Hamelin d' ANJOU (Plantagenet) 5th Earl of Surrey [Parents]-A2902 # was born in 1130 in Normandy, France. He died on 07 May 1202 in Lewes, Sussex. He was buried in Chapter House, Lewes Priory, Sussex. Hamelin married Isabella de WARENNE Countess of Surrey-W2901 # in Apr 1164 in Warenne, Sussex.

Hamelin of Anjou was an English nobleman who was prominent at the courts of the Angevin kings of England, Henry II, Richard I, and John. He was an illegitimate son of Geoffrey of Anjou, and thus a half-brother of King Henry II, and an uncle of Richard the Lionheart and King John. His half-brother Henry gave him one of the wealthiest heiresses in England, Isabella de Warenne, in her own right Countess of Surrey. She was the widow of William of Blois. Hamelin and Isabella married in April 1164, and after the marriage he was recognized as Comte de Warenne, that being the customary designation for what more technically should be Earl of Surrey. In consequence of the marriage Hamelin took the de Warenne toponymic, as did his descendants.

Warenne land in England centered around Conisbrough in Yorkshire, a location in which Hamelin built a powerful castle. He also possessed the third penny of County Surrey and held the castles of Mortemer and Bellencombre in Normandy. Hamelin joined in the denunciations of Thomas Becket in 1164, although after Becket's death he became a great believer in Becket's sainthood, having, the story goes, been cured of blindness by the saint's help. He remained loyal to Henry through all the problems of the later part of the king's reign when many nobles deserted him, and continued as a close supporter of his nephew Richard I. During Richard's absence on the Third Crusade, he took the side of the regent William Longchamp. Hamelin appeared in the 2nd coronation of King Richard in 1194 and at King John's coronation in 1199.

He died in 1202 and was buried at the Chapter House at Lewes Priory, in Sussex. He was succeeded by his son William de Warenne, 6th Earl of Surrey. A daughter, named Adela, was the mistress of her cousin King John of England, and by him the mother of Richard Fitz Roy.

He gained the title of Vicomte de Touraine.
In 1164 he was present at the council of Northampton.
From April 1164, his married name became Hamelin de Warenne and he gained the title of 5th Earl of Surrey, in right of his wife.
In 1173 he supported King Henry II against his sons.
In 1176 he escorted Joan, daughter of King Henry II, for her marriage to the King of Sicily.
In 1193 he was one of the treasurers for the ransom of King Richard I.
In 1200 he was granted a market at Conisborough, Yorkshire.

It is Hamelin who built the stone keep as it appears now at Conisbrough. The castle was visited by Hamelin's nephew King John in March 1202.
