His parentage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis. He succeeded [before 1129] as Comte de Ponthieu. Guillaume of Jumièges records that ”Willelmum Talavatium” married “Ala...quæ fuerat antea uxor ducis Burgundiæ” [incorrect], and had “duos filios et totidem filias” of whom “filiorum primogenitus Wido” was made “patre vivente...comes Pontivi”. "Guido comes Pontivi" donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "pater eius Willelmus comes…et mater eius Hela" by charter dated 18 Dec 1139, signed by "Guido comes et uxor sua Ida".
He left on crusade in 1146.
Guy married Ida, daughter of ---. "Wido comes Pontivii" confirmed freedoms over his lands, with the consent of "patris mei Willermi et domine Ele matris mee, fratris mei Johannis et uxoris mee Ide et filii mei Johannis" by undated charter. "Guido comes Pontivi" donated property to Cîteaux by charter dated 18 Dec 1139, signed by "Guido comes et uxor sua Ida". "Jean comte de Ponthieu" founded l'Hôtel-Dieu d'Abbeville by charter dated 1158, witnessed by "Ide comtesse…". "Johannes comes Pontivi" confirmed rights of the monks of Val, with the consent of "Guidonis fratris mei et Beatricis comitisse uxoris mee", by charter dated 1177, which also names "mater mea Ida comitissa". 2
Guy married Ida before 18 Dec 1139. (Ida died after 1177).
