The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem" as son of "Godefridus de Guisia" & his wife.
Seigneur de Guise. "Widonis de Lecherii [Lesquielles]" subscribed the charter dated 1104 under which Godefroi de Ribemont donated property to the monastery of Saint-Prix, the castle of Lesquielles being another property of the Seigneurs de Guise.... Barthélemy Bishop of Laon confirmed that “Elbertus et noster vice dominus” donated “partem...silve Aurigniaci” to Foigny, with the consent of “filii sui Willelmi et filiarum suarum Gisle et Dode...et Guidonis de Guisia”, by undated charter, dated to after 1115. Barthélemy Bishop of Cambrai confirmed the donation of “alodium de S. Germano, villas de Paciis, de Estrea” made to Famy abbey by “Guidone de Guisia consanguineo nostro” with the consent of “uxoris suæ Aeluidis quæ vulgo Machania dicitur”, by charter dated Dec 1120, in the presence of “Gerardi de S. Auberto...Guasconis de Thorota, Petri de Malovicino...”. The family relationship between the bishop and the Guise family has not yet been traced. "Wido Lescheriensis…et Guisiensis" granted rights to the abbey of Saint-André du Câteau, for the souls of "meæ et coniugis meæ Adeluyæ", by undated charter, signed by "filiorum meorum Adam et Burgardi…" and later confirmed by the bishop of Laon by charter dated 1121 at the request of "Guido de Gusia rogatu uxoris suæ Adeluyæ et matris suæ Adæ" and with the consent of "filiis suis Adam et Burchardo". Guy de Guise donated property to the abbey of Saint-Prix de Saint-Quentin by charter dated 1123. 2
Guy probably married Adeline (Helvide/Méchaine) DE MONTMORENCY, daughter of Bouchard DE MONTMORENCY and Agnès DE BEAUMONT, Dame de Conflans. (Adeline DE MONTMORENCY was born in Montmorency, Val d'Oise, Ile-de-France, France.)
