It has just come to light that the Aber family currently living in the UK and Australia are almost certainly descendants of the Abear or A'Bear family of Wargrave, Berkshire. John Aber born c1835 emigrated to Australia in Dec 1853. His father was William Aber born c1800 at Fulmer, Buckinghamshire, otherwise known as William Bear. William's father was William Abear born 1774 at Wargrave, Berkshire but who grew up in Buckinghamshire. Further information is available by request. I read a message from Kath Kellett posted nine years ago who was trying to trace her ancestors but I have been unable to contact her. email returned. Her maiden name was Aber. Perhaps any Kellett family members may like to contact me or anyone else who thinks they link up in some way?
