William Dutaillis

Auguste’s son… remember Auguste!

I still dont know exactly where Auguste was born or where he died or who his parents were but I do know quite a bit about his 9 children …

William is the eldest boy. I actually suspect he was adopted but cant prove it …. yet… He is my ancestor.

He was a cook: Cook to Lord Ducie. He was promoted during his employment to “House Steward to the Earl of Ducie”. He lived at both Tortworth Manor in a wee house on the extensive grounds and on Seamore Place in London at #2, beside the house the Rothschilds eventually bought.

He and his wife Martha raised three children: the eldest, a girl named Harriet; the middle child a son named Henry; and the youngest, Mary Ann, my ancestor. Whom you’ve also met.

William and Martha retired to Ramsgate, Kent where their daughter Mary Ann and her husband George Hodge ran the Shipwright’s Arms. It sounds like a lovely place to retire: the coast of Kent.

My own retirement in process… an interesting life stage. I hope things turn out as well for me.

I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Gettin' on... Soon an official senior citizen... few more years... looking for a place to keep track of all My Stuff... Hence, "Aud's Stuff." If you have too much stuff too, you may find this interesting. ALSO, Alzheimer's has been such a huge part of my life I will be posting on that a lot too most likely ... I am in transition from being a caregiver to being Who Knows What! Watch my journey!
