bullet  Notes:

The younger of two sons, Michael was apprenticed on his 14th birthday to silversmith Peter Pare (Parry?), a relative of his mother in St Giles Middlesex. When out of time he set up his business in Seven Dials. He had two surviving sons with his wife Louisa Turquand (qv), and eight other children who died in infancy and were buried at Marylebone and St Giles. He and his wife were strict attendants at the Tottenham Court Chapel.

Michael and Louisa's surviving sons were Michael (qv), a silk mercer, and James, who became Chief Clerk at the Customs House in 1763 and Warehouse Keeper in 1793. James was the author of the notes on the Compigne family in the Library of the Huguenot Society in London. Prior to his marriage to Mary Gribble in 1788 James lived with his parents in Fleet Street, then with his brother Michael in Holborn. He campaigned against slavery, and was on the committee of the Church Missionary Society. He did not have any surviving children with his wife Mary, and left most of his substantial estate, after bequests to various charities, to his brother's children.
