Chapter 1.    CLERMONT [en-BEAUVAISIS]

 

 

Lépinois suggests that, in the early 11th century, Clermont was a fief of the county of Beauvais[1].  He points out that there was never a pagus of this name and also that the county does not correspond geographically with any of the local ecclesiastical jurisdictional entities.  It is therefore difficult to define precisely the boundaries of the medieval county of Clermont.  It appears that Clermont became a county unofficially when Renaud Seigneur de Clermont assumed the title count on his marriage to Adelais Ctss de Vermandois in 1103 and that the elevation in status was generally recognised.  On the death in 1218 of Thibaut VI Comte de Blois, son of Catherine Ctss de Clermont, the county of Clermont [en-Beauvaisis] was sold to the French crown[2]

 

 

A.      ORIGINS

 

 

1.         RENAUD [I] (-before 1047).  He is named in the charter of his son dated 25 Dec 1047 (see below).  m ---.  The name of Renaud’s wife is not known.  Renaud & his wife had three children: 

a)         HUGUES [I] (-after 3 Mar 1057).  "Hugo" donated property in "villis…Villana, Villereisium…Curtis et Brochis" to Saint-Médard de Soissons, for the souls of "patris sui…Rainoldi…et fratris sui…Alberti", by charter dated 25 Dec 1047[3].  "…Hugonis pincernæ regum, Balduini fratris eiusdem…Valterii pincernæ regis…" witnessed the charter dated 3 Mar 1057 under which Henri I King of France donated property to Notre-Dame de Soissons[4]

i)          GAUTHIER (-after 1069).  "…Hugonis pincernæ regum, Balduini fratris eiusdem…Valterii pincernæ regis…" witnessed the charter dated 3 Mar 1057 under which Henri I King of France donated property to Notre-Dame de Soissons[5]"Miles…Gualterus filius Hugonis pincerne regis" settled a dispute with Saint-Riquier concerning "la terre de Feuquières-en-Vimeu" by charter dated 29 Aug 1062[6]

-         see below

ii)         [RENAUD [II] (-after 1058).  According to Depoin, Renaud was the son of Hugues pincerna, but he does not cite the corresponding primary source[7].  His hypothesis may be based solely on the charter dated 1067 under which his son "Hugues fils de Renaud" consented to the donation of "la moitié de la terre de Rungis" by "son cousin le chambrier Galeran" to Paris Saint-Martin-des-Champs[8]"…Ragenaldi camerarii…" witnessed the charter dated 17 Apr 1048 under which Henri I King of France donated "fiscum…Uni-Gradus" to Chartres Notre-Dame[9]"Rainaldus…senioris camerarius" renounced rights relating to "Villare" in favour of Fécamp by undated charter, dated to before 1060, witnessed by "Hugo filius meus cum uxore sua et uxor mea Ermentrudis…"[10].]

b)         ALBERT (-before 25 Dec 1047).  "Hugo" donated property in "villis…Villana, Villereisium…Curtis et Brochis" to Saint-Médard de Soissons, for the souls of "patris sui…Rainoldi…et fratris sui…Alberti", by charter dated 25 Dec 1047[11]

c)         BAUDOUIN (-after 3 Mar 1057).  "…Hugonis pincernæ regum, Balduini fratris eiusdem…Valterii pincernæ regis…" witnessed the charter dated 3 Mar 1057 under which Henri I King of France donated property to Notre-Dame de Soissons[12]

 

 

RENAUD [II], son of [HUGUES [I] & his wife ---] (-after 1058).  According to Depoin, Renaud was the son of Hugues pincerna, but he does not cite the corresponding primary source[13].  His hypothesis may be based solely on the charter dated 1067 under which his son "Hugues fils de Renaud" consented to the donation of "la moitié de la terre de Rungis" by "son cousin le chambrier Galeran" to Paris Saint-Martin-des-Champs[14]"…Ragenaldi camerarii…" witnessed the charter dated 17 Apr 1048 under which Henri I King of France donated "fiscum…Uni-Gradus" to Chartres Notre-Dame[15]"Rainaldus…senioris camerarius" renounced rights relating to "Villare" in favour of Fécamp by undated charter, dated to before 1060, witnessed by "Hugo filius meus cum uxore sua et uxor mea Ermentrudis…"[16].] 

m ERMENTRUDE, daughter of ---.  "Rainaldus…senioris camerarius" renounced rights relating to "Villare" in favour of Fécamp by undated charter, dated to before 1060, witnessed by "Hugo filius meus cum uxore sua et uxor mea Ermentrudis…"[17]

Renaud [II] & his wife had one child: 

1.         HUGUES [II] de Creil (-after Nov 1099).  Joint holder of the castle of Creil: an undated charter names "Hugo Rainaldi camerarii filius, regis beneficio Credulii dominus" and "[Galerannus] ipsi Hugoni et consanguinitate et eiusdem castelli participatione conjunctus"[18].  "Hugo filius Reginaldi camerarii" donated "tributum navium…per Cretellum transeuntium" to Fécamp by undated charter, witnessed by "Haimericus de Haurecey nepos Hugonis…"[19].  "Rainaldus…senioris camerarius" renounced rights relating to "Villare" in favour of Fécamp by undated charter, dated to before 1060, witnessed by "Hugo filius meus cum uxore sua et uxor mea Ermentrudis…"[20].  "Hugues fils de Renaud" consented to the donation of "la moitié de la terre de Rungis" by "son cousin le chambrier Galeran" to Paris Saint-Martin-des-Champs by charter dated 1067[21]An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[22].  Seigneur de Mouchy: "…Hugo de Montiaco" witnessed the charter dated to [before 1092] under which "Radulphus de Basincourt et Helvidis uxor eius…" donated property "juxta Manusdivillam" to Pontoise Saint Martin[23].  Seigneur de Clermont: "Hugo Clarimontis dns" confirmed his donations to the church of Saint-Germer-de-Flay, with the consent of "filiis meis Rainaldo et Guidone", by charter dated to before Nov 1099[24]m (before 1060) MARGUERITE de Ramerupt, daughter of HILDUIN [IV] de Montdidier et de Ramerupt Comte de Roucy & his wife Adelaide de Roucy.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Margareta" as third daughter of Hilduin Comte de Roucy and names her husband "comiti Hugonis de Claromonte Baluacensi"[25]The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "secundam filiam comitis Helduini de Rameruth dictam Margaretam" as wife of "Hugo comes de Claro-monte"[26].  Her marriage date is estimated from the undated charter, dated to before 1060, under which "Rainaldus…senioris camerarius" renounced rights relating to "Villare" in favour of Fécamp, witnessed by "Hugo filius meus cum uxore sua et uxor mea Ermentrudis…"[27]An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[28].  Hugues & his wife had eight children: 

a)         RENAUD [III] de Clermont (-before 1162).  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guido dictus Qui-non-dormit et Hugo Pauper et comes Rainaldus et sorores eorum" as children of "Hugo comes de Claro-monte" and his wife Marguerite[29]He assumed the title Comte de Clermont [en-Beauvaisis] after his marriage. 

-        see below

b)         GUY de Clermont (-Rouen 1119).  A manuscript entitled Genealogia regum Francorum tertiæ stirpis names "Guido dictus qui non dormit et Hugo pauper et comes Rainaldus" as the sons of "Hugo comes de Claromonte" and his wife "filiam…comitis Helduini de Rameruth…Margaretam"[30]"Hugo Clarimontis dns" confirmed his donations to the church of Saint-Germer-de-Flay, with the consent of "filiis meis Rainaldo et Guidone", by charter dated to before Nov 1099[31].  Orderic Vitalis records that "Guido de Claromonte" was captured at Rouen and died in jail[32]

c)         HUGUES de Clermont (-after 17 Nov 1099).  A manuscript entitled Genealogia regum Francorum tertiæ stirpis names "Guido dictus qui non dormit et Hugo pauper et comes Rainaldus" as the sons of "Hugo comes de Claromonte" and his wife "filiam…comitis Helduini de Rameruth…Margaretam"[33]

d)         ERMENTRUDE de Clermont (-after 13 May 1106)Orderic Vitalis records that “Hugonis de Abrincis filio Ricardi cognomento Goz” married “Ermentrudem filiam Hugonis de Claromonte Belvacensi[34]The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis refers to a sister of "comes Rainaldus" as husband of "comiti Hugoni de Cestre"[35].  “Ricardus Cestrensis comes et Ermentrudis comitissa mater eius” confirmed donations to Abingdon by charter dated 13 May 1106[36]m (before 1093) [as his second wife,] HUGUES d'Avranches Earl of Chester, son of RICHARD Le Goz & his wife --- ([1047]-St Werburg's Abbey, Chester 27 Jul 1101). 

e)         ADELISA de Clermont .  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis refers to a sister of "comes Rainaldus" as husband of "Gillebertus, filius Richardi Anglici"[37].  Guillaume of Jumièges records that “Giselbertus” married “filia comitis de Claromonte[38].  "Hadalaidis filia Hugonis de Claromonte…uxor Gisleberti de Anglia" founded an anniversary at Saint-Leu d’Esserent, like the anniversaries of "patris sui Hugonis et matris sue Margarite", by undated charter[39].  Her second marriage into the Montmorency family is confirmed by the charter dated under which Robert Bishop of Lincoln confirms previous donations to Thorney, including one by “Adelidæ de Montemoraci” of “…terræ in Randa quas Turgisius tenuit et Toui prius dederat[40], which clearly refers back to the earlier undated charter under which “Adeliz, uxor Gilberti filii Ricardi, et Gillebertus et Walterus et Baldewinus et Rohaisia pueri Gilberti” donated property “quod Tovi dedit…et in Randa…quas Turgisius tenebat” to Thorney Monastery[41].  The precise identity of Adelisa’s second husband has not yet been confirmed.  According to Duchesne, Adelisa’s second husband was Hervé, son of Bouchard [III] Seigneur de Montmorency and his second wife, but he cites no primary source on which this statement is based[42].  As noted below, the first marriage of Mathieu [I] de Montmorency, who would have been Hervé’s older half-brother born from their father’s first marriage, is dated to [1126].  This suggests the birth of Mathieu [I] in [1095/1105].  If that estimated date range is correct, any half-brothers born from his father’s second marriage would probably have been too young to have married Adelisa.  In addition, given Adelisa’s prominent family background and first marriage, it is unlikely that her second husband would have been the younger son of the seigneur de Montmorency.  As Adelisa had several children by her first husband, she would have been considerably older than her second husband if he had been a younger son of Bouchard [III].  A more likely case is that Adelisa’s second husband was Bouchard [III] himself, whose age and position would have been more appropriate for the marriage.  This is supported by the Liber Vitæ of Thorney abbey which lists "…Gilebt fili[us] Ricardi…Burchardus de Muntmorenci…Aaliz uxor Gilbti filii Ricardi…", suggested by Keats-Rohan as Adelisa and her two husbands[43]m firstly [as his second wife,] GILBERT FitzRichard de Clare, son of RICHARD de Brionne Lord of Clare and Tonbridge [Normandy] & his wife Rohese Giffard (-1114 or 1117).  m secondly (after [1114/17]) [as his third wife, BOUCHARD [III] Seigneur] de Montmorency, son of [HERVE Seigneur de Montmorency & his wife Agnes --- (-Jerusalem 2 Jan, after 1124)]

f)          MARGUERITE de Clermont (-[1136])"Margarita de Gerboreio, filia Hugonis de Claromonte", on her deathbed, summoned “Gerardum maritum suum” to donate property to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "Rainaldus comes frater domne Margarite…et Petrus filius Gerardi et Beatrix uxor Oddonis de Angivillari", by charter dated to [1136][44].  A charter which confirms donations to the abbey of Saint-Paul-en-Beauvaisis includes the donation of “sextam partem decimæ de Curleio” made by “Margaretæ vicedominæ de Gerberedo[45]m GERARD de Gerberoy, son of --- (-after 1136). 

g)         RICHILDE de Clermont .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  Dame de Mouchy.  Depoin states that the Histoire de Vézelay, by Hugues le Poitevin, names “Dreux de Mello...et...Richeud, fille de Hugues de Mouchy, sœur de Renaud II de Clermont et de Félicie reine d’Aragon” as the parents of Guillaume abbé de Vézelay[46].  However, the passage in question has not been found in the edition of the Histoire which was consulted during the preparation of the present document.  A charter which confirms donations to the abbey of Saint-Paul-en-Beauvaisis includes the donation of “medietatem altaris de Camberonne” made by “Richeldis de Merloto” and of “aliam medietatem” by “Berneri de Claromonte” (the latter not yet having been identified, although his name and joint ownership of the property in question suggests a relationship between Richilde and the Clermont family)[47]m (before 1101) DREUX [I] Seigneur de Mello, son of GILBERT [I] de Mello & his wife --- (-after [1117/18]). 

h)         BEATRIX de Clermont (-after 1110).  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis refers to a sister of "comes Rainaldus" as wife of "Matheus comes de Bello-monte, de qua genuit alterum Matheum comitem et fratrem eius et filias"[48]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to, but does not name, one of the sisters of "comitem Rainaldum" as "comites Bellimonti"[49].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.  Dame de ½ Luzarches.  m (before 1101) MATHIEU [I] Comte de Beaumont, son of IVES [II] Comte de Beaumont & his second wife Adelais --- (-1 Jan 1155). 

 

 

GAUTHIER, son of HUGUES [I] & his wife --- (-after 1069).  "…Hugonis pincernæ regum, Balduini fratris eiusdem…Valterii pincernæ regis…" witnessed the charter dated 3 Mar 1057 under which Henri I King of France donated property to Notre-Dame de Soissons[50]"Miles…Gualterus filius Hugonis pincerne regis" settled a dispute with Saint-Riquier concerning "la terre de Feuquières-en-Vimeu" by charter dated 29 Aug 1062[51]

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

Gauthier & his wife had five children: 

1.         GALERAN (-1108 or after).  Philippe I King of France confirmed donations made to the abbey of Saint-Christophe en Halatte by “miles...Walerannus...unacum fratribus suis...Waltero archidiacono et Hugone necnon Balduino atque Rainaldo”, and by “Walterus pater suus”, by charter dated 30 Apr 1061[52].  “Heddo Suessionensium episcopus et Elinandus Laudunensium præsul...Frollandus Silvanectensis episcopus, Gualerannus camerarius, Theobaldus de Crispiaco, Nivelo de Petræfonte” subscribed the charter dated 27 May 1061 under which Philippe I King of France privileges to “basilicam...martyris Adriani” founded by “Richardus Bistisiacensis castellanus miles” [Béthisy], with the consent of “uxore sua Millesinde et filiis” and confirmed donations including by “Hugo...Ricardi filius[53]"Hugues fils de Renaud" consented to the donation of "la moitié de la terre de Rungis" by "son cousin le chambrier Galeran" to Paris Saint-Martin-des-Champs by charter dated 1067[54]m as her second husband, HAVISE [de Broyes, widow of RENAUD du Puy-du-Fou, daughter of HUGUES [I] "Bardoul" Seigneur de Broyes & his [first wife ---]].  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[55].  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[56].  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. 

