In the 1666 census, Nicolas Perrot is working for Marie Pournin ("the widow Testard"). The concession of merchant Jacques Testard was located between 137 and 143 Saint-Paul street West, near the first Sulpician seminary. These days, the "Le Saint-Sulpice" hotel occupies this location.

In the 1667 census, Nicolas is listed as a servant of the Sulpicians. The original building, as well as much of the surrounding area, was destroyed by fire in 1852. The edifice you see at the back of the alley occupies the same space and is oriented the same way as the old seminary.
