The same year he and his wife, Anne, were granted an annuity of £60 for the term of their lives.

; "...reviewing Clay's Extinct and Dormant Peerages, I see under his account of the Roos family on pg. 183 that he lists a daughter Maud for William de Roos, 2nd Lord Roos, and his wife, Margery de Badlesmere. He says this Maud de Roos married "John, 4th Lord Welles." He doesn't give any source for Maud's marriage. But under her sister, Margaret, he cites "Rievaulx Cart., pg. 361" which source presumably has information on the Roos family. If correct, quite possibly the Rievaulx Cartulary might provide some additional documentation for Maud de Roos' existence and her marriage to John de Welle(s)."4

     BIRTH     25 Mar 1406, East Barnet, London Borough of Barnet, Greater London, England
     DEATH     22 May 1455 (aged 49), St Albans, St Albans District, Hertfordshire, England
     English Aristocrat. Born the son of Sir John de Beaufort, 1st Earl of Somerset and Lady Margaret de Holand, he was granted the title of Count of Mortain in April 1427. He married Lady Eleanor Beauchamp sometime between 1431 and 1435 in a unlicensed marriage, although he was pardoned in March 1438. The marriage produced ten children. He was invested as a Knight, Order of the Garter by May 1436. By 1440 he succeeded in recapturing Harfleur in Normandy. He was created 1st Earl of Dorset in August 1442; was created Marquess of Dorset in June 1443; and succeeded to the title of 4th Earl of Somerset in May 1444. That year, England settled a truce with France, ceding Anjou and Maine in an unpopular move. In a breach of the truce, Somerset surprised the town of Fougères, capturing it and refused to give it up or exchange it. He was created 1st Duke of Somerset in March 1448, and the following year was hard pressed by French partisans and gave up seven English strongholds in France and also paid a ransom in order to obtain safe passage for his wife, children, and goods. During the campaign of 1450, English troops were decimated at Formigny, and Somerset's garrison at Caen capitulated after a three weeks' siege. He then tried and failed to re-establish the English in Gascony. His king, Henry VI, suffered intermittent bouts of mental instability and during one such, the Duke of York took the role of protector and sent Somerset to the Tower. He was saved by the king's recovery and restored to power. He was made captain of Calais, but the dynastic feud that would grow into the Wars of the Roses had been ignited. In May 1455 at St. Albans, Hertfordshire, Somerset faced York and the Earl of Warwick with 2,000 troops against half again as many Yorkists. After several hours of negotiations, the two armies clashed. During a charge by Warwick, the Lancastrians were routed and Somerset killed. Bio by: Iola

; "Richard de Beauchamp, 5th earl, b. 28 January, 1381. This nobleman was made a knight of the Bath at the coronation of King Henry IV., and at the coronation of the Queen in the following year, attained high reputation for the gallantry he had displayed in the lists. In the 4th year of the same monarch (1402-3), he was pre-eminently distinguished against Owen Glendower, whose banner he captured, and put the rebel himself to flight; and about the same time he won fresh laurels in the memorable battle of Shrewsbury, against the Percys, after which he as made a knight of the most noble order of the Garter. Of his lordship's pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Dugdale gives the following account: - 'In the 9th Henry IV. [1407/8], obtaining license to visit the Holy Land, he fitted himself with all necessaries for that journey, and passed the sea: in which voyage, visiting his cousin, the Duke of Barr, he was nobly received and entertained by him for eight days, who thence accompanied him to Paris; where being arrived, the king of France then wearing the crown, in reverence of that holy feast, made him to sit at his table, and at his departure sent an herald to conduct him safely through that realm. Out of which, entering Lumbardy, he was met by another herald from Sir Pandulph Malacet, with a challenge to perform certain feats of arms with him at Verona, upon a day assigned, for the order of the Garter; and in the presence of Sir Galiot of Mantua; whereunto he gave his assent. And as soon as he had performed his pilgrimage at Rome, returned to Verona, where he and his challenger were first to just, next to fight with axes, afterwards with arming swords, and lastly with sharp daggers. At the day and place assigned for which exercises, came great resort of people, Sir Pandulph entering the lists with nine spears borne before him: but the act of spears being ended, they fell to it with axes; in which encounter Sir Pandulph received a sore wound on the shoulder and had been utterly slain, but that Sir Galiot cried peace. 