from Bradley's Dictionarium Botanicum, Vol.II, 1728, pages unnumbered, under RO:
Rosa mensalis, or Monthly Rose, otherwise, Rosa Damascena Polyanthos, The Cluster Damask Rose. This plant, in the Manner of its Growth, is in every Respect like the Damask Rose-Tree, but differs in the Manner of producing its Flowers, this bearing its Roses in Clusters, sometimes bringing fifteen, eighteen, or twenty Flowers in a Bunch. It is most commonly known by the Name of the monthly Rose, from its continued Disposition to blossom, even in the most violent Winter-Season, and by a little Assistance of Shelter, I have seen good Flower-Buds upon it at Christmas, when the Season has not been extreme Cold. This does very well for Forcing, either by Means of Fire or Dung, and is that which Mr. Millett, Nursery-Man at North-End uses upon that Occasion. The Flowers are of the same Colour, and as double as the Damask Rose, and is as agreeable to the Smell.

The parentage of 'Quatre Saisons Blanc Mousseux' is given as "Sport of 'Autumn Damask', but 'Autumn Damask' does not list 'Quatre Saisons Blanc Mousseux' as one of its sports.

Yes it does Andrew, but a little hard to recognise. One of the sports of 'Quatre Saisons' ('Autumn Damask') is listed as 'Rosier de Thionville', which is a synonym of 'Quatre Saisons Blanc Mousseux'.
