My husband has the name Abberley in the family going back to his great great granmother, who was an Elizabeth Abberley. Her father was called Thomas and was a bootmaker the area that we are searching is Cheadle and surrounding. However there was a 'story' that some where going back there was a Count Abberley. Now I know that there is an Abberley village and an Abberley hill in england and thought that the name came from there. However it has also been mentioned that there is some French in the history of the Abberleys. Does anyone know of any links to the Count or French thing? Need any help with the Abberleys full stop as I have only just got the confirmed relation to the family.
