Seigneur Hugues III DE GOURNAY 1

  • Married: After 1051
  • Died: Abt 1093, Holy Lands
  • Buried: Bec Abbey, Normandy, France

  Research Notes:

"Domino meo Hugone Gurnacensi et filio eius Girardo et uxore eius Basilia" consented to the donation by "Radulfus cognomine Havoth" to Jumièges by charter dated to [1040], although presumably the document is misdated. The Chronique de Normandie, based on le Roman de Rou, names "Hue de Gournay sire de Bray" and "le Conte Hue de Gournay" among those who took part in the conquest of England in 1066, the two similar names suggesting that they were father and son. "…Hugonis de Gornaio…" subscribed the charter dated Apr 1067 under which "Willelmus…dux Normannorum…Anglorum rex" confirmed rights to the abbey of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire. "…Hugo de Gurniaco, Ricardus de Curci, Rodulfus filius Herluini, Willelmus filius Hastenchi…" witnessed the charter dated to [1073] under which William I King of England confirmed the donation by "Nielli filii alterius Nielli" to the abbey of Marmoutier. Domesday Book records “Hugh de Gournai” holding Liston, Ardleigh and Fordham in Essex. Henry II King of England confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Bec, including donations by "Hugonis de Gornaco et Girardi filii", by charter dated to [1181/89]. 2