2.         GAUTHIER .  Philippe I King of France confirmed donations made to the abbey of Saint-Christophe en Halatte by “miles...Walerannus...unacum fratribus suis...Waltero archidiacono et Hugone necnon Balduino atque Rainaldo”, and by “Walterus pater suus”, by charter dated 30 Apr 1061[57]

3.         HUGUES .  Philippe I King of France confirmed donations made to the abbey of Saint-Christophe en Halatte by “miles...Walerannus...unacum fratribus suis...Waltero archidiacono et Hugone necnon Balduino atque Rainaldo”, and by “Walterus pater suus”, by charter dated 30 Apr 1061[58]

4.         BAUDOUIN .  Philippe I King of France confirmed donations made to the abbey of Saint-Christophe en Halatte by “miles...Walerannus...unacum fratribus suis...Waltero archidiacono et Hugone necnon Balduino atque Rainaldo”, and by “Walterus pater suus”, by charter dated 30 Apr 1061[59]

5.         RENAUD .  Philippe I King of France confirmed donations made to the abbey of Saint-Christophe en Halatte by “miles...Walerannus...unacum fratribus suis...Waltero archidiacono et Hugone necnon Balduino atque Rainaldo”, and by “Walterus pater suus”, by charter dated 30 Apr 1061[60]

 

 

 

B.      COMTES de CLERMONT[-en-BEAUVAISIS]

 

 

 

RENAUD [III] de Clermont, son of HUGUES [II] de Creil & his wife Marguerite de Ramerupt (-[1152/53]).  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guido dictus Qui-non-dormit et Hugo Pauper et comes Rainaldus et sorores eorum" as children of "Hugo comes de Claro-monte" and his wife Marguerite[61]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Rainaldum" as son of "comiti Hugonis de Claromonte Baluacensi" and his wife Marguerite[62].  Albert of Aix names "…Reinoldus de civitate Belvatiæ…" among those who took part in the siege of Nikaia, dated to mid-1097 from the context[63].  Albert of Aix records that "…Reinaldus de Belvacio…" fought against the Turks at Dorylæum (1 Jul 1097)[64].  "Hugo Clarimontis dns" confirmed his donations to the church of Saint-Germer-de-Flay, with the consent of "filiis meis Rainaldo et Guidone", by charter dated to before Nov 1099[65]He assumed the title Comte de Clermont [en-Beauvaisis] after his first marriage[66].  [“Radulfus Oysardi filius” donated property at Creil to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, and the nuns obtained the consent of "comitem Rainaldum Claromontensem…uxor eius Clementia, filia…ipsius Margarita", by charter dated to [1119][67].  The dating of this document is problematic: while the presence of Marguerite suggests that she was still unmarried, the date is inconsistent with the estimated birth date of Clémence.  It should be noted that Mathon dates the consent given by Comte Renaud to [1153], although he does not state why he says this[68].  If that dating is correct, the witness would have been Renaud’s daughter Marguerite by his second marriage, although it is unclear why she would have been singled out for giving consent without her brothers and sisters.]  A charter dated 1144 confirmed a donation by "Rainaldus Claromontensis comes" to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "Clementia uxor prædicti comitis cum filio suo Guidone"[69].  An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[70].  "Rainaldus comes de Claromonte et Clemencia uxor eius et Widdo eorum filius" confirmed donations to Saint-Leu d’Esserant made by "Albericus…Paganus…comites de Donno Martino…pater suus Hugo de Claromonte et Margarita uxor eius et comites Cestrences Hugo et Richardus", on the advice of "uxoris meæ Adæ", by charter dated 1152[71].  Louvet notes a donation to the priory of Gournay-sur-Aronde made by “Rainal Comte de Clermont et Clemence sa femme” which was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse[72].  The charter dated 1153 which records the donation made by his wife and children suggests that Renaud was already dead at that time. 

m firstly (1103) ADELAIS Ctss de Vermandois, de Valois et de Crépy, widow of HUGUES de France Comte de Vermandois, daughter and heiress of HERIBERT [VI] Comte de Vermandois & his wife Adelais de Valois ([1065]-28 Sep [1120/24]).  The De Genere Comitum Flandrensium, Notæ Parisienses names "Odonem et Adelam sororem" as the two children of "comes Herbertus", specifying that the husband of Adela was "Hugoni le Magne" and referring to her second husband "comes de Claromonte", specifying that her daughter by the latter married Charles Count of Flanders[73]The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Adelidem comitissam Viromandensium, defuncto priore viro, scilicet Hugone Magno" as wife of "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]"[74]

m secondly ([1135]) [as her second husband,] CLEMENCE de Bar, [widow of --- Comte de Dammartin,] daughter of RENAUD I Comte de Bar & his wife Gisèle de Vaudémont ([1123/27]-after 20 Jan 1182).  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis records that "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" married "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns"[75].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to "comites de Claromonte Belvacensi" as descended from "una…sorore eiusdem comitis [=comes Barri iunior Raynaldus]"[76].  Her birth date range is estimated based on the date of her parents' marriage.  Renaud’s second wife would presumably have held the title “Ctss de Dammartin” through an earlier marriage to a comte de Dammartin.  If she had been the daughter of a comte de Dammartin, she would not have borne the comital title.  [“Radulfus Oysardi filius” donated property at Creil to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, and the nuns obtained the consent of "comitem Rainaldum Claromontensem…uxor eius Clementia, filia…ipsius Margarita", by charter dated to [1119][77].  The dating of this document is problematic: while the presence of Marguerite suggests that she was still unmarried, the date is inconsistent with the estimated birth date of Clémence.  It should be noted that Mathon dates the consent given by Comte Renaud to [1153], although he does not state why he says this[78].  If that dating is correct, the witness would have been Renaud’s daughter Marguerite by his second marriage, although it is unclear why she would have been singled out for giving consent without her brothers and sisters.]  Louis VII King of France confirmed what “episcopus Parisiensis et Guillelmus Lupus frater eius et comes Damni-Martini Renaudus cum uxore sua” donated to Chaalis “per concessum Adelizæ de Bulis et filiorum eius Lancelini...et fratrum suorum” and the donation of land “apud Hermenovillam et...moriens juxta Villam-novam” made by “Joscelinus de Damno-Martino”, by charter dated 1138[79].  The property the subject of the first-named donation is not specified in the charter.  However, a possibly linked charter dated to [1137] records that “Willelmus Lupus Silvanectensis” donated “locum...in quo situm est cœnobium...[et] usum totius Espioniæ et Beeley”, with the support of “uxore mea Adelvia, filioque meo majore...Guidone” and sealed by “fratris mei Stephani Parisiensis episc.[80].  The charter dated 1138 also provides a possible indication of Clémence’s family origin: the joint donation suggests a joint interest in the property donated, and so a connection with the family of the bouteillers de Senlis (to which Guillaume “le Loup” and his brother Etienne Bishop of Paris belonged).  A charter dated 1144 confirmed a donation by "Rainaldus Claromontensis comes" to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "Clementia uxor prædicti comitis cum filio suo Guidone"[81].  An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[82].  "Rainaldus comes de Claromonte et Clemencia uxor eius et Widdo eorum filius" confirmed donations to Saint-Leu d’Esserant made by "Albericus…Paganus…comites de Donno Martino…pater suus Hugo de Claromonte et Margarita uxor eius et comites Cestrences Hugo et Richardus", on the advice of "uxoris meæ Adæ", by charter dated 1152[83].  Louvet notes a donation to the priory of Gournay-sur-Aronde made by “Rainal Comte de Clermont et Clemence sa femme” which was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse[84].  Louis VII King of France confirmed an agreement between Eudes Prior of Saint-Denis and "Donni Martini comitissam Clementiam" who relinquished rights “in Trenbleio” by charter dated 1153[85].  Mathieu quotes a charter of Manassès Bishop of Meaux, dated to [1157], which records property first donated to Chaalis by “Domnimartini comitissa Clementia, laudante viro suo Renaldo de Clarimonte” as well as her donation of rights of way and use of wood “in omnia terra” belonging to “consulatum Domnimartini[86]Clementia comitissa de Domno Martino cum liberis meis” renounced rights over “villa Trembliaco” after disputes between the abbey of Saint-Denis and “antecessores nostros comites de Dompno Martino”, litigated before “regis Ludovici”, by undated charter (dated to [1153/62]), witnessed by “Ansoldus de Claromonte et Petrus nepos eius, Galterus de Alneto...[87].  [She married [thirdly] Thibaut [III] de Crépy Seigneur de Nanteuil-le-Hardouin.  Duchesne states that Thibaut [III] de Nanteuil married “Clemence veuve de Renaut Comte de Clairmont en Beauvoisin” by whom he had three children, but does not cite the corresponding primary source[88].  The primary source which confirms this third marriage has not been identified, and from a chronological point of view it appears unlikely to be correct particularly as she is supposed to have had children by her third husband.]   

Comte Renaud & his first wife had two children: 

1.         MARGUERITE de Clermont ([1104/05]-after 1145).  [“Radulfus Oysardi filius” donated property at Creil to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, and the nuns obtained the consent of "comitem Rainaldum Claromontensem…uxor eius Clementia, filia…ipsius Margarita", by charter dated to [1119][89].  The dating of this document is problematic: while the presence of Marguerite suggests that she was still unmarried, the date is inconsistent with the estimated birth date of Clémence.  It should be noted that Mathon dates the consent given by Comte Renaud to [1153], although he does not state why he says this[90].  If that dating is correct, the witness would have been Renaud’s daughter Marguerite by his second marriage, although it is unclear why she would have been singled out for giving consent without her brothers and sisters.]  The Vita Karoli Comitis Flandriæ names "nobilem puellam Margaretam, Reinaldi comitis Clarmontensis filiam" as wife of Count Charles, specifying that the marriage took place before his accession[91]The De Genere Comitum Flandrensium, Notæ Parisienses refers to (but does not name) the daughter of "comes de Claromonte" and his wife Adela, specifying that she married firstly Charles Count of Flanders, secondly "Hugo Champdaveine…comes Sancti Pauli" by whom she had "Radulfus Champdaveine et Guod Champdaveine", and thirdly "dominus Balduinus de Encra" by whom she had "domini Galteri de Helli"[92]The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis refers to, but does not name, the daughter of "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" & his wife Adelaide as wife of "comes Karolus Flandre"[93].  It is assumed that Marguerite was born soon after her parents' marriage as her mother was already nearly 40 years old at the time.  m firstly (before Jul 1119) CARL of Denmark, son of KNUD II "den Hellige/the Holy" King of Denmark & his wife Adela de Flandre ([1084]-murdered Bruges 2 Mar 1127, bur Bruges, St Donatien, later Saint-Sauveur).  He succeeded in 1119 as CHARLES "the Good" Count of Flandersm secondly ([1128]) as his second wife, HUGUES [III] “Candavène” Comte de Saint-Pol, son of HUGUES [II] Comte de Saint-Pol & his wife Helissende de Ponthieu (-after 1145).  m thirdly BAUDOUIN d’Encre, son of ---. 

2.         RAOUL de Clermont .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  1119. 

Comte Renaud & his second wife had ten children

3.         GUY de Clermont (-after 1152).  The presence of Guy, without his brothers, in the charter dated 1144 quoted below, suggests that he was his father’s oldest surviving son at the time.  This suggestion appears corroborated by the order of the names of Renaud’s sons in the following source.  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem et Rainaldum et Hugonem archidiaconum Metensem et Galterum cum aliis utriusque sexus" as children of "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" and his wife "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns"[94].  A charter dated 1144 confirmed a donation by "Rainaldus Claromontensis comes" to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "Clementia uxor prædicti comitis cum filio suo Guidone"[95].  An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[96].  "Rainaldus comes de Claromonte et Clemencia uxor eius et Widdo eorum filius" confirmed donations to Saint-Leu d’Esserant made by "Albericus…Paganus…comites de Donno Martino…pater suus Hugo de Claromonte et Margarita uxor eius et comites Cestrences Hugo et Richardus", on the advice of "uxoris meæ Adæ", by charter dated 1152[97]

4.         RAOUL "le Roux" de Clermont ([before 1140]-killed in battle Acre 15 Oct 1191).  It should be noted that the Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem et Rainaldum et Hugonem archidiaconum Metensem et Galterum cum aliis utriusque sexus" as children of "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" and his wife "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns" but makes no mention of Raoul[98], although other sources quoted below confirm his parentage.  The chronology of his life suggests the unlikelihood that he was born later than [1140].  Comte de Clermont.  "Radulfus…comes Clarimontis" donated property to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp with the consent of "Adelidis uxor mea et Matildis soror mea…fratris mei Symon et Stephanus" by charter dated 1162,

was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse[100].  Mathon says that Raoul, still childless, made this supplementary donation in 1165 in the hope of the birth of an heir[101].  "R…comes Clarimontis et dominus Brituliensis…et Aeliz comitissam uxorem meam" confirmed the donation to the church of Breteuil by "Sangalo de Garda Malgerii, Henricus filius eius" by undated charter, witnessed by "Albericus Domni Martini comes et Mahaux soror mea, Domni Martini comitissa, Rainaldus castellanus Britulii…"[102].  “Radulfus comes Clarimontis” donated rights “in molendino de Levrel” to Jumièges by charter dated [5 Apr 1170/27 Mar 1171], subscribed by “Symone fratre comitis...[103].

meorum qui in monasterio…sepulti sunt", with the consent of "fratribus meis Hugone primicerio Metensis ecclesiæ…ecclesiæ de Credulio abate, et Simone milite fratre meo et dominum meum Radulfum abbatem

filio que meo Philippo et Katarina filia mee" by charter dated 1182[108]"Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[109].  The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Radulphus comes Clarimontis" among those who died in Palestine in [1191], presumably at the siege of Acre[110]m (before 1162) ALIX de Breteuil, daughter of VALERAN [III] Seigneur de Breteuil-en-Beauvaisis & his first wife Holdeburge dame d'Ailly-sur-Noye et de Tartigny (-after [1196/97], bur Variville).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitissam Clarimontis Belvacensis et uxorem Symonis Clarimontis et Emiciam" as the three daughters of "Alaydis [filia comitem de Brana Robertum domnum]" & her first husband[111], although it appears chronologically impossible for Alix, wife of Raoul Comte de Clermont, to have been the daughter of Valeran [III] by his second wife.  The correct parentage of Alix and her sister Mathilde is confirmed by the charter dated 1153 which records that “Galerannum de Britoglio” donated property at Champmartin at Rueil-sur-Bèche to Froidmont abbey, with the consent of “Hugone fratre suo...et Holdeburge uxore Galeranni, Aalsi et Mathilde filiabus eius[112].  Lépinois dates her marriage to [1153/55], but this appears to be little more than guesswork[113]"Adelidis uxor …" consented to the donation by "Radulfus…comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of

"Radulphus de Ailli nepos meus…Manasses de Conti…" and confirmed another donation by "Hugo de Crepicordio frater patris mei Galeranni" for the soul of "Petronille filie sue" and confirmed after his death by "Heverardus eius filius successor et heres"[121]Comte Raoul & his wife had four children: 

a)         CATHERINE de Clermont (after 1165-19/20 Sep [1212/23])Radulfus...comes Clarimontis et dominus Britolii” reached agreement with Lannoy abbey over “feodis meis in Montania”, with the consent of “uxore mea comitissa Aeliza et filia mea Katerina et fratre meo Symone cum uxore sua Matilde”, by charter dated 1174[122].  "Radulphus…comes Clarimontis" donated harvest from property "apud Credulium" to Paris Hôtel-Dieu, with the consent of "uxore mea comitissa Aaliz et filiabus meis…Catalina et Aaliz", by charter dated 1177[123]"…Filiarum mearum Katerine et Adelidis" consented to two donations by "Radulfus comes Claromonensis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charters dated 1178[124].  "…Filio que meo Philippo et Katarina filia mee" consented to the donation by "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1182[125]"Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[126].  "Catharina uxore…" consented to the donation by "Louis C. de Blois et de Clermont" to the abbey of l'Etoile by charter dated 1190[127].  She succeeded as Ctss de Clermont in 1192.  "Katerina uxore mea…" consented to the donation by "Ludovicus comes Blesensis et Clarimontis" to Hôtel-Dieu, Châteaudun by charter dated 27 Jan 1196[128].  "Katherina uxore mea…" consented to the confirmation by "Ludovicus Blesensis et Clarimontis comes" of the donation by "Gaufridus vicecomes Castriduni" to Hôtel-Dieu, Châteaudun by charter dated Mar 1200[129]"Katerina Blesensis et Claromontensis comitisse" consented to a donation to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1202[130]"Katherina uxore mea…" consented to the donation by "Ludovicus Blesensis et Clarimontis comes…Iherosolimam proficiscens" to Hôtel-Dieu, Châteadun by charter dated May 1202[131].  "Katelina Blesis et Clarimuntis comitissa" took "villam Ceresium" into her protection by charter dated 1206 which names "Theobaldus comes felicis memorie et eius filius comes Ludovicus dominus meus"[132]The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "XII Kal Oct" of "Katerina…comitissa Blesensis et Clarimontis", also naming "viro suo…comite Ludovico…Theobaldus comes filius suus"[133]m (1184) LOUIS de Blois, son of THIBAUT V "le Bon" Comte de Blois & his second wife Alix de France (-killed in battle near Adrianople 15 Apr 1205).  He succeeded in 1191 as Comte de Blois.

c)         MATHILDE de Clermont (-1200 or after)"Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[136]The primary source which confirms her marriage has not been identified.  m GUILLAUME [I] Seigneur de Vierzon, son of HERVE [I] Seigneur de Vierzon & his wife Eléonore de la Ferté-Imbaud (-1197). 

d)         PHILIPPE de Clermont ([after 1178]-[1182/92]).  He was presumably born after 1178 as, unlike his two older sisters, he is not named in the charter of that date which is quoted above.  "…Filio que meo Philippo et Katarina filia mee" consented to the donation by "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1182[137]He presumably predeceased his father. 

5.         MARGUERITE de Clermont (-29 Oct [1187]).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated May 1218 under which [her son] Gui le bouteiller chevalier” relinquished his rights over the county of Clermont in favour of the king[138].  [“Radulfus Oysardi filius” donated property at Creil to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, and the nuns obtained the consent of "comitem Rainaldum Claromontensem…uxor eius Clementia, filia…ipsius Margarita", by charter dated to [1119][139].  The dating of this document is problematic: while the presence of Marguerite suggests that she was still unmarried, the date is inconsistent with the estimated birth date of Clémence.  It should be noted that Mathon dates the consent given by Comte Renaud to [1153], although he does not state why he says this[140].  If that dating is correct, the witness would have been Renaud’s daughter Marguerite by his second marriage, although it is unclear why she would have been singled out for giving consent without her brothers and sisters.]  Louvet notes a donation to the priory of Gournay-sur-Aronde made by “Rainal Comte de Clermont et Clemence sa femme” which was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse[141].  "Henricus...Silvanect...episcopus" confirmed the donation of “decimam...in...nemoris de Braisilva” made to Saint-Nicolas d’Acy by “dominus Guido buticularius”, with the consent of “conjugis suæ Margaritæ et filiorum suorum Guidonis primogeniti et Willelmi junioris”, by charter dated 1171[142]Dame de Luzarches.  "Guido Ludovici…regis Francie buticularius" donated property to Chaalis, with the consent of "uxoris mee Margarite et filiorum meorum Guidonis, Willelmi, Rainaldi, Nivelonis et filie mee Adeline", by charter dated 1180[143]m ([1 Aug 1154/26 Mar 1155]) GUY [III] de Senlis Seigneur de Chantilly et d'Ermenonville, son of GUILLAUME [I] "le Loup" Seigneur de Chantilly & his wife Adeline --- (-10 Oct 1188).  Bouteiller de France.

