Objective of Freespace Profile

  • To assign Character names to distinguish one William Abbot from another in the inter-generational chain of William Abbots.
  • This page is (will be) a list of the William Abbot Details.

Differentiating Williams

There have been at least seven generations of William Abbots in a row. Initially, a system of using numbers; such as 2nd, 3rd, 4th was used to distinguish them from each other. On two occasions an earlier William Abbot was found, which meant the numbers needed to be reassigned, which had the potential to cause even more confusion. Therefore at least until we know the "Williams" a little better, the assignment of a character name can be used for "distinction".
