Hi Wallace Badcock, I am a descendant of Robert & Emma ABLETT who arrived in South Australia from Cambridgeshire on the JOSEPH ROWAN 18 Jun 1854.
Robert ABLETT b. c1820 & Emma b. c1825 arrived with children Alice b. c1852 and Harriett.
As you are probably aware William & Sarah ABLETT (nee BADCOCK) arrived in South Australia from Cambridgeshire the year before on the STANDARD with children Elizabeth, John, Joseph, Keziah and William.
I suspect that William (Husb of Sarah) was the elder brother of Robert (Husb of Emma).
I note that you have evidence for Baptisms for children of William & Mary ABLETT as William 1803, John 1806, Elizabeth 1808, Hannah 1810, John 1813, Sarah 1816, Robert 1819, Thomas 1822. This Robert is the right age to be my G G Grand Father.
My question is, do you have evidence that might help establish whether this Robert is the one I'm looking for, such as ... a) details of the marriage of your Robert ABLETT to Emma Someone? b) the Baptisms of your Robert ABLETT's children?
Finally, you may be interested to know that the grave of Sarah ABLETT (nee BADCOCK) is only a few plots from the grave of Robert & Emma ABLETT, their son John & 2 of their infant children in the Hindmarsh Cemetery near inner Adelaide, South Australia. Robert & Emma have plot 57 in row O whilst Sarah appears to be the only occupant of plot 53 in row M.
Your help would be appreciated. Richard Hartley, Adelaide, South Australia
