The county of Bar-sur-Aube lay east of the county of Troyes, having evolved from the pagus Barrensis within the ecclesiastical diocesis of Langres.  It covered the same territory as the ecclesiastical doyenné of Bar-sur-Aube[1].  A charter dated 22 Sep 829 in the cartulary of Montiérender refers to "res…in pago Barrense" and is dated "Barrense castro sive ad Morimunt"[2].  No record has been found of any comtes de Bar-sur-Aube before the early 11th century, although the castle referred to in the 829 document was presumably governed by a series of comtes or vicomtes about whom no information has survived.  Details concerning the family of the first known comtes de Bar-sur-Aube are included in the Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, which is based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude[3].  The county passed by marriage to the comtes de Valois in the mid-11th century.  After the death of Raoul [III] Comte de Valois, the county passed to Thibaut III Comte de Blois.  As discussed below, there is some doubt whether Comte Thibaut III was the son-in-law of Comte Raoul [III], but in the absence of a family relationship his justification for acquiring Bar-sur-Aube is unclear.  One of his first acts was confirmation of donations to the abbey of Saint-Claude made by the earlier comtes de Bar-sur-Aube: "Teubaldus comes", at the request of "domni Symonis comitis", confirmed donations of property "in terra Barrensi" made by "comes Notcherius et Rodulphus et Symon comes" by charter dated 1076[4].  Unfortunately the document makes no mention of the relationship between the parties.  Thereafter the county of Bar-sur-Aube remained in the possession of the comtes de Blois and comtes de Champagne.  Their feudal relationship with the bishops of Langres is unclear, given that the bishops were suzerains of Bar-sur-Aube in the early 12th century: Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Barrum super Albam...”, by bull dated [1105][5].  In the mid-19th century, Henri d’Arbois de Jubainville studied the history of Bar-sur-Aube during the governance by the comtes de Champagne and, in his introduction, he summarises the county’s previous history[6]

 

The county of Bar-sur-Seine was located south-east of Troyes, in the present-day French département of Aube.  It lay within the pagus Latiscensis, within the diocese of Langres, and was co-terminous with the ecclesiastical doyenné of Bar-sur-Seine[7].  From [1046] at least, the county was held by the comtes de Tonnerre.  The bishops of Langres were suzerains of Bar-sur-Seine in the early 12th century: Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Barrum super Sequanam...”, by bull dated [1105][8].  It was later transmitted to the family of the comtes de Brienne by the marriage of Eustachie, sister of Hugues-Rainard Comte de Tonnerre et de Bar-sur-Seine, and Gauthier [I] Comte de Brienne.  It was inherited by Hugues [IV] du Puiset Vicomte de Chartres as a result of his marriage to Petronille, daughter of Milon de Brienne Comte de Bar-sur-Seine.  In 1220, the county was sold to the Comte de Champagne by the heirs of the Puiset family.

NOCHER [I] de la Ferté-sur-Aube, son of ACHARD de la Ferté-sur-Aube & his wife [Achardia ---] (-after 1011).  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, records that "Rodulpho (Simonis genitori)" married three wives, firstly "Adela, Nocheri Barrensis ad Albam comitis filia, Notheri comitis Suessionum neptis, Achardi proneptis" who had previously married "Rainaldum de Sinemuro, Rainardum comitem de Jooniaco, Rotgerium de Wangionis ripa"[9]Comte de Bar-sur-Aube.  "Fulchone Suessionis episcopo ac comite Notcherio fratribus" supported a donation by "Vualterius Eduorum…episcopus" of property to the abbey of Flavigny by charter dated 1011, subscribed by " Fulco episcopus Sessionis civitatis, Beraldi nepotis eius, Notcherii comitis, Notcherii filii eius, Adelise comitisse"[10]

m ([992]) [as her second husband,] ADELISA, [widow of GUY Comte de Soissons,] daughter of [GILBERT/GISELBERT Comte & his wife ---].  "…Notcherii comitis, Notcherii filii eius, Adelise comitisse" subscribed the charter dated 1011 under which "Fulchone Suessionis episcopo ac comite Notcherio fratribus" supported a donation by "Vualterius Eduorum…episcopus" of property to the abbey of Flavigny[11].  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, records that "Nocherius seu Nocherus, Achardi filius" married in 992 "Alaidem comitissam Suessionensem, filiam comitis Gilberti, viduam Guidonis Viromanduensis, et matrem Rainaudi comitis Suessionensem"[12].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[13], she was Adelisa Ctss de Soissons, daughter of Guy Comte de Soissons & his wife ---.  It is uncertain which version is correct, but as noted below under Renaud Comte de Soissons there are indications that the Acta Sanctorum version provides a more credible explanation of events. 

Nocher [I] & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         NOCHER [II] (-[1019/40]).  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, names "alius Nocherius, Wido…clericus, frater eius" as the two sons of "Nocherius comes Suessionem"[14]Comte de Bar-sur-Aube

-        see below

2.         GUY .  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, names "alius Nocherius, Wido…clericus, frater eius" as the two sons of "Nocherius comes Suessionem"[15]

3.         [RENAUD [I] (-1057)Comte de Soissons.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[16], Renaud was the possible son of Nocher Comte de Bar-sur-Aube & his wife Adelisa Ctss de Soissons.  This is consistent with the same source stating that Nocher’s wife was the daughter, not the widow, of Guy Comte de Soissons, but the primary source (if any) on which the information is based has not been identified.  On the other hand, the Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, records that "Nocherius seu Nocherus, Achardi filius" married in 992 "Alaidem comitissam Suessionensem, filiam comitis Gilberti, viduam Guidonis Viromanduensis, et matrem Rainaudi comitis Suessionensem"[17].  As Renaud named his son Guy, it appears more likely that the Acta Sanctorum version is correct.]

NOCHER [II], son of NOCHER [I] Comte de Bar-sur-Aube & his wife Adelisa --- (-[1019/40]).  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, names "alius Nocherius, Wido…clericus, frater eius" as the two sons of "Nocherius comes Suessionem"[18].  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1011 under which "Fulchone Suessionis episcopo ac comite Notcherio fratribus" supported a donation by "Vualterius Eduorum…episcopus" of property to the abbey of Flavigny, subscribed by "…Notcherii comitis, Notcherii filii eius, Adelise comitisse"[19]Comte de Bar-sur-Aube

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

Nocher [II] & his wife had two children: 

