The Flandria Generosa names "Havisis Namnetensis comitissa" as daughter of "Berta comitissa", when outlining the basis for the consanguinity between Baudouin VII Count of Flanders and his wife Havise de Bretagne which constituted grounds for the couple's separation. The Chronicon Briocensi records the marriage of "Hasevisiam sororem…Conani Ducis" and "Hoellus Dux". Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to before 1072 under which "Constancius" donated property to the abbey of Redon with the consent of "Jedear uxore mea" and affirmed by "Hoel comes et Haduis comitissa, Alanus et Mathias et Eudo filii eorum", read together with another passage in the Flandria Generosa which names "comes Alanus" as son of "Havisis Namnetensis comitissa".
She was heiress of her brother Conan II Duke of Brittany in 1066.
The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "XIV Kal Sep" of "Haduisis filia Berta comitisse". The Chronicon Universum in the cartulary of Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé records the death in 1072 of "Hadeuguis comitissa". 1
Havise married Cte Hoël V DE CORNOUAÏLLE, de Nantes, et de Léon, son of Cte Alain III "Caignart" DE CORNOUAÏLLE and Judith DE NANTES, in 1066. (Hoël V DE CORNOUAÏLLE was born in Cornouaïlle, Ille-et-Vilaine, Bretagne, France and died on 13 Apr 1084.)
