Name: Guillaume du Hommet
Occupation: Constable of Normandy
Change Date: 27 MAR 2013
About 1180 king Henry II granted to William du Hommet (de Hometo, de Humez) the office of constable of Normandy described as having been previously held by William's father Richard du Hommet.
About 1199 William du Hommet, constable of Normandy, Fulk Paynel, and three of Agatha's brothers witnessed the gift by her son Geoffrey to his sister Clemence for her marriage to Ranulf earl of Chester. A charter of William du Hommet, tentatively dated 1184, was witnessed by his wife Lucy.
Of William I's daughters, Agatha married first William, heir of Ralph lord of Fougères, and then Fulk II Paynel. Her dowry lay at Lingreville in the Cotentin, and for a time her daughter Clemence de Fougères received Auppegard as her dowry when she married Earl Ranulf of Chester. Agnes, the other daughter of William I du Hommet, married the Anglo-Norman lord Baldwin Wake (d.1205), lord of Bourne (Lincs.), with Lower Winchendon (Bucks) as her dowry. Lucy du Hommet (fl. 1234), wife of Richard de Vernon (d. 1231 x 1234), lord of Néhou, may well have been another daughter (although the name Lucy is also found in the cadet line of Hommet-Cléville).
