Sorry this isnt about Theodoric. My brother is A. Rideout and I was suprised to find another L Rideout. I live in Hertfordshire UK and wondered whether you would be kind enough to let me know where you are. i have often wondered if all the Rideouts are related since the name is unusual. I will check my e.mail to see whether you have replied. Len Rideout Herts UK.
