Hi jdavidesgregor, I'm also looking for a connection to Hetty Abbott, but with a St. Kitts connection. So far no luck. I got my info from Generations.kn, and it's coming up a lot different than your, but it might still be a light wire, so follow up on that site and see if you can recognize any familiar names. (PS - It's best to just do a surname search, that way anyone associated with that surname will pop up.

Hi Bromaelor,

Thanks for replying to my post. I don't know if there is a connection to Wales, but the family does hail from England. I found direct line descendants connected to Dunston, Lincolnshire, England. I don't know exactly where they fit on my tree as yet, but I know that they tie into it, because we've been following the trail of activity for very specific members, including trip logs and boat manifests from St. Kitts, and they lead us to the doorsteps of many of them. As it turns out, Hetty, is an alias. The correct name is Henrietta. We found two Henerietta Abbotts connected to St. Kitts: Henrietta Phipps (DOB-Dec. 6, 1876 to Frances Phipps of Dieppe Bay, which is of note, because the Phipps surname is also genealogically connected to the Semper family. However, believe that the other one-Christina Henrietta Jones (DOB June 6, 1859), who's mother is Ruth Abbott of Mathews is more likely the direct-line ancestor to my mother's mother (Frances Semper) whose mother on record is simply listed as Mary Semper-Dieppe Bay.

Then I think you have posted to the wrong board? This is the Wales Board. You might want to re-post to the England or the Yorkshire Board (for Sheffield)?
