1363) BLANCHE de Genève Dame de Frontenay, daughter of AMEDEE II Comte de Genève & his wife Mathilde de Boulogne [Auvergne] (-1420).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a document dated to [1363] recording the gift from “Alix de Villars” to “Blanche de Genève femme d’Hugues de Chalon” on her marriage[45]

2.         JEAN de Chalon (-1360).  His parentage is confirmed by the following document: a decision of the Parliament of Paris dated 28 Feb 1404 (O.S.), declared that “Marguerite de Mello”, by her marriage to “Louis de Chalon”, had “trois fils: Jean, Hugues et Louis ainsi que trois filles[46]Seigneur d'Auberive.  He was killed by one of his brothers in the tournament which celebrated the marriage of his brother Louis[47]m (1355) as her first husband, MARGUERITE de Lorraine, daughter of FERRY IV Duke of Lorraine & his wife Elisabeth von Habsburg (-after 9 Aug 1376).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and first and second marriages has not been identified.  She married secondly Konrad Graf von Freiburg Seigneur de Romont, and thirdly ([14 Feb/early Apr] [1365]) as his second wife, Ulrich Herr von Rappoltstein.  The late 15th century Chronicle of Peter von Andlau records Ulrich von Rappoltstein’s second marriage with “Margret hertzigen von Luterchen” by whom he was childless[48].  “Ulrich herre ze Rapoltzstein” granted property to “Margreden hertzogin geborn von Luthringen minre...frowen” by charter dated 1364[49].  This date 1364 could be consistent with the 14 Feb 1364 charter quoted in the document ALSACE being “O.S.” if the precise date was [Feb/early Apr] 1364 (O.S.).  Jean & his wife had one child:

Chapter 2.    SEIGNEURS de CICON

 

 

The castle of Cicon was located near Ornans, south-east of Besançon[65].  It was a fief of the archbishop of Besançon[66].  There appears to be considerably uncertainty regarding the reconstruction of the Cicon family.  While primary sources have been identified which corroborate the outline shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[67], those that have been found reveal inaccuracies in that outline.  Guillaume’s reconstruction of the early generations of the Cicon family is also difficult to reconcile with the sources which are quoted below[68]

 

 

1.         LAMBERT [I] de Cicon (-after [1080]).  “Lambert de Cicon” was named in a charter dated 1080 under which Guillaume Comte de Bourgogne donated property to the church of Besançon[69]

Chapter 4.    SEIGNEURS de FAUCOGNEY, VICOMTES de VESOUL

 

 

Faucogney (now called Faucogney-et-la-Mer) is located about 15 kilometres north of Lure, in the arrondissement of Lure, in the present-day French département of Haute-Saône.  Vesoul is located about 20 kilometres due west of Lure and 40 kilometres north of Besançon.  The earliest reference to a vicomte of the castle of Vesoul dates to 1019 (see below).  This also represents the earliest reference to any vicomte in the county of Burgundy, references to vicomtes de Besançon only appearing in primary sources for the first time about 50 years later[152].  The Faucogney/Vesoul family was studied in the late 19th century by Jules Finot[153].  His family reconstruction is far from satisfactory, inadequately reflecting the primary sources in which family members are named.  In particular, Finot appears to have been unaware of the sources which confirm that Faucogney and Vesoul were transmitted to the Rougemont family in the early 13th century. 

 

 

1.         GISELBERT [I] (-after 28 Oct 1019).  Vicomte de Vesoul.  “...Gislebertus vicecomes Vesuli Castri...” witnessed the charter dated 28 Oct 1019 under which “comes Octo cognomento Vuillelmus” donated property “mihi secundum parentum successionem...infra alpes Pinninarum et flumen Padum et flumen Duriæ Bauticæ quod iuxta urbem Euoreiam” to Fruttuaria monastery[154]

 

2.         [--- .  [Vicomte de Vesoul.]  The time gap between 1019 and 1092, when Giselbert [I] and Gislebert [II] are named as vicomtes de Vesoul, suggests an intervening generation.] 

 

3.         GISELBERT [II] (-after 1092).  Vicomte de Vesoul.  Guillaume states that “Gislebert Sire de Faucogney et Vicomte de Vesoul” founded the priory of Marteroy-les-Vesoul by charter dated 1092, but does not cite the corresponding source[155].  Finot specifies that the source in question is a note in the archives of the chapter of Vesoul, referring to a prior document which no longer exists, which records the consecration of the church of Marteroy in 1092 in the presence of “Raimundi [error for Rainaudi?, indicating Renaud II Comte de Bourgogne] consulis atque Gilleberti vice-comitis[156].  As can be seen this document does not specify either Faucogney or Vesoul, Guillaume’s interpretation therefore being unreliable.

 

 

It is suggested that Aimon de Faucogney was unrelated to the earlier vicomtes de Vesoul who are named above and who, in the primary sources consulted, were unassociated with Faucogney.  It is supposed that Aimon was related to Hugues Vicomte de Vesoul, whose descendants used the name Aimon.  One possibility is that Hugues inherited the vicomté from his wife, who may have been heiress of Vicomte Giselbert [II] and who transmitted the name Giselbert to their son as shown below.

(f)        [CLEMENCE [de Faucogney] (-[1217/23]).  The parentage of Clémence has not been confirmed.  However, the charter dated 1223 quoted below is best explained if she was the daughter (or possibly grand-daughter) of Aimon Seigneur de Faucogney and was heiress of the seigneurie de Faucogney after the death of her father’s male heirs.  Her husband’s name, otherwise unconnected with the Faucogney/Vesoul family, suggests that he was seigneur de Faucogney by right of his wife.  The identity of her husband is confirmed by the following document: Faget de Casteljau records that “Renard seigneur de Faucogney et de Choiseul et Clémence sa femme” donated duties to Luxeuil (“Guillaume et Richard d’Auxelles, Guarin de la Coste et Narduin d’Annegray” renouncing their shares), in return for anniversaries for “Aymon frère de Clémence, de Renard, de Clémence, de Guillaume et de Richard d’Auxelles”, by charter dated 1205[192].  “Haymo...miles de Faucogneio” donated “decimas quas in castellania de Faucogneio ipse et mater sua a Renaudo domino de Faucogneio et Clementia uxore sua in feudum tenebant” to Luxeuil abbey, with the consent of “Raymardi domini de Faucogneio et Clementie uxoris suæ...”, by charter dated 1209[193].  “Renardus dominus de Falconii et uxor mea Clemencia” donated property “in...Vaulx...Malboans...” to Bithaine abbey, by charter dated Jan 1209 (O.S.)[194].  Faget de Casteljau records that “Renard seigneur de Choiseul, pour lui, Barthélemy son frère et Clémence son épouse” donated “des droits à Banne et...revenus à Bar-sur-Aube” to Langres chapter, with the consent of “ses sœurs Ide dame de Mereville et Helvis dame de Beaujeu”, by charter dated 1210[195]"Rainardus dominus de Faucognie", with the consent of "Clementia uxore mea", and "Guillermus et…Richardus domini de Acella" assisted at the foundation of the priory of Saint-Urbain de Saulx by charter dated 1215[196]Renardus dominus Falconii et uxor sua Clementia” donated “in decimis in parrochiatu...de Sauz” to Bithaine by charter dated 1217[197].  “Hugo Falconii et Willarii dominus” donated men and property at Citers and Ailloncourt to Luxeuil abbey, for the soul of “Clemencie quondam domine Falconii”, with the consent of “uxoris nostre Beatricis et filii nostri Hemmonis vicecomitis Visulii”, by charter dated 1223[198].  The relationship between the donor and Clémence is not specified.  m as his first wife, RAYNARD [II] Seigneur de Choiseul, son of FOULQUES Seigneur de Choiseul & his wife Alix --- (-[Mar 1238/Jun 1239]).  Seigneur de FaucogneyAimon fils de Thomas de Faucogney vir nobilis miles de Faucogneio” donated revenue “decimas quas in castellania de Faucogneio, ipse et mater sua a Renaudo domino de Faucogneio et Clementia uxore sau in fundum tenebant” to Luxeuil abbey by charter dated 1209[199].

(g)       [daughter .  In the same way that the parentage of her possible sister Clémence is discussed above, one possibility is that Lanfroi Vicomte de Vesoul inherited the vicomté by right of his wife, his name also being atypical of the Faucogney family.  If that is correct, after her supposed husband died (presumably without direct heirs), the vicomté would have passed to the son of Lanfroi’s wife’s sister Beatrix.  m LANFROI, son of --- (after 1199).  Vicomte de Vesoul.  “Lanfredus vicecomes Visulii” confirmed the donation of “grangia de Trivirs”, which had been disputed, to Bellevaux abbey made by “Huo miles filius Alfulsi” by charter dated 1199[200].]

iii)        OTHON (-after [1160]).  Humbert Archbishop of Besançon confirmed donations to Bithaine made by “Gislebertus vicecomes Visulii...dominus Falconii” and defined their respective territories, with the support of “vicecomitissa Sibilla uxor supradicti Gisleberti et filii eorum Haimo et Otto cum sorore sua Osilia”, by charter dated to before [1160][207]

b)         PIERRE de Faucogney (-1157).  Humbert Archbishop of Besançon confirmed donations made to Clairefontaine abbey, including the donation of “usuaria in toto territorio Pollencortis, Oricortis et Onormontis...” made by “Ugo vicecomes Visulii” with the consent of “Gellebertus et Petrus filii eius”, by charter dated 1150[210].  Humbert Archbishop of Besançon confirmed donations made to Clairefontaine abbey, including the donation of “usuaria in toto territorio Pollencurtis, Oricurtis et Onormontis et Dominice ville” made by “Petrus et Gellebertus frater eius, vicecomes Visulii et dominus Falconii” with the consent of “Gellebertus et Petrus filii eius”, by charter dated 1157[211].  The precedence accorded to Pierre in the second document by the order of names, compared with the first document, suggests that he may have held an ecclesiastical position.

