I have a Richard Abbott, born Welingore, Lincolnshire England, 1827, his fater was Thomas Abbott, his mother Sarah. Richard came to Australia in 1848, marrid Mary A.E. Hawkens in 1851. They had many children.There wasa George Abbott, aged 18, that came out with Richard, as they were both born at the same place and travelled together - I assume that they were brothers. I wonder if your Abbotts were a sibling to mine?
