This document sets out the noble families living in the central part of the medieval county of Champagne.  The area corresponds approximately with the present-day French département of Marne and included the episcopal towns of Châlons-sur-Marne (the town now known as Châlons-en-Champagne) and Reims.  The families are listed in two groups, those located around Châlons-sur-Marne and around Châtillon-sur-Marne.

A.      SEIGNEURS d’AULNAY

 

 

Aulnay-sur-Marne lies about 10 kilometres west of Châlons-en-Champagne (previously Châlons-sur-Marne), in the present-day French département of Marne.  It is presumed to be the location of the medieval seigneurie d’Aulnay, but this has not been confirmed.  The charter dated 7 Jan 1221, quoted below, shows that the Aulnay family was related to the family of the comtes de Rethel.  The letter dated Feb 1249, also quoted below, also shows a family relationship with the Seigneurs de Villehardouin.  The precise relationships have not been established. 

 

 

1.         NIVELON d’Aulnay (-after [1172]).  The Feoda Campanie dated [1172] includes “…dominus Nevelo de Alneto…” in De Ronasco[1]

 

2.         ROBERT d’Aulnay (-after [1172]).  The Feoda Campanie dated [1172] includes “...Robertus de Alneto, Wermundus de Alneto Theobaldus filius eius feodum bladi apud Alnetum, Falco de Alneto ex parte uxoris sue Ermenjardis. Uxor eius. Terram de Petra Morain et tria fora apud Virtutem…” in De Virtute[2]

 

3.         ERARD d’Aulnay (-after [1172]).  The Feoda Campanie dated [1172] includes “...Erardus de Alneto…” in De Vitriaco et appenditiis[3]

 

4.         ELBAUD d’Aulnay (-after [1200/01]).  The Feoda Campanie dated [1200/01] includes “...Ellebaudus de Alneto ligius propter Galcherum de Jovigniaco…vicecomes Ronnaci…” in De Feodis Ronnaci[4]

 

5.         ERARD d’Aulnay (-after 18 Aug 1225).  [A charter dated [25] Dec 1214 records that Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne declared joint succession of sons of his vassals, with their consent, including “...Erardi de Alneto, vicedomini Cathal....” in the list of vassals[5].]  "Dominus Erardus de Alneto et Ermeniardis uxor sua" donated property "in Mesnillo Letranni sito juxta Avenz" to Montiéramey, with the consent of “dominus...Manasses de Pougiaco”, by charter dated 18 Aug 1225[6]m ERMENGARDE, daughter of --- (-after 18 Aug 1225).  "Dominus Erardus de Alneto et Ermeniardis uxor sua" donated property "in Mesnillo Letranni sito juxta Avenz" to Montiéramey, with the consent of “dominus...Manasses de Pougiaco”, by charter dated 18 Aug 1225[7].  The involvement of Manassès de Pougy suggests joint ownership of the property in question and that the donors’ interest came from Erard’s wife, suggesting in turn that she was from the Pougy family.  If that is correct, she may have been Ermengarde de Pougy, daughter of Renaud de Pougy & his wife Oda de Noyers. 

 

6.         ODARD d’Aulnay (-[Feb 1235/Apr 1239]).  The Feoda Campanie dated [1200/01] includes “...Odardus de Alneto terre apud Villam Domange…” in De Feodis Ronnaci[8].  The Feoda Campanie dated [1200/01] includes “...Odardus de Alneto in feodo Vitiers le Torners...” in De Vitriaco et Appenditiis[9].  Maréchal de Champagne.  “Odardus de Alneto Campanie marescallus” noted that “Manassero de Fauereces...et...uxoris suæ” had sold property “apud Geoncourt” to Blanche comtesse de Champagne who had granted it to “uni filiorum meorum”, on condition that he became her vassal, by charter dated Apr 1215[10].  “Odardus de Alneto, Campanie marescallus” agreed the marriage of serfs with “consanguineum ac dominum meum Hugonem comitem Regitestensem” by charter dated 7 Jan 1221[11].  “Erardus de Alneto” swore allegiance to “comitem Grandis-prati” for “castro Portuens.”, referring to the contingency of “Odardus marescallus pater...dicti Erardi” dying, by charter dated 1223[12]m ---.  The name of Odard’s wife is not known.  Odard & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         ERARD d’Aulnay (-after [1228])Erardus de Alneto” swore allegiance to “comitem Grandis-prati” for “castro Portuens.”, referring to the contingency of “Odardus marescallus pater...dicti Erardi” dying, by charter dated 1223[13]The Feoda Campanie dated [1228] includes “...Liebaudo de Befroimont...Bouchardo de Monte Morantio...Erardo de Alneto, Gaufrido de Alneto…” in Submonitio Retrobanni[14]Maréchal de Champagne.  The Feoda Campanie dated [1222/43] includes “...Margareta uxor Erardi marescalli…” in Feoda Varia[15]m (1222) as her second husband, AGNES, widow of RAOUL Seigneur de Château-Porcien, daughter of --- (-after [1249/52]).  Barthélemy says that she was “Agnès de Bazoches, fille de Nicolas et d’Agnès de Cérisy” but cites no primary source on which this parentage is based[16].  “Raoul Sr de Château-Porcien et Agnès sa femme” confirmed donations made to Signy by “Henri comte de Grandpré et Sr. de Château-Porcien son bisayeul...[et] par son ayeul paternel Geoffroy” by charter dated May 1211[17].  Agnes founded an anniversary for her husband “au jour de Saint-Augustin” by charter dated 1218[18].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the following document: "Erard d’Aunay épousant Agnès dame de Château-Porcien" promised to return Château-Porcien to the children of “Raoul précédent mari d’Agnès” by charter dated 1222[19]The Feoda Campanie dated [after 1234] includes “...domina Agnes relicta Herardi de Aunaio…et quando duo filii eius fuerunt---…[20].  The Rôles de Fiefs of Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne, dated [1249/52], includes “...domina Agnes relicta Herardi de Aunaio…et quando duo filii eius fuerunt---…[21]Erard & his wife had two children: 

i)          two sons .  The Feoda Campanie dated [after 1234] includes “...domina Agnes relicta Herardi de Aunaio…et quando duo filii eius fuerunt---…[22]

b)         [GERARD d’Aulnay (-after [1228]).  The Feoda Campanie dated [1228] includes “...Erardo de Alneto, Gaufrido de Alneto…” in Submonitio Retrobanni[23].  Their adjacent names suggest a close relationship between Erard and Gérard d’Aulnay, maybe they were brothers.] 

 

 

1.         VILAIN [I] d’Aulnay (-after 1261).  Marshal of Romania.  “Guillaume de Ville-Hardouin prince d’Achaye et seneschal de Romanie” notified Thibaut Comte de Champagne that he had entrusted mon cher cousin Vilain d’Aunoy mareschal de l’empire de Romanie” with “mon heritage à Ville-Hardouin et à Brandonviller” by letter dated Feb 1249 (N.S.)[24].  The precise relationship between the Aulnoy and Villehardouin families has not yet been ascertained.  Baron of Arkadia.  Guillaume de Villehardouin Prince of Achaia granted him the barony of Arkadia in 1261 after he installed himself in Morea following the expulsion of Emperor Baudouin II from Constantinople.

1.         VILAIN d’Aulnay (-after May 1247)Seigneur de Resson, presumably inherited from his wife’s family which has not been traced.  “Villanus de Alneto armiger dominus de Resson” confirmed that “Richard maire de Rethel et Marie sa femme” sold part of “decima de Pargny et de Resson” to Reims Saint-Nicaise by charter dated May 1247[25]

 

 

 

B.      SEIGNEURS de BROYES

 

 

Broyes was a castle and village in the canton of Sézanne, within the present-day French département of Marne.  Orderic Vitalis refers to the construction of "turris de Pedveriis", probably Pithiviers, which is the original location with which the seigneur de Broyes are linked[26]

 

 

1.         RAINARD (-Rome ----, bur Rome).  Seigneur de Pithiviers.  960.  The Vita of St Gregory Archbishop of Nikopolis records "Reynardo iam defuncto…ante fores Romanæ ecclesiæ sepulto" as the father of "Odolricum"[27]m firstly ---.  The primary source which confirms this first marriage has not yet been identified.  This first marriage is confirmed by the reference to Odalric as "unigenitum suum" in relation to his mother (see below), which means that Isembart must have been born from an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage of his father.  m secondly HELOISE, sister of ROGER Bishop of Beauvais, daughter of --- (-Jan ----).  The Vita of St Gregory Archbishop of Nikopolis records "nobilis matrona Allvisa" in "Pithiueris" as mother of "Odolricum", specifying that Odolric was "unigenitum suum" in relation to his mother[28]Labande confirms that Odolric was the son of Rainard de Broyes seigneur de Pithiviers and his wife Héloise[29]Her family origin is confirmed by charter dated 1028 of Robert II King of France, confirming donations to Notre-Dame de Colombes, which names her son "Aurelianensium præsul Odolricus" and "iamdicti Odolrici præsulis avunculus Rogerius Belvacensis episcopus"[30].  The necrology of Pithiviers Saint-Georges records the death in Jan of "dominæ Heloysiæ quondam ducissæ Aurelianensis", adding that she founded the church[31].  The anachronistic "ducissa" indicates that the record was not contemporary, although it provides some indication of the relative importance accorded to her family in the region.  Rainard & his first wife had one child: 

a)         ISEMBART (-after 1028).  "Odolricus Aurelianorum episcopus…et frater meus Isembardus" confirmed possessions of Chartres Saint-Père "in pago Dunensi in loco…Ursi Villaris" by charter dated to before 1028[32]

-        see below

Rainard & his [second] wife had one child: 

b)         ODOLRIC (-[1033]).  The Vita of St Gregory Archbishop of Nikopolis records "nobilis matrona Allvisa…patre suo Reynardo" in "Pithiueris" as parents of "Odolricum…Aurelianensis…episcopus", specifying that Odolric was "unigenitum suum" in relation to his mother[33]Labande confirms that Odolric was the son of Rainard de Broyes seigneur de Pithiviers and his wife Héloise[34]Bishop of Orléans [1022].  "Odolricus Aurelianorum episcopus…et frater meus Isembardus" confirmed possessions of Chartres Saint-Père "in pago Dunensi in loco…Ursi Villaris" by charter dated to before 1028[35].  A charter dated 1028 of Robert II King of France, confirming donations to Notre-Dame de Colombes, names "Aurelianensium præsul Odolricus" and "iamdicti Odolrici præsulis avunculus Rogerius Belvacensis episcopus"[36]

 

 

ISEMBART, son of RAINARD & his first wife --- (-after 1028).  "Odolricus Aurelianorum episcopus...et frater meus Isembardus" confirmed the possession of “æcclesiam in pago Dunensi...Ursi Villaris” to Saint-Père-en-Vallée by charter dated to before 1028[37].  A charter dated 1028 of Robert II King of France, confirming donations to Notre-Dame de Colombes, names "Aurelianensium præsul Odolricus" and "iamdicti Odolrici præsulis avunculus Rogerius Belvacensis episcopus", and is signed by "Isambardi fratris ipsius episcopi, Hugonis filii ipsius Isamberti"[38]

m ---.  The name of Isembart's wife is not known. 

