Family notes:

·         Many genealogies give Eudon I (b.999) as s/o §§Duke Geoffrey I of Brittany (b.980, fl.992, m.by996, d.11/20/1008) & 5117377445. Duchess Hawise of Normandy (b.~973, fl.1008, d.1026). The timeline is pushed to have Geoffroi born by 1079, much less have for Eudon I to have been born in 999. There has to be 1 or more generations missing.

·         1008, Viscomte Guéthenoc Porhoët, founded the 1st fortress, on the river Oust, which would take the name of his son Josselin. [By timeline there will be at least 1 generation missing.]

·         1066, §§Vicomte Eudon I at the Battle of Hastings with William the Conqueror.

Children of Geoffroi and Hawise:

i. Vicomte Eudo II de Porhoët (79959028), born ~1120 in France. [1st son]

ii. Alain de Porhoët la Zoche (19989864), born ~1140 in France. [3rd son]
