Godefroi Giffard Vicomte d'Arques

  • Marriage (1): de Rouen 1

  General Notes:

GODEFROI Giffard. Guillaume de Jumièges records that "Gunnor" had "excepta Sainfria...duas sorores Wewam et Avelinam", adding that "tertia...sororum Gunnoris comitissæ" [Aveline, from the context] married "Osberno de Bolebec", by whom she had "Galterium Giffardum primum et Godefridum patrem Willelmi de Archis". Vicomte d'Arques, which he presumably inherited from his father-in-law "Willelmus...comes filius...Ricardi Normannorum quondam ducis" restored "insulam in fluvio magno Secane...Belcinaca...ecclesias eciam Vatheuille et Brotonii" to Saint-Wandrille by charter dated to [1032/47], subscribed by "Godofredi vicecomitis, comitis, Walterus filius, Lambertus, Willelmus, Osbernus".

m --- de Rouen, daughter of GOZELIN Vicomte de Rouen et d´Arques & his wife Emmeline ---. Her parentage is confirmed by a charter dated 1080 which relates that "Gozelinus vicecomes de Archis…cum coniuge sua et filiis" founded Sainte-Trinité de Rouen and donated property, and that "Willelmus de Archis heres defuncti…avi sui Gozelini" confirmed the donation. "Grandfather" must be "maternal grandfather" as the paternal ancestors of Guillaume d'Arques are confirmed by Guillaume de Jumièges (see above and below).

Godefroi & his wife had [four] children: Guillaume, Giselbert, [Osbern] and Isabelle. 1

Godefroi married de Rouen, daughter of Gozelin de Rouen Vicomte de Rouen, Vicomte d'Arques and Emmeline.1
