About Mahaut Félicité de Donzy

From Medlands:

GEOFFROY [III] de Donzy (-29 Apr 1157). He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Donzy. “Hugo de La Ferté cognomento Blancus, qui ex parte matris, domini Gaufridi de Donziaco” donated property to La Charité-sur-Loire, approved by “præfatus dominus Gaufridus de Donziaco…cum duobus filiis Herveo et Gaufrido” by charter dated 1151[3311]. Gervais abbé de Saint-Germain d'Auxerre and "Gaufredum Donziacum" reached agreements relating to Diges, with the consent of "B…uxor Gaufredi et duo filii eius, Herveus…et Gaufredus", by charter dated 1151[3312]. m firstly [CLEMENCE de Bourgogne, daughter of HUGUES II Duke of Burgundy & his wife Mathilde de Mayenne (1117-). The primary source which confirms her name, parentage and marriage has not been identified. According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the first wife of Geoffroy [III] is not known, referred to only as "B…1151"[3313], but this reference can presumably identified with Geoffroy's second wife referred to as such in his charter dated 1151. Some secondary sources say that Clémence de Bourgogne was the second wife of Hervé [III] Seigneur de Donzy, son of Geoffrey [III], but this is difficult to sustain chronologically considering her supposed birth date.] m secondly GARNA de Toucy, daughter of NARJOT [I] Seigneur de Toucy & his wife Ermengarde ---. Her marriage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[3314]. The primary source which confirms her parentage and her marriage has not been identified. Gervais abbé de Saint-Germain d'Auxerre and "Gaufredum Donziacum" reached agreements relating to Diges, with the consent of "B…uxor Gaufredi et duo filii eius, Herveus…et Gaufredus", by charter dated 1151[3315], which likely refers to Geoffroy’s second wife as the document is dated only six years before the recorded date of his death. Guillaume [de Toucy] Bishop of Auxerre approved spending commitments of the nuns of Crisenon, in memory of "nobilis matrone, Garne…sororis defuncti Ytherii de Tuciaco", by charter dated 1178[3316].

Geoffroy [III] & his first wife had one child:

a) [MATHILDE [Félicité] de Donzy . According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Mathilde [Félicité] was the daughter of Hervé III by his second wife Clémence de Bourgogne[3317]. However, as explained above, it is chronologically more likely that Clémence, her mother, was the first wife of Geoffroy [III]. The primary source which confirms her parentage and her marriage has not been identified. "Arardus de Chacennaio" confirmed donations to Clairvaux made by "avus meus Ansericus, laudante uxore sua Humbelina", with the consent of "uxore mea Mathilde et nepote meo Jacobo", by charter dated 11 Dec 1179[3318]. "Erardus dominus Chacennaii…Mathilde uxore sua" confirmed donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1182[3319].

m ERARD [I] de Chacenay, son of JACQUES Seigneur de Chacenay & his wife Agnes de Brienne (-Acre 1191, before 12 Jul).]