 

 

Their name suggests that the following two family groups were descendants of a junior branch of the Faucogney family.  If this speculation is correct, no sources have been identified which indicate the precise family connection.  Another possibility is that the heads of these families were knights at Faucogney who adopted the name of the castle but were unrelated to the seigneurial family. 

 

1.         ALARD de Faucogney (-after 1174).  A charter dated 1174 records the confirmation by “Aymo dominus de Falcogneio cum Joanne filio suo”, with the support of “Adelina uxore sua et filiis suis singulis...Hugone, Pontio et Milone”, of the donation of “masnile...Devas...a prædicto Haymone...in feodum” made to Bithaine by “Alardo de Falcogneio et filiis eius Valone et Gerardo[212]m ---.  The name of Alard’s wife is not known.  Alard & his wife had two children:

8.         [ALIX (-1302, bur Baume-les-Nonnains)Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  Europäische Stammtafeln shows Alix, wife of Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny, as the possible daughter of Aimon de Faucogney [Rougemont] Vicomte de Vesoul, Seigneur de Villersexel[285].  On the other hand, Père Anselme says that Hugues’s wife was Alix de Villars Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône, daughter of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Thoire et Villars & his first wife Beatrix de Bourgogne, noting that she died in 1302 and was buried near her husband, without citing the sources on which this information is based[286].  The question is further complicated by another table in Europäische Stammtafeln which names “Alix de Rougemont Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saòne, daughter of Thibaut [III] Seigneur de Rougemont” as Hugues’s wife[287].  No primary source which might shed light on Alix’s correct parentage has been identified.  The only point on which all three secondary sources agree is that Alix was dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  The key to resolving the problem therefore appears to be establishing the succession of the seigneurie de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  As is shown in the document BURGUNDY DUCHY - BEAUNE & CHALON, no reference has been found to the Pouilly family after the death of Gérard Seigneur de Pouilly, dated to [1136/43].  It is probable that Gérard died without direct heirs and that Pouilly-sur-Saône was inherited by his sister Aiglantine and her descendants, but unfortunately no source has been identified which confirms the succession.  Phelippes dit de Vienne et sires de Paigné chevaliers et Iehane freres d’iceluy Phelippes damoiseaus, fil cay en arriers de bone heurée recordation Hugon cay en arriers conte de Vienne” reached agreement with “nostre...mere Aalys dite contesse de Vienne et cay en arriers dame de Paigné” concerning her dower by charter dated Oct 1277[288].  m HUGUES de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny, son of HUGUES Seigneur d’Antigny et de Pagny & his wife Beatrix de Vienne (-after Jul 1269, bur Baume-les-Nonnains).]

HUMBERT "le Roux" de Fouvent [dit de Jonvelle], son of HUMBERT de Fouvent & his wife --- (-after 1098).  Duchesne identifies “Humbert et Guy” as sons of “Humbert dit le Brun”, brother of Gérard [III] de Fouvent, noting that the former “Humbert dit le Roux III seigneur de Fouvent” died soon afterwards “sans lignée” and was succeeded by “Guy son frère[336]The Chronicon Besuense records that “duo fratres Humbertus Rufus et Wido filii Humberti Fontisvennæ” donated “ecclesias...citra aquam...Asmantia...” to Bèze by charter dated 1098[337]. Europäische Stammtafeln records Humbert as “dit de Jonvelle” and ancestor of the seigneurs de Jonvelle shown below[338].  The primary source which confirms that this information is correct has not been identified: maybe it was assumed because Guy [I] de Jonvelle was recorded with a brother named Humbert, as shown below. 

m ---.  The name of Humbert’s wife is not known. 

[Humbert & his wife had two children:]  

1.         [GUY [I] de Jonvelle (-after 1160).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  As noted above, Europäische Stammtafeln names Humbert de Fouvent “dit de Jonvelle” as his father[339].  Coudriet and Châtelet, in their mid-19th entury history of Jonvelle, name “Guy...sans que l’on puisse dire son origine ou celle de sa maison[340]Seigneur de Jonvelle.  “Wido de Juinvilla et Humbertus frater eius” donated “villam...Franceis” to Dijon Saint-Etienne by charter dated to [1120/24][341].  Anseric Archbishop of Besançon confirmed donations to Cherlieu, including those made by “Guido de Juncivilla”, by charter dated 1127[342].  A charter dated to [1140] records a dispute heard “a domino Guidone de Juncivilla principe...curia[343].  Guy [I] de Jonvelle confirmed donations to Clairefontaine, with the consent of “son épouse Elisabeth...son fils Bertrand et...sa belle-fille Comitissa femme de Bertrand”, by undated charter[344].  “Guy seigneur de Jonvelle” donated “la grange de Damoncourt” to Clairefontaine by charter dated 1152[345]m ELISABETH, daughter of --- (-after 1152).  Guy [I] de Jonvelle confirmed donations to Clairefontaine, with the consent of “son épouse Elisabeth...son fils Bertrand et...sa belle-fille Comitissa femme de Bertrand”, by undated charter[346]Europäische Stammtafeln names “Elisabeth de Montfort dite la Rousse”, daughter of “Ebles Comte de Montfort, Seigneur de Franzault”, as wife of Guy [I][347].  The primary source which confirms this information has not been identified.  Guy [I] & his wife had children: 

a)         BERTRAND de Jonvelle (-after 1182).  Guy [I] de Jonvelle confirmed donations to Clairefontaine, with the consent of “son épouse Elisabeth...son fils Bertrand et...sa belle-fille Comitissa femme de Bertrand”, by undated charter[348]Seigneur de Jonvelle.  “Bertrand seigneur de Jonvelle et son fils Guy” donated “un pré sis à Ormoy” to Clairefontaine by charter dated 1182[349]m COMTESSE, daughter of ---.  Guy [I] de Jonvelle confirmed donations to Clairefontaine, with the consent of “son épouse Elisabeth...son fils Bertrand et...sa belle-fille Comitissa femme de Bertrand”, by undated charter[350].  Bertrand & his wife had children:

(1)       JEAN de Jonvelle (-[1216/18?]).  “Guy de Jonvelle” confirmed the donation of pasturage rights “sur le territoire de Vougécourt” made to Clairefontaine by “Jean son fils” by charter dated 1216[356].  As Jean was old enough to make donations in his own name at that time, it appears likely that he was born from his father’s first marriage. 

Guy [II] & his [first/second] wife had one child: 

(2)       ISABELLE de Jonvelle (-after 1268).  The primary source which confirms the identity of Isabelle’s mother has not been identified.  Isabelle refers to her, but not by name, in the 1264 charter quoted below.  Coudriet & Châtelet name her “Nicholette”, referring to the same charter[357].  It is not known whether the authors had sight of another version of the same document or of another document which names Isabelle’s mother.  Dame de JonvelleSymon de Saissefonteinne dominus de Jonvile” swore allegiance to “Otho dux Meranie comes palatinus Burgundie” for “chessamentum Jonvile et castellaniam”, naming “heredem de uxore mea qui fuit filia domini Guidonis de Jonvile”, by charter dated Feb 1230 (O.S.)[358]Dodivers notes that Isabelle married secondly in 1241 Thiébaut Seigneur de Neuchâtel by whom she was childless[359]Isabel dame de Jonvile et Richard priors de Jonvile” issued a judgment against “Perrenes d’Anfonville”, committing that “mo signor Thébalt de Nouefchasteil signor de Jonvile” would consent, by charter dated early Jul 1250[360].  “Ysabeal dame de Jonville” swore allegiance to “Hugues comte palatin de Bourgoigne” for “Voisé” by charter dated 17 Jun 1263[361].  “Ysabels dame de Jonvile sor Sogne” accepted the decision of “Hugues cuens palatin et Aliz contesse palatine de Borgoigne” in a dispute between “moi...et mon si Symon de Sayssefontaine mon fil” and “Amey de Montbéliart segnor de Montfaucon...et son frère Thierri conte de Montbéliart” by charter dated 24 Jun 1263[362].  “Elisabeth domina Junciville” donated property to the priory of Villars-Saint-Marcellin, for the soul of “bone memorie matris nostre”, by charter dated Dec 1264[363].  Isabelle donated revenue “sur son four de Corre” to found anniversaries, with the consent of the children of her late son “Guy et Simon, Elisabeth et Alix”, in the presence of “Agnès leur mère, de Pierre de la Fauche leur oncle”, by charter dated 1268[364]m firstly SIMON [III] de Sexfontaines, son of --- (-before 1241).  m secondly (1241) as his second wife, THIEBAUT [II] Seigneur de Neuchâtel, son of FROMOND de Dramelay & his wife --- (-[Sep 1267/1268]).

Jonvelle was inherited by the grandson of Isabelle Dame de Jonvelle, shown above, descended from her first marriage with Simon [III] de Sexfontaines. 

