Auguste Pierre de Lauret (1810–1881)
« on: Tuesday 18 April 17 01:58 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I wonder if anyone can help?
Auguste Pierre de Lauret (1810–1881)
Born   
12 October 1810   
Pondicherry, India

Died   
24 December 1881   
Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia

Have found mention of his name as:
Auguste Pierre de Guerry de Lauret

Passport issued to M. Auguste Pierre Clement de Guerry de Laurent by the Charge d'Affaires de France, 6 October 1835

Auguste de Laurent, 1811-1881, came to NSW in 1839

After his death there is mention of him as Marquis de Lauret, does anyone know of his parents?

According to his grand daughters obituary his father was the French Governor of Pondicherry, but which one? The British had captured it 1803-1816, in the period he as born there.

If you can help i thank you in advance.

Kind Regards
Paul Williams

Just found this:
from Southern Argus (Goulburn, NSW), 29 December 1881

Last Saturday, at Wynella, another resident of long standing and high position in this district passed away in the person of A. G. [Auguste Pierre] De Lauret, Esq., J.P. Deceased was born in France, and that his family were people of distinction is shown by the fact of his having been attached to the Court of the last of the Bourbons, in the capacity, we understand, either of gentleman-at-arms or page. From the age of the deceased gentleman, at the time of his death, which was 71 years, and from what history tells us of the fate of the Bourbon dynasty, Mr De Lauret must have been about 20 years of age, when, with other followers of his royal master, he found it necessary to leave his country for more hospitable shores. In this way, like many others, he went to England, and there, as well as in Scotland, passed some years of his life. From his social status he became acquainted with gentlemen of position connected with the colonies, and by them was furnished with excellent letters of introduction to persons of high standing in New South Wales, in which colony he resolved to find a home. He arrived in Sydney about the year 1841, and soon after engaged in squatting pursuits, in connection with Sir Charles Nicholson and Mr. Lithgow, as managing partner. Tois brought Mr. De Lauret to Currandooloy, near Bungendore, where he remained for a few years; next removing to Kenmore, near Goulburn, at which place he resided for a long period. When the partnership with the above named gentlemen expired and the affairs wound up, he purchased Wynella, and having a well earned independence, he settled there with his family. Mr. De Lauret breathed his last at his residence on Saturday morning after a long illness, leaving a sorrowing widow and ten children, to whom he had been a fondly attached husband and father, Mr. De Lauret was a gentleman of great energy and intelligence, and for many years he had been naturalized and in the position of justice of the peace, As an old, upright, and intelligent magistrate, and respected resident, he will be long regretted by the Goulburn bench and by the people of the district generally. An honest and educated gentleman is a loss to any community, particularly a new one–insensibly he affects the manners and opinions of others, even if like the late Mr. De Lauret, he should be of retiring disposition and habits.

It only add to the confusion as he was not born in France.

Kind Regards
