André-Charles Caron – Article

Last updated on February 8, 2020

(Le français suit…)

I wrote a two part article on André-Charles Caron (1698-1775) that was published in two issues of the NAWCC Bulletin in 2019. This article not only unearths previously unknown details about André-Charles’ life and origins, but also discusses his illustrious son Pierre-Auguste (who later became known as Beaumarchais) and his faithful journeyman Jean-Antoine Lépine, who married one of Caron’s daughters and took over the business when the old horloger retired.

Cet article révèle des détails inédits sur les origines et la vie d’André-Charles, mais discute aussi son illustre fils Pierre-Auguste (connu plus tard du nom de Beaumarchais) ainsi que son fidèle compagnon Jean-Antoine Lépine, qui maria une des filles de Caron et pris en main la boutique après la retraite du vieil horloger.
