The Rougemont-Rosemont Link

I found a genealogy that cautiously links the Rougemont with the Rosemont of Bois-De-Luc. With Lehamn Rosamond’s little book, this link can be made. When the Habsburgs came to rule Rougemont, they spelled in Roozmont. Roosmont in another spelling for Rosemont/Roesmont.

“As a WEAPON this conducts line Roesmont: on a golden field a climbing wolf of sabel.”

The Roelof name is Rudolph and Rollo, meaning “famous wolf”. The Roesmont cote of arms is a wolf with the words Bois-D-Luc underneath, which means “Duke of the Woods”. Wolf House belonged to Herny 1 Duke of Bradant, the son of Mary of Champage who was the patron of Chreiten de Troyes who authored Arthurian Legends.

Ghisburtus van Roesmont was a Dutch nobleman of some importance. His
mother was jonkvrouw Adriana Theodorici ROVER. the daughter of Dirk
Edmondszn ROOVER. The Roover family appears to descend from one of
the Radbot rulers of Holland who was given the name Roover, or Rover
due to conquest of the Netherlands. The Roover family would build
Montroort castle one of the most prestigious castles in Holland.
These two families were keen on forming a marriage alliance as Arnold
Rover married Heilwigis Arnoldi Danielis ROESMONT. For this reason I
suspect the Roesmont Wolf names came from Roelof the Roover.

Rollo (English), Rolph (English and Scandinavian), Rolphe, Roul, and Röfe (German) are variants of Rolf. Roffe(Scandinavian diminutive form) and Rolfe(English and Scandinavian spelling variant) are other forms of the name.
Rolf is an uncommon baby name for boys. At the modest height of its usage in 1934, 0.005% of baby boys were named Rolf. It ranked at #876 then. The baby name has since slipped in popularity, and is today of very light use. In 2010, within the group of boy names directly related to Rolf, Ralph was the most popular.
Baby names that sound like Rolf include Ralf (English, German, Hungarian, and Scandinavian), Ralph (English and German), Rolfe (English and Scandinavian), Rolph (English and Scandinavian), Roelof (Dutch), Rolphe, and Ralphie (English).

A small book titled History of the Rosemond Family by Leland
Eugene Rosemond indicates that the Sergeant probably came from somewhere
along the Swiss-French border.

This same book gives Sergeant James Rosemonds earliest ancestor as Erhart
de Rougement. I am told that the correct pronunciation of this name makes
the ouge sound like a slurred s, and the ending t is pronounced like
a d. Because of this his sons name was recorded as Hans Rosemond. Erhart
de Rougemont was supposedly born sometime before 1495, and owned a house,
which is referred to as the house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the
Freistrasse. The book mentions that research by Peter Rosemond of Holland
shows a record that indicates that prior to living in Basle, the family
resided in Holland up to 1338, and they descended from a state Rosemont
near Belfort in France, where there is a nearby village called Rougemont.

Erharts son, Hans Rosemond, became a citizen of Basle in 1534 and there
is a coat of arms registered in Basle about the same time. The book has
a picture of this coat of arms, and I have a beautiful color picture of
it I received from a descendant of the Irish Rosamond family, Mary Jane
Loya, posted on my web page at

Hans Rosemond had a son Fred Rosemond who was born about 1552. Fred Rosemond
was a weaver, a member of the town council and a Captain in the local militia.
Fred Rosemond had a son he apparently named after his father, Hans Rosemond,
b. abt 1581. This Hans Rosemond, like his father, was a weaver. You will
note if you go to my web site and look at the coat of arms, that the key
feature of the shield is a large weavers hook.

This Hans Rosemond had a son, Hans Ulrich Rosemond b. abt 1623 d, abt 1679
in Basle, Switzerland. Hans Ulrich Rosemond was the father of the Sergeant
James Rosemond mentioned at the beginning of all this. Continuing on with
the tale of Sgt. Rosemond, he first stopped in Holland where he became
a drill sergeant in the army of William of Orange, soon to become William
III, king of England. He returned to England with Williams army, and shortly
thereafter accompanied the army to Ireland where he fought in the Battle
of the Boyne. Following the battle, it is said that he was offered an entire
township as his reward for meritorious service but declined. Instead he
settled in County Leitrim, Ireland around the end of the 1600s. He is said
to have had at least three sons. Two of these, John and Nathaniel, are
said to have come to the US. The third son, whose given name we are not
sure of, stayed in Ireland and was apparently the founding father of the
Roseman/Rosemond/Rosamond family in Ireland.

This article is an outline concerning a commune of Doubs.

Rougemont is located at the border between Doubs and the Haute-Saône. It is locally located in the territory of Ognon, tributary of Doubs. The city nearest is Balsam-the-Ladies. The village of Rougemont borders the river of Drigeon whose source comes from the Rocks of Nans.

