Hugh VII the Brown of Lusignan or Hugues II de La Marche (French: 'Hugues le Brun') (1065–1151), Sire de Lusignan, Couhé and Château-Larcher and Count of La Marche, was the son of Hugh VI of Lusignan. He was one of the many notable Crusaders in the Lusignan family. In 1147 he took the Cross and followed King Louis VII of France on the Second Crusade.

Hugh married before 1090 Sarrasine or Saracena de Lezay (1067–1144), whose origins are unknown. She may have been identical to the Saracena who was widow of Robert I, Count of Sanseverino. Their children were:

  • Hugh VIII of Lusignan

    • Simon II de Lusignan (Deux Sèvres, bef. 1180 – 1200), Lord of Lezay, married before 1195. His children:

  • Galeran de Lusignan
  • Ænor or Aénor de Lusignan (b. c. 1130), married before 1144 Geoffrey or Geoffroy V de Thouars (c. 1120 – aft. 1176), Vicomte de Thouars, son of Aimery VI de Thouars, Vicomte de Thouars, and wife Agnes=Mathilde de Poitiers

He is mentioned by troubadour Jaufre Rudel in the envoi of "Quan lo rius de la fontana":

Senes breu de parguamina
Tramet lo vers en cantan
En plana lengua romana,
A'n Ugo Bru per Filhol.
"Without a parchment scroll
I send this poem, singing
in plain Romance language,
to Hugo Brown, through Filhol."