'When he came to Jerusalem, he had much respect shewed him by the patriarch's deputy, and having performed his offerings at the sepulchre of our Saviour, he set up his arms on the north side of the temple. While at Jerusalem, a noble person, called Baltredam (the Soldan's lieutenant), hearing that he was descended from the famous Sir Guy of Warwick, whose story they had in books of their own language, invited him to his palace, and royally feasting him, 'presented him with three precious stones of great value.' besides divers cloaths of silk and gold given to his servants. Where this Baltredam told him privately, that he faithfully believed as he did, though he durst not discover himself; and rehearsed the articles of the creed. But on the morrow he feasted Sir Baltredam's servants, and gave them scarlet, with other English cloth, which being shewed to Sir Baltredam, he returned again to him, and said, he would wear his livery and be marshal of his hall. Whereupon he gave Sir Baltredam a gown of black peak, furred: and had much discourse with him, for he was skilful in sundry languages.' At the coronation of King Henry V., in whose service, when Prince of Wales, his lordship had been engaged, the earl was constituted High Steward of England for the solemnity, and in the next year, we find him actively engaged for the king against the Lollards. In the 3rd of Henry V (1415-16) he was at Calais, and there his chivalric disposition led him into an encounter with three French knights...[he wins]...and so rode to Calais with great honor. About this time the earl attended the deputation of bishops and other learned persons from England to the Council of Constance, and during his stay there slew a great duke in justing. In the next year, he was with King Henry at the siege of Caen, and upon the surrender of that place was appointed governor of its castle. His lordship continued actively engaged in military and diplomatic services during the remainder of the reign of King Henry V., by whose will he was appointed governor to his infant son and successor, Henry VI., which charge having fulfilled with great wisdom and fidelity, his lordship was appointed, upon the death of John Plantagenet, Duke of Bedford, Regent of France, Lieutenant-General of the whole realm of France and Duchy of Normandy. The earl, who had been created Earl of Albemarle, for life, in 1417, d. in the castle of Roan, in his French government, on 30 April 1439 - having by his will ordered his body to be brought over to England, where it was afterwards deposited, under a stately monument*, [*This magnificent tomb (which yet remains in uncommon in London (?) is inferior to none in England, unless that of Henry VII. in Westminster Abbey.] appointed by the deceased lord to be erected in the collegiate church of St. Mary, at Warwick...The Earl of Warwick was s. by his son, Henry de Beauchamp..."14 He was hereditary Sheriff of Worcestershire.4 He was Count of Aumale by Henry V on 19 May 1419.1

     "JOAN OF ENGLAND was married for the second time, clandestinely, presumably early in 1297, to RALPH DE MONTHERMER. He was born in 1262 of unknown parentage, and had been a squire in the late Earl's household. The marriage enraged her father, the King, and he committed Ralph to prison in Bristol Castle, and all Joan's lands were seized into the King's hand. By the mediation of Anthony Bec, Bishop of Durham, however, peace was made between the King and his daughter, and her lands were restored to her on 31 July 1297, Ralph having done homage. The King afterwards became much attached to his new son-in-law, who was summoned to Parliament as Earl of Gloucester and Hertford during the minority of his step-son, Gilbert de Dare. He was at the siege of Carlaverock in the summer of 1300. JOAN OF ENGLAND died, aged thirty-five, on 23 Apr. 1307, and was buried in the Austin Friars' at Clare, Suffolk. Ralph de Monthermer was summoned to Parliament from 4 Mar. 1308/9 by writs directed Raulpho de Monte Hermerii, and was granted the barony of Erlestoke, co. Wilts. He fought at Bannockburn in 1314. In December 1315 he had permission to go on pilgrimage to Santiago of Compostella in Spain. He was married for the second time before 20 Nov. 1318 to Isabel le Despenser, widow of John de Hastings, of Ashill, Norfolk (died 1313), and daughter of Hugh le Despenser, Earl of Winchester, by Isabel, daughter of William de Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick. RALPH DE MONTHERMER [Lord Monthermer] died testate aged sixty-three on 10 May or 5 Apr. 1325, and was buried at Grey Friars', Salisbury.