History[to modify]
The first traces of human activity were updated at the time of excavations in the surroundings. It is about a prehistoric site of Gondenans-the-Mills. Gallo-Roman burials or mérovingiennes were discovered in the city [1]. The history of Rougemont is marked by the construction of a castle of which there does not remain any ruin today. Thereafter, a citadel is drawn up on the hill to the XVI E century. It had a central keep, and four square turns of angle, and was surrounded by a ditch [2]. The vault seigneuriale had the place of the current church. In 1439, Philibert de Mollans founds in this village the brotherhood of Saint-Georges. In 1450, fault of having a male descendant, the family of Rougemont disappeared, and the grounds changed several times of hands. Rougemont was also a religious place thanks to the convent of the cordeliers. The castle was demolished, because uninhabited and not maintained, in 1809 [3]. By the fault of a quasi non-existent industrialization, Rougemont remained an agricultural borough, and thus could not grow.

As dukes of Brabant, the dynasty of Louvain is well known. It is not
so well recognized that this was the surviving agnatic line of the
Reginars, who held the duchy of Lower Lorraine from the late ninth
century until 939. Whether the first dukes of Brabant were aware of
their early lineage can be debated. Their claim to ducal office
arrived more obviously through wives of eleventh-century counts of
Louvain: Lambert I’s wife Gerberge, a daughter of Duke Charles; and
Lambert II’s wife Oda, a daughter of Duke Gozelo. It is worth noting
that Lambert I († 1015) had the daughter Mathilde, who married
Eustace I of Boulogne. Their grandson was Godfrey of Bouillon, duke
of Lower Lorraine, and Godfrey’s mother was a sister of Lambert II’s
wife. Thus Godfrey of Bouillon and his successor Godfrey of Louvain
were second cousins twice over, and their sources of right were

The men of the Mark choose two War Dukes to lead them against their enemies, one each from the House of the Wolfings and the House of the Laxings. The Wolfing war leader is Thiodolf, a man of mysterious and perhaps divine antecedents whose ability to lead is threatened by his possession of a magnificent dwarf-made mail-shirt which, unknown to him, is cursed. He is supported by his lover the Wood Sun and their daughter the Hall Sun, who are related to the gods.

A Tale of the House of the Wolfings and All the Kindreds of the Mark is a fantasy novel by William Morris, perhaps the first modern fantasy writer to unite an imaginary world with the element of the supernatural, and thus the precursor of much of present-day fantasy literature.
In such wise that Folk had made an island amidst of the Mirkwood, and established a home there, and upheld it with manifold toil too long to tell of. And from the beginning this clearing in the wood they called the Mid-mark: for you shall know that men might journey up and down the Mirkwood-water, and half a day’s ride up or down they would come on another clearing or island in the woods, and these were the Upper-mark and the Nether-mark: and all these three were inhabited by men of one folk and one kindred, which was called the Mark-men, though of many branches was that stem of folk, who bore divers signs in battle and at the council whereby they might be known.
So they cut down the trees, and burned their stumps that the grass might grow sweet for their kine and sheep and horses; and they diked the river where need was all through the plain, and far up into the wild-wood to bridle the winter floods: and they made them boats to ferry them over, and to float down stream and track up-stream

Rudolph or Rudolf (French: Rodolphe, Italian and Spanish: Rodolfo) or Rodolphe is a male first name, and, less commonly, a surname. It is a Germanic name deriving from 2 stems. One being “Rod” or “Hrôdh”, meaning “fame”, and “olf” meaning “wolf

The city’s official name is a contraction of the Dutch des Hertogen bosch—”the Duke’s forest”. The duke in question was Henry I, Duke of Brabant, whose family had owned a large estate at nearby Orthen for at least four centuries. He founded a new town located on some forested dunes in the middle of a marsh. At age 26, he granted ‘s-Hertogenbosch city rightsand the corresponding trade privileges in 1185. This is, however, the traditional date given by later chroniclers; the first mention in contemporaneous sources is 1196. The original charterhas been lost. His reason for founding the city was to protect his own interests against encroachment from Gelre and Holland; from its first days, he conceived of the city as fortress. It was destroyed in 1203 in a joint expedition of Gelre and Holland, but was soon rebuilt. Some remnants of the original city walls may still be seen. In the late 15th century, a much larger wall was erected to protect the greatly expanded settled area. Artificial waterways were dug to serve as a city moat, through which the rivers Dommel and Aa were diverted.

Until 1520, the city flourished, becoming the second largest population centre in the territory of the present Netherlands, after Utrecht. The birthplace and home of one of the greatest painters of the northern Renaissance, Hieronymus Bosch, the city was also a center of music, and composers, such as Jheronimus Clibano, received their training at its cathedrals. Others held positions there: Matthaeus Pipelarewas musical director at the Confraternity of Our Lady; and renowned Habsburg copyist and composer Pierre Alamire did much of his work at ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
