Paul TURQUAND 3
Paul was born in Chatellerault. He is thought to have been the only son, and inherited substantial estates in Poitou from his father. He married Madelaine Martineau (qv) of Chauvigny, and had fours sons. The family was Protestant, and as a result was persecuted following the Revocation of the Treaty of Nantes in 1685. A detailed account of their flight from France is given in the Turquand family history: Paul and Madelaine were separated during their journey to England, but were eventually reunited some three years later in Spitalfields in London. They subsequently returned to France to recover their estates, but failed so returned to London.