; Per Med Lands:
     "RALPH de Monthermer, son of --- ([1261/62]-5 Apr 1325, bur Salisbury, Grey Friars Church). He was a member of the household of Gilbert Earl of Gloucester and Hereford, and was secretly married to his widow. He was imprisoned by the King at Bristol when he learned of this marriage, but pardoned at Eltham 2 Aug 1297[1887]. He was styled Earl of Gloucester and Hertford after his marriage but never acquired full comital rank. He lost the name of earl on his wife's death[1888]. He was created Earl of Atholl 12 Oct 1306, but he resigned this earldom 24 Jun 1307 in favour of David of Strathbogie. He was summoned to parliament 4 Mar 1309, whereby he is held to have become Lord Monthermer. King Edward II granted “manerium de Stoke in Hamme” to “Radulpho de Monte Hermerii et Thomæ et Edwardo filiis eius, nepotibus nostris” and other properties by charter dated 16 Sep 1309[1889].
     "m firstly (secretly early 1297 or [12 May/3 Jul] 1297) as her second husband, JOAN of England "of Acre", widow of GILBERT de Clare Earl of Gloucester and Hertford, daughter of EDWARD I King of England & his first wife Infanta doña Leonor de Castilla (Acre, Palestine Spring 1272-Clare Manor, Suffolk 23 Apr 1307, bur 26 Apr 1307 Priory Church of the Austin Friars, Clare, Suffolk). The Annals of Dunstable record that “comitssa Gloverniæ, filia domini regis” married “cuidam militia sine assensu regio” in 1296[1890]. The primary source which confirms her second marriage more precisely has not yet been identified. This marriage was clandestine. The king, her father, did not know that Joan was already married when he agreed 16 Mar 1297 her marriage to Amédée Comte de Savoie. He confiscated Joan's lands 3 Jul 1297 when he found out about the marriage, but pardoned her 2 Aug 1297[1891]. A manuscript history of the foundation of Dunmow Priory records the death in 1307 of “Johanna de Acres comitissa de Clare” and her burial “in ecclesia fratrum S. Augustini apud Clare”[1892].
     "m secondly (before 20 Nov 1318) as her second husband, ISABEL le Despencer, widow of JOHN de Hastings Lord Hastings, daughter of HUGH le Despencer Lord le Despencer [later Earl of Winchester] & his wife Isabel de Beauchamp of Warwick (-4/5 Dec 1334). King Edward II pardoned “Radulphus de Montehermerii” for marrying “Isabellam quæ fuit uxor Johannis de Hastinges defuncti” without royal consent by charter dated 12 Aug 1319[1893]."

     "THIBAUT de Champagne, son of THIBAUT III Comte de Champagne & his wife Infanta doña Blanca de Navarra (Pamplona 3 May 1201-Pamplona 8 Jul 1253, bur Pamplona). Villehardouin records that the wife of Comte Thibaut "had borne him a little daughter and was about to bear a son" when her husband died[615]. He succeeded his father in 1201 as THIBAUT IV Comte de Champagne et de Brie. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "comes Campaniensis Theobaldus" joined his [maternal] uncle in Navarre in 1225[616]. He succeeded his maternal uncle in 1234 as TEOBALDO I "le Grand" King of Navarre. He answered the call of Pope Gregory IX for a Crusade in 1239, and led a French contingent which landed at Acre 1 Sep 1239. He marched south to attack the Egyptian outposts of Ascalon and Gaza, where they were defeated. He returned to Europe in Sep 1240[617]. The necrology of Sens cathedral records the death "Kal Mai " of "Theobaldus illustris rex Navarre et comes Campanie"[618]. The necrology of Saint-Etienne, Troyes records the death "11 Jul" of "Theobaldus rex Navarre, Campanie et Brie comes palatinus"[619]. The "Corónicas" Navarras record the death "Id Iul…apud Pampilonam" in 1253 of "Teobaldus…rex Navarre et comes palatinus Campanie atque Brie" and his burial in Pamplona[620].
