About Jehan Manigault

Jehan Manigault was born c.1539 in La Rochelle, France, and died in 1569 in La Rochelle, France. He married Louise de Foix.

A tradesman and Bourgeois, his house in La Rochelle was one where Protestants met secretly, c.1558-1567 to avoid arrest during the Catholic Church and Government ban on religious freedom.

The ancient family home in "Limouillet" still stands north of La Rochelle in Charente-Maritime Province. In 1674, Henriette's elder sister, Marie, sold "Limouillet" to a "Brunet", who later sold, or in some manner passed it on to the family "Pozzi". They retained possession of it to about June, 1967 when they were forced by poverty to sell the house to a young couple named Phelipon. Marie (Mrs.) Phelipon was a Clemanceau and the great granddaughter of the famous French statesman of the World War of 1914-1918. The Pozzi family retained a small apartment in the estate for the term of their lives.
