Hello. Can you help the Ahearn family in Torquay, Devon, England? We are
trying to find information about Jane's grandfather, Hugh Leonard Bauer who
originated from Hamburg before WW2 ,he lived in a big house in Hamburg,
which was taken over for use by the town's people,he then came to Exeter,
England to teach the English how to make good sausages. He married my
grandmother, Dorothy Glanville. We do know that my grandfather was 1 of 22
children some of which were twins. During the war Hugh was sent to Jersey.
That is all we know. Please could you help us to find out more?

Hi there and thanks for the message.
My Bauers came from a village called Dettenhausen in Baden, Germany in 1857
and settled in the Goorangoola district outside of Singleton in NSW, Australia.
The only way that I could get my Bauer lineage back to early Germany was through paying
a German rsearcher a fair bit of money - but it paid off. You would have to
sort out as to which German village/town your Bauers came from before
you could get anywhere with research, christian names are so common.
Bauer is a common name like Smith in Germany ( so I have been told).
