When one would lead them in another fortress
Mr Lemot in his historical note on Clisson, does not quote Essards with the number of the castles in which one transported the young Duke Jean V and his Richard brother; he only says: De Clisson one carried out them has Palluau; of one made them come has Chantoceaux; and, to make lose their traces, they were still transfer in the castles from Noailly, Thors, Midsummer's Day d' Angeli, Coudray, Salbart and of Bressuire, of or one finally brought back them to the castle of Clisson, in the keep of which they were narrowly contain. However Bouchet (Annals of Aquitaine) the fact of containing during some days in Essards; and the tradition reports that they came from the castle of Vendrennes or they also had been led and held. Vendrennes is not which has approximately two miles of Essards; and we think that these two unhappy princes are there indeed master keys, when one carried out them of Chantoceaux in Saintonge, or same has Palluau.
