l 3 .................jouissant de ses droits
l 4 ................ de défunte
l 5 marie franquet (?)
l 8 .................pierre cauderan (?)
l 9 .................son maistre

It definitely looks as if the priest has written "quiton" rather than "quinton" even if you know that was the mother's name.

Could it simply be "céans" = ici même (here) ? Not sure how it was used at the time.

Thanks to Généabank, I have found reference to a marriage of Anthoine RABATTE of Fieulaine at Montigny-en-Arrouaise on 28 February 1691.  He is the son of another Anthoine and Marie BRAUSSAR? (the transcriber's question mark).  Unfortunately, there don't appear to be others of the name in the early Fieulaine registers as you found.

I'm no expert on military records, but I agree he left the army in 1713. I don't know if he returned to the Invalides in Paris - it sounds as if he might have done, but then went to Montreuil. I do know that "au détachement" means that he was an out-pensioner of the Invalides just like a lot of Chelsea Pensioners in the UK.  There might be a little more information in the military archives in Vincennes, though I know there isn't a lot on ordinary soldiers.

"Beauregard" would be his nom de guerre (dictionary translation of "nom de guerre"!), but why he chose it I don't know. Anyway it seems to be tying things together, so I'm glad it's of help.

Looking again at the index to the Montreuil-sur-mer parish registers, I noticed the burial of Jean Baptiste RABATE on 28 July 1731 and the indication "invalide".  This led me to search the Hôtel des Invalides database and I found Jean Rabaté.  If you search here with just the name Rabaté, up he comes:

A possible lead.  And it may be a coincidence that Marie Marguerite BERTOLLE, fille de Claude et Marie Marguertie née Rabaté also married a soldier...or not.  More food for thought.

I think it says :

"...à son décès f(emm)e de m(onsieu)r..."

Other baptism entries say Claude Berthier is "Commissaire aux vivres" which seems to be borne out by the footnote 24  on page 207 of this book:
https://books.google.fr/books?id=pKnyCQAAQBAJ&pg=PA207&lpg=PA207&dq=claude+berthier+receveur+g%C3%A9n%C3%A9ral+des++vivres+d%27amiens&source=bl&ots=MRcuYQkD8r&sig=ACfU3U3Mq_K8vbUsml2uSSW9fr9BJ7LG5w&hl=fr&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjD9q68naL0AhXsBGMBHYhlAZYQ6AF6BAgQEAM#v=onepage&q=claude%20berthier%20receveur%20g%C3%A9n%C3%A9ral%20des%20%20vivres%20d'amiens&f=false
It would seem that his job as "receveur de l'Abbaye de Corbie" was a side-line in addition to his main job.

I'm not sure if this really helps but I have found a Suzanne BERTHIE daughter of Claude BERTHIER, receveur de l'abbaye de Corbie and Suzanne LEDOUX who married Antoine BOISSEL on 24 April 1679  Amiens - St Firmin de la Porte.  This could be the Suzanne born in 1660, in which case either the younger Suzanne was adopted by Claude Berthier or there is an error in her baptism record.  So far I haven't found the marriage of Claude Berthier and Suzanne Ledoux, but their son, Claude, was baptised on 4 June 1662 in the same parish.
