  • Notes 
    • Also called Hugo, etc. Sheriff of Somerset and Dorset, 1240-1. Constable of Bristol Castle; Seneschal of Gascony 1221, 1231.

      "[A] Poitevin mercenary captain of King John who [was] rewarded with an English heiress." [Charles M. Hansen, citation details below.]

      Jim Weber posts a caveat: "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."

      (The William de Forz under discussion above is the one mentioned in CP I:352-53, second husband of Hawise, daughter of William, Count of Aumale, d. 1179.)
