Benoite). Chief of the armies of Richilde de Hainaut, it is killed with Cassel the 2/22/1070 battles against Robert the Clippings of it.
Anselme II , his/her son and successor, says Barbatus , is says also " of Vermandois" because it acts in the county of Vermandois for the account of one of his/her parents, Hugues the Large one, count de Vermandois and brother of the king Philippe I. Anselme II is the founder of the Abbaye of Nicolas of Close, become the beautiful small current castle.

(true charter " manipulée" by the genenalogist Jean Carpentier, like of Alaon a little later) just like the forgery " was to it also that; Order of Licorne" invented between the XVII & XVIIIé S. corrections will be proven by E.A. Escallier in 1852 Once the crusaders in Anatolia, Alexis Comnène, Greek emperor, having played double game with Turkish, Anselme II is sent to him as ambassador, proof of high regard and confidence of Godefroid. He writes then two letters with the Manassé bishop of Rheims to inform it of the franque projection and the allied losses, the first of Nicée, the second of Antioche. Encircled by Turkish in this last city, it will make there the first a memorable exit of a rare audacity which will release one moment the francs, enabling them to spread and beat the enemy. It is killed the 26/2/1099 with the seat of Archas (Such Arqa).

It will have two wire: the first, Jean, die in 1202 (buried with Denain, church of the Chanoinesses Ladies), the second will be Etienne de Denain and will have, by marrying Pink of Mons, a posterity which will take again the seigniory of Hainin, small village close to Mons . This one will make stock by taking the name of Haynin , always represented in XXIè century (under the orthographies of Haynin in France and of Hennin in Belgium: currently the elder branch is that of Hennin de Boussu Walcourt and the two juniors by Haynin de Bry and of Haynin d' Aire ).
