Notes: With the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, on October 18, 1685, the situation had become almost unbearable
for Protestants. Pierre, whose wife Marie apparently had passed away, left La Rochelle for his religious belief
and took with him his 8 year old son Pierre. It is probable that he went to London, where he may have joined
his brother-in-law, Plessis. In 1689 he is recorded as a member of the Wallon Church in Amsterdam. After the death of his first wife
Marie Morin, he married again, his second wife being Marie Nallean. He must have been able to save his
fortune or a good part thereof from the prosecution and confiscation in France because he was able to
establish himself again as merchant in Amsterdam.
