NB Joel HODECENT <hodecent.joel@wanadoo.fr> has prepared his own Genealogy of the family HODECENT
his line descends from Pierre HODECENT died 10th February 1653 Celon, who married Jeanne RIAN
It is pretty sure that we are cousins, but at the moment our lines do not connect.
Click on Pierre's name to see his descendants - perhaps you can also help Joel continue further with his studies!

These are odd lines relating to the family AUDECENT, all information enabling a connection to be made to the main family tree, will be appreciated!  To any distant cousins, WELCOME!
NB. Not enough attention was paid to families with the surname "Ozanne" in the Chateaudun Registers - further research should include a re'appraisal of this variant.

A Guillaume AUDECENT is mentioned the context is not understood, but it would appear that in 1458 he was one of the heirs of Michel Comier of Bourg d'Ire.  This would be the earliest mention of our name we know.  The text reads "...Jehan Quatrebarbes, Jehan Ensubert, Guillaume Audecent... (AD49-77J39/fo20v) Le 15.2.1458 Guillete la Frotee, heritiers de Michel Cormier."

There is also a Guillaume AUDECENT referred to as husband on 13th June 1564 Bourg d'Ire of Guillemine DELYMELLE, no doubt related to the Guillaume of 1458.  He and Jean Dellymelle, ? could he be a brother or father of Guillaume's wife, entered into an act with Mathurin Guybelais dated 3rd June in the same year 1564.

Group 3 - families OZANNE

This named family OZANNE' could be a very early branch of the Audecent family, in the Chateaudun records, there is one example of an "Ozanne" who is cross referenced to his date of death, where he is named "Audecent".  When visiting Chateaudun, I and my father did not follow this line spelling, and it is possible we might have found numerous connections based on this name!