 

GUY de Sexfontaines, son of SIMON [IV] de Sexfontaines & his wife Agnes de Choiseul ([1256/59]-1296 or [1303/04]).  Isabelle [de Jonvelle] donated revenue “sur son four de Corre” to found anniversaries, with the consent of the children of her late son “Guy et Simon, Elisabeth et Alix”, in the presence of “Agnès leur mère, de Pierre de la Fauche leur oncle [their stepfather]”, by charter dated 1268[366]Seigneur de Jonvelle.  “Guido dominus Jonciville domicellus” donated property to the abbey of Saint-Vincent by charter dated 10 May 1289[367].  Coudriet & Châtelet record that Guy died in 1296[368].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, he died in 1303/04[369].  The primary source which confirms which date is correct has not been identified. 

m [as her first husband,] MARGUERITE [de Ruffey Dame de Montdoré, daughter of ETIENNE Seigneur de Ruffey & his wife Beatrix ---] (-[after 28 Nov 1330]).  Coudriet & Châtelet records that Guy married in 1285 “Marguerite fille de défunt Philippe de Chavirey”, whose dowry was “la terre de Soilly en Champagne[370].  On the other hand, Europäische Stammtafeln records that Guy de Sexfontaines Seigneur de Jonvelle married firstly “Béatrice de Tilchâtel, daughter of Jean maréchal de Bourgogne & de Marie Simone de Joinville-Mornay”, and secondly in 1302 “Marguerite de Ruffey Dame de Montdoré, daughter of Etienne de Montdoré sn de Ruffey-sur-Seille & de Béatrice de Commercy”, noting that Guy’s second wife married secondly ([1304]) as his second wife, Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Longwy et de Pagny[371]Rousset provides the same information as Europäische Stammtafeln[372].  No primary source has yet been found which clarifies the question.  The following document confirms that the second wife of Hugues de Vienne was called Marguerite: the testament of “Hugues de Vienne chevaliers sires de Montmoret”, dated Apr 1315, made bequests to “...Mergeurite ma fome...[373]

 

Secondary sources show two different versions of the descendants of Guy de Sexfontaine/Jonvelle and his wife Marguerite.  The two versions, which appear irreconcilable, are shown separately below.  Primary sources which might shed light on the question have not been identified, although the Apr 1315 testament quoted in B. appears consistent with that second version.

iii)        JEANNE de Vienne (-[1411/8 Oct 1412]).  The testament of Gauthier de Vienne [seigneur de Mirebel]”, dated “Feb 1399 (O.S.)” [date should be 1390?], named as his heir “Gauthier de Vienne fils de feu Jean de Vienne son frère” with “[les] enfants de Jeanne sa sœur dame de Saint-Dizier...” as substitutes[449]The primary source which confirms her first marriage has not been identified, although the fact of the first marriage and that she had children by her first husband are indicated by the testament of her brother Gauthier.  [The question of her second marriage, suggested below, is difficult.  Père Anselme records Jeanne de Vienne and her marriage with “Simon Seigneur de Grançon” without citing the corresponding primary source[450].  Rousset names her husband Simon de Grandson” and states that Jeanne was the daughter of her father’s second marriage[451].  This seems unlikely to be correct as Jeanne is not named in the 8 Oct 1363 testament of her supposed mother, quoted above.  The primary source which confirms Jeanne’s parentage and marriage has not been identified, but it seems likely that she was the same person as Jeanne de Vienne, daughter of Henri de Vienne Seigneur de Mirebel by his first wife and that Simon de Grandson was her second husband whom she married after the death of Jean Seigneur de Rougemont and before her marriage to Edouard Seigneur de Saint-Dizier.]  Her second/third marriage is confirmed and her third/fourth marriage indicated by the following document: a charter dated 26 Sep 1402 records a claim by “Yolant de Bar et Ysabel de Bar” against “Monsieur Iean de Vergy chevalier et sa femme, Messire Ferry de Chardoines, I. de Saint-Dizier sa femme, Ieanne et Ysabel de la Haute Ribaupierre”, the former recording the descent of “Messire Edouart de Saint Disier” whose wife “Dame Ieanne de Vienne” remarried “un grand seigneur de Vergy[452].  Letters dated 1411 record the claim by “Isabellis de Barro domina d’Arques et Ioanna domina Castrivillani heredem se dicens defunctæ Ysabellis de Barro dominæ quondam de Granceio et d’Ancerville” against “Ioannam de Vienna ad presens Ioannis de Vergeio militis et antea defuncti Eduardi quondam domini de Sancto Desiderio uxorem[453].  She presumably died before 8 Oct 1412, the date of her last husband’s testament in which she is not named.  m firstly JEAN Seigneur de Rougemont, son of GUY [I] Seigneur de Rougemont & his wife Etiennette de Ruffey-sur-l’Ognon (-1375).  [m secondly SIMON de Grandson, son of JACQUES de Grandson Seigneur de Pesmes & his wife Marguerite de Vergy.]  m secondly/thirdly EDOUARD Seigneur de Saint-Dizier, son of JEAN Seigneur de Saint-Dizier et de Vignory & his wife Marie de Bar-Pierrepont (-13 Aug 1401).  m thirdly/fourthly ([Aug 1401/26 Sep 1402]) as his second wife, JEAN de Vergy Seigneur de Fouvent et de Champlitte, son of JEAN de Vergy Seigneur de Fouvent & his wife Gillette de Vienne (-25 May 1418, bur Theulay). 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 8.    SEIGNEURS de MONTFERRAND, VICOMTES de BESANÇON

 

 

Montferrand, now called Montferrand-le-Château, is located in the present-day French département of Doubs, arrondissement Besançon, canton Boussières.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Guillaume Seigneur de Montferrand who is shown below was the son of Jean de Cicon Seigneur de Montferrand[454].  The primary source which corroborates this information has not been identified.  Guillaume records that Thibaut [IV] Seigneur de Rougemont sold the vicomté de Besançon, dated to the second half of the 13th century, “au Seigneur de Montferrand, qui la transmit à Humbert Sire de Clervaux, duquel Jean de Chalon Sire d’Arlay la reçut sous la condition de la tenir de son fief[455]

 

 

1.         GUILLAUME de Montferrand (-[before 1250])Seigneur de Montferrandm ---.  The primary source which confirms the identity of Guillaume’s wife has not been identified.  Faget de Casteljau says that Isabelle de Rougemont, wife of Robert de Choiseul Seigneur de Traves, was “peut-être veuve de Guillaume de Montferrand et la mère de Pierre de Montferrand[456].  He does not discuss the basis for his conjecture, but notes that Robert de Choiseul and his wife Isabelle sold the seigneurie de Cerre-lès-Noroy, with the consent of “Thibaud de Rougemont et de Pierre de Montferrand” (no source citation) which could be explained by Pierre de Montferrand holding an interest in the property by inheritance.  Another possibility is that the property in question was one of the properties of the vicomté de Besançon which, as noted in the introduction to the present chapter, was sold by the Rougemont family to the seigneur de Montferrand.  If that is correct, there may have been no Montferrand/Rougemont family relationship.  In addition, the chronology is not ideal: the birth of Isabelle’s known husband Robert de Choiseul (by whom she had [five] children) can be estimated to [1225/30], whereas the birth of Pierre de Montferrand, son of Guillaume de Montferrand estimated to [1230/40] as shown below.  There appears to be so much uncertainty regarding Faget de Casteljau’s suggestion that it is prudent to show Guillaume de Montferrand’s wife as unknown until more data emerges.  Guillaume & his wife had children: 

a)         PIERRE de Montferrand ([1230/40]-[25 Jun 1273/13 Feb 1277])The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  His birth date is estimated from the estimated birth date of his son.  Seigneur de Montferrand.  Faget notes that Robert de Choiseul and his wife Isabelle (see above) donated “la moitié du moulin de la Verre” to Bellevaux abbey, with the consent of “Pierre de Montferrand et Thibauit fils d’Humbert de Rougemont”, by charter dated 1265[457]Vicomte de Besançon.  Faget de Casteljau records that Robert de Choiseul repurchased the “vicomté de Besançon, engagée par Pierre de Montferrand à Hugues seigneur de Thoraise”, promising to grant it to “Eudes de Rougemont archévêque de Besançon” when he reimbursed the debt, by charter dated 1276[458]m ---.  The primary source which confirms the identity of Pierre’s wife has not been identified.  Pierre & his wife had children: 

i)          EUDES de Montferrand ([1255/65]-20 Feb 1328).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  His birth date is estimated on the assumption that he was a couple years older than his wife.  Seigneur de MontferrandVicomte de BesançonEudes de Montferrand” gave “la vicomté de Besançon” to “Humbert de Clairvaux” by charter dated 1293, and in the same year Humbert de Clairvaux received the vicomté “en fief de Jean de Chalon-Arlay” and Adolf King of Germany confirmed it to “Jean de Chalon-Arlay et à Humbert de Clairvaux[459]The testament of “Hugues de Vienne chevaliers sires de Montmoret”, dated Apr 1315, made bequests to “...mon signour Houde signour de Montferrant mon...frere[460]m --- de Vienne, daughter of PHILIPPE de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny & his [first wife Agnes de Bourgogne] ([1260/70]-)Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the testament of [her brother] “Hugues de Vienne chevaliers sires de Montmoret”, dated Apr 1315, which made bequests to [her sons] “...Girart de Montferrant et a Jehan son frere mes nevours...[461].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.