Isembart & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         HUGUES [I] "Bardoul" de Broyes (-[killed in battle Arques] [25 Oct 1053] or 1058 or after).  A charter dated 1028 of Robert II King of France, confirming donations to Notre-Dame de Colombes, names "Aurelianensium præsul Odolricus" and "iamdicti Odolrici præsulis avunculus Rogerius Belvacensis episcopus", and is signed by "Isambardi fratris ipsius episcopi, Hugonis filii ipsius Isamberti"[39]Seigneur de Broyes, de Beaufort, de Pithiviers et de Nogent.  [Guillaume of Jumièges records that “Willelmum Archacensem” rebelled against Guillaume II Duke of Normandy, helped by Henri I King of France, and that “Ingelrannus Abbatisvillæ comes...ac Hugo cognomento Bardulfus” were killed by the duke’s forces during the attack on his castle of Arques[40].  This rebellion is dated to [1053].  In view of the mention of Hugues “Bardoul” in the charter dated to [1061/62 or before] quoted below, there is either some inaccuracy in the report of Guillaume of Jumièges or that charter must be dated to much earlier.]  "Vir nobilis Hugo Bardul" donated property to Montiérender by charter dated [1061/62 or before], subscribed by "Teobaldi comitis, Hilduini comitis, Burdini de Belfort, Manasse filii eius"[41].  [m firstly ---.  No direct indication of this supposed first marriage has been found.  However, the fact that property donated by Hugues [I] and his known wife Elisabeth reverted to Elisabeth’s “nepos eius...Hugo cognomine Blavons” after her death suggests that that she died without direct heirs.  If that is correct, the children of Hugues [I] would have born from an earlier otherwise unrecorded first marriage.  Was she heiress of Nogent-le-Roi which passed to her supposed daughter Isabelle (see below)?]  m [secondly] ELISABETH, daughter of ---.  An undated charter records that “Hugonem cognomine Bardulfum cum uxore sua Elisabeth” donated “terram in pago Carnotense...Soors” to Coulombs, and that after the death of Elisabeth “nepos eius...Hugo cognomine Blavons” retook the land[42].  This document suggests that Elisabeth was the sister of Humbeline, wife of Erard [I] Comte de Breteuil (see CENTRAL FRANCE NOBILITY), who were the parents of Hugues “Blavons” Vicomte de Chartres.  Hugues [I] & his [first] wife had [three] children: 

a)         BARTHELEMY de Broyes (-after 1072).  His parentage is confirmed by a charter dated 1081 under which "comes Stephanus Henricus…consulis Theobaldi filius" confirmed donations to Troyes, including the donation made by "Bartholomeus…dominus Brecarum miles…ipsius Bartholomei filius…orphanus et parvulus" for the souls of "patris sui atque avi cognomine eius qui et…Bardulphus cognominatur"[43]Seigneur de Broyes et de Beaufort. 

-        see below

b)         ISABELLE de Broyes .  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter dated 1160 under which Louis VII King of France confirmed donations to the abbey of Colombs near Nogent, including donations made by "Hugo…Bardulfus…et Simon de Monteforti gener eius et successor"[44].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.  Dame de Nogent-le-Roi.  m as his first wife, SIMON Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury, son of AMAURY de Montfort & his wife Bertrade --- (-25 Sep [1087], bur Epernon). 

c)         [HAVISE de Broyes A fragmentary chronicle of the dukes of Aquitaine records that "Rainaldus…de Podio-fagi, Trulli frater germanus…cum Helvisa conjuge filiisque suis Hugone atque Willelmo" donated property “de Henssionensi” to the abbey of Saint-Maixence[45].  A fragmentary chronicle of the dukes of Aquitaine records that "Helvisa" was the daughter of “Hugone nuncupato Bardulfo qui tenuit Puirium castrumque de Bellofonte et etiam de Novigento” and that she married “Valeranno Franciæ Camerario” after the death of her first husband[46].  However, it should be noted that this particular source appears not to be completely reliable.  Until another source emerges which corroborates Havise’s origin and marriage, it is best to treat this information with some caution.  m firstly RENAUD du Puy-du-Fou, son of --- (-before 1060).  Camerarius of France.  m secondly GALERAN, son of GAUTHIER & his wife ---.  Camerarius of France.] 

 

 

BARTHELEMY de Broyes, son of HUGUES [I] "Bardoul" Seigneur de Broyes & his [first wife ---] (-after 1072).  His parentage is confirmed by a charter dated 1081 under which "comes Stephanus Henricus…consulis Theobaldi filius" confirmed donations to Troyes, including the donation made by "Bartholomeus…dominus Brecarum miles…ipsius Bartholomei filius…orphanus et parvulus" for the souls of "patris sui atque avi cognomine eius qui et…Bardulphus cognominatur"[47]Seigneur de Broyes et de Beaufort. 

m ([1065]) [ELISABETH] de Valois, daughter of RAOUL [III] Comte de Valois et de Crépy et de Vitry & his first wife Aelis de Bar-sur-Aube (-[12 May 1093/1101]).  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of St Simon de Valois records that "Aaliz" daughter of Raoul Comte de Valois and his first wife married "Bartolomeus, juvenis de Breias" by whom she was mother of "Hugonem Bardoul"[48].  It is unclear from the text whether this statement is based on primary source data.  The information appears to be corroborated by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which records that "Hugo…cognomento Bardol domnus…de Broyes" invaded "Barrum-super-Albam et Firmitatem…de assensu regis Philippi" after the death of "comitis Veromandie [error for Valois] Rodolfi" [his maternal grandfather][49].  The last named would have been the maternal grandfather of Hugues [II] "Bardoul" if his mother’s origin was as stated in the Acta Sanctorum commentary.  It is assumed that the name "Aaliz" is an error as the couple is already recorded elsewhere with daughters named Adelais, Adela/Alix.  Her marriage is confirmed by 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"[50].  Dame de Châteauvillain et d'Arc-en-Barrois. 

Barthélemy & his wife had [two] children: 

1.         HUGUES [II] "Bardoul" de Broyes (-before 1121).  His parentage is confirmed by a charter dated 1081 under which "comes Stephanus Henricus…consulis Theobaldi filius" confirmed donations to Troyes, including the donation made by "Bartholomeus…dominus Brecarum miles…ipsius Bartholomei filius…orphanus et parvulus" for the souls of "patris sui atque avi cognomine eius qui et…Bardulphus cognominatur"[51].  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of St Simon de Valois records that "Aaliz" daughter of Raoul Comte de Valois and his first wife married "Bartolomeus, juvenis de Breias" by whom she was mother of "Hugonem Bardoul"[52]Seigneur de Broyes, de Beaufort, d'Arc-en-Barrois, de Baye, de Trilbardou et de Charmentray.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "Hugo…cognomento Bardol domnus…de Broyes" invaded "Barrum-super-Albam et Firmitatem…de assensu regis Philippi" after the death of "comitis Veromandie [error for Valois] Rodolfi" [his supposed maternal grandfather][53].  Given that the death of Raoul [III] Comte de Valois is dated to 1074, Hugues would have been a minor at the time.  It is assumed, therefore, either that Alberic intended to indicate Hugues’s father as the protagonist or that the attack was carried out by Hugues’s guardian in his name.  Albert of Aix records that "…Hugo Bardulfus de Breis…" joined with the Lombard contingent on the second wave of the First Crusade, dated to late 1100 from the context[54].  "Hugo Bardulfus dominus Brecensis" donated "villam…Payacum" to Molesme, with the consent of "uxoris meæ Emelinæ, filiorumque meorum Simonis et Bartholomei", by charter dated 1104[55]m EMMELINE de Montlhéry, daughter of MILON [I] "le Grand" Seigneur de Montlhéry & his wife Lithuaise Vicomtesse de Troyes (-1121).  The Continuation de l’Histoire d’Aimonus names "matrem Simonis de Breiis, matrem Guidonis de Dominapetra, matrem Hugonis de Planceio, matrem Milonis de Erucio, matrem Salonis vicecomitis Senonensis" as the daughters of "Milo [de Brayo, frater Guidonis Rubei]"[56].  A charter dated 1089 records property "apud Fontanetum" donated to Saint-Pierre la Celle de Troyes donated by "domno Hugone Bardulfo", with the consent of "ipsius domni Hugonis uxore Hemmelina"[57].  "Hugo Bardulfus dominus Brecensis" donated "villam…Payacum" to Molesme, with the consent of "uxoris meæ Emelinæ, filiorumque meorum Simonis et Bartholomei", by charter dated 1104[58].  Hugues [II] & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         SIMON [I] de Broyes (-[4 Jan 1137/1140], bur Baye, near Epernay)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Symon de Brois, qui iacet in Baia, filius Hugonis Bardol"[59]Seigneur de Broyes, de Beaufort et de Baye. 

-        see below

b)         BARTHELEMY de Broyes .  "Hugo Bardulfus dominus Brecensis" donated "villam…Payacum" to Molesme, with the consent of "uxoris meæ Emelinæ, filiorumque meorum Simonis et Bartholomei", by charter dated 1104[60]

c)         [MARIE de Broyes .  A charter dated 1131 records donations made by "Simon dominus Brecensis", with the consent of "uxoris suæ et liberorum suorum…Hugonis, Simonis et Emelinæ", as well as a donation by "Maria…de Brecis" with the consent of "Helias…dominus Montismirabilis"[61].  The document does not specify any relationship between Marie de Broyes and the other donors, but presumably she was a close member of the family maybe Simon’s sister. 

