- Died: After Aug 1027
Compiler's 27/29 x great-grandfather
Guillaume of Jumièges names him "Osmundo de Centum-villis vicecomiti Vernonii" when recording his marriage (see below). However, it is far from that in the early 11th century vicomtes in Normandy were referred to by a territorial appellation. "Richardus vicecomes, Nigellus vicecomes, Alvredus vicecomes, Tustingus vicecomes, Vualterius vicecomes, Odo vicecomes, Sciricus vicecomes, Vuimondus vicecomes, Gofridus vicecomes, Goscelinus vicecomes, Osmundus vicecomes, Goscelinus vicecomes..." witnessed the charter dated Aug 1027 under which "Richardus Normannorum dux" donated property to Bernay abbey. 1
Osmond married a niece of Gunnora mistress of Richard I Comte [de Normandie], daughter of ---. Guillaume of Jumièges records that “nepotes...plures...Gunnor...earum...quarta” married “Osmundo de Centum-villis vicecomiti Vernonii” by whom she had “primus Fulco de Aneio, plures filiæ, quarum una mater fuit primi Balduini de Reuers.” 2
