Hi, I am not really sure if this is my family or not (well its not mine in any case as I am doing my research for a friend who is not online) I have only started to search for these Abey's this week, and its looking rather cold I must say.
This thing that interests me is that the family I am searchign from come from there. I don't, however, know if it is the same one.
here is what I have, and if you think it is the same family, then please let me know.
I have a William Abey married to Rosemond Blunsome in 1880. William Abey was born on 12th May 1852 in Kirton on Lindsey, Lincolnshire. Rosemons was born in Worcester on 23rd December 1837. Williams parents were John Abey and Susan. John was born in 1812 in Kirton and susan...I dont know. Johns parents were William Abey and elizabeth. They had one other child called Spring Abey, who was born in July 1818 in Barnetby le Wold.(not sure if it is a she or a he actually, as on the 1881 there are more boys than girls called spring in that area...so your guess is as good as mine) As I havent got any further than this, and have not yet even been able to start to look and see if there are any brothers or sisters for the above people, its hard to tell if this realtes yet, but please bear me in mind. If it is able to be preserved it will be a good idea. How remarkable to come across it! My email address is email@example.com if you want to contact me. I will tell my friend steve about it. I have finished my family tree now (well as far as I can go really other than gathering other branches) so I have decided to do those peoples trees that interest me. Abey is a very curious surname...
