Buffarot, a weaver in Capdrot, roused the Perigord peasants in a revolt against injustice and oppression.
In 1637, he was executed on the wheel in Monpazier. “He was broken on a scaffold of all his members, one after another, the head last, without being blindfolded.” (book of the late Maître SAVY).
Pierre de MOLINIER captured him in Monpeyran, in the jurisdiction of Villeréal, following orders received from Bernard de LA VALETTE, the duke of EPERNON. “They took his members to different places, his body on a cherry tree at Bernadet, his head at Belvès.” (Pourquery)
