  Research Notes:

An apparently incomplete fragmentary passage of the mid-12th century continuation of the Historia of Monk Aimon records that, during the reign of Robert II King of France, [name omitted] was granted “Benia” taken from “dominio Sancti Germani”, fortified "Sparnonem et Montifortem", married "de Novigento dominam" by whom he fathered "unum filium...Almaricum", who in turn was father of "duos filios...Simonem et Almaricum", Simon being the father of “Almaricum de Monteforti et Bertrandam comitissam Andegavensem”. “Comes Ivo de Bello monte, Ebo miles, Guarinus miles Parisius, Almaricus miles de Monteforte” witnessed the charter dated 1022 under which Robert II King of France confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Saint-Mesmin de Micy. Robert II King of France confirmed the donation of "Manasses comes" to Chartres Notre-Dame by charter dated 4 Feb 1031, signed by "…Manasses comitis, Hilduini comitis fratris eius, filorum eius Manassis et Hilduini, Burcardo de Montemorenciaco, Evrardi filii Hilduini de Britoglio, Amalrici de Monteforti, Milonis de Caprosa…". He began the building of the castle of Montfort l'Amaury, which was finished by his son. Orderic Vitalis records that Henri I King of France visited Fécamp, dated to [1032], on the advice of "Amalrici senioris de Monte-Forti, filii Guillelmi Hanoensis". "Ivo de Curba villa" dedicated "ecclesiæ Sanctorum Martyrum Gervasii et Protasii Cheonis" by charter dated to [1048/61], witnessed by “...Amalricus de Sparnoto, Simon et Mainerius filii eius...”. "Amalricus miles" founded the priory of Saint-Thomas d’Epernon, with the consent of "conjugis mee…Bertredis…et filiorum meorum…Simonis…atque Mainerii", by charter dated [11 Apr 1052/Jul 1053]. 2
