Amaury I is shown in the FMG. as father to Simon, Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury, who m. bef. 1170, Agnes d'Evreux, daughter of Richard, Comte d'Evreux & his wife Godechildis ...

As mentioned below, Orderic names "Guillaume de Hainaut" as father of Amaury.

He attested charters of Robert I of France iin 1022, 1028, and 1031. He appears to have begun the building of Montfort, which was completed by his son, Simon. He is said to have married Bertrade. His date of death is not known; he left two sons, Simon, his successor, and Mainer. (Ref:

"Possible father: Guillaume de Hainaut. Stated by Orderic Vitalis to have been the father of Amaury I de Montfort, he is otherwise unknown ["Rex Henricus, ..., consultu Amalrici senioris de Monte-Forti, filii Guillelmi Hanoensis, ..." OV vii, 14 (3: 223)]. As noted below (the writer is referring to the ref. mindspring link), he has often been conjectured as a son of the tenth century count Amaury." [1]

The Henry Project website, for Amaury I de Montfort, doesn't name Avernelle as a daughter or even a possible daughter. Probably need more reliable evidence before making the connection.
