Abraham TROSSEL       (ID #I5504)

(male)
Family 1 : Marie FAURE (dates unknown)
  1. +Jeanne TROSSEL (b. 2 JAN 1671, d. 21 JAN 1728)

He appears with his daughter Jeanne as witnesses to a baptism in Lausanne in 1689. He is mentioned a number of times in various records of this period, but few significant details of his life or origins have been discovered yet. The earliest mention yet found is 1669, as Troissel. Another spelling (1671) is Troçet. He is mentioned several times in the registers of Felix Saudan, notary at Lausanne, at least once as "de Grand Vaux". It is possible he belongs to the Trosset family, bourgeois of Yverdon.

That he is the father-in-law of the Grand Voyer Antoine Dutoit is proved by a document of Jean Estienne des Tallents, notary at Lausanne, dated 09 apr 1709, in which "Dutoit the Grand Voyeur", with his wife "Trossel and her father Abraham Trossel" stipulate with Pierre Rouge that the property Pierre has sold to them was not previously mortgaged, and that it is now mortgaged to Their Excellencies of Bern.

Jean TROUILLIER       (ID #I7712)

(male)
Family 1 : Marie LE COURT (dates unknown)
  1.  Marie TROUILLIER (dates unknown)
Family 2 : Marie Anne SALTé (b. ABT 1722, d. 23 NOV 1795)
  1.  Marie Elizabeth TROUILLIER (bp. 3 APR 1757)

  3.  Esther TROUILLIER (b. 15 JAN 1761)

Marriage record at the Hague (transcribed in Leiden Index and in the Mirandolle Collection) identifies him as a widower. There is a further notation in 1774 (source of this extract is given as Actes du Consistoire de l'Eglise Wallonne de Rotterdam, E fol. 246, 05 jun 1774) that members of a Le Court family from Barbézieux requested to know whether Marie Elizabeth, daughter of Jean Trouillier the elder and Marie Le Court were still alive. Since the death record of his widow also calls him "the elder", we suppose that Marie Le Court was indeed his first wife, but we found no record of the daughter Marie. The Consistory appointed someone to investigate, but the reponse of the Consistory to the Le Court family has not been discovered.

A Jean Trouillier, Troulliet, Troulhé, etc. is mentioned (from extracts in the Mirandolle Collection) in the account books and the separate records of assistance to refugees by the same church ("pour legement et nourriture") from June, 1754 until July, 1756. Assistance was also given during the same period for the support of an unnamed daughter of the same man.

Among the baptisms of the children of the second marriage, one of the sponsors in 1761 was a Paul Trouillier, surely a relative, but not mentioned further in the Leiden and Mirandolle indexes. There must also have been a Jean Trouillier "the younger" in Rotterdam.

A Jean Trouillé is found among the galériens in Gaston Tournier's Les Galères de France et les galériens protestants des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles (1943-1949, reprinted 1984, Presses du Languedoc; see vol. 3 p. 254). While most of the accounts of those condemned to the galères give significant details, this one fails to give his age, and there is no information after his condemnation:

Trouillé, Jean. De la Fragnée, près de la Martinière, non loin de Melle (Deux-Sèvres), prédicant en Poitou. Il était établi marchand de boeufs en Saintonge et sous ce couvert circulait beaucoup. En 1749, il est qualifié de chef des réformés dans l'élection de Cognac. A la suite de l'Assemblée du 1er février 1751, près de Melle, il est condamné à vie par l'Intendant de La Rochelle, le 7 mai 1751, fait amende honorable devant la cathédrale de La Rochelle et est flétri au fer chaud (cf. Edm. Hugues, Hist. de la Restauration du Protest., II, 467). Un Jean Trouillé était déjà cité en 1723 comme prêchant depuis 1712.

Was the Jean Trouillé who settled in Rotterdam in 1754 the same man who was condemned for life to the galères at La Rochelle in 1751? Unfortunately, it is not possible to answer this question from the evidence at hand. If the galérien is really the same Jean Trouillé who was already active in 1712, he would be much too old to be the man who married at the Hague in 1756. However, it seems more likely that the preacher of 1723 was not the galérien. It seems extremely unlikely that it would have been possible to elude the authorities for a quarter of a century. Direct evidence of the true origins of Jean Trouillier of Rotterdam might be discovered by a close reading of the church records there.

