   Research Notes:

Orderic Vitalis names "Geroio Ernaldi Grossi de Corte Sedaldi Abonii Britonis filii filio...ex magna nobilitate Francorum et Britonum". He fought with Guillaume de Bellême against Herbert Comte du Maine. Orderic Vitalis records that "Geroius" allied himself with "Willermo Belesmensi" and fought successfully against "Herbertum Cenomannensium comitem".
Seigneur d'Echauffour et de Montreuil: Orderic Vitalis records that "Geroius" was betrothed to "Normannorum...miles...Helgo unicam filiam suam" with "Monasteriolum ac Escalfoium" [Montreuil et Echauffour] agreed as dowry, properties which were transferred to him after her father died, that she herself died before the marriage could take place, but that "Willermus Belesmensis" took Giroie to "Ricardum ducem Normanniæ" who granted "totam terram Helgonis hæreditario jure" to him at Rouen. Guillaume of Jumièges records that "Geroius" went with "Belesmensi Willelmo" to the court of "Richardi Ducis" who granted him "in Normannia duo municipia Monasteriolum et Escalfoum" [Montreuil and Echaufour]. His death is dated by a passage in Orderic Vitalis who records that, after Giroie died, "Gislebertus...comes Brionniæ" attacked "Monsteriolum" but that "Rodbertus dux" [ruled from 1027-1035] reconciled the parties.
