  General Notes:

IVES de Bellême (-5 Apr 1070, bur Sées). According to Europäische Stammtafeln, he was the son of Guillaume de Bellême, son of "Guillaume de Belesme, fils d'Yves", the table specifying that he was "Sagiensis episcopus Wilhelmi scilicet domini de Bellismo filius" and "avunculus Rodberti filii Guillelmi". From a chronological point of view, this appears unlikely to be correct. Bishop of Sées 1035. Orderic Vitalis records that "Ivo filius Willermi Belesmensis" in "diebus Willermi ducis Normanniæ" held "Sagiensem episcopatum", and succeeded to "hæreditario jure ex paterna...Belesmense oppidum" after the deaths of "fratribus suis Warino et Rodberto atque Willermo". Guillaume of Jumièges records that "Ivo patruus eius Sagiensis episcopus"inherited "Belesmiæ castrum" after the death of [his nephew] Arnoul. Guillaume of Jumièges records that "Ivo...Sagiensis episcopus" besieged "Richardus atque Robertus et Avesgotus filii Willelmi cognomine Sorengi" in the church of Saint-Gervais, which they had occupied after they had devastated "omnem circa Sagium patriam", and forced them to flight, the following chapter describing how each of the three brothers died. Orderic Vitalis records that, after the death of "Ivone...Sagiensium præsule","Rodbertus Huberti de Ria filius" was appointed and was bishop for twelve years, dated to 1070. 1
