The PAVIOUR family as far back as I have traced them, were in Hammerwich, Staffordshire, England in the early 1700s.
The SCHMIDT family were from Sobernheim, near Bad Kreutznach, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. Family history tells of the departure for England of the three sons in about 1797 with the imminent approach of Napoleon's army to their village. They became successful bakers and confectioners in London.
Descendants and extended family live in New Zealand, Australia, and UK.
