Hugues Avoué de Saint-Riquier
HUGUES, son of --- (-4 Jul ). Kerrebrouck says there is no proof that Hugues was the son of Hilduin Comte de Montreuil, and that he could have been a member of the family of Enguerrand, one of whom was abbé de Saint-Riquier at the beginning of the 11th century. The Chronique de Saint Riquier records that Hugues "Capet" King of France granted the château d'Abbeville "à un chevalier nommé Hugues" and also confiscated "Forest-Moutier" from the abbey of Saint-Riquier and granted it to him, recording in a later passage that Hugues bore the title "avoué" not comte. These territories became the foundation of the county of Ponthieu.
Hugues married Gisèle de France before 987.1
