Oui il y a beaucoup d'erreurs/confusions je m'en occupe.

reussi la correction dans l interface administration , mais je dois corriger chaque page des français qui ont un honneur , une par une !!
par contre il semble avoir des confusions pour la période 1744 à 1746 entre les 2 frères sur différents


Posted by Benoît de Perier on Sunday 6th of February 2022 16:43

Je corrige mes propos : il n'était pas commandeur mais Grand-Croix de Saint Louis.

Bonjour Régis,

En effet le nom de Salvert ne fut porté que par son frère cadet Antoine Alexis de Perier de Salvert (1691-1757), Noble Dunkerquois, corsaire, chef d’escadre des armées navales, cartographe, commissaire général de l’artillerie de Marine, directeur du Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine et commandeur de l'ordre royal et militaire de Saint-Louis.

Cependant le titre de Chevalier est incorrect car M. de Perier était titulaire d'un grade bien supérieru au sein de cet ordre, puisqu'il était commandeur de l'Ordre royal et militaire de Saint-Louis, et non simple chevalier.

Cordialement
Benoît de Perier

enlever "de Salvert" de son nom
par contre "Chevalier" vient en fait des "Honneurs" : nobilites exemple baron , dans son cas , c est son grade dans "Ordre de Saint Louis" qui le fait chevalier

Mister,

The name you give him is not his own. His name was Etienne de Perier and he did not have a knighthood. I have been writing his biography for 3 years, please contact me for information to correct this form.

Sincerely
