Eudes (or Odes) "The Great" de Poligny

around 1220 - after 1278

Knight, Bailiff and Constable of Burgundy

Eudes, a knight, was the son of Gui de Poligny.

With ancestors who were provosts of Poligny and Dôle, a grandfather and uncle who were successively provosts of Dôle, and brothers who were knights, there is no doubt that Eudes and the de Poligny family were close to their overlords, the Counts of Burgundy.

In fact, it was Count Hugues himself who not only offered the "châtellenie de Poligny" to Eudes, but also, through future inheritance, to his son (Odon de Poligny) and even to his future grandson (Jean I de Poligny).

Eudes thus found himself chancellor and captain of the Château de Poligny, one of the most imposing buildings of its time.

In this capacity, he was responsible for the government and policing of the castle, ordering labour and services from neighbouring villages and fining defaulters. He was also the only person empowered to publicise the imminent danger of war and to require "retrahants" to withdraw to the castle with their furniture.

He judges crimes that do not carry the death penalty and rules by appeal on the judgements of the provosts.

As an anecdote, Eudes also had other emoluments specific to Poligny, which gave him the right to an enormous quantity of woodland, the enjoyment of vineyards located just below the castle, and the profits and revenues of the provostry, which was now united with the castellany.

However, Eudes' destiny took a real turn in 1265 with his first appointment as Bailiff of Poligny and its suburbs, which then included no fewer than 24 villages.

He had the opportunity to demonstrate more than ever his qualities as a representative of the authority of the Count of Burgundy, and on many occasions showed himself to be both firm and fair.

His qualities were so well appreciated that 4 years later he was appointed Bailiff General of Burgundy (1269).

To thank him for the work he had accomplished and to show their gratitude, Count Hugues and his wife Alix granted him exemption from the tithe on his land in Poligny for himself and his male descendants from eldest to eldest.

The consecration finally came later, in 1275, with his elevation to the dignity of Constable of Burgundy (supreme commander of the armies) by the Countess Alix, who was then remarried to the Count of Savoy and Aosta (Philip I). He was the ideal person to carry out this crucial task.

It was a time of great tension, exacerbated by a change of alliance in favour of France.

In her will and codicils of 1278, Alix gave the House of Poligny further proof of her affection and trust. They contained several bequests both in money and in personal objects, for Dame Marie de Poligny, wife of N.N. de Cromary; for Estuette her daughter and Huguenin her son; and several bequests of the same nature for Odette de Poligny, her maid. Alix died in 1279.

Holder of the rights to the butcher's market in Poligny and in 1425 for the exemption from the tithe on his funds.

He is known as being "one of the bravest knights of the Burgundian Duke Philippe " The Good ".

Around 1430, he married his first cousin, Alix de Salins-Vincelles. Their common great-grandparents were Géraud de Salins, known as "The Bastard of Salins" and Laure de Commercy, Dame de Lemuy*.

In 1452 he accompanied the Duke in his expedition against the bourgeoisie of the city of Ghent to restore peace there. After the failed talks, on July 23, 1453, the armies found themselves in Gaver. Three times the duke's troops are forced to retreat, the Ghent artillery constantly changing position.

The explosion of a powder cart in the Ghent ranks changed the course of the battle. The Burgundians take advantage of the situation and counter-attack. Jean III de Poligny was then fatally wounded during the final charge, depriving him of victory.

16,000 patisans of Ghent succumbed.

François II de Poligny

vers 1641-1713

1st earl of Poligny 1642 -1713

At just 1 year old, François was orphaned by his father Philibert, who died in September 1642, at the height of the Thirty Years' War, in a time of chaos.

France, fighting against Spain, invaded and wiped out Franche Comté, forcing François to follow his mother Marie Benigne de Lénoncourt as she fled.

Many uncles and cousins died during this period, leaving property and land fallow.

François de Poligny, the eldest surviving son, received a large number of inheritances at the end of the war. 

This fortune enabled him to build the new château d'Evans on the ruins of the old one and to settle there.

Further evidence of his affluence can be found in an episode in which he lent 2,000 francs in 1658 to his cousin, the governor-candidate of the County of Burgundy, the Marquis Charles Louis de Bauffremont (son of Marguerite de Poligny).

However, it seems that it was only after the signing of the Treaty of Nijmegen in 1678, when France took possession of the Franche Comté, that the title of Count was given to François and his eldest descendants.

