GUILLAUME de Normandie, son of RICHARD I "Sans Peur" Comte de Normandie & his second wife Gunnora --- (978-1057). The sources are contradictory regarding the parentage of Guillaume Comte d'Hiémois. According to Dudo of Saint-Quentin[1272], he was an illegitimate son of Richard I by a mistress other than Gunnora. Guillaume de Jumièges names "Godefroi et Guillaume" as the two sons of Duke Richard by his concubines[1273]. Robert of Torigny names "unus Godefridus alter…Willermus" as sons of "Ricardi primi ducis Normanniæ" by concubines, recording that Guillaume was first "comes…Aucensis" and after the death of his brother became "comes Brionnensis"[1274]. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[1275], he was the younger son of Geoffroy de Brionne, Richard I's illegitimate son, although the source on which this is based is not known. An agreement between the abbots of Jumièges and Bougeuil concerning an exchange of land in Poitou, by charter dated [13 Apr/4 Apr] 1012, is subscribed by "Richardus…filius Ricardi principi magni…Robertus archiepiscopus…ecclesie Rotomagensis et Vuillelmus et Malgerus fratres Richardi comitis…"[1276]. Comte d'Hiémois et Comte d'Eu. Guillaume de Jumièges records the rebellion of "un certain frère du duc, né du meme père…Guillaume" against Duke Richard, after receiving the county of Hiesme, his capture and imprisonment for five years at Rouen, his escape and investment as Comte d'Eu by his brother[1277].

Sancti Petri super Divam virorum et mon. fem. ante urbem Lexoviensem" with "filiis suis Roberto comite Aucensi et Hugone episcopo Lexoviensi"[1281].

2. GUILLAUME "Busac" d'Eu (-[1076]).

a) GUILLAUME "de Alderi" (-hanged 1096). Florence of Worcester records that "Willelmi de Owe…dapiferum illius Willelmum de Alderi filium amitæ illius" was hanged in [1096] for his part in the conspiracy against William II King of England[1289]. "Willelmum de Alderi" has not yet been identified but, if "amita" is translated in its strict sense of paternal aunt, he was presumably the son of a daughter of Guillaume de Normandie Comte d'Eu.
