        Hugh de Gant de Montfort was living 1124. On account of his mother being so great an heiress, assumed the name of Montfort, and inherited all the possessions of his grandfather, Hugh, who came with William, the Conqueror. This Hugh having married Adeline, daughter of Robert, Earl of Melleunt and Bellomont, and his wife Isabel de Vermandois, daughter of Hugh Magnus, 1st Crusader, son of Henry I, King of France, and Anne of Russia. He joined with her brother Waleran, and all of those who endeavored to advance William, called Clito, son of Robert of Normandy (1st Crusader), against Henry I, in 1124, and entering Normandy for that purpose, he was made a prisoner with the said Waleran, and confined for 14 years ensuing. The time of his death is not ascertained, but he left issue: Robert, Thurstan, Adeline and Ada. Robert, the elder son, died 1141, succeeded his father, but does not appear to have left any issue, as he was succeeded by his brother Thurstan.
