[Four] siblings, parents not known.  The chronology indicates the improbability that Gaudry [II] Vicomte [de Corbeil] was the same person as Gaudry [I] whose family is shown above.  Nevertheless, the unusual name suggests the likelihood of a close relationship between the two groups.  One possibility is that Guadry [II] was the son of Gaudry [I] by an otherwise unrecorded first marriage.

Common use of the name Anseau in the families suggests that Vicomte Gilbert [I] was probably related to Vicomte Anseau [I], although it is not known whether the relationship may have been through the male or female lines.

1.         --- (-bur Montmartre).  "Galterius camerarius noster" records that "patris et matris sue" were buried at Montmartre when donating revenue to the abbey, recorded in a charter dated 1190 in which Philippe II King of France confirmed the donation[111]m --- (-bur Montmartre).  "Galterius camerarius noster" records that "patris et matris sue" were buried at Montmartre when donating revenue to the abbey, recorded in a charter dated 1190 in which Philippe II King of France confirmed the donation[112]Three children:

c)         GAUTHIER de Villebéon (-[23/25] Oct 1205, bur Barbeaux abbey).  As noted above, Richemond suggests that Gauthier de Villebéon was the same person as Gauthier, brother of Geoffroy Seigneur de La Chapelle-Gauthier (see above), adding that this hypothesis provides the explanation for Gauthier’s brother Etienne being referred to as "La Chapelle" in primary sources[115].  This co-identity is also affirmed in the compilation of the cartulary of Néronville, without stating that it is based on any primary source[116].  According to Richemond, Gauthier probably inherited his fief of Villebéon, located near Nemours, from his mother, adding that it had been owned by the seigneurs de Chevry and enfeoffed by them to the sires du Bignon in the 12th century[117]Seigneur de Nemours.  Great chamberlain of France.

E.      DONJON (CORBEIL)

 

 

Donjon was located in the commune of Soisy-sur-Etioles, canton de Corbeil, in the present-day French département of Essonne[118].  The modern name since 1934 is Soisy-sur-Seine[119].  Depoin suggests that the name “de Donjon” originated in this family because it was granted custody “du donjon de Corbeil” and not after Donjon in Soisy-sur-Etioles, which he suggests received the name because it was one of the family’s holdings[120].  Moutié dismisses this last hypothesis, which he says was first proposed by Père Anselme, as untenable given that the name of the family in Latin is “de Dongolio” or “de Donjungno[121].  There appears to be no satisfactory of judging between these two contradictory theories.  Whatever the truth of the position, different members of the Donjon family also used the names Beauvais and Corbeil, as shown below.

Guidonem et Petrum de Dijon (Donjeon)”, but cites no primary source on which this information is based[220].  A charter dated 1197 records the agreement between Notre-Dame de Paris and "Petrum de Donjon" concerning "terrarum de Virsi" which had been donated “anniversarium Frederici de Donjon[221]The Scripta de Feodis of King Philippe II record “domini Guidonis et Petri de Donjone fratrum beati Guillermi Bituricensis quondam archiepiscopi” and their holdings, referring also to property which was “de dono domini Ferrici de Dongeone[222].  [m firstly ---.  No positive reference to this supposed first marriage has been found.  However, it is suggested by the chronology of Ferry’s supposed daughter Helvise, as shown below.]  [m [secondly] ---.  No positive reference to this supposed second marriage has been found.  However, it is suggested by the chronology of Ferry’s son Baudouin.  Baudouin’s birth date is estimated very approximately to [1140/55] as shown below.  The birth of Ferry’s supposed daughter Helvise is dated to [1125/35].  Assuming that Helvise was born in the later part of her range, and Baudouin in the earlier part of his, it is possible that the two were born from the same marriage.  On the other hand, if Helvise was born in the earlier part of her range and Baudouin in the later part of his, it is unlikely that they could have shared the same mother.  Another difficulty with the supposed marriages of Ferry [I] is presented by the birth date of his son Pierre, estimated to [1145/50] as shown below.  If there were no other indications, this would suggest that Pierre (and presumably also his brother Guy) was the full brother of Baudouin, born from the same mother.  However, Ferry’s known wife [Moenée] married secondly after the death of her first husband (in [1182]) and had at least one more son by her second husband.  The various sources quoted below indicate that that son was the brother of Baudouin, Guy and Pierre.  If the three brothers were born from Ferry’s marriage to Moenée, she would have been old to have given birth to another child after [1182]; if Moenée was not the mother of any of Ferry’s children, it is difficult to understand how her son by her second marriage could have been described as the brother of Ferry’s children.  m [thirdly] as her first husband, [MOENEE], daughter of ---.  She married secondly --- de Berruier.  Indications of her two marriages are provided by the Scripta de Feodis of King Philippe II which record “domini Guidonis et Petri de Donjone fratrum beati Guillermi Bituricensis quondam archiepiscopi” and their holdings”[223].  This is corroborated by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names "domina de Monte-Argisi fuit soror vel neptis illius [=Guilelmus…archiepiscopus Bituricensis]" as the wife of "Petro de Cortenaio regis Philippi patruo"[224].  Her name is confirmed only by Gallia Christiana which states that [her son by her second marriage Guillaume Archbishop of Bourges] “Guillelmus Archesiis vico Nivernensis pagi natus ex illustri genere” had “matrem...Maeniam” who had “frater Guillelmus archidiaconus Suessionensis...dictus...Eremita” who educated him[225].  No primary source is cited, so the reliability of the name cannot be judged.  Kerrebrouck refers to her as “Moenée d’Arthel”, citing an article by Estournet, but it is unlikely that this is correct[226].  Arthel is a small commune situated in canton Prémery, arrondissement Cosne-Cours.sur-Loire, département Nièvre.  No other contemporary reference to a family “d’Arthel” has been found.  Various websites refer to “Saint Guillaume d’Arthel” being born there, without providing any further details about his life[227].  It is assumed that this refers to Guillaume Berruier Archbishop of Bourges, sometimes known as “Saint Guillaume de Bourges”.  If that is correct, the village may have been the home of the Berruier family, but no other indication has been found that their name was in fact “d’Arthel”.  Ferry [II] & his [first] wife had one child: 

