|Close info Window|
In August 1843 Richard Redmond Caton moved his family to Paris to better faciliate the
education of their daughters, where they took a suite of apartments in the boarding house
of Madame Durand St. Rose, at 8 Rue de Louis le Grand, this was probably arranged by
Richard's Brother Thurston Bewley Caton who was married to the daughter of Madam St. Rose.
However on 20th October 1843 Mr Caton was obliged to return to England and did not return untill 19th November, during which time an affair started between Mrs Caton and Madam St. Rose's son Major Edmond St. Rose who resided along with his wife in another apartment in house of his mother. It is not clear if Adultery had taken place at this time however on 3rd of December matters came to a head with Mrs Caton openly flirting with Major St. Rose, following a heated row Mr Caton left the house for a Hotel,
On 4th December, accompanied by his professional advisor, Mr. Okley, from the British Consulate, , Mr Caton returned to the house and required Mrs. Caton to go back with her husband and children to England. After some hesitation she consented to produce the children, and they were taken by Mr. Caton; but Mrs. Caton positively refused to quit the house and accompany her husband to his hotel, or go back to England.
In January, 1844, Mr Caton agreed to the return of their youngest child, aged 2, with a nurse; He had doubts as to his parenthood as it had been born just 9 months after Mrs Caton's affair in Brighton. In fact Mrs. Caton had later confessed to Madam Mary Ann St. Rose, wife of Maj. Edmond St. Rose, that she loved B. H. more than her husband and that, in the absence of the latter from home, she used to let B. H. into the house at Brighton at night, by leaving the door open.
Mrs Caton continued to reside at Madame St Rose untill March 1845. Shortly before this Maj. St. Rose's wife suspecting infidelity had caught her husband coming out of Mrs Caton Bedroom, he confessed his guilt and promised never again,
HOWEVER it was Maj. St. Rose who paid to set up Mrs Caton in a new appartment at Rue d'Algiers in March 1845, then shortly after they re-moved to 17 Bd des Capucines, Paris, where she was joined by her mother, and The Major became a constant visiter to their home, taking his meals with her, remaining with her sometimes till twelve or one o'clock at night, and in many respects acting as master of the house.
On the 15th October 1845, Mrs Caton gave birth to a boy at 17 Boulevard des Capucines.
At the time of her divorce in june 1854 she resided at No. 15, Rue Godoy de Manroi,

Albert Edouard Caton joined the Legion Etranger 16th November 1866 As a non French subject he joined the Legion de Etrangers (Foriegn Legion) at which time was stationed in Algiers. Note; French citizenship may be applied for after three years service. The Legion is the only part of the French military that does not swear allegiance to France, but to the Foreign Legion itself.
Any soldier who gets wounded during a battle for France can immediately apply to be a French citizen.

(A) As foreigner, has been officially been recorded on the 16th October 1866, in the town hall of the eighth arrondissement of Paris, the following in compliance with article 19 of the 'Code Napoleon', he has graduated from the Ecole Special Militaire as a foreign student with the number 172 out of 239 pupils. That he has joined the military contingent of the Département of the Seine, That he has voluntarily joined the foreign regiment.
According to French law the Legion was not to be used within Metropolitan France,
and thus, it was not a part of Napoleon III's Imperial Army that capitulated at
Sedan. With the defeat of the Imperial Army, the Second French Empire fell and
the Third Republic was created.
The problem was that the new Third Republic was desperately short of trained soldiers, so the Legion was ordered to provide a contingent. On October 11, two provisional battalions disembarked at Toulon, the first time the Legion had been deployed in France itself. They attempted to lift the Siege of Paris by breaking through the German lines. They succeeded in re-taking Orléans, but failed to break the siege.
Following the war the Legion assisted in suppressing the Paris Commune uprising.
