Example text

As with the Champagné, their conversion dated as far back as the 1560s, when Jean Isle, Seigneur de La Matassière, was among those condemned to death by the Parlement of Bordeaux. The Wars of Religion found the Isle in Condé’s forces. 75 After the Edict of Nantes made peace between the confessions, the Isle perpetuated their Protestant commitments. Daniel Isle, Sieur de La Cave married the daughter, Madeleine, of the pastor Claude Heraud in 1634. Then in 1663–​1666, when the controller-​general Jean-​Baptiste Colbert subjected each Calvinist consistory in Saintonge and Aunis to an examination of its strict compliance with the provisions of the Edict of Nantes, Charles Colbert de Terron, first cousin of the Grand Colbert, served as the Catholic commissioner, and the lead negotiator on behalf of all the temples was Isaac Isle, Marquis de Loire, Marie’s second cousin and one of the kin advisors at Susanne Isle’s 1677 property division.

In this case, forever proved to be quite brief. The Charentes In time, Susanne Isle’s distribution of property through a daughter to a granddaughter—​involving, as it did, lesser shares for the other daughters and granddaughters—​would have unforeseen and unwelcome effects. But for the moment, it provided Marie, Josias, and the survivors among their six children born at Champagné with a noble residence, a profitable estate, a familial social matrix, and—​not insignificantly—​a healthy environment.

25 A Family of the Charentes in Distaf f 25 Dependencies created by lending and borrowing, however, ran both ways: lender and borrower became mutually dependent. Marie’s new position as simultaneously a creditor and a debtor carried risks. Her ability to pay what might be due to Madelene de Solière would be contingent upon her own ability to collect sums from a dozen different debtors, some of whom had owed the money to Susanne Isle since the 1640s. Even as the borrowers were beholden to her, Marie became dependent for her own solvency upon their repaying the loans.
