A "vaisseau du Roy" named Le Marin, commanded by "Mr. Guillotin", with a long crew list (without any of the usual details of age, home town, etc.) had a permit from La Rochelle dated 23 Nov. 1688. None of the normal details of home port, tonnage, "armateurs", or destination were given. (Source: Archives on line Charente-Maritime, crew lists La Rochelle 1682-1696 B 235, images 359-362.)