     "[621]Betrothed (1219) MARGARET of Scotland, daughter of WILLIAM I "the Lion" King of Scotland & his wife Ermengarde de Beaumont (1193-1259, bur Church of the Black Friars, London).
     "m firstly (mid-May 1220, repudiated 1222) as her second husband, GERTRUD von Dagsburg, widow of THIBAUT I Duke of Lorraine, daughter of ALBERT II Graf von Dagsburg & his wife Gertrud von Baden ([May 1205/mid-1206]-before 19 Mar 1225). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the second marriage in 1220 of "Gertrudem comitissam de Daburc [relictam Theobaldi iuvenis dux Lotharingie]" and "iuvenis comes Theobaldus Campaniensis" and their separation two years later on grounds of consanguinity[622]. Richer records that "ducem Lotoringie Theobaldum" was married to "filiam comitis de Daxporc", that he inherited the county through her, that after her first husband died she married "comes…Campanie adhuc adolescens" who in his turn inherited the county, that she was repudiated for sterility by her second husband and married thirdly "comiti de Lignigne", and that after the couple's death soon afterwards there were no heirs to her county which (including "castra…Hernestem et Turquestem, et…opida…Albam et Saleborc") was annexed by "Metensis episcopus Iohannes" but that "frater…dicti comitis defuncti" captured "castrum Daxporc"[623]. She married thirdly (1224 before Sep) Simon von Leiningen.
     "m secondly (1222) AGNES de Beaujeu, daughter of GUICHARD [V] “le Grand” Sire de Beaujeu & his wife Sibylle de Hainaut [Flanders] (-11 Jul 1231, bur Clairvaux). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the second marriage of "Theobaldus comes Campaniensis" and "Agnetem sororem Humberti filiam Wichardi de Belloioco"[624]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death "1231 V Id Jul" of "Agnes comitissa Campanie" and her burial "in Clarevalle in capella comitis Flandrie matris sue avunculi"[625].
     "[626]Betrothed ([1231/32]) to YOLANDE de Bretagne, daughter of PIERRE Duke of Brittany & his first wife Alix de Thouars (in Brittany end 1218-château de Bouteville 10 Oct 1272, bur Villeneuve-les-Nantes, église abbatiale de Notre Dame). Her betrothal to Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne is confirmed by a letter from King Louis IX to Comte Thibaut, dated 1229, which states that the king had “entendu que vous avez convenancé et promis à prendre à femme la fille du Comte Pierre de Bretaigne” and forbade him from proceeding, adding “la raison pourquoi vous savez bien” (without providing any further explanation)[627]. The 1229 date (cited by Lobineau) is presumably incorrect, assuming that the date of death of Comte Thibaut´s second wife is correctly reported as 11 Jul 1231 as shown above. This suggested redating is confirmed by a letter from Pope Gregory IX to the archbishop of Bourges dated 24 Apr 1232 stating that “Campaniæ et Britanniæ comites” intended to arrange a marriage alliance prohibited by the degrees of consanguinity and forbidding the arrangement[628].