i)          [HELVISE de Donjon ([1120/25]-[after 1155]).  The identification of the family origin of the wife of “French Renaud” appears to be based only on the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, which records that "domina de Monte-Argisi fuit soror vel neptis illius [=Guilelmus…archiepiscopus Bituricensis]" and names her as the wife of "Petro de Cortenaio regis Philippi patruo"[228], assuming for the moment that “neptis” described the relationship not “soror”.  Guillaume Archbishop of Bourges is often referred to in secondary sources as "Guillaume de Donjon", although this name is not used in his Vita[229], but he appears to have belonged to the Berruier family: La Saussaye, in his early 17th century work on the bishops of Orléans names "Geraldus Berruyerius, frater beati Gulielmi Bituricensis archiepiscopi" as the father of Philippe Berruier who was bishop of Orléans from 1221 to 1236, citing “Historia Ecclesiæ Bituricensis” (a work which has not been identified)[230].  The primary source which confirms beyond doubt that the archbishop was the full brother of Gérard Berruier has not been identified.  Bouchet says that “on apprend de quelques chartes que [Renaud] épousa la sœur de Guy du Donjon”, but he does not cite the charters in question although he says in a later passage that she “vivoit l’an 1148 et 1155”, presumably indicating the dates of two of the charters[231]The Scripta de Feodis records the holdings of “domini Guidonis et Petri de Donjone fratrum beati Guillermi Bituricensis quondam archiepiscopi” and their holdings”[232], clearly showing that the archbishop was the brother of Guy and Pierre de Donjon.  Reading all these documents together, we can identify a list of brothers and sisters: [Hawise] wife of Renaud de Courtenay (born [1120/25]), Guy de Donjon, Pierre de Donjon (born [1145/50]), Guillaume Archbishop of Bourges, Gérard Berruier.  Clearly all five could not have shared the same mother and father.  The suggested explanation is that Ferry [I] de Donjon was the father of Renaud de Courtenay’s wife by a first marriage, and the father of Guy and Pierre de Donjon by a second marriage; after he died (date maybe estimated to after 1174), his widow married secondly the father of Gerard Berruier.  The precise identification of the father of Archbishop Guillaume (Ferry [I] de Donjon or --- Berruier?) is not necessary for the purposes of this explanation.  A continuing close family connection between the Donjon and Courtenay families is indicated by (among other documents) the charter dated Nov 1217 under which Gui du Donjon chevalier” guaranteed the loyalty of “Robert de Courtenai” to the king[233].  French Renaud’s wife is named “Helvise” in Europäische Stammtafeln[234], but the primary source on which this name is based has not been identified. m ([1135/40]) as his first wife, RENAUD Seigneur de Courtenay, son of MILON Seigneur de Courtenay & his second wife Elisabeth de Nevers ([1105/20]-[27 Sep 1194]).] 

Ferry & his [second/third] wife had one child: 

ii)         BAUDOUIN de Donjon ([1140/55]-[22 Jan 1205/06]).  His parentage is confirmed by Gallia Christiana which states that [his stepbrother, Guillaume Archbishop of Bourges] “Guillelmus de Donjeon ex comitibus Nivernensis oriundus, Mathildis comitissæ Nivernensis dominæ Donziaci avunculus (forte patruus)” had “fratrem...Baldudinum de Hiere” who donated property to “Sacro-Portui seu Barbello Cisterciensis ordinis...monasterio” when leaving for Jerusalem with the consent of “A. uxore et I & Ferrico filiis”, and that he also had “duos alios...fratres...ex reg. cameræ computorum Paris. Guidonem et Petrum de Dijon (Donjeon)”, but cites no primary source on which this information is based[235]Du Bouchet, presumably referring to the same donation, states that “Baudouin du Donjon” donated property to Barbeaux abbey on leaving on pilgrimage, with the consent of his wife “Amicie de Chastillon...de Jean et Ferry ses enfans et de Guillaume son frere Archevesque de Bourges” by charter dated 1203[236]His birth date range is estimated very approximately from the date of his marriage, especially for the purpose of elucidating the difficulties connected with his father’s probable marriages, as shown above.  m ([1175/80]) as her first husband, AMICIE de Breteuil, daughter of VALERAN [III] Seigneur de Breteuil & his second wife Alix de Dreux ([1157/62]-[Sep/Oct] 1226)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[237].  Other sources indicate that Valéran’s first wife was the mother of the two older daughters.  However, the charter dated Mar 1201, under which "Gaucherus de Castellione dominus de Mongai" [identified as Gaucher [III] de Châtillon, future comte de Saint-Pol, son of Alix de Dreux by her second marriage] confirmed a donation to Saint-Denis by “sororio meo Balduino de Donion et...sorori meæ Amiciæ” by charter dated Mar 1201[238], indicates that Amicie was Alix’s daughter.  One difficulty is presented by the charter dated Jul 1223, quoted below, which confirms that Amicie inherited the seigneurie de Blanc-Fossé from Manassès de Bulles her “avunculus”.  "Balduinus de Dongione et...Amicia uxor eius" donated property “quod dominus Gaucherius de Castillione feodum” to Saint-Denis by charter dated Mar 1201[239]Gallia Christiana states that “Guillelmus de Donjeon ex comitibus Nivernensis oriundus, Mathildis comitissæ Nivernensis dominæ Donziaci avunculus (forte patruus)” had “fratrem...Baldudinum de Hiere” who donated property to “Sacro-Portui seu Barbello Cisterciensis ordinis...monasterio” when leaving for Jerusalem with the consent of “A. uxore et I & Ferrico filiis”, but cites no primary source on which this information is based[240]Du Bouchet, presumably referring to the same donation, states that “Baudouin du Donjon” donated property to Barbeaux abbey on leaving on pilgrimage, with the consent of his wife “Amicie de Chastillon...de Jean et Ferry ses enfans et de Guillaume son frere Archevesque de Bourges” by charter dated 1203[241]She married secondly Jean Briard Seigneur de Villiers.  “Amicia uxor quondam Baudoini de Donjun” donated “censu meo...apud Domnum Martinum” to Chaalis, with the consent of “Dni Johannis Briardi presentis viri mei”, by charter dated 1213[242].  “Symon de Pissyaco [...et Agnes uxor mea] et...Johannes Briart [...et Amitia uxor mea]” confirmed a donation to Vaux de Cernay by charter dated 1214[243].  She succeeded her great nephew Thibaut VI Comte de Blois as Dame de Breteuil in 1218.  Dame de Catheux.  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[244]She married thirdly (before Aug 1225) Gauthier de ReynelA charter dated Aug 1225 records an agreement between the bishop of Beauvais and Galterus de Risnel dominus Brituliensis et Amicia uxor mea domina Brituliensis[245].  Baudouin & his wife had [five or more] children: 

