The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum names "Ingelgerius…filius eius Fulco cognominatus Rufus". [“Ademari comitis, Attonis vicecomitis...Guarnegaudi...Ragenaldi...Fulconis, Gauzfredi” subscribed the charter dated Apr 886 under which “Odo...comes et...abbas...Sancti Martini” returned property in Italy “Solarium...et Vallem Caumoniam” to the abbey. "Rotberti rerum Sancti Martini abbatis, Guarnegaudi vicecomitis, Burchardi comitis, Fulconis, Ardradi vicecomitis..." subscribed the charter dated 22 Mar [891/92] which records the judgment at Tours in favour of Saint-Martin against Ricbert who had mistreated serfs. It is uncertain whether the subscriber of these two charters is the same person as the future Foulques I Comte d´Anjou. The date of the earlier charter especially appears to be early for him to have been the same.]
Vicomte d´Anjou: "Ardradus" donated "villam...Bainam...in pago Aurelianense" to Saint-Martin de Tours, for the soul of “genitoris mei domni Attonis”, with the consent of “frater meus Atto”, by charter dated 29 Sep 898, subscribed by “Attonis fratris sui vicecomitis, Gunberti avunculi ipsorum, Fulconis vicecomitis...”. “...Attonis vicecomitis, Guarnegaudi vicecomitis, Fulconis vicecomitis” subscribed the charter dated 22 May 899 under which “Rotbertus...Sancti Martini abbas et comes” restored “cellam beati Clementis martyris” to Saint-Martin. “...Attonis vicecomitis, Guarnegaudi vicecomitis, Fulconis vicecomitis, Rainaldi vicecomitis...” subscribed the charter dated 13 Sep 900 under which “Rotbertus...beati Martini abba...et comes” restored “cellulæ...Sancti Clementis”, previously donated by “predecessor noster domnus Odo germanus noster...tunc abbas deinde Francorum rex”, to Saint-Martin. Vicomte de Tours: "Archambaldus et uxor mea Ingilrada" donated property "in pago Turonico in vicaria Evenense...in villa...Fontanas...in villa...Linarias" to Saint-Martin de Tours by charter dated 5 Jul 905, subscribed by “Fulconis Turonorum et Andecavorum vicecomitis, Gauzleni comitis et yppocomitis palatii...Guarnegaudi vicecomitis vel graphionis, Burchardi comitis vel graphionis...”.
FOULQUES I "le Roux" Comte d'Anjou: "Domni Fulconis Andecavorum comitis, Tedbaldi Turonorum vicecomitis" subscribed the charter dated 30 Oct 909 under which the testamentary executors of "domni Gauzuini" donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours. “Domni Gauslini comitis, domni Ervei comitis, domni Gausberti comitis, domni Fulconis” subscribed the charter dated 13 Nov 912 under which “domnus Rotbertus Sancti Martini...atque...beati Martini Majoris...monastgerii...abba...et comes” confirmed the independence of Marmoutier abbey. "Fulconis abbatis atque vicecomitis" subscribed the charter dated Aug 924 under which "Fulculfus et conjux mea Eufrasia" donated property to Saint-Aubin d´Angers. His lay abbacies are noted in the charter dated to [929/30] under which "Fulco Andecavorum comes abbas quoque Sancti Albini Sanctique Lizinii necnon et uxor mea Roscilla et filii mei Widdo ac Fulco" donated property to Saint-Aubin d'Angers for the souls of "Ingelgerio genitore meo atque Ingelgerio filio meo necnon…Warnerio socro meo et uxore sua Tescenda".
The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records the burial of "Fulco Rufus" at "ecclesia beati Martini iuxta patrem suum". "Domni Fulconis et filii ipsius…quoque Fulconis" are named as present in a charter dated Aug 941 which records a lawsuit concerning land claimed by "sacerdos Sancti Martini…Tesmunnus". 2