     "m thirdly (contract Mar 1232, 22 Sep 1232) MARGUERITE de Bourbon, daughter of ARCHAMBAUD [VIII] "le Grand" Sire de Bourbon [Dampierre] & his wife [Beatrix de Montluçon] (-Provins, Brie 12 Apr 1256, bur Clairval). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the marriage of "comes Campaniensis Theobaldus" and "Margaretam filiam Erchenbaldi de Borbona"[629]. The contract of marriage between “Theobaldus Campanie et Brie comes palatinus” and “Archambaldus dominus Borbonii…Margarita filia” is dated Mar 1232[630]. She was regent of Champagne and Navarre 1253-1256 during the minority of her son. "Don Alfonso, yffante primero fijo del rey d´Aragon" consented to any alliance between "mio padre don Jagme…rey d´Aragon" and "dona Margarita…reyna de Navarra, de Campayna et de Bria condessa palatina, et con vuestro fijo don Thibalt rey de Navarra", by charter dated 1 Aug 1253[631]. “Marguerite…royne de Navarre, de Champaigne et de Brye conteste palatine” settled a dispute between “les nobles barons Jehan conte de Bourgoigne et signour de Salins…et Thiebaut conte de Barz” by charter dated 3 Nov 1254[632]. The necrology of Saint-Etienne, Troyes records the death "29 Mar" of "Margarita regina Navarre"[633]. The necrology of the Chapelle Saint-Blaise, Provins records the death on 29 Mar of "Margarita regina"[634]. The "Corónicas" Navarras record the death "II Id Apr…apud Privignum" in 1256 of "Margarita…regina Navarre, commitissa Canpanie atque Brie" and her burial in "apud Claram vallem"[635].

; Per Wikipedia:
     "Peter I (French: Pierre; c. 1187 – 26 May 1250), also known as Peter Mauclerc, was Duke of Brittany jure uxoris from 1213 to 1221, and regent of the duchy for his minor son John I from 1221 to 1237. As duke he was also 1st Earl of Richmond from 1218 to 1235.
Origins
     "Peter was the second son of Robert II, Count of Dreux and Yolande de Coucy.[1] The latter was in turn the son of Robert I, Count of Dreux, a younger brother of Louis VII of France. Peter was thus a Capetian, a second cousin of Louis VIII of France.
     "Despite being of royal descent, as the younger son of a cadet branch Peter's early prospects were that of a minor noble, with a few scattered fiefs in the Île-de-France and Champagne. He was initially destined for a career in the clergy, which he later renounced, earning him the nickname Mauclerc (French: mauvais clerc, bad-cleric). He broke the convention of ecclesiastical heraldry by placing on the canton of his paternal arms the ermine, then reserved for the clergy.[citation needed]
Accession
     "In 1212 King Philip II of France needed to find a weak and faithful ruler for Brittany. The duchy lay athwart the sea lanes between England and the English territories in Gascony. Furthermore, it bordered on Anjou and Normandy, which the English had lost ten or twelve years before and were eager to recover. It was being ruled with less than a strong hand by Guy of Thouars, as regent for his young daughter Alix. Also worrisome was that Alix's older half-sister Eleanor, Fair Maid of Brittany, was in an English prison.
     "King Philip thus broke off the betrothal of Alix and the Breton lord Henry of Penthièvre, and turned to his French cousin Peter, then in his early twenties. Peter married Alix, and on 27 January 1213, paid homage to the king for Brittany.
     "There is some ambiguity regarding whether Peter should be considered duke or count. The duchy was legally held by his wife. The King of France and the Pope (and their courts) always addressed him as count, but Peter in his own charters called himself duke.
Relations with the English
     "In 1214 King John of England had assembled a formidable coalition against the French. He landed in Poitou while King Otto of Germany prepared to invade from the north. John chased off some French forces in the north of Poitou, and then moved to the southern edge of Brittany, opposite Nantes. Peter drove him off after a brief skirmish but did nothing to hinder John's subsequent movement up the Loire valley where he took a few Breton fortresses and then besieged La Roche-aux-Moines. John's Poitevin vassals, however, refused to fight against a French force led by the King of France's son Louis. Meanwhile, Otto's army was crushed at Bouvines, and the entire invasion foundered.
