We do not know a lot about William Absolon, partly because it was a common name in Wallingford.  He would appear to have been married, almost indubitably to Elizabeth Henrietta, (see below) and they had more than one daughter Susanna (another common Absolon name in Wallingord.)

Hastings and St Leonards Observer - Saturday 27 April 1889
Hackebarth-Absolon - April 21st, at St. Vedast Foster, London, by the Rev. D. F. Heywood, M.A., Hermann Hackebarth, of Berlin, to Susanna, eldest daughter of the late William Absolon, Marina, St. Leonards-on-Sea.

1891 shows Absolons living at 50 Marina

A newspaper search for Hackebarth returns only three results, all in the Hastings & St Leonards Observer.

On 16th February 1906 Elizabeth Henrietta Absolon died in St. Leonards.  Her beneficiaries were Susanna Hackebarth and Annie Louisa Absolon.

She is buried at EJ L19 (wrongly recorded as Absolom); the stone has collapsed.
