http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/NORMAN%20NOBILITY.htm#GaleranIIIMeulandied1069A

GALERAN [III] de Meulan, son of HUGUES [I] Comte de Meulan & his wife --- de Valois (-8 Dec 1069).

The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Waleranni comitis [Mellentini]" as son of "filia Gauterus Albus de Albamarla"[1895]. Yves de Chartres names "Gualterius Albus" as father of "matrem Gualeranni comitis"[1896].

Comte de Meulan.

William of Jumièges recounts that "Hugues du Mans et Galeran de Meulan" were among those who joined the army of Eudes Comte de Blois in attempting to capture the château de Tillières {Verneuil, Eure} from Richard II Duke of Normandy, an event dated to the early 1000s[1897].

"Gualerannus, Mellentis castri comes" donated a family of servants to "Sancti Petri Gisecii…Carnotensis", by undated charter, signed by "Gualeranni comitis, Hugonis primogeniti, coniugis Adelidis, Gualeranni filii, Fulcoisi filii, Teduini vicecomitis…"[1898]. “…Walterius comes Pontisariensis, Willelmus comes Corboilensis, Ivo comes Bellomontensis, Walerannus comes Melledensis” are named among those present at the opening of the reliquary of Saint-Denis, dated 9 Jun 1053[1899].

m firstly (before 1015) ODA, daughter of ---.

“Hugo comes Mellenti” founded the monastery of St Cosmus and St Damian, for the souls of “conjugis…Adelidis…genitoris mei comitis Galeranni atque Odæ genetricis meæ”, by charter dated 1067[1900]. 1030.

m secondly ADELAIS, daughter of --- (-31 May ----).

She had previously been his concubine. "Vualeranni comitis, Hugonis filii eius, Adilais uxoris eius" subscribed a charter dated to before 1031 recording a donation to Jumièges[1901]. 1031/36, 1066. "Gualerannus, Mellentis castri comes" donated a family of servants to "Sancti Petri Gisecii…Carnotensis", by undated charter, signed by "Gualeranni comitis, Hugonis primogeniti, coniugis Adelidis, Gualeranni filii, Fulcoisi filii, Teduini vicecomitis…"[1902].

Galéran [III] & his first wife had two children:

1. HUGUES [III] de Meulan (-15 Oct 1081).

"Vualeranni comitis, Hugonis filii eius, Adilais uxoris eius" subscribed a charter dated to before 1031 recording a donation to Jumièges[1903]. He is named as the brother-in-law of Roger de Beaumont by Orderic Vitalis[1904]. "Gualerannus, Mellentis castri comes" donated a family of servants to "Sancti Petri Gisecii…Carnotensis", by undated charter, signed by "Gualeranni comitis, Hugonis primogeniti, coniugis Adelidis, Gualeranni filii, Fulcoisi filii, Teduini vicecomitis…"[1905].

Comte de Meulan. The charter dated Oct 1056 under which "Mellendis castelli comes Hugo natus patre Waleranno" donated property to the abbey of Jumièges[1906] shows that he succeeded as comte well before his father's death, assuming that this charter is correctly dated and that Waléran's date of death is as shown above. “Hugo comes Mellenti” founded the monastery of St Cosmus and St Damian, for the souls of “conjugis…Adelidis…genitoris mei comitis Galeranni atque Odæ genetricis meæ”, by charter dated 1067[1907]. Guillaume de Jumièges names "Hugues oncle maternel" of Robert son of "Roger de Beaumont" & his wife[1908].

He became a monk at Bec before 1081.

2. ADELINE de Meulan (-8 Apr 1081, bur Abbaye du Bec).

Guillaume de Jumièges names "Adeline fille de Galeran comte de Meulan" as wife of "Roger de Beaumont"[1911].

Orderic Vitalis names Adeline as wife of Roger, and in another place states her father's name[1914]. Robert count of Mellent donated property to St Pierre, Préaux for the souls of his parents Roger de Bellomonte and Adelina his wife, by charter dated to [1099][1915].
