HOGUET, Henry Louis, merchant, born in Dublin, Ireland, 5 November, 1816. He came to the United States in 1834, and was clerk in a commercial house until 1848, when he became a member of the house of Wilmerding, Hoguet and Co., from active participation in which he retired in 1875. It was principally through him that the New York Catholic protectory was founded. He has been its president for over thirteen years, and has done much to make it successful.

Pope Plus IX. conferred on him in 1877 the title of Knight of St. Gregory the Great.