Archiep.[464].  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 27 Dec 1087 under which [her son] “Guichardus eiusdem ecclesiæ canonicus et archidiaconus” donated property inherited from “matris meæ Ermenburgæ...avus meus genitor eius Humbertus...Salinis”, and which “frater meus Humbertus” later granted him, to Besançon Saint-Etienne, the same charter recording that later “Gualcherius avunculi eius Gualcherii filius”, anticipating his inheritance from the donor, claimed the property from the church but that “Gualcherius et filii mei Humbertus et Hugo” confirmed the donation[465].  Amédée & his wife had two children: 

a)         HUMBERT de Navilly .  “Guichardus eiusdem ecclesiæ canonicus et archidiaconus” donated property inherited from “matris meæ Ermenburgæ...avus meus genitor eius Humbertus...Salinis”, and which “frater meus Humbertus” later granted him, to Besançon Saint-Etienne by charter dated 27 Dec 1087[466]

The primary sources which confirm the descent of the following persons from the earlier seigneur de Neublans have not been identified, although the repetition of the names Hugues and Etienne does suggest a family connection.

ETIENNE [I] d'Oiselay, [illegitimate] son of ETIENNE [III] d’Auxonne Comte d’Auxonne & his second [wife] Blandine de Cicon ([1196/99]-after May 1269, bur Abbaye de La Charité).  His birth date is estimated from the reference in Courcelles who says that Etienne’s father married “Blandine de Cicon”, having learned of his consanguinity with his first wife Beatrix de Chalon, before that first marriage was annulled, the nullity of both marriages being declared subsequently[509].  These events appear to have occurred in [1196/99].  Stephanus comes Burgundiæ” granted property “apud Sistum et Fresne Sancti Mammeris et Torreres et Novamvillam” to “Stephano filio meo de Blandina de Cicons” and “Blandina mater eiusdem Stephani...quamdiu vivet”, provided that she would retain only half “si...capere maritum voluerit”, with the consent of “Iohannes filius meus”, by charter dated Nov 1208[510]Etienne comte de Bourgogne” granted “le château d’Oiselay, le quart du château de Jussey, la garde de Bonnevent, les fiefs de Traves excepté deux de Faucogney, de Rougemont et de Fouvent, la forteresse de Cordiron...” to “Etienne son fils” by charter dated 1237[511]Stephanus dominus de Oyseler” confirmed allegiance to “fratris mei Iohannis comitis Burgundiæ et domini Salinensis” for “castrum meum de Oyselet” granted to him by “bonæ memoriæ patris mei comitis Stephani” by charter dated 1241[512].  “Stephanus dominus d’Oiseler” donated “molendinum meum de Fresne Mamerti” to La Charité, with the consent of “uxore mea Clementia et Iohanne filio meo”, by charter dated 1242[513]Jean comte de Bourgongne et seigneur de Salins” granted “en augmentation de fief...la garde de la Charité” to “son...frere Estienne seigneur d’Oiseler” by charter dated Mar 1243 (O.S.?)[514].  “Jean cuens de Bourgongne et sire de Salins” granted rights relating “au puits de Leon” to “Estevenon son frere” by charter dated Feb 1250 (O.S.?)[515]Jehanz cuens de Borgoigne et sires de Salins” notified that “Estaines sires d’Oiseler nostre frères” had promised “Hugon conte palazin de Borgoigne nostre fil et à Alis...sa feme” not to construct a castle “ne el terretoire d’Abenans” by charter dated Jan 1256[516].  “Estienes sires d’Oiseler…et mon...nevou Symon de Jonville signour de Jayz” agreed that “Blaterens” should form part of the “signorie dou chesteal d’Arlay et dou chesteal de L’Estoille” held from “dame Lore çay en arriers fille mons.

m ([1225/40?]) CLEMENCE de Faucogney, daughter of AIMON de Rougemont Seigneur de Faucogney Vicomte de Vesoul & his wife Elisabeth --- (-4 Dec 1267).  Stephanus dominus d’Oiseler” donated “molendinum meum de Fresne Mamerti” to La Charité, with the consent of “uxore mea Clementia et Iohanne filio meo”, by charter dated 1242[520].  The necrology of La Charité records the death “11 Non Dec” 1267 of “Clementia de Faucogney domina de Oyselet[521]The primary source which confirms her parentage more precisely has not been identified.  The date of Clémence’s marriage is difficult to assess as the chronological data concerning the Faucogney family is not precise enough to draw safe conclusions about her date of birth. 

Etienne [I] & his wife had [six] children:

1.         ETIENNE [II] d’Oiselay ([1230/40]-[1274/79]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although his succession to the seigneurie d’Oiselay indicates that he was the oldest son of Etienne [I].  Seigneur d’OiselayGuillaume names “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet” when recording his marriage to “Yolande de Choiseul, fille de Rainier...Sire de Choiseul...et d’Alix de Dreux”, widow of Jean Seigneur de Ray, and states that he and his wife are named in a charter of La Charité dated 1274[522].  Etienne was presumably deceased in 1279 when his brother Guillaume swore allegiance (see below).  [m firstly ---.  No direct evidence of this supposed first marriage has been found, but [1264/74], date of his marriage to his known wife Yolande de Choiseul, would be late for a first marriage if Etienne was born during the early part of his estimated birth date range shown above.]  m [secondly] ([1264/74]) as her second husband, YOLANDE de Choiseul, widow of JEAN Seigneur de Ray, daughter of RAYNARD [II] Seigneur de Choiseul & his second wife Alix de Dreux ([1225/35]-[5 Dec 1310], bur La Charité).  Jean sire de Choiseul et d’Aigremont” confirmed a donation, with the consent of “Bertremette dite Alix dame d’Aigremont sa femme et de ses frères Renard trésorier de Reims et Robert damoiseau, de ses sœurs Yoleas femme de Jean de Ray et Agnes”, by charter dated Aug 1252[523]Guillaume records that “Ottenin ou Othes Sire de Ray chevalier” confirmed “avec Yolande Dame de Ray sa mère” the donation of “[les] dîmes de Membrey”, made to Bellevaux abbey by “Jean de Ray son père”, by charter dated 1264[524]Guillaume notes her second marriage to “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet” and records that she and her second husband are named in a charter of La Charité dated 1274[525].  Guillaume states that Yolande died 5 Dec 1310 and was buried at l’abbaye de la Charité” where an epitaph records the burial of “domina Yoland de Choisuel, domina d’Oiselet[526].  Guillaume does not quote her supposed date of death as forming part of this epitaph, which leaves open the question of the source which confirms the date. 

2.         GUILLAUME d’Oiselay ([1230/40]-after 1279)Dame Lore femme ça en arriere de...Iean Comte de Bourgongne et seigneur de Salins” declared that “Guillaume d’Oiseler son...nier fils de...Estienne seigneur d’Oiselet son...frere” had become “son homme lige”, by charter dated 1279[527].  [Seigneur d’Oiselay: no primary source has been found which accords this title to Guillaume, although his swearing allegiance in 1279 suggests that he had recently succeeded as head of the family.]  The absence of sources naming Guillaume after 1279 suggests that he died soon afterwards.  m as her frst husband, MARGUERITE de Vienne, daughter of HUGUES de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny & his wife Alix --- ([1245/50]-).  In relation to the children of Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny, Plancher notes that “quelques mémoires y ajoutent une fille...Marguerite de Vienne femme de Guillaume Baron d’Oiselet, et fils aîné d’Etienne Sire d’Oiselet” to whom her father gave “la terre et le fief de Charencey[528].  Plancher’s text suggests the absence of surviving primary sources which confirm Marguerite’s parentage and marriages.  Her and her husband’s estimated birth dates suggest that Guillaume may have had an earlier wife.  She married secondly Guillaume Seigneur de SaulxEuropáische Stammtafeln records her second marriage[529].  Père Anselme records Marguerite’s marriage to Guillaume Seigneur de Saulx, but names another daughter Agathe as the wife of Guillaume Seigneur d’Oiselay[530]The primary sources which confirms her parentage and marriages have not been identified.  Guillaume & his wife had one child: 

a)         ETIENNE [III] d’Oiselay ([1260/75]-19 Aug 1324, bur la Charité).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although his apparent succession (and the succession of his descendants) to the seigneurie d’Oiselay suggests that Etienne [III] was the son of Guillaume d’Oiselay.  Seigneur d’Oiselay

-        see below

3.         [JEAN d’Oiselay ([1240/50]-).  His date of birth, estimated from the date of his marriage, suggests that he was a younger son of Etienne [I] Seigneur d’Oiselay.  If that is correct, he was presumably too old to have been the same person as Jean d’Oiselay Seigneur de Flagey who is named below.  No indication has been found of the date of Jean’s death or whether he married again after the death of his young wife.  m (before 1272) GUILLEMETTE d’Andelot, daughter of GAUTHIER de Coligny-Andelot Seigneur de Montgiffon & his wife Alix de Commercy (-1272 or after, bur Besançon Franciscans).  “Guillemette fille de Gaultier d’Andelot chev. et femme de Jn d’Oiselet “Monte avium” damoiseau” appointed “son père...et dame Marguerite d’Andelot sa sœur femme de Pre de Jay chev.” as her heirs, chose burial “en l’église des frères mineurs de Besançon”, and appointed “son père et Gauthier de Chateauvillain son oncle” as executors, under her testament dated 1272[531].] 