(1)       [JEAN] de DonjonGallia Christiana states that “Guillelmus de Donjeon ex comitibus Nivernensis oriundus, Mathildis comitissæ Nivernensis dominæ Donziaci avunculus (forte patruus)” had “fratrem...Baldudinum de Hiere” who donated property to “Sacro-Portui seu Barbello Cisterciensis ordinis...monasterio” when leaving for Jerusalem with the consent of “A. uxore et I & Ferrico filiis”, but cites no primary source on which this information is based[246].  There is no indication of the name of which “I” was the abbreviation.  However, it should be born in mind that “I” could have been “J” in Latin, maybe representing “Iohannes” or Jean.  Du Bouchet, presumably referring to the same donation, states that “Baudouin du Donjon” donated property to Barbeaux abbey on leaving on pilgrimage, with the consent of his wife “Amicie de Chastillon...de Jean et Ferry ses enfans et de Guillaume son frere Archevesque de Bourges” by charter dated 1203[247]

(2)       FERRY de DonjonGallia Christiana states that “Guillelmus de Donjeon ex comitibus Nivernensis oriundus, Mathildis comitissæ Nivernensis dominæ Donziaci avunculus (forte patruus)” had “fratrem...Baldudinum de Hiere” who donated property to “Sacro-Portui seu Barbello Cisterciensis ordinis...monasterio” when leaving for Jerusalem with the consent of “A. uxore et I & Ferrico filiis”, but cites no primary source on which this information is based[248]Du Bouchet, presumably referring to the same donation, states that “Baudouin du Donjon” donated property to Barbeaux abbey on leaving on pilgrimage, with the consent of his wife “Amicie de Chastillon...de Jean et Ferry ses enfans et de Guillaume son frere Archevesque de Bourges” by charter dated 1203[249]

(3)       [other son(s) .  Amicia domina Bretolii” confirmed donations of harvest at Breteuil to the church of Saint-Just for the souls of “ses fils et de ses filles, de ses frères et sœurs” by charter dated 1221[250].  The chronology dictates that all Amicie’s children were born from her marriage to Baudouin de Donjon, or possibly from an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage.  It is not known whether there were other sons besides “I”, Ferry and Guillaume.] 

(4)       daughters .  “Amicia domina Bretolii” confirmed donations of harvest at Breteuil to the church of Saint-Just for the souls of “ses fils et de ses filles, de ses frères et sœurs” by charter dated 1221[251].  The chronology dictates that all Amicie’s children were born from her marriage to Baudouin de Donjon, or possibly from an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage.

(5)       GUILLAUME de Donjon (-[Jun 1221/1226]).  “Amicie dame de Breteuil” donated “une rente de cent livres sur le péage de Francastel” to “son fils Guillaume de Donjon frère et chevalier de l’hôpital de Jerusalem” and the knights by charter dated Jun 1221[252].  Knight Hospitaller.  It is assumed that Guillaume predeceased his mother as there is no indication that he inherited either the seigneurie de Breteuil or the seigneurie de Blanc-Fossé from her, unless he was excluded from the inheritance by reason of his membership of the knights hospitallers. 

Ferry & his [third] wife had two children: 

iii)        GUY de Donjon (-after Nov 1217).  Gallia Christiana states that “Guillelmus de Donjeon ex comitibus Nivernensis oriundus, Mathildis comitissæ Nivernensis dominæ Donziaci avunculus (forte patruus)” had “fratrem...Baldudinum de Hiere” who donated property to “Sacro-Portui seu Barbello Cisterciensis ordinis...monasterio” when leaving for Jerusalem with the consent of “A. uxore et I & Ferrico filiis”, and that he also had “duos alios...fratres...ex reg. cameræ computorum Paris. Guidonem et Petrum de Dijon (Donjeon)”, but cites no primary source on which this information is based[253].  "Petrus del Donjon et Guido frater meus et filii mei Johannes et Petrus milites" donated property to Notre-Dame des Vaux de Cernay by charter dated 1214[254].  The Scripta de Feodis of King Philippe II record “domini Guidonis et Petri de Donjone fratrum beati Guillermi Bituricensis quondam archiepiscopi” and their holdings[255]Gui du Donjon chevalier” guaranteed the loyalty of “Robert de Courtenai” to the king by charter dated Nov 1217[256].  The identity of “Robert de Courtenai” is not specified in this document.  The charter dated Jun 1223, quoted below, suggests that he may have been Robert de Courtenay, future Emperor of Constantinople, who, as discussed further in CONSTANTINOPLE LATIN EMPIRE, is the more likely identification of “dominum...Robertum de Courtenay” in that document and probably succeeded as seigneur de Courtenay when his older brother Philippe was appointed regent of Namur in 1217.  [m ---.  The name of Guy’s wife is not known.  Guy & his wife had one child:]