1.         AELIS ([1020/25]-11 Sep 1053).  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, records that "Rodulpho (Simonis genitori)" married three wives, firstly "Adela, Nocheri Barrensis ad Albam comitis filia, Notheri comitis Suessionum neptis, Achardi proneptis" who had previously married "Rainaldum de Sinemuro, Rainardum comitem de Jooniaco, Rotgerium de Wangionis ripa"[20].  Considering the date of her first marriage, and that she had several children by her fourth husband, it is unlikely that Aelis was born before [1020/25].  Ctss de Bar-sur-Aube.  Her marital history is recorded in the Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois: after the death of her first husband, "Rodulfus comes Calvimontis Vallis Cassini" [identified as her future fourth husband] visited "castellum Barri" who proposed marriage, the ceremony to take place after his return from a pilgrimage to Rome, but as the proposal displeased "primoribus terræ illius" they married her during Raoul’s absence to "Rainardo comiti de Jooniaco".  After Raoul returned, he besieged "Jooniacum castellum" and abducted Aelis to "castello Firmitatis", wanting to assure himself that she was not pregnant before marrying her.  While there, the inhabitants of Bar-sur-Aube married her again to "Rotgerio de Wangionis ripa", after which Raoul ravaged the countryside until they returned Aelis to him[21].  Her son "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter[22]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Adala" wife of "comitis Veromandie [error for Valois] Rodolfi" and mother of "Symonem et filiam…Adala", but does not give her origin[23].  "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter, the entry stating that "Adelina comitissa" died "III Id Sep"[24]m firstly (1040) RENAUD de Semur-en-Brionnais, son of GEOFFROY I Seigneur de Semur & his first wife --- de Brioude.  m secondly ([1040/42], separated) RENARD Comte de Joigny, son of GEOFFROY de Joigny & his wife Alix de Sens.  m thirdly ([1041/43], separated) as his second wife, ROGER [I] avoué de Vignory, son of GUY [I] de Vignory & his wife --- (-before 1057).  m fourthly ([1041/45]) as his first wife, RAOUL [III] Comte de Valois, du Vexin, d'Amiens et de Vitry, son of RAOUL [II] Comte de Valois & his wife [--- de Breteuil] (-Péronne 23 Feb or 8 Sep 1074, bur Montdidier, later transferred to Crépy-en-Valois, église collégiale Saint-Arnoul).  The county of Bar-sur-Aube was transmitted to the children of Aelis’s fourth marriage. 

2.         ISABELLE .  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, names "comitissam…Adelhida et Isabel" as the two daughters of Nocher [II] Comte de Bar-sur-Aube, adding that Isabelle married "Galterius de Clamice" by whom she had "filium Rodulphum" who was strangled "apud Firmitatem jam juvenis"[25]m GAUTHIER de Clamecy, son of ---.  One child: 

a)         RAOUL de Clamecy (-murdered La Ferté-sur-Aube ----).  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, names "comitissam…Adelhida et Isabel" as the two daughters of Nocher [II] Comte de Bar-sur-Aube, adding that Isabelle married "Galterius de Clamice" by whom she had "filium Rodulphum" who was strangled "apud Firmitatem jam juvenis"[26]

 

 

 

B.      COMTES de BAR-sur-AUBE (VALOIS)

 

 

The following outline shows information relevant to the county of Bar-sur-Aube.  Full details of this family are shown in the document NORTHERN FRANCE NOBILITY. 

 

RAOUL [III] de Valois, son of RAOUL [II] Comte de Valois & his wife Adela de Breteuil (-Péronne 23 Feb or 8 Sep 1074, bur Montdidier, later transferred to Crépy-en-Valois, église collégiale Saint-Arnoul).  He succeeded [1030/35] as Comte de Valois.  He succeeded his cousin Gauthier [III] as Comte d'Amiens et du Vexin. 

m firstly ([1041/45]) as her fourth husband, AELIS de Bar-sur-Aube, widow firstly of RENAUD de Semur-en-Brionnais, secondly of RENARD Comte de Joigny and thirdly of ROGER [I] avoué de Vignory, daughter and heiress of NOCHER [II] Comte de Bar-sur-Aube et de Vitry-en-Perthois & his wife --- (([1020/25]-11 Sep 1053).  Ctss de Bar-sur-Aube (see above). 

Raoul [III] & his first wife had children:

1.         GAUTHIER de Valois (-killed in battle 6 Sep [1065/1067]).  "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter, the entry stating that "Walterius comes" died "VIII Id Sep"[27]Comte [de Bar-sur-Aube].  As his father was still alive at the time, it is supposed that Gauthier’s county was Bar-sur-Aube, inherited from his mother, but this is not beyond all doubt. 

2.         SIMON de Valois (-Rome [30 Sep/1 Oct] 1080, bur 1082 Rome St Peter)Comte de Valois, d'Amiens, et de Montdidier, Comte de Bar-sur-AubeHe resigned his counties in 1077 and became a monk. 

3.         [ADELA [Alix] de Valois (-12 May [1093/1100], bur Saint-Faron).  It is unclear whether the [second/third] wife of Thibaut III Comte de Blois could have been the daughter of Comte Raoul [III].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Alaydis soror sancti Symonis" as wife of "comiti Campanie Theobaldo", although he confuses her with her supposed niece Adelais, daughter of Héribert [IV] Comte de Vermandois, saying that she married "Hugoni fratri regis Philippi" after the death of her husband[28].  The difficulty with Alberic’s statement is an undated charter, quoted by Acta Sanctorum, under which "Rodulfus comes" donated property to Saint-Rémy, confirmed by "Symonem filium meum, duos quoque generos meos, quos de filiabus meis habeo, id est Heribertum comitem et juvenem…Bartholomeum"[29].  If the wife of Comte Thibaut III had been another daughter of Raoul [III], it is unclear why he would have been omitted from this document which appears to indicate clearly that Raoul had only two sons-in-law.  Nevertheless, a close relationship with the family of the comtes de Valois is indicated by a charter dated to [1077/81] under which "Teobaudus comes palatinus…cum mulierum Adelaide" donated property to Montiérender, naming "bone memorie predecessorum…patris sui Odonis comitis et Heriberto cognomento senioris…comes Rodulfus predecessor suus et propinquus"[30], the latter presumably referring to Comte Raoul [III].  In addition, Comte Thibaut acquired the county of Bar-sur-Aube.  If he had not been Raoul’s son-in-law, the basis for this acquisition is unclear.  m (before 1061) as his [second/third] wife, THIBAUT III Comte de Blois, Chartres et Champagne, son of EUDES II Comte de Blois, Chartres, Troyes et Champagne & his second wife Ermengarde d'Auvergne ([1010]-29/30 Sep 1089).  Comte de Bar-sur-Aube, presumably after 1077, maybe de iure uxoris.]

A.      SEIGNEURS de CHÂTEAUVILLAIN

 

 

Châteauvillain is located about 5 kilometres south-east of La Ferté-sur-Aube, 15 kilometres south-west of Chaumont, in the present-day French département of Haute-Marne.  In medieval times it straddled the border between the county of Bar-sur-Aube to the north and the pagus Lingonicus (Langrois) to the south.  The seigneurie de Châteauvillain was acquired by the seigneurs de Broyes in the later 12th century, probably through the second marriage of Hugues [III] Seigneur de Broyes with Isabelle de Dreux[31]

 

 

SIMON [I] de Broyes, son of HUGUES [III] Seigneur de Broyes et de Châteauvillain & his second wife Isabelle de Dreux Dame de Baudémont [Capet] ([1179/83]-before Jan 1260).  His parentage is confirmed by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which records the death in 1239 of his mother "Isabella domna de Baia, mater Symonis de Castro Villani"[32].  “Hugo Brecarum et Castelli-Villani dominus” founded the hospital des Bonshommes, with the consent of “Helisabeth uxoris meæ et infantium nostrorum Simonis et Amelinæ”, by charter dated 1184[33]"Hugo dominus Brecarum" donated property to Clairvaux, with the consent of "Elisabeth uxor mea et Symon filius meus junior et Emelina filia mea domina de Chanlita", by charter dated 1200[34]Seigneur de Châteauvillain et d'Arc-en-Barrois.  Symon dominus Castrivillani" recorded an agreement with "comitem Theobaldum", naming "Symone domino Commarceii fratre meo primogenito", by charter dated May 1208[35].  “Helizabel domina Castri Villani et...Simon de Castro Villani filius eius” transferred “motam et fortericiam Vaudemonti et...Corbeson, Soysi, Thomines et Estrechi, et Waisiam” to Blanche comtesse de Champagne and her son by charter dated Feb 1210[36].  "Simon Seigneur de Châteauvillain chevalier" confirmed the donations of his father Hugues de Broyes to the abbey of Andecy by charter dated 1219[37]"Simon dominus Castrivillani...et...mater mea et Aalis uxor mea" confirmed donations to Recluse made by “pater meus Hugo quondam dominus Brecarum” by charter dated Oct 1225[38]"Simons sires de Chastelvilain" confirmed donations to Recluse, with the consent of “Aalis ma femme...Iehans de Chastelvillain chevalier filz dou devant dit Symont”, by charter dated Jun 1253[39].  “Ioannes dominus Castrivillani” founded the chapter of Châteauvillain, for the soul of “bonæ memoriæ Simonis quondam patris mei”, by charter dated 1260[40]