4.         [--- d’Oiselay .  The chronology of the lives of the siblings Jean and Clémence suggests that they were grandchildren of Etienne [I] Seigneur d’Oiselay.  If that is correct, their father could have been either Guillaume or Jean d’Oiselay (the latter by an as yet unidentified second marriage) who are named above, or another unidentified younger son.]  m ---.  The mother of Jean and his sister(s) has not been identified.  No record has been found of Jean’s property Flagey being held by the Oiselay family before Jean, which suggests that it could have been inherited from his mother.  [Three] children:

a)         JEAN d’Oiselay ([1260/69]-6 May 1313).  The order of names in the 3 May 1301 charter quoted below indicate that Jean was older than his [cousins] Etienne Seigneur de La Villeneuve and Etienne Seigneur d’Oiselay.  Seigneur de Flagey.  The testament of [his sister] “Clemence d’Oyseler, femme ça en arriers mon soigneur Amey soigneur d’Arguel et de Rosoy”, dated 6 Mar 1296 (O.S.), appointed “mon...frere mon saignour Jahan d’Oyseler soigneur de Flagey, mon soigneur Henri de Faucoigney tresorier de Besançon...” as executors[532].  Philippe IV King of France issued a guarantee to “...Jehans d’Oiseler sires de Flagey chevaliers...Estiene d’Oiseler signour de Vilenueve, et Estevenet signour d’Oyseler escuier” (and other barons in Burgundy) relating to war in the county of Burgundy by charter dated 3 May 1301[533].  “Jehans d’Oiseler sires de Flagey” swore homage to “Jeham de Chalon signour d’Arlay” for revenues “de la salnerie de Salins” by charter dated 18 Jan 1303[534]...Jean d’Oiselet Sire de Flagey...Etienne d’Oiselet Sire de la Villeneuve...” were among the members of the league of the barons of the county of Burgundy who transferred “la forteresse de Châteauvillain” to “Jean d’Oiselet chevalier, représentant le seigneur d’Arlay” by charter dated 1303 and renewed homage by charter dated 1308[535]An epitaph in the church of la Charité records the death “le mardi après la feste S. Jaiques et de S. Philippe I may” 1313 of “messi Jehans d’Oiseler sires de Flagey[536]m HEDWIGE de Bauffremont, daughter of ---.  She is named in the charter dated 1325 quoted below.  The primary source which confirms her precise parentage has not been identified.  Jean & his wife had one child: 

i)          GUILLAUME d’Oiselay (-before 1343).  His parentage is confirmed in his marriage contract quoted below.  m (contract 1325) as her first husband, ALIX de Salins, daughter of DOMINIQUE de Salins Seigneur de Marchaut, de Pleurre et de Saint-Martin & his wife Isabelle de la Roche-sur-Ognon dame de Marchaut.  Guillaume records that Alix, daughter of Dimanche ou Dominique de Salins chevalier seigneur de Marchaut, Pleurre et Saint Martin” and his wife “Isabelle de la Roche dame de Marchaut, fille d’Otton sire de la Roche sur l’Ognon chevalier”, married “Guillaume d’Oiselet, fils de Jean d’Oiselet chevalier seigneur de Flagey et d’Edvige de Bauffremont”, by contract dated 1325[537].  She married secondly (before 1343) Guillaume Grasset de Chasoy.  Guillaume records Alix’s second marriage avant 1343[538]

b)         CLEMENCE d’Oiselay (-after 6 Mar 1297, bur Besançon Dominican Church).  The testament of “Clemence d’Oyseler, femme ça en arriers mon soigneur Amey soigneur d’Arguel et de Rosoy”, dated 6 Mar 1296 (O.S.), appointed as her heirs “mes anfanz, lesquelx je hai hau dou devant dit Amey...Guillaume, Estevenet, Jaquet, Perrin et Odin clerc”, chose burial “deanz le mostier es freres Precheurs de Besançon”, provided dowries for “Ysebel et a Katherine mes filles por lor marier”, and appointed “mon...frere mon saignour Jahan d’Oyseler soigneur de Flagey, mon soigneur Henri de Faucoigney tresorier de Besançon...” as executors[539].  The date of her marriage is assessed based on her having at least seven children before her husband died.  m ([1275/80]) AMEDEE Seigneur d’Arguel, son of GERARD Seigneur d’Arguel & his wife Beatrix de Montfaucon (-15 Mar 90, bur Besançon Saint-Etienne).  An epitaph at Besançon Saint-Etienne records the death “Id Mar” 1289 (O.S.) of “Amedeus miles dominus de Arguello[540].  The necrology of Besançon Saint-Etienne records the death “III Id Mar” of “Amedeus dominus de Erguello miles” and the donation made by “Jacobus eius filius” for his anniversary[541]

c)         [--- d’Oiselay .  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the following document: [her son] Girars de Vuaites escuiers fiz çay en arriers mons. Pierre de Vaites” swore homage to “Jehans de Chalon sires d’Allay” for property “en terretoire de Cheonville et de Loreville”, naming “Jehans mes freres”, by charter dated Feb 1304, sealed by “mon...uncle mons. Jeham d’Oyseler signour de Flagey[542]m PIERRE de Vaites, son of --- (-before Feb 1304).] 

5.         [--- d’Oiselay .  The chronology of the life of Etienne [IV] suggests that he was the grandchild of Etienne [I] Seigneur d’Oiselay.  If that is correct, his father could have been Jean d’Oiselay (by an as yet unidentified second marriage) or another unidentified younger son.  It is unlikely that he was the son of Guillaume d’Oiselay, whose supposed son named Etienne succeeded as Seigneur d’Oiselay as shown above, as there is no apparent pattern of siblings with the same name in the Oiselay family.]  m ---.  The mother of Etienne [IV] has not been identified.  No record has been found of Etienne’s property La Villeneuve being held by the Oiselay family before the late 13th/early 14th centuries, which suggests that it could have been inherited from his mother.  One child:

a)         ETIENNE [IV] d’Oiselay ([1260/70]-4 Oct 1310).  Seigneur de La Villeneuve.  A mutual aid pact was agreed between local nobility, including ...Etienne d’Oiseler sire de la Villeneuve...”, by charter dated Feb 1293 (O.S.)[543]Philippe IV King of France issued a guarantee to “...Jehans d’Oiseler sires de Flagey chevaliers...Estiene d’Oiseler signour de Vilenueve, et Estevenet signour d’Oyseler escuier” (and other barons in Burgundy) relating to war in the county of Burgundy by charter dated 3 May 1301[544].  The order of names indicates that Etienne [IV] was younger than his [cousin] Jean.  Etienne d’Oiselay sr de La Villeneuve” granted “le château et la forteresse de La Villeneuve” to “son filleul et neveu [son of his first cousin, if the reconstruction shown here is correct] Estevenot fils d’Etienne d’Oiselay”, retaining only “le domaine de sa femme Alix de Choiseul”, by charter dated 1302[545].  An undated addition listed in the same group of documents noted that “Etienne d’Oiselay chevalier sr de La Villeneuve” retook in fief “toute la part qui lui avait été adjugée dans leurs partages” from “son neveu Estevenot d’Oiselay, sieur dudit lieu[546]...Jean d’Oiselet Sire de Flagey...Etienne d’Oiselet Sire de la Villeneuve...” were among the members of the league of the barons of the county of Burgundy who transferred “la forteresse de Châteauvillain” to “Jean d’Oiselet chevalier, représentant le seigneur d’Arlay” by charter dated 1303 and renewed homage by charter dated 1308[547]Estienes d’Oyseler sires de La Vile Nueve” acted as pledge for “Jehan de Cotenans escuier” by charter dated 11 Jun 1304[548]Europäische Stammtafeln indicates Etienne’s date of death as shown above but the corresponding primary source has not been identified[549]m firstly (before 1302) ALIX de Choiseul, daughter of --- (-before Aug 1310, maybe [1303, bur Morimond]).  Etienne d’Oiselay sr de La Villeneuve” granted “le château et la forteresse de La Villeneuve” to “son filleul et neveu Estevenot fils d’Etienne d’Oiselay”, retaining only “le domaine de sa femme Alix de Choiseul”, by charter dated 1302[550]Alix’s parentage is uncertain.  Europäische Stammtafeln names “Alix (Yolande) de Choiseul, widow of Jean de Ray, daughter of Jean [I] 1303” as the wife of Etienne [IV] d’Oiselay Seigneur de La Villeneuve[551].  That is incorrect as Jean de Ray’s widow married Etienne [II] Seigneur d’Oiselay as shown above.  Faget de Casteljau indicates that Alix, wife of Etienne [IV], was the daughter of Jean [I] Seigneur de Choiseul, but a different daughter from Alix whose marriage to Guy de La Ferté-sur-Amance as shown in CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY[552].  Faget presumably relies on Père Anselme who records that “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet chevalier” and his wife Alix “fille du noble baron Jean sire de Choiseul” sold “la moitié d’un moulin, situé au finage de Dampierre” to Morimond by charter dated 1291[553].  However, as discussed below, mistaking “Etienne d’Oiselet seigneur de La Villeneuve” for “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet chevalier” would represent a major error on the part of Père Anselme who is generally accurate in recording primary sources which he has seen.  Until further information comes to light, the existence of two different individuals named Alix de Choiseul, one married to Etienne [III] Seigneur d’Oiselay, the other to Etienne [IV] d’Oiselay Seigneur de La Villeneuve, is assumed.  Several possibilities can be suggested for the correct parentage of the wife of Etienne [IV]: (1) an otherwise unrecorded daughter of Jean [II] Seigneur de Chosieul by a suggested first marriage (the possibility of which is discussed in CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY); (2) a daughter of either Renier [I] or Raynard de Choiseul, younger sons of Jean [I] Seigneur de Choiseul; (3) a daughter of Robert de Choiseul Seigneur de Traves, son of Raynard [II] Seigneur de Choiseul.  [A letter dated 4 Feb 1661, which records epitaphs then in the church of Morimond, includes “Dame Alix de Choiseul femme de Monseigneur Estienne d’Oyselet“ who died 1301 “Alias: 1303[554].  It is uncertain whether this entry refers to the wife of Etienne [IV].  The reference to “Monseigneur” suggests that the husband of the deceased may have been Seigneur d’Oiselay.  If that is correct, the epitaph could refer to the wife of Etienne [III].  Père Anselme says that Alix, wife of Etienne [III], died in 1303, presumably relying on the epitaph[555].]  Alix presumably died before Aug 1310, the date of her husband’s second marriage.  m secondly (before 31 Aug 1310) as her first husband, JACQUETTE de Grandson, daughter of JACQUES de Grandson Seigneur de Belmont & his wife --- (-after Feb 1314).  The parentage of this person is indicated by two secondary sources whose summaries of the same charter are different.  The original charter has not been seen.  Plancher records that “Jacques de Granson” granted revenue from “la terre et le château de Fresne-Saint-Mammetz” to “[sa] fille Jacques” on her marriage to “Etienne d’Oiselet Seigneur de la Villeneuve” by charter dated “le jeudi après la S. Barthelemi” 1310[556], wording which suggests that the grant (and therefore the marriage) occurred around the date of the charter when Jacquette’s father was living.  If that is correct, her father could not have been Jacques de Grandson who died [1290/1300].  Beauséjour summarises this charter differently: “Etienne d’Oiselay seigneur de la Villeneuve” acknowledged having received money assigned “sur le chastel de Fresne-Saint-Mamès...” for his marriage with “Jacquette de Grandson, fille de Jacques de Grandson seigneur de Belmont” by charter dated 31 Aug 1310[557].  This second summary does not indicate that Jacques was living either at the time of the marriage or at the date of the charter (admittedly it does not state that he was deceased either) and also suggests that the receipt could have been given (many years?) after the actual marriage.  No second Jacques de Grandson Seigneur de Belmont has been identified around this time in the Grandson family.  It is more likely therefore that Beauséjour’s summary more accurately reflects the original document and that Jacquette was the daughter of Jacques who is named above.  Etienne d’Oiselet sire de la Villeneuve” granted dower to “Jacquette de Grantson sa femme”, undated but listed in a paragraph recording papers dated 1310-1584[558].  She married secondly Jean de BayonGuillaume records that “Jacquette de Granson”, daughter of “Jacques de Granson Seigneur de Beaumont, vivant en 1300”, married firstly “Etienne d’Oiselet Sire de la Villeneuve, veuf d’Alix de Choiseul” and secondly “Jean de Boyon chevalier qui vendit Feb 1313 [O.S.?] conjointément avec sa femme à Hugues Duc de Bourgogne le château de Fresne-Saint-Mammers[559]

