Default French Navy flintlock pistol made at Mansle

I have a French navy pistol with brass canon barrel and brass lockplate with the signature of the adress " MANSLE". I think that this pistol is one of a pair and the name of the maker was on the lockplate of the other pistol. Unfortunately I cannot find any gunmaker at Mansle in France - perhaps has one of the French forumites a pistol also made at Mansle with the name of the gunmaker on it. By the way: The barrel shows the mark of St. Etienne, so has obviously been made there what was abyolutely normal as St. Etienne made lots of firearms for the French Atlantik fleet at Brest and lots of arms for the mercantile marine.

There is an arms shop in Mansle; could they be family of the old smith ?
