Auddy History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Noble surnames, such as Auddy, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Auddy, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Savoie. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Auddy family derived their surname from the name of the city of Audeville in Savoie.

Early Origins of the Auddy family

The surname Auddy was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps. The Odette variant probably originated in D'Audeville in the commune de Loiret, arrondisement of Pithiviers. [1]

Princess Odette is the White Swan, the lead ballerina role in Tchaikovsky's famous Swan Lake.

Nicolas Audet travelled from France to Canada around the middle of the 17th century. He worked as a porter for Mgr. de Laval. After settling in Quebec he married Madeleine Despres on 15th September 1670. They had twelve children and remained together in Quebec until Nicolas passed away at l'île-d'Orléans in 1700. [2]
