Louis Henri François de Colbert

+4 votes
I'm trying to attach the parents of Louis Henri François de Colbert. I know what their names are but I'm having a hard time finding the necessary documents to fully source the connection.

Also, have had no luck with his marriage record. He was married on 30 Dec 1770, Paris to Jeanne David(David-2420).

If anyone is willing to take a look I would really appreciate it.

The family is covered by Jean-Baptiste-Pierre Jullien de Courcelles in Histoire Généalogique et Héraldique des Pairs de France (admittedly not the best source, but it can be useful to corroborate):


He has the marriage taking place in December 1771.

The marriage is also in Chastellux's "Notes prises aux archives de l'état-civil de Paris" (before the fire), and he has the marriage taking place on January 7, 1771:


If the marriage is not in the index of reconstituted records (available from the Paris archives website at http://archives.paris.fr/s/5/etat-civil-reconstitue/? ) then the record is probably completely lost and we have to rely on a secondary source like Chastellux.

Thank you Isabelle!

The tree I was following stated Dec 1770. It was going well until I reached this point. I'll look for the record once I get back to the computer.
