Effe Paul

Effe is the child of Abby and John Paul - and the sister of Peter. Unlike her brother - (described in the Book of Negroes as being 'a boy' aged seven traveling with his mother) Effe by contrast is not mentioned at all. This is unusual it is not known how she came to be with her 'family' in Birchtown or how she got there. It is possible that on such a large ship as L'abondance she was missed.
