ENGUERRAND (-1045, bur Saint-Riquier). The Chronique de Saint Riquier names "Angelran" as son of Hugues, commenting that he contented himself with the title avoué until his marriage when he adopted the title comte. Avoué de Saint-Riquier. He defeated Gilbert Comte de Brionne who had invaded Le Vimeu. The Chronique de Saint Riquier records the death in 1045 of "seigneur Angelran" and his burial at Saint-Riquier.
[m firstly ---. If the date attributed to Enguerrand's marriage to Aleida is correct as shown below, it is chronologically implausible for her to have been the mother of Enguerrand's sons. This is because Enguerrand's grandson, Enguerrand, must have married in [1045/50] (see below). This earlier marriage is therefore almost inevitably correct, although no direct reference which confirms this has yet been found in primary sources.]
m [secondly] ([after 1033]) as her second husband, ALEIDA [van Westfriesland], widow of BAUDOUIN Comte de Boulogne, daughter of [ARNULF Graaf van Westfriesland [Holland] & his wife Liutgard de Luxembourg]. The Chronique de Saint Riquier records that "Angelran" killed "le comte de Boulogne" in battle and married his widow "Adelvie…qui était de l'origine la plus illustre", after which he adopted the title comte. She is named as the possible daughter of Arnulf, and her two marriages shown, in Europäische Stammtafeln but the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified.
Enguerrand & his [first] wife had three children: Hugues, Guy and Foulques. 1
