"Berta comitissa et Manfredus, Bonifacius et Anselmus marchioness et Henricus et Oto germani, mater et filii" donated property to the church of Santa Maria "de episcopatu Astensi" by charter dated 22 Apr 1065[419].

Marchese del Vasto.

"Bonifacius marchio filius quondam Teutonis…marchio et Henrico nepos suus" donated property to the canons of the church "in valle Burmia in loco…Ferranica" by charter dated 1097[421]. "Bonifacius marchio filius Teutonis…marchio…cum Alice cometissa filia qd. d. Petri marchio atque Theotone, Petro, Magnifredo, Hugone et Willielmo filiis eorum" donated property to "monasterio sancti Petri…in…villa Saviliani" by charter dated 21 Dec 1099[422]. "Bonifacius marchio cum filiis suis Manfredo atque Ugone" donated property to "ecclesie S. Donati de Monte" by charter dated 1121[423]. "Bonifacius marchio" appointed "filiis suos Maginfredum et Wilielmum adque Ugonem necnon Anselmum…et Anricum et Bonefacium minorem atque Odonem" as his heirs and provided dowries for "filiabus…Sibilie et Adalaxia et alie filie si ex hac uxore nata fuit", but disinherited "Bonifacium…incixie nominatum", by charter dated 1125[424].

Petri marchio atque Theotone, Petro, Magnifredo, Hugone et Willielmo filiis eorum" donated property to "monasterio sancti Petri…in…villa Saviliani" by charter dated 21 Dec 1099[426]. Szabolcs de Vajay dismisses this individual as an imaginary person designed to explain the claims of Marchese Bonifazio to Turin, which he in fact inherited through his mother who was the younger sister of Adelaida di Susa, mother of Comte Pierre[427]. It is unsure whether he was aware of the charter quoted above when he made this suggestion. Even if the charter in question was a forgery, it is uncertain what purpose would have been served by fabricating the ancestry of Marchese Bonifazio´s wife. It should be noted that Bonifazio´s [second] wife Agnes de Vermandois was considerably younger than her husband. An earlier marriage would be likely.]

GUGLIELMO (-after 1160). "Bonifacius marchio filius Teutonis…marchio…cum Alice cometissa filia qd. d. Petri marchio atque Theotone, Petro, Magnifredo, Hugone et Willielmo filiis eorum" donated property to "monasterio sancti Petri…in…villa Saviliani" by charter dated 21 Dec 1099[442].

That he may have been born from the first marriage of his father is suggested by the charter dated 1196 under which his son "Bonifacius marchio de Cravexana" confirmed a donation to the monastery of San Stefano by "comitissa Adalasia avia mea"[446]. However, this charter could also refer to Bonifazio´s maternal grandmother, mother of Anselmo´s wife who is not otherwise known.

This document shows that Marchese Bonifazio had two sons named Bonifazio. Documents pertaining to the divorce of Bernard [IV] Comte de Comminges and Marie de Montpellier include testimony on the couple´s consanguinity, in particular "dominam Clemenciam amitam regine" (Clémence de Montpellier, sister of Guillaume [VIII]) declared that "Bonifatius marchio habuit tres infantes…Bonefacium et Guillelmum marchionem et Sibiliam.

A manuscript entitled Genealogia regum Francorum tertiæ stirpis names "Bonefacium archidiaconum Noviomensem" as one of the sons of "Bonefacius Marchio" and his wife "Hugo…frater Philippi Regis Francorum…filias…una"[457]. Bishop of Alba. Marchese di Curtemilia. "Dominus Bonifacius Marchio de Curtemilia" confirmed the donation of "medietas castri, villæ…et comitatus Laureti", made by "Otto Marchio qui fuit frater eius", to the consuls of Asti by charter dated 1188[458]. "Dominus Guilielmus Marchio de Ceva" donated "hæreditate Domini Bonifacii Marchionis de Curtemilia" to the consuls of Asti by charter dated 26 May 1190[459].

"Bonifacius marchio" appointed "filiis suos Maginfredum et Wilielmum adque Ugonem necnon Anselmum…et Anricum et Bonefacium minorem atque Odonem" as his heirs but disinherited "Bonifacium…incixie nominatum" by charter dated 1125[460].

SIBILLA (-before 11 Dec 1146). "Bonifacius marchio" provided dowries for "filiabus…Sibilie et Adalaxia et alie filie si ex hac uxore nata fuit" by charter dated 1125[469]. The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis refers to (but does not name) the first of the daughters of "Hugonem Magnum [et] Adelaide comitissa Veromandensium" as wife of "Bonefacius marchio", parents of "Bonefacium archidiaconum Noviomensem et filios et filias, quarum una nupsit Guilelmo de Monte-pessulano"[470]. The contract of marriage between "Guillelmus de Montispessulano" and "sponsam meam…Sibiliam" is dated Aug 1129 and lists her dowry as "castrum…Monsferrarius et Castrum Novum et villam de Sustancione et villam de Salzeto et villam Sancti Martini de Crecio" (Montferrier, Castelnau-le-Lez, Substantion, Salzetum, Le Crès {Hérault})[471]. According to documentation, identified by Johannes Vincke[472], relating to the divorce on grounds of consanguinity of Marie de Montpellier and her husband, she was the daughter of Bonifazio Marchese del Vasto (and, presumably, his wife Agnès de Vermandois, although this is not specified in the text). In this text, several of Marie's relatives bore witness to the couple's shared ancestry, in particular "dominam Clemenciam amitam regine" (Clémence de Montpellier, sister of Guillaume [VIII] Seigneur de Montpellier) declared that "Bonifatius marchio habuit tres infantes…Bonefacium et Guillelmum marchionem et Sibiliam. De Bonifatio exivit domina Maria uxor domini Bernardo de Andusia, de Guillelmo marchione exivit comitissa de Bigorra, et de comitissa de Bigorra exivit uxor Bernardoni comitis Convenarum. De Sibilia exivit Guillelmus de Montepessulano, et de Guillelmo Montispessulani exivit Guillelmus pater Marie regine Aragonum. Hec ita vera esse audivit ab antecessoribus suis et a domino B. de Andusia et a domino episcopo Cyffricensi fratre eius, et a domina Marchisa eius uxore, et a domino R. episcopo Litteuensi et a multis aliis". However, it should not be assumed that this documentation is completely accurate. The ancestry attributed to Bernard Comte de Comminges in the extract quoted above appears to be incorrect. In addition, in another part of the text several witnesses incorrectly state that the mother of Mathilde de Bourgogne was a daughter of Renaud Comte de Bourgogne. m (contract Aug 1129) GUILLAUME [VI] Seigneur de Montpellier, son of GUILLAUME [V] Seigneur de Montpellier & his wife Ermesende de Melgueil (-[1162]).] 12. ADELAIDA (-after 1125). "Bonifacius marchio" provided dowries for "filiabus…Sibilie et Adalaxia et alie filie si ex hac uxore nata fuit" by charter dated 1125[473].
