Overview and metadata sections

Hyde de Neuville, Anne-Marguerite-Henriette Rouillé de Marigny, baronne, 1749?-1849

The baron and baroness Hyde de Neuville lived in New Brunswick, N.J., during their years of exile (1807-1814) from the Napoleonic reign in France. The baroness was a watercolorist. The baron served as ambassador to the U.S. (1816-1822) and Portugal under Louis XVIII.

The collection consists of correspondence, photographs, and printed matter concerning the Baron and Baroness Hyde de Neuville. The collection contains Xerox copies of letters (with typed English transcriptions) exchanged between the baron, who was the French ambassador to the U.S. under Louis XVIII (1816-1822), and Thomas Jefferson, and a Xerox of a letter by Jefferson to James Madison, as well as photographs of the Hyde de Neuville house outside of New Brunswick, N.J., where the baron and baroness lived part of the time during their years of exile (1807-1814) from the Napoleonic reign in France. There are also catalogs of 20th-century exhibitions of the baroness's pencil sketches and watercolors of Indians, common people, and buildings of architectural interest such as the First Presbyterian Church of Princeton then under construction (1813).
