Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Cheshire in the North of England and I have compiled a number of biographies of Agents of the French Section of the Special Operations Executive,who were captured and executed by the Nazis during the Second World War.
If you have come to this site to compile details of your family tree and this does include members of the Special Operations Executive.
If you wish to know more about the work of S.O.E the book by M.R.D. Foot - The Special Operations Executive can be obtained from many libraries in any major town or any University.
If you are tracing your family tree and you have information passed down from family members, concerning a relative being an active member of a Maquis group - or linked to one of the S.O.E. networks. Please note unless your family member joined S.O.E. and was trained in England, records would exist,if not trained in England no-record would exist for this person. Many recruits joined an S.O.E. network and were trained in the field and did use an 'alias'- the work involved was very dangerous carrying messages and equipment to other groups.
When captured many of these brave young men and women gave the alias as their real name. After brutal interrogation by the Gestapo. Many were then executed and buried in nearby woods,in mass graves, some were transported to concentration camps and executed upon arrival,their bodies then placed in the crematorium furnace, and their ashes scattered with other concentration camp prisoners
Because of this procedure being enforced by the nazis-it is not possible to trace numerous people,who died at the hands of the Germans.
Many young men were also deported for forced labour in Germany and were worked to exhaustion, often in the underground factories.When they died were placed in a mass grave.
Many families in France never saw the young male members again, who were sent to Germany for forced labour..

RE: Re : Andree Borrel SOE Agent
No Paul .
I am not a relative of Andree Borrel .

I read about her and was deeply moved by her story .
There was already a page to her on this site . Memorial number 19971221 which was posted in 2007 and it is terrible. It's not accurate and its very badly written .
I found there is another Page to her by the CWGC . Posted in 2010 . Memorial 56075145 . This one is excellent but doesn't have your photos .

And now you tell me of another . Yours . 66222922 .
I looked and it's also excellent .

Three sites seems too much but I can do nothing about the others . Even the appalling one !

RE: Re : Surname Haddock.
Hello Paul,
My earliest confirmed confirmed is Robert Armstrong Haddock, son of Thomas Haddock of England. I do not have a World membership to so cannot go any further with this line until I have time to go to the LDS Family History center which is about 40 miles from me. I don't know where in England they are from, but I believe it to be Lancastershire, wife from Yorkshire about 1800.

RE: Re : Surname Haddock.
Yes, Paul, I realize.
Amazing timing. I know of three who served in the US Army.
Lieut. Charles Richard Haddock, 28, son of Mr. and Mrs. T.J. Haddock of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, was missing in action in Belgium, Dec. 17 (year unknown, information from photocopied clippings I found yesterday).
He was liberated from a German prison camp. His wife and daughter were living in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the time.
He entered service in 1942 and received his commission as a field artillery officer at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He also received training at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, and Camp Maxey, Texas, and went overseas in October 1944 to England and then Belgium.
He had two brothers also in service, Maj. T.R. Haddock, a dentist, and First Lieut. James N. Haddock, a physician with the Army Medical Corps.
If you provide a direct email address, I can send a scan of the articles.
This family is not a direct relation, perhaps cousins linked to Thomas Jefferson Haddock, a Civil War veteran who homesteaded in Missouri.

RE: Re : Surname Haddock.
Thank you for the additional information, Paul. It is valuable.
Do you know of a specific individual or organization in England that is very knowledgeable about the Haddock family history? It would be wonderful to connect and share information.

RE: Re : Surname Haddock.
Yes they did from England, Leigh by the Sea, Essex, England. My earliest Grandfather was Adm Sir William Haddock 1607. I had one grandfather that was born in Maryland in 1720 then migrated to Pitt County North Carolina 1742, from there they migrated to Cumberland County Illinois abt 1848, my Grandfather Taylor Eratus Haddock was born there in 1880 then migrated to the Oklahoma Panhandle abt 1918. I do have a website on MY Heritage, called Haddock Web Site that has my genealogy. If you need any additional information please don't hesitate to contact me. Hope this helps.

RE: Re: Surname Haddock.
Hello Paul--
Yes, I believe my family and many other Haddocks in the USA descend from the Haddocks that originated in Leigh-on-Sea, England. As you probably know, there are many Haddock burials there and the family had some prominent military personalities.
My descent is from Whiteside Haddock (1811-1848) of Dubois County, Indiana, then considered part of the western frontier. Three of his children moved to Wayne County, Missouri, then a huge area of land west of the Mississippi River, and homesteaded there after the Louisiana Purchase.
Many lines on trace back to early Haddocks, one of whom was knighted. However, I am in the process of verifying our connections to this line. Have you checked the family trees posted there?
A book titled "Haddock Heritage" was published in a very limited edition in 2004 and is only available in three U.S. libraries and not loaned out. Another book, "Legends of the Haddock Family," published before the availability of the Internet, can be loaned but is probably less accurate.
Let me know if you have specific questions, bearing in mind that I have not yet personally verified the Haddock leap "across the pond."
