In a Paris sale in 2000, a pair of flintlock pistols were auctioned, the locks signed J. CAMBIER A NAMUR and the barrels ESQUIBEL EN MADRID ANNO 1719.
A Jacques Cambier, armourer, is mentioned as active in 1779-80 in Namur:
Quote:
Jacques Cambier, armurier à Namur, contre Amélie-Thérèse de
Hochsteden, chanoinesse de Susteren, au sujet du payement de
marchandises et de travaux pour le baron de Moitrey, 1779-1780.

(From the State Archives in Belgium/Provincial Council of Namur)
