Chapter 1.    VICOMTES de BROSSE

 

 

A.      VICOMTES de BROSSE

 

 

The castle of Brosse was located in Berry, in the commune of Chaillac, arrondissement Le Blanc, in the present-day French département of Indre.  The reconstruction of the family of the early Vicomtes de Brosse is uncertain.  It is shown below without square brackets, but the difficulty is that, as so little information has been verified in primary source documents, it is a question of showing everything or nothing square bracketed.  The reconstruction shown in the present document is based almost exclusively on the 17th and 18th century authors Le Laboureur (as reproduced by Beauchet-Filleau[1]) and Père Anselme[2], neither of which give precise primary source citations.  The outline has been more or less adopted in modern secondary sources, such as Europäische Stammtafeln, without question.  In some cases, reference is made in these old secondary sources to donations made on specific dates which, if correct, provide a factual basis for some of the information.  In addition, some references have been found in published cartularies, particulary Saint-Benoît-du-Loire in relation to donations to the affiliated church of Saint-Benoît-du-Sault which was located near the castle of Brosse.  Additional references to the vicomtes de Brosse are apparently found in the Cartulaire des seigneurs de Châteauroux[3], but this work has not yet been consulted.  Until more primary source information emerges, it is recommended that the reconstruction should be treated with caution.  The family is interesting for later history particularly because a junior branch inherited the county of Penthièvre in the 1430s by marriage, and in the later 15th century made several important dynastic marriages, including with the comtes de Savoie, although they fall outside the main chronological scope of Medieval Lands

 

 

1.         [RAOULVicomte [de Brosse].  "Willelmi comitis, Hugoni comitis, item Hugoni, Savarici vicecomitis, Kadeloni vicecomitis, Adraldi vicecomitis, Radulfi vicecomitis…" subscribed the charter dated [936/37] ("anno I Ludovico regnante") under which "Senegundis" donated "alodem suum in pago Alienense, in vicaria Basiacinse in villa…Fornax…" to St Cyprien, Poitiers[4].  Richard states that Guillaume I “Tête d'Etoupes/Caput-stupæ” Comte de Poitou created Raoul as vicomte de Brosse to assure his northern frontier against the king of France[5].  He cites no primary source to support his statement, but his statement may have been based on the reference to "…Radulfi vicecomitis…" in the [936/37] charter.  Settipani suggests another possible interpretation: as "Hugonis comitis, item Hugoni" can reasonably be identified as Hugues [I] Comte du Maine, and maybe his son or other close relative also named Hugues, it is not unreasonable to identify "Radulfi vicecomitis" as Raoul [I] Vicomte du Maine or one of his predecessors (see the document MAINE)[6].  If this is correct, it is possible that Richard is inaccurate in his statement and that the vicomté de Brosse was first created much later.] 

 

2.         --- .  [Vicomte de Brosse.]  m ---.  [One child]: 

a)         [ROTHILDE .  According to Le Laboureur, Rothilde was the daughter of a vicomte de Brosse (unnamed), although Settipani has pointed out that no primary source reference is quoted in his work to support this statement and suggests that it may be based on an unsound conclusion drawn because the castle of Brosse was held by Rothilde’s descendants and is later recorded as a vicomté[7].  "Hildegarius Lemovicensium pontifex" granted privileges to Uzerche, naming "genitore meo…domno Geraldo vicecomite necnon et genetrice mea Rotilde…" by charter dated to [970/86][8].  "Rotildis vicecomitissa" donated "mansum…a Monsor…in vicaria Usercensi" to Uzerche, for the souls of "Archambaldi senioris mariti mei" who had given this property to her and "Geraldi vicecomitis senioris mei", by charter dated to [Jul 987/988], witnessed by "filii eiusdem Rothildis, Aldegarius episcopus, Guido, Geraldus, Alduinus abbas et cæteri filii…"[9].  Possible family connections of Rothilde’s first husband are suggested by the charter dated to [1003/36] under which "Rotbertus de Chatmart et Gaufredus frater eius…Ermesindis et Belieldis uxores eorum, Ebolus et Guido et Geraldus filii Gaufredi, Arcambaldus et Geraldus filii Rotberti" donated property in "manso de Monsor" to Uzerche[10], the connection being "Monsor" [Moussours near Uzerche].  m firstly ARCHAMBAUD, son of ---.  m secondly GERAUD Vicomte de Limoges, son of HILDEGAIRE Vicomte de Limoges & his wife Thiberge --- ([905/10]-988).] 

 

 

1.         BERNARD [I] de Brosse, son of [ADEMAR [I] Vicomte de Limoges] & his wife [Senegundis] [d'Aunay] Vicomte de Brosse.  Bernard [I] Vicomte de Brosse is stated in secondary sources, including Europäische Stammtafeln[11], to have been the son of Adémar [I] Vicomte de Limoges.  Beauchet-Filleau states that Bernard [I] was the son of Vicomte Ademar but cites no primary source[12].  The primary source which confirms that this parentage is correct has not yet been identified.  The chronology of his son Gérard [I] suggests that Bernard [I] could not have been the son of Ademar.  The early history of the vicomtes de Brosse is hazy and until more information comes to light it is suggested that this proposed affiliation be treated with caution.  Bernard [I] is not mentioned by Père Anselme[13]m ---.  The name of Bernard’s wife is not known.  Bernard [I] & his wife had two children: 

