A curse on Yahoo :-)
Have you considered Yahoo may only refer to still existing buildings?
Within the last week or so it has been quoted from the Complete Peerage,
Volume XII/1 Page 39 in a footnote :
The name Beaufort (for John of Gaunts children by Katherine Roet)
came (Walsingham, 'Ypodigma' Rolls Ser.,p.374) from their father's
castle in Champagne, which devolved on him through his 1st wife,
Blanche of Lancaster, who descended etc.
Are there two Chateaus de Beaufort? Has the border between Anjou and
Champagne been changed (doubt it)?