A partial answer to one important question, the age of the Jean Trouillier who was condemned at La Rochelle, is found in a transcription on the internet of a paper that appeared in part in "Bulletins et Mémoires de la Société Archéologique et Historique de Charente, 1875." The entire manuscript, now at the Archives de Charente, France, has been transcribed for the Histoire Passion web site. Under the title "État des personnes détenues dans les prisons de La Rochelle pour cause des assemblées qui se sont tenues en Saintonge", the document gives a summary of the interogatories of 1749 and other related documents as late as 1752. Among others mentioned, we find Marie Surenne, widow of Paul Trouillier, age 70, and her children Suzanne, age 25, and Jeanne, age 37. Their older brother Pierre Trouillier the elder was denounced in 1752, and Jean Trouillier, livestock merchant, was interrogated 07 may 1751, age 50, and condemned to the galères. The family was living in the parish of Bonneuil. The widow stated that she had been married in the Catholic church.

The Jean Trouillier condemned at La Rochelle was thus born around 1701, but since his age is given in round numbers, it may well be nothing but an estimate. For that matter, there is some chance that his recorded age at death may also be incorrect. It is now clear that the preacher of 1723 was probably not the galérien, but there is as yet no proof that the galérien eventually found his way to Rotterdam.

The manuscript that was supposed to have been published in 1875 is also available on the internet in its final, published form, on Google Books. The corrected citation is L. Meschinet de Richmond, 1876, "Les assemblées des protestants au désert dans l'Election de Cognac, après la révocation de l'édit de Nantes, d'après les Archives de la Charente-Inférieure," Bulletin de la Société archéologique et historique de la Charente 10:343-380. The volume was a report of the activities of the society "for" 1875, but the publication date was 1876. The published version contains significant details not found on the internet transcript on the Histoire Passion web site. Marie Surenne was the widow of Paul Trouillier, of Chémarou, parish of Bonneuil, and had a son Paul as well as sons Pierre and Jean. When the authorities were unable to capture Jean Trouillier in 1749, after several attempts, it was suggested that they should take his brother Paul into custody, in order to induce Jean to show himself. Paul was apparently living with his widowed mother and his sister, and managing the cultivation of the family's considerable estate. If Jean's brother Paul were imprisoned for any length of time, the subdelegate of Cognac and the vicar of Bonneuil thought that Jean would eventually need to go to Bonneuil to see to the family business, and so they could ambush him there.

A statement that seems to settle the question is found in a history of the protestant churches of Charente by Georges Frédéric Goguel (Histoire et statistique des églises réformées ou protestantes du département de la Charente, depuis leur origine jusqu'à nos jours, 1836, Cognac: Dedé & Péronneau). On page 78, we read: "... Jean Trouillier l'aîné, de la commune de Bonneuil qui, à cette époque, lisait des prières et l'Evangile dans les réunions, se vit contraint, pour échapper à une arrestation arbitraire et qui aurait, sans doute, eu les suites les plus fâcheuses pour lui, de quitter sa patrie et d'aller finir ses jours sur une terre étrangère, après avoir perdu toutes ses propriétés. Plus tard, concevant quelque espérance de recouvrement de sa fortune et instruit des dispositions de l'Etat à l'égard des Réformées, il envoya de Rotterdam, en 1785, une procuration à sa famille. Depuis son séjour dans cette ville, il avait fait passer aux siens divers ouvrages propres à les édifier, comme on le voit par une de ses lettres, du 23 Mai 1786, à J. Grondin, auquel il parle d'un ballot de livres qu'il lui a expédié par un gabarier de Jarnac." Now, Goguel's account was published well before Gaston Tournier's, so it is somewhat surprising that Tournier was not able to provide any information about Trouillier's life after 1751. The records of the city of Rotterdam are vast; if this story is true, there should be some evidence of it in the municipal archives.
