Apologies for my tardiness in responding, lots of family illness and death has prevented me from researching.  Just finding my way back slowly.

Thank you MKRD for your interest and connection with surname Vaux.

You may already know by now of the Sunderland Family Vaux of Vaux Brewery - there are many Vaux's in the Durham area over years, but I've yet to find a connection with this famous family.

I hope by now that you have ;-).

Best wishes 
Bishopwearmouth Sunderland Durham, Kent - surnames: Mennell, Mynell, Meynell etc, Vaux, Dowey, Gibbons/Gibbins, Dewart, Haugh and others.

Long Melford Sudbury Suffolk - surnames Piper, Sore, Whittle, Hardy, Bruning, Durwin, Howe and others.

Ireland: Quinn from Enniscorthy, County Wexford and Dewart Hillsbrorough County Down.  They moved to Sunderland sometime around 1850's, 1860's perhaps - marriage of Robert Dewart (born Ireland c1842) to Barbara Haugh occurred 1869 in Sunderland.

Hi Clemie,

Sorry to hear of loss and hope time is helping to heal the sorrow.

I've not been tracing this line of the much but since last I posted I stumbled across a Vaux in an article on the Pocklington History site (Pocklington being in Yorkshire where my G. grandfather was born).

http://www.pocklingtonhistory.com/archives/people/emigration/michiganemigrants/index.php

It appears that this Vaux line were from Huegenot descent arriving from France probably in the 18th Century rather than from Norman Conquest. This being the case then there may be different Vaux family lines.

All the best

Michael

Regards - Michael
