It seems quite probable that either of those Abrahams could be the one I'm after. As I said all I know is that Henry Cant of Mt Bures (b 1847) , on his marriage certificate quotes his father as Abraham Cant. Do you have any thing on the descendants of the 2 Abraham that would help. I have never been able to find a birth certificate for my Henry in the general index so haven't go much to go on. I have his Army discharge papers that just confirm his birth date and place but nothing of his parents.
