A tribute to the life and work of Brian Torode

Ozouet Family of Lithaire in La Manche and Jersey

Please click on the following link to read interesting details of Brian’s family history… Ozouet Family of Lithaire in La Manche:

‘… We know that Aimee Celeste Ozouet (nee Le Forestier), mother of the three girls, continued to live for some time in Lithaire after the death of her husband and she was present at the marriage of her daughter Agathe, in Lithaire, to John Louis Salmon in 1845. She attended both marriages of her daughter Eugenie in 1869 and again in 1873. However, as we have seen above, in the Jersey 1861 census return, she is listed, under her maiden name of Le Forestier, as a border in the house of Jean Baptiste Richcoeur and his wife Jospehine, Aimee’s daughter.   Aimee is then aged 55 and she is described as a widow, born France. Her occupation is given as mantua maker – a costume pattern maker or a coat pattern maker…’
