The Chauvel family in Normandy maintained nobility in 1666 and the Chauvels of Martinière in Blésois (English: Blois) and Maine gave a treasurer from France to Bourges in 1642. The Nouëttes branch of the family gave Jérôme, a prosecutor of the bourgeois of Rennes who was ennobled in 1606, and two councilors to the Parliament of Brittany in 1672.