a)         GERARD [I] de Brosse (-after 1139).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1154 under which Pierre Archbishop of Bourges, in the presence of "Bernardus vicecomes de Brucia", confirmed an agreement between the abbot of Fleury and "Giraudum patrem predicti vicecomitis", quoting an earlier charter issued by "Giraudus et Fulco frater meus, Brucie vicecomites" naming "Bernardi patris ipsius Giraudi"[14]Vicomte de Brosse.  Beauchet-Filleau states that Gérard Vicomte de Brosse is named in 1120 and 1136, donated property to la Maison-Dieu de Montmorillon, and inherited the vicomté de Bridiers in 1139 after the death of his cousin Bérard vicomte de Bridier, but cites no corresponding primary source[15]"Giraudus et Fulco frater meus, vicecomites" abandoned rights over Saint-Benoît-du-Sault in favour of the monastery of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire by charter dated 1137 (before 9 Apr)[16].  Louis VII King of France "et dux Aquitanorum" defended the right of "G. vicecomite de Brucia" to impose customs on the church of Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated to [1137/54][17]m AGNES [de Liveran], daughter of ---.  Père Anselme names "Agnes" as wife of "Géraud vicomte de Brosse" but cites no primary source[18].  Beauchet-Filleau states that Gérard Vicomte de Brosse married "Agnès de Liveran? (dit-on)", but cites no corresponding primary source[19].  Gérard [I] & his wife had five children: 

i)          BERNARD [II] de Brosse (-after [1167]).  Beauchet-Filleau names "Bernard…Foulques…Guillaume, Guy…Garnier" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse and his wife, adding that Bernard and Foulques obtained le château de Bridiers from the king in [1167], but cites no corresponding primary source[20].  Pierre Archbishop of Bourges, in the presence of "Bernardus vicecomes de Brucia", confirmed an agreement between the abbot of Fleury and "Giraudum patrem predicti vicecomitis", by charter dated 1154, quoting an earlier charter issued by "Giraudus et Fulco frater meus, Brucie vicecomites" naming "Bernardi patris ipsius Giraudi"[21].  "Bernardus vicecomes de Brucia, major natu Geraudi vicecomitis filius" reached an agreement with Saint-Benoît-du-Sault concerning the town of Sault by charter dated 1154[22]"Bernard vicomte de Brosse" confirmed donations to the abbey of Aubignac by charter dated 1165[23]m --- [de la Pastoresse], daughter of ---.  Père Anselme names "N--- de la Pastoresse, sœur de Pierre prévôt de Salles" as wife of Bernard [I] but cites no primary source[24].  Beauchet-Filleau names "Pastoresse (appelée par d’autres Philiberte la Pastoresse, sœur dit-on de Pierre prévôt de Solles?)" as the wife of Bernard [II] Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no corresponding primary source[25].  Bernard [II] & his wife had two children: 

(a)       BERNARD [III] de Brosse (-after Mar 1193).  Père Anselme names "Bernard…vicomte de Brosse, Bérard de Brosse, dit de la Pastoresse" as the children of Bernard [II] Vicomte de Brosse, adding that Bernard [II] was living in 1175, but cites no primary sources[26]

-         see below

(b)       BERARD de Brosse .  Père Anselme names "Bernard…vicomte de Brosse, Bérard de Brosse, dit de la Pastoresse" as the children of Bernard [II] Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no primary source[27]

ii)         GUILLAUME de Brosse .  Père Anselme names "Bernard vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume, Guy, Fouques, Garnier, Guy, Bernard" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no primary source[28].  Beauchet-Filleau names "Bernard…Foulques…Guillaume, Guy…Garnier" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse and his wife, but cites no primary source[29]

iii)        GUY de Brosse .  Père Anselme names "Bernard vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume, Guy, Fouques, Garnier, Guy, Bernard" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse, adding that Guy married "Alpays" and was father of "Raimond de Brosse", but cites no primary sources[30]m ALPAIS, daughter of ---.  Père Anselme names "Bernard vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume, Guy, Fouques, Garnier, Guy, Bernard" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse, adding that Guy married "Alpays" and was father of "Raimond de Brosse", but cites no primary sources[31].  Guy & his wife had one child: 

(a)       RAYMOND de Brosse .  Père Anselme names "Bernard vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume, Guy, Fouques, Garnier, Guy, Bernard" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse, adding that Guy married "Alpays" and was father of "Raimond de Brosse", but cites no primary sources[32]

iv)       FOULQUES de Brosse .  Père Anselme names "Bernard vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume, Guy, Fouques, Garnier, Guy, Bernard" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no primary source[33].  Beauchet-Filleau names "Bernard…Foulques…Guillaume, Guy…Garnier" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse and his wife, adding that Bernard and Foulques obtained le château de Bridiers from the king in [1167], but cites no corresponding primary source[34]

v)        GARNIER de Brosse .  Père Anselme names "Bernard vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume, Guy, Fouques, Garnier, Guy, Bernard" as the children of Gérard Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no primary source[35]

b)         FOULQUES de Brosse (-after 1137).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1154 under which Pierre Archbishop of Bourges, in the presence of "Bernardus vicecomes de Brucia", confirmed an agreement between the abbot of Fleury and "Giraudum patrem predicti vicecomitis", quoting an earlier charter issued by "Giraudus et Fulco frater meus, Brucie vicecomites" naming "Bernardi patris ipsius Giraudi"[36].  "Giraudus et Fulco frater meus, vicecomites" abandoned rights over Saint-Benoît-du-Sault in favour of the monastery of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire by charter dated 1137 (before 9 Apr)[37]

 

 

