The Chronicon Savigniacensis Monasterii records the death in 1220 of "Juhellus de Meduana…domina Isabel mater eius"[762].

Geoffroy and his [first][763] wife had one child: {this should probably read two children}

Her parentage and second marriage are confirmed by the charter dated to [1204] under which her son "Theobaldus de Mathefelon" ratified donations to Fontaine-Daniel by "dominus Juhellus de Meduana…avunculus meus"[764].
