Yes thanks that is the convict record I saw. So it sounds as if that ?Abraham died on the way to Australia does it. (My geography is a bit off, would that be right, Bermuda on the way to Oz?

I guess I will never be able to get proof whether it was my Abraham then. Unless anyone has any suggestions.

The ship's name is Bermuda rather than it going to/coming from Bermuda (I think)....It went to Tasmania as a convict ship...according to went via Chatham (I assume Kent) but cant see where it departed from originally....

Aah right sorry :-D that makes more sense. I shall always wonder if it was him now, but Ellen must have known she was widowed because she returned alone and remarried in 1850.

None of this explains the French Connection (excuse the pun) though. If Seth didn't state he was born in france british subject I would think that maybe they had gone to Hampshire not France. But anyway, grasping at straws I suppose and it could have been another Abraham entirely. :-(