1.         ACHARD de la Ferté-sur-AubeThe Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, names "Achardi" as the ancestor of the comtes de Bar-sur-Aube who are set out below, stating that he was "genere Normannum" and that he founded "Firmitatis ad Albam" {La Ferté-sur-Aube}[130]m [ACHARDIA], daughter of ---.  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of Saint-Simon de Valois names "Achardia" as the wife of "Achardi"[131].  The name is improbable, as it appears to be the feminine version of her husband’s name.  Achard & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         NOCHER [I] de la Ferté-sur-Aube (-after 1011)

-        COMTES de BAR-sur-AUBE.

ii)         [daughter .  "Humbertus archidiaconus…avunculus meus Beraldus archidiaconus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [15 Feb 1023][135] which, if avunculus is used in its strict sense, indicates that the mother of archdeacon Humbert was the sister of archdeacon Béraud.  m HENRI Seigneur de Vergy, [illegitimate son of HENRI Duke of Burgundy & his mistress ---] (-before 1023).] 

 

 

La Ferté is recorded from the early 12th century in the family of the Seigneurs de Châtillon (see Chapter 4 below).  The basis on which they acquired the territory, whether by inheritance or purchase, has not been ascertained.  In the early 13th century, a vicomté de la Ferté-sur-Aube is recorded briefly.  It is not known whether the family of these vicomtes was related to the seigneurs de Châtillon.  The circumstances of the creation of this vicomté have not been ascertained.

m ---.  The primary source which confirms the identity of Gauthier’s wife has not been identified. 

Gauthier & his wife had two children: 

1.         VILAIN [I] de Nully (-killed in battle Asia Minor [1202/04]).  Gauthier de Nully donated property to Boulancourt, naming his two sons Vilain and Guillaume, in a charter dated 1174[147].  Villehardouin names “...Vilains de Nuilli...Guillaumes de Nuilli...” among those who left from Champagne on crusade in 1201[148].  Villehardouin records that part of the army travelled to Antioch “al prince Buimont...princes d’Antioche et cuens de Triple” but that “Vilains de Nuilli...et Giles de Trazeignies et maint altre” were killed[149]m (after 1196) as her second husband, ADA, widow of CLAREMBAUD Seigneur de Noyers, daughter of --- (-after 1196).  "…Ade uxor mee et filiarum mearum Adeline…et Sibylle" consented to the donation by "Clarenbaudus dominus de Noeriis" to the Priory of Jully-les-Nonnains by charter dated 1186[150]Clarembaudus de Noers” donated “prata...de Montet” to Pontigny “mecum...uxor mea Ada et liberi mei et pater meus...et anima Milonis fratris mei”, with the consent of “uxore mea Ada et duabus filiabus meis Odelina et Sibilla, quia tunc alios liberos ad etatem loquendi non habemam”, by charter dated [25 Mar 1186/24 Mar 1187][151]"Clarembaudus de Noiers" donated property to the Knights Hospitallers at Arbonne, naming "germano H….Autissiodorensis episcopo, sue…matri domine Adeline et sue…uxori domine Ade et suo…filio Miloni, sua quoque filia…Adeline", by charter dated 30 Oct 1190 at the siege of Acre[152].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 1225 under which “Johannes comes Carnotensis, Montis-Mirelli et Oysiaci dominus” noted that “Elisabeth filia domini Villiani de Nuilliaco, soror Milonis domini Noerii...consanguinea mea” exchanged her rights “in terra de Biia...de capite matris sue que de feodo meo est” with “dicto fratri suo Miloni domino Noerii consanguinis meo” for his rights “in villa de Cosain...in Castelaria de Avalone...[153].  This charter also suggests that the family relationship between Jean [II] de Montmirail Comte de Chartres (see the document PARIS REGION NOBILITY) and both Elisabeth and her half-brother Milon [VII] must have been through their mother.  There are too many possibilities covered by the imprecise term “consanguineus” to speculate sensibly on the exact relationship.  Vilain & his wife had one child: 

a)         ISABELLE de Nully (-after 1225).  “Johannes comes Carnotensis, Montis-Mirelli et Oysiaci dominus” noted that “Elisabeth filia domini Villiani de Nuilliaco, soror Milonis domini Noerii...consanguinea mea” exchanged her rights “in terra de Biia...de capite matris sue que de feodo meo est” with “dicto fratri suo Miloni domino Noerii consanguinis meo” for his rights “in villa de Cosain...in Castelaria de Avalone...”, by charter dated 1225[154]

2.         GUILLAUME de Nully (-after [1202/04]).  Gauthier de Nully donated property to Boulancourt, naming his two sons Vilain and Guillaume, in a charter dated 1174[155].  “Guillermus miles de Nuleio, Achardus de Fronvilla” witnessed the charter dated 1192 under which “Gaufridus Joniville dominus” confirmed the renunciation by his father of “gistum de Landevilla” in favour of the church of Saint-Urbain[156].  Villehardouin names “...Vilains de Nuilli...Guillaumes de Nuilli...” among those who left from Champagne on crusade in 1201[157].  Villehardouin records that part of the army travelled to Antioch “al prince Buimont...princes d’Antioche et cuens de Triple” but that “Renarz de Danpierre et Johans de Vilers et Guillaumes de Nuillis qui colpes n’i avoit [who was blameless]” were captured by the Turks[158]

a)         RAINARDThe Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon names "miles Rodulfus…de Barrensi castro…et filius ipsius Rainardus"[164]same person as…?  RAINARD (-after [997]).  Comte [de Bar-sur-Seine].  "Milo comes…Raynardus comes…" witnessed the charter dated to [992] under which “Umbertus…et mee conjugis…Giberge” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta…in comitatu Tornodorense" to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre[165]Ernest Petit suggests this co-identity, pointing out that Coussegré was situated in the domaine of Chaource, which in part was a dependency of the county of Bar-sur-Seine[166]There appears to be no other evidence of the existence of Rainard, son of Raoul, and Bouchard points out that the dating of the charter in question is uncertain[167].  She suggests that it is more likely that "Rainardus comes" was either Rainard Comte de Sens or Rainard Comte de Tonnerre, the son of Ermengardis.  However, the latter suggestion appears incorrect as "Miles comes", who would have been the father of Rainard Comte de Tonnerre, is also named in the [992] charter.  "…Raynardi comitis…Milonis comitis…" subscribed a charter dated to [997] which deals with the property at Coussegré[168]m ---.  The name of Rainard’s wife is not known.  Rainard & his wife had [one possible child]: 

i)          [ERMENGARDE (-after 1018)Ernest Petit suggests that Ermengarde, wife of Milon [III] Comte de Tonnerre, was the daughter of Rainard and heiress of Bar-sur-Seine[169].  A family connection is indicated by the charter dated to [992/1005] under which Milo comes Tornodorensis castri” donated property "in villa…Curtis-Secreta" to the monastery of Saint-Michel, with the consent of “coniugis mee Ermengarde et carissimorum filiorum meorum Achardi, Rainardi et Alberici[170], the property being the same as the subject of the [992] charter witnessed by "…Raynardus comes…"[171]m MILON [IV] Comte de Tonnerre, son of --- ([950/65]-1002 or after).] 