2.         [RENAUD de Broyes (-killed in battle Nikaia [1096]).  Albert of Aix records the role of "Reinoldus de castello Breis" at the siege of "Malevillam" during the passage of the first crusaders through Hungary, dated to 1096 from the context[62].  Albert of Aix records that "Petrus, Reinoldus de Breis, Walterus filius Waleramni de Bretoil, Godefridus Burel, Folcherus Aureliensis" regrouped with 500 men on a mountain after the crusaders were attacked by "ducem Nichitam principem Bulgarorum" outside "urbem Nizh" before proceeding on their way[63].  Albert of Aix records that "Reinoldum de Breis, Walterum Senzavohir, Walterum quoque de Bretol et Folkerum Aureliensem", leaders of the army of Pierre l’Hermite, refused to counter-attack the Turks after the crusading army was first defeated at Nikaia and were declared cowardly by "Godefridus…Burel" leader of the foot soldiers, which spurred them into action, but that "Walterus Senzavohir…Reinoldus de Breis, Folerus Carnotensis" were killed in the ensuing battle[64].  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  It is possible that it is speculative, indicating by the chronology of the Broyes family.]

 

 

SIMON [I] de Broyes, son of HUGUES [II] "Bardoul" Seigneur de Broyes & his wife Emmeline de Montlhéry (-[4 Jan 1137/1140], bur Baye, near Epernay)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Symon de Brois, qui iacet in Baia, filius Hugonis Bardol" as husband of "Felicitatem"[65].  "Hugo Bardulfus dominus Brecensis" donated "villam…Payacum" to Molesme, with the consent of "uxoris meæ Emelinæ, filiorumque meorum Simonis et Bartholomei", by charter dated 1104[66]Seigneur de Broyes, de Beaufort et de Baye.  "Simon dominus Brecarum" donated property to Andecy (Marne) by charter dated 1131 with the consent of "Felicitatis uxoris sue et liberorum suorum Hugonis…Symonis et Emelina"[67]

C.      VIDAMES de CHÂLONS

 

 

Marlot records that the vidame was responsible for administering the property of the church and deciding disputes involving the vassals, performing a role similar to that of the avoués in other ecclesiastical jurisdictions[198].  In sufficient primary sources have been consulted to reconstruct a continuous succession of vidames of the church of Châlons-sur-Marne, although the example of vidames in other episcopal jurisdictions shows that the position was usually inherited within the same family. 

 

 

1.         JEAN (-after [1121/26]).  Vidame de ChâlonsJohannes vicedominus...et Alaidis uxor sua” agreed with Toussaint-en-l’Ile abbey concerning “Mafusga”, with the consent of “Ebalus episcopus”, by undated charter (dated to [1121/26])[199]m ALAIDIS, daughter of ---.  “Johannes vicedominus...et Alaidis uxor sua” agreed with Toussaint-en-l’Ile abbey concerning “Mafusga”, with the consent of “Ebalus episcopus”, by undated charter (dated to [1121/26])[200]

1.         GUERMOND .  His name suggests that Guermond was probably the son of Hugues [II], named after his maternal grandfather.  The primary source which confirms that this speculation is correct has not been identified, although Guermond naming his son Hugues, after his own father, also suggests that it is probably right.  Vidame de Châlonsm BEATRIX de Joinville, daughter of SIMON Seigneur de Joinville & his first wife Ermengarde de Montclair (-before May 1249).  "Simon seigneur de Joinville, sénéchal de Champagne" donated property to Clairvaux, with the consent of "sa femme Ermengart, de son fils Geoffroy, de ses filles Isabelle et Béatrix", by charter dated 1216[208].  Her marriage is indicated by the charter dated 5 Feb 1258 under which "Jean de Thorote châtelain de Noyon et Anseau de Traînel maréchal de Champagne" declared that "Hugues chevalier vidame de Châlons et Gui de Clefmont chevalier" wished to maintain the agreement dated 1249 and requested "leur oncle sénéchal de Champagne…" to seal the act[209].  Guermond & his wife had [two] children:

b)         [--- The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that Hugues maréchal de Champagne married secondly “la fille le visdame de Chaalons[212].  The name of this person’s father has not been ascertained, but the chronology suggests that he was probably Guermond Vidame de Châlons.  m as his second wife, HUGUES [II] Seigneur de Conflans Maréchal de Champagne, son of HUGUES [I] Seigneur de Conflans, Maréchal de Champagne & his first wife Marie de Brienne (-after 1282).] 

 

 

 

D.      SEIGNEURS de CONFLANS

 

 

According to Père Anselme, the seigneurie de Conflans was "dans l’élection de Chalons, distante de quatre lieues de cette ville et de douze du comté de Brienne"[213]Barthélemy says that the castle of this Conflans family was located in the parish of Villeseneux[214], about 10 kilometres south-west of Châlons-sur-Marne (now called Châlons-en-Champagne).  In another work, the same author specifies that Conflans was named for its location at the confluence of the two small rivers of la Saux and la Sallie[215].  Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Confluens...”, by bull dated [1105][216], although it is uncertain to which Conflans this relates.  The reconstruction shown below is based largely on a genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350][217].  This differs in many respects from the information set out in Europäische Stammtafeln[218] and Père Anselme[219].  The major differences are highlighted below.  Hopefully more charter information will emerge which might elucidate some of these problem areas. 

 

 

Two siblings, parents not yet identified.  A genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], indicates that “Messire Eustasses Torchapeaux sire de Conflans et de Mareuil” [identified as Eustache [II] Seigneur de Conflans who is named below] was “nepveu dou comte de Brienne, de messire Jean de Brienne frere doudit comte...roy d’Acre et de Jerusalem[220].  The precise relationship between the Conflans and Brienne families has not been ascertained.  Père Anselme indicates that Eustache [I] Seigneur de Conflans was the grandson of Engelbert de Brienne, son of Gauthier [I] Comte de Brienne[221].  A relationship with the Joinville family, presumably through Félicité de Brienne who was the paternal grandmother of Geoffroy de Joinville, is indicated by the following charter:  “Gaufridus de Ioinvilla Campaniæ senescallus” offered guarantees to Blanche comtesse de Champagne relating to property which her husband had granted to “consanguineo meo Eustachio de Conflans” and which she had returned to “Guidoni de Plaisseto fratri eiusdem Eustachii”, and “Maria uxor præfati Eustachii et Guido frater eius” confirmed, by charter dated Aug 1201[222]

2.         HODIERNE de Conflans (-before 1215)She is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[246], but the primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  Gaufridus marescallus Campanie” confirmed that “Guido miles cognomento Le Grève frater meus” had donated property to Larivour abbey by charter dated 1202, subscribed by “Hodierna uxor Guidonis et Wibors filia eorum[247]m (before 1172) as his first wife, GUY de Villehardouin “la Grive” Seigneur de Villevoque, son of --- (-before 1223). 

 

 

EUSTACHE [III] de Conflans, son of EUSTACHE [II] Seigneur de Conflans & his wife Helvide de Thourotte (-after Sep 1293)The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Messire Eustasses Torchapeaux sire de Conflans et de Mareuil” had two sons of which the older was “Eustasses...sire de Mareuil et connestable de Champagne[248].  “Eustaces de Conflans et...Hiees ses freires chr.” declared having paid a debt owed to Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne by charter dated Nov 1249[249].  “Eustaches de Conflans chevaliers” exchanged “la terre que j’ai...par droit de Iehanne ma femme à Gondricourt” with Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne for land “entre Colomiers en Brie et Chaalons outre Marne” by charter dated May 1250[250].  Maréchal de Champagne.  “Eustache de Conflans mareschaus de Champaigne...et Iehanne sa feme” requested Thibaut V Comte de Champagne, King of Navarre to confirm an exchange of property with the chapter of Troyes by charter dated Feb 1263 (O.S.)[251].  The chapter of Troyes Saint-Etienne gave rights of “Vert [la-Gravelle]” to “Eustache de Conflans maréchal de Champagne et à Jeanne sa femme” in exchange for “[leurs] droits...sur la vicomté de Troyes” by charter dated Feb 1263 (O.S.)[252].  “Eustache de Coulans maréchaux de Champaigne” acknowledged that “madame Heluys dame d’Anglure” had made peace with Neuville-au-Temple by charter dated Sep 1264[253].  Seigneur de Mareuil.  Connétable de Champagne.  “Eustache de Conflans chevalier seigneur de Mareuil et Congy” confirmed the harvest and other produce from Congy to Saint-Pierre d’Oye by charter dated Sep 1293[254]

m (before May 1250) JEANNE, daughter of --- (-after Feb 1264).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Eustache [III] married “Jeanne de Plancy Dame de ½ Gondrecourt (/1250), Victs de Troyes (/1263), d. of Guy de Plancy”[255].  Gondrecourt is named in the charter dated May 1250, quoted below, and the vicomté de Troyes in the charter dated Feb 1263.  The primary source which confirms the Plancy connection has not been identified, although Guy de Plancy is named (not as Jeanne’s father) in the document dated Jul 1250, also quoted below.  Another source points to Eustache’s wife being --- de Blâmont, daughter of ---: the genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Eustasses...sire de Mareuil et connestable de Champagne” married “la fille au seigneur de Blammont[256].  The only person who has yet been identified as “seigneur de Blammont” at that time is Friedrich von Salm Seigneur de Blâmont.  If he was Eustache’s father-in-law, there appear to be two possibilities.  Firstly, assuming that she was the same person as Eustache’s known wife Jeanne, the latter’s mention in 1250 indicates that she could only have been born from Friedrich’s first marriage.  The second possibility is that Eustache married “la fille au seigneur de Blammont” after Jeanne died, this second wife being Friedrich’s daughter by his second wife Jeanne de Bar.  Europäische Stammtafeln indicates that Eustache [III] married secondly “Marie de Soissons, widow of Guy de Saint-Rémy, d. of Cte Jean III”.  As noted below, the [1350] genealogy assigns “--- de Soissons” as the wife of Eustache [IV] (who does not feature at all in the Europäische Stammtafeln reconstruction).  Eustaches de Conflans chevaliers” exchanged “la terre que j’ai...par droit de Iehanne ma femme à Gondricourt” with Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne for land “entre Colomiers en Brie et Chaalons outre Marne” by charter dated May 1250[257].  By charter dated Jul 1250, “Eustaces sires de Coflans” agreed payments for the same to be made within one year, noting that he would not involve “l’Euesque de Toul...ne au signor de Risnel”, and that after one year “je ne voldroie respondre et se Geraviler que je tenoie en fié dou signor de Joinvile qui soloit alues auttans mon signor Guion de Planci et cil Guiz en fist fié[258].  “Eustache de Conflans mareschaus de Champaigne...et Iehanne sa feme” requested Thibaut V Comte de Champagne, King of Navarre to confirm an exchange of property with the chapter of Troyes by charter dated Feb 1263 (O.S.)[259].  The chapter of Troyes Saint-Etienne gave rights of “Vert [la-Gravelle]” to “Eustache de Conflans maréchal de Champagne et à Jeanne sa femme” in exchange for “[leurs] droits...sur la vicomté de Troyes” by charter dated Feb 1263 (O.S.)[260]