Petrum de Donjone et Iohannem et Petrum filios eius...et Guidonem de Donjone et Ferricum ac Guillelmum filios eius” acting as guarantors in specified sums, by charter dated Jun 1223[257].  The order of the names in this document suggests that Guy de Donjon was junior in some way to Pierre de Donjon.  In all other sources which name the brothers Guy and Pierre de Donjon, Guy is named first.  This reversing of the name order suggests that Guy who is named in 1223 was not the same person as Guy, brother of Pierre.  Maybe he was the son of the older Guy.]  m ---.  The name of Guy’s wife is not known.  Guy & his wife had two children: 

(a)       FERRY de Donjon (-after Jun 1223).  “Philippus marchio Namurcii” swore allegiance to Philippe II King of France, with “dominum...Robertum de Courtenay...Dom. Petrum de Donjone et Iohannem et Petrum filios eius...et Guidonem de Donjone et Ferricum ac Guillelmum filios eius” acting as guarantors in specified sums, by charter dated Jun 1223[258]

iv)       PIERRE de Donjon ([1145/50]-1 Apr, after Feb 1226)"Petrus de Donjungno" donated property to Beaulieu leprosery, with the consent of "sa femme Giroia et de ses fils Baudricus, Amauricus, Petrus clericus, Gillbertus et Joannes", by charter dated 1179[260].  Pierre’s birth date is estimated on the basis of his being married with five children who were old enough to be named in the 1179 charter, while bearing in mind his still being named in the charter dated 1225.  A charter dated 1197 records the agreement between Notre-Dame de Paris and "Petrum de Donjon" concerning "terrarum de Virsi" which had been donated “anniversarium Frederici de Donjon[261]

1.         [JEAN d’Etampes ).  Seigneur d’Etampes et de Corbeil.  m [EUSTACHIE de France, daughter of PHILIPPE I King of France & his second wife Bertrade de Montfort ([1095/1100]-[1143]).  She and her husband are named by Kerrebrouck who cites no primary source on which the information is based[307].  Presumably this is based on Sainte-Marthe who states that “Eustache comtesse d’Estampes et de Corbeil, femme de Jean d’Estampes” is named “sœur du Roy Louys le Gros” by “Jacques du Breuil religieux de sainct Germain des Prez les Paris”, adding that the latter records that she founded the abbey of “Hierre” [Kerrebrouck says “Yerres”[308]] where she was buried[309].  Sainte-Marthe also says that “c’est d’elle que semble parler Nangis disant que le Roy Philippe I eut de Bertrade de Montfort deux fils et une fille qu’il nomme Comtesse d’Etampes”.  “Nangis” has not been identified: the Chronicle of Guillaume de Nangis starts in 1113 during the reign of Louis VI King of France.  Eustachie is not named by Père Anselme among the children of King Philippe I[310].  Could there be confusion with Eustachie, daughter of Ferry, whose second husband was Jean d’Etampes (see above)?.

 

 

 

G.      VICOMTES de MELUN

 

 

Information in primary sources relating to the early vicomtes de Melun is sparse.  Père Anselme purports to reconstruct family relationships between some of the individuals who are named below, in some cases in direct contradiction with the primary source information which is quoted here, but provides no basis for his statements[311].  Until further information comes to light, it is suggested that his reconstruction should be viewed with caution. 

 

 

1.         JOSCELIN (-after 1 Mar 1006).  Vicomte de MelunPère Anselme records that "Joscelin I…vicomte de Melun" donated "le village de Noisy le sec" to Saint-Maur-des-Fossés abbey in 998, but gives no citation for the corresponding primary source[312]"Ansoaldi Divitis Parisii, Frederici, Roberti vicecomitis, Nanterii et Joscelmi eius filiorum…Joscelini Miliduni vicecomitis" witnessed the charter dated 1 Mar 1006 under which "Burchardus…castri comes Curboili…cum filio meo Rainoldi…Parisiensium episcopo" [Bouchard Comte de Corbeil] authorised donations to the abbey of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés[313].  This charter suggests a family relationship, as yet untraced, with Robert [II] Vicomte de Blois (see  CENTRAL FRANCE).  His name also suggests a relationship with the family of the Seigneurs de Courtenay (see CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY).

Aubert de Cambray" and "est nommé dans une charte de l’abbaye de Ferrieres" dated 1070, but gives no citation for the corresponding primary sources[316].  "Urso Milidunensis vicecomes atque sua uxor" acknowledged that they had no rights in land of Saint-Maur-les-Fossés by charter dated 1085, the same document recording that "vicecomes Adam" claimed these rights of his predecessor "cuius filiam in conjugium habebat" and from whom he inherited the viscomté dated 1138, the latter witnessed by "Matheus de Monmorenci, Milo de Cortenai...Fredericus de Corboilo…"[317]m --- (-after 1085).  The name of Urson’s wife is not known.  Urson & his wife had [one child]: 

a)         [MATHILDE .  "Adam de Chaalli…et uxor sua Mahaldis et filius eius Gilo" donated "terram de Fontanis" to Néronville, with the consent of "Joscelinus vicecomes Meleduni et Adam frater eius, nepotes memorati Ade", by undated charter[318].  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter, which records firstly that "Urso Milidunensis vicecomes atque sua uxor" acknowledged that they had no rights in land of Saint-Maur-les-Fossés dated 1085, and that "vicecomes Adam" claimed these rights of his predecessor "cuius filiam in conjugium habebat" and from whom he inherited the viscomté dated 1138[319].  The document does not specify that Urson was the predecessor of Adam, and therefore father of Adam’s wife, but this is suggested.  The chronology of the family also suggests that a connection with Urson may be correct.  m ([1080/90]) as his first wife, ADAM de Chailly, son of ETIENNE & his wife --- ([1060/65]-after [1140]).  Vicomte de Melun, de iure uxoris.]

