About Jean I Montgommery, comte de Ponthieu

Jean Montgomery I, Count d’Ponthieu (1141 - 1191) was Count of Ponthieu from 1147 to the death of his father, Guy II of Ponthieu and the lifetime of his grandfather Wilhelm I of Ponthieu.

Son of Guy II of Ponthieu (1115 - 1147), Count of Ponthieu, son and grandson of Helen of Burgundy (1085 † 1141).


Biography

He donated a portion of its forests (the current timber Bonance on the town of Grand Laviers) to the leper Brothers Val, a leper hospital founded in Abbeville with the Abbots of Saint-Riquier.

He adopted similar coats of arms [1] to those of the dukes of Burgundy, who were his cousins by his maternal grandmother.

Barely in office, he had a war with Bernard III, Seigneur de St. Valery, because he had fortified the Crotoy Domart, Berneuil and Bernaville which housed looters and arsonists. After various hostilities, King Louis the Young ordered that the parties agree to its board. It was decided that the case, very confused, would be settled by a duel. Before the duel took place, the parties finally agreed in May 1150: Crotoy remained the count and Domart, Berneuil Bernaville and went to the lord of Saint-Valery.

In 1166, John agreed to surrender his grandfather had done to King Henry II of England, the castles of Alençon and the Roche-Mabille, to stationing garrisons Norman and English. In 1168, John having refused passage of the troops of Henry II of England on his land because it was at war with Louis the Younger, Henry II of England burned several possessions of John, whose Vimeu.

In 1173, John supported the party at Henry Court-Mantel, revolted against the King of England, his father.

On June 9, 1184, he confirmed the right of the common people of Abbeville granted in 1130 by his grandfather, William.

In 1190, he went to the Holy Land with King Philippe Auguste. He died at the Siege of Acre (1191) on his 3rd crusade. He was buried at the Abbey of Saint-Josse-au-Bois, Saint-Josse-sur-Mer, Pas-de-Calais, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France

   2. Laura, daughter of Bernard III of St. Valery, which he broke, which earned him a threat of excommunication.
