Etienne Boileau. c1200 - c1269. The traditional founder of the Boileau family, but this is highly doubtful in actual fact. Most probably the Boileau were originally drapers, who got ideas above their station. This is a statue of Etienne in front of the Hotel-de-Ville in Paris. Etienne Boileau is mentioned in Joinville, as Grand-Provost of Paris in 1250.