H.      VICOMTES de MELUN (CHAILLY)

 

 

The involvement of the following family with the priory of Néronville suggests an origin in the viscomté of Château-Landon (see CENTRAL FRANCE NOBILITY) in which the priory was located.  Adam, son of Etienne, is named "Adam de Chailly" in later primary sources.  Chailly is identified as "Chailly-en-Bière, canton sud de Melun" by Henri Stein, editor of the Néronville cartulary[328].  If this is correct, it is therefore probable that it was one of the properties which was inherited by Adam through his wife who, as noted below, is recorded as the daughter and heiress of one of the earlier vicomtes de Melun. 

 

 

1.         ETIENNE (-after [1090]).  It is possible that Etienne, father of Adam de Chailly, was either Etienne son of Helduin or Etienne son of Joscelin, both of whom are named in a charter dated to [1090] which records that "Roscelinus de Monsterollo atque Stephanus filius Heldoini et Hersendis uxor eius…Stephanus filius Goscelini et uxor eius Hersendis" consented to the donation of property to Néronville made by "miles…Dimo"[329].  It is assumed that "Stephanus filius Heldoini" and "Stephanus filius Goscelini" were two different individuals, rather than the same person whose father is misnamed in one of the two entries in this document.  If that is correct, it is probable that "Stephanus filius Heldoini" was the father of Adam de Chailly, because another charter, dated to [1100/10] records "…Goscelini Infans, filius Stephani" as consenting to another donation to Néronville[330].  It is unlikely that the father of "Goscelini Infans" was the same person as the father of the brothers Adam and Gauthier who are named below, as no other record has been found of their having a brother named Joscelin.  It is therefore assumed that "Goscelini Infans" was the son of "Stephanus filius Goscelini", named after his paternal grandfather, leaving "Stephanus filius Heldoini" as the father of Adam and Gauthier.  It is probable that the two persons named Etienne in the [1090] charter were closely related, maybe first cousins.  Presumably based on the various primary source entries which are quoted in this section, Burke’s Peerage shows "Etienne de Courtenay", son of Joscelin [I] Seigneur de Courtenay and his first wife (see CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY), as the father of "Adam de Chailly"[331].  There are two major difficulties with this supposed parentage proposed by Burke’s.  Firstly, if Etienne had been an older son of Joscelin [I], he would have inherited the seigneurie de Courtenay in place of his supposed younger brother Milon de Courtenay.  Secondly, as noted below, "Adam filius Stephani" is first named in a document dated to [1085], which places his birth in [1060/65] bearing in mind that he is named in other documents until 1141.  This means that Adam could not have been the grandson of Joscelin [I] de Courtenay.  As discussed more fully under the entry for Etienne’s wife, it is more likely that the relationship between Adam de Chailly and the Courtenay family was through Adam’s mother.  m (before [1060/65]) [HERSENDE], daughter of [ATHON] [Châtelain de Châteaurenard] & his wife ---.  As the mother of "Adam", her parentage and marriage are suggested by the charter dated to [1116/18] which records that "Robertus Bonet" became a monk at Néronville priory and donated "terram quam habebat a Sed ultra flumen Feure (aliàs Fuhure)" with the consent of "Milo de Curtiniaco et Adam nepos eius, de quorum beneficio eratFulco vicecomes [Foulques Vicomte de Château-Landon] de cujus beneficio erat…Garnerius frater Ade et uxor eius Ulgesendis cum filiis suis Herveo et Adam de quorum beneficio erat"[332].  "Adam nepos eius" can be identified as "Adam filius Stephani" who is named in the charters of Néronville which are quoted below, and as Adam de Chailly who was ancestor of later vicomtes de Melun.  Presumably based on these various data points, Burke’s Peerage shows "Etienne de Courtenay" as the son of Joscelin [I] Seigneur de Courtenay and his first wife, and as the father of "Adam de Chailly"[333].  As noted above, this proposed parentage appears impossible.  Another more likely possibility is that the relationship was based on a family connection in the previous generation, possibly through an otherwise unrecorded sister of Joscelin [I] de Courtenay who married the father of Adam de Chailly.  Bearing in mind the notorious difficulty of translating the word nepos, it is certainly possible that it indicates a relationship more remote than "nephew" in the [1116/18] document.  The presence of the names of Milon de Courtenay and "Adam nepos eius" in the [1116/18] charter could be explained if the property which was the subject of the donation had been part of the dowry of Adam’s mother, and was then held by her son Adam as vassal of the seigneurs de Courtenay of whom Milon was then the senior representative.  Another possible explanation of the relationship between Milon and Adam is that it was through the family of Milon de Courtenay’s mother.  In any event, it is possible that Adam de Chailly’s mother was named Hersende.  This is suggested by the charter dated [1090] which records that "Roscelinus de Monsterollo atque Stephanus filius Heldoini et Hersendis uxor eius…Stephanus filius Goscelini et uxor eius Hersendis" consented to donations of properties to Néronville made by "miles…Dimo"[334].  The question of the identity of these two individuals named Etienne is discussed more fully above in relation to [Hersende]’s husband, a debate which is irrelevant when considering the question of [Hersende]’s name as the wives of both persons (assuming that they were two different individuals) were named Hersende.  This possible name of Adam de Chailly’s mother appears corroborated by Burke’s Peerage, in its highly suspect summary of the early generations of the Courtenay family, which names "Hersent de Montereau" as Adam’s mother[335].  As with all data in Burke’s, no information is given on the primary source on which the statement is based.  Etienne & his wife had two children: 

