  General Notes:

RAOUL [IV] de Beaumont, son of RAOUL [III] de Beaumont Vicomte du Maine & his wife Eremburgis --- (-[11 Jun] [after 1070]). His parentage is confirmed by reading together the two documents which firstly confirm that Geoffroy was the son of "Roscelini vicecomitis" and secondly name "…Gaufridi fratris Radulfi vicecomitis…". Vicomte de Beaumont-sur-Sarthe, de Grand-Montevrault et du Lude. Vicomte du Maine. Seigneur de Preuilly. "Radulfo vicecomite, Guillelmo vicecomite, Erfredo vicecomite, Herveo vicecomite de Bleso…" witnessed a charter dated 1039 which records that "miles…Walterius…filius Hamelini de Lingaiis" was sentenced to relinquish property held from Geoffroy II "Martel" Comte d´Anjou for having killed "cognatum predicti comitis…Mauricium", Comte Geoffroy donating the property to La Trinité de Vendôme. "Radulfus vicecomes" donated "la foire de Notre-Dame" to La Trinité de Vendôme by charter dated to after 1070, witnessed by "Goffridus de Chamiliaco frater Berengarii…Tetbertus telonearius, Fulbertus teleonarius, Hubertus filius eius…". Although Hubert is named eighth in the list of witnesses, it is likely that "filius eius" applies to the donor not to the person whose name precedes Hubert´s in the list. If this is correct, the donor was Vicomte Raoul [IV]. The necrology of Le Mans Cathedral records the death "III Id Jun" of "Radulphus vicecomes", although it is not known to which Vicomte Raoul this refers.

m firstly (before 3 Mar 1048) EMME de Montevrault Dame du Lude, daughter of ETIENNE de Montevrault Grand-Montrevault, Cholet, Maine-et-Loire & his wife Adelberge de Vendôme (-12 Sep 1058, bur Saint-Serge d'Angers). "Huberti Andegavensium episcopi…et neptis illius Emme atque Radulfi vicecomitis Cenomannensium mariti eius filiorumque eorum" consented to the donation to the monastery of La Charité Sainte-Marie d´Anjou made by "Aremburgis relicta vidua Thetuini Strabonis…et filiam suam Hildegardem" by undated charter. "Radulfus vicecomes cum uxore sua Amelina" sold the church of Luché to Saint-Aubin d'Angers by charter dated to [1057]. The necrology of Angers Cathedral records the death "II Id Sep" of "Emma vicecomitissa Cenomanensis neptis Huberti episcopi".

m secondly CANA, daughter of GELDUIN Seigneur de Pontlevoie & his wife ---. [1060]. She is named as the mother of Savari by Orderic Vitalis, without giving her origin or the name of her husband. It is possible that this is the same person as Cana , daughter of Gelduin Seigneur de Saumur & his [first] wife Gerberge du Perche, who is recorded in the Gesta Ambaziensium which names "Gosfridum…Puella vocatus…sororem Chanam" as children of "Gelduinus vir nobilis ex genere Danorum", specifying that Cana married "Frangalo Filgeriarum dominus" and had many sons and daughters. If this is correct, her marriage to Vicomte Raoul would probably have been her second marriage. "Radulfus vicecomes et Cana eius uxor" witnessed the charter dated to [1060] by which "Robertus filius Frogerii" donated "terram de Mosteriolo" to Saint-Vincent du Mans, for "fratre suo Geroico", with the consent of "Gaufridus frater vicecomitis".

Raoul [IV] & his first wife had three children: Hubert, Raoul and a daughter.

Raoul [IV] & his second wife had one child: Savary. 1
