Agnes was born in c1080 to Guy (Wido) I, Count Of Ponthieu. Her mother is unknown. In 1100, following the death of her brothers Enguerrand and Hugh, Agnes became heiress to Guy upon his death.
She was married (arranged by William the Conqueror) before 1087 to Robert De Bellême, 3rdEarl of Shrewsbury. He treated her badly, imprisoning her at Bellême Castle. She eventually escaped. 
Her husband was imprisoned in 1112, by Henry I Beauchamp. Agnes by this time had died, so her son by Robert, William III Talvas succeeded her.