BERNARD [III] de Brosse, son of BERNARD [II] Vicomte de Brosse & his wife --- [de la Pastoresse] (-after Mar 1193).  Père Anselme names "Bernard…vicomte de Brosse, Bérard de Brosse, dit de la Pastoresse" as the children of Bernard [II] Vicomte de Brosse, adding that Bernard [II] was living in 1175, but cites no primary sources[38]Vicomte de Brosse.  “Bernardus vicecomes Brutie" swore homage to Philippe II King of France by charter dated Mar 1193 (maybe O.S.)[39]

m (after [1187/91]) as her second husband, ALMODIS d'Angoulême, widow of AMANIEU [IV] Seigneur d'Albret, daughter of GUILLAUME VI Comte d'Angoulême & his second wife Marguerite de Turenne ([1151/52]-).  Her birth date is estimated on the assumption that the birth of her probable son by her first marriage is correctly dated to [1165/70].  Her parentage and first marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1171 under which "Vuillelmus Talafers comes Engolismensis Vulgrini filius et Margarita uxor mea et filii nostri Vulgrinus scilicet primogenitus noster, Vuillelmus Talafers, Ademarus, Grisetus, Fulco et Almodis filia nostra uxor Amanei de Lebret" transferred rights to Saint-Amant-de-Boixe[40].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1186/91] under which "Ademarus comes Engolismensis et soror mea Almodis vicecomitissa de Brozces" donated property to Saint-Amant-de-Boixe[41], and by the charter also dated to [1186/91] under which "Almodis soror Ademari Engolismensis comitis" donated property to Saint-Amant-de-Boixe with the consent of "fratre meo A comite et viro meo Bernardo vicecomite de Brozces"[42].  The dating of Almodis’s second marriage is difficult to estimate with any certainty.  Her first husband is named in a source dated 1164, and "Amaneus de Labret" confirmed rights to Grande-Selve by charter dated 1187[43].  However, it is uncertain whether the second document relates to Amanieu [IV] Seigneur d’Albret or to Amanieu [V].  Considering her estimated birth date, it is unlikely that Almodis would have married secondly as late as 1187. 

Bernard [III] & his wife had one child: 

1.         BERNARD [IV] de Brosse ([1188 or after]-after 1221).  Père Anselme names "Bernard…vicomte de Brosse" as the son of Bernard [III] Vicomte de Brosse, noting that he made several donations "à l’église de Montmorillon", but cites no primary sources[44]Vicomte de Brosse.  Beauchet-Filleau states that Bernard [IV] Vicomte de Brosse (for whom he gives no affiliation) donated property to "la Maison-Dieu de Montmorillon", dated 1211 and 1221, but does not cite the corresponding primary sources[45]m ---.  The name of Bernard’s wife is not known.  Bernard [IV] & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         [HUGUES [I] de Brosse (-after 1256).  Père Anselme names "Hugues vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume" as the two sons of Bernard [IV] Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no primary sources[46].  As noted below, it is also possible that Hugues [I] Vicomte de Brosse was the son of Gérard [II] Vicomte de Brosse.] 

-        see below

b)         GUILLAUME de Brosse (-Brinon 8 Feb 1269).  Père Anselme names "Hugues vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume" as the two sons of Bernard [IV] Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no primary sources[47].  Canon at Sens.  Archbishop of Sens 1258, resigned 1267. 

c)         ELEONORE de Brosse ([1210/20]-after 1250).  Père Anselme names "Ænor de Brosse dame des Essarts" as daughter of Bernard [IV] Vicomte de Brosse and records that she married "Thibaut Chabot IV…seigneur de Roche-Cerviere, fils de Thibaut Chabot III…", but cites no primary sources[48].  Her date of birth is estimated consistent with the date of marriage of her paternal grandparents.  "Theobaldus Chabot dominus de Rupe Cerveria et de Exsartis" granted dower to "Aenordi de Brocia uxori mee", with the consent of "Girardi Chaboti et Scebrandi Chaboti militum", by charter dated Jun 1250[49]m THIBAUT [V] Chabot Seigneur de la Roche-Cervière, son of SEBRAND [II] Chabot & his wife Agnes --- ([1205/15]-after May 1251). 

 

 

1.         --- de Brosse .  The identity of the father of Vicomte Gérard [II] is not known.  However, from a chronological point of view he could have been Bérard (error for Gérard?), younger brother of Bernard [III] Vicomte de Brosse (see above).  m [as her first husband,] AGATHE de Preuilly, daughter of PIERRE [II] de Preuilly & his wife Eléonore ---.   Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 1198 (after Sep) under which her son "Giraudus vicecomes Brucie, filius domne Agathe de Prullet" abandoned rights in favour of Saint-Benoît-du-Sault[50]Her marriage and family origin are further indicated by Beauchet-Filleau who states that Géraud Vicomte de Brosse "neveu de Pierre de Monrubé Seigneur de Preuilly" confirmed the donations of his uncle to la Merci-Dieu by charter dated 1229, suggesting that Gérard was therefore the son of the sister of the seigneur de Preuilly[51]Her more precise parentage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln which names "Agathe de Preuilly, daughter of Pierre [II] Sire de Preuilly dit de Montrabel" as the second wife of Bernard [III] Vicomte de Brosse, and also records that she married secondly as his first wife, Hugues [X] "le Brun" Seigneur de Lusignan, who was later Comte de La Marche [52].  No indication has been found that Vicomte Gérard was the son of Vicomte Bernard [III].  In addition, the chronology of the known marriage of Vicomte Bernard [III] appears to exclude the possibility of a second marriage which would be consistent with that second wife’s own second marriage to Hugues [X].  It is assumed, therefore, that the husband of Agathe de Preuilly and father of Gérard [II] was another vicomte de Brosse.  The primary source which confirms her supposed second marriage has not yet been identified.   One child: 

