The AUDCENT family of France, England, Canada and Australasia, derive from the family (H)AUDECENT of Eure et Loir, and for many generations lived in and around the town of Chateaudun in that Department of France. The earliest reference to the name todate is Guillaume HODECENT (patronyms: Haudessens& Haudecent) who in 1287 sold a piece of land to the brothers of the local Hotel Dieu (presumed the Abbey of St Denis) at Nogent-le-Rotrou, Perche, now in Eure et Loir. The next is another Guillaume "AUDECENT" mentioned in 1430 at Bourg d'Ire, Maine et Loire, also a Guillaume "AUDECENT" m. 13/6/1564 Bourg d'Ire, Maine et Loire, to Guillemine DELLYMELLE, and later we find Marie "AUDESANT" m. 10/5/1639 St Germain-en-Laye, Seine et Oise, France to Francois PAGET.
NOTE: there are numerous variants of the name, including:-
AUDECENT, ODSAN, HAUDECENT, HAUDESSANT, HODESANS, HODSAN, OXAN, AUXAN, AUXANT, AUXENT, OCCEAN, OZANNE , among others.
Genealogy commences with

Of this marriage he had a two known sons 'Philippe' m. 22/11/1699 St Madeleine, Chateaudun, Marie d'AUBETERRE and 'Jacques' (2nd of name)
m. before 1707 Perrine JARRY (her surname has many variants all completely different!!!
she d. between 1728 and 1733 at a place and actual date unknown, we desperately need to find this marriage,
however, it looks as if the relevant registers have been lost! see item 22 on Documents page (above).
They had 5 known children - all were married at Chateaudun, Eure et Loir, France.
1 Jacques m. 1728 Marie HOUDIN;
2 Andre (c.1707-1755) m. 1733 Marie HOUDIN the forebear of the English AUDCENT family.
