Antoine Chabot, Sieur de la Fons, was a valet of the King's Chamber and a member of the Chabot de Souville lineage. The arms of the Chabot de Souville family are described as <<D'Azur, à une Etoile d'Or chargée d'une Tour de Gueules>>.
Jetté et. al. note that there exist three copies of the marriage contract between Antoine Chabot and Catherine Lombart. All three agree that the contract was drawn up in late March 1554 (dated March 31 in one source, the other two dated March 30). However, only one of the copies lists Antoine's parents as Jean Chabot, seigneur de Tourrettes, and Louise de Berre. Further, Jean's will, dated 4 December 1555, mentions a presumed brother of Antoine named Pierre, but does not mention Antoine himself.
The discrepancies lead the authors to seek alternative evidence confirming the existence of the relationships in question. Conveniently, both brothers were Knights of the Order of Malta, and their lineages were preserved in the Preuves de Malte as follows:

According to Jetté et. al., Antoine is believed to have died between 12 October 1571 and 14 March 1599. The former date is the date of division of the estate of his father-in-law, Antoine Lombart, and the latter being the date of his daughter Suzanne's marriage contract.
