If you look on the national archives site there are quite a few Gidoin names, and from that I concluded that the name could originate from France, Orleans. Also there were people serving in the Indian army. On family search site there are quite a few with that name too, living in Modbury Sidmouth, and further back a Gidoin married a pearcc in London. I think if you trace back on the mothers side it might be useful as the name only comes on the female side with Emma, passing it on to a daughter. The name is quite distinctive, so should be easy to pick up.|
