I would be most grateful for any information on Douglas Fitch, a ship owner from Connecticut, who married as her first husband Clemence Bec, owner of the Chateau of Pradines, Grambois (Vaucluse), near Marseille, where Fitch had business interests (after his death Clemence remarried, in 1852, the poet Joseph Autran). Her grandson by Fitch, also Douglas Fitch still owned the Chateau of Pradines in 1912 and he and his wife were prominent members of the American expatriate community living in France. A report in the society pages of the New York times of 1902 mentions them entertaining Mrs Harold Fitch, presumably a relative. I am keen to find out the dates of Douglas Fitch Sr, the name(s) of his children, particularly the father of Douglas Fitch Jr, who in 1881 was painted by Auguste Renoir (I own this portrait, hence my interest). Thank you. Guy Sainty
