Audoires move to Sheffield
« on: Monday 10 January 11 22:45 GMT (UK) »
 Hello, I am an Audoire descendant and trying with out much success to identify a good number of pics dating back to around 1900 . At this time several branches of Audoires from both Alderney and Guernsey emigrated to Sheffield. A colony was formed.
I have recently posted a similar request on the Guernsey Forum with some pics.
I feel this is about my last attempt after several years of effort. I really felt as though I had to try since many of the pics would be forever a mystery.
Likewise a Refugee group was formed and there is little documented evidence apart from my pics etc.
Please advise
Mike

I note there are six (or so) Audoire members in Sheffield in the 1911 census. There is an excellent site "Picture Sheffield" run by the library with thousands of Sheffield images - but there is no reference to the family in the index. Might be worth a look, though.

Hi Andrew,
I think you have a sheffield name?
I think I have explored all avenues in Sheffield and accounted for the Audoires here.  The unusual name helps.The problem is identifying the Channel Island ones.
I imagined that there could still could be descendents who could identify their relatives. We are only talking grandfathers or great grandfathers. (particularly re.WW2 evacuees)
There must be photographs elsewhere that can be cross referenced and also the C.I. are small and people close knit.
I use picture Sheffield and also "Sheffieldhistory" I have had great leads there.
Thanks for your interest.
Kind regards
Mike Dyson

Apologies on two counts. Firstly, for getting your name wrong (!) and, secondly, for misunderstanding your query. Am I right in thinking you are looking for remaining Audoires in CI, coming from the Sheffield direction? In that case, I cannot really help as you seem to have used all the right sources.

I do have a Sheffield name - I can trace my line back to the Ecclesfield Machens in 1560 and was born in Sheffield (but I now live in SW France). My wife's family is solidly Jersey (she is a de Ste Croix) and we are going there again next month for more genealogy, as there is little pre-1841 on the net. Much of what there is stems from Ancestry-style "supposition" rather than solid evidence. Is there an Audoire connection to Jersey - if so, I'll have a look at what is around next month.

Hi Andrew,
I dont know if you had my name wrong. anyhow its michael dyson but mothers name audoire.
I am really looking for any Audoires, or anyone, who can help with a fair number of photos. Otherwise useless for posterity.
Do you know of a Peter Machin, Sheffield local history buff?

Hi Mike

Couple of questions.

Where are the pics?

Are you on Facebook (sorry)?

The reason why I ask is because there are two (closed) groups on Facebook. One call Jersey Temps Passe and the other Jersey Family Tree. The former specialises in collecting old Jersey photographs and giving the history of the location. They have possibly over 1,000 photos and I am sure they may be able to help. The latter specialises in Jersey Family History and giving advice and if needed (paid) research.

Hi
Jen and Stuart
I posted a few on the Guernsey forum but with no answers, tried Alderney Library-Museum? but uninterested, years ago now.


Stuart- the pics will only relate to Alderney and Guernsey, the later is where my Grandfather came from. (You may know Alderney was probably the base for Audoires) There is a site, Channel Islands  and the Great War, they put some pics on.
I have however been trying to put something together about WW2 refugees in Sheffield which does include Jersey. Some people there that I dont know. I put a group pic on the Guernsey forum, no response.

I am on face book, look for the badger. How about you Jen?
Thanks
Mike