The Kingdom of France saw an opportunity to win over the local nobility by bestowing honours and titles on them or making them their own.

In the picture he had painted of his young eldest son François Gabriel in 1685, François did not forget to include the Poligny coat of arms and to list the titles (Count of Poligny, Lord of Augéa, Lord of Evans, etc.) in case anyone was in any doubt!

On 11 June 1672 he married Claude Etiennette Jacques de Nans, his 8th cousin. Their common ancestors were Etienne Merceret, Treasurer General of the County of Burgundy, and Girarde de Faletans.

Of the many children born to François and Claude, only two have survived: François Gabriel, ancestor of the present-day Reumont de Poligny family, and Claude Françoise, ancestor of the present-day Prince Albert of Monaco and King Philippe of Belgium.

7 children: François Gabriel, who succeeded him, Claude Françoise, Marguerite Antoinette, François Henri, Claude Louis and Charles Antoine.

1677-1746

Earl of Poligny 1713 -1746

François-Gabriel is the son of François II de Poligny who is enriched by multiple inheritances at the end of the 30 years war, allowing him to build the new castle of Evans but also to lend 2000 francs to the governor in 1658. -candidate of the County of Burgundy M. de Bauffremont.

François-Gabriel de Poligny succeeded him and created the new village of Evans.

On 09 April 1711 he married his 7th cousin Claudine Antoinette de Beaurepaire.

Their common ancestors were Aymard Bouton, Seigneur du Fay, Chamberlain to the Duke of Burgundy and Anne d'Oiselet, Baroness of Oiselet*.

He decides to build near his castle, on the ruins of the ancient seigniorial chapel, the Saint John the Baptist church which includes the oratory. The construction of the Nave and the choir was completed in 1732. The memory of his exemplary nature, of his spirit, of the dignity of his behaviour is perpetuated long after him. He is close to his sister Claude who corresponds regularly by mail. These letters read as a family were deemed to have as much charm as Madame de Sévigné's ones.

5 children: Charles-Claude, Françoise-Gasparine, Simonne, Antoinette and Marguerite.

1717 - 1876

Earl of Poligny 1746  -1776

.

Known for his high and generous soul, Charles Claude is at the same time in the excess of his qualities; he is passionate .

He surrounded the castle of Evans with  gardens drawn on plans left by Sir Le Notre and framed by a large forest routed for hunting.
He returns fertile land to cultivation, and ensures public health by giving regular courses to the stagnant waters of his domain. The fiefs of Toulouse, Augea and Darbonnay, which had been included in the division of Hugues, head of his branch, still belong to him. A few years before his death, he handed over to the town of Poligny his rights to the butcher's shops, the last vestiges of the seigneurial rights so preeminent of his ancestors over this town. He entered early service, under the orders of an uncle, lieutenant general of the king's armies, commander in Provence, and became captain of the king's regiment - infantry, and knight of Saint-Louis. He receives a
  shot in the chest, retired from Prague in 1742,

On December 16, having no other choice, his friend General Charles Fouquet de Belle-Isle left Prague; leaving him in a city hospital with 8 other officers and a large number of wounded and sick soldiers.

Back in France under honors, he was promised the rank of colonel. However, his injury did not allow him to follow his military career to the end. More than 30 years later, this wound accidentally reopens and hastens its end.

He was carried away in two days, at the age of fifty-nine.

Jean-Baptiste, Dominique "Le Beau" de Poligny

1752 - 1813

Earl of Poligny 1776 -1813

Jean-Baptiste was born out of wedlock on 23 October 1752 in Besançon.

His mother, Agnèze Bery, died in childbirth.

The following year, his father Charles Claude de Poligny married Marie Mignot de La Bévière, who gave him only daughters.

Jean Baptiste therefore grew up at Château d'Evans in this "blended" family.

Despite his status as a "bastard" son, the absence of a legitimate male heir allowed him to be elected to succeed his father.

Charles Claudius made use of this possibility provided by monarchical law for all individuals born of free persons ("soluts") at the time of their birth.

Furthermore, Charles Claudius had no intention of relinquishing his right to pass on the support of his social status to his son, who was not only born of free persons but was also the only male descendant and, moreover, the eldest child in the family.

His father therefore legitimised him and supported him in all his choices.

Tall, elegant and with regular features, he was known by the nickname "Le Beau Poligny".

