He owned land as vassal of the abbey of St Bénigne, and land at Lecey as vassal of the bishop of Langres.
The pagus Attoariorum, also known as Hattuarii and Atoariensis, lay west of the river Saône and comprised the eastern part of the archdeaconate of Dijon, within the diocesis of Langres, and the archdeaconate of Oscheret, in the diocesis of Chalon. It was named after the Hattuarii, a Germanic people who also founded the pagus Hattuariensis north of Köln. Its territory was reduced to the area which was later covered by the doyennés of Fouvent and Bèze after the separation of the pagus Oscarensis, dated to [836/52]. [Records] relating the comtes d’Atuyer have been found in primary sources from the late 9th century to the mid-11th. After that date, it is assumed that the county was subsumed into the neighbouring county of Dijon or formed part of the territory governed directly by the dukes of Burgundy, although corroboration for this assumption has not yet been found in any of the primary sources so far consulted during the preparation of the present document. The Chronicle of St Pierre de Bèze records the foundation of the monastery of Saint-Pierre de Bèze "inter fluvium…Araris et Sagunna, et fluvium…Tyla…qui Besuus dicitur", which describes a location within the county of Atuyer. 1