7.         ETIENNE de Clermont (-[1162/65]).  "…Fratris mei Symon et Stephanus" consented to the donation by "Radulfus…comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1162[145].  The primary source which confirms the identity of Etienne's mother has not been identified.  Etienne's absence, together with Raoul and Simon, from the list of Comte Renaud's sons by his wife Clémence de Bar in the Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis (see above) suggests that the two groups of brothers may have been born from different marriages, although the issue is not without doubt[146].  This hypothesis may be corroborated by Simon and Etienne, and their sister Mathilde, subscribing Raoul's 1162 charter, without any of the other named [half-]brothers.  His absence from the donation dated 1165 which names his brothers suggests that Etienne had died by then. 

8.         RENAUD de Clermont .  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem et Rainaldum et Hugonem archidiaconum Metensem et Galterum cum aliis utriusque sexus" as children of "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" and his wife "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns"[147].  An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[148]

9.         HUGUES de Clermont (-28 May 1200).  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem et Rainaldum et Hugonem archidiaconum Metensem et Galterum cum aliis utriusque sexus" as children of "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" and his wife "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns"[149]Primicerius at Metz 1164/70.  He was elected Bishop of Metz 1171.  Abbot of Creil.  "Radulfus…comes Claromontensis" donated the church of Saint-Evremond de Creil to the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "fratribus meis Hugone primicerio Metensis ecclesiæ…ecclesiæ de Credulio abate, et Simone milite fratre meo…", by charter dated 24 Feb 1176[150]Provost of Saint-Sauveur at Metz.  Canon at Toul.  Archdeacon at Ligny 1186.  "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[151]

SIMON de Clermont, son of RENAUD Comte de Clermont-en-Beauvaisis & his second wife Clémence de Bar (-1187 or after).  "…Fratris mei Symon et Stephanus" consented to the donation by "Radulfus…comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1162[160].  The primary source which confirms the identity of Simon's mother has not been identified.  Simon's absence, together with Raoul and Etienne, from the list of Comte Renaud's sons by his wife Clémence de Bar in the Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis (see above) suggests that the two groups of brothers may have been born from different marriages, although the issue is not without doubt [161].  This hypothesis may be corroborated by Simon and Etienne, and their sister Mathilde, subscribing Raoul's 1162 charter, without any of the other named [half-]brothers.  Louvet notes a donation to the priory of Gournay-sur-Aronde made by “Rainal Comte de Clermont et Clemence sa femme” which was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse[162].  “Radulfus comes Clarimontis” donated rights “in molendino de Levrel” to Jumièges by charter dated [5 Apr 1170/27 Mar 1171], subscribed by “Symone fratre comitis...[163].  “Radulfus...comes Clarimontis et dominus Britolii” reached agreement with Lannoy abbey over “feodis meis in Montania”, with the consent of “uxore mea comitissa Aeliza et filia mea Katerina et fratre meo Symone cum uxore sua Matilde”, by charter dated 1174[164].  "Radulfus…comes Claromontensis" donated the church of Saint-Evremond de Creil to the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "fratribus meis Hugone primicerio Metensis ecclesiæ…ecclesiæ de Credulio abate, et Simone milite fratre meo…", by charter dated 24 Feb 1176[165]"Symonis fratris mei, Petri Ambianensis nepotis mei" subscribed the charter dated 1178 under which "Radulfus comes Claromonensis" donated property to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp[166].  Seigneur d'Ailly-sur-Noye.  "Dnus Symon de Alliaco" donated property to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "Matildis uxor eius et filii eius Radulfus et Guido et Dnus Robertus de Bova", by charter dated to before 1191, but received 1193, signed by "Rodulfus comes de Claromonte…"[167]

e)         RAOUL [II] de Clermont (-[after 1243]).  His parentage is indicated by the charter dated Apr 1243 under which [his cousin] Simon de Dargies miles dominus Britolii” confirmed donations of harvest “de prato in granchia de Tartigny” made to Beaupré by “dominus Radulfus de Claramonte quondam avunculus meus...cognatus meus Radulfus de Claromonte miles filius predicti domini Radulfi[186].  The wording of this document indicates that Raoul’s father was already dead at the time but that Raoul himself was still alive.

3.         [CLEMENCE (-[Nov 1226/1231]).  The doubts about the parentage of Clémence are discussed in detail in the introduction to the section of the present document which sets out the Seigneurs de Breteuil (Beausault).  The conclusion is that the more likely possibility is that she was the daughter of Simon de Clermont and his wife Mathilde de Breteuil, although the alternative possibility that Amicie de Breteuil, younger half-sister of Mathilde, was her mother cannot be excluded entirely.  “Symon de Belsat” donated harvest from “grangiam de Moncellis” to Lannoy, for the soul of “Symonis avunculi mei”, with the consent of “Clementie uxoris mee”, by charter dated to [1205][190].  “Symon de Bello Saltu” donated land “de Moncellis et villam de Feucheres” to Lannoy, for the souls of “mee et Clementie uxoris mee et Gaufridi filii mei”, with the consent of “Clementie uxoris mee et filiorum meorum Willermi et Symonis”, by charter dated 1216[191].  “Simon de Bellosaltu, Clementia uxor eius et Johenna de Argies” repurchased “terræ Britholii, de dicto rege moventis” for 3,000 Parisian pounds, with the exception of “pactionibus quas Amicia domina Britholii” had made “cum domino rege”, by charter dated Nov 1226[192].  Dame de Breteuil.  m SIMON de Beausault, son of --- (-after 28 Apr 1239).]

E.      SEIGNEURS de CONTY

 

 

The town of Conty is located fifty kilometres north-west of Clermont.  According to Lépinois, the medieval seigneurie of Conty was a fief of the county of Clermont, although it lay within the episcopal diocese of Amiens[340].  However, no sources have been identified which confirm this point.  It is possible that the seigneurie depended from the county of Amiens in the early years of its existence and transferred to Clermont at some later time.  Seigneurs de Conty are named in primary sources from the 11th century.  Reconstruction of the family presents great difficulties due to the repetition of the names Manassès, Jean and Robert in each generation.  In particular, in the following section seven individuals named Manassès de Conty have been identified.  It is highly likely that these persons can be grouped further and that maybe only three or four individuals of this name lived in the 12th and 13th centuries.  Some suggestions along these lines are indicated below.  However, on the basis of the information available in the primary sources which have been consulted, a regrouping which is satisfactory on all points has not proved possible.  The family was studied in the mid-19th century by Gabriel Rembault[341].  He cites numerous primary sources and in several places in his work suggests that his reconstruction of the Conty family represents an improvement on earlier studies.  That may be correct, but many of his assumptions are unsupported in light of the sources which are quoted below. 

 

The seigneurie de Conty passed to the Hamel family in the early 14th century, and to Colart de Mailly (fourth son of “Jean de Mailly et de Jeanne de Créseques, reçu sénéchal du Vermandois le 25 février 1425” from “la branche [de la maison de Mailly] des seigneurs de l’Orsignol[342]) on his marriage to Isabelle du Hamel in 1426[343]Père Anselme names Colart de Mailly as the fourth son of “Jean de Mailly dit Maillet seigneur de Saint-Huin, de Talmas, de Buires-aux-Bois” and his wife “Jeanne de Creseques fille de Guillaume de Creseques dit le Bon et de Mar d’Harcourt-Montgommery” (of the branch of the seigneurs de l’Orsignol) and specifies that his wife died childless in 1438 but bequeathed Conty by her testament to her husband who was succeeded by his brother Ferry de Mailly[344]Conty passed to Charles de Roye Comte de Roucy when he married Madeleine de Mailly, descendant of Ferry de Mailly, in 1528, and to Louis de Bourbon Prince de Condé on his marriage to Charlotte-Eléonore de Roye, daughter of Charles and Madeleine, in 1551[345]

 

 

1.         OGIER de Conty (-after 1034).  “...Ogeri de Conteio...” subscribed the charter dated 1034 under which "Theobaldus et Stephanus germanus meus...comites Francia et Ermengardis comitissa mater noster" confirmed property "in pago Ambianensi...Crisciacum" to the church of Amiens[346].  Rembault refers to Ogier as “le plus ancien seigneur de [Conty][347].  However, he is not called “dominus” in the source quoted, which appears to be the only one in which he is named.

 

 

Two brothers, parents not identified.  Manassès [I] and his family are named only in the source dated 8 Jan 1092 which is quoted below.  They bear the same names as the family of Manassès [IV], who is named in sources as seigneur de Conty in 1189 and 1190 (see below).  This may be coincidence, but it is possible that the 8 Jan 1092 source is misdated (maybe an error for 1192?) and that Manassès [I] did not exist as a separate person. 

1.         MANASSES [I] (-after 8 Jan 1092).  Seigneur de Conty.  “Manasserus Conteii dominus” donated property to Conty Saint-Antoine, for the soul of “Joannis fratris mei...defuncti”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Clementie et filiorum meorum Joannis et Manasseri”, by charter dated 8 Jan 1092[348]m CLEMENCE, daughter of --- (-after 8 Jan 1092).  “Manasserus Conteii dominus” donated property to Conty Saint-Antoine, for the soul of “Joannis fratris mei...defuncti”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Clementie et filiorum meorum Joannis et Manasseri”, by charter dated 8 Jan 1092[349].  Manassès [I] & his wife had two children: 

a)         JEAN de Conty .  “Manasserus Conteii dominus” donated property to Conty Saint-Antoine, for the soul of “Joannis fratris mei...defuncti”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Clementie et filiorum meorum Joannis et Manasseri”, by charter dated 8 Jan 1092[350]

b)         MANASSES [II] de Conty .  “Manasserus Conteii dominus” donated property to Conty Saint-Antoine, for the soul of “Joannis fratris mei...defuncti”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Clementie et filiorum meorum Joannis et Manasseri”, by charter dated 8 Jan 1092[351].  It appears to be possible, from a chronological point of view, that Manassès [II] was the same person as Manassès [III] who is shown below. 

2.         JEAN de Conty (-before 8 Jan 1092).  “Manasserus Conteii dominus” donated property to Conty Saint-Antoine, for the soul of “Joannis fratris mei...defuncti”, with the consent of “uxoris mee Clementie et filiorum meorum Joannis et Manasseri”, by charter dated 8 Jan 1092[352]

 

 

Two brothers, parents not identified: 

1.         MANASSES [III] de Conty (-after [1142]).  Seigneur de Conty.  “Manasses dominus Conteiensis” donated property “de vicecomitatu villarum de Dommeliers, de Dommorez, de Vaccaria, de Bonoculo, de Fontainis” to Amiens, in the presence of "Brituliensi domino Ebrardo", with the consent of "conjunx mea Eufemia et frater meus Rainaldus", by charter dated to [1142][353]m EUPHEMIE, daughter of --- (-after [1142]).  “Manasses dominus Conteiensis” exchanged property with "Brituliensi domino Ebrardo" and made donations to Amiens, with the consent of "conjunx mea Eufemia et frater meus Rainaldus", by charter dated to [1142][354].  Manassès [III] & his wife had two children: 

a)         JEAN de Conty (-after 1164).  Seigneur de Conty.  “Johannes dominus Conteiensis” confirmed the donation of land "in territorio Belvacensi" made to Amiens by "domini Manasse patris predicti Johannis", with the consent of “fratre suo Roberto”, by charter dated to [1144/64], which also notes the donation made by “Otsmundus...de Conteio partem suam” with the consent of “domino suo Johanne Conteiensi[355].  Thierry Bishop of Amiens confirmed agreements with “Manassem dominum castelli Conteiensis et Johannem filius ipsius [...quarte partis quartam portionem] et Everardum de Britolio [...quarte...partis...concedente...filiis suis Gualeranno et Hugone] et Petrum de Velana [...octavum parte]” concerning "vicecomitatu villarum...de Dommeliers, de Dommorez, de Vacaria, de Bonoculo, de Fontanis", half of which was held by the church and the other half “de feodo domini Conteiensis”, by charter dated 1150, which names “Otmundus de Conteio...” among the sureties[356].  Louis VII King of France confirmed the agreement between the church and Amiens and “Johannes de Contiaco” concerning "villis...in pago Belvacensi" by charter dated 1154[357].  “Joannes dominus Conteii” donated property at Halloy to the church of Lannoy by charter dated 1163[358].  “Johannes dominus Conteii” confirmed the donation of “medietatem Haleii” to Lannoy made by “homines mei Robertus de Hestomaisnil et filii eius...” by charter dated 1163, witnessed by “...Robertus frater meus...[359].  “Joannes dominus C[onteii]” confirmed a donation to the church of Lannoy by charter dated 1164, witnessed by “Robertus frater meus[360]

b)         ROBERT de Conty (-after 1164).  “Johannes dominus Conteiensis” confirmed the donation of land "in territorio Belvacensi" made to Amiens by "domini Manasse patris predicti Johannis", with the consent of “fratre suo Roberto”, by charter dated to [1144/64][361].  “Johannes dominus Conteii” confirmed the donation of “medietatem Haleii” to Lannoy made by “homines mei Robertus de Hestomaisnil et filii eius...” by charter dated 1163, witnessed by “...Robertus frater meus...[362].  “Joannes dominus C[onteii]” confirmed a donation to the church of Lannoy by charter dated 1164, witnessed by “Robertus frater meus[363]

2.         RENAUD de Conty (-after [1142]).  “Manasses dominus Conteiensis” exchanged property with "Brituliensi domino Ebrardo" and made donations to Amiens, with the consent of "conjunx mea Eufemia et frater meus Rainaldus", by charter dated to [1142][364]

 

 

The names of the following family are different from those used in the other family groups of the seigneurs de Conty, which suggests that they may have been unrelated.  Rembault refers to Osmond [I] as “second seigneur connu de Conty[365].  However, he quotes no source which names Osmond [I] at all (except the charter dated 1184, in which is unclear whether his reference to “seigneur de Conty” reflects the wording of the original document or is just his own invention), and neither of his two sons named below are referred to as “seigneur” in any of the sources quoted.  The charters dated [1144/64] and 1150, quoted below, suggest that the interest of Osmond [II] in the property donated was subordinate to that of Manassès [III].  It is possible that Osmond’s interest in Conty was a separate grant which had been made by the suzerain of the seigneurie to a completely different family. 

1.         OSMOND [I] de Conty .  Osmond [I] is named only in the charter of his sons dated 1184 (see below).  m ---.  The name of Osmond’s wife is not known.  Osmond [I] & his wife had two children: 

a)         OSMOND [II] de Conty (-after 1184).  Odon Bishop of Beauvais confirmed donations to Lannoy, including the donation of property “advocaturam Teoleti” made by “Osmundus de Conteio et frater eius Giroldus”, by charter dated 1140[366].  “Johannes dominus Conteiensis” confirmed the donation of land "in territorio Belvacensi" made to Amiens by "domini Manasse patris predicti Johannis", with the consent of “fratre suo Roberto”, by charter dated to [1144/64], which also notes the donation made by “Otsmundus...de Conteio partem suam” with the consent of “domino suo Johanne Conteiensi[367].  Thierry Bishop of Amiens confirmed agreements with “Manassem dominum castelli Conteiensis et Johannem filius ipsius [...quarte partis quartam portionem] et Everardum de Britolio [...quarte...partis...concedente...filiis suis Gualeranno et Hugone] et Petrum de Velana [...octavum parte]” concerning "vicecomitatu villarum...de Dommeliers, de Dommorez, de Vacaria, de Bonoculo, de Fontanis", half of which was held by the church and the other half “de feodo domini Conteiensis”, by charter dated 1150, which names “Otmundus de Conteio...” among the sureties[368].  “Girault de Conty et Osmond II son frère, tous deux fils d’Osmond I seigneur de Conty” confirmed their donations to the abbey of Gard by charter dated 1184[369]

b)         GERAUD (-after 1184).  Odon Bishop of Beauvais confirmed donations to Lannoy, including the donation of property “advocaturam Teoleti” made by “Osmundus de Conteio et frater eius Giroldus”, by charter dated 1140[370].  “Radulfus...comes Clarimontis et dominus Britolii” reached agreement with Lannoy abbey over “feodis meis in Montania constitutis ad Willelmum de Belsart et Giroldum de Conti”, with the consent of “uxore mea comitissa Aeliza et filia mea Katerina et fratre meo Symone cum uxore sua Matilde”, by charter dated 1174[371].  “Girault de Conty et Osmond II son frère, tous deux fils d’Osmond I seigneur de Conty” confirmed their donations to the abbey of Gard by charter dated 1184[372]

 

 

Three siblings.  Their parents have not been positively identified.  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that Jean and Robert were the same persons as the two sons of Manassès [III] de Conty who are named above. 

