   General Notes:

Orderic Vitalis records that “Goscelinus de Archis” founded “extra muros Rotomagi in monte sanctæ Trinitatis cœnobium, quod vulgo sanctæ Catharinæ dicitur”. "…Gozelinus vicecomes…" witnessed the charter dated Aug 1027 under which Richard II Duke of Normandy donated property to the abbey of Bernay. "Gozelini…vicecomitis et Emmelinæ uxoris eius" confirmed the foundation in 1030 by Robert II Duke of Normandy of the abbey of Sainte-Trinité at Rouen. An undated charter, dated to [1030/35], records a donation to Sainte-Trinité de Rouen by "vicecomes Rotomagi Gozelinus…fundator" and "Heltone, generosi Gulberti filio", witnessed by "Rotberti comitis, Rotberti archiepiscopi, Gozelini vicecomitis, Emmelinæ uxoris eius, Heltonis, Walberti fratris Heltonis, Willelmi heredis Heltonis". "Gozelinus…vicecomes" donated "ecclesiam Montvillæ" to Sainte-Trinité de Rouen, with the consent of "domino meo comite…Rotberto", by undated charter (dated to [1030/35]), signed by "Rotberti comitis, Gozelini vicecomitis, Emmelinæ vicecomitissæ…Hertoldi de Limeisi…". "…Gotscellinus Rufus de Formovilla…" are named as present in the charter dated 1035 under which "Willelmus adhuc puerulus…Roberti comitis filius" donated "Turstini villa" to the abbey of Préaux. Robert of Torigny's De Immutatione Ordinis Monachorum records that "Goscelinus vicecomes Arcacensis, patruus Godefridi patris Mathildis uxoris Willelmi camerarii" founded "monasterium Sanctæ Trinitatis in monte Rothomagi", although the detailed family relationships are inconsistent with those confirmed by other sources.
