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:

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 de Chalon, son of HUGUES [I] Seigneur d'Arlay et de Vitteaux [Bourgogne-Comté] & his wife Beatrix de la Tour du Pin (-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[36]Seigneur d'Arlay, d'Arguel et de Cuiseaux.  An attestation given 18 Feb 1437 by the abbot of Mont-Sainte-Marie records the death in 1362 of “Jean le Grand” buried in the Chalon chapel[37]

6.         JEANNE de Chalon (-1380, bur Theulay)The primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  His epitaph at Theulay records the death in 1418 of “Jehans de Vergey chevalier sieur de Fonvenz et de Champlitte et sénéchaux de Bourgogne” and of “Jehanne de Chalon sa femme” who died in 1380[59]m (31 Aug 1372) as his first wife, JEAN de Vergy Seigneur de Fouvent et de Champlitte, son of JEAN de Vergy “le Borgne” Seigneur de Fouvent, de Champlitte et d’Autrey & his wife Gillette de Vienne (-25 Nov 1418, bur Theulay). 

Jean had one possible illegitimate child by an unknown mistress:

7.          [JEAN bâtard de Chalon .  He is named in the 1403 charter dated below.  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that he was the illegitimate son of Jean de Chalon Seigneur d’Arlay (who died 1362).  m ---.  The name of Jean’s wife is not known.  Jean & his wife had two children: 

a)         JEANNE [de Chalon] (-after 1403).  “Jean de Chalon-Arlay prince d’Orange” confirmed a donation revenue made in 1392 by “son oncle Jean bâtard de Chalon seigneur de Montrichard et sa tante Jeanne femme du précédent” to “Jean de Fallerans leur écuyer” by charter dated 1399[60].  The relationships “oncle...tante” in this extract are difficult to understand.  Jean de Chalon-Arlay Prince d’Orange, son of Louis de Chalon-Arlay was only remotely related to Jean bâtard de Chalon: Jean [II] de Chalon Comte d’Auxerre, father of the bastard, was the great-grandson of Jean [I] “l’Antique” Comte de Chalon Seigneur de Salins, while Louis was his great-great-grandson,.  If this was the family relationship described in the 1399 charter, it would represent an unusually extended use of “oncle...tante”.  One possibility to explain a closer family relationship is that Jean bâtard de Chalon’s wife was closely related to Jean de Chalon Prince d’Orange.  This would also explain the presence of Jeanne herself in the charter, which is another circumstance which is otherwise difficult to explain.  Jeanne’s precise parentage is confirmed by the following document: Jean de Chalon sire d’Arlay et prince d’Orange” settled a dispute between “Jeanne de Montrichard dame de Toulongeon” and “Jean sire de Cottebrune” regarding the succession of “Jean bâtard de Chalon, leur père et aïeul”, by charter dated 1403[61]m JEAN bâtard de Chalon Seigneur de Montrichard, illegitimate son of JEAN [II] de Chalon Comte d’Auxerre & his mistress --- (-after 1398, maybe before 1399). 

b)         --- [de Chalon] (-before 1403).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the following document: Jean de Chalon sire d’Arlay et prince d’Orange” settled a dispute between “Jeanne de Montrichard dame de Toulongeon” and [her son] “Jean sire de Cottebrune” regarding the succession of “Jean bâtard de Chalon, leur père et aïeul”, by charter dated 1403[62].  m --- Seigneur de Cottebrune, son of ---.

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[137].  The Faucogney/Vesoul family was studied in the late 19th century by Jules Finot[138].  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[139]

 

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[140].  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[141].  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. 

