1. Major Peter Bocquet's House Marker
Inscription.
Peter Bocquet the younger built this house
shortly after the lot was given to him in July,
1770, by his father Peter Bocquet, senior, a
Huguenot immigrant. The younger Bocquet
became a major in the Revolutionary forces,
a member of the General Assembly, a Privy
Councilor and later State Treasurer and
Commissioner of Sequestrated Estates.
He planted in St. Paul's Parish.
The superbly handsome Georgian
decoration of the interior is notably like that
of Col. John Stuart's house, c. 1772, at
106 Tradd St. Other notable features are the
handsome Regency style front door frame,
done in stucco, and the second floor balcony.
