Jean Palairet (1697 - 1774)

Palairet was a French cartographer born in Montauban who emigrated to England. He worked as an agent in London for the French States General, and taught French to the children of George II. While working as London agent for Jacob Boreel, Palairet apparently played a part in introducing the game of cricket to the Netherlands: in 1765 he sent four balls and 12 bats to the Netherlands, and attempted to find a copy of a rule-book for the game.
