They branched to the west at Bottelière in Brittany (French: Bretagne), and to the east to Artois where they held a family seat in Bellenglise, to St.-Rémy in Champagne where they were elevated to the Counts du Hamel. They also branched to Holland at Arnhem and Bois-le-duc. At Désert in Normandy they were elevated to the nobility in 1598.
