'...Jeanne became ill and on 14 January 1670, Romain Becquet drew up her last will and testament. She must have died a short time later, since on the following 8 September, at the home of the same notary, Thomas contracted to marry a 'daughter of the King,' one Marthe Raudy, born at Saint-Gervais in Paris and daughter of Nicolas and the late Anne Bobel... According to Silvio Dumas, this contract was not carried out and we find no trace of Marthe after 1670.'
