Whereas Jean-Jacques was ten years old, following a shooting party, Isaac Rousseau quarreled with the Genevese Pierre Gautier and after having wounded it of its sword, had to flee in Nyon to avoid the continuations.
Jean-Jacques was entrusted to the brother-in-law of Isaac Rousseau, Gabriel Bernard, who had married Théodora, the sister of Isaac. Jean-Jacques and his cousin Abraham Bernard, of the same age, were put in pension in Pasteur Jean-Jacques Lambercier and his Gabrielle sister at the Presbytery of Bossey.
The church of this ground of Savoy was attached to that of Geneva. On the chart, the church of Bossey at the time of Rousseau.
