More information

Jean-Baptiste Say was born in Lyon. His father, Jean-Etienne Say, was born to a Protestant family, which had moved from Nîmes to Geneva for some time in consequence of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Say was intended to follow a commercial career, and in 1785 was sent, with his brother Horace, to complete his education in England. He lodged for a time in Croydon, and afterwards (following a return visit to France) in Fulham: during the latter period he was employed successively by two London-based firms of sugar merchants, James Baillie & Co and Samuel and William Hibbert. ...   Jean-Baptiste Say was born in Lyon.