Eustache [III] & his wife had three children: 

1.         EUSTACHE [IV] de Conflans ([1250/60]-)The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Eustasses...sire de Mareuil et connestable de Champagne” and his wife “la fille au seigneur de Blammont” had one son “messire Eustasses et fut sire de Mareuil aprez son pere[261]Eustache [IV] is ignored by Europäische Stammtafeln[262].  From a chronological point of view, an additional generation between Eustache [III] and Eustache [V] seems reasonable.  Père Anselme includes Eustache [IV] in his reconstruction, married to “Marie de Soissons”[263]The marriage contract between cuens Guys de Flandres et marchis de Namur et me dame Yzabiaus se feme...Guyon leur fil” and “Marie dame de Mortaingne chastelaine de Tournay, mère à damoisiele Marie, damoisiele et hoir de Mortaingne chastelaine de Tournay”, naming “monseigneur Eustasse de Schoufflans oncle à ledite damoisiele”, is dated Mar 1290[264]m --- de Soissons, daughter of [JEAN [III] Comte de Soissons & his wife Marguerite de Montfort].  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Eustasses, fils du connestable” married “la fille le comte de Soissons[265].  Identifying the father of the wife of Eustache [IV] de Conflans is difficult because of the uncertain chronology of the Conflans family.  If Eustache’s birth is correctly estimated as shown here, it is likely that she was the daughter of Jean [III] Comte de Soissons.  As noted above, Europäische Stammtafeln names “Marie de Soissons, widow of Guy de Saint-Rémy, d. of Cte Jean III” as the second wife of Eustache [III][266].  No primary source has yet been found which confirms that the wife of Eustache [IV] was the widow of Guy de Saint-Rémy.  Père Anselme includes Eustache [IV] in his reconstruction, married to “Marie de Soissons”[267].  Eustache [IV] & his wife had four or more children: 

a)         EUSTACHE [V] de Conflans ([1280/90]-[1335/43])The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], names “messires Eustasses” was oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons[268].  His birth date has been estimated very approximately, based on the possibility that his paternal grandmother was the daughter of Friedrich von Salm Seigneur de Blâmont as noted above.  Seigneur de Mareuil.  m firstly --- de Raineval, daughter of --- Seigneur de Raineval & his wife ---.  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”. oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons”, married firstly “[la] fille au seigneur de Rayneval” by whom he had “une fille qui mourut josne[269]m secondly --- de Grandpré, daughter of [JEAN [I] Comte de Grandpré & his wife Jeanne ---] (-before 1335).  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”. oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons”, married secondly “la fille au comte de Grandpré” by whom he had “plusieurs enfans et en vesquit quatre jusques en bon age[270].  Identifying the father of the second wife of Eustache [V] de Conflans is difficult because of the uncertain chronology of the Conflans family.  If Eustache’s birth is correctly estimated as shown above, it is likely that his wife was the daughter of Jean [I] Comte de Grandpré.  m thirdly (before 22 Nov 1335) as her second husband, ALEMANDE Flotte de Revel, widow ARMAND de Polignac Seigneur de Bouzols, daughter of GUILLAUME Flotte Seigneur de Revel & his wife Jeanne d’Amboise (-1371).  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”. oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons”, married thirdly “la fille monseigneur Flote seigneur de Ravel chancelier de France” by whom he had “un fils...Gaulcher et plusieurs autres qui moururent[271]She married thirdly (before 1343) as his second wife, Enguerrand de Coucy Vicomte de Meaux, and fourthly as his second wife, Gaucher [VIII] de Châtillon Seigneur de ChâtillonA judgment dated 5 May 1350 relates to a claim by "Galcherum de Castellione militem...et Alamandæ uxoris suæ...quondam uxoris Eustacii de Conflans militis” against “Ioannam de Aunayo relictam Ioannis d’Acy quondam militis” relating to the rights of “dictæ Ioannæ ex successione matris suæ[272]Eustache [V] & his first wife had one child: 

i)          daughter .  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”. oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons”, married firstly “[la] fille au seigneur de Rayneval” by whom he had “une fille qui mourut josne[273]

Eustache [V] & his second wife had six or more children: 

ii)         EUSTACHE [VI] de Conflans .  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”, oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons”, married secondly “la fille au comte de Grandpré” by whom he had “plusieurs enfans et en vesquit quatre jusques en bon age”, of whom the oldest was “Eustasses et ly autre...Jean[274]m --- de Dampierre, daughter of PIERRE de Dampierre [sur-Salon] & his wife ---.  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”, son of Eustache [IV] and his second wife, married “la fille monseigneur Pierre de Dampierre[275]

iii)        PIERRE de Conflans (-before [1350]).  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that Eustache [VI] had “un frere...Pierre”, married to “la fille le seigneur de Maulcroix et n’eut nuls enfans” so that “revint la terre toute audit monseigneur Eustasses[276]m [--- de Maulcroix, daughter of --- Seigneur de Maulcroix & his wife ---.  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that Eustache [VI] had “un frere...Pierre”, married to “la fille le seigneur de Maulcroix et n’eut nuls enfans” so that “revint la terre toute audit monseigneur Eustasses[277]According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the wife of Pierre was “Jeanne d’Aunoy”, who married secondly “Jean d’Acy 1345” and thirdly “after 1350 Guillaume de Courferant”[278].  The primary sources on which this information might be based have not been identified, but it repeats what is shown by Père Anselme[279].  The same table says that “N. de Maulcroix” was the wife of “Pierre” whom it identifies as the son of Eustache [VI].  That information appears unlikely to be correct, considering that any children of Eustache [VI] would have been born in the [1350] timeframe and therefore would probably have been mentioned in the [1350] genealogy if they had existed.  Père Anselme states that Eustache [VI] died childless[280].

iv)       HUGUES de Conflans (-[Lyon] before [1350]).  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that Eustache [VI] had “un autre frere...Huet” who lived until the age of 20 and died “ou voiags que le roy Louis à Lion sur le Rosne[281]

vi)       daughter .  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”, oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons”, married secondly “la fille au comte de Grandpré” by whom he had “plusieurs enfans et en vesquit quatre jusques en bon age”, of whom one of the daughters married “monseigneur Pierre de Dampierre”, although this is contradicted by a later passage in the same source which says that the sister of Eustache [VI] was “à marier au jour de la faisance de ceste genealogie[283]It should be noted that Europäische Stammtafeln names “Jeanne” as the daughter of Eustache [V] (but by his third wife) and says that she married firstly “Pierre de Dampierre (sur Salon) sn de la Motte-Toisy 1358” and secondly “Thomas de Voudenay” (whom she would have married after the [1350] genealogy was compiled)[284].  This repeats what Père Anselme says[285][m PIERRE de Dampierre [sur-Salon], son of ---.] 

vii)      [sons and] daughters .  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messires Eustasses”, oldest son of “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons”, married secondly “la fille au comte de Grandpré” by whom he had “plusieurs enfans et en vesquit quatre jusques en bon age[286]

b)         daughter The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons” had “grande lignée de fils et filles”, but that of all the daughters only one was married, “au seigneur de Jully[289].  If that is correct, the chronology suggests that her husband was Jean de Joinville Seigneur de Jully.  m JEAN de Joinville Seigneur de Jully, son of GUILLAUME de Joinville Seigneur de Jully & his wife Marie de Tanlay (-after Jul 1321). 

c)         daughters .  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Eustasses, fils du connestable” and his wife “la fille le comte de Soissons” had “grande lignée de fils et filles”, but that of all the daughters only one was married[290].  The number of other daughters is not known.

Hugues [III] & his second wife had four or more children (according to Europäische Stammtafeln, Hugues [V] was the son of Jeanne de Saint-Chéron by Hugues [IV], the other children are not mentioned[357], maybe based on Père Anselme who provides the same information[358])

The following suggested reconstruction of this branch of the Conflans family differs from that found in all secondary sources consulted, including for example Père Anselme[367] and Europäische Stammtafeln[368], and even from the one shown in the [1350] Conflans genealogy and its late 15th century continuation[369].  The difference is that all these sources assume the existence of only two individuals named Jean de Conflans.  However, the existence of three persons of this name seems inevitable once the birth date of Isabelle de Lor, wife of Jean [I], is estimated to [1295/1300] (which appears reasonably robust based on the suggested reconstruction of the Lor family shown elsewhere in the present document).  That date highlights the impossibility that the person shown below as Jean [III], who is last recorded in 1415, could have been Isabelle de Lor’s son.  The following new reconstruction untangles the confused sources in what appears to be the most logical manner. 

