Ancestors of Cornelius Autry - FRANCE? IRELAND?
Hector Ed Autry
- Close
Cornelius Autry, an immigrant to the United States has thousands of descendants. It is widely held that he was born in 1720 in France, and migrated from the Hauote Saone Province of France, but others say he was born in 1709 and migrated from Ireland. The purpose of this posting is to connect with anyone in France and/or Ireland tracing the Autry or Autrey family lineage in those countries.

A website has been established, "Cornelius Autry-Immigrant Descendants", but of wider world-wide interest is the "Autry DNA Project":

http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Autry-DNA-Project/default.aspx .  

If you are tracing any Autry or Autrey lineage in either France or Ireland, please send me an E-mail at hectorautry1@gmail.com  with the Subject line:

 "AUTRY LINEAGE IN FRANCE" or "AUTRY LINEAGE IN IRELAND".

 Thanks,

Hector Autry, "Heritage Heck"

HI Robert,

I'm a descendent of Cornelius Autry's son Drury (and my father is a Robert Autry from NC too!)

I'm currently researching the origin of Cornelius Autr(e)y and have come across the popular theories of his immigrating from France or Ireland.  Both are plausible, but proving the theory that he came from France is trickier.  

Would you mind sharing the information that you have that leads you to believe that he immigrated from France?  Do you know where the information about his father's name "Jeopine" comes from?  I read recently that this name could be a result of poor translation because it could mean "J'opine" (je opine) which roughly translates to "I declare, believe".  So it may not be his father's name at all.

There are about 7 villages in the Haute-Saone region of France that include the Autrey name in it. And if he was descendent of Huegenots, this can make it more difficult to find birth records in France during that era.

I'm brand new to geneological research so any advice or feedback you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

 Sincerely,

Heather Autry

Hi,

I am looking in to the possiblity that  the Autrey's came indeed from France then on to Ireland and on again to North Carolina. Cornelius Autry was born in Ireland around 1707, this makes me wonder if his ancestors were French Huguenots.

Many huguenot families show the same movement pattern from France to either Britain or Ireland stay for a couple of year or even a decade and then sailed on to the USA or Canada. Ireland was only a pitstop

As soon as they arrived in Ireland the surname was mispelled as  Arterys and they still have this name here

I see what I can find

Hi Annemarie,

I'm a descendant of Cornelius Autrey and originally from North Carolina.

I'm doing research to discover his origin.  Could you share with me the source of his birth information in Ireland?

I've also recently heard about the surname "McAughtry" which throws a spanner into the works!

It would be lovely to receive your feedback!

 Heather

Funny you say that Cornielious Autry migrated to North Carolina that's the state I was born in.
