Individual Note

Guillaume 1er (II), seigneur de Saint-Bris, prit part à la guerre du roi de France contre celui d'Angleterre et fut fait prison- nier dans une bataille que ces deux princes se donnèrent dans le Vexin français, en 1198. Animé du zèle des chré- tiens de son temps, il prit plus d'une fois les armes pour aller combattre les infidèles et trouva la mort en Chypre, dans une de ces expéditions où était son frère Dreux, seigneur de Loches.

Parmi ses enfants dont nous aurons occasion de parler plus loin, nous citerons Guy de Mello, qui fut élu évèque d'Auxerre, en 1247 ; Marguerite, la jeune, alliée à Guillaume de Villehardoîn, sire de Lezinnes ; enfin, Agnès, qui épousa Pierre de Rochefort, seigneur de Bragelogne.

"Guillaume [I] de MELLO, son of Dreux [I] de MELLO & his wife Ermengarde de MONCY ([1161/70]-after Jan 1243). "Drogo de MELLOTO et Ermengardis uxor mea" founded Vieupou priory, with the consent of “Domini Guidonis de DAMPETRA et domini Milonis fratris sui et Guillelmi filii nostri”, by charter dated 1172. “Drocho de MERLOTO miles et...Willelmus filius eius” attested a donation to Saint-Germain made by “D. uxor Hugonis militis de Chevannis” by charter dated Apr 1208. “Droco de MERLOTO senior”, on the point of leaving for Jerusalem “apud domum suam de Belca” Beauche in the presence of “filiis suis Willelmo et Drocone juniore”, recorded that the men of Saint-Maurice did not have the right to use the wood of Saint-Aubin-Château-Neuf by charter dated 1216. Seigneur de SAINT-BRIS. “Guillaume de MELLO Seigneur de SAINT-BRIS” granted vine cultivation rights to the monks of Reigny, with the consent of “Elisabeth sa femme”, by charter dated 1216. A charter dated 1223 records judgment in a dispute between the Abbey of Sens-Saint-Rémy and “Droconem de MELLOTO dominum Lochiarum” concerning certain serfs, with “Willelmo de MELLOTO fratre suo” acting as guarantor. “Guillelmus Dominus de MERLOTO, Milo Dominus NOERIORUM et Droco Dominus de ESPOISSE et CHATEL-CHINUN” certified that “Gaucherium de S.-FLORENTINO armigerum...concedente Eustagia uxore sua” had renounced rights in favour of Pontigny by charter dated May 1240. “Guillaume de MELLO Seigneur de SAINT-BRIS” acted as guarantor if “Archambaud de BOURBON son neveu” failed to observe the marriage convention between “Jean Comte de DREUX et Marie sœur d´Archambaud” under a charter dated Nov 1242. “Guillaumes de MELLOT Sires de SAINT-BRIZ” swore hommage to Thibaut King of NAVARRE Comte de CHAMPAGNE for revenue from “la foire de Bar-sur-Aube” by charter dated Jan 1242 (O.S.).

m Elisabeth, daughter of --- (-after 1216). “Guillaume de MELLO Seigneur de SAINT-BRIS” granted vine cultivation rights to the monks of Reigny, with the consent of “Elisabeth sa femme”, by charter dated 1216. Her parentage is not known. According to Gallia Christiana, she was “ex nobilissimis proceribus MONTIS S. JOHANNIS”. No connection with the family of the Seigneurs de MONT-SAINT-JEAN (see below) has yet been established. The chronology of the marriages of her grandchildren suggests that her children must have been born well into the 13th century, in turn suggesting that Elisabeth was considerably younger than her husband. If this is correct, she may have been his second wife.

Guillaume and his wife had five children : - Guillaume II; - Dreux II; - Guy; - Isabelle and - N... or Ne..."
