[From Mémoires de la Société d'Agriculture, Sciences et Arts d'Angers
, 1835, p. 44:] ....Although the number of roses that we reported in cultures of M. Coquereau, has not arrived at a very high figure, the collection which includes these is very large and not less remarkable, and the arrangement of the suitable. The seedlings of this distinguished amateur willincrease further, but their young age has prevented us from being able to describe this year we await the time when time has set the shape and color of their flowers in an immovable manner.
[From The Old Rose Adventurer
, by Brent C. Dickerson, p. 41:] Maître-École is the name of an area in the city of Angers, in France, where several breeders had property: Coquereau had land there in the 1830s-1840s; Moreau-Robert had a clos
("enclosure") there by 1866, perhaps handed down from his predecessors Vibert, Robert, and/or Robert & Moreau; later, ca. 1900, Chédane-Guinoisseau also owned property at Maître-École.