 

JEAN [I] de Conflans, son of HUGUES [II] de Conflans Seigneur de Conflans, Maréchal de Champagne & his second wife --- de Châlons ([1280/1300?]-[before 1350]).  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that Hugues maréchal de Champagne and his second wife “la fille le visdame de Chaalons” had “messire Jean...sire de Vielsmaisons[370].  Seigneur de Vieilmaisons.  Seigneur de Vézilly: Père Anselme records that Jean [I] settled a dispute with the monks of Igny concerning “sa terre de Vezilly” by charter dated Sep 1332[371].  His death before [1350] is indicated by the [1350] Conflans genealogy which records that “messire Jean...sire de Vielsmaisons” [Jean [I]] and his wife had “un fils...Jean de Conflans sire de Vieilsmaisons[372], the attribution of the title “sire” to the latter implying that the former was already deceased at the time of writing.  This suggested date of death appears consistent with the birth of Jean [I] some time during the last two decades of the 13th century, towards the end of his father’s life. 

m ([1320/25?]) as her second husband, ISABELLE de Lor, widow of RENIER [I] de Choiseul Seigneur d’Aigremont, daughter of RENAUD de Lor Châtelain de Laon, Seigneur de Resson & his wife --- de Resson [Aulnay] ([1295/1305]-[Jan] 1347, bur Morimond).  Her first marriage and family origin are confirmed by the summary of a charter dated 2 Jan 1348 which records waiver in favour of “Renier de Choiseul sire d’Aigremont” of a debt incurred by “son père feu Renier de Choiseul chevalier, la veuve de celui-ci feu Isabelle de Lor dame de Vielsmaisons [title from her second marriage], son frère Guillaume chevalier, son autre frère Girard écuyer et lui-même[373], although this summary must be inaccurate as discussed under Renier [II] in the Choiseul-Aigremont section of the present document.  Isabelle’s precise parentage and second marriage are confirmed by the genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], which records that “messire Jean...sire de Vielsmaisons” married “la fille monseigneur Regnauld seigneur de Lor”, by whom he had “un fils...Jean de Conflans sire de Vieilsmaisons[374].  Her date of birth is estimated from the date of marriage of her brother Gaucher de Lor in [May 1322] and considering the probable dates of her two marriages.  The date of her second marriage is suggested by the reconstruction of her descendants by her second husband.  Père Anselme states that “Isabeau de Lor fille de Raoul [mistake for Renaud] de Lor” married secondly Jean de Conflans I du nom seigneur de Vezilly”, and says that she died Jan 1347, and was buried “auprès de son premier mary à Morimond” (without citing any primary sources on which these statements are based)[375].  The date is consistent with the 2 Jan 1348 charter quoted above in which Isabelle de Lor is described as “feu”. 

Jean [I] & his wife had one child: 

1.         JEAN [II] de Conflans ([1321/30?]-[18 Nov 1362/7 Jul 1394]).  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “messire Jean...sire de Vielsmaisons” and his wife “la fille monseigneur Regnauld seigneur de Lor” had “un fils...Jean de Conflans sire de Vieilsmaisons[376].  Seigneur de Vieilmaisons: the attribution of the title “sire” to the later Jean in the Conflans genealogy implies that he had already succeeded the earlier Jean, who was presumably deceased at the time of writing.  The birth date of Jean [II] is therefore estimated on the assumption that he was adult in [1350].  Père Anselme amalgamates Jean [II] and Jean [I] into a single person[377].  This is incompatible with the Conflans family chronology, especially considering (1) the estimated birth date of Isabelle de Lor, wife of Jean [I] (see above) and (2) the last mention of Jean [III] (whom Anselme considers to be Jean [II]) in 1415 as shown below.  Seigneur d’Armentières, de iure uxoris: Père Anselme records that Jean [II] (whom he calls Jean [I]) inventoried “la terre et seigneurie d’Armentières” to Soissons cathedral in his wife’s name by charter dated 18 Nov 1362[378]According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Jean [II] (incorrectly identified as Jean [I], following Anselme) died “1394[379].  Presumably this date relates to the 7 Jul 1394 commission noted below which records Jean [II] as deceased at that time, although this does not exclude the possibility that he died many years earlier.  m ([1350/62?]) as her second husband, PERONNE de Jouvengues, widow of GAUCHER d’Unchair Seigneur d’Armentières, daughter of --- (-after 18 Nov 1362).  Père Anselme records her family origin and two marriages, adding that her second husband (whom he identifies as Jean [I], stating that Péronne was his second wife, in line with the general confusion regarding the number of individuals named Jean in this line of descent) inventoried “la terre et seigneurie d’Armentières”, in her name and as guardian of “Peronnelle d’Unchair” (presumably her daughter by her first marriage), to Soissons cathedral by charter dated 18 Nov 1362[380].  The primary source which confirms these details about Jean’s wife has not been identified.  Péronne’s existence is ignored by the late 15th century continuation of the [1350] Conflans genealogy[381].  The precise date of Péronne’s second marriage is difficult to assess as no record has yet been found which indicates the date of death of her first husband.  Jean [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)         JEAN [III] de Conflans ([1350/70]-after 1415).  The existence of Jean [III] is ignored by the late 15th century continuation of the [1350] Conflans genealogy[382].  As noted above, the omission of Jean [III] as a separate person in this line of descent leads to chronological problems.  In addition, if Jean [III] was the same person as Jean [II], and therefore the son of Jean [I] by Isabelle de Lor, it is unclear how he could have obtained the interest in Armentières which entered the Conflans family through Péronne de Jouvengues if Père Anselme’s report is correct as stated above.  The birth date of Jean [III] is difficult to estimate precisely but presumably he was born some time in [1350/70], consistent with his active adult career which is recorded between 1394 and 1415.  Seigneur de Vieilmaisons.  Père Anselme records a commission dated 7 Jul 1394 relating to land at Armentières inventoried by “feu...seigneur Jean de Conflans chevalier seigneur de Vieilmaisons [identified as Jean [II]], possédé alors par...monsieur Jean de Conflans son fils [identified as Jean [III]]”[383].  This document presumably refers to the document dated 18 Nov 1362 quoted above under Jean [II].  Goethals records that Jean de Conflans “fit le dénombrement” of the seigneurie de Vieilmaisons to “Jean de Harcourt et Guillame de Torcy seigneur de Montmirail” by charter dated 2 Mar 1403[384].  Père Anselme records that Jean [III] (whom he identifies as Jean [II]) issued receipts for various payments in the early 15th century, the last dated 29 Sep 1415[385].  Connétable de France.  Three generations of his descendants are set out in the late 15th century continuation of the [1350] genealogy of the Conflans family[386]m ([1395]) MAGDALENA van Horne, daughter of DIRK-LOEF van Horne Seigneur de Baucigny & his wife Isabelle de Montigny.  Her parentage and marriage are recorded in the late 15th century continuation of the [1350] genealogy of the Conflans family (which, as noted above, incorrectly identifies her husband as Jean [II] de Conflans)[387]

E.      COMTES de DAMPIERRE-en-ASTENOIS

 

 

Dampierre-en-Astenois, today called Dampierre-le-Château, is located in the district of Saint-Menehould, canton Dommartin-sur-Yèvres, in the present-day département of Marne.  As noted in the Introduction to the present document, the area of Astenois, including Dampierre, lay within the pagus Stadunensis[388].  The archdeaconry of Astenois included the doyennés of Sainte-Menehould and Possesse[389]

 

There is some difference of opinion about the precise parentage of Rainard [I] Comte de Dampierre-en-Astenois.  Barthélemy, in the introduction to his collection of Dampierre-en-Astenois charters, states that “les comtes d’Astenois...étaient issues d’un cadet des comtes de Toul”, adding in a later passage that Rainard [II] de Dampierre descended “à la quatrième génération” from Pierre, son of Frédéric II Comte de Toul, although he gives no details of the descent[390]Europäische Stammtafeln agrees about the family connection with the comtes de Toul, but shows Rainard [II] as the grandson of Henri de Toul, younger son of Rainard [III] Comte de Toul (brother of Pierre)[391].  The question is resolved by the bull of Pope Alexander III dated 1163 which is quoted below. 

 

 

RAINARD [I], son of HENRI de Toul & his wife --- (-[1191])Seigneur de Dampierre [en-Astenois].  Guy Bishop of Châlons confirmed the possessions of Montier abbey, including the confirmation made by Rainard “dominus de Damperre filius Henrici” of donations made by “predecessores eius Fredericus comes et Henricus filius eius”, undated, but recorded in a bull of Pope Alexander III dated 1163[392].  “Renard comte de Dampierre et Euphémie sa femme” donated the chapel of Saint-Pierre in the castle of Dampierre to Toussaint-en-l’Ile abbey, together with part “des dîmes...de Rahericourt et Vuailemmont”, by charter dated 1170[393].  The Feoda Campanie dated [1172] includes “...Renardus Domni Petri...” in De Vitriaco et appenditiis[394].  “R. dominus Damni Petra” donated fields “sub Nigro-Loco” to Neuville-au-Temple, with the consent of “H. femine mee et filiorum meorum”, by charter dated to before 1177[395]Comte de Dampierre [en-Astenois].  “Henri châtelain de Vitry” declared that “Gaucher d’Etrepy” had donated property to Cheminon by charter dated 1181, witnessed by “Renard comte de Dampierre, Roger de Chimai, Bertrand de Ste-Menehould...[396].  “R. comes Domus Petri et castellanus de Vitriaco et...Heluys castellana Vitriaci” donated a serf at Vitry to Neuville-au-Temple by charter dated 1190[397]

m [firstly] EUPHEMIE, daughter of ---.  “Renard comte de Dampierre et Euphémie sa femme” donated the chapel of Saint-Pierre in the castle of Dampierre to Toussaint-en-l’Ile abbey, together with part “des dîmes...de Rahericourt et Vuailemmont”, by charter dated 1170[398]

[m secondly DOMINICA, daughter of ---.  Barthélemy refers to an undated charter which records Rainard’s donation to Montier of “une terre située entre le sentier de Villulacurt...et le chemin de Dammartin à Epense” which names “la femme du seigneur de Dampierre...Dominica[399].  This name is unusual and one possibility is that it was some sort of nickname.  If that is correct, it is possible that she was the same person as Euphémie.] 

Rainard [I] & his [first] wife had five or more children: 

1.         BEATRICE de Dampierre (-1206).  “Simon...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio” confirmed the donation of molendinum...de Charmes” made to Beaupré abbey by “Mathæus comes Tullensis frater meus et uxor eius nobilis comitissa Beatrix”, for the anniversaries of “piæ memoriæ Lotharingiæ ducis Mathæi patris mei quod est III Id Maii...matre etiam nostra et Raynardo de Dampierre patre comitissæ Beatricis”, by charter dated 1194[400]m (before 1180) MATHIEU de Lorraine Comte de Toul, son of MATHIEU I Duke of Lorraine & his wife Berta [Judith] von Staufen (-before end 1207). 

