William Abbott was born c. 1785 as he was said to be aged 23 in court records for the Derbyshire Quarter Sessions dated 19th October 1819. William was sentenced to six months prison and seven years transportation to NSW, Australia. He was discribed as being from 'Stanton-by-Dale' but his native place was given as 'Staunton'. William Abbott was transported on the convict ship the 'Neptune' on 28th July 1820 and the passengers were forwarded to Paramata for distribution. William was listed as employed by Hannibal MacArthur on 9th December 1824 but I am do not know if this is the same 'William Abbott' born c.1785. William was granted a Certificate of Freedom dated 18th October 1826 in NSW seven years to the day after his conviction. Australia and he then disappears from records. He appears in NZ in about 1843 and married Sophia Viles (nee Follet) in 1845. Sophia was a widow. Her husband, William Vile, had died on the voyage to New Zealand on the 'Arab' in 1841.
William Abbott's occupation was that of a Butcher in Thornton Flat in New Zealand in 1849 and a publican in 1856 of Kaiwharawhara. but nothing is known of his life prior to being deported. William died in 1877 and his birthplace is given as Notts and his obituary states that he had been in 'New Zealand waters ' since the 1820's. It can be presumed William arrived in NZ between 1826-1829 from the time he became a free man and the comment on his obituary ....since the 1820's.
Emma Abbott (1851-1875) married Malcolm Burnett in 1874 but tragically she died during an Epileptic fit the following year. Emma and Malcolm had no children from their short marriage.
