About Raoul de Beaumont-au-Maine

RAOUL [II] de Beaumont Note: no parents for Raoul II are given in Medlands so Yves Aubert d'Alencon and Gudechilde ? are unconfirmed.

From Medlands http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/MAINE.htm

(-before 1014).  Vicomte du Maine.  "Rodulfus Cenomanensium vicecomes" donated two serfs to the abbey of Saint-Florent, Saumur, in the presence of "conjuge mea Widenore et filiis meis Rodulfo, Gosfrido, Ivelino et Huberto" by undated charter, signed by "Ivelini clerici, primogeniti sui, Gosfridi et Rodulfi et Huberti filiorum eius"[505].  m firstly GODEHILDIS, daughter of ---.  "Rodulfus…Cenomannus vicecomes…mee bone coniugis Godehelt…filio Rodulfo" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Victeur du Mans by charter dated to [994][506].  It is possible that she was Godehildis de Bellême, widow of Albert [I] de la Ferté-en-Beauce, daughter of Yves de Bellême & his wife Godeholt ---. although the primary source which confirms this has not yet been identified.  m secondly GUINOR, daughter of ---.  "Rodulfus Cenomanensium vicecomes" donated two serfs to the abbey of Saint-Florent, Saumur, in the presence of "conjuge mea Widenore et filiis meis Rodulfo, Gosfrido, Ivelino et Huberto" by undated charter, signed by "Ivelini clerici, primogeniti sui, Gosfridi et Rodulfi et Huberti filiorum eius"[507]. 
Raoul [II] & his first wife had three children:  

a) YVES de Beaumont . "Rodulfus Cenomanensium vicecomes" donated two serfs to the abbey of Saint-Florent, Saumur, in the presence of "conjuge mea Widenore et filiis meis Rodulfo, Gosfrido, Ivelino et Huberto" by undated charter, signed by "Ivelini clerici, primogeniti sui, Gosfridi et Rodulfi et Huberti filiorum eius"[508]. Archdeacon at Le Mans.

b) RAOUL [III] [Roscelin] de Beaumont (-before 1040). "Rodulfus…Cenomannus vicecomes…mee bone coniugis Godehelt…filio Rodulfo" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Victeur du Mans by charter dated to [994][509]. "Rodulfus Cenomanensium vicecomes" donated two serfs to the abbey of Saint-Florent, Saumur, in the presence of "conjuge mea Widenore et filiis meis Rodulfo, Gosfrido, Ivelino et Huberto" by undated charter, signed by "Ivelini clerici, primogeniti sui, Gosfridi et Rodulfi et Huberti filiorum eius"[510]. Vicomte du Maine. "Hugo Cenomannensis comes" donated property to the abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel by charter dated 1014, witnessed by "Roscelini vicecomitis, Hameli de Leido Castello, Haymonis de Medano, Herberti fratris comitis, Droci filii Milonis, Odilarii Drudi"[511]. Latouche suggests that "Roscelinus" was a diminutive form of "Rodulfus" and that this person must be the same person as Raoul [III] or Raoul [IV][512]. This appears to be correct as his son Geoffroy is named "filius Roscelini vicecomitis". If it is correct, it is more likely that the charter refers to Raoul [IV]. "…Radulphi vicecomitis, Odonis fratris eius…" witnessed the charter dated to [1010] under which "Gaufridus de Sabolio" founded the priory of Solesmes[513]. m (after 997) EREMBURGIS, daughter of IVES --- (-1 Jan before 1049). The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. She became a nun at Cluny. Raoul [III] & his wife had two children:

i) RAOUL [IV] de Beaumont (-[11 Jun] [after 1070]). His parentage is confirmed by reading together the two documents which firstly confirm that Geoffroy was the son of "Roscelini vicecomitis"[514] and secondly name "…Gaufridi fratris Radulfi vicecomitis…"[515]. Vicomte du Maine.

- see below.

ii) GEOFFROY de Beaumont (-before 1096). "Gaufridus filius Roscelini vicecomitis" sold "ecclesias de Sogona" to Saint-Vincent du Mans by charter dated to [1060][516]. "Hugo de Braietello" donated "ecclesiam…in…Sanctæ Trinitatis in parochial Sancti Celerini", now called "ex nomine patris mei…Capella Guillelmi", to Marmoutier, with the consent of "uxore sua Erma", by charter dated to [1064/76], which also records the donation by "Gaufredus gener suus et Hervisa filia eiusdem Hugonis, uxor Gauffredi"[517]. "…Gaufridi fratris Radulfi vicecomitis…" consented to the purchase of "ecclesiam Sancti Petri que dicitur Curtis Laboris" by Saint-Vincent du Mans by charter dated to [1050/60][518].

- SIRES de BRAITEL.

c) GEOFFROY de Sablé (-after [1015]). "Rodulfus Cenomanensium vicecomes" donated two serfs to the abbey of Saint-Florent, Saumur, in the presence of "conjuge mea Widenore et filiis meis Rodulfo, Gosfrido, Ivelino et Huberto" by undated charter, signed by "Ivelini clerici, primogeniti sui, Gosfridi et Rodulfi et Huberti filiorum eius"[519]. The chronology of the documents associated with this family suggests that Geoffroy must have been born from his father´s first marriage: his father´s first wife is named in a document dated to [994] (see above) and Geoffroy must presumably have been adult when he issued the charter dated to [1010]. "Gaufridus de Sabolio" founded the priory of Solesmes, confirmed by "Adelays uxor mea et filius noster Drogo", by charter dated to [1010], signed by "…Radulphi vicecomitis, Odonis fratris eius…"[520].

e) EUDES de Beaumont . "…Radulphi vicecomitis, Odonis fratris eius…" witnessed the charter dated to [1010] under which "Gaufridus de Sabolio" founded the priory of Solesmes[522].

f) ODELINE [Emmeline] de Beaumont . Dame de Basoges et de Sainte-Christine.
