Biographical history

The Vaudry family came to the Eastern Townships in the mid-19th century when Hypolite Vaudry (1834-1905) moved to Shefford and later to Waterloo. Hypolite and his wife Martha Olive Craig (1841-1923) had four children; Mary, Alphonse, Frederick and Hermon. Dr. Mary Olive Vaudry (1870-1951) a graduate of McGill and Bishop's University, moved to Lennoxville in 1905 and persued a career in teaching at the Lennoxville Academy, Knowlton Academy, in Waterloo, Windsor and Sawyerville. Hermon Lloyd Merle Vaudry (1884-1948) came to Lennoxville in 1916 where he built greenhouses in order to sell fruits and vegetables at the Sherbrooke public market. In 1925, Hermon married Olive Craig Warren, descendant of settler John Savage (1740-1826). The couple had two children; Julia Helen Vaudry (1926-2015) and Frederick John Hermon Vaudry (1928-1991). Frederick took over his father's commerce and turned it into a flowershop in 1955. The Vaudry and Lloyd streets in Lennoxville were named after Mary and her father in 1991.
