Hi again, Lesley,
I just KNOW that we are linked through Edward and Ann somehow! Here are my notes on "my" Edward Mabbot family:
<The following is taken from the genealogy report of Mary Henry: Edward Mabbott was born in Nottinghamshire, England and died in England. He married Elizabeth ????. She was born 1770 in Lincolnshire England and died aft. 1841.
Our Mabbott ancestors originated in England. the name Mabbott is derived from the Latin world "ambalis" which means "lovable". As one studies the records, obituaries and news items which have been saved, the descendants have proved worthy of their name, showing love and concern for family and friends. The earliest ancestor we know of is Edward.
Born in Nottinghamshire or Lincolnshire area of England, probably in the late 1760's, Edward was the father of Sarah, Elizabeth, Richard, John, and Christopher, our ancestor. Just where Edward lived and when these children were born has not been determined. Parish records from Carlton Scroop in Lincolnshire show marriages of Elizabeth to George Squires in 1821 and Sarah to John Munton in 1823. John married Mary Potterton in 1830 at Leasingham; Richard married Mary Wright in 1823 in Billinghay, Lincolnshire. the youngest, Christopher, was married to Mary Ann Springthorpe; both members of Exton Parish, Rutland shire England in 1830.
The Mabbotts came to America in March, 1845.
The family was located in Rutland, England in the 1841 census.
From Bill Klosterman's file, genealogy from Diane (Lyle) Mabbott of Canada, she shows Edward Mabbott's birthplace as Little Genavie, Lincolnshire, England.
The dates/locations of Edward and family are from Mary Henry who gave me a copy of a paper she got from Nettie or Myrtle Mabbott who wrote that they had been copied from the old Mabbott Bible.>
You said that "Redmile is a village close to Grantham, Lincs, although it is in Leicestershire. It is close to the border of 3 counties, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire, and just a mile up the road is Belvoir Castle, seat of the Dukes of Rutland." Could Grantham be the birthplace of our Edward?
I don't know anything bout the counties and towns and villages there, but from the information I have (above), it just sounds like this IS the place?
Mary Henry, Rae Sordahl and Diane & Lyle Mabbott had given me a lot of the information I have on "our" Edward. If you folks are "lurking" on the list, can you respond to any of this information? (See information below on how to subscribe...just in case you forgot).

Yes, Ann MABBBOT of Redmile was the widow of Edward. He died 14 Feb 1901 in
an accident with his hay cart. I have copies of the newspaper reports of
the inquest, which are full of detail, even verbatim accounts of witnesses'
Ann was a BIRCH, a family who were tenant farmers of the Duke of Rutland for
many generations. Edward was born in Carlton Scroop, Lincs, in 1851, the
son of Edward, who in the 1851 Census said he was born c1806 at "Debdill
Barr", Nottingham. I have not yet found where this place is and I have
tried! Edward Sr was the son of Richard Mabbbot and his wife, Elizabeth.
Richard died in Carlton Scroop in 1837, aged 73.
I know a great deal about the BIRCHes but am stuck on the MABBOTTs. Ann and
Edward were my hsuband's gt-grandparents.
I expect the link you found to Ann on the 1901 Census was on Linda
Brockway's website. Linda lives in Redmile and is a hugely enthusiastic
family and village historian and I know her quite well. Any information she
posts will have been checked properly and can therefore be believed. She is a stickler for accuracy.
Redmile is a village close to Grantham, Lincs, although it is in Leicestershire. It is close to the border of 3 counties, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire, and just a mile up the road is Belvoir Castle, seat of the Dukes of Rutland.
Perhaps I should do a Google for more Mabbotts?
Thanks, Sally Jo.

were from subjects in England and in Canada. If anyone out there has some
extra time, go to google.com and then type in Mabbott and see for yourself.
If you find something interesting, please let the rest of us know.
> I found a link to a 1901 census of "Leics Redmile". I know it's over
there "across the pond", but have not idea where. It ists a Ann Mabbott,
age 45 as head of household. Lesley, do you know anything about this census
or this place?
