Kock, Charles Paul de (1794-1871), a voluminous and once popular French novelist, was born at Passy, his father being a Dutch banker. He began to write at seventeen, and in all produced works which fill nearly sixty volumes. Among the best known of them are Andre le Savoyard, Georgette, Le Barbier de Paris, and Maelirs Parisiennes. They are of the coarse realistic type, but show both observation and invention.
