Abraham Seaboy/Sabey Abt 1841-1922
The documented life of Abraham Sabey is a great example of how the name Sabey has evolved and changed through a single generation, depending upon how the clerks wrote it down.


Abraham Seaboy was born in Croydon cum Clopton in Cambridgeshire, England and christened on April 17th 1842. His parents were William Seaboy and Mary nee Westrope.


In the 1841 census the family are listed with the surname Seabey. They still reside in Croydon cum Clopton.


In the 1851 census the family are mistranscribed as Peary, although closer inspection of the handwriting shows it to spell Seaby.


In 1861 Abraham is lodging in Great Eversden, Cambridgeshire and the spelling is not clear, it could read Sabey, but it has been transcribed as Sabez.


In 1865, Abraham married Charlotte Goates at Caxton, Cambridgeshire and the record is for Seabey.


By 1871, they are living in Meldreth, Cambridgeshire and their surname is spelt Sabey. They have one son, Thomas born in 1867 in Cambridgeshire.


The record for 1881 cannot be found, which indicates that the spelling is quite obscure or mistranscribed.


In 1891, the census reads Sabey, by now they have three children, Thomas, Ada and Francis. They have moved to Ridgmont Bedfordshire.


The 1901 census cannot be located, another different transcription or spelling perhaps?


By the time of the 1911 census, Abraham is a widower living in Highgate, London, with the surname Saby.


When Abraham died in 1922, his name is registered as Abraham Seaboy. The name has gone full circle back to its origins. So, what was his surname? The Y-DNA project could determine if he is related to any other Sabey surname holders by comparing the profile of any of his direct male line descendants with the Sabey profiles already held.


It is thought his living descendants are now called Sabey.

Chancery pleadings addressed to Sir Thomas Audley as Lord Chancellor: Maybott v Saby. The only reference so far to John Saby as Lord of the Manor of Finedon. His entitlement is a mystery. In the process of being transcribed.
Plaintiffs: Thomas Maybott of Wold, husbandman, and Joan, his wife, daughter and heir of William Smyth.
Defendants: John Saby and Thomas, his son.
Subject: Land demised by complainants in the said John's manor of Finedon. Northampton
Sir Thomas Audley became Chancellor in 1533 and Lord Audley in 1538, therefore as he is titled Sir at the top of the document, it must be dated between these years.

PUBLIC BRIDLE ROADS, of the Width of sixteen Feet.
One from the Turnpike-Road leading from Wellingborough to Thrapston, at the Top of the South Avenue, in the Track the same now goes, to the Entrance of Irthlingborough Field, near Stone-Cross.
One from the Isham Bridge Road, at the North Side of Lamport-Way Furlong, in a Westwardly direction over Windmill-Hollow Leys, over an ancient Inclosure called Debdale, and over Saby’s Leys and Harrowden-Plank Piece, to the Bridge leading into Little Harrowden Inclosure.
One out of the last-described Road, on Saby’s Leys, to Finedon Mill.

Also in Finedon, Northamptonshire, England, there were features called "Sabie's Piece" and "Sabie's Slade", a clear indication that the Saby/Sabie family were local landowners at some point.

Three generation of curly hair.  It would be fun to see if we can identify a characteristic that has been passed down through the generation. Ours is curly hair, let me know yours.
Three generation of curly hair. It would be fun to see if we can identify a characteristic that has been passed down through the generation. Ours is curly hair, let me know yours.
It has emerged that curly hair is a characteristic of many of the Sabey family in Provo, Utah. Along with the Bolnhurst branch descendants who are not connected with the Utah branch either via the documented records or the Y-DNA, that's two branches with the same characteristic, are there any more?
