Fm fmgMedlands

GILLES [II] de Saint-Aubert (-after 1173, maybe after Jun 1184). The Chronicon Hanoniense records "Egidius de Sancto Oberto" as "ex sua hereditate summus Hanoniensis curie dapifer" and “ex parte Mathildis uxoris sue summus camerarius”, adding that he acquired “Businias villam” [Busignies], where he built a castle which he held as a fief from “comite Hanoniensi Balduino, Balduini comitis et Alidis comitisse filio”, and “Bohain...villam”[192]. The Chronicle of Lambert of Waterlos records that "Ægidius natus ex Gerardi Malo-privigno" built "turrim de Businiis" in 1170[193]. The Chronicon Hanoniense records "Iacobus de Avethnis, Egidius de Sancto Oberto, Rasso de Gaura" among the knights who served Baudouin V Comte de Hainaut at the siege of "castrum Bretenghes" [Brettingen] in the war with “Henricus comes Namurcensis et Lusceleborch”, dated to 1172 in a later passage[194]. The Chronicon Hanoniense records in 1173 “tempore hiemali” that "miles...Egidius de Sancto Oberto in castro suo Businiis egrotavit", arranged his inheritance, and in his illness “signum crucis Domini sibi assumpsit”[195]. [“...Egidii de S. Auberto...” subscribed the charter dated Jun 1184 under which “Hugo de Oisi Camerac. castellan.” donated “circa villam de Maineriis et vallem Crepicordii” to Cambrai Saint-Aubert at the synod called by “Rogero Episcopo”[196]. This charter may refer to Gilles de Saint-Aubert if he recovered from his illness in 1173. Otherwise it may refer to his son Gilles, although the latter is more usually referred to as Gilles de Berlaimont.]

m firstly (1151) as her second husband, BERTHE de Ribemont, widow of OTTO Comte de Duras, daughter of GODEFROI [II] de Ribemont Châtelain de Valenciennes Seigneur de Bouchain & his wife Yolande van Geldern. The Chronicon Hanoniense records that "Yoandis comitissa vidua" married secondly "Godefrido de Bochesin castellano Valencenensi", by whom she was mother of "filium…Godefridum et filiam Bertam [uxorem] comiti de Duraz, deinde nupsit Egidio de Sancto Oberto a quo filium…Gerardum et filiam…[uxorem] Nicholao de Barbencione"[197]. The Chronicle of Lambert of Waterlos records that "Ægidius…adolescens, natus ex Gerardi Malo-filiastro" married "Bertam, comitis Balduini Hainoensis sororem non germanam", without the consent of the count, in 1151[198]. The Chronicle of Lambert of Waterlos records that "Ægidius natus ex Gerardi Malo-privigno" built "turrim de Businiis" in 1170[199].

m secondly MATHILDE de Berlaimont, daughter of GILLES de Chin Seigneur de Berlaimont & his wife Eva de Chièvres. The Chronicon Hanoniense records that, after the death of his first wife, "Egidius [de Sancto Oberto]" married "Mathildem de Berlainmont, Egidii de Cin et Damison de Cirvia filiam, que Mathildis ex parte patris sui hereditaria Berlainmont et summam Hanoniensis curie camerariam tenuit"[200]. Gilles [II] & his first wife had two children:
