His mother was Eschiva of Ibelin, heiress of that branch of Ibelins who had held Bethsan and Ramleh. Hugh was married September, 1210 at Nicosia to his stepsister Alice of Champagne of Jerusalem (1193/1198 - 1246), daughter of his father's last wife Isabella I of Jerusalem and her previous husband Henry of Champagne, king of Jerusalem.
