I am researching Edouard and Helps families. My maternal grandfather Victor Dore Edouard was born in Paisley in 1870, the 2nd of 4 children of Louis Edouin Edouard and Ada Sarah Edward(s). Louis and Ada were stated on Victor's birth registration to have married in London on 22 April 1867 but I cannot find a record of this in the English GRO. Louis and Ada's other children were Henri Eugene Edouard(e) born in Blythswood, Glasgow in 19 Sept 1868, Blanche Maud Edouard born 17 Aug 1872 in Manchester, and Horace Vernet Edouard born in 1876 or 1877 in Leeds. Louis Edouin Edouard was a 'scenic artist' at the time of his first two children's births. He died before Victor Dore Edouard married which was in 1894. My interest in the Helps family iscentred in Somerset, the earliest of which I have information being a Walter Helps born about 1822. The Edouard family and the Helps family (at least those parts that I am related to) bred fairly readily and I am aware of more than 200 people in these families from the early/mid nineteenth centuries, but would like to know of more.
