Hortense’s father’s family name: Bellemare-Gélinas

Her father’s – mother’s family name: Lamy. My own mother recalls,

“Lamy was another surname that I heard of in my childhood. Grandmère Bellemare and Auntie Fernande went to Bordeaux in search of ancestors around 1949 when Auntie Fernando lived in England with Nana & Grandad. She married Uncle Jimmy Dron (also) a Scotsman. Grandmère came to visit Nana in Dovercourt, England”.
