I would like to add more information about the Abraham brothers - CWR Abraham (my grandfather), Jasper Abraham and Mike Abraham. The three of them farmed in Molo and were sons of Bishop Charles Thomas (CT) Abraham, Bishop of Derby and Mary Theresa Furse.

The Bishop's eldest son, Charles Wellington Rupert Abraham was my grandfather. My mother, Martina Chepsongol Abraham - Cheboryot, born in 1916, was his first of four daughters born to his Nandi wife (my maternal grandmother, Katrina Kesumo.

This is a photo of my maternal grandfather - Charles Thomas Abraham, who was bishop of Derby (See Wikipedia). He was born in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1857 - the only son of Charles John Abraham and his wife Caroline (nee Palmer, of Wanlip Hall, Leicestershire). Charles John Abraham was consecrated as the first Anglican bishop of Wellington, having gone out to New Zealand in 1850 at the invitation of his friend and colleague, George Augustus Selwyn,(after whom Selwyn College, Cambridge is named).

Charles Thomas Abraham married Mary Theresa Furse (daughter of another Anglican clergyman who was Dean of Westminster (I think). They had 10 children - my mother, Delia, being the youngest of five daughters. She was born in 1902 when her father was the Vicar of Bakewell, Derbyshire.