1.         JEAN de Conty (-[before 1181]).  Co-seigneur de Bulles.  "Nobilis mulier Adelidis de Bullis" founded the priory of Wariville, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Lancelini…Manasseri, Renaldi, Theobaldi et filiarum suarum Beatricis, Mabiliæ, Basilidis. et quorumdam etiam successorum...Willelmi de Merloto, Joannis et Roberti fratrum de Conti", confirmed by the bull of Pope Alexander III dated 10 Jul 1175[373].  It is likely that Jean de Conty died before 1181, when "nos duo domini Bullarum…Willaumus de Meloto, Ermentrudis uxor mea et Renaldus filius meus…Robertus de Conteio alius dominus Bullarum et mei nepotes Manasserus et Johannes" granted a communal charter to the town of Bulles[374]m --- [de Bulles, daughter of --- & his wife --- de Bulles].  The possible parentage of Jean’s wife is discussed fully in the section of this document which sets out the seigneurs de Bulles.  Jean & his wife had [one child]: 

a)         [MANASSES [VI] de Bulles (-after 1181).  "Nos duo domini Bullarum…Willaumus de Meloto, Ermentrudis uxor mea et Renaldus filius meus…Robertus de Conteio alius dominus Bullarum et mei nepotes Manasserus et Johannes" granted a communal charter to the town of Bulles in 1181[375].  The primary source which confirms that Manassès [VI] was the son of Jean de Conty has not been identified.  It is more likely that Manassès [VI] was the son of Jean de Conty co-Seigneur de Bulles than of Jean’s younger brother Manassès [V]: Jean had acquired his right to Bulles through his presumed marriage, and it would not therefore be surprising if his son adopted the name “Bulles”, whereas Manassès [V] would have had no obvious right to transmit the name to his children.  If that hypothesis is correct, the two “nepotes” of Robert de Conty who are named in the charter dated 1181 would not have been brothers.  [same person as...?  MANASSES de Bulles (-after 1202).  “Manasses de Buglis et uxor mea Aelis et filii mei Manasses et Drogo” donated land to the monks of Beaupré by charter dated 1202[376].  This co-identity is not certain.  Another possibility is that the principal donor in this charter was Manassès, son of Renaud de Mello.  As noted above, the Bulles inheritance was shared between the Mello and Conty families.  It is perfectly possible that members of both families adopted the Bulles name.  m ALIX, daughter of --- (-6 Jan ----).  “Manasses de Buglis et uxor mea Aelis et filii mei Manasses et Drogo” donated land to the monks of Beaupré by charter dated 1202[377].  The necrology of Saint-Pierre records the death “VIII Id Jan” of “Aelidis uxor Manasseri de Bullis” and her donation[378].  Manassès & his wife had two children:]  [same person as…?  MANASSES de Bulles (-[1222/Jul 1223]).  This is only one possible identity of Manassès de Bulles who is named in the 1222 and Jul 1223 charters which are quoted below (the others so far identified are Manassès [V], named below, and a possible son of Erard [III] Seigneur de Breteuil by his second wife).  Given the chronology of the Conty/Bulles and Breteuil families, this is probably the least likely possibility as it is difficult to see how Manassès [VI] could be “avunculus” to Amicie de Breteuil.  No earlier reference has yet been found to the seigneurie de Blanc-Fossé (located in the Beauvaisis), so there is no indication whether it formed part of the holdings of the Bulles, Breteuil, Conty or Mello families.  Seigneur de Blanc-Fossé: “Manasserus de Bullis miles dominus de Albo Fossato” donated “vingt journaux de bois en la vallée de Paillart” to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais by charter dated 1222[379].  He appointed as his heir Amicie Dame de Breteuil: “Amicia domina Britulii” confirmed the donation made by “dominus Manasserus de Bullis avunculus meus, de Albo Fossato dominus, ad ultimum vite sue”, adding that she was “in hereditate dicti Manasseri, avunculi mei, jure hereditario”, by charter dated Jul 1223[380].  It has not yet proved possible to identify beyond doubt the precise family relationship between Manassès and Amicie.] 

i)          [MANASSES (-after 1202).  “Manasses de Buglis et uxor mea Aelis et filii mei Manasses et Drogo” donated land to the monks of Beaupré by charter dated 1202[381].  As noted above, it is possible that Manassès and his brother Dreux were members of the Mello family.  This is suggested by the name Dreux, although another possibility is that their mother was a Mello.] 

ii)         [DREUX (-after 1202).  “Manasses de Buglis et uxor mea Aelis et filii mei Manasses et Drogo” donated land to the monks of Beaupré by charter dated 1202[382].  Presumably he and his brother predeceased their father.  As noted above, it is possible that Manassès and his brother Dreux were members of the Mello family.  This is suggested by the name Dreux, although another possibility is that their mother was a Mello.] 

2.         ROBERT de Conty (-after 1208).  Co-seigneur de Bulles.  "Nobilis mulier Adelidis de Bullis" founded the priory of Wariville, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Lancelini…Manasseri, Renaldi, Theobaldi et filiarum suarum Beatricis, Mabiliæ, Basilidis. et quorumdam etiam successorum...Willelmi de Merloto, Joannis et Roberti fratrum de Conti", confirmed by the bull of Pope Alexander III dated 10 Jul 1175[383].  "Nos duo domini Bullarum…Willaumus de Meloto, Ermentrudis uxor mea et Renaldus filius meus…Robertus de Conteio alius dominus Bullarum et mei nepotes Manasserus et Johannes" granted a communal charter to the town of Bulles in 1181[384].  "Johannes filius Manasses de Conti" confirmed the donation to the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent of property "apud Bullas castrum" by "Robertus de Conti avunculus meus", by charter dated 1190[385].  "Robertus de Conti et Johannes nepos meus filius Manasseri de Conti" relinquished harvesting rights ("droits de champart") over land of "Balduini Cordele" in favour of the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent by charter dated 1202[386].  “Robertus de Conteio dominus de Bullis, Philippa de Bullis uxor eius” are named in a charter of Saint-Germer dated 1203[387].  “Robertus de Conteio dominus Buglarum” notified that “Renaldus filius Ursionis de Castilione” had donated property to Saint-Just-en-Chaussée by charter dated 1206[388].  "Robertus de Contiaco Dnus Bullarum" donated harvesting rights over other land in favour of Saint-Leu d’Esserent by charter dated 1208[389]m PHILIPPA de Bulles, daughter of ---.  “Robertus de Conteio dominus de Bullis, Philippa de Bullis uxor eius” are named in a charter of Saint-Germer dated 1203[390].  The possible parentage of Robert’s wife is discussed fully in the section of this document which sets out the seigneurs de Bulles. 

3.         MANASSES [V] de Conty .  The only reference so far found to Manassès de Conty is that the charter dated 1190 in which [his son] "Johannes filius Manasses de Conti" confirmed the donation to the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent of property "apud Bullas castrum" by "Robertus de Conti avunculus meus"[391].  [same person as…?  MANASSES de Bulles (-[1222/Jul 1223]).  This is only one possible identity of Manassès de Bulles who is named in the 1222 and Jul 1223 charters which are quoted below (the others so far identified are Manassès [VI], named above, and a possible son of Erard [III] Seigneur de Breteuil by his second wife).  Given the chronology of the Conty/Bulles and Breteuil families, this is a likely possibility from the point of view of chronology as it is not impossible that  Manassès [V] was old enough to be described as “avunculus” of Amicie de Breteuil.  The difficulty is working out an uncle/niece relationship between the two, although “avunculus” could also indicate a relationship by marriage or a relationship in which one of Amicie’s parents was the first cousin of Manassès.  Another difficulty is that it is unclear what right Manassès [V] de Conty would have had to adopt the name “Bulles”, given that his brothers appear to have acquired their right to Bulles through marriage (see above).  No earlier reference has yet been found to the seigneurie de Blanc-Fossé (located in the Beauvaisis), so there is no indication whether it formed part of the holdings of the Bulles, Breteuil, Conty or Mello families.  Seigneur de Blanc-Fossé: “Manasserus de Bullis miles dominus de Albo Fossato” donated “vingt journaux de bois en la vallée de Paillart” to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais by charter dated 1222[392].  He appointed as his heir Amicie Dame de Breteuil: “Amicia domina Britulii” confirmed the donation made by “dominus Manasserus de Bullis avunculus meus, de Albo Fossato dominus, ad ultimum vite sue”, adding that she was “in hereditate dicti Manasseri, avunculi mei, jure hereditario”, by charter dated Jul 1223[393].]  m ---.  The name of Manassès’s wife is not known.  Manassès [V] & his wife had one child: 

a)         JEAN (-after 1202).  "Nos duo domini Bullarum…Willaumus de Meloto, Ermentrudis uxor mea et Renaldus filius meus…Robertus de Conteio alius dominus Bullarum et mei nepotes Manasserus et Johannes" granted a communal charter to the town of Bulles in 1181[394].  "Johannes filius Manasses de Conti" confirmed the donation to the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent of property "apud Bullas castrum" by "Robertus de Conti avunculus meus", by charter dated 1190[395].  "Robertus de Conti et Johannes nepos meus filius Manasseri de Conti" relinquished harvesting rights ("droits de champart") over land of "Balduini Cordele" in favour of the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent by charter dated 1202[396]

 

 

Two brothers, parents not identified.  As noted above, there is some suspicion that Manassès [IV] may have been the same person as Manassès [I].  It is also possible that Manassès [IV] was the same person as Manassès [V] (see above) who is also recorded with a son named Jean. 

1.         MANASSES [IV] (-after 1190).  Seigneur de Conty.  “Manasses de Conty” donated property at Wavignies to the monks of Breteuil, with the consent of “Clémence sa femme, de Jean et Robert ses fils et de Marie sa fille”, by charter dated 1189[397].  “Manasses de Conteio et Clementia uxor mea et filii mei Joannes et Gerardus et Maria filia mea” donated harvest produce to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais, with the consent of “Jean frère de Manassès”, by charter dated 1190[398]m CLEMENCE, daughter of --- (-after 1190).  “Manasses de Conty” donated property at Wavignies to the monks of Breteuil, with the consent of “Clémence sa femme, de Jean et Robert ses fils et de Marie sa fille”, by charter dated 1189[399].  “Manasses de Conteio et Clementia uxor mea et filii mei Joannes et Gerardus et Maria filia mea” donated harvest produce to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais, with the consent of “Jean frère de Manassès”, by charter dated 1190[400].  Manassès [IV] & his wife had four children: 

a)         JEAN de Conty (-after 1224).  “Manasses de Conty” donated property at Wavignies to the monks of Breteuil, with the consent of “Clémence sa femme, de Jean et Robert ses fils et de Marie sa fille”, by charter dated 1189[401].  “Manasses de Conteio et Clementia uxor mea et filii mei Joannes et Gerardus et Maria filia mea” donated harvest produce to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais, with the consent of “Jean frère de Manassès”, by charter dated 1190[402].  A charter dated to [1200] names "Johannes de Conti…" among the fiefs of the county of Clermont[403].  “Joannes de Conty” confirmed a donation by “fidelis meus Gerardus de sancto Remigio et de Butenangle” by charter dated 1224[404].  The necrology of Saint-Quentin records the death “XII Kal Jun” of “Joannes de Conteio miles[405]

b)         ROBERT de Conty .  “Manasses de Conty” donated property at Wavignies to the monks of Breteuil, with the consent of “Clémence sa femme, de Jean et Robert ses fils et de Marie sa fille”, by charter dated 1189[406]m ---.  The name of Robert’s wife is not known.  Robert & his wife had one child: 

i)          JEAN de Conty (-after 1234).  Seigneur de Conty.  “Johannes dominus de Conti filius Roberti de Conti” confirmed a sale of property by Jean de Thieux to Froidmont by charter dated 1229[407].  “Joannes dominus de Conteio miles” confirmed donations to Conty Saint-Antoine, with the consent of “Ermangardis uxoris meæ et Manassœi filii mei primogeniti et aliorum liberorum...meorum”, by charter dated May 1229[408].  Rembault states that Jean de Conty approved a donation made by Thibaut Seigneur de Tilloy dated 1234[409]m ERMENGARDE, daughter of --- (-after 1243).  “Joannes dominus de Conteio miles” confirmed donations to Conty Saint-Antoine, with the consent of “Ermangardis uxoris meæ et Manassœi filii mei primogeniti et aliorum liberorum...meorum”, by charter dated May 1229[410].  “Ermengardis relicta Johannis de Conti militls” confirmed donations to Froidmont made by Pierre de Quiévremont by charter dated 1243[411].  Jean & his wife had [three or more] children: 

(1)       MANASSES [VII] de Conty .  “Joannes dominus de Conteio miles” confirmed donations to Conty Saint-Antoine, with the consent of “Ermangardis uxoris meæ et Manassœi filii mei primogeniti et aliorum liberorum...meorum”, by charter dated May 1229[412].  Rembault states that Manassès [VII] succeeded his father Jean as seigneur de Conty[413].  However, he cites no document in which Manassès [VII] is named after May 1229. 

(2)       children .  “Joannes dominus de Conteio miles” confirmed donations to Conty Saint-Antoine, with the consent of “Ermangardis uxoris meæ et Manassœi filii mei primogeniti et aliorum liberorum...meorum”, by charter dated May 1229[414]

c)         MARIE de Conty .  “Manasses de Conty” donated property at Wavignies to the monks of Breteuil, with the consent of “Clémence sa femme, de Jean et Robert ses fils et de Marie sa fille”, by charter dated 1189[415].  “Manasses de Conteio et Clementia uxor mea et filii mei Joannes et Gerardus et Maria filia mea” donated harvest produce to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais, with the consent of “Jean frère de Manassès”, by charter dated 1190[416]

d)         GERARD de Conty .  “Manasses de Conteio et Clementia uxor mea et filii mei Joannes et Gerardus et Maria filia mea” donated harvest produce to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais, with the consent of “Jean frère de Manassès”, by charter dated 1190[417]

2.         JEAN de Conty (-after 1190).  “Manasses de Conteio et Clementia uxor mea et filii mei Joannes et Gerardus et Maria filia mea” donated harvest produce to Hôtel-Dieu de Beauvais, with the consent of “Jean frère de Manassès”, by charter dated 1190[418]

 

 

The connection between the following individuals and the previous family of seigneurs de Conty has not been established.  The name Eustache, not used by the known members of the earlier family, suggests that there may have been a remote or even no family relationship.  There appear to be two possibilities.  Firstly, Eustache could have been related to the previous seigneur de Conty through the female line.  Secondly, the last seigneur de Conty may have sold his seigneurie to a different family entirely.  Rembault refers to Agnes (see below) as having succeeded as “dame de Conty et de Hallencourt[419].  No other reference has been found to Hallencourt in connection with the Conty family.  It is possible that it was the family name of Eustache [I]. 

 

1.         EUSTACHE [I] de Conty (-after 1261).  “Eustachius de Conti miles” was named in charters of Froidmont monastery dated 1243, of Wariville dated 1246, and Saint-Lucien de Beauvais dated 1261[420]

 

2.         EUSTACHE [II] de Conty (-after 1296).  “Eustache seigneur de Conty” confirmed the grant of privileges to Bulles [granted by Robert de Conty and Guillaume de Mello in 1181] by charter dated 1296[421].  Rembault assumes that Eustache [II] was the same person as Eustache [I][422].  However, the wide date range of the documents in which “Eustache de Conty” is named suggests that there were two individuals of this name in the 13th century. 

 

3.         AGNES de Conty (-after 1348).  Rembault states that Agnes was the daughter of “Eustache [de Conty]” and that she was “après son père dame de Conty et de Hallencourt[423].  He cites no source which confirms that Agnes was the daughter of Eustache.  Saint-Pons states that “Wauthier II sire du Hamel chevalier surnommé Maillard épousa en secondes noces vers 1300 Agnès dame de Conty et de Hallencourt” but does not cite the primary source on which the statement is based[424].  Dame de Conty.  Agnes was named “dame du Hamel, de Conti et de Bulles” in a charter dated 1348[425].  Rembault states that this document “prouve d’abord son mariage avec Wauthier II sire du Hamel; ensuite sa descendance irréfragable des anciens sires de Conty[426].  As far as the second point is concerned, it does not prove the descent.  If, as pointed out above as one possibility, the last seigneur de Conty had sold his seigneurie to Eustache, Agnes (assuming that she was related in some way) would have had the right to call herself Dame de Conty et de Bulles.  m ([1300]) as his second wife, GAUTHIER [II] Seigneur du Hamel, son of JEAN [I] du Hamel & his wife Marie de Heilly (-after Apr 1310). 

