the EBBETTs from Cornwall to New Zealand
Needing a bit of help for this family tree...
William Wilkins EBBETT married Ann HARRIS

He served in the Armed Constabulary, later settling on a dairy farm in Woodville where he was the local milkman delivering milk to everyone in Woodville.

They didn`t have children of their own but brought up the children of his brother William who died shortly after the death of his wife Mary Ann KIRK (mother of the children)
