\n

From Medlands:

\n
(-Ardres 1137).  The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names (in order) "Robertus…dictus est Manasses…Fulconem …Guidonem…Hugonem…Adelidem quoque Samurensem et Ghislam Gandavensem" as children of "Balduinus [comes Ghisnensi]" & his wife[601].  The cartulary of the abbey of Charroux records the founding of the abbey of Ardres by "Balduinius comes Gisnensis" in 1097, confirmed following his death by "filius eius Manasses", the charter being subscribed by "Hugo archidiaconus frater Manassis comitis…Fulco frater comitis"[602].  No explanation has so far been found for Robert's use of the alternative name Manassès.  He succeeded his father as Comte de Guines.  A charter dated 1097 records that "Balduinus comes Gisnensis" founded the monastery of Andres, confirmed after his death by "filius eius Manasses", witnessed by "Hugo archidiaconus frater Manassæ comitis…Fulco frater comitis…"[603].  “Manasses Gisnensis comes et Emma uxor eius…filia Willielmi de Arras” founded Redlingfield priory by charter dated 1120, witnessed by “Widonis fratris mei, Rosæ filiæ meæ”[604].  Jean Bishop of Tournai confirmed the foundation of the monastery of Andres by "Balduinum piæ memoriæ comitem Gisnensem uxoremque eius Athelam" by charter dated 1122 which names "filiisque eius Manasse, Fulcone, Hugone, Widone"[605].  “Manasses…Gisnensium comes…cum uxore mea Emma et filia Rosa” confirmed possessions of Andres by undated charter[606].  "Manasses Gisnensium comes et Emma comitissa" granted the administration of the church of Saint-Léonard to Saint-Bertin by charter dated 1129[607].  “Manasses Gisnensium comes, Emma comitissa, Henricus castellanus de Brochborc, Livildis mater sua, Mathildis, Adaliza, sorores suæ…” witnessed the charter dated 1130 under which "Henricus de Campanies" donated property to Andres[608].  The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium records the death of Manassès and his burial "in Andrie monasterio"[609].  m (before 1106) as her second husband, EMMA d'Arques, widow of NELE de Muneville, daughter of GUILLAUME Vicomte d'Arques Lord of Folkestone & his wife Beatrix Malet (-after 1140).  “Manasses Gisnensis comes et Emma uxor eius…filia Willielmi de Arras” founded Redlingfield priory by charter dated 1120, witnessed by “Widonis fratris mei, Rosæ filiæ meæ”[610].  The primary source which confirms her first marriage has not yet been identified.  The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names "Emmam filiam Roberti camerarii de Tancarvilla in Normannia, viduam Odonis de Folkestane in Anglia" as wife of "Manasses"[611], which appears to be incorrect.  "Manasses Gisnensium comes et Emma comitissa" granted the administration of the church of Saint-Léonard to Saint-Bertin by charter dated 1129[612].  “Manasses…Gisnensium comes…cum uxore mea Emma et filia Rosa” confirmed possessions of Andres by undated charter[613].  “Manasses Gisnensium comes, Emma comitissa, Henricus castellanus de Brochborc, Livildis mater sua, Mathildis, Adaliza, sorores suæ…” witnessed the charter dated 1130 under which "Henricus de Campanies" donated property to Andres[614].  According to Domesday Descendants she became a nun at Saint-Leonard de Guines after the death of her second husband[615].  Comte Robert & his wife had one child:
\n

SIBYLLE [Rose] de Guines (-after 1120). The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names "Sibillam…Rosam nominatam" as the only daughter of "Manasses [comes Ghisnensi]" & his wife, naming her husband "castellano Broburgensi Henrico" and specifying that she was buried "in monasterio beate Marie de Capella"[616]. “Manasses Gisnensis comes et Emma uxor eius…filia Willielmi de Arras” founded Redlingfield priory by charter dated 1120, witnessed by “Widonis fratris mei, Rosæ filiæ meæ”[617]. “Manasses…Gisnensium comes…cum uxore mea Emma et filia Rosa” confirmed possessions of Andres by undated charter[618]. m as his first wife, HENRI Châtelain de Bourbourg, son of THEMARD Châtelain de Bourbourg & his wife --- (-after 1162, bur Saint-Bertin).

\n

Comte Robert had one illegitimate child by an unknown mistress:

\n

b) ADELAIDE . The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names "Adelidem" as daughter of "Manasses [comes Ghisnensi]" and "puella apud Ghisnas oriunda", naming her husband "Eustacio filio Heremari de Balinghehen" and their six children[619]. m EUSTACHE de Bavelinghem, son of HEREMAR de Bavalinghem & his wife ---.
