My family starts in Lancashire england and My grand parents and great grandparents were brought up in New Zealand.
I have found that the abbott family is a large family.
My great grand father William Robert Abbott was born 1867 Lancashire england, and died 1900 in Christchurch New Zealand falling from a fire truck hitting his head. They could not revive him at the scene.
William married Rosanne gertrude Evans and had eight children two died the year of birth and a third drowned . At the time of Williams death five children were separated as Roseanna could not support them so they including my grand father victor abbott were put into an orphanage. Rosanne died in 1919 after a long illness. I have no photos or many details on her but would be happy to know more about her.
Victor abbott my grand father was a happy joke full type of person and was born in 1892 in Christchurch New Zealand and died in Gisborne 1967 . I have minimal memories of him just chasing me around the house and joking with me. Victor fought in world war 1 and married ada Beatrice Edmonds born 1906 and died in 1986, they had nine children one child died the first year of life. One being my dad Raymond Spencer abbott born 1931 died 2019 all other of ada and victors children have passed now except for Stanley abbott.
Ada and victor had over 25 grand children.
My dad Raymond Spencer abbott, was a jack of all trades and worked many jobs his last being a cook for air NZ . Ray married my mum Rona theresa Pell born 1928 died 1973 in Auckland hospital 45 years old. I have an immense amount of data on the Pell side of the family.
