  • Notes 
    • Was an officer in the American Revolution. [3]
    • POCQUET de PUYLERY de SAINT-SAUVEUR (Mathieu-Louis-Claude), né a la Martinique, le 10 déc. 1750. Blessé à Savannah où il s'est distingué; blessé à la prise d'York. [4]
    • About his regiment which fought in the American Revolution:

      THE ARMY OF SAINT-SIMON (DE GRASSE'S FLEET)

      REGIMENT D'AGÉNOIS

      The first colonel of this regiment was Marquis de Crillon, 1776.

      Third, Comte d'Autichamp, 1779.

      The First and Second Battalions were in the West Indies in 1778-1783. A part of the regiment embarked on the squadron of Count d'Estaing and participated in the siege of Savannah. Lieutenant Blandat was killed in a sortie of September 27. On October 9, in the unsuccessful attack on the intrenchments, Captain du Barry and three subalterns were wounded.

      In 1781 the regiment was united and embarked on the squadron of Comte de Grasse to reenforce the army under Comte DE ROCHAMBEAU on the American continent. It arrived August 15 with the Gatinais and Touraine in Chesapeake Bay at the moment General Cornwallis was driven into Yorktown by Marquis de Lafayette and soon after surrounded by Washington and ROCHAMBEAU. The Marquis Saint-Simon had command of the reenforcements which debarked September 2 in James River and arrived at Williamsburg on the 4th, 4 leagues from Yorktown, where they formed a junction with Marquis de Lafayette, who commanded a corps of Americans.

      On October 3 two companies of grenadiers and chasseurs d'Agénois attacked the English pickets, forcing them back upon their defenses. The trenches were opened on the evening of the 6th. On the 15th Agénois repulsed a sortie, and on the 19th Lord Cornwallis capitulated.

      The regiment reembarked November 5 and returned to Martinique.

      It will be interesting to know part of the Agénois in the closing days of 1781 took passage on the vessels of Count de Grasse and contributed to the capture of Briston Hill, February 12, 1782, where it captured the Royal Scotch, formerly Douglas Regiment, which had retired from the service of France in 1768.

      In 1791 d'Agénois became the Sixteenth Infantry of France, with headquarters at Montbuson and St. Etienne.
