Boniface had several daughters and sons by his first wife Alice, the daughter of Peter of Savoy, and his second wife Agnes, daughter of Prince Hugh de Capet of France, Count of Vermandois.
Two of his daughters married Roger I of Sicily's sons from previous relationships, Jordan, Count of Syracuse, and Geoffrey, Count of Ragusa (who may have died before the marriage actually took place). Boniface's sons founded the lines of the rulers of Saluzzo (his eldest son being Manfred I of Saluzzo, Busca, Lancia, Ceva, and Savona. His son Henry became a lord in Sicily.
