I am searching for info on William Abbott who was born 1784-1796 with 1795-6 the more likely. He was convicted in the Derby Quarter Sessions on 19/10/1819 of stealing two barn fowls, and sentenced to 6 months imprisonment and 7 years transportation to NSW. He was described as aged 23, late of Stanton-by-Dale, but his 'native place' was given as Staunton. On his death certificate in 1877 his birthplace is given as Notts. There are a several William Abbotts listed as butchers in Derbyshire, is it coincidence that 'my' William was also to become a butcher in NZ in later life?