6.         MARGUERITE d’Oiselay (-after 29 Oct 1287).  Her parentage and two marriages are shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[560]Faget de Casteljau names her “Marguerite d’Oiselay” when recording the charter dated 29 Oct 1287, quoted below[561].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  Père Anselme states that “Guy de Joinville seigneur de Sailly“ donated “vingt sols de rente” to Ecurey, with the consent of “sa femme Marguerite”, by charter dated 1274 (no source citation)[562].  Her two marriages are confirmed by the following document: “Guis de Jenville sires de Sailley...cum Marguerite ma feme qui fut feme mon signor Phelippe de Chaunerei” sold “Meleir“ to Thibaut Comte de Bar by charter dated 29 Oct 1287[563]m firstly as his second wife, PHILIPPE Seigneur de Chavirey, son of --- (-1270).  m secondly (before 1274) GUY de Joinville Seigneur de Sailly, son of ROBERT de Joinville Seigneur de Sailly & his wife Aufélis --- (-after Aug 1304). 

 

 

No indication has been found of the parentage of the following persons: 

 

1.         AIMON d’Oiselay .  [Seigneur d’Oiselay: he is accorded this title in the 4 May 1336 testament quoted below, but no other record has been found of a Seigneur d’Oiselay of this name.]  m ---.  The name of Aimon’s wife is not known.  Aimon & his wife had one child: 

a)         HUGUES d’Oiselay (-before 4 May 1336).  He is named as deceased in the 4 May 1336 testament quoted below.  m ---.  The name of Hugues’s wife is not known.  Hugues & his wife had one child: 

i)          PIERRE d’OiselayThe testament of “Johannes dictus Kaiilez, de Ruppibus prope Monten...”, dated 4 May 1336, appointed “domno Petro de Monte avium, filio quondam Hugueneti, filii domini Haymonis de Monte avium, quondam militis” to “capellaniam...ad...Sancti Nycholay[564]

 

2.         GERARD d’Oiselay (-[after 7 Sep 1349]).  The testament of “Renauda de Monte avium domina de Freteigneyo”, dated 7 Sep 1349, refers to land she held from “Gerardo de Monte avium[565].  It is unclear from the text whether Gérard was still alive at that date or to which generation of the Oiselay family he belonged. 

 

3.         AIMON d’Oiselay (-Akrotiri 1316).  Commander of the Templars in Burgundy.  Marshal of the Knights Templars: “Aymo de Monte Avium...marescalcus dicte milicie ac tenens locum domini nostri magistri in partibus cismarinis” issued a letter dated 20 Oct 1306[566]

 

 

ETIENNE [III] d’Oiselay, son of GUILLAUME d’Oiselay & his wife Marguerite de Vienne ([1260/75]-before 3 May 1301, bur la Charité).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although his apparent succession (and the succession of his descendants) to the seigneurie d’Oiselay suggests that Etienne [III] was the son of Guillaume d’Oiselay.  The only document so far identified which names Etienne [III] is the charter dated 1302 quoted below in which he is named as father of Etienne [V].  [Seigneur d’Oiselay: no primary source has been identified which names him as such.  However, the absence of sources naming his father Guillaume after 1279 suggests that Etienne [III] succeeded as Seigneur d’Oiselay soon afterwards.]  Etienne [III] presumably died before 3 May 1301, the date of a guarantee issued by Philippe IV King of France to “...Jehans d’Oiseler sires de Flagey chevaliers...Estiene d’Oiseler signour de Vilenueve, et Estevenet signour d’Oyseler escuier” (and other barons in Burgundy) relating to war in the county of Burgundy[567].  It is unlikely that Etienne [III] was the third named individual as by that time he was too old still to have been “escuier”.  This suggested date of death is corroborated by the charter dated 17 Aug 1305 quoted below, under which “Estevenez sires d’Oyseler” swore homage to “Jeham de Chalon signour d’Arlay” for “le chestel d’Oiseler”, a renewal of homage which would have been necessary if the person named had recently succeeded as seigneur.  Etienne [III]’s place of burial is confirmed by the testament of his daughter Renaude (see below). 

m (before 1291) [ALIX de Choiseul, daughter of [JEAN [I] Seigneur de Choiseul & his [first] wife Bartholomette [Alix] d’Aigremont] (-[1301, bur Morimond]).  There is some doubt about the wife of Etienne [III].  Père Anselme records that “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet chevalier” and his wife Alix “fille du noble baron Jean sire de Choiseul” sold “la moitié d’un moulin, situé au finage de Dampierre” to Morimond by charter dated 1291[568].  Anselme indicates that Alix was the daughter of Jean [I] Seigneur de Choiseul.  However, he ignores Jean [I]’s daughter Alix whose marriage to Guy de La Ferté-sur-Amance is recorded in other sources (see the document CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY).  Other cases are known of siblings bearing the same name, although the practice was uncommon and was often associated with particular families (no other cases have been noted in the Choiseul family).  The original Morimond charter has not been seen, but Père Anselme is generally reliable in recording primary source data and there appears no reason to doubt his accuracy in this case.  Many secondary sources name “Yolande de Choiseul” as the wife of Etienne [III], which appears to confuse her with the wife of Etienne’s paternal uncle Etienne [II] (see above).  Nevertheless the names Renaud/Renaude given to two of Etienne [III]’s children, similar to “Raynard” a name typical of the Choiseul family, suggests a Choiseul ancestry for his wife.  Faget de Casteljau shows Alix named in Anselme’s extract of the 1291 charter as the daughter of Jean [I], but a different daughter from Alix who married Guy de La Ferté-sur-Amance.  However, Faget assumes that Etienne [IV] d’Oiselay Seigneur de La Villeneuve, whose wife is named in other sources as “Alix de Choiseul” (see above), was her husband[569].  Etienne [IV] was named in sources exclusively as “Seigneur de La Villeneuve”, never as “Seigneur d’Oiselay” and it appears unlikely that Anselme would have copied part of the Morimond charter incorrectly when he was so precise in reporting the parentage of the donor’s wife.  Until further information comes to light, the existence of two different individuals named Alix de Choiseul, one married to Etienne [III] Seigneur d’Oiselay, the other to Etienne [IV] d’Oiselay Seigneur de La Villeneuve, is assumed.  A letter dated 4 Feb 1661, which records epitaphs then in the church of Morimond, includes “Dame Alix de Choiseul femme de Monseigneur Estienne d’Oyselet“ who died 1301 “Alias: 1303[570].  The reference to “Monseigneur” suggests that the husband of the deceased may have been Seigneur d’Oiselay.  If that is correct, the epitaph could refer to the wife of Etienne [III], but it is also possible that it relates to the first wife of Etienne [IV] d’Oiselay Seigneur de La Villeneuve (see above).  Père Anselme says that Alix, wife of Etienne [III], died in 1303, presumably relying on the epitaph[571].  The correct date is more likely to be 1301 considering the probable date of death of her husband.] 

