Biography

  • Birth: Waleran Of Meulan Beaumont was born in 1104 in Leicester, Leicestershire, England.
  • Death: He died on April 9, 1166, at age ~62, in Preaux, Normandy, France.
  • Burial: He was buried in Abbey, Preaux, Normandy, France.
  • Occupation: He was an Earl of Worcester.
  • Note: 1st Earl of Worcester He was the son of Robert de Beaumont, 1st Earl of Leicester and Elizabeth de Vermandois, the twin brother of Robert de Beaumont, 2nd Earl of Leicester. He also known as Waleran de Bellomonte, or William of Wigonia. At his father's death he received as his share of the inheritance, the Norman estates at Meulan and Beaumont. He also owned the manor of Vatteville on the left bank of the Seine. In September 1118 he remained faithful to King Henry I during the rebellon which broke out. But in 1123 he was drawn into a conspiracy with William Clito, son of Robert Curthose. He was defeated by William de Harcourt at the Battle of Bourgteronde 26 March 1124, he fled to Brienne; on Henry's approach he withdrew to his castle at Beaumont. The King captured his castles at Brienne and Pont Audemar, the latter after a seven weeks siege, and burnt his towns of Montfort, Brienne and Pont Audemar. He also deprived him of his title of Count of Meulan. In the following year, 24 March 1124, he proceeded to the relief of his tower of Vatteville, he had with him his three brothers-in-law, Hugh de Chateau Neuf, Hugh de Montfort and William, Lord of Breval. Very early in the morning they assaulted the entrenchments which the King had thrown up round the castle and they endeavoured to force a convoy of provisions through to the besieged. But Waleran and the two Hughs and about eighty men at arms were captured and closely confined for five years, first at Rouen and then in England. The King had now reduced all Waleran's castles except that at Beaumont; which he ordered him to deliver up and Waleran being a prisoner he realised that discretion was the better part of valour, and fearing to expose himself to greater peril if he refused, he sent a messenger to Morim who had charge of his affairs to give it up without delay. He was afterwards pardoned, but again rebelled declaring for William of Normandy, nephew of King Henry. The Royalist forces captured his castles at Brienne and Pont Audemar. By 1135 he had regained the King's confidence, for he and his twin brother were both present at Henry's deathbed. He then took up Stephen's cause and in the spring of 1136 he went to Normandy and in the autumn of that yeas captured Roger de Toeni. He remained there till the following spring and then returned to England, the next year he was made Joint Lieutenant of Normandy, soon after he crossed the Channel again, in order to suppress a rising against the English government. Towaras the end of 1158 he returned to England and was then sent north to attack the Scots, driving them out of the castle of Wark, he was probably present at the Battle of the Standard at Northallerton when the Scots wera completely defeated.

    By this time he had become chief adviser to the King and he defended him in his controversy with the Bishops of Salisbury and Ely at the Council of Oxford. Matters came to a crisis, a riot followed, the Bishop was seized and imprisoned, this was followed by civil war. Robert, 1st Earl of Gloucester attacked Worcester in October 1139 on behalf of the Empress Maud; he destroyed a considerable portion of the city and carried off a large amount of plunder; on the 13 November Waleran attacked and defeated John FitzHarold, who was serving under the Earl of Gloucester, he then re-entered the city and captured many prisoners. He was in chief command at the Battle of Lincoln in 1141, when he saw that the battle was lost he escaped, but the King, surrounded by a few of his Knights, fought with great courge, but at last worn out by fatigue and deserted by all, he surrendered to his Cousin Robert and was by him taken to the Empress Maud, who caused him to be imprisoned at Bristol. Later in the gear he with his brother Robert negotiated peace with Geoffrey of Anjou.

    He served under Gaoffrey, Count of Anjou in the siege of Rouen in 1143/4; he afterwards captured and burnt Emandreville and the Church of S. Sever, where many of both sexes perished in the flames. The Empress Matilda captured his castle at Worcester and granted it to William de Beauchamp. In 1144 King Stephen rewarded him for his many services by creating him Earl of Worcester, he also made him a grant of the town. He went on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and subsequently to the disastrous Second Crusade in 1147 and took part in tha attack on Lisbon, when the Moors were driven out of the City. On his return in 1149 he quarrelled with the King, ana went so far as to offer the crown to Theobald, Stephen's brother, but this was declined. He then joined the party of the Empress Matilda and held Worcester on her behalf. The King captured and burnt the town, but failed in his attempt on the castle. Two years later the King attacked again, Waleran was driven out and escaped to Normandy, where he was taken prisoner by his nephew Robert de Montfort, who confined him in the castle of Obec, he gained his release by a gract of some portion of his estate to his nephew. In 1154 he sctempted to take the castle of Montfort, but without success. The King then captured and burnt the city of Winchester which belonged to Waleran. In 1157 we find him at Henry II's Court and in May 1160 he was one of the witnesses to the Treaty of Peace between Henry II and Louis of France; he also at this time witnessed the charter of the Abbey of Coggeshall.

