Today, via the excellent website of French colleague and researcher Johan Netchacovitch, the final instalment from Philemon regarding the connections of Henri de Montfried with Ernest Cros has been posted. You can see that HERE.
"We realized over the number of publications that some characters appeared nowhere in this business of Rennes-le-Château, but were all more or less connected to Monfreid family! Such as Abbé Breuil, Director of Saint Sulpice, Emma Calvet, Jules Bois, Joseph Kessel, Ricardo Vines ...
...it is perhaps amazing that ALL elements of the history of Rennes-le-Château appear (recur?) at the coming of Henry de Monfreid to Rennes-le-Château with the Club des Chercheurs de trésors ...
This research also persuaded me that ALL the elements that constitute the business of Rennes were there BEFORE the arrival of the first team of researchers to RLC, and that they have added nothing else ... .. and that's by reviewing what they said in their first publications, notably when decoding .. for example the Small and Large parchment as explained elsewhere in the Gold of Rennes ...
This decoding will be the subject of a forthcoming publication ...
Philemon also contends that Father Mazières could theoretically meet and talk with Ernest Cros, but at that time, Ernest Cros was 83 years old, and he frequented the Razes ... if so, it was the abbe Mazières who had investigated and collected information at the beginning of the 60s to write the report Cros, especially as he gave two sources of information as the two daughters of Ernest Cros, but he made errors ... and therefore it seems Henry Monfreid is the most appropriate person for Mazieres to speak to!
Other elements that suggest that Henry Monfreid was closer than FIRST thought to the mysteries of Rennes-le-Château ... he spent much of his youth in La Franqui where his mother's family owned a holiday pension, La Franqui was where we could watch in 1880, the baptism of Henry worn by his godmother, Mrs. Chiffre, wife of Romain Chiffre, General Councillor of the Canton of Quillan and mayor of Espéraza ... Romain was also part of "Medef local" where he is presented as a local hatter. There is still a Impasse Romain Chiffre in Espéraza.
The wife of the mayor of Espéraza in (1877 - 1881) was therefore Henry Monfried's 's godmother ... Romain Chiffre. Were these people part of the local personalities regularly invited to Saunière?"
"Ce sont certains descendants d’Ernest Cros qui l’affirment, mais ce n’est pas encore vérifié, il semblerait bien qu’Ernest Cros soit le parrain d’Henry de Monfreid (la mère d’Henry était la marraine de Jeanne Cros), nous aurions donc le schéma suivant : parrain d’Henry de Monfreid, Ernest Cros de Ginoles-les-Bains, marraine : Madame Chiffre (je crois qu’elle se prénommait Pénélope), épouse du Conseiller Général de Quillan… ce qui nous ferait quand même pas mal de liens « familiaux » entre Henry de Monfreid et Quillan… au temps de l’abbé Saunière.
Ces liens ont-ils été ravivés en 1956 lors d’une éventuelle rencontre entre Henry de Monfreid et le curé de Quillan, l’abbé Mazières ?"
Great work and research carried out by Philemon - research that is very difficult to refute!!
