Hoping someone can tell me why dragoons of various Regiments were listed as godparents at the baptism of children in towns around Vigan in the Gard during the first half of the 18th century. I am well aware of the religious wars there, but some of these dragoons seem totally out of place, not relatives of the persons in the record.
It seems more like this was government policy. Was it because the soldiered were quartered with these families while stationed in the area?
Thanks for any help.
