French banker. He married Henriette Hillmer (1753-1821) and was the uncle of Jean-Georges Meuricoffre, who in 1792 married the singer Celeste Coltellini who was herself the daughter of Marco Coltellini, librettist of Mozart's La finta semplice K51. It is possible that the Mozarts first met Meuricoffre during their stay in Lyon in 1766. Lit.: Müller von Asow, 'Meuricoffre-Coltellini. Ein Ehepaar aus Mozarts Bekanntenkreis'; Capriati, Ritratto di famiglia: i Meuricoffre; Basso, I Mozart in Italia, 611.