 

 

 

F.      SEIGNEURS de GARLANDE

 

 

1.         AUBERTm ---.  The name of Aubert’s wife is not known.  Aubert & his wife had one child: 

a)         ADAM .  "Domnus Adam filius domni Alberti" donated the church of Noisiel to Cluny by charter dated to [1078][427]

 

 

2.         GUILLAUME [I] de Garlande (-before 1095).  Seigneur de Garlande-en-Brie.  m HAVOISE, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not been identified.   Guillaume [I] & his wife had five children: 

a)         GILBERT [Guy/Payen] de Garlande (-after 1097).  "Paganus, Ansellus et Willelmus de Garlanda" confirmed the donation by "Albertus miles" of "ecclesiam de Monciaco" to Saint-Martin-des-Champs by charter dated to [1092][428].  "Gislebertus cognomento Paganus" donated the seigneurie of Noisiel to Saint-Martin-des-Champs, with the consent of "fratribus suis Stephano…clerico, Anselmo, Willelmo et alio Gilleberto", by charter dated to [1079/1 May 1095][429].  Seneschal of France.  William of Tyre names "Guido de Garlanda Francorum regis dapifer" among those who left on the First Crusade in 1096 with Robert Count of Flanders[430].  William of Tyre names "Galterus…de Garlanda Francorum regis dapifer" among those who fought "Solimannus" in 1097[431]Albert of Aix records the brave participation of "…Paganus de Garlanda dapifer regis Francorum…" in the siege of Nikaia, dated to mid-1097 from the context[432]

b)         ETIENNE de Garlande (-14 Jan 1150).  Chancellor of France.  The Chronicon Mauriniacensi records the death of "Willelmo Anselli dapifero germano", adding that "Stephanus Cancellarius…frater amborum" was made "Major regiæ domus"[433].  Seneschal of France, named in charters dated 1120 to 1124[434]The abbot of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Stephani de Garlanda”, who held “castrum Gurnaicum...in advocatione pro Amalrico Ebrocensi comite neptis sue filio”, agreed terms for renouncing certain revenues by charter dated 1138[435]Bishop of Beauvais

c)         ANSEAU [I] (-killed in battle Le Puiset [3 Aug 1117/1 Jan 1118]).  "Paganus, Ansellus et Willelmus de Garlanda" confirmed the donation by "Albertus miles" of "ecclesiam de Monciaco" to Saint-Martin-des-Champs by charter dated to [1092][436].  Seneschal of France, named in charters dated 1108 to 6 Jan 1118[437].  Comte de Rochefort.  Orderic Vitalis records that "Ansello de Guarlanda principi militiæ Francorum" was killed during the siege of Puiset[438]m [--- de Rochefort, daughter of GUY [II] "le Rouge" Comte de Rochefort Seigneur de Montlhéry & his first wife Elisabeth ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.   Père Anselme records that an unnamed daughter of Guy [II] married “Anseau de Garlande senechal de France” but indicates no primary source on which the statement is based[439].  It may be speculative designed to explain the transmission of Rochefort to her daughter.]  Anseau [I] & his wife had one child: 

i)          AGNES (-after 1136).  The Chronicon Mauriniacensi records that "Stephanus Cancellarius" arranged the marriage of "nepti sua" and "Amalrico de Monteforti", adding that her dowry was "honore de Rupe-forti" [Rochefort][440].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.   Du Chesne suggests that the widow of Amaury [III] de Montfort Comte d’Evreux married, as her second husband and his first wife, Robert de France Seigneur de Dreux[441].  He bases this on a charter dated to [1 Nov 1183/31 Mar 1184] in which Philippe II King of France confirmed the property of Notre-Dame de Colombs, including property "in loco Campus à la Drouë" donated by "Robertus comes de Drocis et de Montfort" and "domum de là Nouë" donated by "Simon de Drocis in sua ultima voluntate"[442].  Du Chesne’s argument is that Robert Seigneur de Dreux could only have been entitled to "le titre de comte de Montfort, don’t le roy le rehausse" from "un mariage fait avec la douairiere de la mesme comté".  He also suggests that "Simon de Drocis", also named in the same charter, was the son of this marriage.  There are three difficulties with Du Chesne’s argument.  Firstly, Amaury [III] de Montfort was comte d’Evreux not "comte de Montfort", a title which does not appear ever to have been borne by members of his family.  Secondly, the chronology is unfavourable for the widow of Amaury [III], who was probably born in [1110/15] at the latest, to have married Robert de Dreux whose birth is estimated to [1124/26].  Thirdly, it is unlikely that Agnes would have given the name Simon to a son born from this supposed second marriage, given that she already had a son of that name by her marriage to Amaury.  In conclusion, the evidence of the [1183/84] charter alone is insufficient to corroborate this marriage.  m (before 1127) as his second wife, AMAURY [III] de Montfort Comte d’Evreux, son of SIMON [I] Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury & his third wife Agnès d'Evreux (-[18/19] Apr [1136/38], bur Abbaye de Haute-Bruyère).   

d)         GUILLAUME [II] (-murdered 23 Mar 1120).  "Paganus, Ansellus et Willelmus de Garlanda" confirmed the donation by "Albertus miles" of "ecclesiam de Monciaco" to Saint-Martin-des-Champs by charter dated to [1092][443]

-        see below

e)         GILBERT (-after 1127).  "Gislebertus cognomento Paganus" donated the seigneurie of Noisiel to Saint-Martin-des-Champs, with the consent of "fratribus suis Stephano…clerico, Anselmo, Willelmo et alio Gilleberto", by charter dated to [1079/1 May 1095][444].  Bouteiller de France [1112], dismissed 1127. 

 

 

GUILLAUME [II] de Garlande, son of GUILLAUME [I] Seigneur de Garlande & his wife Havoise --- (-murdered 23 Mar 1120).  "Paganus, Ansellus et Willelmus de Garlanda" confirmed the donation by "Albertus miles" of "ecclesiam de Monciaco" to Saint-Martin-des-Champs by charter dated to [1092][445].  Suger's Vita Ludovici names "Ansellus de Garlanda dapifer…Guillelmus frater…dapiferi" in the record of the campaign against Guy "le Rouge" Comte de Rochefort in 1108[446]Philippe I King of France received the homage of nepotem nostrum Theobaldum comitem Trecensem”, the king being seconded by “...Guillelmus de Gallanda...”, by charter dated Apr 1110[447].  Seneschal of France, named in charters dated 1118 to 1120[448].  The Chronicon Mauriniacensi records the death of "Willelmo Anselli dapifero germano", adding that "Stephanus Cancellarius…frater amborum" was made "Major regiæ domus"[449]

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

Guillaume [II] & his wife had [three] children:

1.         ANSEAU [III] de Garlande (-[Apr/Sep] 1287).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although it is indicated by his inheritance of the seigneurie de Tournan.  Seigneur de Tournan.  "Ansellus miles dominus Turnomii" swore hommage to the bishop of Paris for "castro et castellania de Turnomio...quam frater eius habebat...mater eiusdem domini habebat" by charter dated 13 Sep 1249[542].  Seigneur de Possesse.  Anselme de Garlande seigneur de Possesse” divided “[le] finage de Cloix” with Monstiers-en-Argonne by charter dated 1253[543].  “Ansiaus de Gallande chevaliers sires de Poussesse et de Tornant en Brie” acted as guarantor to Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne for “mon...cousin mon signor Henri de Hans chevalier” [Henri de Grandpré-Hans, their precise family relationship has not been ascertained] by charter dated [May] 1267[544]m HAWISE de Montmorency, daughter of BOUCHARD [VI] Seigneur de Montmorency & his wife Isabelle de Laval (-before Sep 1287).  A charter dated Sep 1287 records that "damoisele Aales de Montmorenci" confirmed an obligation under the marriage contract between “monseigneur Anssel de Gallende chevalier sires iadis de Tournem en Brie” and “feu Haovys iadis sa fame fille iadis feu mon seigneur Bouchart iadis sires de Montmorenci et de Ysabel iadis fame d’icelui Bouchart”, and that “Iehan de Gallende escuier sires de Tournem” confirmed that “ladite feu Hauys estoit morte sans hoir propre de son corps[545]

b)         [ALIX de Garlande (-after 1335).  Her three marriages are confirmed by the following: a document of the Parlement de Paris dated 4 Jan 1337 records that “les héritiers et exécuteurs testamentaires de Dreu de Roye chevalier” were ordered to guarantee “Rogue sire de Hangest chevalier et Aubert son fils écuyer” relating to claims against “[les] fidéjusseurs d’Aubert de Narcy chevalier, mort avant d’avoir exécuté les engagements qu’il avait contractés conjointement avec son frère Pierre envers le roi de Bohème”, noting that “ces charges avaient été transmises par la veuve d’Aubert de Narcy à son second mari Dreu de Roye” after whose death she had married “en troisièmes noces Rogue de Hangest, tandis que sa fille de mariait avec Aubert fils de Rogue[550].  Père Anselme names her as daughter of Jean de Garlande Seigneur de Possesse[551].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  m firstly AUBERT Seigneur de Narcy, son of ---.  m secondly DREUX de Roye Seigneur de Germigny, son of MATHIEU [I] Seigneur de Roye et de Germigny & his wife Alix --- (-[1329/34]).  m thirdly as his second wife, RORICON Seigneur de Hangest, son of JEAN [III Seigneur de Hangest & his wife Jeanne de la Tournelle (-[1352]).]

3.         [ALIX (-5 Mar ----)Richemond suggests that Alix, wife of Adam [II] de Villebéon, was the sister of Anseau [III] de Garlande Seigneur de Tournan, which would explain the claim brought by Alix’s husband in 1261 against Anseau de Garlande “au sujet de l’exercice du droit de justice dans les territoires de Châtrees et de la Houssaye”, territories which, in this scenario, would have formed part of her dowry[552]The necrology of the Abbaye du Jard records the death "III Non Mar" of "domine Aalidis, quondam uxoris domini Ade cambellani, primogeniti de Villabeonis" and her donation[553]m (before 1240) ADAM [II] de Villebéon, son of ADAM [I] Seigneur de Villebéon & his first wife Isabelle de Tancarville (-14 Sep 1264, bur Jard).]

 

 

 

G.      SEIGNEURS de PIERREFONDS

 

 

Pierrefonds is located west of Soissons in the present-day French département of Oise.  In the early 12th century, the seigneurs de Pierrefonds were vassals of the comtes de Clermont, as shown by the charter dated 1127 which is quoted below.  The castle which stands today was constructed in the late 14th century on the orders of Louis Duke of Orléans. 

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         NIVELON [I] de PierrefondsSeigneur de Pierrefonds.  “Heddo Suessionensium episcopus et Elinandus Laudunensium præsul...Frollandus Silvanectensis episcopus, Gualerannus camerarius, Theobaldus de Crispiaco, Nivelo de Petræfonte” subscribed the charter dated 27 May 1061 under which Philippe I King of France privileges to “basilicam...martyris Adriani” founded by “Richardus Bistisiacensis castellanus miles” [Béthisy], with the consent of “uxore sua Millesinde et filiis” and confirmed donations including by “Hugo...Ricardi filius[554]m ---.  The name of Nivelon’s wife is not known.  Nivelon [I] & his wife had two children:

i)          PIERRE de Pierrefonds .  "Dominus Nivelo dominus de Petrafonte" donated the church of Saint-Maxime at Pierrefonds to Marmoutier, with the consent of "filiis suis Petro, Anscullo, Nivelone et Drogone…uxoris eius…[…Advisa]…", by charter dated to [1100][560]

v)        AVELINE de Pierrefonds (-12 May after 1119).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.   A charter dated 1119 records the settlement of a dispute between the monks of Saint-Jean-des-Vignes and "heres eius…comes Johannes" concerning property donated by "Aylaidis comitissa", after whose death "Johannes filius eius" disputed the donation, with the consent of "ipso puero comite et comitissa matre eius Avelina"[565].  The necrology of Reims [Saint-Rémi] records the death "XI Kal Jun" of "Avelina comitissa Suessionensis et monacha"[566]m JEAN Comte de Soissons, son of GUILLAUME d’Eu Comte de Soissons & his wife Adela Ctss de Soissons (-after 1115).

a)         NIVELON [IV] de Pierrefonds (-[1161]).  "Drogo…Petrefontensis dominus…et uxore eius Beatrice…et Nivelo filius meus" attested that "Johanne de Roia" had renounced his claims over land donated by Drogo to the abbey of Valsery by charter dated 1160[591]Seigneur de Pierrefondsm as her first husband, HEDDIVA [Basilie] de Moncy, daughter of DREUX [II] de Moncy & his wife Basilie ---.  The History of Louis VII King of France records that "Nivilo de Petrafonte et Drogo de Merloto" had married "duas filias Drogonis de Monceio"[592].  She married secondly (after 1161) Enguerrand [II] "Aiguillon" de Trie.  The History of Louis VII King of France records that "uxorem cujus" married "Ingerrano de Tria" after the death of "Nivilo"[593]

c)         [HUGUES (-[before 1168]).  "Uxor domini Drogonis de Petrafonte, domina Beatrix" donated toll rights to the monks of Vieux-Crécy, "pro viro suo et filiis suis Widone, Hugone atque Johanne", by charter dated to [1 Jan 1144/15 Apr 1145], witnessed by "Hugo monachus frater eius…"[596]"Wido de Castellione" renewed the donation of revenue to the church of Saint-Martin de Crécy, made by "uxor Drogone de Petrafonte, domina Beatrix" for "viro suo et pro filiis suis Widone, Hugone atque Johanne", in the presence of "Hugone monacho fratre predicte Beatricis…", by charter dated 1168[597].  The wording of this charter suggests that Beatrix’s three sons were deceased when she made her donation.  Assuming that their mother’s first marriage is correct as shown above, it is possible that Guy, Hugues and Jean were born from that first marriage and were not the sons of Dreux de Pierrefonds.] 

d)         [JEAN (-[before 1168]).  "Uxor domini Drogonis de Petrafonte, domina Beatrix" donated toll rights to the monks of Vieux-Crécy, "pro viro suo et filiis suis Widone, Hugone atque Johanne", by charter dated to [1 Jan 1144/15 Apr 1145], witnessed by "Hugo monachus frater eius…"[598]"Wido de Castellione" renewed the donation of revenue to the church of Saint-Martin de Crécy, made by "uxor Drogone de Petrafonte, domina Beatrix" for "viro suo et pro filiis suis Widone, Hugone atque Johanne", in the presence of "Hugone monacho fratre predicte Beatricis…", by charter dated 1168[599].  The wording of this charter suggests that Beatrix’s three sons were deceased when she made her donation.  Assuming that their mother’s first marriage is correct as shown above, it is possible that Guy, Hugues and Jean were born from that first marriage and were not the sons of Dreux de Pierrefonds.] 

e)         AGATHE (-after 1189).  The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Agathe" as wife of "Cono nepos eius [=Ivonis…Suessonensis comitis] Brugensis castellanus", specifying that her husband obtained "castrum Petrepontis" through her[600].  "Cono dominus Petrefontis et Agata uxor mea" confirmed the donation of "vicariam…Corborosa" made to Notre-Dame de Paris by "Sevinus de Rupeforti" by charter dated 1171, witnessed by "Theobaldi de Crespi…"[601]"Agathe comitisse…" subscribed the charter dated 1178 under which "Cono…comes Suessionensis dominus Petrofontis et Nigelle" donated property to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp[602]Philippe II King of France confirmed the donation made to Notre-Dame de Longpont by "Beatrix de Petrafontis", confirmed after her death by "Agatha de Petrafontis ipsius filia", by charter dated 1183[603].  "Agatha domina Petrefontis" confirmed a donation to the abbey of Valsery made by "Johannes Turcus" by charter dated 1189[604]m (before 1164) CONON de Nesles Châtelain de Bruges, son of RAOUL [II] de Nesle Châtelain de Bruges & his wife Gertrude de Montaigu (-1180 before 20 Apr).  Seigneur de Pierrefonds.  "Cono dominus Petrefontis et Agata uxor mea" confirmed the donation of "vicariam…Corborosa" made to Notre-Dame de Paris by "Sevinus de Rupeforti" by charter dated 1171, witnessed by "Theobaldi de Crespi…"[605]Comte de Soissons 1178.

Chapter 2.    DAMMARTIN

 

 

A.      COMTES de DAMMARTIN (MONTDIDIER)

 

 

The county of Paris included the six châtellenies of Dammartin-en-Goële, Livry-en-l'Aulnoye, Villemomble, Montmorency, Montjay-la Tour, Gournay-sur-Marne[607].  Dammartin evolved into a county in the early 11th century. 

 

 

MANASSES, son of [HILDUIN [I] Seigneur de Ramerupt & his wife ---] (-killed in battle Ornel, near Etain, Bar-le-Duc 15 Dec 1037, bur Verdun St Vannes)The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "comes Suessionis et comes de Dommartin et comes de Ronaco et Manasses cui agnomen Calva-asina" as brothers of "Helduino comiti de Ramerut"[608].  This passage names both "comes de Dommartin" and "Manasses cui agnomen Calva-asina" as brothers of "Helduini comiti de Ramerut".  As shown by the charter dated 4 Feb 1031 which is quoted below, "Hilduini comitis" had a brother and a son named Manassès.  A sensible interpretation of the Genealogiæ is therefore that "comes de Dammartin" (named Manassès) was the brother of Hilduin [II] and "Manasses cui agnomen Calva-asina" his son.  This speculation appears to be confirmed by the charter dated 1061, under which Philippe I King of France donated the village of Bagneux to the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in exchange for Combs, which recounts that "Hugonis ducis…magnus" [Hugues "le Grand"] had granted Combs to "Hilduino…comiti de Monte qui vocatur Desiderius", who died before his benefactor (i.e. before 956), and that Henri I King of France had regranted Combs to "Manasses nepos supradicti Hilduini comitis" just as "suus avunculus Hilduinus" had held it, noting that "Odo comes filius prefati Manassetis" now claimed the property as held by "avunculus patris eius Hilduinus"[609]Comte de Dammartin-en-Goële.  Robert II King of France confirmed the donation of "Manasses comes" to Chartres Notre-Dame by charter dated 4 Feb 1031, signed by "…Manasses comitis, Hilduini comitis fratris eius, filiorum eius Manassis et Hilduini, Burcardo de Montemorenciaco, Evrardi filii Hilduini de Britoglio, Amalrici de Monteforti, Milonis de Caprosa…"[610]The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "XVII Kal Dec" of "Odo, Manasses, Euzuinus, Dudo comites ante Bar castrum prelio interempti"[611]

m ([1023 or before]) CONSTANCE, daughter of [--- de Dammartin & his wife ---].  "Odo filius comitis Manassæ" donated a family of servants to "Carnotensi monasterio Sancti Petri", with the support of "fratre meo Hugone ac sorore nostra Eustachia", for the souls of "patre nostro Manasse et…nostra matre Constantia", by charter dated 9 Aug before 1060 "in palatio Meleduni castri"[612]There is no proof that she was Constance de France, daughter of Robert II King of France & his third wife Constance d’Arles [Provence], the affiliation being proposed for onomastic reasons only[613].  It is, however, suggested by the presence of the king and queen at the donation by "Manasses comes" dated 4 Feb 1031 (see above).  On the other hand, Rodolfus Glaber records that King Robert had two daughters by his wife Constance[614], presumably referring to Hedwige and Adela, so ignoring any daughter named Constance.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[615], the wife of Manassès was "Constance [de Dammartin]", presumably on the theory that she brought her husband the county of Dammartin. 

