I had a wide band of relations from Dundee, and my Grandmothers family came from Dundee to Fife, Sarah Ferrol Abbot born 1885, married to Andrew Easton born 1880. I also had "Uncles & Aunts" of which I am sorry to say I know very little, even though we spent many holidays there. Jenny Jackson was hit by a tram when she was young and spent the rest of her life with one leg, Andy & Nellie Jackson were frequent visiters to FIfe for holidays, and there was an Aunt Meg, an Aunt Nell, and Aunty Teen and probably a lot more that I know little of, Bill Abbot was the latest of previously lost relations in Dundee that I have been able to contact for Information. If any of this sounds familiar get in touch, we may be able to help each other.

Surnames: Abbot James, Forbes Isabel, Abbot Sarah, Abbot William
We have managed to trace my wife's grandfather James Abbots
family from Meigle Perthshire 1762 to, Perth, Dundee
Falmouth and South Africa. We only have one Sarah born in
Dundee in 1875 died in child birth on 27/7/1896 in Dundee.
However it is not inconcievable that she is related to your
Sarah, to research this we would need to know your who
Sarah's parents were. We also have found two William Abbots
but both were born in Perth.

Robert,

I am also descended from James Abbot (b. 9 Aug 1823 --
d. 1854) who married Isabel Forbes (b. 8 Oct 1842).
As far as I know, they had 5 children: James 1843, Mary
1845, Archibald 1847, John 1850, & Alexander 1853.

Mary was my gg grandmother...my maternal grandfathers'
paternal grandmother.

I would love to exchange information with you ...please contact me.

Hi Jan,

Nice to hear from you. Your Mary's father, James Abbot was the brother of my gggrandfather William Abbot, born in Perth,4/2/1827. The details I have are that Mary was the second of five children. Her first marriage was to Peter McGibbon. Her second marriage was to James Brown.
I have traced this family tree back to the marriage of Thomas Abbot and Agnes Bennet on 4/4/1762 in Meigle, Perthshire.
I can supply a copy of this tree by post. I do not have 100 per cent of the details and one or two facts may be not fully accurate, but they are as good as I can get them at the moment. I am still trying to fill the gaps. Maybe you can help. Look forward to hearing from you.

Yours,
Evelyn & Robert Wilkie

Hi Evelyn & Robert,

Exactly right.....my gg grandparents were Mary Abbot &
Peter McGibbon. My great grandfather was their youngest
child, David.
I also have the family tree back to Thomas Abbot &
Agnes Bennat m. 1762......although most of what I have
was done by another distant cousin, I have been able to
fill in some gaps.
If you would like to contact me, my email address is
Jets80@telocity.com so I can give you additional
contact information.

Hope to hear from you soon,
Jan
