Adam de Bâillon, Sieur de Valences, son of Michel de Baillon, Vicomte de Caudebec (Seine-Inférieure AKA Seine-Maritime), a collector of aides and other finances for the King, Seignuer de Louanville, in Beauce, and Jeanne Le Seigneur daughter of Adam, Seigneur d'Espretot. [1][2]

He was a notary and secretary of the King (1504-1507), and registrar in the Parliament of Rouen. A registrar is an officer charged with giving authenticity to the acts of a judge to help him in the exercise of his functions. Parliament refers to a supreme provincial court of justice, not a legislative body [2][1]. He was also sent on diplomatic missions to England [3]

Adam first married Phillipe Vaultier, widow of Sieur de Javillac. They had 10 children:

  1. Adam Baillon
  2. Jean Baillon, the elder, Seigneur d'Olinville, de Brières in part, de Janvry, de Marivaux, and de Juvilliers. He married 1. Valentine Leclerc and 2. Marie de Hacqueville. He was the ancestor of the Baillon family of Louans and of Janvris. [2]
  3. Jean Baillon, the younger
  4. Radegonde de Baillon, who married Nicolas de Beauclerc [4]

Adam's second marriage was to Jeanne Leclerc, widow of Jean Bataille. They had 1 child.

  1. Marie de Baillon. She married Louis de Lyon, Seigneur de la Maillardière, a lawyer in the Court of the Parliament. [2]

On 26 June 1551 Jeanne Le Clerc, who was then the widow of Jean Bataille (whom she had married after Adam's death) renounced in favor of Jean Baillon and Marie Baillon her rights to a house in Paris[2]. Therefore Adam died long before 1551.


Adam de Baillon, seigneur de Valence, était le fils de Michel de Baillon et Jeanne Le Seigneur[1].Greffier au Parlement de Rouen (12 novembre 1512), résigna en février 1515[1].

Il épousa en premières noces Philippe Vaultier[1][2], dont il eut dix enfants parmi lesquels:

  1. Jean, seigneur d'Olinville, collecteur des tailles de l'élection de Paris, Il épousa en premières noces Valentine Leclerc, sœur du gouverneur de Chartres, et en secondes noces (avant 1561) Marie de Hacqueville
  2. Adam, sieur de Valence.

Il se remaria avec Jeanne Le Clerc[1][2], dont une fille:

  1. Marie, mariée à Louis de Lyon, seigneur de la Maillardière[2].

Le 26 juin 1551 Jeanne Le Clerc, alors veuve de Jean Bataille qu'elle avait épousé après la mort d'Adam, renonça en faveur de Jean Baillon et Marie Baillon à ses droits sur une maison située à Paris[2].

De Baillon Sieur de Valence-2 and Baillon-12 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents, same wife, same child. (The duplicate mothers had different family names, but this issue has been resolved).
