Antoine Dominique Dufosee

Antoine Dufasse

I’ve been researching my 9x great grandfather, Antoine Dominique Dufosee, born in France in the early 18th century. He may have worked as an artisan/carpet weaver at Savonnerie Manufactory on the Quai de Chaillot. Savonnerie was established in 1615 by Pierre DuPont and became the most prestigious European manufactory of knotted-pile carpets.

Antoine was one of two french weavers that were smuggled to England in 1740 by Henry Herbert, the 9th Earl of Pembroke. Antoine and Pierre Jermaule were brought to Wilton to establish the carpet industry there. In 1742 the factory under the direction of Antoine Dufosee was granted a patent for the exclusive rights of producing cut pile carpet in England.
