Château Clément-Pichon: The Barons de Parempuyre

Thus the Pichon family split into two. While Bernard’s other son Jacques busied himself at Château Pichon-Baron, François and his descendants became more and more associated with Château de Parempuyre. He and his wife Benoîte had one son, Jacques-François de Pichon-Longueville (born 1675), who was a conseiller in the Bordeaux parliament (most of these Pichons held some influential position). Jacques married Marie du Roy on April 30th 1709, and she bore him two daughters and a son. The latter was François Joseph de Pichon-Longueville (born 1710), Baron de Parempuyre, Seigneur d’Arsac, who married Marie de Joguet (who was, to my eternal disappointment, no relation to Charles Joguet, not as far as I know, anyway).

Château Clément-Pichon

The couple had a son, Guillaume Ignace de Pichon-Longueville (1748 – 1815), and it was he who therefore inherited the Parempuyre title. He was fortunate in that he was unharmed during the Revolution, and although his standing was damaged, and his noble titles now meant nothing, he maintained hold of the château at Parempuyre. He married Marthe Hélène Sophie de Queux on September 18th 1800, and they had five children. By now the gallows and guillotine were more distant memories, and the monarchy had been restored. The eldest of the five, Charles, felt comfortable taking a title again; he became the first Baron de Pichon-Parempuyre.