 

 

 

B.      COMTE de BAR-sur-SEINE (TONNERRE)

 

 

The family of the Comtes de Tonnerre presumably acquired the county of Bar-sur-Seine as a result of the marriage of Ermengarde (see above) and Milon [IV] Comte de Tonnerre, who was related to Hugues Rainard who is shown below although the precise relationship has not been ascertained.  .  

 

 

1.         HUGUES RAINARD de Tonnerre, son of MILO [V] Comte de Tonnerre & his wife Aceka --- (-2/3 Apr 1084)Milo comes castri Tornodori” donated property to Saint-Michel de Tonnerre, by charter dated 29 Sep 1046, which specifies that after the death of “supradicti Milonis regnante filio eius Hugone…”, signed by “Hugonis qui et Raynardi…comitis…[172]He succeeded his father as Comte de Tonnerre et Comte de Bar-sur-Seine 1046.  Archdeacon at Langres.  Bishop of Langres 1065.

MILON de Brienne, son of GAUTHIER [I] Comte de Brienne et de Bar-sur-Seine & his wife Eustachie Ctss de Bar-sur-Seine [Tonnerre] (-[1126]).  His parentage is confirmed by his undated charter under which "Milo…comes Barris super Sequanam" donated property to the abbey of Molesme with the consent of "Matildis uxor eius, Airardus comes frater eius"[173]Comte de Bar-sur-Seine.  "Airardus comes Brinensis filius Walterii comitis" donated property to the abbey of Molesme with the consent of "matre sua Eustachia comitissa et uxore sua [blank], necnon et Milone fratre suo comite de Barro" by charter dated to [1085/1111][174].  A note of a donation by "Hugo comes Trecorum" to "Monasterium Arremari" is included in a charter dated 1113, signed by "Milo comes Barri, Ayrardus frater eius comes Brenie"[175].  “Milo...comes Barri super Sequanam” donated property “apud villam...Capella...et apud...villam...Elmertium” to Molesmes, with the consent of “Matildis uxor eius, Airardus comes frater eius, Mantia amborum soror”, by charter dated to 1115, witnessed by “Olricus vicecomes, Gaufredus nepos eius...[176].  "Milo comes Barri" donated "castri…Juliaci" to Molesme abbey for a convent, later the priory of Jully-les-Nonnains, by charter dated [1115][177].  "Airardus Breonensis comes…et comitem Barrensem Milonem fratrem suum" are named in a charter dated to [1125 or before], subscribed by "Milonis comitis, Widonis filii eius"[178]

Comte Milon & his wife had two children: 

1.         GUY de Brienne (-13 Feb ----).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1125 or before] in which "Airardus Breonensis comes…et comitem Barrensem Milonem fratrem suum" are named, subscribed by "Milonis comitis, Widonis filii eius"[180]Comte de Bar-sur-Seine.  "Guido comes Barrensis et uxor eius Hysabel et filii eorum Milo, Guillelmus et Guido" approved an exchange of property between "Salonem" and Pontigny by charter dated 1139[181].  The necrology of the abbey of Mores records the death "Pridie Id Feb" of "Guido comes Barrensis"[182]m PETRONILLE-ELISABETH de Chacenay, daughter of ANSERIC [II] de Chacenay & his wife Humbeline [de Troyes] (-[28 Aug] ----).  "Guido comes Barrensis et uxor eius Hysabel et filii eorum Milo, Guillelmus et Guido" approved an exchange of property between "Salonem" and Pontigny by charter dated 1139[183].  The foundation charter of the abbey of Mores, undated but dated to 1152, records the donations of "Petronilla, Barri comitissa…pro anima viri sui Widonis et filiorum suorum Milonis et Willelmi"[184].  There is doubt about her name as the cartulary of Troyes Saint-Pierre records a charter dated [1148/53] which recalls a donation by "Helisabeth mater Milonis comitis Barensis et ipsius uxor Agnes"[185].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  The necrology of Notre-Dame aux Nonnains records the death "28 Aug" of "Petronilla, monacha comitissa Barri"[186], although this entry could refer to her granddaughter.  Comte Guy & his wife had six children: 

a)         MILON de Brienne (-1 Oct 1151).  "Guido comes Barrensis et uxor eius Hysabel et filii eorum Milo, Guillelmus et Guido" approved an exchange of property between "Salonem" and Pontigny by charter dated 1139[187].  The foundation charter of the abbey of Mores, undated but dated to 1152, records the donations of "Guido comes Barri super Secanam, filiis suis Milone et Willielmo"[188]Comte de Bar-sur-Seine.  The cartulary of Troyes Saint-Pierre records a charter dated [1148/53] which recalls a donation by "Helisabeth mater Milonis comitis Barensis et ipsius uxor Agnes"[189]m (before 1150) as her first husband, AGNES de Baudémont dame de Braine, daughter and heiress of GUY de Baudémont Seigneur de Braine & his wife Alix Dame de Braine (1130-24 Jul 1204, bur Braine, église abbatiale de Saint-Ived).  The foundation charter of the abbey of Mores, undated but dated to 1152, records the donations of "Agnes, Barri comitissa…pro anima viri sui comitis Milonis"[190].  The cartulary of Troyes Saint-Pierre records a charter dated to [1148/53] which recalls a donation by "Helisabeth mater Milonis comitis Barensis et ipsius uxor Agnes"[191].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  "Agnes Branæ domina" donated property to Saint-Yved de Braine, for the welfare of the souls of "suæ…Milonis mariti sui", by charter dated 1150[192].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Agnes nobilis de Barro super Sequanam" as second wife of "comitem de Brana Robertum domnum", specifying that she was "mater comitisse Petronille"[193].  She married secondly (1152) as his second wife, Robert de France Seigneur de Dreux"R comes dominus Droc et Bran" donated property to Notre-Dame de la Trappe with the consent of "Agnetis uxoris eius [R patris meis]…comitisse matris mee…et Yolande comitisse uxore mee et liberorum meorum " by charter dated Jul 1212[194], although the document is incorrectly dated assuming that the death date of Agnes is correct as shown above.  Comte Milon & his wife had [two] children: 

i)          PETRONILLE de Brienne (-[16 Mar or 28 Aug] ----).  Her parentage is confirmed by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names "Agnes nobilis de Barro super Sequanam", second wife of "comitem de Brana Robertum domnum", as "mater comitisse Petronille"[195], read together with the charter dated [1148/53] which recalls a donation by "Helisabeth mater Milonis comitis Barensis et ipsius uxor Agnes"[196].  She succeeded her father as Ctss de Bar-sur-Seine.  "Hugo de Puteolo comes Barri super Sequanam…Petronilla conjuge sua" made donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1168, in the presence of "comitis Henrici"[197].  The necrology of Notre-Dame aux Nonnains records the death "28 Aug" of "Petronilla, monacha comitissa Barri"[198], although this entry could refer to her grandmother.  The necrology of Molesme records the death "IV Kal Sep" of "Petronilla comitissa Barri"[199].  The necrology of Saint-Yved de Braine records the death "XVII Kal Apr" of "Petronillæ comitissæ Barri, filiæ comitissæ Branæ"[200]m HUGUES [IV] de Puiset Vicomte de Chartres, son of ERARD [IV] du Puiset Vicomte de Chartres & his wife Heloise de Roucy (-Ardech, England Nov 1189, bur Durham).  "Hugo de Puteolo comes Barri super Sequanam…Petronilla conjuge sua" made donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1168, in the presence of "comitis Henrici"[201]

ii)         [MARIE (-18 Oct ----).  The necrology of Saint-Yved de Braine records the death "XV Kal Nov" of "Mariæ filiæ comitissæ Branæ"[202].  No record has been found that Agnes de Baudément Dame de Braine had a daughter named Marie by her second husband Robert de Dreux.  It is therefore possible that this entry refers to a second, otherwise unrecorded, daughter by her first marriage. 

