The legend about Helen Guivier's origin

Amazingly, James Franklin Fuller's information on his own wife, Helen Guivier, is not reliable: [Thomson, 2009] shows in great detail that this story is untrue, and there is no connection to any "Guivion" or "Gouvion". He lays out in detail Helen Guivier's true origin. He tracks the career of her father Jean Prosper Guivier and her grandfather Etienne Simon Guivier.
This research is summarised in [Frewen, 2014].
