Victorine du Pont and Ferdinand Bauduy marriage certificate1813
She married Ferdinand Bauduy (1791-1814) in 1813, but he died six weeks later, and she never remarried. After a period of grieving, she became involved in the Brandywine Manufacturers' Sunday School, sponsored by her father to teach workers' children, and was a teacher and superintendent until her death. Victorine also taught her siblings, nieces and nephews at home.
Ferdinand Bauduy was the son of Peter Bauduy (1769?-1833), business partners with du Pont, and Theresa Bretton des Chapelles (1773-1837). Victorine's father did not approve of the courtship, so Bauduy was sent to France for two years. The couple remained committed to each other, and E.I. relented when Bauduy returned. He died shortly after his marriage to Victorine from pneumonia.
