Edme Courot in Clamecy, Nièvre (58)

Romain Rolland's grandfather, Edme Courot (1815–1900, was a solicitor in Clamecy on Rue de l'Hospice, the present Rue Romain Rolland. In 1865 Émile Rolland married Edme's daughter, Marie Courot, and his son-in-law started a solicitor's office adjoining that of his grandfather's at 4 Rue de l'Hospice, which is where Romain Rolland was born in 1866. Edme Courot wrote a substantial book, Annales de Clamecy jusqu'en 1852, and formed the Société Scientifique et Artistique in 1876.
