French, died 1801
Biography
François-Louis-Joseph was the son of Jean-Joseph, marquis de Laborde [1724-1793], banker to Louis XV under whose auspices millions of francs were sent to assist in the American revolution. Jean-Joseph was arrested at the family estate in Méréville and condemned to death during the French Revolution. His son François-Louis-Joseph was a financier as well. After joining many other young Frenchmen in the American war, he returned to the royal treasury office until 1789. He was part of the discussions in the Assembly regarding financial matters, after which time he gave up his political life. After the death of his father he fled to England, where he spent his last years. [Compiled from sources and references recorded on CMS].