Manassès & his wife had three children: 

1.         EUDES de Dammartin (-after 1061).  "Odo filius comitis Manassæ" donated a family of servants to "Carnotensi monasterio Sancti Petri", with the support of "fratre meo Hugone ac sorore nostra Eustachia", for the souls of "patre nostro Manasse et…nostra matre Constantia", by charter dated 9 Aug before 1060 "in palatio Meleduni castri", witnessed by "Gualterius comes…"[616]Comte de Dammartin after 1050-[1060/61].  Philippe I King of France donated the village of Bagneux to the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in exchange for Combs by charter dated 1061, which recounts that "Hugonis ducis…magnus" [Hugues "le Grand"] had granted Combs to "Hilduino…comiti de Monte qui vocatur Desiderius", who died before his benefactor (i.e. before 956), and that Henri I King of France had regranted Combs to "Manasses nepos supradicti Hilduini comitis" just as "suus avunculus Hilduinus" had held it, noting that "Odo comes filius prefati Manassetis" now claimed the property as held by "avunculus patris eius Hilduinus"[617]

2.         HUGUES [I] de Dammartin (-after [1093]).  "Odo filius comitis Manassæ" donated a family of servants to "Carnotensi monasterio Sancti Petri", with the support of "fratre meo Hugone ac sorore nostra Eustachia", for the souls of "patre nostro Manasse et…nostra matre Constantia", by charter dated 9 Aug before 1060 "in palatio Meleduni castri"[618]Comte de Dammartin.  "…Hugonis comitis domni Martini…" subscribed the charter dated 1071 under which "Buccardus…Corbolensium comes" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Spire de Corbeil[619].  Seigneur de Bulles, which could have been inherited de iure uxoris, assuming that his wife’s family origin is correctly shown in Europäische Stammtafeln (see below): “Militarem Goselinum infantem...filium Ascelini de Buglis” donated “medietatem feodi de Honricourt” to Saint-Lucien de Beauvais, in the presence of “Hugone domino de Buglis et de Domno Martino et Matheo avunculo Goscelini”, by charter dated 1080, witnessed by “Matheus et Paganus avunculi Goscelini[620].  "Comes Hugo de Domnomartino" founded the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent and donated "feodum…Vuidonis de Rupe et feodum Rogerii de Nantolio", with the consent of "uxor…mea Roaidis…et filius meus Petrus et filie mee Basilia, Adalaidis, Eustachia", by charter dated 1081, witnessed by "Petrus filius Tetbaldi, Adam frater eius, Lambertus frater eius…"[621].  "Duo fratres Ebolus et Andreas et uxores nostre Sibilla et Adelisa et cognatus noster Hugo comes de Domno Martino uxorque eius Rothaidis" donated property to the church of Ramerupt Sainte-Marie by charter dated 1082[622].  A charter dated to [1093] records an agreement between the canons of Sainte-Marie Paris and “Hugonem comitem Donni Martini[623].  He became a monk at Saint-Leu, as shown by the undated charter under which [his son] "Petrus de Domno Martino comes" donated milling revenue to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, which "pater suus Hugo comes monachus noster" had donated[624]m ROHESE, [sister of ASCELIN de Bulles], daughter of ---.  "Comes Hugo de Domnomartino" founded the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "uxor…mea Roaidis…et filius meus Petrus et filie mee Basilia, Adalaidis, Eustachia", by charter dated 1081[625]Europäische Stammtafeln[626] indicates that Rohese was sister of “Ascelin de Bulles”.  This family origin is presumably speculative because her husband is described as “domino de Buglis” in the charter dated 1080 which is quoted above.   “Militarem Goselinum infantem...filium Ascelini de Buglis” donated “medietatem feodi de Honricourt” to Saint-Lucien de Beauvais, in the presence of “Hugone domino de Buglis et de Domno Martino et Matheo avunculo Goscelini”, by charter dated 1080, witnessed by “Matheus et Paganus avunculi Goscelini[627].  "Duo fratres Ebolus et Andreas et uxores nostre Sibilla et Adelisa et cognatus noster Hugo comes de Domno Martino uxorque eius Rothaidis" donated property to the church of Ramerupt Sainte-Marie by charter dated 1082[628].  Hugues & his wife had four children: 

a)         PIERRE de Dammartin (-Château de Rosnay, Champagne 13 Sep [1105/06], bur Esserent Saint-Leu).  "Comes Hugo de Domnomartino" founded the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "uxor…mea Roaidis…et filius meus Petrus et filie mee Basilia, Adalaidis, Eustachia", by charter dated 1081[629]Comte de Dammartin.  "Domino Petro comite de Domno Martino" consented to the sale of vines at Dammartin to the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent by charter dated 1104[630].  "Petrus de Domno Martino comes", retained by illness "apud Rosnacum castellum…in Campania", donated milling revenue to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, in return for the privilege of burial at the priory, by undated charter later confirmed by "comitissam Domni Martini Eustachiam…uxorem defuncti filiique eius matrem"[631].  He is named in a charter dated 1175: Louis VII King of France exempted "villa...Laniacum Siccum" [Lagny-le-Sec] from duties (“gistum”) which had been “privilegium comitis Petri, qui fuit comes Dunni-Martini”, claimed by "Willermus de Merloto et socii sui de terra Domni-Martini partiarii" who had been refused by judgment “in curia nostra”, by charter dated 1175[632]m EUSTACHIE, daughter of ---.  "Petrus de Domno Martino comes", retained by illness "apud Rosnacum castellum…in Campania", donated milling revenue to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, in return for the privilege of burial at the priory, by undated charter later confirmed by "comitissam Domni Martini Eustachiam…uxorem defuncti filiique eius matrem"[633].  Pierre & his wife had one child: 

i)          son (-after [1107]).  "Petrus de Domno Martino comes", retained by illness "apud Rosnacum castellum…in Campania", donated milling revenue to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, in return for the privilege of burial at the priory, by undated charter later confirmed by "comitissam Domni Martini Eustachiam…uxorem defuncti filiique eius matrem"[634]same person as…?  HUGUES [II] de Dammartin (-[after 1111]).  Comte de Dammartin.  "Hugo comes de Domno Martino…" witnessed the charter dated to [1107] under which "Petronilla uxor Drogonis filii Adam" donated half her garden at "Momicurtis" to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "filiis eius Fulcone et Pagano"[635].  Seigneur de Dammartin: Suger's Vita Ludovici names "Lancelinum Bulensem Domni Martini dominum" among those who opposed King Louis VI, dated to [1111][636].  The fact that he was not accorded the comital title suggests that he was administered the county of Dammartin, presumably on behalf of the count who was a minor. 

b)         BASILIE .  "Comes Hugo de Domnomartino" founded the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "uxor…mea Roaidis…et filius meus Petrus et filie mee Basilia, Adalaidis, Eustachia", by charter dated 1081[637]

c)         ADELA (-[15 Jan] 1167 or after).  "Comes Hugo de Domnomartino" founded the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "uxor…mea Roaidis…et filius meus Petrus et filie mee Basilia, Adalaidis, Eustachia", by charter dated 1081[638].  Dame de Bulles.  A charter of Amaury d’Auteuil dated 1114 records the consent of “Adeliza uxor Lanscelini et filii eius Manasses, Rainaldus, Theobaldus et filia Rohes” to a donation to Saint-Quentin de Beauvais[639].  "Nobilis mulier Adelidis de Bullis" founded the priory of Wariville, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Lancelini…Manasseri, Renaldi, Theobaldi et filiarum suarum Beatricis, Mabiliæ, Basilidis. et quorumdam etiam successorum...Willelmi de Merloto, Joannis et Roberti fratrum de Conti", confirmed by the bull of Pope Alexander III dated 10 Jul 1175[640].  The date of the original foundation is not known, but took place after 1116 when Adela’s husband was still living.  A charter dated 1134 records that “domina Aelidis de Buglis et filii eius Lancelinus...et Manasses et eorum soror Beatrix” donated “terram...in territorio Harmarum” to Trie Sainte-Marie[641].  “Willelmus de Merloto et frater meus Rainaldus antequam filium vel filiam haberet” granted property to “Manasserius de Bullis avunculus noster”, with the consent of “Adelisa matre sua et fratribus suis Lancelino atque Rainaldo”, by charter dated 1167[642].  The necrology of Saint-Nicolas records the death "XVIII Kal Feb" of "Lancelinus de Buglis et Adeliz uxor eius", adding that "filii eorum Manasses atque Lancelinus, Teobaldus et Rainaldus" donated property in Fouquerolles for them[643].  It is not clear which of the spouses died on the date mentioned.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[644], Adela married firstly Aubry [I] de Mello, son of --- de Mello & his wife ---.  Presumably this hypothesis is based on the charter dated to before 1107 under which [her husband] "Albericus…vocabatur Paganus de Marlo" donated milling revenue “de Hescerens, que de feodo comitis Domni martini erat” to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "uxore sua Adalaide" whose dowry it was[645].  However, that document could indicate that Adela belonged to a family which had been enfeoffed with the property in question by the comte de Dammartin.  It appears that the hypothesis is unlikely to be correct as Agnes, wife of Lancelin, did not name her son Aubry de Mello in her foundation of the priory of Wariville which names her children by her supposed second husband.  m LANCELIN [II] de Beauvais, son of LANCELIN [I] de Beauvais & his wife --- (-after 1116).  Seigneur de Dammartin: Suger's Vita Ludovici names "Lancelinum Bulensem Domni Martini dominum" among those who opposed King Louis VI, dated to [1111][646].  The fact that he was not accorded the comital title suggests that he was administrator of the county of Dammartin, maybe on behalf of the count who was a minor (presumably Comte Hugues [II]). 

d)         EUSTACHIE .  "Comes Hugo de Domnomartino" founded the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "uxor…mea Roaidis…et filius meus Petrus et filie mee Basilia, Adalaidis, Eustachia", by charter dated 1081[647]

3.         EUSTACHIE de Dammartin (-23 Feb ----).  "Odo filius comitis Manassæ" donated a family of servants to "Carnotensi monasterio Sancti Petri", with the support of "fratre meo Hugone ac sorore nostra Eustachia", for the souls of "patre nostro Manasse et…nostra matre Constantia", by charter dated 9 Aug before 1060 "in palatio Meleduni castri"[648].  “Aweten filiam Eustachie filie comitis Manasse” donated “decimam omnium que Rodini” [Rosny] to Saint-Wandrille, with the consent of “fratrum suorum”, for anniversaries for “Guillelmo viro et supradicta matre eius Eustachia, pro viro in octuis festiuitatis omnium sanctorum, pro patre (sic) in crastino festiuitatis sancti Mathei”, by undated charter[649]m ---.  [Three or more] children: 

a)         AWETEN .  “Aweten filiam Eustachie filie comitis Manasse” donated “decimam omnium que Rodini” [Rosny] to Saint-Wandrille, with the consent of “fratrum suorum”, for anniversaries for “Guillelmo viro et supradicta matre eius Eustachia, pro viro in octuis festiuitatis omnium sanctorum, pro patre (sic) in crastino festiuitatis sancti Mathei”, by undated charter[650]m GUILLAUME, son of --- (-8 Nov ----). 

b)         sons .  “Aweten filiam Eustachie filie comitis Manasse” donated “decimam omnium que Rodini” [Rosny] to Saint-Wandrille, with the consent of “fratrum suorum”, for anniversaries for “Guillelmo viro et supradicta matre eius Eustachia, pro viro in octuis festiuitatis omnium sanctorum, pro patre (sic) in crastino festiuitatis sancti Mathei”, by undated charter[651]

 

 

The following person has not been identified.  It is chronologically impossible that he was Lancelin [II] de Beauvais Seigneur de Dammartin.  Clémence, second wife of Renaud [III] Comte de Clermont, presumably held the title “Ctss de Dammartin” through an earlier marriage to a comte de Dammartin.  If she had been the daughter of a comte de Dammartin, she would not have borne the comital title.  If that is correct, the chronology suggests that her earlier husband could have been Hugues [II] Comte de Dammartin who is named above.  There is no indication that any of Clémence’s direct paternal or maternal ancestors had any family connection with the earlier comtes de Dammartin. 

 

1.         --- de Dammartin (-before [1135])Comte de Dammartinm as her first husband, CLEMENCE de Bar, daughter of RENAUD I Comte de Bar & his wife Gisèle de Vaudémont ([1123/27]-after 20 Jan 1182).  She married secondly ([1135]) as his second wife, Renaud [III] Comte de Clermont, who was Comte de Dammartin, de iure uxorisThe Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis records that "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" married "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns"[652].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to "comites de Claromonte Belvacensi" as descended from "una…sorore eiusdem comitis [=comes Barri iunior Raynaldus]"[653].  Her birth date range is estimated based on the date of her parents' marriage.  [“Radulfus Oysardi filius” donated property at Creil to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, and the nuns obtained the consent of "comitem Rainaldum Claromontensem…uxor eius Clementia, filia…ipsius Margarita", by charter dated to [1119][654].  The dating of this document is problematic: while the presence of Marguerite suggests that she was still unmarried, the date is inconsistent with the estimated birth date of Clémence.  It should be noted that Mathon dates the consent given by Comte Renaud to [1153], although he does not state why he says this[655].  If that dating is correct, the witness would have been Renaud’s daughter Marguerite by his second marriage, although it is unclear why she would have been singled out for giving consent without her brothers and sisters.]  Louis VII King of France confirmed what “episcopus Parisiensis et Guillelmus Lupus frater eius et comes Damni-Martini Renaudus cum uxore sua” donated to Chaalis “per concessum Adelizæ de Bulis et filiorum eius Lancelini...et fratrum suorum” and the donation of land “apud Hermenovillam et...moriens juxta Villam-novam” made by “Joscelinus de Damno-Martino”, by charter dated 1138[656].  The property the subject of the first-named donation is not specified in the charter.  However, a possibly linked charter dated to [1137] records that “Willelmus Lupus Silvanectensis” donated “locum...in quo situm est cœnobium...[et] usum totius Espioniæ et Beeley”, with the support of “uxore mea Adelvia, filioque meo majore...Guidone” and sealed by “fratris mei Stephani Parisiensis episc.[657].  The charter dated 1138 also provides a possible indication of Clémence’s family origin: the joint donation suggests a joint interest in the property donated, and so a connection with the family of the bouteillers de Senlis (to which Guillaume “le Loup” and his brother Etienne Bishop of Paris belonged).  A charter dated 1144 confirmed a donation by "Rainaldus Claromontensis comes" to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "Clementia uxor prædicti comitis cum filio suo Guidone"[658].  An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[659].  "Rainaldus comes de Claromonte et Clemencia uxor eius et Widdo eorum filius" confirmed donations to Saint-Leu d’Esserant made by "Albericus…Paganus…comites de Donno Martino…pater suus Hugo de Claromonte et Margarita uxor eius et comites Cestrences Hugo et Richardus", on the advice of "uxoris meæ Adæ", by charter dated 1152[660].  Louvet notes a donation to the priory of Gournay-sur-Aronde made by “Rainal Comte de Clermont et Clemence sa femme” which was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse[661].  Louis VII King of France confirmed an agreement between Eudes Prior of Saint-Denis and "Donni Martini comitissam Clementiam" who relinquished rights “in Trenbleio” by charter dated 1153[662].  Mathieu quotes a charter of Manassès Bishop of Meaux, dated to [1157], which records property first donated to Chaalis by “Domnimartini comitissa Clementia, laudante viro suo Renaldo de Clarimonte” as well as her donation of rights of way and use of wood “in omnia terra” belonging to “consulatum Domnimartini[663]Clementia comitissa de Domno Martino cum liberis meis” renounced rights over “villa Trembliaco” after disputes between the abbey of Saint-Denis and “antecessores nostros comites de Dompno Martino”, litigated before “regis Ludovici”, by undated charter (dated to [1153/62]), witnessed by “Ansoldus de Claromonte et Petrus nepos eius, Galterus de Alneto...[664]

 

2.         JOSCELIN de Dammartin (-before 1138).  Louis VII King of France confirmed what “episcopus Parisiensis et Guillelmus Lupus frater eius et comes Damni-Martini Renaudus cum uxore sua” donated to Chaalis “per concessum Adelizæ de Bulis et filiorum eius Lancelini...et fratrum suorum” and the donation of land “apud Hermenovillam et...moriens juxta Villam-novam” made by “Joscelinus de Damno-Martino”, by charter dated 1138[665].  It is possible that Joscelin was the younger brother of the unnamed Comte de Dammartin whose wife was Clémence. 

