About Beatrice d'Eu (le Goz)

Beatrice le Goz might be the daughter of Turstin Goz, vicomte d'Hiesmois.

Her brother would then be Richard Goz ( -1066), vicomte d'Avranches.

There is a possibility she was married to Folques d'Anjou. It is unlikely that she was married to Guillaume d'Hieme d'Eu, as he had another wife at that time, described in historical sources.

A manuscript relating to St Werburgh´s Chester records that “Hugo Lupus filius ducis Britanniæ et nepos Gulielmi magni ex sorore” transformed the foundation into a monastery[592]. This suggests that Hugues´s mother may have been a uterine sister of King William, and therefore daughter of Herluin de Conteville. However, no indication has been in other primary sources which supports the contention that Hugues was the son of a duke of Brittany. It is assumed therefore that both lines of his parentage have been romanticised in this document to improve his status and reputation. Vicomte Richard & his wife had four children:

i) HUGUES d'Avranches "Lupus"[593] ([1047]-St Werburg's Abbey, Chester 27 Jul 1101). He is named as son of Richard "le Goz" by Orderic Vitalis[594]. William I King of England granted him the whole of the county palatine of Chester[595] in 1071, whereby he is held to have become Earl of Chester.
