Source Internet : www.quesnels.com/history.htm Nicolas-Louis and Marie-Elisabeth had three sons and two daughters. The youngest son was François-Prosper Quesnel (see below) and the elder of the two daughters, Marguerite, married an Englishman, John Holker, in 1769 in Rouen. John Holker had been born in Manchester in 1745, and his family, for four generations beginning in 1620, had lived (where else?) in Eccles. His father, also named John, had been born at Stratford and settled in Manchester in 1741, intending to set up a cotton mill. In 1745, however, he joined the Scottish uprising of Bonnie Prince Charlie, was wounded, taken prisoner and sent to the Tower of London to be hanged, but managed to escape to France. Unable to return to England, he started a cotton mill near Rouen. With the help of experts from England, he promoted the cotton industry on a huge scale thoughout France and was named General Inspector for Manufactured Goods, in which charge he was succeeded by his son. He became a French national in 1766. His son John, married to Marguerite Quesnel, continued his father's work and joined the nobility in 1774. Leaving his wife and son behind, he went to the United States in 1777, where he served as French consul in Philadelphia for several years. He started a second family in America, where he died in 1822.
