Hugues "le Brun" de Lusignan, so of another Hugues de Lusignan and his first wife Orengardge. His parentage is confirmed indirectly by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Radulfum de Esselduno qui fuit comes Augi" as "Hugo Brunus fratrem natu maiorem," adding that "horum pater Hugo de Lisegnen" had "fratres…Gaufridum, Henricum regem Cypri et Guidonem regem Ierosolimorum" [Chronica Albrici Monachi Trium Fontium 1198, MGH SS XXIII, p. 876]. The Historia Damiatina by Oliverus Scholasticus records the deaths in 1218 at Damieta of "comes de Marcha et comes de Bar et filius eius, frater Guillelmus de Carnoto magister militiæ templi, Herveus de Virsione, Iterius de Tacci, Oliverus filius regis Anglie" [Toulgoët-Treanna, E. de (1884) Histoire de Vierzon et de l'abbaye de Saint-Pierre (Paris), p. 114 footnote 4]
Europäische Stammtafeln names Agathe de Preuilly as the first wife of Hugues de Lasignan [ES III.4 816], but there is no proof that this marriage took place. Hugues had been betrothed to Isabelle d'Angoulême, daughter of Aymar "Taillefer" comté d'Angoulême and his wife Alex de Courtenay, but she later married Hugues's son of the same name. The second wife of Hugues's was Mathilde d'Angoulême, daughter of Vulgrin III comté d'Angoulême & his wife Elisabeth d'Amboise. A charter dated 29 Aug 1233 under which Juhel Archbishop of Tours confirmed an agreement between "Matilda daughter of Vulgrin once count of Angoulême and widow of Hugh once count of La Marche" and "Isabelle queen of England, countess of La Marche and Angoulême", the former abandoning to "Isabelle and her husband Hugh de Lusignan…her rights in the county of Angoulême and her dower rights in the county of La Marche" in return for an annuity [ Painter 'Lusignan and Châtellerault', p. 80, citing Thomas, G. (1934) Cartulaire des comtes de la Marche (Angoulême), pp. 40-3 ].