2.         RAINARD [II] de Dampierre (-[Mar 1234])Comte de Dampierre [en-Astenois].  R. de Dampna Petra comes” declared that “R. bone memorie pater meus” on his deathbed had donated property at Noirlieu to Neuville-au-Temple by charter dated to [1191][401].  Châtelain de Vitry, de iure uxoris: “Renard comte de Dampierre châtelain de Vitry” donated the right to acquire property at Vitry to Cheminon, with the consent of “Helvis sa femme”, by charter dated 1197[402].  Villehardouin names “...Reinarz de Danpierre...” among those who left from Champagne on crusade in 1201[403].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne, when he died in 1201, appointed "comitem Reynaldum de Dampetra" to lead his army [on crusade] "in partes transmarinas cum sufficientibus expensis"[404].  An entry in the Feoda Campanie dated [1200/01] notes “…R[enardi] de Dampera qui est ultra mare...” in De Sancta Menoldi[405].  “Renardus de Dampetra”, on leaving for Jerusalem, donated “terciam partem tocius decime de Spantia et de Novavilla ad Curtem” to Montier abbey, with the consent of “filiis meis Renardo et Anselmo”, by charter dated 1202[406].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois Fontaines names "comes Renaldus de Dampetra" among those who left on crusade in 1202, adding that he left the army in Zara (presumably after the Venetians diverted the crusade towards Constantinople) to travel, in accordance with his promise to the comte de Champagne, to Syria where he was captured and held by "Sanguinum principem Alapie" for thirty years[407].  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” were captured by the Turks[408].  The Feoda Campanie dated [1204/10] includes “…Renardus de Dumpetra…” in De Magnis Feodis[409], although this was during his captivity in Syria.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois Fontaines records in 1232 that "comes Renaldus de Dampetra" was released "a Sarracenis" and returned after thirty years[410].  “Renard cuens de Dampiere” renounced rights of usage “en mes bois...Les Ailleufz vers Sommelle” by charter dated 1232[411].  After this date, Renard [II] abandoned the use of the comital title, as shown by the following charters.  “Renardus dominus de Dampetra...et Anselmus filius meus” donated “domum meam...Autrecourt” to the Templars at Saint-Amand near Vitry by charter dated 3 Mar 1233[412].  “Renard comte de Dampierre, revenant de la croisade” confirmed donations to Monstiers-en-Argonne made before he left, and “ledit Renard et Anselme son fils” swore before Philippe Bishop of Châlons to respect this, and he also confirmed donations made to the abbey during his absence by “Renard et Anselme ses fils, Henry son frère et sa sœur Marie”, by charter dated 1203 (misdated from 1233 (?), as indicated by the following document and because Bishop Philippe was invested in 1228)[413].  Philippe Bishop of Châlons notified the agreement made between “Renardus dominus de Dampetra” and Montier confirming donations made during his absence by “duobus filiis suis Renardo et Anselmo vel...fratre suo Henrico et sorore sua Maria” by charter dated 1233[414].  “Renard sire de Dampierre...rediens a partibus transmarinis” declared he claimed back property donated to Cheminon Notre-Dame by “son frère de bonne mémoire Henri de Ponthion”, but later compensated the abbey, by charter dated Jun 1233[415].  “Renardus dominus de Domna Petra” confirmed the abandon by the monks of Montier of rights granted by “bone memorie pater meus Renardus dominus de Dampetra assensu uxoris sue et filiorum et filiarum suarum” by charter dated Jul 1233[416].  “Renardus dominus de Donna Petra”, on his deathbed, donated property to the leprosarium of Châlons-sur-Marne, with the consent of “filii mei”, by charter dated Mar 1233 (maybe O.S.)[417]m (after [1191]) as her second husband, HELVIDE, widow of HENRI de Rethel Châtelain de Vitry, daughter of ---.  Her two marriages are indicated by the charter dated 1221 under which [her son] “Hugues châtelain de Vitry et seigneur de Somme-Vesle” approved the donation of his lands at Noirlieu to Neuville-au-Temple made by “son frère Anselme de Dampierre[418].  Rainard [II] & his wife had two children: 

a)         RAINARD [III] de Dampierre (-before Jul 1230).  “Renardus de Dampetra”, on leaving for Jerusalem, donated “terciam partem tocius decime de Spantia et de Novavilla ad Curtem” to Montier abbey, with the consent of “filiis meis Renardo et Anselmo”, by charter dated 1202[419].  “Henri de Dampierre et Cécile sa femme, ses fils et ses filles consentant” donated property between the Marne and the Broisson to Cheminon, with the approval of “Renard et Anselme fils de Renard de Dampierre, frère de Henri”, by charter dated 1207[420]Seigneur de Dampierre [en-Astenois].  “Renardus dominus de Dampetra”, intending to leave for Jerusalem, confirmed donations made by “pater meus Renardus”, with the consent of “fratre meo Anselmo nec non et nepotibus meis...filiis Henrici avunculi mei et filiis Marie matertere mee”, by charter dated 1217[421].  “R. dominus de Dampetra”, intending to leave for Jerusalem, confirmed “in parte decime mee de Nova-Villa ad Curtem” to the monks of Montier by charter dated 1219[422].  “Renard seigneur de Dampierre” renounced claims against Ulmoy abbey concerning the mill at “Rapsécourt”, with the consent of “Béatrix sa femme”, by charter dated 1226[423].  The abbot of Châtrices refers to the donation of “decima et furno de Veteri Petra” made by “Renardus defunctus filius domini Renardi de Dampetra” and [ratified] by “ipsius R. patris et Anselmi filii eius secundum” by charter dated Apr 1233[424]m (before 1226) as her first husband, BEATRIX de Tilchâtel, daughter of GUY [IV] Seigneur de Tilchâtel & his wife Guillemette [de Bourbonne] (-after 1240).  “Renard seigneur de Dampierre” renounced claims against Ulmoy abbey concerning the mill at “Rapsécourt”, with the consent of “Béatrix sa femme”, by charter dated 1226[425].  Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated Jul 1230 under which “Cécile de Clermont veuve de Henri de Ponthion” granted privileges to Ponthion with the consent of “Gautier sire d’Arzillières et de Béatrix sa femme, veuve de feu de bonne mémoire Renard de Dampierre[426].  She married secondly (before Jul 1230) as his second wife, Gauthier Seigneur d’Arzillières.  Barthélemy records her parentage and two marriages, adding that Jean Seigneur de Tilchâtel guaranteed the dowry of his sister Beatrix in 1236 and in 1240 exchanged property with “Gautier d’Arzillières mari de sa sœur[427].  Rainard [III] & his wife had one child: 

i)          RAINARD [IV] de Dampierre (-[Dec 1230/1232]).  Anseau [I] de Dampierre, guardian of “son neveu Renard”, donated revenue to Saint-Paul de Verdun and agreed a payment in case “son neveu” failed to ratify the donation on reaching the age of majority, by charter dated Dec 1230[428].  Rainard [IV] must have died before or shortly after the return of his paternal grandfather from captivity as he is not named in any subsequent charters.

Vitry appears to be identified, from among the many places of this name in northern France, as Vitry-en-Perthois which is located about 20 kilometres south-east of Châlons-en-Champagne.  Eudes de Vitry, named below, is recorded as Châtelain de Vitry by Alberic de Trois Fontaines when recording his marriage to the heiress of the county of Rethel.  No earlier record has been found which indicates Eudes’s parentage or when he or his predecessors acquired the châtellenie of Vitry.  Eudes and his descendants continued to hold both Rethel and Vitry until the late 12th century, when the châtellenie of Vitry was granted as an appanage to a junior branch of the family.  Meanwhile, in [1143] Louis VII King of France granted Vitry to Eudes “le Champenois”, whose patrimony had been confiscated by his first cousin Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne and in whose support the French king had invaded the county of Champagne.  The status of Eudes “le Champenois” in Vitry is unclear considering that Eudes Comte de Rethel’s apparently continuing position as châtelain de Vitry.  It is probable that Comte Eudes was temporarily expelled by King Louis but soon succeeded in recapturing the castle from Eudes “le Champenois” with support from Comte Thibaut.  The primary source which confirms that this speculation is correct has not been identified.

1.         EUDES [I] "le Champenois", [illegitimate] son of [HUGUES Comte de Troyes/---] & his second wife Isabelle de Mâcon (-1187 or after).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Odonem…de Canlita" as son of "Hugo comes Campanie" and his second wife, but specifies that "dictum est a phisicis comiti Hugoni…non habebat possibilitatem generandi" and concludes therefore that Eudes could not have been Hugues’s son[528].  The identity of his mother is confirmed by the charter dated 1155 quoted below.  The question of Eudes’s illegitimacy is not as straight-forward as might be imagined from Alberic’s Chronicle taken in isolation.  The king of France’s grant of property to Eudes suggests there was little doubt at the time about his legitimacy: the Chronique de Guillaume de Nangis records that Louis VII King of France led an army against "Thibaut comte de Champagne" and captured "le château de Vitry" which he granted to “Eudes de Champagne, neveu du comte Thibaut, qui lui avait enlevé son patrimoine”, dated to 1143[529].  The implication of this passage is that Eudes’s paternal first cousin, Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne, had raised a claim about Eudes’s illegitimacy as an excuse to seize his property, and that the French king had had limited success in invading Champagne in support of Eudes and had granted him the only property which they had succeeded in capturing.  [Seigneur de Vitry: the status of Eudes “le Champenois” in Vitry is unclear considering that Eudes Comte de Rethel and his descendants are recorded as châtelains de Vitry from the early 12th century.]  Eudes was presumably unable to retain Vitry for long as he is later recorded in Burgundy where he must have found refuge with his maternal family: “Odonem nepotem comitis Guillelmi” donated property to Besançon, for the soul of “avunculi sui comitis Raynaldi”, by charter dated 1155[530].  A further indication of Eudes’s legitimacy is provided by the imperial recognition implicit in the following  grant: Emperor Friedrich I granted Quingiacum, Lislam, Lobium”, as held by “comes Reinaldus in vita sua”, and “villam juxta Dolam...Campus-Pagani” to “Odo Campaniensis...Beatricis...consortis nostræ consanguineus”, by charter dated 26 Jul 1166, witnessed by “...Galcherus de Salins, Wido abbas, Girardus de Fontvens...Gislebertus vicecomes Visulii...Gaymarus de Cycun...[531].  The source which confirms his date of death has not been identified.

