Hi Elea5or,
Is there a baptism for the John Abel 1754 you mentioned? Or anywhere you know I can get early Presteigne parish records outside of the Record Office?
I'm interested in all early Abels of Presteigne & immediate area.
My line is complicated - my gt gt grandfather was registered at birth (1849) as Edward Thomas, son of Ann Thomas but he was brought up as son of George Roe/Vaughan/Abel & said Ann Thomas, and mostly known as John Abel.

Hi Elea5or,

You & I are on the same route then, though it's been a hard one to deduce! The 1923 death for John in Warwick area is correct as the son of Ann Thomas, he died at Mallory Court, Bishop's Tachbrook. I too think George Vaughan / Roe / Abel are one and the same, and he was certainly brought up as the son of John Abel (if only I knew if he was the biological son!) I have yet to find out where the name Roe came from.

I am also a tad confused by the switching of Abley's Green & Scotland St as residences and a seemingly odd combination of jobs for John Abel, father of George V/R/A - which is why I really need to see the Presteigne registers, just in case I have inadvertently confused two separate John Abels. Also I have different possible interpretations of the earliest Abel generations which need sorting - if possible without marriages to support.