b)         GUILLAUME de Brienne .  "Guido comes Barrensis et uxor eius Hysabel et filii eorum Milo, Guillelmus et Guido" approved an exchange of property between "Salonem" and Pontigny by charter dated 1139[203].  The foundation charter of the abbey of Mores, undated but dated to 1152, records the donations of "Guido comes Barri super Secanam, filiis suis Milone et Willielmo"[204]

A.      SEIGNEURS de CHACENAY

 

 

The village and castle of Chacenay is situated in the south-east of the county of Champagne, on the borders with the duchy of Burgundy in the present-day canton of Essoyes, 16 kilometres south-east of Bar-sur-Seine.  The bishops of Langres were suzerains of Chacenay in the early 12th century: Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Chacennaium...”, by bull dated [1105][275].  A charter dated 23 Aug 1286, which confirms the division of the lands of Chacenay between "les quatre frères Jehan, Millet, Erars et Guillaume", confirms that Chacenay was the fief partly of the comte de Champagne and partly of the bishop of Langres[276]

 

 

1.         ANSERICSeigneur de Chacenay.  "Anserici domini de Cancenniaco" subscribed the charter dated 1083 under which Renard-Hugues Bishop of Langres confirmed the foundation of the abbey of Molesme[277].  Donations by "Anseric pater Milonis de Cacennaco" to the abbey of Molesme are recorded in a charter dated to [1076/1104][278]m ---.  The name of Anseric's wife is not known.  A charter dated to [1075], recording the foundation of the abbey of Molesme, refers to donations including by "Hugo de Curtiruno et uxor eius Gersennis cum sorore sua Chacennacensi et liberis eius"[279].  It is possible therefore that she was --- de Courteron, daughter of ---, although the chronology could indicate that the person in question was the mother of Anseric de Chacenay.  Anseric & his wife had one child: 

a)         MILON (-[1 Apr 1104/1107]).  "Milo autem filius ipsius Ansirici…cum uxore sua Adelaide et filio Hugone" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated to [1076/1104][280]Seigneur de Chacenay.  "Milon de Chacenay" witnessed the charter dated 1 Apr 1104 under which Hugues Comte de Champagne donated revenue to Molesme[281]m ADELAIDE, daughter of ---.  1102/1107.  "Milo de Cacenniaco et Adelaidis uxor eius et filius eorum Hugo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 26 Dec, dated to [1084/1107][282].  Milon & his wife had two children: 

i)          HUGUES de Chacenay ).  "Milo de Cacenniaco et Adelaidis uxor eius et filius eorum Hugo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 26 Dec, dated to [1084/1107][283]same person as…?  HUGUES (-[1119/20]).  Hugues Seigneur de Montréal is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln as the same person as the son of Milon Seigneur de Chacenay[284].  The primary source which confirms this co-identity has not been identified, although the use of the name Anséric in both families suggests a close connection.   Seigneur de Montréal

-         SEIGNEURS de MONTREAL

ii)         ANSERIC [II] de Chacenay (-1137).  "…Ansericus, Milonis filius de Cacynniacho…" witnessed the charter dated 1107 under which "Hugo Trecassinus comes" donated property to Montiéramey[285]Seigneur de Chacenay.  "Ansericus de Cacynniacho…" witnessed the charter dated 1111 under which "Hugo Trecassinus comes" donated property to Montiéramey[286].  "Ansericus de Cacennaco…uxoris Hubeline…filio meo Jacobo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 22 Feb 1119[287].  "Ansericus de Chacethniaco" donated property to Clairvaux, with the consent of "uxore sua Humbelina", by charter dated to 1135 or before[288]m HUMBELINE, daughter of --- (-after 1137).  "Ansericus de Cacennaco…uxoris Hubeline…filio meo Jacobo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 22 Feb 1119[289].  It is likely that Humbeline was closely related to Bernard Abbot of Clairvaux, maybe his sister, as he is mentioned in three charters connected with her.  "Hubelina uxor Anseric de Caccennaco" donated property to the priory of Jully-les-Nonnains by charter dated 1133 which names "Godefrido et Girardo fratre abbatis Clarevallis"[290].  "Ansericus de Chacethniaco" donated property to Clairvaux, with the consent of "uxore sua Humbelina", by charter dated to 1135 or before[291].  "Hubelina domena de Chacenay uxor Anserici defuncto" made donations to "fratribus de Ripatorio" with the consent of "Jacobo filio eius" by charter dated 1137, subscribed by "Bernardus abbas Clerævallis, Odo filius Josleni"[292].  [It is possible that Humbeline married secondly Gauthier [II] Comte de Brienne.  If that is correct, she was Humbeline de Baudémont, daughter of André de Baudémont Seneschal de Champagne & his wife Agnes ---.  This possible second marriage is suggested by one interpretation of a charter dated 1174 which records a dispute involving "comitem de Brenna Herardum" which was witnessed by her grandson “Erardus nepos eius de Chacenaio[293].  Another interesting observation is that the sister of Humbeline de Baudémont married Hugues Seigneur de Montréal, shown above as the possible brother of Anséric [II], duplicate brothers/sisters marriages being relatively frequent at the time.  However, there are two problems with this possible interpretation of the 1174 document.  Firstly, a chronological difficulty is suggested by the birth of Humbeline’s son by her supposed first marriage before 1119, Anseric’s death in 1137, and the supposed birth of several children by her second marriage before 1147.  Secondly, the more natural interpretation of the 1174 document is that Erard de Chacenay was nepos of Erard de Brienne because he was the son of the latter’s sister.  As discussed in more detail in the chapter dealing with the Comtes de Brienne, this latter interpretation also best explains another charter dated 1146 as well as the introduction of the name Erard into the family of the seigneurs de Chacenay.  If that second interpretation is correct, there were two different individuals named Humbeline, one married to Anseric de Chacenay and the other to Gauthier de Brienne.]  Anseric [II] & his wife had four children: 

(a)       JACQUES de Chacenay (-15 Jun [1152/58]).  "Ansericus de Cacennaco…uxoris Hubeline…filio meo Jacobo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 22 Feb 1119[294]Seigneur de Chacenay

-         see below

(b)       ANSERIC [III] .  "Anserico frater eius [Jacobi de Chacenaio]" is named in the charter dated 1146 which confirms donations by "Hubelina mater Jacobi de Chacenaio" to Montier-la-Celle[295].  Seigneur de Feins.  He joined the crusade in 1147[296]

(c)       THOMAS (-after [1177]).  "Thomas monachus Clarevallis patruus eius" witnessed the charter dated 1167 under which Erard de Chacenay confirmed donations to the abbey of Larrivour[297].  Prior at Molesme 1160/1161.  Prior at Clairvaux 1161.  Abbot of Molesmes 1172, resigned [1177]. 

