Son of Aubri/Alberic II, Count de Dammartin and Mahaut de Clermont, married before September 1208 Simon married Marie, Countess de Ponthieu, and they had at least two sons and five daughters.
Their sons were mentioned in 1221 when Marie made her peace with Philippe II, king of France. In 1225 Simon reconciled with the king, but by then the two sons had died; in his act of submission to Philippe it is clear that by 1225 his eldest daughter Jeanne was the heir to Ponthieu. Simon promised Philippe that he would not marry either of his eldest two daughters without the approval of the king of France.
His daughter Mathilde died from the plague in 1237 and in that year Simon and his wife Marie endowed prayers for Mathilde's soul by donating to the abbey of Epagne 4000 herrings from the bailiwick of Rue and 5000 from that of Moreaucourt. Simon died 21 September 1239, and Marie married Mathieu de Montmorency between September 1240 and 15 December 1241.
