Cte Budic (Benedict) DE CORNOUAÏLLE
Compiler's 29/30 x great-grandfather
He is named Benedict in the source which names his son Periou.
Comte de Cornouaïlle. "Budic comes Cornubiensis" confirmed the possessions of Landevenec by undated charter. "Budic comitis…Alfrett fratris comitis…" signed a donation to Landevenec by "mulier…stemate regalium orta…Iunargant" by undated charter dated to the mid-10th century. "Budic comes" donated property to Landevenec by undated charter dated to the mid-10th century. An undated charter, dated to [945/52], records the death and burial of "Budic…comes", witnessed by "Alan dux Britanniæ…Benedictus episcopus filius istius Budic…Euhuarn vicecomes…".
The name of Budic's wife is not known. It is possible that she was Onven: "Onven filia Rivelen Benedicti præsulis mater" donated "villam…Kaer-Kenuz in plebe Treguent" to Quimper, as well as "alaim villam…Pen-bren…vice Orscandus episcopus", by undated charter. However, if this is correct, "Orscandus episcopus" would have been her grandson, which implies a considerable, if not impossible, lifespan. 1
