Agnes of Ypres was daughter of Anselme, of whom mention is made in the year 1117. He lived in the time of Thierri of Alsace, to whom he was esquire. Anselme had
been invested for the first time Chatelain of Ypres about 1124, and for the second time in 1127. He was present in 1129, with many knights and nobles, among whom were Baudouin and Hugues de Bailleul, at the marriage of Willerme, Avou de Bethune, with Clemence, daughter of Hugues, Chatelain of Cambrai.
He was also present at the making of the treaty in 1142, between the Pope and Thierri of Alsace, by which it was agreed, that in future no fortress or castle should be constructed on the territory of the town of Therouanne. Anselme, then described as esquire to the Count, accompanied him to the Holy Land in the year 1157, followed by 500 men of Ypres, who had taken the cross and wore a uniform of scarlet cloth. The name of his wife has not been discovered.