Etienne [III] & his wife had six children: 

1.         ETIENNE [V] d’Oiselay ([1280/90]-1335).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1302 quoted below.  Seigneur d’Oiselay.  Philippe IV King of France issued a guarantee to “...Jehans d’Oiseler sires de Flagey chevaliers...Estiene d’Oiseler signour de Vilenueve, et Estevenet signour d’Oyseler escuier” (and other barons in Burgundy) relating to war in the county of Burgundy by charter dated 3 May 1301[572].  As noted above, Etienne [III] was too old in 1301 to have still been “escuier”, so Etienne [V] must therefore have succeeded as seigneur d’Oiselay before that date.  Seigneur de La Villeneuve: “Etienne d’Oiselay sr de La Villeneuve” granted “le château et la forteresse de La Villeneuve” to “son filleul et neveu [son of his first cousin, if the reconstruction shown here is correct] Estevenot fils d’Etienne d’Oiselay”, retaining only “le domaine de sa femme Alix de Choiseul”, by charter dated 1302[573]Estevenez sires d’Oyseler” swore homage to “Jeham de Chalon signour d’Arlay” for “le chestel d’Oiseler” by charter dated 17 Aug 1305[574]Richard de Monnet chevalier...seigneur de Montsaugeon” agreed the marriage contract of “Jean son fils” and “Guyette fille de feu Jean de Thoraise seigneur dudit lieu et de Renaude d’Oiselet”, with the consent of “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet, d’Etevenet d’Oiselet damoiseau son fils...”, by charter dated 1321[575].  “Aimé seigneur de Ray chevalier” declared holding “le château de Ray” in fief from “Etienne d’Oiselay seigneur d’Oiselay, seigneur de La Villeneuve” by charter dated 1323[576]Etevenet Sire d’Oiselet” reached agreement with the monks of La Charité by charter dated 1324[577]The testament of Guyette de Thoraise...femme de noble damoiseau Jean de Montsaugeon”, dated 1327, named “Etienne d’Oiselet son oncle [her cousin, if the reconstruction shown here is correct]...” as executor[578]An epitaph at la Charité records the death in 1335 of “dominus Stephanus miles dominus d’Oiseler et Seveul[579]m MARGUERITE de Rougemont, daughter of THIBAUT [V] Seigneur de Rougemont & his wife --- (-13 Oct 1350, bur La Charité).  Guillaume records her parentage and marriage to “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet”, adding that she granted her possessions “à Chamblay” to “Béraud d’Andelot chevalier Sire de Cressia” by charter dated 1341[580]The necrology of La Charité records the death 13 Oct 1350 of “domina Marguareta de Rubeomonte uxor domini Stephani domini Montisavium[581]An epitaph at la Charité records the death 13 Oct 1350 of “dame Marguerite de Rougemont dame d’Oiseler, fome d’Estienne seigneur d’Oiseler[582].  Etienne [V] & his wife had two children: 

a)         ETIENNE [VI] d’Oiselay (-after 1321)Richard de Monnet chevalier...seigneur de Montsaugeon” agreed the marriage contract of “Jean son fils” and “Guyette fille de feu Jean de Thoraise seigneur dudit lieu et de Renaude d’Oiselet”, with the consent of “Etienne Sire d’Oiselet, d’Etevenet d’Oiselet damoiseau son fils...”, by charter dated 1321[583]

Pesmes is situated in the present-day French département of Haute-Saône, arrondissement Vesoul, canton Marnay, on the right bank of the river Ognon.  The history of the family of the seigneurs de Pesmes was studied in the late 19th century by Perchet[607]

a)         JEANNE de Pesmes (-after 7 Sep 1349, bur Pesmes).  Perchet states that “la promesse de mariage” between Othon de Grandson and Jeanne de Pesmes was dated 1323[610].  The testament of Guillaume Seigneur de Pesmes, dated “le dimanche avant la fête de l’Ascension de l’an 1327”, appointed “Jeannette de Pesmes sa fille mariée à Othe de Grandson” as his heir and named “Gilles de Courcelles son épouse...” among his executors[611]The testament of “Johanna domina de Grandisono”, dated 7 Sep 1349, requested burial “in ecclesia beati Ylarii de Pesmis”, appointed as her universal heir “filium meum Jacobum de Grandisono filiumque eciam domini Otthonis domni de Grandisono militis, domicellum”, and appointed “maritum meum...Otthonem dominum de Grandisono” as executor, witnessed by “Johanne Humberto de Grandisono canonico Bisuntino et Lausanensi...Johanne dicto Le Bastard filio Theobaldo de Grandisono...[612]m firstly (contract 1323) as his first wife, OTHON de Grandson, son of PIERRE Seigneur de Grandson & his wife Bonne de Savoie-Vaud (-[1375]).

6.         SIMON de Grandson .  [m (after 1375) as her second husband, JEANNE de Vienne, widow of JEAN Seigneur de Rougemont, daughter of HENRI de Vienne Seigneur de Mirebel & his first wife Marguerite de Bauffremont (-[1411/8 Oct 1412]).  The question of this marriage is difficult.  Père Anselme records Jeanne de Vienne and her marriage with “Simon Seigneur de Grançon” without citing the corresponding primary source[641].  Rousset names her husband Simon de Grandson” and states that Jeanne was the daughter of her father’s second marriage[642].  If her husband’s name is correct, he was presumably the son of Jacques de Grandson and his wife Marguerite de Vergy.  However, Rousset’s indication about Jeanne’s mother seems unlikely to be correct as she is not named in the 8 Oct 1363 testament of her supposed mother.  The primary source which confirms Jeanne’s parentage and marriage has not been identified, but it seems likely that she was the same person as Jeanne de Vienne, daughter of Henri de Vienne Seigneur de Mirebel by his first wife and that Simon de Grandson was her second husband whom she married after the death of Jean Seigneur de Rougemont and before her marriage to Edouard Seigneur de Saint-Dizier.  If that is correct, Jeanne married thirdly Edouard Seigneur de Saint-Dizier, and fourthly ([Aug 1401/26 Sep 1402]) as his second wife, Jean de Vergy Seigneur de Fouvent et de Champlitte.  Letters dated 1411 record the claim by “Isabellis de Barro domina d’Arques et Ioanna domina Castrivillani heredem se dicens defunctæ Ysabellis de Barro dominæ quondam de Granceio et d’Ancerville” against “Ioannam de Vienna ad presens Ioannis de Vergeio militis et antea defuncti Eduardi quondam domini de Sancto Desiderio uxorem[643].  She presumably died before 8 Oct 1412, the date of her last husband’s testament in which she is not named.] 

7.         ALIX de Grandson ([19 Aug/early Sep] 1400, bur Pesmes).  Her parentage and first marriage are confirmed by the following document: Richard d’Aucelle chevalier sr dudit lieu et de Monby” granted “sa terre et seignorie dudit Monby” to “damoyselle Alys de Granson fille de messire Jacques de Grantson sr de Pesmes et de dame Marguerite de Vergier sa femme” at the time of their marriage, by undated charter[644]The marriage contract [for her second marriage] between “Jaque de Pontoillé filz ainsné de...Guy de Pontoillié seigr de Talemet mareschal de Bourgoigne chev... et de...Marguerite Danglure sa femme” and “Aalis de Gransson fille de feu...Jaques de Grantson jaidis seig de Pesme et de...Marguerite de Veirgy”, naming “feu Richart d’Ancelle jaidis son premier mairy” and “mademoiselle de la Fauche femme de feu Guille de Grancon a present femme de Jocobt de Vergy escuier”, is dated 23 Jul 1391[645]The testament of “Margareta de Vergeyo domina de Pesmis”, dated 10 Jun 1396 published mid-Nov 1398, bequeathed property to “filie mee Alidi de Grandissono domine de Talemey...filie mee Hugonete de Grandissono domine de Poppeto...[646].  The testament of “Auliz de Grantson dame de Nores”, dated 19 Aug 1400 published early Sep 1400, chose burial “en l’esglise de Pesmes”, bequeathed property to “Jehanne de Grantson ma damoiselle...Maximinus mon nepveur seigneur de Ribaupierre...ma niepce la fille de ma suer la dame de Popet...Henriote de Grantson ma niepce”, named “feu mes sire Jaques de Pontailler mon seigneur et mary”, named “mes...nepveurs et niepce Guillaume, Anthoine et Henriote de Grantson, anffans de feu mon...frere Jehan de Grantson jaydis signeur de Pesmes” as her heirs, and appointed “Jeham de Vianne signeur de Paigney, mon...oncle...Jehan de Vergey signeur d’Autrey, mon...frere Humbert sire de Bart escuier...” as executors[647]m firstly RICHARD d’Aucelle Seigneur d’Aucelle et de Monby, son of ---.  The testament of messire Richard d’Auzelle chevalier”, undated, named “messire Jehan de Vienne admirand de France son oncle” as his heir[648].  The precise family relationship between the two has not been ascertained.  m secondly (contract 23 Jul 1391) JACQUES de Pontailler, son of GUY de Pontailler Seigneur de Talemet & his wife Marguerite d’Anglure.