a)         GERARD [II] de Brosse (before [1180/84]-after 21 Jul 1239).  Père Anselme does not mention Gérard [II] Vicomte de Brosse[53]Vicomte de Brosse"Giraudus vicecomes Brucie, filius domne Agathe de Prullet" abandoned rights in favour of Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 1198 (after Sep)[54].  His birth date range is estimated on the assumption that he had reached the age of majority when he issued this charter, but he could have been considerably earlier as no direct indication has been found of his age.  Petrus de Monterabei” donated revenue “in pedagio Roche” to Merci-Dieu abbey, with the consent of “Josbertus de Guerchia frater meus, Aanor uxor mea, filii mei Eschivardus et Gaufridus”, by charter dated 1201, witnessed by “de militibus: Giraudus vicecomes de Brocea nepos meus...Emericus de Rochachoart...[55].  "Géraud vicomte de Brosse" granted protection and exemptions to the abbey of Aubignac by charter dated 1203[56]"Giraudus vicecomes Bruciæ" donated revenue Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 1205[57].  "Vicecomes Brucie" donated a free man to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated May 1209[58].  "G[eraldus] vicecomes Bruciæ" freed serfs who "Guido de Brucia cognatus meus" had donated to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault with the consent of "dominæ matris suæ", by charter dated 1218[59].  "Giraudus vicecomes Bruciæ" granted exclusive rights to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 1220[60]Seigneur de Pouzauges.  "G. vicecomes Brociarum, dominus Pozaugiarum et domina Bellassatis uxor nostra" submitted disputes with the Templars to arbitration by charter dated 5 Dec 1227[61].  Seigneur de Pareds.  "G. vicecomes Brucie, dominus Alperusiensis et Bellasatis eius uxor" donated a serf to the Templars by charter dated 1228[62].  "G. vicecomes Brocearum, dominus Pozaugiarum et…Bellasatis uxor eius" abandoned rights to certain serfs to the Templars by charter dated 17 Aug 1228[63].  Beauchet-Filleau states that Géraud Vicomte de Brosse "neveu de Pierre de Monrubé Seigneur de Preuilly" confirmed the donations of his uncle to la Merci-Dieu by charter dated 1229[64]"Geraldus vicecomes Bruciæ" relinquished rights over "Joanna filia Chavegau" to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 1229[65].  "Geraldus vicecomes Brucie" donated serfs to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault, with the consent of "Hugonis et Petri filiorum meorum", by charter dated 1232[66].  "Giraldus vicecomes Brucie" relinquished rights in favour of Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 1234[67].  Geraud Vicomte de Brosse acknowledged that taking meals at Saint-Benoît-du-Sault did not establish custom by charter dated 1237[68].  "G[eraudus] vicecomes Brucie" donated a serf to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated May 1239[69].  "Giraudus vicecomes Bruciæ" granted hunting rights to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 21 Jul 1239[70].  [m firstly ---.  If it is correct, as stated below, that Gérard’s known wife was the widow of Savary de Mauléon, Gérard’s sons must have been born from an earlier marriage assuming that they were of age to give consent to their father’s donation dated 1232.]  m [secondly] (before 5 Dec 1227) [as her second husband,] BELLASSEZ [de Pareds], [repudiated wife of SAVARY de Mauléon,] daughter of [PIERRE de Pareds & his wife ---] (-after 17 Aug 1228).  "G. vicecomes Brociarum, dominus Pozaugiarum et domina Bellassatis uxor nostra" submitted disputes with the Templars to arbitration by charter dated 5 Dec 1227[71].  Beauchet-Filleau states that Géraud Vicomte de Brosse married "Belle-Assez de Chantemerle, veuve de Savary de Mauléon, fille de Guillaume seigneur de Pouzauges et de Maxence de Beuil", adding that the couple was childless "croyons-nous" (no primary sources cited)[72].  The primary source which confirms the co-identity of Gérard’s [second] wife with the wife of Savary de Mauléon has not been identified (although her unusual name is indicative).  If Beauchet-Fillau is correct, the chronology indicates that Bellassez was not the widow of her first husband, who must have repudiated her.  "G. vicecomes Brucie, dominus Alperusiensis et Bellasatis eius uxor" donated a serf to the Templars by charter dated 1228[73].  "G. vicecomes Brocearum, dominus Pozaugiarum et…Bellasatis uxor eius" abandoned rights to certain serfs to the Templars by charter dated 17 Aug 1228[74].  Gérard [II] & his [first] wife had two children: 

i)          HUGUES de Brosse (-after 1232)"Geraldus vicecomes Brucie" donated serfs to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault, with the consent of "Hugonis et Petri filiorum meorum", by charter dated 1232[75].  No other reference has been found to Hugues, son of Gérard [II].  same person as…?  HUGUES [I] Vicomte de Brosse (-after 1256).  One possibility is that he was the same person as Hugues [I] Vicomte de Brosse, who according to Père Anselme was the son of Vicomte Bernard [IV], an affiliation which has not yet been confirmed by any primary source documentation.  One difficulty with this theory is the absence of the name Pierre, given to the brother of Hugues de Brosse, among the known descendants of Vicomte Hugues [I] earlier than the son of Roger de Brosse Seigneur de Sainte-Sevère. 

