He m. Elizabeth Aglae DU BOURG. His marriage was also one “de convenance,” and was brought about in this way, l'Abbe William DU BOURG, who had fled from Paris during the Reign of Terror, came on a visit to Louisiana, and forming a warm friendship for Mr. Marius BRINGIER, of “White Hall,” proposed an alliance between their respective families.

A niece of the Abbe then in a convent in Baltimore, became as a consequence contracted to Michel Douradou BRINGIER, younger son of Mr. Marius BRINGIER. She was a dau. of Pierre Francois DU BOURG, Sieur de Ste. Colombe, Chevalier de St. Louis, a brother of the Abbe.

Her family were emigrés from France and San Domingo; having lost estates in both places by republican confiscation in the former country, and by negro devastation in the [p.116] latter. Young Douradou BRINGIER proceeded to Baltimore.

His fiancée (whom he had never seen except when, as a child, she had temporarily sojourned in New Orleans on her way from the West Indies to Baltimore) was brought out of the convent. She had reached the mature age of fourteen years. They were forthwith married by the abbé, the bride's uncle and god-father, Louis, surnamed “Le Beau DU BOURG” giving her away. Her miniature painted at the time shows a young maid of gentle face and great loveliness.

As a marriage present, the “Hermitage” plantation, in Ascension Parish, was bestowed upon the young couple. The marriage in Baltimore took place on the 17th June, 1812. This was the year that war broke out between England and America, and we find a few years later, the young husband acting as a volunteer aid to General JACKSON on the field at Chalmette.
