The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Guilelmum Matisconensem sive Viennensem et Galterum de Salins" as children of "[comes] Gerardum Viennensem" & his wife.
He succeeded as Sire de Salins. The Pars Altera Chronici Lemovicensis of Geoffroy de Vigeois records that "nobilis Ebo de Charento" with "Gaucherio de Salis qui fuit filius Geraldi de Mania" with "nuru sua, quæ fuit uxor Archambaldi de Borbon et soror ducis Burgundiæ" invaded Limoges, dated to 1182. "Wacherus dominus de Salinis" donated property to Besançon Saint-Etienne, for the soul of "patris mei Girardi comitis Viennensium", by charter dated 1184. "Dominum Gaucherium de Borbonio, dominamque Matildim uxorem meam" granted toll exemptions to Cluny, with the consent of "domini Guillelmi comitis fratris mei", by charter dated 1189. "Walcherius dominus Salinis filius comitis Girardi" confirmed a donation made by "Girardus Nigridoldus" to the abbey of Aulps by charter dated 1190. "Galcherus Salinensis dominus" founded the abbey of Golliane, with the consent of "Mora matre mea comitissa", by charter dated 1218.
His date of death is fixed by the charter dated 1220 under which "Margarita filia Walcheri, quondam domini de Salinis" swore homage to "consanguinei mei Stephani comitis Burgundie". The necrology of Gouaille abbey records the death "IV Non Aug" of "Galcherius dominus de Salinis fundator noster". His place of burial is confirmed by the charter dated 1219 in which [his sister] "Ida duchissa Lotharingiæ domina de Coloniaco soror comitis Vuillelmi et Galcheri domini Salinensis" chose to be buried at Gouailles abbey "cum fratre fundatore".

Gaucher also married Mathilde DE BOURBON, daughter of Archembaud VIII "le Jeune" DE DAMPIERRE Sire of Bourbon and Alix DE BOURGOGNE, in 1180. The marriage ended in divorce in 1195.