a)         ADAM ([1060/65]-after 1141).  His birth date is estimated from his first mention which is dated to [1085], and is also consistent with his having grandsons who had already reached the age of majority before the death of his son Gillon (estimated to before [1140]).  "Hauvinus frater Garmundi et Adam filius Stephani…de quorum feudo erat" consented to the donation of revenue from the church of Chevannes to Néronville made by "miles…Fulco Faicus" by charter dated to [1085][336].  "Hauvinus frater Garmundi et Adam filius Stephani…et Garnerius frater Adami, de corum beneficio erant" consented to the donation of revenue from the chapel of Notre-Dame de Souppes to Néronville made by "Fulco Faicus" by charter dated to [1090][337].  "Fulcone vicecomite, Adam filio Stephani, Gilone filius eius…" witnessed the charter dated to [1100/10] under which "Lucia uxor Rainardi Pulcri et Amalricus filius eius et Agnes filia eius" donated property to the priory of Néronville[338].  His family connection with the Courtenay family is indicated by the charter dated to [1116/18] which records that "Robertus Bonet" became a monk at Néronville and donated "terram quam habebat a Sed ultra flumen Feure (aliàs Fuhure)" with the consent of "Milo de Curtiniaco et Adam nepos eius, de quorum beneficio eratFulco vicecomes [Foulques Vicomte de Château-Landon] de cujus beneficio erat…Garnerius frater Ade et uxor eius Ulgesendis cum filiis suis Herveo et Adam de quorum beneficio erat"[339].  "Adam filius Stephani, Garnerius frater eius…" witnessed the charter dated to [1122/42] under which "miles Aubericus Forestarius" donated "molendinum…in alodio apud…Nosent" to Néronville[340].  "Adam de Chaalli…et uxor sua Mahaldis et filius eius Gilo" donated "terram de Fontanis" to Néronville, with the consent of "Joscelinus vicecomes Meleduni et Adam frater eius, nepotes memorati Ade", by undated charter[341].  "Adam de Choally" donated "tres hospites in villa…Nemos" to Sauve-Majeur, for the soul of "Gilonis filii mei, qui in cemeterio Neronis Ville sepultus est", by undated charter[342]Vicomte de Melun, de iure uxoris.  A charter records firstly that "Urso Milidunensis vicecomes atque sua uxor" acknowledged that they had no rights in land of Saint-Maur-les-Fossés dated 1085, and that "vicecomes Adam" claimed these rights of his predecessor "cuius filiam in conjugium habebat" and from whom he inherited the viscomté dated 1138[343].  "Dominus Adam de Cali, filius Stephani" donated property to the priory of Néronville, for the soul of "Gilonis filii sui", together with "duo nepotes eius Jocelinus et Adam, filii Gilonis, et Maheldis uxor Gilonis", by charter dated to [1140], confirmed by Louis VII King of France by charter dated 1141[344].  Louis VII King of France confirmed the donation of "decem solidos…in pedagio de Saya" made to Saint-Pierre de Néronville by "Adam de Calliaco", for the soul of "filii sui Gilonis", by charter dated 1141[345].  Louis VII granted protection to Saint-Pierre de Melun, with the support of "Adam tunc vice-comite Meleduni", by charter dated 1141[346]m firstly ([1080/90]) MATHILDE de Melun, daughter of [URSON] Vicomte de Melun & his wife ---.  "Adam de Chaalli…et uxor sua Mahaldis et filius eius Gilo" donated "terram de Fontanis" to Néronville, with the consent of "Joscelinus vicecomes Meleduni et Adam frater eius, nepotes memorati Ade", by undated charter[347].  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter, which records firstly that "Urso Milidunensis vicecomes atque sua uxor" acknowledged that they had no rights in land of Saint-Maur-les-Fossés dated 1085, and that "vicecomes Adam" claimed these rights of his predecessor "cuius filiam in conjugium habebat" and from whom he inherited the viscomté dated 1138[348].  The document does not specify that Urson was the predecessor of Adam, and therefore father of Adam’s wife, but this is suggested.  The chronology of the family also suggests that a connection with Urson may be correct.  m secondly AVELINE, daughter of ---.  Adam de Challiaco...et Avelina eius Ade sponsa” consented to the donation to Yerres made by “Odo Briardus”, in the presence of “Eustachia Frederici mater”, by undated charter, witnessed by “...Fredericus de Donjonio, Terricus filius Ade de Challiaco...[349]According to Burke’s Peerage, Adam married secondly Aveline de Corbeil dame de Yerres, daughter of Baudouin de Corbeil, without citing the primary source on which the information is based[350].]  Adam & his first wife had one child:

Jean [I] & his first wife had five children: 