    He married, firstly, Matilda de Blois, daughter of King Stephen I of England and Matilda of Boulogne, Comtesse de Boulogne, circa March 1136. He married, secondly, Agnes de Montfort, daughter of Amaury III de Montfort, Comte d'Evreux and Agnes de Garlande, in 1141. (Wikipedia.)

Roger Of Baumont, Seigneur Of Beaumont

M, b. 1020, d. November 29, 1094

Parents

Family: Adeliza Countess De Meulan (b. 1014, d. April 8, 1081)

Biography

  • Marriage: He and Adeliza Countess De Meulan were married in 1040.
  • Death: Roger Of Baumont, Seigneur Of Beaumont, died on November 29, 1094, at age ~74, in Preaux, Normandy, France.
  • Note: ROGER DE BELLOMONT, Earl of Mellent, married Adeline, daughter of Waleran and sister and heiress of Hugh, Earl of Mellent, in Normandy, brother of Henry de Newburgh, who was created Earl of Warwick. (Fenwick Allied Ancestry, page 90)

    ROGER DE BEAUMONT, called Barbatus, who succeeded to all the possessions of his father and brother and accompanied William the Conqueror to England in 1066; married Adeline, daughter of Waleran and sister of Hugh, Earl of Mellent. (Fenwick Allied Ancestry, page 143)

    Roger de Beaumont-le-Roger (c. 1015 – 29 November 1094) was son of Humphrey de Vielles (himself a great-nephew of the Duchess Gunnora of Normandy) and his wife Albreda de la Haye Auberie. Roger de Beaumont, Lord of Beaumont-le-Roger and Pont-Audemer, Viscount of Hiesmes, was thus a second cousin once removed of the Conqueror.

    Roger was nicknamed Barbatus or La Barbe because he wore a moustache and beard while the Normans usually were clean shaven. This peculiarity is recognized in the forty-first panel of the Bayeux Tapestry where he is depicted sitting at a feast with Duke William on his left hand, Odo brother of William and Bishop of Bayeux in the centre.

    Planché tells us that "he was the noblest, the wealthiest, and the most valiant seigneur of Normandy, and the greatest and most trusted friend of the Danish family." There is an explanation for this - as an older cousin who had never rebelled against the young Duke, he was part of the kinship group of noblemen that William relied upon in governing Normandy and fighting off frequent rebellion and invasions. The historian Frank McLynn notes that William relied on relatives descended via his mother (namely his half-brothers and brothers-in-law) and on relatives descended from the Duchess Gunnora's sisters, since his own paternal kin had proved unreliable.

    Wace, the 12th century historian, says that "at the time of the invasion of England, Roger was summoned to the great council at Lillebonne, on account of his wisdom; but that he did not join in the expedition as he was too far advanced in years." Although Roger could not fight, he did not hesitate in contributing his share of the cost, for he provided at his own expense sixty vessels for the conveyance of the troops across the channel. Furthermore, his eldest son and heir fought bravely at Hastings as noted in several contemporary records. As a result, Roger's elder sons were awarded rich lands in England, and both eventually were made English earls by the sons of the Conqueror.

    He married circa 1048 or earlier Adeline of Meulan (ca. 1014-1020 - 1081), daughter of Waleran III, Count de Meulan and Oda de Conteville, and sister and heiress of a childless Count of Meulan. Meulan eventually passed to their elder son who became Count of Meulan in 1081.

M, b. circa 928, d. 1010

Biography

  • Birth: Torf (The Rich) Harcourt was born circa 928 in Pont-Audemer, Eure, France.
  • Death: He died in 1010.
  • Note: He was a great Norman feudal baron. Probably he was a grandson of one of the viking chiefs of Scandinavia who accompanied Rollo about 900 A.D. in the Norse invasion of northern France where they permanently settled and gave to the country its name "Normandy". Torf possessed numerous lordships in Normandy, being Seigneur de Torville, Torcy, Torny, Torly, du Ponteautord,etc. It has been suggested that he was a son of Bernard the Dane, the most powerful of the feudal nobles of Normandy during the reign of Duke William I. (927-943) and Regent during the minority of Duke Richard I. (943-955); but this claim has not been proved. Some genealogies show his parents as Bernard of Saxony and Spriota de Bourgogne, but this is most certainly fabricated. - Todd Farmerie.
