Fanny Waiscoat

Fanny (along with her sister Phillis) was almost certainly the one of the two unnamed children traveling with Molly Westcott aboard L'abondance - also on this ship was Joseph Westcott and another son Sharp or Sharper. By the time of the Birchtown the family was calling themselves, or were written up as being 'Waiscoat'. Fanny has a line through her name in this later list - this could indicate that she has died but this is not clear.
