Francois Allain de Brittany, (b. 1702 - d. April 1782), a captain in the French army, played a conspicuous and distinguished part at the Battle of Fontenoy in 1745, where he bore, as captain of his regiment, the standard of France -- i.e. the fleur-de-lys of the Bourbons. For his bravery Louis XV de Bourbon (1710-1774), King of France bestowed upon him a sword of honor. Later he was posted with his regiment to Louisiana as commandant of the [Attakapas Post] and subsequently established himself as a planter in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana.
