Per L&M Companion:
French by birth, he was one of the Duke of York's less successful proteges. He had some naval experience with the royalists in Jersey in 1649, and at the Restoration was given a post in the Queen Mother's household. After the Second Dutch War (in which he was deprived of his commission, his guns doing more damage to his own side than the enemy) he was made cupbearer to the Duke of York and was employed on a series of minor diplomatic missions before being given another naval command (captain of a galley in the Mediterranean) in 1671. He was knighted at some date unknown and had died by 1688.
