Jean François Godefroy (ca. 1770 - August 2, 1850)

[From Monographie du Genre Rosier, by Auguste de Pronville, 1824, p. 148:] [the collection] of M. Godefroy of Villedavray, created with care and methodically arranged, is also one of the most complete I know...

[From Le Bon Jardinier, 1826, p. xvix:] ...M. Godefroy, pépinièriste à Ville-d'Avray....

[From The Gardener's Magazine, 1828, p. 15:] Godefroy's Nursery at Ville d'Avray, near Sevrès, appeared to be one of the most prosperous and English-looking nurseries we ever saw on the Continent. The extent may be three or four acres; the surface is a uniform slope, laid out in parallelogram compartments with narrow alleys between; and the soil is a saponaceous yellow loam, not unlike that of some parts of the Hammersmith nursery.

[From Annales de flore et de pomone, 1843, p. 262] Godefroy, proprietor-nurseryman, rue de Ville-d'Avray, Sèvres