     "It is not clear why John attempted to capture Nantes, even less why he would do so the hardest way, via the very well-defended bridge across the Loire. Nor is it clear why Peter declined to harass his forces from the rear as John marched east. A likely explanation is that the two had come to some sort of agreement whereby John would leave Brittany alone for the moment, and in return the Bretons would not hinder him elsewhere.
     "John had a prize he could dangle in front of Peter: the Earldom of Richmond. This great English honour (land) had traditionally been held by the dukes of Brittany, and in fact a constant theme in Peter's political affairs was the desire to hold and retain the English revenues from Richmond.
Peter did not yield to King John's offers to accept the earldom and take up the King's side in his conflicts with the English barons, probably because he deemed the King's prospects too uncertain. Moreover, Louis was again fighting against the English. But when Louis was defeated, Peter was sent as one of the negotiators for a peace treaty. After the negotiations were completed (in 1218), William Marshal, the regent for the young Henry III of England, recognized Peter as Earl of Richmond, in place of Eleanor of Brittany who, as a potential threat to English crown, would never be released from imprisonment. The center of the earldom's properties in Yorkshire was in the hands of the Earl of Chester, whom the regent could not afford to antagonize, but Peter did receive the properties of the earldom outside of Yorkshire, which in fact generated the bulk of the earldom's income. In 1219 he participated in the capture of Marmande and the Siege of Toulouse during the Albigensian Crusade.
Consolidation of power
     "Peter turned his attention to his next goal. The authority of the dukes of Brittany had traditionally been weak, in comparison to the great peers of northern France. For example, the duke could not limit the building of castles by his counts. Nor did he have the right to guardianship of minor heirs of his vassals. Peter aimed to re-establish his relationship with his vassals (or subjects) more along the lines of what he knew from the Capetian royal court. To that end Peter simply declared new rules by fiat, and then faced the inevitable turmoil that resulted from the reaction of his barons. There followed a series of small civil wars and political maneuverings. In 1222 he suppressed a revolt by Breton barons in the Battle of Châteaubriant. By 1223, the barons had all acquiesced to the changes or been dispossessed.
     "The six Breton bishops were the other threat to the ducal power, for they had substantial landholdings (including control of all or part of the few cities in Brittany), and were recalcitrant in the face of Peter's attempts to raise revenues by increasing taxes or simply taking possession of episcopal holdings. For this he was excommunicated for a time in 1219–1221. Peter submitted in the end, but this was not to be the last of his conflict with the bishops.
Regency
     "Peter's wife died on 21 October 1221, leaving behind four young children. She was then only 21, and little is known about her beyond the basic genealogical facts. Her death meant that Peter was no longer duke, although he continued to rule the Duchy with undiminished authority, as regent for his son John, then a boy of four or so.
     "Alix's death changed Peter's goals in two ways. First, he aimed to acquire some additional territory, not part of the Duchy, to augment his retirement after his son came of age. Second, there was a strong tradition in France that a minor heir should, when coming of age, have his property in the state it was in when he inherited it. Thus Peter could not now take some risks without fear of harming the prospects of his son.
     "Peter helped Philip II's successor, Louis VIII, in his fight against Henry III of England (in the sieges of Niort and La Rochelle in 1224). He also accompanied Louis VIII by joining the Albigensian Crusade, but with the latter's death, he participated, with Count Theobald IV of Champagne and Count Hugh X of La Marche, in rebellions against the regent Blanche of Castile, between 1227 and 1234.[2] Around this time he renounced his allegiance to the king of England and suffered forfeiture of his English earldom.[3]
Crusades and death
     "Peter's son John reached the age of majority in 1237. Peter Mauclerc then participated in the Barons' Crusade to the Holy Land in 1239. While there, Peter's troops along with some local knights were attacked by heavily armed Mamluk cavalry, firing their bows, but the crusader force managed to outflank and defeat them, taking a few prisoners with them back to Jaffa.
