    • Descendants of George Abbott, who emigrated from England, and d. in Rowley 1647, have been numerous in many places ; but the representation in this town has been limited in number. George Abbott, Jr., the eldest son of the emigrant, was also b. in England, and settled in Andover, where he md. 1658, Sarah Farnum. He d. Mar. 22, 1689, and his widow md. Aug. 1, 1689, Henry Ingalls, son of Edmund Ingalls, the emigrant. She d. May 12, 1728, aged 90. George and Sarah (Farnum) Abbott were the parents of thirteen children. Samuel, the youngest son, b. May 30, 1678, md. June 26, 1705, Joyce Rice, dau.of Edmund and Joyce (Russell) Rice, of Sudbury. He settled in Sudbury, where his children were b. His son, Samuel Abbott, Jr., b. Aug. 21, 1716, md. 1737, Abigail Mirick, and left nine children, and among them Samuel Abbott, Jr., who md. Martha Jennings, and removed to Framingham previous to the Revolution. He d. in Sherburne, of small-pox, 1791. His widow md. Noah Eaton, and d. in the autumn of 1834. The eldest son of Samuel and Martha Jennings Abbott, was Josiah, b. Sept. 26, 1775, md. Ruth Estabrook, of Holden. Resided in Framingham.

      GEORGE ABBOT, with three sons, 2 George, 2 Nehemiah, and 2 Thomas, emigrated from England. He d. in Rowley, A. D. 1647. 2 THOMAS, m. in Rowley, and d. 7 Sept. 1659, without issue.

      (I) George Abbott was probably born in England and died in 1647, in Rowley, Essex county, Massachusetts, where he had lived about five years after coming from England with his family about 1642, being one of the first settlers. The early records of Rowley are missing and not much is known of him. The inventory of his effects amounted to 95 2s. 8d. He had three children born in England : Thomas, died at Rowley, Massachusetts, September 5, 1659; George (see forward) ; Nehemiah.

      George Abbott, the immigrant ABBOTT ancestor, was probably born in England, and died in Rowley, Essex county, Massachusetts, in 1647. He was one of the first settlers there, coming about 1642 from England, with his family. The records of Rowley during the time he lived there are missing, so that not much has been found concerning him. His name was at the head of a list of fifty-nine whose house-lots were surveyed January 10, 1643. About twenty acres of land are recorded as belonging to him at that time, but he evidently owned much more than that. It is thought that the Thomas Jr. in his family was an adopted son. George Abbott died in 1647, ar>d after his death the court at Ipswich decided to put Thomas Jr. out as an apprentice to John Boynton for seven years, and guardians were appointedfor the children. Abbott left a will, according to the Massachusetts colonial records, which was referred by the general court to the Salem court, November II, 1647, but the will has not been found. The inventory of his estate was dated August 30, 1647. About three years after his death, Thomas Sr., his son, was eighth on the list of landowners, and was one of the leading proprietors and overseers, showing that his father must have owned a large amount of land. Children, born in England : Thomas Sr. ; George, mentioned below ; Nehemiah ; Thomas Jr.
