About Industria

Her ancestry is undocumented.

The usual reconstruction is that she was a daughter of Flavius Probus and Eulalia.

Some reconstructions make her a daughter of Chlodéric the Parricide (often called Chlodoreius). However, it is more likely that her son Ferreolus married Chlodéric's daughter.

Christian Settipani proposed on the basis of the onomastics and content of the Vita Firmini , that she was a daughater of Count Ennodius and a sister of Ruricius , Bishop of Limoges.

Tonantius Ferreolus (senator)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tonantius Ferreolus (also called Tonance Ferréol) (440 or say 450 – 511 or after 517), vir clarissimus between 507 and 511, was a Roman Senator who lived in Narbonne, then Narbo, and a Senator of Narbonne between 479 and 517. He was also present and seen at Rome in 469 and 475 and was known to be a friend and relative of Sidonius Apollinaris. He was the son of Tonantius Ferreolus and wife Papianilla. His wife's name was thought to have been lost to the ages but, according to the reference below she was Industria of Narbonne, then Narbo, born ca 450 or 465, whom he married before 475, daughter of Flavius Probus, Roman Senator, and wife Eulalia (?) (a german cousin of Sidonius Apollinaris).

Tonantius Ferreolus was a witness when Sidonius Apollinaris, then bishop of Clermont, between 461 and 467, sent a letter to his friend, Donidius, describing a visit he made, a "most delightful time in the most beautiful country in the company of Tonantius Ferreolus (the elder) and Apollinaris, the most charming hosts in the world". He was on the estates of his father when Sidonius Appolinarius visited between 461 and 467. As Sidonius relates, "at Prusianum, as the other (estate) is called, (the young) Tonantius and his brothers turned out of their beds for us because we could not be always dragging our gear about: they are surely the elect among the nobles of our own age".

He was visited by his cousin St. Apollinaris of Valence in 517.