-         see below

ii)         PIERRE de Brosse (-after 1232).  "Geraldus vicecomes Brucie" donated serfs to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault, with the consent of "Hugonis et Petri filiorum meorum", by charter dated 1232[76]same person as…?  PIERRE de Brosse (-1247 or after).  No indication has been found of the parentage of Pierre.  He is not mentioned by Père Anselme[77]Vicomte de Brosse.  The testament of "Pierre vicomte de Brosse", extracted from the cartulary of Aubignac, is dated 1247[78]

 

 

The relationship between the following family group and the main family of the vicomtes de Brosse has not been traced, although Guy de Brosse is called "cognatus" by Gérard [II] Vicomte de Brosse: 

 

1.         --- de Brossem --- (-after 1218).  The name of this wife is not known but she is referred to in the charter dated 1218 under which "G[eraldus] vicecomes Bruciæ" freed serfs who "Guido de Brucia cognatus meus" had donated to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault with the consent of "dominæ matris suæ"[79].  One child: 

a)         GUY de Brosse .  "G[eraldus] vicecomes Bruciæ" freed serfs who "Guido de Brucia cognatus meus" had donated to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault with the consent of "dominæ matris suæ", by charter dated 1218[80]

 

2.         GUY de Brosse (-after 1240).  It is possible that Guy de Brosse is the same person as Guy de Brosse, "cognatus" of Gérard [II] Vicomte de Brosse, who is named above.  "Guido de Brucia domicellus" donated his rights over "Giraudo Bone de Pardac" to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 30 Sep 1238[81].  "Guido de Brucia miles" relinquished rights in favour of Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 1238[82].  "Guido de Brucia domicellus" donated a serf to Saint-Benoît-du-Sault by charter dated 1240[83]

 

 

Two brothers:   

1.         HUGUES [I] de Brosse, son of --- (-after 1256).  Vicomte de Brosse.  Seigneur d’Argenton.  The parentage of Vicomte Hugues [I] is uncertain.  Père Anselme names "Hugues vicomte de Brosse, Guillaume" as the two sons of Bernard [IV] Vicomte de Brosse, but cites no primary sources[84].  If this is correct, he was Hugues [I] de Brosse, son of Bernard [IV] Vicomte de Brosse & his wife ---.  However, as noted above, Gérard [II] Vicomte de Brosse is recorded with a son named Hugues.  It is possible that he was the same person as Vicomte Hugues [I] and that the affiliation as stated by Père Anselme is incorrect.  If this suggestion is correct, he was Hugues [I] de Brosse, son of Gérard [II] Vicomte de Brosse & his first wife ---.  This second possibility appears to be corroborated by the charter dated 4 May 1237 issued by "Hugo de Bruccia miles dominus de Sca Severa…filius nobilis viri vicecomitis de Bruccia"[85].  At that time, Vicomte Gérard [II] is named in numerous sources but no trace at all has been found in primary sources of the supposed Vicomte Bernard [IV].  Another indication that the second hypothesis may be correct is that the name Pierre, given to the younger son of Vicomte Gérard [II], was repeated among the descendants of Vicomte Hugues [I].  "Hugues I…vicomte de Brosse" confirmed donations made by his predecessors to the abbey of Prébenoît by charter dated 1254[86]m ([1228]) GUIBURGE, daughter of [HELIE Palestel Seigneur de Sainte-Sevére & his wife ---].  Chénon records that "Hugues I…vicomte de Brosse" married "Hélie de Sainte-Sevère…sa fille Guiburge (ou Guibords)", dating the event to [1228], and inherited the seigneurie de Sainte-Sevère from her father, but he cites no primary source on which the information is based[87].  Beauchet-Filleau names "Guiburge" (no family name or parentage specified) as the wife of Hugues Vicomte de Brosse, but does not cite the corresponding primary sources[88].  She is not named by Père Anselme[89].  Hugues & his wife had two children:

i)          JEAN [Pierre] de Brosse (-after 6 Sep 1353).  Secondary sources are contradictory regarding the name of the oldest son of Vicomte Hugues [II].  Père Anselme names "Jean vicomte de Brosse" as the older son of Hugues [II] Vicomte de Brosse, without citing a primary source, but details his military service in the early 1350s under Aimery de Rochechouart and Louis de Harcourt[97].  Georges Vergeade records that Isabelle de Déols, first wife of Hugues [II] Vicomte de Brosse, died childless and that Vicomte Hugues married secondly "Aénor de Brenne" by whom he was father of "trois fils: Pierre, Hélie et Guillaume" but he does not cite the corresponding primary source[98]m ---.  The name of Jean’s wife is not known.  Jean & his wife had one child:

2.         EBBO (-killed in battle Châteauneuf 19 Jan 1037).  A manuscript entitled "Progenies Dolensium Principum" names "Radulphi Prudens et Ebbo et Helias" as sons of "Odonis Senioris"[316].  The Chronicon Dolensis Cœnobii records that "Ebbo filius Odonis senioris Dolensis" was killed by "vicecomite Gaufrido Bituricensium" in 1033[317].  This follows immediately in this source after the report of the death of "Odo comes Campanie", which suggests that Ebbo was killed in the same battle.

Gildas"[322]Seigneur de Châteauroux, de Levroux, de la Châtre, du Châtelet, de Boussac, de Châteaumeillant, de Saint-Chartier et de Cluis-Dessous.  The Chronicon Dolensis records the death in 1112 of "Radulphus Senex, filius Radulphi-Theobaldi, VIII dominus Dolensis" and in 1141 of "Radulphus Senior Dolensis"[323].  It is possible that these were two individuals, the latter being the son of the former, but this is not without doubt.

Raoul [VI] & his wife had eight children: 

1.         RAOUL (-1136 or after).  La Thaumassière names “Raoul de Deols mort sans alliance, Eudes de Deols” as the two oldest sons of Raoul de Déols, but does not cite the primary source on which this information is based[324][1112/20].  1136. 

2.         EUDESLa Thaumassière names “Raoul de Deols mort sans alliance, Eudes de Deols” as the two oldest sons of Raoul de Déols, but does not cite the primary source on which this information is based[325]1112/1126.

a)         RAOUL [VII] (-Ravenna 27 Nov 1176, bur Ravenna).  A manuscript entitled "Progenies Dolensium Principum" names "Radulphus de Dolis" as son of "Ebbonis secundi"[330]The Gesta Ambaziensium names "duos filios…Hugonem et Herveum et duas filias Dionisiam…et Elizabeth" as the children of Sulpice [II] & his wife, specifying that Denise married "Eboni Dolis" by whom she was mother of "Radulfum et Odonem"[331]Seigneur de Déols et de Châteauroux.  Seigneur de Levroux, de la Châtre, d'Argenton (part), de Saint-Chartier, de Cluis-Dessous, du Châtelet et de Meillent.  A manuscript entitled "Généalogie de la noble et très-puissante lignée de Chauvigny" records that "Raoulx de Deoulx" died "en une Cité de Romanie…Ravenne" while returning from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem[332].  [m firstly --- de Sully, daughter of EUDES [Archambaud] Seigneur de Sully & his wife Mathilde de Baugency.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the unnamed sister of "Henricus frater Odo …[et] Egidii de Solleiro" as wife of "Radulfo filio Ebonis de oppido de Dolii" by whom she had "matrem Guilelmi de Cavingni qui per eam factus est domnus de castro Radulfi"[333].  The second part of this statement is disproved by the charter dated Apr 1216 quoted below which confirms that Raoul [VII]’s known wife Agnes de Charenton was the mother of his daughter Denise.  It is not known whether this means that the first part of Alberic’s statement is incorrect as well.  If it is correct, this person would have been Raoul’s first wife.  No charter has yet been identified which names her as Raoul’s wife.]  m [secondly] (before [1172/73]) as her first husband, AGNES de Charenton Dame de Meillent, daughter of EBLES [V] Seigneur de Charenton & his wife ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and first marriage has not yet been identified.  A manuscript entitled "Généalogie de la noble et très-puissante lignée de Chauvigny" names "Madame Aldevis, sœur du Roi Henri d'Angleterre" as wife of "Raoulx le Chauve" and mother of Denise[334], but the reference to the English king (Henry II?) in this text is inexplicable.  She married secondly (before 1182) Raoul de Linières Seigneur de Cluis-Dessous.  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not been identified.  Raoul [VII] & his [second] wife had one child: 

i)          DENISE ([1172/73]-1221, bur Déols).  A manuscript entitled "Progenies Dolensium Principum" names "Dionysia uxor Andreæ domini de Calveniaco" as the daughter of "Radulphi de Dolis"[335].  The Complete Peerage says that Denise was the daughter of Raoul [VII] by his second wife[336].  This is consistent with the manuscript entitled "Généalogie de la noble et très-puissante lignée de Chauvigny" quoted above, but contradicts the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois Fontaines which records the unnamed sister of "Henricus frater Odo …[et] Egidii de Solleiro" as the mother of "matrem Guilelmi de Cavingni qui per eam factus est domnus de castro Radulfi"[337].  If it is correct, as stated in the Complete Peerage, that Denise was three years old in 1176[338], the chronology appears tight for her father to have married again after Denise was born and before he died in 1176.  If that is correct, it is more probable that Denise was born from her father’s second marriage.  This suggestion is confirmed by a charter dated Apr 1216 under which [her son by her second husband] “Guillermus de Calvigniaco dominus Castri Radulphi” recorded that “Domina Agnes avia mea maritata fuit domino Radulpho avo meo cum castello et castellania de Mellant” which “dominus Ebo de Carentonio pater eiusdem domina” gave her “in maritagio[339].  The primary source which confirms Denise’s first marriage has not been identified.  The manuscript entitled "Généalogie de la noble et très-puissante lignée de Chauvigny" records the marriage of "Madame Denise de Deoulx" and "Seigneur André de Chauvigny, nepveu du Comte de Flandre"[340], although his connection with the family of the count of Flanders has not been traced.  Dionisia Dolensis domina filia Radulphi Dolensis domini” confirmed the freedoms granted to “Castelleto et de Castellania” by “Ebbo avus meus et Radulphus pater meus”, with the consent of “Guillelmo filio meo”, by charter dated 16 Jun 1203[341]The primary source which confirms her third marriage has not been identified.  The Chronicon Dolensis Cœnobii records the death in 1221 of "Dionysia, undecima domina Dolensis, uxor Andreæ Calviniaco"[342]m firstly (Betrothed 1177) BALDWIN de Reviers Earl of Devon, son of RICHARD de Reviers Earl of Devon & his wife Denise of Cornwall (-10 or 28 May 1188).  m secondly (Salisbury Aug 1189) ANDRE [I] de Chauvigny Seigneur de Chauvigny, son of --- (-1202 after 30 Aug).  Seigneur de Déols, de iure uxorism thirdly (after 16 Jun 1203, maybe repudiated before 1207) as his first wife, GUILLAUME [I] Comte de Sancerre, son of ETIENNE [I] Comte de Sancerre [Champagne-Blois] & his wife Alix [Mathilde] de Donzy (-Epirus 1217).

