About Dauphine de Rémusat, Dame de Saint-Ferreol
Aubert (1765) begins his genealogy of the Péllissier family with Rodolphe, living in 1400, married to Alasie du Teste (no children). On 22 Oct 1407, he contracted marriage in Saint-Ferreol with Dauphine de Remusat (Remusato), daughter of Francois, Seigneur de Terrandol and part of Saint-Ferreol, and Catherine de Bellon (Belloni), Dame du Pegue, widow of Amedee de Montchenu (Moneycheni).... Bertrand de Pellissier is named brother of Rodolphe in the marriage contract.
The houses of Remusat and Bellon were the most ancient houses in the Dauphiny. The Remusat line ended with the death of the children of Jean, son of Francois, and the honor was passed in a transaction 8 June 1446 between Beatrix d'Aspres (widow of Jean de Remusat) ... and Etienne de Pellissier, son of Rodolphe and Dauphine. It was reported in this transaction that the Chateau de Saint-Ferreol had been taken and sacked by the gendarmes of the Vicomte de Turenne.... On 14 July 1420, Catherine de Bellon left inter vivos to Dauphine all her goods, services and rights in Eyrolles and Valouse, in the presence of Dalmas d'Urre, co-seigneur of Valouse, Pons & Saint-Ferreol, and other gentlemen.
28 Dec 1425 Dauphine de Remusat procured to Jean d'Urre (sr de Mollan, Aynard de Renard) & Etienne de Pellissier, her son, to take noble hommage of these fiefs.
21 August 1428, the hommage of the land and seigneurie of Saint-Ferreol was taken by Jean d'Urre, seigneur de Mollan to Monsignor Jean de Poitiers, Bishop of Dye and Valence
6 March 1429, Jean de Lattier, Chatelain de Bordeaux and all of the Valley, as procurer of Monsignor Jean de Poitiers, Haute-Seigneur de lieu de Saint-Ferreol, gave investiture to nobles Rodolphe and Ferreol de Pellisser, father and son, of many seigneurial right and privileges, that they had acquired at an auction of the goods of noble Allamande, widow of noble Gouer Porreti in the place of Saint Ferreol 3 March 1428.
Rodolphe & Dauphine had two sons and daughters:
- Ferreol (of whom no more is known)
- Dulcie, who married Sr Rasmad-Dalmas but made a renunciation, through the dowry that had been constituted for her, of paternal and maternal rights, in favor of her older brother Etienne, through an act passed at Chateau de Saint-Ferreol on 16 Aug 1431 in the presence of their parents and other noble witnesses.
- Sibille, married on 29 Jan 1435 Honore d'Arnaud, and the same day, in the contentment of her husband, renounced her sister in favor of her brothers Etienne and Ferreol. Her husband released her dowry on 18 Oct 1440 to her brother Etienne, stipulating it was for Rodolphe their father.

The Dauphiné (also called Dauphiny in ancient English) was an independent state from 1040 to 1349, under the rule of the Counts of Albon, before joining the Kingdom of France. As a French province, it maintained its autonomy until 1457.)
