Notes for George Anselm TUCHET

George Anselm Touchet was born at Stalbridge, Dorset; died about 1689.
He was second son of Mervyn, twelfth Lord Audley, second Earl of
Castlehaven, and a man of profligate life, whose first wife was
Elizabeth Barnham. George was professed as a Benedictine at Saint
Gregory's, Douai, 22 Nov., 1643, taking the name Anselm in religion.
Being sent on the mission in the south of England, he was finally
appointed chaplain to Queen Catherine of Braganza in 1671. In that
capacity he lived at Somerset House till 1675, when he was banished.

Dodd states that he was expressly excluded from the succession to the
Earldom of Castlehaven by the Act of Parliament which in 1678
confirmed the earldom to his elder brother James. While living in
London he published a book called "Historical Collections out of
several grave Protestant Historians concerning the Changes in
religion, and the strange confusions following, etc." (1674; 2nd ed.,
1686), and in 1680 he issued "The Secret Paths of Divine Love",
translated by him from the French of Constantine Barbason.
