Marquisate de La Fayette

The fief La Fayette was raised to a marquisate by Letters patent in about 1690.[1]

Brigadier des armées René-Armand Count and Marquis de La Fayette (1659–1694), son of Madame de La Fayette (1634–1693), and François Motier, comte de La Fayette (1616–1683), died on 12 September 1694 of an illness in Landau during the Nine Years' War. In his will of 11 May 1692, he bequeathed to his sixth cousin Charles Motier Champétières, Baron de Vissac (though an 11th generation descendant of their common patrilineality ancestor Pons Motier de La Fayette, a knight of the Seventh Crusade) and his male descendants; the name and property of the house of La Fayette, as the substiuent for his brother Louis, Abbot of Notre-Dame de Valmont, and his daughter Marie-Madeleine, but leaves the enjoyment of the land of La Fayette to her. He did this to continue the name and title.

Edward Motier de La Fayette, Seigneur de Champétières, marquis de Vissac (1669–1740) takes the name of "La Fayette", pursuant to the substitution made in favor of his father (Charles Motier Champétières, Baron de Vissac).

Marie-Madeleine Motier de La Fayette (1691–1717) daughter of René-Armand and wife of Charles Louis Bretagne de La Trémoille Prince of Taranto, Duke of Thouars, peer of France, by will of 3 July 1717, transmits the land of Lafayette to her 6 years old cousin Jacques-Roch Motier (son of Edward Motier de La Fayette), as the representative of the Champétières branch of the family already substituted by her father in the name and title of the Seigneur of La Fayette.

Jacques-Roch Motier de La Fayette (1711–1734) passed marquisate de La Fayette to his brother, Michel du Motier, Marquis de La Fayette (1731 –1759), upon Jacques-Roch's death on 18 January 1734 while fighting the Austrians at Milan in the War of Polish Succession.

On 1 August 1759, Michel du Motier de Lafayette died by being struck by a cannonball while fighting a British-led coalition at the Battle of Minden in Westphalia, the marquisate de La Fayette went to his son, Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette (1757–1834).

Descendants of Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette and Marie Adrienne Françoise de Noailles

Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette married Marie Adrienne Françoise de Noailles (2 November 1759 – 24 December 1807), the daughter of Jean-Paul-François, 5th duc de Noailles, and Henriette Anne Louise d'Aguesseau. They had four children: Henriette (1776–1778), Anastasie Louise Pauline du Motier (1777–1863), Georges Washington Louis Gilbert du Motier, (1779–1849), and Marie Antoinette Virginie du Motier (1782–1849).

Georges de Lafayette married Emilie de Tracy, daughter of the Comte de Tracy, in 1802; they had three daughters and two sons: Natahlie, who married Adolphe Périer; Mathilde, who married Maurice de Pusy (1799–1864, son of Jean-Xavier Bureau de Pusy); Clementine, who married "Gustave" Auguste Bonnin de La Bonninière de Beaumont; Oscar Gilbert Lafayette (1815–1881), liberal politician; and Edmond (1818–1890) also a liberal politician.[2] Mathilde and Maurice had a son, Octave Bureaux de Pusy (1832–1889). Nathalie and Adolphe had a daughter, Octavie Périer(1826–1876), who married Sigismond Pourcet de Sahune (1810–1903).

A 6 February 1892 presidential decree authorized the great-great-grandsons of the general, Paul Pourcet de Sahune (1861–1926), Gaston Pourcet de Sahune (1855–1942) and Gilbert Bureaux de Pusy(1871–1950), to add to their respective names "du Motier de Lafayette."