Chapter 2.    CHÂTILLON-sur-MARNE

 

 

 

A.      SEIGNEURS de CHÂTILLON (early 10th century)

 

 

The castle of Châtillon-sur-Marne was built by Hérivé, nephew of Hérivé Archbishop of Reims, on land granted to him by his uncle in [920] (see Part A).  The process by which the castle came into the possession of the second Châtillon family (see Part D) has not yet been identified.  The absence of the names Urson and Hérivé, associated with the first Châtillon family, from this second family, suggests that it was not closely related to its predecessors.  The families of the holders of the position "vidame" of the church of Reims are shown in Part B.  Their possible relationship with the Châtillon families is discussed in the introduction to that part. 

 

 

1.         [URSON] Comte [en Champagne].  Colwener’s Catalogue des Archevesques de Rheims names Heriveus canonis Remensis filius Ursi comitis Campaniæ et Bertæ sororis Hucbaldi comitis” when recording his ecclesiastical career, but does not specify the primary source on which Hérivé’s stated parentage is based[564].  No primary source has yet been identified which names Urson, although the reference to the later Urson (see below) suggests that the information may be correct.  m [BERTHE] d'Ostrevant, sister of HUCBALD Comte d'Ostrevant, daughter of ---.]  Flodoard names "domnus Heriveus ex aula…regis" as "nepos ex sorore Hucbaldi comitis" when recording his appointment as Archbishop of Reims[565].  Colwener’s Catalogue des Archevesques de Rheims names Heriveus canonis Remensis filius Ursi comitis Campaniæ et Bertæ sororis Hucbaldi comitis” when recording his ecclesiastical career, but does not specify the primary source on which Hérivé’s stated parentage is based[566].  [Urson] & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         HERIVE (-2 Jul 922)Archbishop of Reims 900.  Flodoard names "domnus Heriveus ex aula…regis" as "nepos ex sorore Hucbaldi comitis" when recording his appointment as archbishop of Reims[567].  He granted his brother and nephew the domains of Vandières and Binson on which they built the castle of Châtillon-sur-Marne.  Flodoard records in 922 that "Heriveus Remorum archiepiscopus" died “tertia die post consecrationem Rotberti regis...VI Non Jul”, four days before the end of his 22nd year in office[568]The necrology of Reims records the death “VI Non Jul” of “dominus Heriveus archiepiscopus[569]

b)         EUDES [Odo] .  Flodoard names "Odo frater quondam Herivei archiepiscopi et Heriveus nepos ipsius" when recording their ordination[570]

c)         [--- .  It is possible that this is the same person as Eudes, brother of Archbishop Hérivé, who is shown above.  m ---.]  One child: 

i)          HERIVE (-killed in battle 947).  Flodoard names "Odo frater quondam Herivei archiepiscopi et Heriveus nepos ipsius" when recording their ordination[571]Flodoard's Annals record that in 947 "Ragenaldus comes et Dodo, frater ipsius præsulis [=Artaud Archbishop of Reims]" attacked castles built "citra Maternam fluvium" by "Heriveus nepos Herivei quondam archiepiscopi", during the course of which "Heriveus" was killed[572].  He held the castle of Châtillon, as shown by Flodoard who in 949 records that "Ragenaldus comes" captured "castrum quondam Herivei…Castellionem"[573]

 

 

1.         URSON (-[after 956]).  Flodoard records in 956 that Lothaire King of the Franks captured "munitionem...super Carum fluvium" from "Ragenarius comes" who had taken it from “Ursioni cuidam Remensis ecclesiæ militi[574].  The reference to Comte Urson, supposed father of Hérivé Archbishop of Reims, and the common association with the church of Reims, suggest that this Urson may have been related to the same family.  Du Chesne suggests that Urson was the brother of Hérivé, nephew of Archbishop Hérivé, but this appears to be speculative[575].  

 

2.         GAUTHIER (-after 952).  Châtelain de Vitry: Flodoard records in 952 that Lothaire King of the Franks "cum Ragenaldo [comes]" captured "Victuriaci castri, quod tenebat Walterius quidam" who had recently defected from the king’s side and had joined Héribert [III] de Vermandois[576]Du Chesne suggests that Gauthier was the brother of Hérivé, nephew of Archbishop Hérivé, and of Urson, and was probably ancestor of the later châtelains de Vitry, but this appears to be speculative[577].  

 

 

 

B.      VIDAMES de REIMS

 

 

Marlot records that the vidame was responsible for administering the property of the church and deciding disputes involving the vassals, performing a role similar to that of the avoués in other ecclesiastical jurisdictions[578].  The post of vidame at Reims is mentioned at the time of the succession of Ebbo Archbishop of Reims during the reign of Emperor Louis I: Flodoard’s Historia Remensis Ecclesiæ names “Radulfum vicedominum[579].  No connection has been found between this Vidame Raoul and the later vidames

 

The later vidames de Reims are shown in many present-day secondary sources as a neatly reconstructed family group, together with their alleged relationship with the later seigneurs de Châtillon.  This reconstruction can be traced back to Du Chesne’s Histoire de la Maison de Chastillon-sur-Marne, published in 1621.  According to Du Chesne, Gervais Vidame de Reims, Guy Archbishop of Reims, and Milon Seigneur de Châtillon were brothers, and Gervais was the father of Manassès Vidame de Reims[580].  The sources which Du Chesne quotes have been extracted and included below, but on close examination none of them confirms these supposed family relationships.  It is probable that the vidamé of Reims was hereditary within the same family, in much the same way as the vidamé of Gerberoy (who represented the bishops of Beauvais) as shown in PARIS REGION NOBILITY.  However, Du Chesne’s reconstruction is pure speculation, and numerous other explanations of the family relationships between the individuals are possible.  For example:

·      Gervais and Manassès may have been brothers, both nephews of Archbishop Guy;

·      the title could have been inherited through the female line; or

·      there could have been two separate families who held the position of vidame at the same time (Gervais and Manassès are named in sources dated in the same year), as was the case with the vidames de Gerberoy. 

In addition, the absence of any source which demonstrates a link between the vidames and the castle of Châtillon, as well as the lack of any obvious onomastic connection between the vidames and the Châtillon family, suggests that the two groups may have been unrelated or only remotely related.  Until further information comes to light, the family of the vidames de Reims has been deconstructed into three groups, which are shown as unrelated in the present section to emphasise that any relationship between them cannot be traced. 

 

 

1.         GERVAIS (-after 1053).  Vidame de ReimsDu Chesne quotes a charter of the abbey of Saint-Thierry near Reims dated 1053 which names Gervasius Remensis civitatis vicedominus[581].

 

 

[Two] siblings: 

1.         GUY (-1055)Archbishop of Reims in Jul 1033.  The Annales Mosomagenses record the succession in 1033 of “Wido” after the death of “Oebalus Remorum archiepiscopus[582].  The Annales Mosomagenses record the death in 1055 of “sanctus Archipræsul Remorum Wido[583]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death in 1056 of "Remensis archiepiscopus Guido" and the succession of "Gervasius…primo fuit episcopus Cenomanensis"[584]

2.         [--- .  Manassès is named as “nepos” of Archbishop Guy in the source quoted below.  If the word can be translated in its strict sense, one of Manassès’s parents was Guy’s sibling.  However, the word could indicate a more remote cousin relationship.]  m ---.  [Three] children: 

a)         MANASSES "le Chauve" (-after 1055).  Vidame de ReimsA charter dated 1053 records land “in villa sancti Remigiii”, in the possession of "cuiusdam vicedomini Remensis…Manasses Calvus, nepos Vidonis archipresulis", on which “domnus abbas Herimarus” wished to build “mansionile...Tollensviam”, and that the archbishop pressured Manassès to donate the land to the church, subscribed by “Manassæ comitis, Rogeri comitis, Rainoldi Suessionici comitis, Vidonis militis[, Iofridi militis, Milonis militis, Aleranni militis][585]m ---.  The name of Manassès's wife is not known.  Manassès & his wife had [three] children: 

i)          [ERLAND (-[after 1113]).  Du Chesne states that Erland was the son of Manassès and succeeded his father in the vidamé de Reims, but cites no primary source which confirms this affiliation[586].  Vidame de ReimsA charter of the abbey of Saint-Thierry near Reims dated 1103, recites the events recorded in the charter dated 1053 quoted above, adds that later Guido filius eius” [=son of Manassès “le Chauve”] requested payment “ab abbate...ecclesiæ S.