 

1.         AIMON de Faucogney (-after [1133]).  [Seigneur] de Faucogney.  “Haimone Falconiense, Gerardoque atque Hugone Grangias, Haimoneque Sancte Marie” are the three lay witnesses to the charter dated 20 Jun 1118 which records the transfer of relics of St. Columbin to Lure[142].  Janauschek states that Bithaine abbey was founded by “Aymone de Faucogneyo[143].  Humbert Archbishop of Besançon confirmed that “dominus Haimo Falconii” founded Bithaine, in the presence of “filiis suis Henrico...Othone et Rodulpho”, by charter dated “V Id Feb” 1146 (O.S.)[144].  Manrique dates the foundation to “III Kal Mai” 1133 but does not cite the corresponding primary source[145]m ---.  The name of Aimon’s wife is not known.  Aimon & his wife had three children: 

a)         HENRI de Faucogney (-after [1170]).  Humbert Archbishop of Besançon confirmed that “dominus Haimo Falconii” founded Bithaine, in the presence of “filiis suis Henrico...Othone et Rodulpho”, by charter dated “V Id Feb” 1146 (O.S.)[146].  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[147].  Pope Alexander III confirmed donations, including that “Henricus Falconiensis” granted pasturage rights at Faucogney to “domui Fontis” owned by Lure abbey dated to [1170], by charter dated 1178[148]

b)         OTHON (-after Feb 1147).  Humbert Archbishop of Besançon confirmed that “dominus Haimo Falconii” founded Bithaine, in the presence of “filiis suis Henrico...Othone et Rodulpho”, by charter dated “V Id Feb” 1146 (O.S.)[149]

(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[177].  “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[178].  “Renardus dominus de Falconii et uxor mea Clemencia” donated property “in...Vaulx...Malboans...” to Bithaine abbey, by charter dated Jan 1209 (O.S.)[179].  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[180]"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[181]Renardus dominus Falconii et uxor sua Clementia” donated “in decimis in parrochiatu...de Sauz” to Bithaine by charter dated 1217[182].  “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[183].  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[184].

(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[185].]

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][192]

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[195].  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[196].  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[197]m ---.  The name of Alard’s wife is not known.  Alard & his wife had two children:

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[371].  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[372]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[373]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[374].  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[375].  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[376].  [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]-).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriages has not been identified.  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[377].  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 de Saulx.  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[378].] 

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[379].  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[380].  “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[381]...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[382]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[383]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[384].  She married secondly (before 1343) Guillaume Grasset de Chasoy.  Guillaume records Alix’s second marriage avant 1343[385]

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[386].  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[387].  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[388]

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.  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[390].  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[391].  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[392]...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[393]Estienes d’Oyseler sires de La Vile Nueve” acted as pledge for “Jehan de Cotenans escuier” by charter dated 11 Jun 1304[394]Europäische Stammtafeln indicates Etienne’s date of death as shown above but the corresponding primary source has not been identified[395]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[396]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[397].  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[398].  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[399].  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[400].  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[401].]  Alix presumably died before Aug 1310, the date of her husband’s second marriage.  m secondly (contract [25/31] Aug 1310) as her first husband, JACQUETTE de Grandson, daughter of JACQUES de Grandson Seigneur de Beaumont & his wife --- (-after Feb 1314).  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[402]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[403].  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[404]

6.         MARGUERITE d’Oiselay (-after 29 Oct 1287).  Her parentage and two marriages are shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[405]Faget de Casteljau names her “Marguerite d’Oiselay” when recording the charter dated 29 Oct 1287, quoted below[406].  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)[407].  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[408]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[409]

 

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[410].  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[411]

 

 

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[412].  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[413].  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[414].  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[415].  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[416].  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[417].  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[418]Estevenez sires d’Oyseler” swore homage to “Jeham de Chalon signour d’Arlay” for “le chestel d’Oiseler” by charter dated 17 Aug 1305[419]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[420].  “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[421]Etevenet Sire d’Oiselet” reached agreement with the monks of La Charité by charter dated 1324[422]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[423]An epitaph at la Charité records the death in 1335 of “dominus Stephanus miles dominus d’Oiseler et Seveul[424]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[425]The necrology of La Charité records the death 13 Oct 1350 of “domina Marguareta de Rubeomonte uxor domini Stephani domini Montisavium[426]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[427].  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[428]
