Source :  Jacques CHANIS

Born: on February 14, 1773 in Lyon, Rhône, France
Died: on March 01, 1847 in Paris, France


He was born at Lyon, the son of Étienne Delessert (1735–1816), the founder of the first fire insurance company and the first discount bank in France. Young Delessert was travelling in England when the French Revolution broke out, but he hastened back to join the Paris National Guard in 1790, becoming an officer of artillery in 1793. His father bought him out of the army, however, in 1795 in order to entrust him with the management of his bank.
