Families covered: Beaumont (Bellomont) of Beaumont, Beaumont of Buchan, Beaumont of Tymmore, Beaumont of Wednesbury

BE1883 (Beaumont - Viscounts Beaumont) reports as follows: "The original descent of this noble family does not appear to have been clearly ascertained. Some authorities deduce it from Lewis, son of Charles, Earl of Anjou, a younger son of Lewis VIII., king of France; some from Lewis de Brienne, 2nd son of John de Brienne, the last king of Jerusalem; and some from the Viscounts Beaumont, of Normandy." Vivian, in his work on the Devonshire Visitations, supports the descent from Lewis of France, We show the descent from the house of Brienne that is reported by BP1934 and GenEU, noting that the Lewis (Louis) mentioned by BE1883 married Agnes de Beaumont, sister of the last Viscount Beaumont and heiress of Beaumont-au-Maine. According to GenEU, the only Lewis (Louis) son of Charles, Count of Anjou, died in infancy.
