  Research Notes:

The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names (in order) the brothers "Artauld, Joceran comte de Semur, Freelan abbé et Dalmace" sons of "Freelan de Chameliac de Chasteau Signon". He may be the same person as "miles nobilis Gauzerannus cognomento Bers de Sepmuro" whose donation is recalled by the abbot of Savigny in a [1128] charter, although this specifies that his successor was "Dalmacius".

Seigneur de Semur.

Married as her first husband, Richoara, daughter of ---. The genealogy of the Comtes de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Jaufrois…" as son of "Joceran et Richoare". A charter dated [1000] records a quarrel between "domnus abbas Hugo…Saviniacensis…[et] Gauzerannum fratrem suum" and the donation after the death of the latter by "coniux eius…Richoara…cum filio meo Artaldo". "Fredelandus, frater Gauzeranni, et uxor mea Richoara" donated property belonging to Joceran, in accordance with his testament, to Savigny by charter dated 1 Aug 1000, subscribed by "…Artaldi, Gauzfredi…". The unusual first name suggests that Richoara, widow of Joceran de Semur, was the same person who married [secondly] as his first wife, her first husband's brother Freelan de Semur. If this is correct, the two subscribers named here may be have been two of her sons by her first marriage. A charter dated to [1030] refers to property "in pago Lugdunensi in agro Forensi" previously owned by "mater mea Richoara" donated to Savigny by "Stephanus clericus". 1

  Marriage Information:

Joceran married Richoara. (Richoara died after 1 Aug 1000.)
