The original parish record of the marriage has Jean's parents as of the parish of St Germain de la Cime, Brie, (cathedral town of?) Sens, Burgundy.
Wikipedia lists about 132 places called Saint-Germain but none with "de la Cime" or similar.

My web search for "St Germain de la Cime" brings up nothing but supposed Mignot Labrie ancestries such as http://www.mmiousse.com/labrie.html.  No such place seems to exist.  All copied from one source presumably. 
Rutter, Sampson, Swinerd, Head, Redman in Kent.  Others in Cheshire, Manchester, Glos/War/Worcs.

The link to the actual images isn't working for me right now but Seine-et-Marne archives do have scanned parish registers online.

The first thing I would do is look at the original records for Saint-Germain-Laxis (presuming those years survive) to confirm the marriage in "around" 1664 and look for any baptisms after the marriage.

Many thanks to everyone for your help.
What I have found confusing is the different terminology used.
I now understand the terminology (Arrondissement, region, evechee, etc) and feel confident that the marriage occurred in the Ile-de-France region.
