Extract from “Les Dossiers Secrets d’Henri Lobineau” (1967) giving the falsehood that Hugues de Payen married Catherine Saint-Clair (copied on countless websites)

Hugues de Payen married Emeline de Touillon by 1090 and between 1107-1114 had married Elisabeth de Chappes (Thierry P. F. Leroy, Hugues de Payns: La Naissance des Templiers, pages 115-119, 2011)
