• Coulmer was part of Normandy. This hamlet of about 100 people now is part of the Department of the Orne, just south of Gace, head town of the Canton, 50 kilometers from Lisieux and 175 from Paris. Not far away flows the Touques, which passes by Lisieux before emptying into the English Channel.

[His birthdate is calculated from his 1/9/1695 admission as a patient at Hotel-Dieu where he gave his age as 64 and his origin as Normandie.]
