André DE BAUDÉMENT, Sénéchal de Champagne 1
- Born: Baudémont, Val-de-Oise, Ile-de-France, France
- Died: 19 Jul 1142, Braine, Aisne, Picardy, France
Seigneur de Baudément, de la Fère-en-Tardenois, de Nesles, de Longueville et de Quincy. "Baronum:…Andreas de Baldement" subscribed the charter dated to  under which Baudouin I King of Jerusalem confirmed donations to the church of St Marie, Josaphat. Renaud Archbishop of Reims founded the abbey of Igny en Tardenois and confirmed donations, including the donation of "mansionile de potestate Cheherey" made by "domnus Andreas de Baldimento et uxor ipsius Agnes eorumque filii Guillelmi et Guido", by charter dated 1130. "Andree de Baldimento et Goi…is filii eius" donated property "apud Juliacum" to the Priory of Jully-les-Nonains for receiving "in sanctimoniales filias predicti Andree, Mathildem…et Halwidem" by charter dated 1142, subscribed by "dominus Wido de Barri". "Aelidis uxor Widonis domini de Brana post mortem viri sui…Guidonis" donated "census…Branæ castri et Branellæ villæ" to the Premonstré abbey, with the consent of "patre eorum Andrea de Baldimento et matre eorum Agnetis…", by charter dated 1144. A charter dated 1145 records the donation made by "dominus Andreas de Baldimento et Agnes uxor eius" to Saint-Yved de Braine, with the consent of "Rainaldus Suessonum comes". He must have died soon afterwards as his wife is named alone in the charter dated 1146 which is quoted below.
The necrology of Joyenval records the death "31 Mar" of "Andreæ de Baldimento et sororis Agnetis uxoris eius" and their foundation of "abbatiæ de Bassofonte et Moncellis". The necrology of Saint-Yved de Braine records the death "XIV Kal Aug" of "Andreæ de Baldimento domini huius castri et Agnetis uxoris eius" and their donation. It is not certain that this entry relates to the death of André: the date may be that of the donation in question. 2
André married Dame Agnès DE BRAINE, daughter of Cte Gauthier DE BRAINE and Ade DE SOISSONS. (Agnès DE BRAINE was born in Braine, Aisne, Picardy, France and died on 31 March, after 1144.)