F.      SEIGNEURS d'ISSOUDUN

 

 

Issoudun is located north-east of Châteauroux in the present-day French département of Indre on the borders with the département of Cher.  It is on the border between the counties of Poitou and Bourges (see the document CENTRAL FRANCE NOBILITY), in the southern part of the Berry region.  It is difficult to categorise the seigneuries d’Issoudun satisfactorily for the purposes of Medieval Lands and has been placed arbitrarily in the present document.  No primary source has yet been found which identifies clearly the suzerain of the sires d’Issoudun.  The reconstruction shown below relies largely on information in La Thaumassière’s Histoire de Berry which does contain errors and fails to cite source references for a proportion of his data, although its inclusion of detailed references to numerous (uncited) donations (which have not otherwise been found) does inspire a certain degree of confidence in his narrative[365].  The reconstruction should therefore be viewed with some caution except where primary source references are shown. 

 

From La Thaumassière’s Histoire, it appears that many of the primary sources naming the Issoudun family are in the cartulary of the abbey of Notre-Dame d’Issoudun.  According to the entry in the cartulR database on the Telma website, this cartulary remains unpublished[366]

1.         EVRARD [d’Issoudun] (-after 1017).  Seigenur d’Issoudun.  He is called “Ebrard seigneur d’Issoudun” in the summary of the charter dated to [1100] which is quoted below, although the document itself does not include any geographical epithet.  La Thaumassière names “Ebrard du Four Prince d’Yssoudun, Seigneur de Vatan, de Romorantin et de Celles”, stating that he lived during the reign of Robert II King of France (988-1031), that he reestablished the priory of Dèvre, donated property to “l’abbaye de Vernusse” by charter which names his wife “Sibille”, and under his testament bequeathed “à sa femme les terres de Romorantin et de Celles, à Eudes son fils aîné Yssoudun, à Foulques Vatan et le terrage de Moüeres...ordonna qu’Ebrard son troisième seroit chanoine de saint Laurian et de saint Cyre, et Robert son cadet, chanoine de saint Eusice[371].  If La Thaumassière is correct, the charter dated to [1100] must be incorrectly dated.  Two sources have been identified which suggests that this is likely to be correct: "Evrardus" reestablished the priory of Dèvre by charter dated to [1017], witnessed by "Humbaldus Virsionis dominus et Gaufridus de Firmitate"[372].  "Evrardo Vestinensi vocabulo de Misera" restored its possessions to the priory of Dèvre by charter dated 1017, subscribed by "Euvrardus...atque filiis suis, Rotberti elemosinarii eius, Euvrardi alii, Roberti clerici, Adelardi, Guidonis, Goscelini, Hataline uxoris eius..."[373]m SIBYLLE, daughter of ---.  La Thaumassière records that “Ebrard du Four Prince d’Yssoudun, Seigneur de Vatan, de Romorantin et de Celles” donated property to “l’abbaye de Vernusse” by charter which names his wife “Sibille[374]Evrard & his wife had four children:

G.      SEIGNEURS d'ISSOUDUN (DEOLS)

 

 

No indication has been found about how the seigneurie d’Issoudun was transmitted to the Déols family.  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that a daughter of Eudes Seigneur d’Issoudun (see above) married the paternal grandfather of Eudes de Déols Seigneur d’Issoudun who is shown below. 

 

After the death in 1217 of Mathilde d’Issoudun without children, Issoudun was inherited by “Etienne de saint Palais et...Helie, Claude et Guillaume, enfans de Renoul Sire de Culant et de Beatrix sa femme, ses plus prochains heritiers[382].  These heirs exchanged Issoudun with Philippe II King of France as confirmed by three charters dated between 1217 and 1221.  Firstly, by charter dated May 1217 King Philippe II confirmed the division into parts of “feodum de Virsone et sicut dominus de Virsone illud tenebat et tenere debebat a domino Exolduni” made by “Heliæ de Culent et Stephano de S. Palacio”, confirming that they held “Vestan sicut dominus Exolduni illud tenebat a comite Blesis”, two thirds of which the king transferred to them in exchange for “feodum de Charrotio sicut dominus de Charrotio illud tenebat a domino Exolduni et feodum de Lineriis sicut domini de Lineriis illud tenuerunt a domino Exolduni et illud quod Robertus de Bosmez tenuit de dominis Exolduni[383].  King Philippe II granted property "à Vatan" to "Etienne de Saint-Palais" in exchange for “la portion d’Issoudun qui [lui] revenait” by charter dated [29 Mar/Aug] 1220[384].  “Radulphus de Culent prior Vastinensis avunculus et tutor hæredum de Culent” granted “juris habebamus in castro Exolduni” to Philippe II King of France, in exchange for “tertiam partem Castri-novi super Carum fluvium et tertiam partem Marolii super Arvon fluvium, sicut Radulphus quondam dominus Exolduni ea tenuit...post decessum quondam uxoris defuncti Radulfi domini Exolduni quæ fuit filia Petri comitis Nivernensis eiusdem regis consanguinei”, by charter dated Jul 1221[385].  The precise relationship between the Issoudun family and Etienne de Saint-Palais and the Culant family has not been ascertained.

Two [sisters or first cousins].  They were closely related to the Issoudun family as their sons were heirs to Issoudun in 1217: La Thaumassière records that, after the death in 1217 of Mathilde d’Issoudun childless, Issoudun was inherited by “Etienne de saint Palais et...Helie, Claude et Guillaume, enfans de Renoul Sire de Culant et de Beatrix sa femme, ses plus prochains heritiers” who exchanged Issoudun with Philippe II King of France[432].  The precise relationship has not been traced. 

1.         --- m --- Seigneur de Saint-Palais, son of ---. 