(d)       PETRONILLE-ELISABETH de Chacenay (-1165 or after).  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  1139/1165.  The foundation charter of the abbey of Mores, undated but dated to 1152, records the donations of "Petronilla, Barri comitissa…pro anima viri sui Widonis et filiorum suorum Milonis et Willelmlmi"[298].  There is doubt about her name as the cartulary of Troyes Saint-Pierre records a charter dated [1148/53] which recalls a donation by "Helisabeth mater Milonis comitis Barensis et ipsius uxor Agnes"[299]m GUY de Brienne Comte de Bar-sur-Seine, son of MILON de Brienne Comte de Bar-sur-Seine & his wife Mathilde de Noyers (-13 Feb ----, 1145 or after). 

 

 

JACQUES de Chacenay, son of ANSERIC [II] Seigneur de Chacenay & his wife Humbeline [de Troyes] (-15 Jun [1152/58]).  "Ansericus de Cacennaco…uxoris Hubeline…filio meo Jacobo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 22 Feb 1119[300]Seigneur de Chacenay.  "Hubelina domena de Chacenay uxor Anserici defuncto" made donations to "fratribus de Ripatorio" with the consent of "Jacobo filio eius" by charter dated 1137, subscribed by "Bernardus abbas Clerævallis, Odo filius Josleni"[301].  "Jacobus dominus de Cachennai" with the consent of "Agnetis uxoris mee" made donations to Basse-Fontaine on the suggestion of "Galteri Brenensium comitis et matris, uxoris eius, domine Agnetis de Baldimento et domine mee A Brenensium comitisse" by charter dated 1146[302].  The foundation charter of the abbey of Mores, undated but dated to 1152, records the donations of "Ansericus de Chacennaico…uxore sua Hubelina et filio suo Jacobo" and "Jacobus de Chacennaio…uxore sua Agnete"[303]

m (before 1146) [as her first husband,] AGNES [de Brienne, daughter of GAUTHIER [II] Comte de Brienne] & his [first/second] wife [---/Humbeline de Baudément] ([1122/25]-after 1191).  "Jacobus dominus de Cachennai", with the consent of "Agnetis uxoris mee", made donations to Basse-Fontaine on the suggestion of "Galteri Brenensium comitis et matris, uxoris eius, domine Agnetis de Baldimento et domine mee A Brenensium comitisse" by charter dated 1146[304].  The parentage of the wife of Jacques Seigneur de Chacenay is suggested by this document dated 1146.  It is also indicated by the charter dated 1174 under which the bishop of Troyes confirmed his judgment relating to "villa de Prait" which names her supposed brother "comitum de Brena Herardum" and is witnessed by "Andreas frater comitis, Erardus nepos eius de Chacenaio"[305].  One of the interpretations of this document is that "Erardus nepos eius [=of Erard [II] Comte de Brienne] de Chacenaio" was the nephew of Comte Erard because he was the son of his sister.  Another possible interpretation of the 1174 document, as explained in more detail in the chapter dealing with the comtes de Brienne, is that Erard de Chacenay was "nepos" of Erard [II] Comte de Brienne because of a relationship through the latter’s mother, Humbeline de Baudément, wife of Gauthier [II] Comte de Brienne.  In that case, Agnes must have been born from an otherwise unrecorded first marriage of her father.  However, this alternative interpretation does not satisfactorily explain the charter dated 1146 nor the entry of the name "Erard" into the Chacenay family after Agnes’s marriage, which certainly suggests that Agnes belonged to the family of the comtes de Brienne.  If Agnes’s parentage is correctly shown in the present document, she must have been one of her parents’ oldest children.  "Agnes domina de Chacennaio…filiis suis Thoma et Ayrardo" made donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1158, confirmed by "Henricus…Trecensis episcopus"[306].  She maybe married secondly Jean ---.  Her second marriage is suggested by the charter dated to [1179/83] under which "Agnes domine de Cachenanaio", with the consent of her unnamed children, made donations to Basse-Fontaine for the soul of "domini mei Jacobi…filius meus Erardus…quando perrexit Jerosolimam", witnessed by "Johannes dominus Cachanaii…"[307].  It is clear that "Jean seigneur de Chacenay" could not have been one of Agnes’s children by her first marriage.  One possible explanation of the charter is therefore that he was Agnes’s second husband, enjoying the title by right of his wife.  The testament of "Agnes…domina Cacenaii", dated to [1191] and made "coram…filiarum mearum M[argareta] domina Chanlotis et H. domina de Durnai", bequeathed land "apud Lusigniacum et apud Montem Susanum", previously held by "Jacobus filius domini Erardi Cacensi", to "filie mee M[argarete] domine Chanlotis", and property "apud Taneileres" to "filie domini H[ugonis] Vendopere" by charter dated to [1191][308]

Jacques & his wife had [five] children: 

1.         THOMAS de Chacenay (-1179, before 11 Dec).  "Agnes domina de Chacennaio…filiis suis Thoma et Ayrardo" made donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1158, confirmed by "Henricus…Trecensis episcopus"[309]Seigneur de Chacenay.  "Thomas de Cachenato filius Jacobi jam miles" confirmed donations to the abbey of Larrivour, with the consent of "Aherardus filius Jacobi de Cachenato", by charter dated 1158[310].  "Thomas de Chacenniaco" donated property to Clairvaux, with the consent of "Airardus frater eius", by charter dated 1171[311].  "Dominus Thomas de Chacenai…" witnessed the charter dated 1179 which records the donation to Clairvaux made by "Paganus de Univilla…"[312].  [m ---.  The name of Thomas’s wife is not known.  Thomas & his wife had [one child]: 

a)         [JACQUES (-after 1189).  "Arardus de Chacennaio" confirmed donations to Clairvaux made by "avus meus Ansericus, laudante uxore sua Humbelina", with the consent of "uxore mea Mathilde et nepote meo Jacobo", by charter dated 11 Dec 1179[313].  The document does not specify the parentage of the witness Jacques, but the most likely explanation for the words "nepote meo" is that he was the minor son of Erard’s older brother.  "Airardus dominus Chacenniaci" donated property to Clairvaux by charter dated 1189 witnessed by "Jacobus nepos meus…"[314].] 

