A COMPREHENSIVE COLLECTION ABOUT THE OUGH FAMILY
The history of the family is mixed and varied and originated in many different parts of the world. Amongst its members the family can boast a variety of occupations including miners, soldiers, doctors, sailors, airmen, architects, writers, artists, linguists, musicians, hedge trimmers, salesmen, managers, conservationists, teachers, mathematicians, chemists, geologists, environmentalists, mountain climbers, swimmers, modellers, concientious objectors, theosophysts, engineers, metallurgists, nurses, business entrepreneurs and priests.
Yet more stories of members of the family can be found in the sections covering the lives in Mexico and Jamaica of various Oughs between the two World Wars and the years between 1946 and 1970. Other sections are about lives of family members who now still live in New Zealand, Mexico and England.The provenanced history of this branch of the Ough family goes back to the early 17th century. Our forefathers came from the County of Cornwall with roots in places like St Clear. The origins of the unusual family name are supposed to be Norman and linked with the French word for water L'eau.
Nowadays people with the surname Ough can be found not only in the United Kingdom, but also in many other parts of the world including places like Mexico, Canada, Australia, the USA and New Zealand. There is even a town called Ough in Nebraska, but it does not appear on too many maps as it is now only a road junction.
Members of the family have lived and served in a wide variety of places in the world including Mexico, Hong Kong, France, Australia, England, Japan, New Zealand, Germany, Norway, the United States, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. One way or another we have left our mark somewhere!
You will find the stories of another branch of the family, under the "Deakin Collection". This includes the history of Adolphe Demolin who served in World War 1 as an Infantryman with the French Army. During World War 2 he was Mayor of La Madeleine village in Northern Occupied France. There are also extracts from the letters of Andre Guerard. Andre wrote over 1500 letters during his service with the 36th Caen Infantry Regiment in the French Army between 1914 and 1918. The material includes family trees, photographs, memoirs, jottings and any other information available about any member of the Ough family that can be displayed via the Internet.
