[Ref: http://genealogy.euweb.cz/brabant/brabant20.html]

At http://genealogy.euweb.cz/brabant/brabant20.html, Anna is listed as the Vicountess de Furnes.

A reference to the record (above) of Saint Idesbald indicates that in 1149, he became a regional Alderman with Veurne (Furnes). Whilst not linked, yet, strongly indicative of a long term association with the region and of the family’s existence.

At http://worldroots.com/brigitte/famous/m/marcofhungarydesc01.htm, Anne is listed as Dame de Leeuwerghem.

This site actually traces descendants of Marc of Hungary
