He was born to Roman parents, Gaudentius and Austadiola, at Eposium (present Carignan). Tradition states that the bishop of Trier, Magneric, was so impressed with the piety of the young Gaugericus that he had the young man ordained. Gaugericus filled the see of Cambrai-Arras around 585 at the consent of Childebert II.
Gaugericus was consecrated by Egidius, bishop of Reims. He devoted himself to fighting paganism, ransoming captives and visiting rural districts. He paid his respects to King Chlothar II, the new lord of Cambrai after the death of Childebert, and assisted at the Council of Paris in 614. He was buried in the church of Saint Médard, which he had founded at Cambrai.
