The site was started to just record the history of family members with the surname Ough ( pronounced "O" as in "though") who were part of the Cornish mining community living in Mexico. However, as the family tree was explored the site had to be expanded to cover many other branches of the family tree . Strong family connections have been discovered to relatives and ancestors in the United Kingdom, Mexico, New Zealand, Canada, France, Hong Kong and Australia. The web site has now become a repository for all kinds of historical and archival material about an unusual British/French/Mexican family.
We have found that the original members of the Mexican side of the Ough family are directly connected by close blood and marriage ties to other families with the following surnames: Alexander, Asher, Baker, Brown, Deakin, Dealy, Decouflet, Demolin, Glanville, Gibson, Guerard, Lafitte, Leggett, Plaxton, Savery, Shopland, Taylor, Telfer,
Smith, Rodriguez, Romero, Rule, Yandle, Ward-Harris and White.
The site continues to be developed. Minnie Ough Dealy has added more material to her memoirs. Other recent material includes items about Lucy Todd, Georgette Deakin and Sylvia Shopland. Lucy's memoire describes the sacrifices she made whilst her husband Kenneth was a POW on the Infamous Burma Rail road during WW2. He was a doctor with the RAMC having been captured by the Japanese when Singapore fell in 1942.
A new section is being set up to further cover the Dealy side of the family. New relatives with links to ancestors who lived in Sheffield have recently come to light. Material contributed by Pat Brown ( nee Dealy) and Anne King (nee Dealy ) who live in Western Austraila and Chris Dealy who is in Cornwall is now being added.
Our hope is that you will enjoy this site. If you have any comments please do contact us.
