About Mayeul I, vicomte de Narbonne

PLEASE DON'T FOLLOW THE MedLands LINE-UP GIVEN BELOW.

  • It is kept here for reference, but the charters don't substantiate some of the connections. It seems far better to follow Pavillet in his "Histoire Généaligique de la Maison de Villeneuve en Languedoc" (referenced under the Doucments section).
  • In addition, MedLands does not list Wachaire as a son of Mayeul - even though it references him ("Walchario"). Wachaire is key for this line-up, as he is the head of the "de Villeneuve" descendants throughout the Languedoc and the Provence (see Pavillet for further detail).
  • This is a curated profile. Please get in touch if corrections need to be made on new evidence.

(a) MAYEUL (-Aug 993). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. [A charter dated 4 May 948 noted obligations to Cluny of “Vualterius” relating to property “in villa Verchesoni et in Galna seu in Petrolio”, in the presence of “Vualterium vicecomitem…et monachi…Maiolus”[565]. No proof has been found that this monk was the future abbot of Cluny but this looks probable.] Abbot of Cluny [948]. “Abbas Maiolus” is named for the first time in a charter dated [948/49][566]. He is last named in a charter dated Aug 993[567].

ii) [MAYEUL [III] (-after 24 Oct 946). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Vicomte de Narbonne. "Maiolus vicecomes" donated property "Ursum…situs super fluvio Urbione intra paga Carcassonne et Narbonense" to the abbey of Lagrasse for the souls of "patris mei et matris meæ et uxoris mæ Ranilone et…alia uxore mea quæ fuit quondam…Estuer et pro filiabus meis et pro filiis meis Simplicio et Vuadamiro" by charter dated 24 Oct 946[568].] m firstly ESTHER, daughter of ---.

(c) daughters . "Maiolus vicecomes" donated property to the abbey of Lagrasse "…pro filiabus meis et pro filiis meis Simplicio et Vuadamiro" by charter dated 24 Oct 946[573].

b) AUBRY [Alberic] ([880/90]-[10 Sep] 945, bur Besançon Saint-Etienne). A charter dated 15 Jun 911, under which Arnust Archibishop of Narbonne donated property to Saint-Paul de Narbonne, names "infantes Majolo vicecomite et uxori suæ Raymundæ...Walchario et...Albericho vicecomite", the wording implying that the parents were deceased at that date[574]. A genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, names "Albericus Narbonensis" and his marriage to "filiam Raculfi vicecomitis post mortem domini Bernonis Matiscensis episcopi", after which he made himself first Comte de Mâcon[575].

c) [MAYEUL [II] (-[Jun 949/20 Apr 950]). Vicomte de Mâcon. The parentage of Vicomte Mayeul is not known, but it looks like that he was an otherwise unknown younger brother of Aubry Comte de Mâcon. However, his name, as well as the use of the names Gauthier, Raymonde and Aubry among his descendnants, indicates a close connection with the family of the vicomtes de Narbonne. From a chronological point of view, it is likely that he was of the same generation as Aubry Comte de Mâcon. It would also make sense that Comte Aubry appointed his younger brother as his vicomte in Mâcon. It does not appear likely that Mayeul [II] was the same person as shown above as Mayeul [III], as a charter names the wife of Mayeul [II] as Landrada, whereas another charter names the two wives of Mayeul [III] as shown above. Vicomte Mayeul is named in an undated charter relating to the inheritance of Landry, in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon[576]. Vicomte Mayeul subscribed a charter dated to 936 relating to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon[577].]
