I am researching FRANCIS ELLIOT/ELIOT -- TWO of them!I have a Francis Elliot who married 14 Jun 1686, Abigail NICHOLS (born 1665, daughter of John NICHOLS).They had 8 children: Abigail, Francis, Hannah, John, Thomas, Mary, Rebeckah (all before 1705), and Joseph 1707.I need parents/ancestry, siblings, descendants of this Francis and Abigail.(I descend from him on my Mother’s father’s father’s side.)
Would like to know if there is a connection to Francis ELLIOT/ELIOT (born 10 April 1615 Naezing, Essex, ENG, died 17 January 1677 Braintree, Norfolk, MA), son of Bennett and Letticia (AGGAR) ELLIOT and brother to John ELLIOT, the Apostle to the Indians.He married Mary (SAUNDERS) – born 16 August 1619 Sudbury ENG, died 17 January 1697 Billerica, MA., daughter of Martin and Rachel (unknown) SAUNDERS. They had 6 children: Mary (1641), Rachel (1643), John (1650), Hannah (1651), Mary (1653), Abigail (1659).I need ancestry of Bennett and Letticia.(I descend from my Mother’s father’s mother’s side on this Francis Elliot).
