Now that we have established that Ann is the daughter of Edwin/Edward Abbot and Esther Taylor and that this couple separated before Edwin died in 1877 I have given some time to try to find Esther. There is a marriage as follows:
Year: 1873
Month: Aug
Day: 9
Grooms_Surname: BURGUM
Grooms_Forenames: James
Grooms_Age: full
Groom_Condition: Widower
Grooms_Occupation: Labourer

Brides_Occupation: [not stated]
Brides_Residence: Cinderford
Brides_Fathers_Surname: Taylor
Brides_Fathers_Forenames: Richard
Brides_Fathers_Occupation: Labourer

Witness_2: Ann Aldridge
Officiating_Minister: G.A. Allan Vicar
Event: Marriage
Register_Reference: P85/1 IN 1/5
Page_Number: 98
Parish_Chapel: Cinderford St John

I have yet to find them in the 1881 Census and thereby confirm this marriage is relevant. However there is an entry in Gloucester Prison records as follows:
Name: Esther Burgum
Age: 64
Record Type: Nominal Prisoners' Registers
Birth Year: abt 1819
Birth Place: Whitadiffe (should read Whitecliffe)
Conviction or Committal Date: 13 Apr 1883
Gaol or Prison: The County Gaol
Gaol or Prison Place: Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England
Discharge Date: 26 Apr 1883

Esther's age does not match. Perhaps there is a Newspaper Report that may be helpful?
