The term chauffeur has it’s roots in early motoring.
Way back then, trains and early cars were steam powered. A fire was lit under a large water tank, the water would boil and the steam was captured. When the steam was released into pistons connected to the wheels, the train or car moved. To achieve enough steam you would have to stoke or keep loading the fire with more coal, so the job of stoker was born.
As many of the early steam cars were invented in France, the French in turn needed a lot of stokers. The French word for stoker is chauffeur!
Early chauffeurs not only stoked the fires, but maintained and drove the cars.
So no matter how you spell the word chauffeur it’s all the same to us, we provide well maintained well stoked, prestige vehicles, expertly driven for business or pleasure.
