Many of the approximate years of birth have been adjusted to agree with those shown in website: www.genealogiequebec.info which seem to make a better fit.]
Rollo Rollosson appears in only one other website: www.tudorplace.com.ar

39.  [HEID251] Hrollager/Hrollaug Ragnvaldsson (born c.874, son of [GLUM279] Earl Rognvald, see GLUMRA), campaigned in Iceland. He married [FLAN282] Ermina le goz d'Avranches (born c.880, probably daughter of Count Baldwin I of Flanders & Judith Carolingian, see FLANDERS COUNTY). He died c.920, and Emina died c.935. [Ermina's parentage had been proposed by Alexandre Mazas in his "Histoire des Comtes de Flandres" (1843), which provides Hrollanger's issue with distinguished French royal ancestry.]

34-38. [HEID269] Horolf/Rollo Turstain/Thurstan of Heidmark (born c.909), baptised Robert, married [BLOI302] Gerlotte Blois (born c.910, daughter of Thibaut de Blois, see CHAMPAGNE COUNTY) Gerlotte died c.950, and Rollo died c.962.

36.  [HEID271] Ansfrid I the Dane Rollosson (born c.935, eldest son of [HEID261] Horolf/Rollo), 1st Count of Hiermer, married (c.962) Helloe de Beulac (born c.937, daughter of 37. Count Godfrey de Beulac, born 905). He died c.978, and Helloe died c.1000.

35.  [HEID281] Ansfrid II Unfroi le goz (born c.963), Vicomte de Hiesmes, Steward of Normandy, married [NORM317] Guimara (believed to be a Breton lady, whose father was [NORM299] DUKE RICHARD I, see NORMANDY DUKEDOM). Ansfrid died 1034.

"Domesday Descendants" (K.S.B. Keats-Rowan, 2002) mentions that a charter of the abbey of Montivilliers features the nun Wimardis, widow of Ansfrid the steward who gave Ectot [possibly Saint-Germain-d'Ectot, in Calvados] to this religious house, as later attested by Robert. The book also mentions that Robert de Moyaux [in Calvados] (at the request of his mother Wimardis) gave to this religious house land that Ansfrid had held in the forest of Rouvray.

A community of nuns was established (1035) at Montivilliers by [NORM321] DUKE ROBERT OF NORMANDY, with the first abbess being [NORM316] Beatrice (widow of [COMB331] Ebles de Turenne, illegitimate daughter of [NORM299] DUKE RICHARD I OF NORMANDY). This strongly suggests that Guimara and Abbess Beatrice were half-sisters, with the same relationship between Guimara and [NORM313] Emma of Normandy (who married in April 1002 [WESK349] King Aethelred II the unready), thus making Ansfrid's wife as the sister-in-law of the Anglo-Saxon king. Guimara's name is absent from a list of Duke Richard's children, but this could be because she was not born in Normandy, as her mother was a Breton.