 

3.         RORIC [Réry] de Dammartin (-[1157/60]).  Seigneur de Dammartin: "Dominus Roricus de Domno Martino ad extrema vite sue perveniens" became a monk at Saint-Leu d’Esserent and donated harvest “in molendino suo de Stagno apud Lusarchias”, with the consent of "uxor eius Petronilla et filius eius Willelmus" by charter dated to [1157] or [1160][666]m PETRONILLE, daughter of ---.  "Dominus Roricus de Domno Martino ad extrema vite sue perveniens" became a monk at Saint-Leu d’Esserent and donated harvest “in molendino suo de Stagno apud Lusarchias”, with the consent of "uxor eius Petronilla et filius eius Willelmus" by charter dated to [1157] or [1160][667].  Roric & his wife had one child: 

a)         GUILLAUME .  "Dominus Roricus de Domno Martino ad extrema vite sue perveniens" became a monk at Saint-Leu d’Esserent and donated harvest “in molendino suo de Stagno apud Lusarchias”, with the consent of "uxor eius Petronilla et filius eius Willelmus" by charter dated to [1157] or [1160][668]

 

 

The parentage of the following person, the earliest recorded member of the Dammartin families in England, is not known.  According to Domesday Descendants, he was the son of Hugues [I] Comte de Dammartin[669], but it is unclear whether this suggestion is based on a specific source.  The probable descent from him of Aubry [II] Comte de Dammartin (see the next section) does suggest that Eudes was related to the earlier comital family of Dammartin, although it is also possible that he was a knight who took his name from the castle of Dammartin but was either unrelated, or related only distantly, to the comital family.  The name Manassès, used among the successors of Eudes in England, was associated with the earlier comital family but it would be unsafe to draw any firm conclusions about a family relationship from this single onomastic connection. 

 

1.         EUDES de Dammartin (-before [1129/30])"...Odo de Domino Martino..." witnessed the charter dated 1113 which records that "Rohes", wife of Richard son of Earl Gilbert, donated property to Bec Sainte-Marie and St. Neot of Eynulfisbury[670].  The Testa de Nevill includes a writ of King John dated 1212 which records that King Henry I granted "Mendlesh" in Suffolk to "Odoni de Danmartin" and that it was then held by "Roberto…de Burgate…cum uxore sua heredi Willelmi de Danmartin"[671].  He is not named in the 1129/30 Pipe Roll (which records his wife), so presumably had died before that date.

B.      COMTES de DAMMARTIN

 

 

Some time after the death of Renaud [de Clermont] Comte de Dammartin, second husband of Clémence who is shown in the previous section, Louis VII King of France assumed direct control over the county of Dammartin.  This is confirmed by a charter dated 1176, under which King Louis VII exchanged property with Paris Hôtel-Dieu.  The charter noted that, when he had held the castle of Dammartin (“quando castri domni Martini dominium habebamus”), the king had donated “grangiam inter Mintriacum et Moriacum sitam” but that he had later returned the castle [of Dammartin] and grange to “Alberico” (“postquam vero Alberico predictum castrum cum predicta grangia reddidimus”) (who had returned “Firmitate” [to the king]) and now needed to compensate Hôtel-Dieu with another property[672].  “Alberico” is identified as Aubry [II] Comte de Dammartin who is named below.  The precise circumstances and dating of the king’s acquisition of Dammartin are unknown, but it may have been triggered by a disputed succession.  Comte Renaud had presumably retained the county for life, de iure uxoris, but his sons by Clémence would have had no hereditary right of succession.  The nearest known direct heiress to the county appears to have been Adela, daughter of Hugues [I] Comte de Dammartin and widow of Lancelin [II] de Beauvais, who was still alive in the early 1160s.  However, a charter dated 1175 hints that the inheritance of Dammartin was disputed: King Louis VII exempted "villa...Laniacum Siccum" [Lagny-le-Sec] from duties (“gistum”) which had been “privilegium comitis Petri, qui fuit comes Dunni-Martini”, claimed by "Willermus de Merloto et socii sui de terra Domni-Martini partiarii" [Guillaume Seigneur de Mello] who had been refused by judgment “in curia nostra”, by charter dated 1175[673].  This Guillaume Seigneur de Mello was the son of Dreux [II] de Mello, whose wife was a daughter of Lancelin [II] de Beauvais and Adela de Dammartin.  The 1175 document provides no indication of the reasons for Guillaume’s claim having been refused, although by that time Aubry [II] had been established as comte de Dammartin for several years. 

 

The question remains: why was Aubry [II] chosen to receive the county of Dammartin?  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the person shown below as Aubry [I] was the son of Aubry de Mello & his wife Adela ---[674].  This is presumably speculative based only on the name “Aubry” and the hypothesis that his mother was the same person as Adela de Dammartin who later married Lancelin [II] de Beauvais.  Mathieu suggests that the king’s candidate (in other words Aubry [II] Comte de Dammartin) must have belonged to the Dammartin line in order to prevail over challenges from other claimants[675].  His theory is that Aubry [I] was the same person as the English Aubry [I] de Dammartin, son of Eudes [I] de Dammartin who had emigrated to England.  He bases this on the undated charter, which Mathieu dates to [Mar] 1187, under which Henry II King of England granted “manerium de Norton” to “comiti Alberico de Dammartin et Reginaldo filio suo”, as the same property had been granted to other members of the English Dammartin family by Henry I King of England[676].  In addition, the sources quoted below indicate that Comte Aubry [II] held other English properties which were previously associated with the English Dammartin family.  One difficulty is that the English Aubry [I] de Dammartin does not appear to have been his father’s oldest son, which suggests that Aubry [II] could not have inherited the county as the most senior surviving male heir of the family.  As noted below, one possibility is that Aubry [I]’s wife and the mother of Aubry [II], was heiress of Dammartin.  If that is correct, she could not have been the daughter of Clémence Ctss de Dammartin whose daughter Mathilde later married Comte Aubry [II].  Could she have been an otherwise unrecorded younger sister of Hugues [II] Comte de Dammartin? 

 

 

1.         AUBRY (-after 1129).  Chambrier de France 1122 to 1129[677].  The English properties held by Aubry [II] Comte de Dammartin suggest a close relationship with the Dammartin families in England who are recorded holding the same lands.  The father of Comte Aubry is named “Albericus camerarius” in the charter dated 1162 quoted below[678].  Given the English connection, the obvious suggestion is that Comte Aubry was the son of the English Aubry [I] de Dammartin.  However, the chronology is not ideal for the latter to have been the chambrier who was named between 1122 and 1129.  As indicated in  UNTITLED ENGLISH NOBILITY D-K, the English Aubry [I] was adult during the later years of King Henry I.  However, as one of the younger sons of Eudes [I] de Dammartin, it is unclear whether he was old enough to have held the position of chambrier in 1122. 

 

2.         AUBRY [I] (-after 1162).  One possibility to avoid the chronological difficulty highlighted above, is that there were two chambriers named Aubry.  [Chambrier de France 1155/62].  This appointment is suggested by the charter dated 1162 under which "Amalricus...Silvanectensis episcopus" confirmed the donation of “usum...totius forestæ Espioniæ de Bealci” made to Charlieu by “Albericus camerarius et filius eius Albericus comes de Dammartin”, with the consent of “Johanne scancione regis et uxore sua Helisendi et Petro filio suo[679].  Delaite says that Aubry [I], father of Comte Aubry [II], was “suivant le père Anselme, chambrier de France en 1155 et 1160[680].  In fact, Père Anselme lists “Alberic I...comte de Dammartin, chambrier de France”, referring only to the 1162 charter and adding that he was still alive in 1181, but cites no references dated 1155 or 1160[681].  Luchaire, in his review of the royal officers, comments that “cet Aubri n’apparaît, à notre connaissance, sur aucune charte de Louis VII[682].  He traces the reference to Aubry as chambrier to Ducange who, Luchaire suggests, misinterpreted the 1162 charter[683].  Luchaire names Mathieu [II] Comte de Beaumont as chambrier from 1151 to 1174.  If Luchaire is correct, the reference to “camerarius” in the 1162 charter still needs explaining.  If Comte Aubry [II] was the son of the English Aubry [I] de Dammartin, the chronology of his life suggests that the latter was too young to have been the chambrier who was named between 1122 and 1129 (see above).  One possibility therefore is that the appointment oscillated between Comte Mathieu [II] and Aubry [I] during the 1150s/1160s, without leaving a trace in the surviving charters.  m ---.  The name of Aubry’s wife is not known.  As discussed in the introduction to the present section, one possibility to explain the appointment of Aubry [II] as Comte de Dammartin is that his mother was heiress of the county.  If that is correct, she could not have been the daughter of Clémence Ctss de Dammartin whose daughter Mathilde later married Comte Aubry [II].  Assuming that Aubry [I] was the same person as the English Aubry [I] de Dammartin, the chronology of the family suggests that the mother of Aubry [II] was not his wife Matilda, who is shown in  UNTITLED ENGLISH NOBILITY D-K, but an earlier otherwise unrecorded wife.  Aubry [I] & his wife had one child:

AUBRY [II], son of AUBRY [I] & his wife --- (-Lillebonne 20 Sep 1200, bur Jumièges).  Seigneur de la Ferté-Alais.  Comte de Dammartin.  "Amalricus...Silvanectensis episcopus" confirmed the donation of “usum...totius forestæ Espioniæ de Bealci” made to Charlieu by “Albericus camerarius et filius eius Albericus comes de Dammartin”, with the consent of “Johanne scancione regis et uxore sua Helisendi et Petro filio suo”, by charter dated 1162[685].  “Albericus de Domnomartino eiusdem Feritatis dominus” witnessed the charter dated to [1166] given by the prior of La Ferté to Yerres abbey[686].  “Aubericus dominus Feritatis et uxor mea Mahaudis et filius meus Renaudus” donated dead wood “de Amaro Nemore domui de Retollu” to the church of Yerre by undated charter[687].  Mathieu dates this charter to [1160/77][688]: maybe it can be dated more narrowly to [1168/75].  By charter dated 1171 Louis VII King of France attested that, after a dispute between the king and "Albericum de Firmitate" concerning a serf “Guillermo de Villiers” and his family claimed by Aubry after the king had granted him “castellum Firmitatis...in feodum”, the serf in question had been freed[689].  "Aubri Count of Dammartin" confirmed the grant of Musewell to Missenden abbey made by “Guy and Joan de Ryhale”, with the consent of “his son and heir Renaud”, by charter dated to [1175][690].  Aubry returned La Ferté-Alais to the king [1171/76]: by a charter dated 1176 King Louis VII exchanged property with Paris Hôtel-Dieu, noting that, when he had held the castle of Dammartin (“quando castri domni Martini dominium habebamus”), the king had donated “grangiam inter Mintriacum et Moriacum sitam” but that he had later returned the castle [of Dammartin] and grange to “Alberico” (“postquam vero Alberico predictum castrum cum predicta grangia reddidimus”) (who had returned “Firmitate” [to the king]) and needed to compensate Hôtel-Dieu with another property[691].  "Albericus comes Domni Martini et Raynaldus filius meus comes Boloniæ et Matildis uxor mea comitissa" donated property to Dammartin Saint-Pierre by charter dated 1185[692].  The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Odo de Danmartin xx s, comes Albericus de Danmartin xx s, et in perdone xx s" in Norfolk, Suffolk in [1186/87][693].  Lord of Piddington, Oxfordshire: the 1186/87 Pipe Roll names “Comes Albericus de Dammartin” with one knight’s fee “pro wasto in Pidinton” in Oxfordshire and "Odo de Dammartin, Comes Albericus de Dammartin" in adjacent entries in Norfolk and Suffolk, and in Surrey[694].  Seigneur de Lillebonne [en-Normandie].  "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[695].  The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "comes Albericus" paying "iv s ix d" in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and of "Willelmus de Danmartin, Albericus de Danmartin", each paying "x s, i militem" in Norfolk, Suffolk[696].  The 1194 Pipe Roll records revenue “de Pidinton que fuit comitis de Dammartin” in Oxfordshire and "terra que fuit comitis de Dammartin in Bichhamsteda" [granted to Eudes [II] de Dammartin in 1152/53] in Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire[697].  “Albericus comes Domnimartini” donated revenue from harvest “in grangia mea de Mintriaco” to Paris Hôtel-Dieu, confirmed and sealed by “Mathildis comitisse Domnimartini uxoris mee et…Reginaldo comitis Bolonie filii mei”, by charter dated 20 Sep 1200[698].  "A. comes Domni Martini" donated property to Saint-Leu d’Esserent by charter dated 20 Sep 1200, signed by "M. comitisse Dampni Martini uxoris mee et…R. comitis Bolonie filii nostri", which records the donor’s death “hac...die...apud Lilleboniam[699].  An anonymous continuation of the Chronicle of Robert of Mont-Saint-Michel records the death "XIII Kal Oct" in 1200 of "Albericus Dammartini Comes" and his burial "apud Gemeticum"[700]

[m firstly ([1159/60]) as her third husband, JOAN Basset, widow firstly of GUY FitzPain de Ridale, and secondly of SIMON de Gerardmoulins, daughter of --- (-[1160/62]).  This possible first marriage of Aubry [II] Comte de Dammartin is indicated by his later holding of Piddington in Oxfordshire (see above) which the documents quoted below show was held by Joan Basset.  The third husband of Joan Basset could not have been Aubry [I], father of Comte Aubry [II], as her husband was called “comes” in the documents quoted below.  If this suggested identity of the third husband of Joan Basset is correct, Joan must have died soon after [1160].  Malcolm IV King of Scotland donated “villam P[iddington] in Oxenfordscire” to Oxford St. Frideswide, noting that “Iohanna...soror Thome Bassett” was tenant for life, by charter dated to [1159][701].  King Henry II confirmed the donation of “villam de Pydentona in Oxenfordscira” to Oxford St. Frideswide made by King Malcolm IV, noting “Iohanna soror Thome Bassett” as tenant for life, by charter dated to [1160][702]William Reedy, in the introduction to his collection of Basset charters, states that Joan, sister of Thomas Basset, married Aubry de Dammartin as her third husband[703]Joan’s first marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1160] under which the abbot of Missenden surrendered surrendered rights in Piddington, donated by “Albrici comitis de Damartyn & Iohane de Pidingtona, que fuit sponsa Guidonis de Riala”, to Oxford St. Frideswide by charter dated to [1160][704].  The primary source which confirms Joan’s second marriage has not been identified.  "Aubri Count of Dammartin" confirmed the grant of Musewell to Missenden abbey made by “Guy and Joan de Ryhale”, with the consent of “his son and heir Renaud”, by charter dated to [1175][705].] 

m [secondly] ([after 1162]) MATHILDE de Clermont, daughter of RENAUD Comte de Clermont-en-Beauvaisis & his second wife Clémence de Bar (-after [May/Jul] 1218).  "…Matildis soror mea…" consented to the donation by "Radulfus…comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1162[706]"R…comes Clarimontis et dominus Brituliensis…et Aeliz comitissam uxorem meam" confirmed the donation to the church of Breteuil by "Sangalo de Garda Malgerii, Henricus filius eius" by undated charter, witnessed by "Albericus Domni Martini comes et Mahaux soror mea, Domni Martini comitissa, Rainaldus castellanus Britulii…"[707].  “Aubericus dominus Feritatis et uxor mea Mahaudis et filius meus Renaudus” donated dead wood “de Amaro Nemore domui de Retollu” to the church of Yerre by undated charter[708].  Mathieu dates this charter to [1160/77][709]: maybe it can be dated more narrowly to [1168/75].  "A. comes Domni Martini" donated property to Saint-Leu d’Esserent by charter dated 20 Sep 1200, signed by "M. comitisse Dampni Martini uxoris mee et…R. comitis Bolonie filii nostri"[710].  King Philippe II confirmed the donation made by Mathilde jadis comtesse de Dammartin” to the nuns of Parc near Crespi of revenue from “la prévôté de Crespi”, which the king had previously granted to her in return for her rights over the county of Clermont after the death of [her great-nephew] Thibaud VI Comte de Blois, by charter dated [May/Jul] 1218[711]

Aubry [II] & his [second] wife had [eight] children: 

