Pierre Reynaud, the third son of General Louis Reynaud, was born in 1632,and entered the military service of the Duc de Crequy who was appointedmilitary Governor of Paris in 1676. He married Sarah Regnaut of Artois and fathered four children before he and his wife left France forEngland. Pierre (Peter) Reynaud probably went to England between 1685 and1687 with his brothers Louis and Benjamin. His wife Sarah and their children probably joined him in the spring of 1688, having left France bythe normal channels which required emigrants to abjure Protestantism andtake mass as Catholics. Sherman Reno says that Sarah Regnaut had an olderbrother, Michel Regnaut, who apparently preceded Peter and Sarah to england.