1.         JEAN [II] de Melun (-11 Mar 1382, bur Jard)He succeeded his father in 1350 as Vicomte de Melun.  Comte de Tancarville: Jean II King of France appointed “Johannis vicecomiti Meleduni ac Franciæ et Normanniæ Cambellani” as “comitem Tancarvillæ”, naming “Johannæ Crespinæ consortis suæ”, by charter dated 4 Feb 1351 (O.S.)[414]The necrology of the Abbaye du Jard records the death "V Id Mar" of "domini Johannis de Meleduno comitis de Tanquervilla et cambellani Francie" and the bequest under his testament, and under “III Id Mar” his death in 1381 (presumably O.S.)[415]m ([1334]) JEANNE Crespin, daughter of GUILLAUME [VI] Crespin Seigneur d’Etrépagny et du Bec-Crespin, connétable de Normandie & his wife Mathilde de Bommiers (-14 Jan 1374).  Dame d’Etrépagny, de Varanguebec et de Neauphle.  Her parentage, ancestry and marriage are recorded by Richemond[416]Père Anselme dates her marriage to “vers l’an 1334[417], but the source on which this speculation is based has not been identified.  A charter dated Nov 1350, in the presence of “dictorum comitisse et comitis de Roucyaco eius filii” and “dicte domine de Boutavant, suo et dicti mariti sui nomine”, confirms an earlier agreement between “madame Marguerite de Bomez contesse de Roucy et de Brayne [...monseigneur le conte de Roucy et monseigneur Symon de Roucy, ses enfants]” and “monseigneur Jehan de Meleun seigneur de Tancarville [...à cause de madame Jehanne Crespin sa fame...madame Marie Crespin dame de Boutavant] et monseigneur Jehan de Chalon seigneur de Boutevant, à cause de leurs fames, [filles de la feue] dame d’Estrepigny, suer de la dite contesse” concerning “Bomez, de Mirabel, de Blason et de Montfaucon[418].  She is named in the 4 Feb 1351 charter of her husband.  Jean [II] & his wife had three children:

i)          MARGUERITE (-before 1448)Père Anselme records her parentage and marriage but cites no source on which the information is based[428]Vicomtesse de Melun, Ctss de Tancarville.  m (Noyelles-sur-Mer 1417) as his second wife, JACQUES [II] d'Harcourt Baron de Montgommery, son of JACQUES [I] d’Harcourt Baron de Montgommery & his wife Jeanne d’Enghien (-killed Parthenay 1428).

C.      SEIGNEURS de CHÂTEAUFORT

 

 

Châteaufort is located in the canton of Palaiseau, arrondissement de Versailles, in the present-day French département of Seine-et-Oise, south of Paris.  The earliest sources so far identified which refer to Châteaufort date from the 1060s, although the date when the castle was first established is not known.  Tracing the holding of Châteaufort during the 11th and 12th centuries represents one of the most difficult unresolved problems in the history of the Paris region.  A charter, dated to [1068/74], which records a donation to the church of Châteaufort Saint-Christophe records that the châtellenie de Châteaufort was divided into two shares, the first part held by Guy Seigneur de Montlhéry and the second by the brothers Aimery and Hugues de Châteaufort, whose holding was presumably also based on descent from the Montlhéry family.  In the early 12th century, Châteaufort was held by Hugues de Crécy, son of Guy [II] Comte de Rochefort, representing presumably only the first part of the holding as direct descendant of Guy Seigneur de Montlhéry.  The castle was where Hugues imprisoned and later murdered his cousin Milon [II] in [1116/18], and was presumably among the properties confiscated by Louis VI King of France.  No record has yet been found of the identity of any new grantee of this first part of Châteaufort.  Isolated references have been found to other holders of Châteaufort during the 12th century as shown below, presumably all title-holders of the second part as successors of the brothers Aimery and Hugues although the information in the documentation is insufficient to trace any family descent. 

 

Mathilde, wife of Bouchard de Montmorency Seigneur de Marly, is recorded as Dame de Châteaufort in the early 13th century.  The precise line of descent by which she inherited the Châteaufort seigneurie has not been identified.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names her mother Constance as youngest daughter of Pierre de France Seigneur de Courtenay (see  CHAMPAGNE NOBILITY).  Given that the ancestry of the Courtenay family can be traced with certainty in the 12th century, this parentage does not provide the necessary link with Châteaufort.  Modern secondary sources name “Gasce de Poissy” as the first husband of Constance and father of Mathilde de Marly (although the primary source which confirms that this information is correct has not been identified).  One possibility is that Mathilde’s father (whatever his identity) was the heir to Châteaufort, maybe as the son of one of the three daughters of Hugues [II] de Châteaufort who are named in the charter dated 1167 which is quoted below.  This Gasce de Poissy has not yet been satisfactorily identified.  There are two known possibilities: Gasce [V] de Poissy, whose known wife was named in a charter dated towards the end of her husband’s life which appears to exclude a second marriage, and his son Gasce [VI], after whose death Poissy was inherited by his younger brother Robert which suggests that he left no surviving children.  Another possible indication of the ancestry of Mathilde de Marly Dame de Châteaufort is provided by a charter dated Jul 1212, issued by Mathilde and her sister Mabilie, which refers to “Hugo...dominus Galardonis antecessor noster”.  He was been identified as Hugues [I] de Gallardon (see CENTRAL FRANCE NOBILITY).  No connection has been made between the Gallardon family and Châteaufort.  However, Hugues died in [1100] leaving an infant daughter Mathilde.  The chronology suggests that this Mathilde de Gallardon could have been one of the unknown great-grandmothers of Mathilde de Marly, maybe the mother of the other Mathilde who is recorded as the wife of Hugues [II] de Châteaufort (see below).

