J. de la Berge

I know it is not an etymology question, but does anyone know the first name of J. de la Berge the author of Alcedo meninting verreauxii?

No doubt to whom he dedicated the name as he wrote:

Quote:
Cette belle espèce, qui a été rapportée de Borneo par M. S. Müller, est dédiée à M. Jules Verreaux.
Maybe a descent of Alexandre Louis de La Berge (1809-1839) here? Or some relationship to Albano Marchais de Laberge? Or is he Jean Baptiste Gustave La Berge (1817-1892)?

The debated "Alcedo Verreauxii" was also mentioned, but shorter, the previous year (1850). This bird/guy have earlier been dealt with/mentioned in the older BirdForum thread The various Mr. Verreaux's and their Birds … (here, see posts #50-51).

Who Monsieur J. De La Berge was? I still haven't got a clue.

The last I mentioned ( Jean Baptiste Gustave) has an entry in Leonore here.