2.         ERARD [I] de Chacenay (-Acre 1191, before 12 Jul).  "Agnes domina de Chacennaio…filiis suis Thoma et Ayrardo" made donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1158, confirmed by "Henricus…Trecensis episcopus"[315].  "Thomas de Cachenato filius Jacobi jam miles" confirmed donations to the abbey of Larrivour, with the consent of "Aherardus filius Jacobi de Cachenato", by charter dated 1158[316].  "Thomas de Chacenniaco" donated property to Clairvaux, with the consent of "Airardus frater eius", by charter dated 1171[317]Seigneur de Chacenay.  "Arardus de Chacennaio" confirmed donations to Clairvaux made by "avus meus Ansericus, laudante uxore sua Humbelina", with the consent of "uxore mea Mathilde et nepote meo Jacobo", by charter dated 11 Dec 1179[318].  "Airardus dominus Cacenniaci uxore mee Felicitate laudante" donated property to Basse-Fontaine by charter dated 1183, which refers to a donation of "vineam Rufe de Couvegnon" made by "matris mee" (who is unnamed in the document but "Agnes…domina de Chachennaio" is recorded making the same donation in the following charter)[319].  "Airardus dominus Chacenniaci" donated property to Clairvaux by charter dated 1189 witnessed by "Jacobus nepos meus…"[320].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois Fontaines names "Erardus de Cacenaio" among those who died in 1191 at the siege of Acre[321]m firstly MATHILDE, daughter of --- (-[11 Dec 1179/1183]).  "Arardus de Chacennaio" confirmed donations to Clairvaux made by "avus meus Ansericus, laudante uxore sua Humbelina", with the consent of "uxore mea Mathilde et nepote meo Jacobo", by charter dated 11 Dec 1179[322].  "Erardus dominus Chacennaii…Mathilde uxore sua" confirmed donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1182[323].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, "Mathilde or Félicité, daughter of Hervé [III] de Donzy & his second wife Clémence de Bourgogne" was the wife of Erard [I] de Chacenay[324].  The primary source which confirms this parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  As explained in the document BURGUNDY DUCHY NOBILITY, if this parentage of Erard’s wife is correct, it is chronologically more likely that Clémence, her mother, was the first wife of Geoffroy [III] de Donzy.  If this is correct, she was MATHILDE [Félicité] de Donzy, daughter of [GEOFFROY [III] Seigneur de Donzy & his first wife Clémence de Bourgogne [Capet].  m secondly FELICITE, daughter of --- (-after 1183).  "Airardus dominus Cacenniaci uxore mee Felicitate laudante" donated property to Basse-Fontaine by charter dated 1183, which refers to a donation of "vineam Rufe de Couvegnon" made by "matris mee" (who is unnamed in the document but "Agnes…domina de Chachennaio" is recorded making the same donation in the following charter)[325].  As note above, Europäische Stammtafeln conflates the two wives of Erard [I] de Chacenay into "Mathilde or Félicité, daughter of Hervé [III] de Donzy & his second wife Clémence de Bourgogne"[326].  It is not known whether this is correct, but until more information in other primary sources comes to light it is considered preferable to show Erard as having married two different wives.  Erard [I] & his first wife had three children: 

a)         JACQUES (-[1191/92]).  His parentage is confirmed by the testament of "Agnes…domina Cacenaii", dated to [1191], under which she bequeathed land "apud Lusigniacum et apud Montem Susanum", previously held by "Jacobus filius domini Erardi Cacensi", to "filie mee M[argarete] domine Chanlotis"[327].  This document indicates that Jacques must have briefly survived his father, and that he must have been born from his father’s first marriage assuming that he was old enough to hold property in his own name at the date of his grandmother’s testament. 

b)         ERARD [II] de Chacenay (-16 Jun 1236, bur Clairvaux)Seigneur de Chacenay.  "Erardus dominus de Chacennei filius domini Erardi" confirmed donations to Mores made by "antecessores mei de Chaceneo…Ansericus et Jacobus filius eius et Erardus pater meus", with the consent of "Emeliana uxor mea", by charter dated 1205[328]

C.      SEIGNEURS de CHÂTILLON

 

 

Châtillon, now Châtillon-sur-Seine, is located about 40 kilometres due west of Langres, in the present-day French département of Côte-d’Or, arrondissement Montbard, canton Châtillon-sur-Seine.  In early medieval times, the town was located in the pagus Latiscensis, in the area which later developed into the county of Bar-sur-Seine.  The nickname “Rufus”, first applied to Gosbert [I] de Châtillon in the mid-11th century presumably because of his red hair or complexion, was also used by some later members of this family.  It is unclear whether this was because they shared the same inherited hair or complexion colouring or whether the name had evolved into a family tradition.  The bishops of Langres were suzerains of Châtillon in the early 12th century: Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Castellionense...”, by bull dated [1105][452]

 

 

1.         GOSBERT [I] “Rufus” de Châtillon"Widonem de Grancyacho" donated his rights in "Tezam…apud Aquodium" [Teza d’Ahuy] to Saint-Etienne de Dijon, in the presence of "Gosbertus Rufus de Castelione et Scimaudus de Tylocastro", by undated charter, dated to the mid-11th century[453]

a)         GOSBERT [III] de Châtillon .  "Domnus Stephanus de Marischo", with the consent of "uxoris suæ", and "domnus Raynerius Castellionensis socer eius", with the consent of "Gosberti filii sui et uxoris suæ", donated property "juxta Pusaticum, ubi dicitur ad fontem sancti Martini" to Dijon Saint-Etienne by undated charter dated to the early 12th century[457].  "Stephanus de Maresc cum uxore mea et fratre mea Aldone, atque socer meus Raynerius cum filio suo Gosberto" agreed a division of property at Ormancey with the monks of Dijon Saint-Etienne by undated charter[458]

ii)         JEAN (-[before 1153]).  A charter dated 1164 records various donations to Clairvaux, including donations by "Jobertus de Firmitate", with the consent of "uxore sua Gertrude", witnessed by "…Erlebaldus et Johannes filii vicecomitis de Firmitate, Herbertus vicecomes de Barro"[476].  He and his brother presumably predeceased their father as the vicomté de Dijon was inherited by the son of Erlebaud and Jean’s presumed first cousin Sibylle. 

b)         [son/daughter .  Assuming that “neptis” was used in its strict sense of niece in the 1164 charter quoted below, one of the parents of the wife of Eudes [I] “le Champenois” was the sibling of Gosbert [III] de la Ferté Vicomte de Dijon.  If this connection was through Sibylle’s mother, she would presumably have been the oldest sister of Gosbert [III] in view of the transmission of the vicomté de Dijon to her descendants.  If that is correct, it appears unlikely that this person was Mathilde de la Ferté as Sibylle was not named with Mathilde’s other two daughters in the charter dated to before 1145 which is quoted below.  The identity of Sibylle’s father has not been ascertained.  m ---.  One child:]

Two brothers.  Their parents have not been identified but the names “Rufus” and Gosbert indicate a close relationship with the Châtillon/La Ferté family shown above.  No record has been found of their association with the vicomté de Dijon, which suggests that they were not sons of Gosbert [II] “Rufus”.

The location of Durnay is open to debate.  identifies it as “Durney, canton de Vendeuvre-sur-Barse; anc. fief disparu au XVIIIe siècle[486].  Evergates comments that Faget de Casteljau identified it as Durnes in the Franche-Comté[487].  The connection between the Durnay family and Vendeuvre, shown below, suggests that the former explanation is more likely. 

