  • Notes 
    • "Odo puer nepos comiti Tethberti" witnessed a charter dated to [6 Dec 1047/31 Aug 1055] under which the canons of St Maurice d'Angers temporarily relinquished certain rights in the church of Joué. He succeeded his father in [1048] as Comte de Troyes. He succeeded as Comte d’Aumâle, de iure uxoris. He was disinherited before 1071 and sought refuge in Normandy. He was granted the lordship of Holderness in [1087] by William I King of England, following the forfeiture of Drogo de La Beuvrière. A charter of King Henry II records donations to York St Mary, including the donation of “manerium Horneshay et ecclesiam…et Marram eius piscaturam et Thorp ibi juxta” by “Odo comes et Stephanus filius eius”. Florence of Worcester records that "comitem Odonem de Campania…Stephani patrem" was imprisoned in [1096] for his part in the conspiracy which planned to place his son on the English throne. He lost the lordship of Holderness. ... He is referred to as “comes Odo” in the Lindsey survey 1115/18.
      ---------------------------------
      Count of Troyes and of Meaux from 1047 to 1066, then Count of Aumale from 1069 to 1115...
      He was still a minor at the death of his father, and his uncle Theobald III of Blois acted as regent of Troyes...
      Adelaide was also sister of William the Conqueror and Eudes accompanied his brother-in-law in the Norman conquest of England (1066). Theobald III then seized Eudes' counties in the Champagne region, but Eudes accepted from William the County of Aumale in the Duchy of Normandy and the County of Holderness in the Kingdom of England. Implicated in a plot against the King William Rufus, he was imprisoned in 1095.