a)         THIBAUT [II] de Lévis ([1305/12]-30 May 1387).  Père Anselme records that his uncle Pierre de Lévis Bishop of Cambrai was Thibaut’s guardian in 1316[802].  Baron de Montbrun.  m SEGUINE de Comminges, daughter of ---.  Père Anselme names her as wife of Thibaut [II] but does not name her parents[803].  She has not yet been traced in the comital family of Comminges.  Thibaut & his wife had one child: 

i)          CECILE de Lévis (-before 1392).  Père Anselme records that Cécile, daughter of Thibaut de Lévis, was kidnapped by “Charles d’Espagne son parent...au troisième degré” who captured “[le] château de Montbrun” in 1374 and expelled his father-in-law, adding that the couple died before 1392 leaving two sons “Thibaut et Bertrand d’Espagne dits de Lévis” who were legitimated 17 Apr 1379, required because their parents married without the required dispensation, while the older son Thibaut was appointed heir under his maternal grandfather’s testament dated 30 May 1387 and, aged 15, obtained confirmation of his legitimation 18 Jul 1388[804].  Père Anselme records that Thibaut d’Espagne was ordered 4 Sep 1405 to share his inheritance with “Brunissende de Lautrec, femme d’Yves seigneur de Garencières...petite-fille de Gaillarde de Lévis, sœur de Thibaut de Lévis [II] Seigneur de Montbrun[805].  Charles d’Espagne has not otherwise been identified, nor his precise family relationship with Cécile de Lévis ascertained.  The “Espagne” family descended from the Vicomtes de Couserans (see the document TOULOUSE NOBILITY), but their relationship with the Comminges family (see Cécile’s mother) is too remote to constitute 3o consanguinity between Cécile and Charles d’Espagne.  m (before [1372/73]) CHARLES d’Espagne, son of --- (-before 1392). 

b)         GAILLARDE de Lévis .  Her parentage is indicated by the decision dated 4 Sep 1405 under which “Thibaut d’Espagne dit de Lévis” (see above) was ordered to share his inheritance with [her granddaughter] “Brunissende de Lautrec, femme d’Yves seigneur de Garencières...petite-fille de Gaillarde de Lévis, sœur de Thibaut de Lévis [II] Seigneur de Montbrun[806].  Dame de Montaigut {Tarn}.  m GUILLAUME de Narbonne, son of AIMERY [V] Vicomte de Narbonne & his wife Jeanne de l’Isle-Jourdain.  Seigneur de Montaigut, de iure uxorisSeigneur de Montagnac {Hérault}. 

c)         [--- de Lévis .  His/her possible parentage is explained below under Anglésie [de Lévis].  One difficulty with this possible descent is that Anglésie [de Lévis] was apparently not named in the decision dated 4 Sep 1405 (or at least Père Anselme’s summary of this decision) under which Thibaut d’Espagne dit de Lévis (see above) was ordered to share his inheritance with “Brunissende de Lautrec, femme d’Yves seigneur de Garencières...petite-fille de Gaillarde de Lévis, sœur de Thibaut de Lévis [II] Seigneur de Montbrun[807]m ---.  One child:] 

i)          [--- .  m ---.  One child:]

(a)       [ANGLESIE [de Levis] .  Père Anselme states that Anglésie was the daughter of Thibaut de Lévis Seigneur de Sérignac et de Florensac, and his wife Anglésie de Montaigut, and records her marriage, adding that her father-in-law demanded her agreed dowry in 1390[808].  If 1390 is the right date (and the birth date of her daughter suggests that it could be correct), Anselme’s indicated parentage is impossible from a chronological point of view.  Her name indicates descent from Anglésie de Montaigut: the chronology suggests that Anglésie [de Lévis] could have been her granddaughter.  m (before 1387) PIERRE de Bueil Seigneur du Bois, son of JEAN [III] Seigneur de Bueil & his first wife Anne d’Avoir (-Apr 1414).] 

4.         MATHIEU (-[Jan/Sep] 1296).  The marriage contract between “Guidone de Levis dom. Mirapicis et...Mathei de Levis filii sui” and “domina Aladayssi relicta dom.

a)         GUY [I] (-[24 Jul] 1095, bur abbaye de Longpont)The Historia of Monk Aimon names "Guidonem" as the son of "Theobaldus cognomina Filans-stupas, Forestarius [Roberti Regis]" stating that he held "Montem-Lethericum"[914]Seigneur de Montlhéry.  He founded the priory of Longpont [1061]: Geoffroy Bishop of Paris confirmed that "noster miles...Guido" founded the church of Notre-Dame de Longpont, under the abbey of Cluny, by charter dated to [1061][915].  "Guido de Monte Leterico eiusque uxor Hodierna" donated property to Notre-Dame de Longpont by charter dated to [1061], witnessed by "Wido filius eorum, Adam vicecomes..."[916].  "…Guido de Monte Letheri…" witnessed the charter dated 29 May 1067 under which Philippe I King of France confirmed the possessions of Saint-Martin-des-Champs[917].  "Guido de Monte Leherico" donated property to Notre-Dame de Longpont, confirmed by "filii mei Milo et Guido et conjux mea Hodierna", by charter dated to [1070], witnessed by “...Aymo vicecomes...[918].  He became a monk at Longpont.  The necrology of Longpont records the death "IX Kal Aug" of "Guido institutor hujus loci.

The relationship, if any, between the following persons and the preceding Montlhéry family has not been ascertained, although the name Milon suggests that there was probably a close connection.  In addition, the names are reminiscent of the châtelains de Châteaufort, whose relationship with the early Montlhéry family is indicated by their joint holding of the châtelennie with Guy [I] Seigneur de Montlhéry.

Merlet notes that, after the death in 1409 of Jean de Montagu (see below), “un bruit injurieux...courut” that he was the illegitimate son of the future Charles V King of France in order to explain his acquisition of enormous wealth[1000].  The primary source which records this rumour has not been identified.  It was not Pierre Cochon’s Chronique Normande which, as noted below, makes no mention of the question[1001].  Merlet suggests that the “Gros” family was descended from the Grossus family of Burgundy, Seigneurs de Brancion (see BURGUNDY DUCHY NOBILITY - MÂCON & BEAUJEU), but provides no documentary proof to support this suggestion[1002]
