  Research Notes:

The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent names "Hugonis Bruni" as "castrum Liziniacum…domini" and son of "Hugonis Albi".

Seigneur de Lusignan. "Ugo Liziniacensis domnus" donated property to St Cyprien, Poitiers by charter dated [1012/18], subscribed by "Arsendis matris eius". "Wilelmus Pictavorum comes et dux Aquitanorum…filius Guillelmi comitis" [Guillaume V Duke of Aquitaine] granted revenue to "militi meo…Ugoni", to compensate him for the loss of revenue from a tax imposed on the town of Saint-Maixent, by charter dated to [1023/26]. An undated charter, dated to [1030], records a final agreement between Guillaume V Duke of Aquitaine and “Hugone Chiliarcum” [Hugues [IV] Seigneur de Lusignan] settling long-standing disputes.... The document records the territorial ambitions of "Hugone Chiliarchum" in "castro…Vicredoni…castrum Coacus…Kaziaco…castrum Malavallis…Malè…Aspremundo castro…castrum Gentiaco…" {[Vicredonus], Couhé, Chizé, Malvau, Melle, [Aspremont], Gençay}. It also records that Hugues [IV] died a year after his final agreement with Duke Guillaume. Painter suggests that his death should be dated to some time between 1025 and 1032. 2