Chapter 14.  SEIGNEURS de ROUGEMONT, VICOMTES de BESANÇON

 

 

Rougemont was located in the arrondissement of Baume-les-dames, in the present-day French département of Doubs[751].  This family is recorded as holding the vicomté de Besançon at least from the early 13th century as shown below.  Guillaume records that Thibaut [IV] Seigneur de Rougemont sold the vicomté, dated to the second half of the 13th century, “au Seigneur de Montferrand, qui la transmit à Humbert Sire de Clervaux, duquel Jean de Chalon Sire d’Arlay la reçut sous la condition de la tenir de son fief[752]This information is partially confirmed by the following documents: Eudes de Montferrand” gave “la vicomté de Besançon” to “Humbert de Clairvaux” by charter dated 1293, and in the same year Humbert de Clairvaux received the vicomté “en fief de Jean de Chalon-Arlay” and Adolf King of Germany confirmed it to “Jean de Chalon-Arlay et à Humbert de Clairvaux[753]

 

 

1.         THIBAUT [I] de Rougemont (-after May 1147)Seigneur de Rougemont.  Humbert Archbishop of Besançon confirmed the foundation of Grâce-Dieu abbey by “dominus Theobaldus de Rubeo Monte et dominus Richardus de Montefalcone...assensu uxorum suarum atque filiorum suorum”, in the presence of “...Henricus de Faucogney...”, by charter dated “V Non Mai” 1147[754]m ---.  The name of Thibaut’s wife is not known.  It is unlikely that she was Ponce de Traves, daughter of Thibaut Seigneur de Traves & his wife Alix --- (-15 Apr after 1157).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Aleyde comitissa qui fuit unica heres de Treva, relicta Theobaldi de Rogemont" as wife of "comitem Guilelmum" [Guillaume [III] Comte de Màcon][755].  Bouchard points out that Thibaut [I] Seigneur de Rougemont was still alive when Comte Guillaume is alleged to have married Ponce de Traves and suggests that the chronicle confused her with her mother[756].  It is more likely that Alberic confused Ponce with her sister Alix, who married Thibaut [II] Seigneur de Rougemont.  Thibaut [I] & his wife had one child: 

a)         HUMBERT [I] de Rougemont (-bur Bellevaux).  He was named in a later passage in the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which records the election in 1220 of "Gerardus Sancti Iohannis decanus, filius Theobaldi de Rogemont, filii Humberti comitis Stephani consobrinus" as archbishop of Besançon[757]m ---.  The name of Humbert’s wife is not known.  Humbert [I] & his wife had one child: 

i)          THIBAUT [II] de Rougemont (-after 1213).  He was named in a later passage in the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the election in 1220 of "Gerardus Sancti Iohannis decanus, filius Theobaldi de Rogemont, filii Humberti comitis Stephani consobrinus" as archbishop of Besançon[758]

THIBAUT [II] de Rougemont, son of HUMBERT [I] Seigneur de Rougemont & his wife --- (-after 1213).  He was named in a later passage in the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the election in 1220 of "Gerardus Sancti Iohannis decanus, filius Theobaldi de Rogemont, filii Humberti comitis Stephani consobrinus" as archbishop of Besançon[759]Seigneur de Rougemont.  Vicomte de Besançon.  Thibaut de Rougemont witnessed the charter dated 1213 which confirms a donation to Theulley[760]

m ALIX [de Traves, daughter of THIBAUT Seigneur de Traves & his wife Alix ---].  Guillaume names “Alix de Trave fille de Thibaud II Sire de Trave et sœur de Poncette de Trave, femme de Guillaume Comte de Mâcon” as wife of Thibaut [II] de Rougemont but does not cite the primary source which confirms this information[761]The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified. 

Thibaut [II] & his wife had three children: 

1.         THIBAUT [III] de Rougemont (-after 1259).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names “Humbertum et Theobaldum” as the brothers of "Gerardus Sancti Iohannis decanus..." archbishop of Besançon[762].  It is assumed that Thibaut was older than his brother Humbert, despite the order in which their names appear in Alberic, because he inherited his father’s viscomital title.  Seigneur de Rougemont.  Vicomte de Besançon.  “Theobaudus dominus de Rubeomonte” swore homage to “Joannis comitis Burgundiæ et domini Salinensis”, except for his responsibility to the archbishop of Besançon, by charter dated late Jan 1242[763]Guillaume records that Thibaut [III] donated property to La Charité, with the consent of “Thibaud et Hugues ses petits-fils”, by charter dated 1251[764]Thibaut de Rougemont approved an agreement between “Robert de Choiseul son gendre” and the monks of La Charité by charter dated 1259[765]m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Thibaut’s wife has not been identified.  Thibaut [III] & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         HUMBERT [III] de Rougemont (-after 1239).  Guillaume records that he was named with his father in charters for the abbeys of Battant, La Charité and Grace de Dieu, dated 1230, 1233 and 1239 respectively[766]m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Humbert’s wife has not been identified.  Humbert [III] & his wife had three children: 

i)          THIBAUT [IV] de Rougemont (-after 1289)Guillaume records that Thibaut [III] donated property to La Charité, with the consent of “Thibaud et Hugues ses petits-fils”, by charter dated 1251[767]Seigneur de Rougemont.  Vicomte de Besançon. 

-         see below

ii)         HUGUES de RougemontGuillaume records that Thibaut [III] donated property to La Charité, with the consent of “Thibaud et Hugues ses petits-fils”, by charter dated 1251[768]

iii)        EUDES de Rougemont (-23 Jun 1301, bur Bellevaux).  Archbishop of Besançon 1268.  The necrology of Besançon Saint-Etienne records the death “VIII Kal Jul” of “Odo archiepiscopus Bisuntinus de Rubeomonte” and his donation[769]

b)         ISABELLE de Rougemont (-1290, bur Morimond).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1259 under which [her father] Thibaut de Rougemont approved an agreement between “Robert de Choiseul son gendre” and the monks of La Charité[770].  Her latest marriage date is estimated from the latest marriage date of her son, shown below.  Faget de Casteljau says that Isabelle was “peut-être veuve de Guillaume de Montferrand et la mère de Pierre de Montferrand[771]He does not discuss the basis for his conjecture, but notes that Robert de Choiseul and his wife Isabelle sold the seigneurie de Cerre-lès-Noroy, with the consent of “Thibaud de Rougemont et de Pierre de Montferrand” (no source citation) which could be explained by Pierre de Montferrand holding an interest in the property by inheritance.  Another possibility is that the property in question was one of the properties of the vicomté de Besançon which was sold by the Rougemont family to the seigneur de Montferrand.  If that is correct, there may have been no Montferrand/Rougemont family relationship.  In addition, the chronology is not ideal: the birth of Isabelle’s known husband Robert de Choiseul (by whom she had [five] children) can be estimated to [1225/30], whereas the birth of Pierre de Montferrand, son of Guillaume de Montferrand estimated to [1230/40] as shown below.  Faget notes that Robert and Isabelle donated “la moitié du moulin de la Verre” to Bellevaux abbey, with the consent of “Pierre de Montferrand et Thibauit fils d’Humbert de Rougemont”, by charter dated 1265[772].  Faget de Casteljau records that Robert de Choiseul repurchased the “vicomté de Besançon, engagée par Pierre de Montferrand à Hugues seigneur de Thoraise”, promising to grant it to “Eudes de Rougemont archévêque de Besançon” when he reimbursed the debt, by charter dated 1276[773]According to Dubois, an inscription at Morimond records the burial of “Robert de Choiseul seigneur de Traves et Isabelle de Rougemont sa femme” who died 1280 and 1290[774].  This epitaph is not recorded in the letter dated 4 Feb 1661 which records epitaphs of other members of the Choiseul family.  The accuracy of Dubois’s report cannot be judged.  [m firstly GUILLAUME Seigneur de Montferrand, son of --- (-before [1250]).] m [secondly] (before [1250]) ROBERT de Choiseul Seigneur de Traves, son of RAYNARD [II] Seigneur de Choiseul & his second wife Alix de Dreux ([1225/30]-1280, bur Morimond). 

c)         [ALIX (-1302, bur Baume-les-Nonnains)Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  Europäische Stammtafeln names “Alais de Rougemont Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saòne, daughter of Thibaut [III] Seigneur de Rougemont” as wife of Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny[775].  On the other hand, Père Anselme states that Hugues’s wife was Alix de Villars Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône, daughter of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Thoire et Villars & his first wife Beatrix de Bourgogne[776].  The question is further complicated by another table in Europäische Stammtafeln which shows Hugues’s wife as Alix de Faucogney, possible daughter of Aimon de Faucogney [Rougemont] Vicomte de Vesoul, Seigneur de Villersexel[777].  No primary source which might shed light on Alix’s correct parentage has been identified.  The only point on which all three secondary sources agree is that Alix was dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  The key to resolving the problem therefore appears to be establishing the succession of the seigneurie de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  As is shown in the document BURGUNDY DUCHY - BEAUNE & CHALON, no reference has been found to the Pouilly family after the death of Gérard Seigneur de Pouilly, dated to [1136/43].  It is probable that Gérard died without direct heirs and that Pouilly-sur-Saône was inherited by his sister Aiglantine and her descendants, but unfortunately no source has been identified which confirms the succession.  Phelippes dit de Vienne et sires de Paigné chevaliers et Iehane freres d’iceluy Phelippes damoiseaus, fil cay en arriers de bone heurée recordation Hugon cay en arriers conte de Vienne” reached agreement with “nostre...mere Aalys dite contesse de Vienne et cay en arriers dame de Paigné” concerning her dower by charter dated Oct 1277[778].  m HUGUES de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny, son of HUGUES Seigneur d’Antigny et de Pagny & his wife Beatrix de Vienne (-after Jul 1269, bur Baume-les-Nonnains).]
