  • ID: I08255
  • Name: Hugh de VIVONIA , Lord of Chewton, Sir 1 2
  • Sex: M
  • ALIA: Hugh de Vivonia de /Forz/, Lord of Chewton
  • Name: Hugh de VIVONNE , Lord of Chewton, Sir 3
  • Birth: 1195 in Vivonne, Vienne, Poitu, France
  • Death: BEF 1249 in Chewton Mendip, Wells, Somerset, England 4
  • Note:
    Hugh de Vivonia, d. by 1249, Seneschal of Gascony 1221-1232. [Magna Charta Sureties]

    Hugh de Vivonia (de Forz), lord of Chewton, Somerset. [Magna Charta Sureties]

    Sheriff of Somerset.

    NOTE: It is tempting to place Hugh as a younger son of William de Forz, Count of Aumale & Lord of Holderness, d. 1195. They both come from Poitu. In fact Douglas Richardson (post to SGM 22 Mar 1999) suggests that Hugh's son William was born in Forz/Fors, which was the same place that William de Forz was supposedly from. However there is no indication that they are directly related, and there is an article by Sydney Painter that attempts to trace Hugh's ancestry back to one Jocelin de Lusignan (uncle of Hugh IV of Lusignan), who held the castle of Vivonne (in Poitu) and was supposedly ancestor of the Vivonne family.
