red mail Looking for my great grandmother
Abbot, Abbott I am looking for information about my great grandmother Ellen ABBOT supposedly born in Little Dawley in Shropshire. She married Robert AGAR in 1881 and her marriage certificate confirms that her father was a James Abbot. In 1901(census details) she was living in Middlesbrough, Yorkshire, gave her age as 44 born approx. 1857 and her birthplace as 'Dawley' (other censuses give her birthplace as Madeley and Ironbridge). Family legend says she had auburn hair; went into service at age nine(9) years; there is some memory of the town of Broseley. Any information gratefully received as we can find no Ellen Abbot or Abbott (or various permutations of the name) of her approximate age in any available lists etc.
