Pierre Meyer in Boucher

Pierre Meyer is another Dauphinois refugee at the Cape whose birthplace remains uncertain. He may have come from the Vaudois valleys, now Italian territory. It is known that the sons of a Pierre Meyer of Pragela (Pragelato), Jean and Francois, became merchants at Gap. Meyers were also present in Niel country at Chateau-Queyras.103 The Cape refugee escaped into Germany to avoid the dragonnades and was perhaps of a higher social class than many of his burgher compatriots in exile. A mercantile background would be in keeping with his subsequent career and marriage into the Savoye family.• M. Boucher.M (1981). French speakers at the Cape: The European Background.