 

 

1.         --- de Durnay Seigneur de Durnaym HU--- [de Chacenay], daughter of [JACQUES Seigneur de Chacenay] & his wife Agnes [de Brienne] (-[1191/93]).  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the testament of her mother "Agnes…domina Cacenaii", dated to [1191] and made "coram…filiarum mearum M[argareta] domina Chanlotis et H. domina de Durnai", under which the testator bequeathed land "apud Lusigniacum et apud Montem Susanum", previously held by "Jacobus filius domini Erardi Cacensi", to "filie mee M[argarete] domine Chanlotis", and property "apud Taneileres" to "filie domini H[ugonis] Vendopere" by charter dated to [1191][488].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.  The chronology suggests the possibility that Huguette was born from her mother’s supposed second marriage.  "Theobaldus de Barro" noted the donation to Basse-Fontaine of "domum de Coveignon…et vineam Ruffe" made by "Agnes…quondam domina Chacenaii, mater uxoris mee Margarete et Hu--- de Durnaio", with the consent of "uxor mea", by undated charter which must presumably be dated to after [1191][489].  [One child]:

2.         [--- de Vendeuvre .  Assuming that “nepos”, in the charter dated 1193 quoted below, can be interpreted in its strict sense of nephew, the father of Hugues de Vendeuvre was the brother of Eudes [II] de Vendeuvre.]  m as her first husband, ERMESENDE de Sens, daughter of SALON [I] Vicomte de Sens & his wife Elisabeth --- (-19 Feb, after [1204/05]).  Vicomtesse de Sens.  She married secondly (before 1180) Galeran ---.  Guillaume Archbishop of Reims states, in a charter dated 1180, that "Garinus vicecomes" died without issue and that "Galerannus qui defuncti Garini sororem in uxorem duxit" donated property to the chapter of Sens[521].  "Ermesendis vicecomitissa Senonensis" renounced rights over the property of the priory of Cannes at Blennes with the consent of "Buchardus filius meus" by charter dated 1 Jan/25 Apr 1204 or 1 Jan/10 Apr 1205[522].  The necrology of Notre-Dame aux Nonnains records the death "19 Feb" of "vicecomitissa Senonensis", one manuscript naming her "Hermensandis comitissa"[523]Four children: 

a)         HUGUES de Vendeuvre (-after 1198)"Odo dominus Vendopere" noted that "Hugo nepos meus dominus Vendopere" had claimed property "in Communia...inter Villiacum et Vendoperam" from Montiéramey, but now confirmed the donated property, by charter dated 1193[524].  "Maubertus decanus Vendopere" noted that "Hugo dominus Vendopere" had claimed property "in Communia...inter Villiacum et Vendoperam" from Montiéramey, but now confirmed the donated property for the soul of “Helviz uxoris sue defuncte”, by charter dated 1194[525].  "Hilduinus Lingonensis decanus" noted that "Hugo de Vendopera frater meus" had donated one-sixth of harvest "de Billefarre" to Montiéramey by charter dated 1197[526].  "Dominus Odo de Vendopera" donated one sixth "in decima de Longoprato" to Mores, with the consent of “Beatrix uxor eiusdem Odonis et Oda filia ipsorum”, and “dominus Hugo de Vendopera” donated another sixth with the consent of “filia eius Ermensendis”, by charter dated 1198[527]m HELOISE, daughter of --- (-[before 1191]).  "Maubertus decanus Vendopere" noted that "Hugo dominus Vendopere" had claimed property "in Communia...inter Villiacum et Vendoperam" from Montiéramey, but now confirmed the donated property for the soul of “Helviz uxoris sue defuncte”, by charter dated 1194[528].  Her parentage is indicated by the testament of "Agnes…domina Cacenaii", dated to [1191], bequeathed property "apud Taneileres" to "filie domini H[ugonis] Vendopere"[529].  This bequest would best be explained if Heloise was the testator’s deceased daughter.  If that is correct, she was Heloise [de Chacenay], daughter of [Jacques Seigneur de Chacenay] & his wife Agnes [de Brienne], although the chronology suggests that it is not impossible that Heloise was born from her mother’s supposed second marriage.  Hugues & his wife had one child: 

i)          ERMESENDE de Vendeuvre (-after 1224).  The testament of "Agnes…domina Cacenaii", dated to [1191], bequeathed property "apud Taneileres" to "filie domini H[ugonis] Vendopere"[530].  "Dominus Odo de Vendopera" donated one sixth "in decima de Longoprato" to Mores, with the consent of “Beatrix uxor eiusdem Odonis et Oda filia ipsorum”, and “dominus Hugo de Vendopera” donated another sixth with the consent of “filia eius Ermensendis”, by charter dated 1198[531].  "Simon dominus Claromontis et Ermensans uxor eius" settled a dispute with Mores "super Quercu et Villefuere...pasturas in...Vendopere" to Mores, with the consent of “filiorum suorum Simonis et Odonis”, by charter dated 1200[532].  “Simon de Claromonte” acknowledged Blanche comtesse de Champagne as his suzerain for (among other properties) “apud Vendoperam quod est ex parte uxoris meæ” by charter dated Apr 1209[533].  "Simon dominus de Claromonte" confirmed that "Hermansans uxor mea" had donated harvest from “terragia mea de Vendopera” to Mores, with the consent of “filii mei Simon et Odo”, by charter dated 1224[534]m (before [1198]) as his first wife, SIMON [IV] Seigneur de Clefmont, son of SIMON [III] Seigneur de Clefmont & his second wife Beatrix de Champlittle (-Oct 1238).

c)         [--- de Vendeuvre (-before Nov 1202).  Assuming that “neptis”, in the charter dated Nov 1202 quoted below, can be interpreted in its strict sense of niece, one of Marguerite’s parents was the donor’s sibling.]  m ---.  One child: 

i)          MARGUERITE (-after Apr 1234, maybe after 1246).  "Hulduinus...Lingonensis episcopus" noted that "Gaufridus domicellus filius defuncti Gaufredi de Vendopera" had donated property "in Communia Villiaci" to Montiéramey, with the support of “Hauvidis soror eiusdem Gaufredi et neptis eius Margareta, dominus Taillefers et uxor eius Clementia cognomine Rufa”, by charter dated Nov 1202[547].  Her marriage is indicated by the charter dated Mar 1206 (O.S.) under which [her father-in-law] "Jacobus de Durniaco" noted that "Girardus filius meus...de assensu Margarite uxoris sue" confirmed the donation to Montiéramey made by “Gaufredus filius defuncti Gaufredi de Vendopera[548].  The connection with Vendeuvre is confirmed by the following charter: "Girardus dominus Durnaii" donated revenue from "terciis nostri de Vendopera" to the Teutonic Knights, with the consent of “uxoris mee Margarete”, by charter dated Apr 1234[549].  ["Gerardi domini Durnaii et Margaretæ uxoris eius" donated property to Molesme by charter dated 1246, naming “Hugonis dominus Brecarum et Odæ uxoris eius, Odonis eorum filii et Agnetis uxoris eius[550].  This charter seems late to refer to Gérard de Durnay who married in [1202/07] and his wife.]  m ([Nov 1202/Mar 1207]) GERARD de Durnay, son of JACQUES Seigneur de Durnay & his wife Agnes --- (-[after Apr 1234, maybe after 1246).  "Girardus dominus Durnaii" donated revenue from "terciis nostri de Vendopera" to the Teutonic Knights, with the consent of “uxoris mee Margarete”, by charter dated Apr 1234[551].  ["Gerardi domini Durnaii et Margaretæ uxoris eius" donated property to Molesme by charter dated 1246, naming “Hugonis dominus Brecarum et Odæ uxoris eius, Odonis eorum filii et Agnetis uxoris eius[552].]

Three brothers.  The name Roscelin suggests a relationship with the earliest Vandeuvre family shown above.  Their precise family connection with the Traînel family has not been ascertained. 

 

1.         GEOFFROY de Vandeuvre (-after Jun 1202).  "Garnerius...Trecensis episcopus" [Garnier de Traînel] confirmed that "consanguinei nostri Guido de Vendopera Cathalaunensis canonicus, Godefridus miles et Rocelinus fratres ipsius Guidonis" donated part "in decima Longi Patri ecclesie" to Montiéramey by charter dated Jun 1202[554].