However, Jean Baptiste was initially attracted to the orders, where he wore the "petit collet" and was given the chapel at the Château de Scey-sur-Saône, owned by his father's cousin and friend, Prince Joseph de Bauffremont.

His father Charles-Claude de Poligny died in 1776 when he was 24.

Two years later, thanks to the support of the Minister of War, Mr de Narbonne, whose predecessor, Mr de Montbarrey, had been a friend of his late father, he found a job in the army.

With the authorisation of the Franche-Comté parliament, he joined the Swiss regiment of Meuron when it was created in 1781 to serve the Dutch East India Company (the Netherlands was France's ally at the time). Jean-Baptiste de Poligny served as an officer in South Africa and above all in Ceylon, where he appears to have taken part in the last battle of Gondelour (1783).

He resigned in 1790 and left shortly afterwards for the island of Saint Domingue to settle some business. 

On his return to France in 1791, he made a request to the Minister of War shortly before King Louis XVI fled to Varennes. He obtained the post of Commissaire des guerres. The revolution forced him to conceal his origins and, in the midst of the revolutionary terror, on 24 December 1793 he married Anne Monique Rosalie Regnault, daughter of the former alderman of the town of Châteaudun, under the simple name of "Poligny".

In 1799, he was posted to Toulon.

He retired to Chartres in 1802, where he was reunited with his wife and children at the Château de Gland. He was provisionally reinstated in 1809 and from 1812 was responsible for the departments of Eur et Loir and Loiret. He died in May 1813.

Agnès de Poligny

1794 - 1872

Countess of Poligny 

Agnès was the eldest of her three sisters: Louise, Lucie and Adèle.

She grew up at the Château de Gland and then in Châteaudun after the death of her father Jean Baptiste de Poligny in May 1813.

She waited another 8 long years before marrying Jean Quentin, a 51-year-old cavalry colonel and veteran of the Napoleonic Wars.

He was the son of Claude Quentin, Royal Mayor of Château-Salins, and Anne Poirot de Valcourt. 

Her future husband was not yet 23 and had been an assistant captain in the general staff of the Armée du Nord, commanded by General Dumouriez, since 01/09/1792.

It was during this period that he struck up a friendship with the son of Philippe "Egalité" d'Orléans, the future King Louis Philippe, who served in the same corps as Lieutenant General. 

Jean did him a great service, enabling him to escape from the people who wanted to seize him.

Louis-Philippe was thus able to emigrate and find refuge in Switzerland. Correspondence with the Duc d'Orléans and later with the sovereign bears witness to this. 

However, Jean was denounced and arrested on 4 April 1793.

He spent a year and a half in the jails of the Republic.

A document from the Comité de Sureté Générale de la Convention Nationale, dated 20 brumaire an 3 (10/10/1794), ordered the release of Jean-François Quentin from the Abbey where he was imprisoned and the lifting of the seal.

However, this would leave its mark on his career.

He was demoted one year later to the rank of second lieutenant in the 22nd cavalry regiment on 19 March 1796 and was awarded a lieutenant's commission in the 22nd cavalry regiment by Carnot on 18 June 1797.

He did not regain his rank of captain (in the same regiment) until the 20 of october 1798.

He was aide-de-camp to General Moreau in Germany in 1800.

On 23 May 1803 (3 Prairial, Year 11), he received his brevet as captain in the 6th Regiment of Mounted Chasseurs from the First Consul Bonaparte, a document which states that he had fought in all the campaigns of the Revolution.

He was on the staff of the army of the Rhine in 1802 and distinguished himself particularly at Cosenza in 1807 and Vicenec in 1809.

He was awarded the Legion of Honour in 1809, but still as a captain!

An aide-major in the old imperial guard (1st scout regiment) in 1813, he became a squadron leader on 21 December 1813 in the 1st scout regiment and then in the 12th regiment of mounted chasseurs in 1814.

He was hit by a lance at the battle of Moskowa. In 1813, his left arm was shattered after he had crossed the Russian lines twice, and he was given 3 months' leave at Château Salins career: (file no. 70632, series 3YF in the Vincennes archives) A certificate from the mayor of St Junien, arrdt of Rochechouart (Haute Vienne), states that Jean, a squadron leader, intervened on 21 July 1815 to quell some rowdy soldiers who wanted to tear down the white royalist flag hoisted by the municipality on the bell tower.

He was made a Chevalier de Saint-Louis in 1816.

In 1821, he married Agnès Poligny (no particle on the marriage certificate because of her birth certificate drawn up during the Revolution, but baptism and death certificate with particle).

