Hi Justin

There is probably quite a bit  found on CCA  - but to save us time searching for stuff you already know, perhaps you could be a bit more specific on what you want to find out.

Cheers

Dear Ambly,

That is a good question, I want to know when he was born and when he died, where he was born and died, what are his parents and did he marry and how many children he had.

Thanks, Justin

Re: Captain Pack The Falklands approximate 1860 (Charles Compton Abbott)

Dear all,

Searched the Internet, but still failed to find more details on Captain Charles Compton Abbott, except that he joined the army by 1842, went in 1857 to 1860 to the Falklands, and eventually marry Jane Elizabeth Prosser (x-1900), on 21 November 1861. He retired in the rank of major by 1 October 1875. But still fail to find the dates of birth and death. Any help is very welcome.

Yours, Justin

Thanks for this, I found out he was 63 years old when he died, so he must be born in 1824.

Made the wrong assumption that he was married with Jane Elizabeth Prosser (x-1900), on 21 November 1861. Think this is another Abbott. Think our CC Abbott should be born in the UK, as the Australian one, died in Australia....