2.         [BEATRIX (-after 1187)La Thaumassière records that “Renoul I Sire de Culant” donated property to Noirlac abbey, with the consent of “Beatrix sa femme”, by charter dated 1181, but does not cite the source reference[433].  The family of Beatrix is not known.  However, she was presumably related to the Issoudun family in order to explain how her children were co-heirs to Issoudun in 1217.  Beatrix is shown in square brackets in this part because it is possible that the connection with the Issoudun family was through the mother, not the wife, of Renoul [I].  La Thaumassière records that “Renoul I Sire de Culant” donated pasturage rights “en ses bois de Corser” to the abbey des Pierres, with the consent of “Beatrix sa femme...et de ses enfants Helie, Guillaume et Renaud”, by charter dated 1187, but does not cite the source reference[434]m RENOUL [I] Seigneur de Culant, son of GUILLAUME Seigneur de Culant & his wife --- (-after 1187).] 

 

 

 

H.      SEIGNEURS de MORTEMER

 

 

The town now known as Morthemer is situated in the canton of Chauvigny, arrondissement Montmorillon, in the present-day French département of Vienne, due east of Poitiers.  The relationship, if any, between the Mortemer family of Poitou and the Mortimer family of Normandy and England (see ENGLAND, EARLS) has not yet been traced.  No connection has been found between this family and “--- de Mortemart”, possible wife of Aimery [IX] Vicomte de Rochechouart, whose marriage is dated to [1205] and about whom little definite information has been found (as discussed in LIMOUSIN).  “Mortemart” is probably the village which lies about 30 kilometres north-west of Limoges.

[Four] siblings.  An indication of the identity of their family origin is provided by the charter quoted below which names “Guido Marchie” as “avunculus” of Raoul de Mortemer.  The name “Guido Marchie [genitive singular]”, without “de” in contrast to the description of Raoul in the same document, suggests that Guy was named “La Marche” to indicate his place of residence rather than any territorial suzerainty.  If “avunculus” was used in its strict sense of maternal uncle, the document provides an indication of Raoul’s maternal family (assuming that the document in question does relate to Raoul de Mortemer named below). 

1.         RAOUL de Mortemer (-after 1211).  [An undated charter records the donation of property "apud Karroffum" to Charroux made by "Guido Marchie" on his deathbed, the subsequent dispute between the abbey and “Radulphum de Mortemar nepotem ipsius” and the settlement on the advice of “Audeberti comitis” [Audebert [IV] Comte de la Marche, until 1178], which involved donations made by “idem Radulphus” for the soul of “avunculi sui Guidonis supradictum[474].  If this charter is dated to [1170/78], it would be possible from a chronological point of view that it relates to the same Raoul de Mortemer who is named in the other sources quoted below.]  During an enquiry into the rights of the vicomte de Châtellerault to "castro Sancti Remigii", one witness testified that "Jocelinus de Montoere" held "Castri-Aeraudi…castrum…ratione vicecomitisse castri Aeraudi uxoris sue", and that "dominus Radulfus de Mortemer" succeeded him "pro tutela filiorum et filiarum dicti Jocelini qui erant sui nepotes" [children of his sister, see below][475].  "Hugo de Surgeriis, vicecomes Castri Airaudi" confirmed that "Hugo, beate Marie Castri Airaudi et beati Hylarii Pictavensis decanus" on his deathbed had bequeathed revenue to Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers by charter dated 1211, witnessed by "Radulfo de Mortemario fratre predicti decani…"[476]

2.         HUGUES de Mortemer (-before 1211).  Sub-deacon of Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers.  “Hugonis domini Castri Airaudi” consented to a donation by “G[alfridus] decanus” of the church at Poitiers by charter dated to [21 Apr 1196/6 Apr 1197], witnessed by "…Hugone subdecano, Willelmo de Mortemaris, archdiacono Pictavensi…"[477].  Deacon of Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers.  "Hugo de Surgeriis, vicecomes Castri Airaudi" confirmed that "Hugo, beate Marie Castri Airaudi et beati Hylarii Pictavensis decanus" on his deathbed had bequeathed revenue to Saint-Hilaire de Poitiers by charter dated 1211, witnessed by "Radulfo de Mortemario fratre predicti decani…"[478]

3.         [GUILLAUME de Mortemer (-after [1196/97]).  Archdeacon of Poitiers.  “Hugonis domini Castri Airaudi” consented to a donation by “G[alfridus] decanus” of the church at Poitiers by charter dated to [21 Apr 1196/6 Apr 1197], witnessed by "…Hugone subdecano, Willelmo de Mortemaris, archdiacono Pictavensi…"[479].  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.]  

4.         MARGUERITE de Mortemer (-after 1190).  "Hamericus clericus filius domini Guillelmi Castri Ayraudi et Margarite uxoris eius" donated property to the abbey of Bécheron by charter dated Oct 1223 which names "fratres sui Guillelmus…et Renaudus et Guido et Hugo"[480].  During an enquiry into the rights of the vicomte de Châtellerault to "castro Sancti Remigii", one witness testified that "Jocelinus de Montoere" held "Castri-Aeraudi…castrum…ratione vicecomitisse castri Aeraudi uxoris sue", and that "dominus Radulfus de Mortemer" succeeded him "pro tutela filiorum et filiarum dicti Jocelini qui erant sui nepotes"[481]m firstly GUILLAUME Vicomte de Châtellerault, son of HUGUES [II] Vicomte de Châtellerault & his first wife Aenor --- (-Acre 1188).  m secondly JOSCELIN de Lezay dit de Montoiron, son of ---.  Benedict of Peterborough names "…Jocelinus de Munmorenc, vicecomes de Castello Haraldi…" among those who died at the siege of Acre in 1190[482].  He succeeded as Vicomte de Châtellerault, by right of his wife.
