  • Notes 
    • Presumed to be the "Pierre Lagrange" "D'Auvergne" who appears as a baptism sponsor at Blamont (under French occupation since 1697) on Feb 27, 1701 for Pierre Marechal, son of Etienne Marechal of Meslières, and Claude Sandoz. Parents both Lutherans seemingly become Catholics (see Lutheran parish registers of Glay for Etienne and Claude; previous children born to the couple were baptized at the Catholic church in Montbeliard town)


      The father of Anne Leveque's two daughters Sara and Madeleine, baptized at the Lutheran church at Clairegoutte (Seigneurie d'Etobon, Montbéliard). His name is omitted from the register entries for both baptisms. His identity is only alluded to in the consistorial causes as a Roman Catholic foreigner - See notes for Anne Leveque.

      Pierre Grange, while living at the Belverne (Seigneurie of Etobon, Montbeliard) mill, appears as a witness in a notarial record of Lomont (this is adjacent to the seigneurie of Etobon, in the Franche-Comté) recording a sale from Jean Gauthier to Thiebaud Morel, dated May 17, 1705 (The notary was Thiébaud Rollet)

      Pierre Grange, "ex auvergnia," is named as the father of Jean Baptiste Grange, born out of wedlock to "heretic" Anne L'Evesque of Frederic-Fontaine and baptized at the Catholic church at Lyoffans July 1, 1706. Pierre was living in Belverne "amongst the heretics" at the time of the baptism. He was from the diocese of Clermont, parish of Saint-Romain de Val[ancher] [tight binding] (See Lyoffans parish registers 1705-1792 on FHL Film # 1,115,259) This is Saint-Romain de Valenchères.

      The parish registers of Saint-Romain are viewable via the Puy-de-Dome departmental archives website (http://www.archivesdepartementales.puydedome.com/), however, most of the 17th Century register is unavailable. Pierre Grange (the Auvergnat in Montbeliard) was a married man from Les Gouttes Saint Romain (according to Saulnot parish registers), and speculatively, was the same Pierre Grange of Les Gouttes who was the son of Andre Grange, and who was married a woman named Anthoinette Faidix (name variously spelled) in 1689 (assuming Pierre was in his early twenties at marriage); André Grange, a son of Pierre and Antoinette, was baptized at Saint Romain on 27 April 1693. Antoinette died in Saint Romain in 1726.

      There was a Pierre Grange born around 1708 who lived in Champey, Montbéliard, and was the spouse of Marguerite Lods. Pierre Grange was married to Marguerite Lods at Tremoins, Montbéliard (Lutheran) in 1734, the couple used the Lutheran church at Champey to baptize their children, and Pierre was buried at Champey (Lutheran) "age 71" in 1779. Although Anne Levesque had a Peny cousin in Champey (Sara Peny) who was her father's goddaughter, it is more likely that Pierre Grange of Champey was Pierre Grange of Auvergne's child from another relationship. A Francoise Pacoton or Paccoton, from Switzerland, had a child out of wedlock named Pierre baptized at Tremoins (Lutheran) on January 9, 1707. The father is not named on the register. Pierre Lods was the godfather. Francoise Paccoton died and was buried at Etobon in 1742, as the wife of Jacques Gisclon (he died at Etobon 1735).


      Pierre Grange died in 1722 at his girlfriend Sybille Valley's house in Champey (after, according to her testimony, receiving Extreme Unction) and was buried in Saulnot.

      Pierre Grange is named in the parish register of Etobon, as the bride's late father in the marriage record of Sara Grange to Jean George Bouteiller.
