Settipani suggests that Géraud was the fifth signatory in the following document dated 920. “Dedane... Helie, Eldegarii, Fulcherii, Gerao, Ingelberti, Gozberti, Guillebaldi” signed the charter dated 920 under which “Deda femina” donated property “in pago Limovicensi in vicaria Novicense in villa...Adiola” to Limoges Saint-Etienne, for the soul of “Hildeberti conjugis mei” and for the damage caused to the church by “filius noster Hildebertus abba”, with the consent of “filio meo Helia”. However, the chronology of Géraud’s life, particularly the estimated date of his marriage, is inconsistent with his having been old enough to have witnessed a charter in 920. [It] is more likely that “Gerao”, assuming that he was a member of the vicecomital family, was a younger brother of Vicomte Hildegaire.
“Ramnulfus” sold property “in urbe Biturcico in vicaria Dunense in villa...Duno” to “Eldejere vescommite et ucxore sua...Tecbergane et Giraldo filium nostrum” by charter dated 15 Mar 941. “Eldegarius vicecomes et uxor mea Teotberga et filii nostri Giraldus et Eldebertus” donated “mansos novem in pago Limovicino vicaria Mansiacense in villa...Benaias” to Limoges Saint-Marcial by charter dated to after 943.
Vicomte de Limoges. The Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis names "Geraldus" as successor of "Fulcherius" in the viscounty of Limoges. "Ademarus vicecomes et Geraldus vicecomes consanguineus meus" donated “unum mansum...a Meseirac in vicaria Usercensi” to Uzerche by charter dated to the 11th century. Baluze identifies the donors as Adémar Vicomte de Ségur and Géraud Vicomte de Limoges, suggesting that they were first cousins, sons of two brothers. The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes names "Geraldo vicecomite et filius eius Widone" when recording that they fought "Helias Petragoricensi comite", although this passage is presumably inaccurate as Hélie [I] Comte de Périgord only succeeded to his county after the death of his father in [1003/12], many years after the death of Vicomte Gérard. 1
