I have a book that has information on the ABELL family that lived in the County of Derby, England. There were several branches living there in the 16th century, One branch lived in Creighton and Uttoxeter. The brothers John and Richard Abell were progenitors of this branch.Henry Abell who died in 1540 was the earliest known of another branch that lived in Sommersall. The third branch of the Abell family lived in Norbury. The earliest founder of this branch was Nicholas Abell, who died about 1557. Most of the American ABELL's are descendants of Robert ABELL, who lived in Stapenhill, also in the county of Derby.
The book lists info and descendants of Robert ABELL. I can send you the info if you would like.
