(Witness) Abjuration On 22 October 1685, at Cabrières d'Aigues, Luberon, following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, Pierre Jourdan, Susanna Pascal, and their sons Pierre Jourdan de Cabriere and Anthoine Jourdan abjured their Protestant faith.10 
Assistance* On 31 October 1687, at Frankfurt, while travelling into exile following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, Pierre Jourdan de Cabriere and Paul Jourdan received aid from their church. It is argued elsewhere that the comment "point parents de Pierre JOURDAN." at the end of Paul Jourdan's assistance record at Geneva means that he and Pierre were not related and that the recorders were "at pains" to point this out. At the outset this seemed odd to me, and I wondered what the point would be for the recorders to make such a comment and to be "at pains" to do so. Furthermore, further along the journey the two men were recorded as "first cousins." So I spoke to a French speaker with some knowledge of evolution in the language, who says the word parents would be either parents or relatives. Consequently, without seeing the original, and comparing to other records with similar comments, I don't think we can be sure which it is. Much more logical, in my view, would be to note they while they were travelling together, perhaps appearing to be brothers because they were young men a few years apart, they did not share the same parents.11
