HECQUET, ?. 18?? — 1???. French Colonial Officer in South India. In 1878 he was a former mator of Pondichéry, who was supposed soon to become a Professor of Tamil in Lyon. There are too many Hecquets in French India (and nobody deemed worth of biography), he could be Emile Hecquet (Karikal 23.10.1832 — 1897).
