The Rate Book examination of New Street Ward
section of Leicester Square reveals that François
Marie Jaunay's half brother, Louis Brunet was occupying
25 Leicester Square in London in 1800 and paying an annual
rent of £157. He occupied the premises from Lady
Day (25 March). In 1806 Louis has expanded into neighbouring
24 which had an annual rental of £60. In the same
year Mandry and Jaunay had taken on 30 Leicester Square
with a rental of £120 per annum but when the 1808
pages are examined François Jaunay is no longer
listed with Mandry and Louis Brunet has expanded again
paying £50 per year. François takes over these
three properties in 1815 with the records showing Louis'
name crossed out and replaced by Francis Jaunny [sic].