He was a major in the Calvados dragoons, stationed at Aire, in the district of Saint Omer in the Pas de Calais region.

On 11 April 1826, Charles X conferred on him the rank of honorary lieutenant-colonel when he retired to Châteaudun, where he was a member of the town council (again in 1831).

This retirement was apparently against his will on the basis of a medical certificate stating that he was obese and had reduced vision, which he disputed.

In 1832 he returned to service as a lieutenant-colonel in the remonte department at Alençon and asked to be posted to the general staff. In 1830 his friend Louis-Philippe came to power as the new sovereign of France and he expressed his gratitude to him on several occasions.

Jean ceased his military service on 22 August 1833.

He was a corresponding member of the Société des Sciences, Arts et Belles Lettres de Mâcon and wrote two works, one on convicts and the other on prison conditions.

He died in 1845, leaving Agnès to mourn for almost 27 years.

Earl of Poligny 1846 -1906

An only son, Louis spent a rather solitary childhood with his mother, governesses and a retired father in poor physical condition, who died when he was 21.

However, his father Jean Quentin had been good friends with a certain Pierre Tousch, both senior officers who lived in Le Mans.

So it was no coincidence that Louis married his daughter Léonide in 1855, a few years after their deaths.

She was also his 15th cousin*.

Their common ancestors were Bermond II d'Anduze, Seigneur de Pierregourde et de Caumeyrac, Grand Chamberlain of France, and Florie de Blacas, Dame de La Voulte.

Gustave lived on his income from a property called "Sainte Barbe", inherited from an uncle by marriage who had no descendants.

His life's struggle, to ensure that the Poligny heritage was not extinguished forever: "To repair what the Revolution tried to erase".

He became Count of Poligny in 1846, a year after his father's death, after his mother Agnès made a notarised declaration rectifying the civil status error of 'forgetting' the particle in both his birth and marriage certificates.

His mother, Agnès, then took her maiden name with a particle and was mentioned as such in her death certificate.

In 1867, he took another legal action, this time to confirm the addition of the name Poligny.

He claimed to be the only legitimate male descendant of the Poligny family, basing his claim on the customary rules of inheritance in the County of Burgundy and on Article 3 of the Habsburg Archdukes' placard of 1616. His request was rejected, as the court was not competent to rule on laws inherited from the Holy Roman Empire and which were, moreover, foreign to it.

The custom was established, however, and with no male descendants, his eldest daughter Zoé continued the tradition by adding her grandmother's name to that of her husband Adolphe Reumont.

Louis ended his life with the Reumonts from Poligny at the Villa Zoê in Nice, after selling the Hôtel particulier in Sainte Barbe (Le Mans).

His will bears witness to a serious dispute (lawsuit and hospital) with his sons-in-law Deschamps Larivière and, to a lesser extent, Lacoste de Laval. This was undoubtedly a property dispute.

His daughter Zoé, being the eldest, would have had all the attention (even financial) of her father...

Countess of Poligny 1906  -1941

After spending the first part of her life peacefully with her family at the Hôtel Sainte Barbe near Le Mans, Zoé, born Quentin de Poligny, married Adolphe Reumont, an annuitant, on 23 June 1886, at the age of 30.

Adolphe's parents were first cousins Louis Reumont and Emilie-Constance (born Reumont).

His father Louis, a great art collector (as evidenced by two auctions after his death) and a specialist in the pictorial works of Andrea del Sarto (16th century), came from an old family in the north of France who had made their fortune mainly in textiles.

She was passionate about hydrotherapy, which was very popular at the end of the 19th century. She acquires the thermal baths of Berthemont-les-Bains in the hinterland of Nice, which it entrusts management to an Italian.

A fervent Catholic, Zoé Reumont de Poligny dedicates a large part of her life to charity.

She creates in Nice "The work and the needle" to help the single women in distress by the  training in the profession of seamstress.

In 1924, she wrote a Christian literary event with "The Complete History of Our Lady of Lourdes and Little Bernadette" (Editions A. Teillon) which reveals the founding event of the pilgrimages to Lourdes. Pope Leo XIII addresses his prayers for Zoe in thanks. Bernadette Soubirou was beatified in 1925. As an extension of her first book Zoé Reumont de Poligny, subsequently written in 1930, "Lourdes, the ultimate truth" (Editions Gay & Fortoul), Bernadette was canonized four years later.
