Property documents, family titles and brief genealogies, correspondence, army documents, financial documents, property seizure
under the revolution, restitution, etc. The 16th and 17th century documents nearly all relate to the Lesueur de Colleville
and related families, and the 18th and 19th century documents to the five Isaac Dumonts and the two Samuel-Gabriel Dumonts.
The collection comes from Isaac Antoine Auguste Dumont de Bostaquet, marquis de Lamberville, colonel d'Etat-major, decorated
with the Ordre du Mérite militaire (the "Saint-Louis des protestants"), who died at Meudon en 1847. An émigré, he returned
to Normandy to serve in the chouanne army of Frotté, who was his nephew, son of M. de Frotté, père, who married as his second
wife Mlle Dumont de Bostaquet, the sister of the marquis de Lamberville. He lived in Rouen, and on his lands at La Fontelaye,
Bostaquet, and Lamberville, and finally at the château de Beauregard, near Meudon. Although Huguenots, the Dumont de Bostaquet
always remained faithful to the monarchy of the Bourbons [From dealer's description].
