Notes 2: My France Royal Generations

According to the Genealogical Collection of the Old Middle-class (A. Delavenne, ED SGAF, 1954), this "Old Bourbonnaise Family (...) deserved several occasions a place in history of her province and the town of Moulins". Family professions and titles: Prosecutor of the King, Advisers of the King, Treasurers of the King, Lieutenants particular, Appointed Third in the States General and the Constituent French National Assembly, Assessors Civil and Criminal, Inspectors of National Forestry Commission, Chevalier of Legion of Honours... Knights. And that is why you see the King's crown and the Knight's armour on the Blason.