     "In early November, two days into a march from Acre to Ascalon, Peter and his lieutenant Raoul de Soissons split off from the main force to conduct a raid. They divided their force in half and each waited in ambush along a possible route for the Muslim caravan which was moving up the Jordan to Damascus. Peter's half clashed with the Muslims outside of a castle, and after some fighting, he sounded his horn to summon Raoul. The Muslims were routed and fled inside the castle, where Peter's men followed them, killed many, took some captives, and seized the booty and edible animals of the caravan.[4] This minor victory would soon be overshadowed by a serious defeat at Gaza.
     "Back in France, he won some success against the English at sea in 1242 and 1243. In 1249, he participated in the Seventh Crusade to Egypt under King Louis IX. He died at the sea before he was able to return home. He was buried in Braine, France.
Marriages and children
     "Peter was married three times:
     "His first wife was Alix of Thouars, Duchess of Brittany (1201-1221).[1] Alix and Peter had three children:
** John I (to 1217-1286), duke of Brittany;[1]
** Yolande of Brittany (1218-10/10/1272), married (January 1236) to Hugh XI of Lusignan, Seigneur de Lusignan, Count of la Marche and Angoulême
** Arthur of Brittany (1220-1224)

     "His second wife was Nicole (died February 1232). Nicole and Peter had a son:
** Oliver de Braine at an unknown age (1231-1279), who inherited the Lordship of Machecoul (became Oliver I of Machecoul and founded the Machecoul branch of the House of Dreux).

     "His third wife was Marguerite de Montaigu, Lady of Montaigu, Commequiers, La Garnache[b] then Machecoul,[c] and widow of Hugh I de Thouars (died 1230), a brother to Guy of Thouars; this made Marguerite a paternal line aunt of Alix. They married by 1236, and had no issue.
Notes
a. Braine refers possibly to Braine, Aisne
b. The communities of Montaigu, Commequiers, and La Garnache are all in the Vendee.
c. Machecoul is in the Loire Atlantique and borders the Vendee.

It is not known which daughter was betrothed to the Duke of Brittany, but it is a reasonable assumption that it was Marie who was the older of the queen’s two daughters.
     "m secondly ([1230]) NICOLE, daughter of --- (-Feb 1232, bur Villeneuve-les-Nantes, Abbaye de Notre-Dame). Her marriage is confirmed by an epitaph at Villeneuve which records the burial of "Nicolle, la mère monsour Olivier de Machecou"[352], read together with the charter dated 10 Mar 1258 under which "Jehan duc de Bretaigne conte de Richemont" confirmed an agreement between "Morice de Belle Ville, par raison de Jehanne sa femme, dame de la Roche sur Yon et de Luçon" and "Olivier nostre frère" concerning "la terre de Machecoul et de Saint Philbert"[353].

"Petrus dux Britanie, comes Richemundie, dominus Gasnapie et Margarita uxor eius" confirmed donations to the abbey Blanche de Noirmoutier by charter dated 1236[354]. The difficulties connected with identifying Marguerite’s correct parentage are discussed in the section showing the seigneurs de Montaigu in the document POITOU -WESTERN. "Margarita uxor…Petri de Brana, Montis Acuti et Gasnapie domina" confirmed the same donations to the abbey Blanche de Noirmoutier by charter dated 1239[355]. "Margarita domina Gasnapie, Montis Acuti et Machecolii" confirmed the donation of a marsh made to Buzay by "le curé de Bouin" by charter dated Jul 1239[356]. "Margarita Montis Acuti et Guasnapiæ domina et hæres" donated property to the abbey of Geneston, with the consent of "viro nostro Petro de Brana", by charter dated 27 Nov 1241[357]. A charter dated 27 Nov 1241, contained in a vidimus dated 6 May 1644, records that “Margarita Montis Acuti et Ganachiæ domina et heres” donated property to the hospital at Montaigu, with the consent of “viro nostro Petro de Brana”[358].
