ABRAHAM CANT to ELIZABETH ROBERTS both single and of this parish by banns 21 sept 1813
witness Jeremaih Buggles/Ruggles ( he was witness to lots of marriages so was probably a church warden) and Elizabeth Cant.
children of ABRAHAM AND ELIZABETH CANT
Elizabeth 24 oct 1813
Abraham 19 Nov 1815
Mary 19 April 1818
James 20 Aug 1820
John 5 Jan 1823
Sarah 7 Aug 1825
Hannah 3 Feb 1828
William 31 Oct 1830
Joseph 22 sept 1833
Marriage of ABRAHAM CANT to LUCY BULL 15 Jan 1836
John this could be your lot. Ther is no Henry though but not to say he is not there. The fisrst time i was sent these deatils the last 2 children were missing. When the lady went back and looked she found them. I would say Lucy has not finished children yet as that only accounts for 7 years (not bad 6 kids in 7 years).
My interest in this family is that i am trying to find a William who came to Australia in 1850. He lists his father as Abraham or Edward (on 2 different certs) so i am hunting. I think someone is going to look at the 1841 census for me also. Not sure how i am going to determine my William unless someone in the family in England remembers Uncle William who went to Australia.
This family is looking like the one but who knows whether i will ever priove it. If you know any oldies there i would love you to ask them the question.
Are you in England? If so i would love a copy of addresses for all Cants in and around Mt BUres.
Hope this info helps you cos i think it is probably your lot.
