  • Notes 
    • He was killed in an attack on the place Complete Peerage describes as "the castle of Honnecourt, on the St. Quentin canal, arr. of Cambrai." While this is a confusing geographical description, there is no excuse for the several online trees that appear to have decided "Cambrai" is an abbreviation for Cambridgeshire.
