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