1.         RENAUD de Dammartin ([1165/70]-Château de Goulet 21 Apr 1217, bur Boulogne).  His parentage is confirmed by the anonymous continuation of the Chronicle of Robert of Mont-Saint-Michel which records that "filius eius Reginaldus Comes Boloniæ" donated property to Jumièges for the soul of "Albericus Dammartini Comes"[712].  “Aubericus dominus Feritatis et uxor mea Mahaudis et filius meus Renaudus” donated dead wood “de Amaro Nemore domui de Retollu” to the church of Yerre by undated charter[713].  Mathieu dates this charter to [1160/77][714]: maybe it can be dated more narrowly to [1168/75].  "Albericus comes Domni Martini et Raynaldus filius meus comes Boloniæ et Matildis uxor mea comitissa" donated property to Dammartin Saint-Pierre by charter dated 1185[715].  "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[716]He kidnapped his future second wife and kept her at the château de Riste in Lorraine, where he lured her fiancé (Arnoul de Guines Seigneur d'Ardres) and arranged his arrest by Albert de Hièrges Bishop of Verdun[717].  He succeeded in 1192 as Comte de Boulogne, de iure uxoris"A. comes Domni Martini" donated property to Saint-Leu d’Esserent by charter dated 20 Sep 1200, signed by "M. comitisse Dampni Martini uxoris mee et…R. comitis Bolonie filii nostri"[718]He succeeded his father in 1200 as Comte de DammartinReginaldus comes Bolonie” donated property to Jumièges, for the soul of “Alberici patris mei comitis Dampnimartini in eadem ecclesia sepulti”, with the consent of “Yde uxoris mee comitisse Bolonie, Radulfi et Simonis fratrum meorum et sororum mearum”, by charter dated [19 Sep/Dec] 1200[719]Philippe II King of France installed him in 1205 as Comte d'Aumâle and in 1209 as Comte de Mortain.  He swore homage to John King of England in 1212, and his assets in France were confiscated in King Philippe II.  He was captured after the battle of Bouvines in 1214 and imprisoned at the château de Goulet where he later committed suicide[720]m firstly (divorced before 1190) as her first husband, MARIE, daughter of [GUY [II] Seigneur de Châtillon-sur-Marne] & his wife Alix de Dreux [Capet] (-after Mar 1242).  The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium refers to the wife of "Reinaldus filius Alberti de Dominio-Martini comitis" as "sorore Waltheri de Castellione", specifying that he left her in order to marry "Boloniem comitissam Idam"[721].  It should be noted that none of the sources quoted in this section specify that Marie was the daughter of Guy [II] Seigneur de Châtillon.  It is possible therefore that she was born from her mother’s third marriage.  She married secondly ([1197]) Robert de Vieuxpont Seigneur de Courville, and thirdly (before 1 Oct 1213) Jean [III] Comte de Vendôme.  "M. domina Curveville" referred to "vivente domino meo R. de Veteri Ponte" in a charter dated to [1205][722].  "Maria domina de Corbavilla" gave security for "forteritia de Lavardin...quamdiu neptis mea Aales ibidem habebit dotalitium suum" to Philippe IV King of France by charter dated Feb 1212[723].  "Johannes comes Vindocinensis" relinquished rights over "prepositos de Masengeio" to Chartres, with the consent of “Marie uxoris mee sororis comitis Sancti Pauli”, by charter dated Sep 1213[724].  "Maria domina Curveville quondam comitissa Vindocinensis" donated revenue “in prepositura Curveville” to the priory of Saint-Nicolas de Courville, with the consent of "Ivo de Veteri Ponte miles filius meus dominus Curveville", by charter dated Mar 1242[725]m secondly ([1185 or before or Apr 1190]) as her fourth husband, IDA de Flandre Ctss de Boulogne, divorced wife (firstly) of MATHIEU ---, widow (secondly) of GERHARD van Geldern and (thirdly) of BERTHOLD IV Herzog von Zähringen, daughter of MATTHIEU de Flandres Comte de Boulogne & his first wife Marie de Blois Ctss de Boulogne ([1160/61]-21 Apr 1216, bur Boulogne).  The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Idam…et Mathildem" as the two daughters of "Matheus [comiti Boloniensi]" & his wife, specifying that Ida married "primus…Gerardo comiti de Ghelra, deinde Bertoldo Cheringiorum duci, postea Rainaldo comiti Dommi-Martini in Francia"[726].  The date of her fourth marriage is indicated by the charter dated 1185 under which "Albericus comes Domni Martini et Raynaldus filius meus comes Boloniæ et Matildis uxor mea comitissa" donated property to Dammartin Saint-Pierre[727], demonstrating that Ida’s husband already bore the title comte de Boulogne at that date.  However, this date is inconsistent with the date of death of Ida’s third husband, estimated to be 8 Sep 1186, which suggests that either the charter is misdated or that Berthold Herzog von Zähringen died a year earlier.  The Chronica Andrensis records the death in1216 of "Ida Bolonie comitissa in Flandria" and her burial at Boulogne[728].  Comte Renaud & his second wife had one child: 

a)         MATHILDE de Dammartin (-[9 Oct 1261/8 Feb 1263]).  The Chronica Andrensis names "Mathilde…filia…Reinaldi quondam comitis Bolonie" as the wife of "Philippus frater Ludovici regis Gallie"[729].  She succeeded in 1223 as Ctss de Dammartin and in 1227 as Ctss de Boulogne.  "Mahaud comitissa Bolonie et Clarimontis…et Johanne filie nostre" donated property to the abbey of Sainte-Hoïlde, for the souls of "bone memorie Philippi condam comitis Bolonie et liberorum nostrorum", by charter dated Apr 1239[730].  The De Rebus Hispaniæ of Rodericus Ximenes records the marriage of "Aldefonsum", son of "Aldefonsum" & his wife, and "Matillam…de partibus Franciæ, Boloniæ Comitissam"[731].  “Alfonsus, filius…regis Portugaliæ, comes Bolonie” recorded his agreements with “Thomam comitem et Johannam eius uxorem comitissam Flandrensem” by charter dated Nov 1241 which names “…M. comitissa Bolonie uxor nostra[732].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated Jun 1240 under which "Aufonsus filius regis Portigalis comes Bolonie et Matildis uxor sua comitissa Bolonie" confirmed a donation by "Johanni de Bello Monte domini regis cambellano et Ysabelli Buticularie uxori sue"[733].  The testament of “Mathildis comitissa Boloniæ”, dated Mar 1241 (presumably O.S.), bequeathed property to “marito meo Alphonso filio...Regis Portugaliæ comiti...Boloniæ” and appointed “ipsum comitem maritum meum, et...Robertum episcopum Belovacensem et...consanguineum meum dominum Matthæum de Tria...et dominum Philippum de Nantholio consanguineum meum” as her executors, with the approval of “Gualtherus de Cestellione et...Joanna eius uxor[734].  A charter dated Nov 1242 records a declaration by "Mathildis comtissa Bolonie…cum…marito nostro Alfonso filio…regis Portugalie comiti Bolonie" relating to her testament and names "Gaucherus de Castellione et Johanna filia nostra uxor eiusdem, heredes nostri"[735]The Chronicon Savigniacense records the death in 1258 (presumably O. S.) of "Matildis Comitissa Boloniæ" and the reversion of her county to the king[736]The Breve Chronicon Alcobacense records that "comitissa Bolonie" was still alive when "rex Dionisius" was born (9 Oct 1261, see below), but had died before the birth of his brother Afonso (8 Feb 1263, see below), and it was therefore claimed that Diniz was illegitimate but Afonso legitimate[737]m firstly (contract Compiègne, Oise Aug 1201, contract Saint-Germain-en-Laye May 1210, 1216) PHILIPPE "Hurepel" de France, son of PHILIPPE II "Auguste" King of France & his third wife Agnes von Andechs-Merano (Jul 1200-killed in a tournament Corbie, Somme 14 or 18 Jan 1234, bur église de l'Abbaye royale de Saint-Denis).  m secondly (1235, divorced 1253) as his first wife, Infante dom AFONSO de Portugal, son of dom AFONSO II "o Gordo" King of Portugal & his wife Infanta doña Urraca de Castilla (Coimbra 5 May 1210-Lisbon 16 Feb 1279, bur Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria de Alcobaça).  He succeeded his brother in 1248 as AFONSO III “o Restaurador” King of Portugal and the Algarve. 

2.         RAOUL de Dammartin (-after [19 Sep/Dec] 1200).  “Reginaldus comes Bolonie” donated property to Jumièges, for the soul of “Alberici patris mei comitis Dampnimartini in eadem ecclesia sepulti”, with the consent of “Yde uxoris mee comitisse Bolonie, Radulfi et Simonis fratrum meorum et sororum mearum”, by charter dated [19 Sep/Dec] 1200[738].  

3.         SIMON de Dammartin (-21 Sep 1239, bur Valoires).  “Reginaldus comes Bolonie” donated property to Jumièges, for the soul of “Alberici patris mei comitis Dampnimartini in eadem ecclesia sepulti”, with the consent of “Yde uxoris mee comitisse Bolonie, Radulfi et Simonis fratrum meorum et sororum mearum”, by charter dated [19 Sep/Dec] 1200[739].  The Chronicon Andrensis names "comes Bolonie Reinaldus et Simon frater eius", specifying that Simon married "filiam comitis Pontivi unicam"[740].  Comte d'Aumâle 1205/11.  Comte de Ponthieu et de Montreuil 1231.

4.         ALIX de Dammartin (-after 1237).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.   Her parentage and marriage are indicated by an enquiry in 1267 which adjudged property of “Philippus olim comes Bolonie et...Matildis” to “Matheus comes Domni-Martini, domini Guillelmus de Fienes, Baldoinus de Fienes, Michael de Fienes, Ingerannus de Pinquegniaco et Renaudus de Pinquegniaco, heredes comitisse Matildis Bolonie[741].  Her descendants inherited the county of Dammartin.  m (1190) JEAN [I] Châtelain de Trie, son of ENGUERRAND [II] "Aiguillon" de Trie Seigneur de Moncy & his wife Heddiva [Basilie] de Moncy (-before 1237). 

5.         AGNES de Dammartin (-after 10 Apr 1244).  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by an enquiry in 1267 which adjudged property of “Philippus olim comes Bolonie et...Matildis” to “Matheus comes Domni-Martini, domini Guillelmus de Fienes, Baldoinus de Fienes, Michael de Fienes, Ingerannus de Pinquegniaco et Renaudus de Pinquegniaco, heredes comitisse Matildis Bolonie[742]Willelmus filius Ingelrami dominus de Fielnes” donated property to Andres, with the consent of "uxore mea Agnete et filio meo Ingelramno", by charter dated 1 Jan 1203 witnessed by "Radulfo de Fielnes patruo meo…Joanne de Tingri…"[743].  An order dated 10 Apr 1244 relating to “manerium de Marthoc...quod fuit Enger de Fenles”, permitted “Agn. matrem ipsius Inger” to administer aspects of the property[744]m GUILLAUME de Fiennes, son of ENGUERRAND [I] de Fiennes & his wife Sibylle de Tingry--- (-[17 Oct 1239/4 Jul 1240]). 

6.         CLEMENCE de Dammartin (-after Jun 1218).  The late 13th century genealogy by Balduinus de Avennis records that "castellano Sancti-Audomari domino Wilelmoquartus filius Jacobus" married "Constantiam, sororem comitis Renaldi de Dommartin" who died childless[745].  "Clémence femme de Jacques de Prisches" ratified her husband’s sale to the abbey of Maroilles by charter dated Jun 1218[746]m [as his first wife,] JACQUES de Saint-Omer, son of GUILLAUME [IV] Châtelain de Saint-Omer Seigneur de Fauquemberques & his wife Ida d’Avesnes (-[1219/20]). 

7.         --- de Dammartin .  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by an enquiry in 1267 which adjudged property of “Philippus olim comes Bolonie et...Matildis” to “Matheus comes Domni-Martini, domini Guillelmus de Fienes, Baldoinus de Fienes, Michael de Fienes, Ingerannus de Pinquegniaco et Renaudus de Pinquegniaco, heredes comitisse Matildis Bolonie[747].  Her husband has not been identified.  m ---.  One child: 

a)         --- (-before 1267).  The chronology suggests an intervening generation between the brothers Enguerrand and Renaud and their unnamed grandmother.  It is not known whether their father or mother belonged to the Picquigny family.  m ---.  Two children: 

i)          ENGUERRAND de Picquigny .  His ancestry is indicated by an enquiry in 1267 which adjudged property of “Philippus olim comes Bolonie et...Matildis” to “Matheus comes Domni-Martini, domini Guillelmus de Fienes, Baldoinus de Fienes, Michael de Fienes, Ingerannus de Pinquegniaco et Renaudus de Pinquegniaco, heredes comitisse Matildis Bolonie[748].  He and his brother have not been placed in the main Picquigny family which is shown in  NORTHERN FRANCE NOBILITY. 

ii)         RENAUD de Picquigny .  His ancestry is indicated by an enquiry in 1267 which adjudged property of “Philippus olim comes Bolonie et...Matildis” to “Matheus comes Domni-Martini, domini Guillelmus de Fienes, Baldoinus de Fienes, Michael de Fienes, Ingerannus de Pinquegniaco et Renaudus de Pinquegniaco, heredes comitisse Matildis Bolonie[749].  He and his brother have not been placed in the main Picquigny family which is shown in  NORTHERN FRANCE NOBILITY. 

8.         [JULIANE de Dammartin (-after 1202).  "Hugo de Gornaco" donated property to Fécamp, for the souls of "Juliane uxoris mee et puerorum meorum", by charter dated 1202[750].  Her parentage is indicated only by a letter which purports to be from her granddaughter "Dame Julian Tresgoze…espouse…a Sr Robert Tresgoos le Second" to "son frère St Thomas de Cantlow, Euesque…de Hereford" which gives a confused version of the family’s lineage: "Sr Hugh de Gornaye" married "la reyne Blanch" [widow of Louis VIII King of France, such a second marriage being impossible chronologically] and had "un fils…Hugh…nostre ayle", who married "la soer le count Renaud de Boloyng"[751].  Genealogical details in other parts of the letter can be corroborated against other sources.  It is therefore difficult to decide whether the entry relating to the wife of Hugues [V] should be dismissed in the same way as the supposed marriage of his father to the widow of King Louis VIII or whether it is factually correct.  The absence of Juliane’s descendants from the enquiry in 1267, which names the heirs of Mathilde de Dammartin Ctss de Boulogne descended from her paternal aunts (see above), suggests that this alleged parentage of the wife of Hugues [V] de Gournay is incorrect.  m HUGUES [V] Seigneur de Gournay, son of HUGUES [IV] Seigneur de Gournay & his second wife Mélisende de Coucy (-25 Oct [1214]).]

c)         HUGUES de Montmirail .  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis specifies that one daughter (unnamed, mentioned second) of "Andreas comes de Rameruth" married "Iohannes vicecomes de Maruel" by whom she had "Manassem de Plaierris et sororem eius, quam duxit Helyas de Monte-Mirail, de qua nati sunt Galcherus et Andreas et Hugo Prorulliensis abbas..."[942].  Abbot of [Saint-Pierre de Preuilly?]. 

 

 

The parentage of the following person has not been traced.  The charter dated 1225 quoted below records a family relationship between Jean [II] de Montmirail Comte de Chartres (see above) and Ada’s children, Milon [VII] Seigneur de Noyers and Elisabeth [de Neuilly].  Considering that these children were born from different husbands, the relationship must have been through their mother Ada.  Europäische Stammtafeln suggests her as the possible daughter of André de Montmirail, and so paternal aunt of Jean [II][943].  However, there are too many possibilities (either through the male or female lines) covered by the imprecise term “consanguineus” to speculate sensibly on the exact relationship.

J.      SEIGNEURS de MONCY

 

 

According to Eugène Müller (the editor of the cartulary of Saint-Leu d’Esserent), the place referred to in the sources quoted below as "Monceio" (or other variants) was Mouchy le Châtel, canton de Noailles, in the present-day French département of Oise[948].  Auguste Molinier also identifies it as the same place[949].  According to Le Prévost,"la terre qui a donné son nom à cette illustre famille est Monchi-Cayeux près Saint-Pol en Artois"[950].  This appears unlikely to be correct as it some distance from the area in which the family operated.  In secondary sources, the name is translated from the Latin either as Moncy or Mouchy.  Moncy appears to be a more accurate rendering of the original.  Leblond mentions both names in his section on the family in his Nobiliaire du Beauvaisis[951]

 

 

1.         DREUX [I] de Moncy Seigneur de Moncy.  Orderic Vitalis names "Drogo de Monceio" among those who joined the First Crusade in 1096[952]William of Tyre names "Drogo de Monci" among those who took part in the siege of Antioch in 1098[953]He was a knight in the First Crusade[954].  He was punished for blasphemy by Wulfric of Haselbury[955].  Suger's Vita Ludovici records a dispute between the abbot of Saint-Denis and "Burchardum...dominum Monmorenciacensem" during the course of which the future Louis VI King of France, together with "Matthæum Bellimontensem comitem et Drogonem Monciacensem", invaded “terram eiusdem Burchardi”, dated to [1101][956]m as her second husband, EDIVE [Edith] de Warenne, widow of GERARD de Gournay, daughter of WILLIAM [I] de Warenne Earl of Surrey & his first wife Gundred --- (-after 1155).  Guillaume of Jumièges records that ”Giraldus” left for Jerusalem “cum uxore sua Edithua sorore Willelmi comitis de Warenna”, who married secondly “Drogoni de Monceio”, by whom she had “unum filium...Drogonem[957].  Her second marriage is confirmed by Orderic Vitalis who names "Hugo filius Girardi de Gornaco" and "Drogo, vitricus eius"[958].  Dreux [I] & his wife had one child:

M.     SEIGNEURS de SAINT-SIMON

 

 

The following descent of the family of Saint-Simon from Eudes "l'Insensé" de Vermandois is fictitious.  It was fabricated in the 17th century to flatter Claude Rouvroy de Saint-Simon, favourite of Louis XIII King of France[1045].  On the basis of this genealogy, the senior branch of the family of Rouvroy adopted the name "Saint-Simon de Vermandois".  It is assumed that there is some historical accuracy in the later generations but the point at which fantasy gives way to reality is not known.  The primary sources which confirm the parentage and marriages of the members of the following family have not been identified, unless otherwise stated below.
