George Mutlow Abell was my ggggrandfather. I have not yet been able to go back further than Joseph and Mary and have no evidence other than the IGI. George was a solicitor and had several children. I have details on most of them. You will find a lot of the infoon Phil Preens web page (http://www.parallax.co.uk/~philipp/genealogy/FamilyHistory.htm) though the page was down last time I tried to access it. Phil is also related to George and living in England has much greater access to records than I do in Australia. Feel free to contact me for further details.