Remigii”, in the presence of “domini Manassæ archiepiscopi...fratris sui[588].  Seigneur de Vivé.  m ---.  The name of Guy's wife is not known.  Guy & his wife had one child: 

(a)       CYR (-after 1103).  A charter of the abbey of Saint-Thierry near Reims dated 1103, recites the events recorded in the charter dated 1053 quoted above, adds that later Guido filius eius” [=son of Manassès “le Chauve”] requested payment “ab abbate...ecclesiæ S. Remigii”, in the presence of “domini Manassæ archiepiscopi...fratris sui”, that after Guy died “Cyricus filius eius...clericus” requested “avunculi sui...archiepiscopi” to recognise him as his father’s successor and named “Guarmundus de Castellione” as arbitrator, but the decision went against him, witnessed by “Erlaudi vicedomini...Iacobi de Castellione, Guarmundi...[589].  

iii)        MANASSES (-1106)Archbishop of Reims 1095.  A charter of the abbey of Saint-Thierry near Reims dated 1103, recites the events recorded in the charter dated 1053 quoted above, adds that later Guido filius eius” [=son of Manassès “le Chauve”] requested payment “ab abbate...ecclesiæ S. Remigii”, in the presence of “domini Manassæ archiepiscopi...fratris sui[590].  The Annales Mosomagenses record the death in 1106 of “Manasses Remensis archiepiscopus et Heinricus quartus...[591].  [The necrology of the church of Reims records the death "XIV Kal Oct" of "domnus Manasses...Remensis archiepiscopus" and his donations of “iv altaria, unum de Monte S. Petri, alterum de Miliaco, tertium de Taxeio, quartum de Novavilla[592].  It is not known whether this entry relates to Archbishop Manassès [I] or Manassès [II].] 

b)         daughter Du Chesne states that her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter dated 1056 under which her son Manassès...comte de Porcean” is named “nepueu de Manasses le Chauve”, but he does not cite the source[593].  m ROGER Comte de Porcien, son of --- (-after 1053). 

c)         [--- .  Her parentage and [second] marriage are suggested by one version of the Gesta Episcoporum Cameracensium (Continuatio) which names “Manasses Remensium archiepiscopus, electi Manassæ avunculus[594].  The latter refers to Manassès Bishop of Cambrai and later Bishop of Cambrai, who was the grandson of Renaud Comte de Soissons, and the former to Manassès Archbishop of Reims who was the son of Manassès “le Chauve” Vidame de Reims (see above).  It appears unlikely that the family connection was through the Normandy family of Renaud’s son-in-law Guillaume “Busac” d’Eu.  On the other hand, the connection may have been through the previous generation, asssuming that “avunculus” in the source in question can be interpreted loosely.  This hypothesis would also provide an explanation for the introduction of the name Manassès into the family of the comtes de Soissons.  Her [first] marriage is suggested by the Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis which names "comes Suessionis et comes de Dommartin et comes de Ronaco et Manasses cui agnomen Calva-asina" as brothers ("fratres") of "Helduino comiti de Ramerut", naming "Rainaldum comitem Suessionis et Iohannem, qui fratri successit in comitatum, et Manassem Suessionensem episcopum et filias" as the children of "supradictus comes Suessionis Guilermus…frater iam dicti Helduini"[595].  It is clear from other sources that Guillaume Comte de Soissons descended from the family of the dukes of Normandy.  The only way in which the Genealogiæ could make sense is if "fratres" can be interpreted as including brothers-in-law (an interpretation which has been observed and confirmed as correct in other cases).  If that is correct, it is possible that Renaud’s wife had married firstly Hilduin [II] Seigneur de Ramerupt.  If that is correct, Renaud Comte de Soissons would have married after 1032, the last date when Hilduin [II] is recorded.  This timing appears to fit with the general chronology of the Soissons family, although if it is correct it is likely that Hilduin’s widow would have been Renaud’s second wife.  [m firstly as his second wife, HILDUIN [III] Seigneur de Ramerupt, son of [HILDUIN [II] Seigneur de Ramerupt & his wife ---] (-after 1032).  m [secondly] ([after 1032]) RENAUD Comte de Soissons, son of GUY Comte de Soissons & his wife [Adelisa ---] ([985/92]-early 1057).] 

 

 

According to Du Chesne, the following family group was related to the preceding family as well as the ancestors of the seigneurs de Châtillon-sur-Marne and seigneurs de Bazoches.  This supposed origin appears disproved, unless it was through the female line, by the end-12th century chronicle written by Guy de Bazoches, cantor of the chapter of Saint-Etienne of Châlons-sur-Marne, which is quoted below. 

 

1.         HEUCHER de Lagery .  Seigneur de Lagery.  The chronicle of Guy de Bazoches records that Pope Urban II was “natus de Castellione super Maternam, filius domini de Lageri[596].  The account presented by Du Chesne is less specific about the origin of the Pope’s family, but he suggests that his father was named “Milon”, basing this on Onuphre Panuin’s Petite Chronique des Papes which records Urbanus II iunior Gallus, Otho Milonis filius, ex oppido Castillionis, Remensis diocesis[597].  Du Chesne quotes three main sources which point to the Pope’s origin in the Champagne area.  Firstly, Pope Urban II issued a bull dated 20 Mar 1096 apud Basionum” which records that the church “Bassionensem locum” was donated to Cluny “ex parentum iure” and that an annual payment was made to the canons of Soissons with the consent “ex patris mei[598] (it should be noted that the version of this bull reproduced in Patrologia Latina is not as complete and refers to “Bainsonensem locum” [Binson[599]][600]).  Secondly, the information in this bull relating to the payment to Soissons can be traced to the charter dated 1077 under which Thibaut Bishop of Soissons donated Coincy priory, founded by Thibaut Comte de Troyes, to “ecclesiæ prioratum de Bainsonio” in return for annual revenue, witnessed by “Hugo de Castro-Theodorici miles, Euurardus nepos eius[601].  Thirdly, Guibert de Nogent’s Gesta Dei per Francos records that “Urbanus papa ante papatum Odo vocabatur” was “ex Francis...germine oriundus ex territorio et clero Remensi[602].  Barthélemy states that the necrology of Molesmes records the deaths in June of “Heucher et Isabelle père et mère du pape[603].  These entries are not included in the extracts of this necrology published by Petit[604]m ISABELLE, daughter of ---.  Barthélemy states that the necrology of Molesmes records the deaths in June of “Heucher et Isabelle père et mère du pape[605].  These entries are not included in the extracts of this necrology published by Petit[606].  Heucher & his wife had three children: 

a)         EUDES ([1035]-28 Jul 1099).  Cardinal.  Bishop of Ostia.  He was elected 12 Mar 1088 as Pope URBAN II.  The necrology of Molesmes records the death “IV Kal Aug” of “domnus Urbanus papa[607]

b)         JOBERT .  The chronicle of Guy de Bazoches, cantor of the chapter of Saint-Etienne of Châlons-sur-Marne, names “Joibertum...alium fratrem Radulfum...” as the brothers of Pope Urban II[608]

c)         RAOUL .  [Seigneur de Lagery].  The chronicle of Guy de Bazoches, cantor of the chapter of Saint-Etienne of Châlons-sur-Marne, names “Joibertum...alium fratrem Radulfum...” as the brothers of Pope Urban II, adding that Raoul was father of “Gerardi” whose son “alter Gerardus” was father of “Odonem patrem Egidii de Lageri monachis remensis” whose “soror Hersendis” was mother of “Balduini monachi Igniaci[609]

 

 

 

C.      SEIGNEURS de BAZOCHES

 

 

Du Chesne states that the archbishop of Reims granted Bazoches to the seigneurs de Châtillon-sur-Marne, without citing the corresponding primary source, and adds that he was unable to join the family of the seigneurs de Bazoches to the main Châtillon family, but that “pour ne l’omettre en cette Histoire, je la rapporte par conjecture du temps à Miles seigneur de Châtillon qui vivoit sous le regne de Henry I[610].  Since that time, secondary sources have shown the brothers Manassès and Milon, shown below, as brothers of Pope Urban II and of Guy Seigneur de Châtillon.  This is unfortunate considering the vague language in which Du Chesne proposes the connection.  The precise connection between this family and Gervase de Bazoches Lord of Tiberias (see the document JERUSALEM NOBILITY) has not been established.  The location of “Bazoches” of which this family were seigneurs has not been ascertained.  A town called Bazoches, associated with a castle supposedly first constructed in the 12th century[611], located about 10 kilometres south of Vézelay and about the same distance south-west of Avallon, is in the present-day French département of Nièvre, arrondissement Clamecy, canton Lormes.  In medieval times, this castle would have been located in the pagus Avalensis (Avalois).  No indication has been found that the archbishops of Reims held an interest in a territory which was so remote geographically from their see.  Until more information comes to light, the seigneurs de Bazoches are shown in the Châtillon-sur-Marne group of families.

D.      SEIGNEURS de CHÂTILLON-sur-MARNE (11th century-1219)

 

 

GUY de Châtillon, son of --- (-after 1076)According to Du Chesne, Guy de Châtillon was the son of Milon de Châtillon and brother of Pope Urban II (see above Part B), although he admits “n’avoir rien veu qui justifie” the relationships[648].  No primary source has been identified which links the Châtillon family explicitly with the family of the vidames de Reims.  The absence of the names Milon and Eudes (the original name of Pope Urban), as well as of the names used among the family of vidames, among Guy’s known descendants suggests that the suggested family connection may not be correct.  Du Chesne suggests that “...Vidonis militis...”, one of the witnesses of the charter dated 1053 which records land “in villa sancti Remigiii”, in the possession of "cuiusdam vicedomini Remensis…Manasses Calvus, nepos Vidonis archipresulis", and his later donation of the land to the church[649], was the future Guy Seigneur de Châtillon.  Seigneur de ChâtillonPhilippe I King of France confirmed the foundation of the abbey of Saint-Jean des Vignes de Soissons by charter dated 1076, witnessed by Tetbaldus comes et Stephanus filius eius, Willelmus Gomes, Hugo de Castro-Theodorici, Albricus de Cociaco, Eurardus miles, Gofridus miles, Wido de Castellonio[650].

Guy & his wife had [four] children: 

1.         [GAUCHER [I] de Châtillon (-[late 1100]).  No primary source confirms that Gaucher [I] was the son of Guy Seigneur de Châtillon, but his being named as seigneur after his supposed father suggests that this affiliation is correct.  Seigneur de ChâtillonWalcherus de Castellione et Wermundus et Dudo capallanus et Bernericus de Castro-Theoderici” witnessed the undated charter under which “abbas S. Remigii Henricus” granted “societatem et fraternitatem ecclesie S. Remigii” to Etienne Comte de Blois[652].]

a)         GUERMOND (-after 1137).  Seigneur de Savigny.  Avoué de Rumigny.  A charter dated 1137 records an agreement between "Guermundus de Castellione advocatus Ruminiaci...uxor mea Hadvidis" and Compiègne Saint-Corneille concerning the avouerie of Rumigny, witnessed by "Milites, Witerus Registensis comes, Henricus comes de Grandiprato, Drogo de Petrefonte, Gualcherius de Castellione, Matheus de Montemorencii..."[656]m HADWIDE, daughter of --- (-after 1137).  A charter dated 1137 records an agreement between "Guermundus de Castellione advocatus Ruminiaci...uxor mea Hadvidis" and Compiègne Saint-Corneille concerning the avouerie of Rumigny[657]Guermond & his wife had three children:
