Dear Alice, How much do you know of Sir Maurice's family.I am interested in descendants of his 3rd son, Edward. I am confused because his history states that his son George sat in both the Short and the Long Parliaments as for M.P. until his death in 1615. We are descended from Anthony ABBOTT and Rebecca HUNT married in Greater Saxham (nr. Bury St Edmunds) in 1773, living in Abchurch Lane, London. It is rumoured that Edward went to Leghorn and that there is some connection with generations born in Italy. This is probably only family wishful-thinking. Greatful for any information. Barb. S.
