Jean GUYON - 1592 Baptism


"JEAN GUYON WAS BAPTIZED AT SAINT-AUBIN DE TOUROUVRE ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1592, A CENTURY AFTER THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA. HIS GODFATHERS WERE JEAN COLLIN AND PIERRE DOLINET AND HIS GODMOTHER CATHERINE GODDIN. JEAN GREW UP AT TOUROUVRE, ATTENDED SCHOOL, LEARNED A TRADE AND PREPARED THE FOUNDATION FOR HIS HOME. ON MAY 18, 1614, AT THE AGE OF 22, HE LENT TO PANTALEON BIGOT, A LABORER AT AUTHEUIL, A SMALL VILLAGE TO THE SOUTHEAST OF TOUROUVRE (THE SMALL VILLAGE OF ROBERT GIFFARD), AN AMOUNT CONSISTING OF "A SMALL PISTOLET D'OR, FIFTY-TWO SOLS IN COINS, QUARTS D'ECUS AND OTHER MONNAIE BLANCHE", VALUED AT 84 LIVRES. IT WOULD SEEM THAT THIS TRADE AS A MASON ALREADY ALLOWED HIM TO HAVE SOME SAVINGS."
