About Anquetil, Seigneur d'Harcourt

Anquetil, ou Anchetil, seigneur d'Harcourt, chevalier, est le fils de Turquetil d'Harcourt et d'Anceline de Montfort.

Il prend le nom d'Harcourt, seigneurie qui avait été donnée par Rollon à son arrière-grand-père Bernard le Danois, et le transmet à sa postérité.

Il fait une donation à l'abbaye de Fécamp et assiste, avec son père, à celle faite à l'abbaye Notre-Dame de Bernay par Judith de Bretagne, duchesse de Normandie, en 1024. (translation of above) Anquetil, or Anchetil, Lord of Harcourt, knight, was the son of Turquetil d’Harcourt and Anceline de Montfort.

He took the name of Harcourt, seigneurie which had been given by Rollo to his great-grandfather Bernard the Dane, and transmitted it to his posterity.

He made a donation to the abbey of Fecamp and assisted, with his father, the one made to the Abbey of Our Lady of Bernay by Judith of Brittany, Duchess of Normandy in 1024.


De son mariage avec Ève de Boissey, dame de Boissey-le-Châtel, il eut huit enfants, dont quatre prirent part à la conquête de l'Angleterre en 1066 et certains s'y établirent :

   * Errand d'Harcourt, seigneur d'Harcourt, participe à la conquête de l'Angleterre aux côtés de Guillaume le Conquérant
   * Robert Ier d'Harcourt, seigneur d'Harcourt, bâtisseur du château d'Harcourt, participe à la conquête de l'Angleterre

   * Gervais d'Harcourt
   * Yves d'Harcourt, participe à la conquête de l'Angleterre et s'y établit
   * Renaud d'Harcourt
   * Agnès d'Harcourt, dame de Formeville (Fort-Moville)


Fought alongside William the Conquerer in 1066.

Had two children with his wife, Eve De Boessey; Robert, who kept the de Harcourt name, and Roger, who took on de Puttenham.

Having trouble reconciling his birth/death with that of his parents. It's possible that there's a generation missing, or he was born (and died) earlier than the dates put here. There's conflicting information on Anschitil; it's also possible that there were several different Anschitils, but all of them seem to have parents with the same name, which makes no sense. Will correct it if and when the correct information presents itself. -------------------- Anchetil was the first to assume the name of Harcourt from the bourg of Harcourt, near Brionne.

Anquetil (Anchetil), assumed the name of Harcourt, Sire de Harcourt, occurs Charter Bernay, 1014, very young. He married Eve de Boessey-le-Chapel. They had the following children:

1. Errand (Anguerrand) de Harcourt, successor to his father, attended William the Conqueror at Hastings, and he returned to Normandy in 1078. See Crispin and Macary, pg.


2. Robert I. de Harcourt le Fort. See below.

3. Jean de Harcourt.

4. Arnoul de Harcourt.

5. Gervais de Harcourt.
