Descendants of

John Abbe





12 Generations

following the line ending with Darrell Abbey




1-John Abbe-[302] was born about 1587 in West Halton, Lincolnshire County, England. 


Noted events in his life were:


1.  Place of Birth.  The place of birth of John Abbe, the founder of the American Abbe and Abbey families, is unknown, but every indication points to one of the interior and central counties of England as the home of the ancestors of the emigrant. It is not improbable that he was connected with the Abbye family of Staverton, Northampton. The parish registers of Stoke Bruerne, Northampton, show that there were many marriages of Abbyes recorded there during the 16th and 17th centuries.


John Abbe is John Abbe Jr's father. As far as we know, John Abbe never came to America.


John married  in England.


2-John Abbe Jr.-[291] was born on 15 Oct 1613 in Norwich, Norfolk, England and died about 1689 in Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts. 


Noted events in his life were:


1.  Name Change; 1613.  When John Abbe was born, the family decided to add Junior (Jr.) to the end of his name.

2.  Immigration; 1635.  The Abbey individuals who left their homes for life in the New World were undoubtedly courageous. Research through numerous reference books and genealogy software by Alan Roy Abbey and his wife, Leah, containing ships passenger lists, genealogical registers, and other official records led to the discovery of our early Abbey immigrants. It is through this research that we believe John Abbe Jr. entered America through one of the following ports of entry.


1. It is possible that John Abbe Jr. came to America in 1635 aboard the ship MERCHANT BONAVENTURE which sailed from London, England in January, 1635. The port of entry for this ship was Virginia. Exact place is unknown. More than likely it was either Jamestown, Hampton, or Norfolk. The ships passenger log lists a John Abbe, age 22, as a passenger.



2. It is also possible that John Abbe Jr. arrived in Salem, Massachusetts in 1634. The book "Immigrants to America before 1750", prepared by Frederick Adams Virkus, editor, shows a John Abbe entering the New World at that time. The name of the ship and John Abbe's age was not listed.


The estimated population in the Colonies in 1630, was 4,800. The population in 1650 was estimated to be 52,000.


The first mention of John Abbe Jr., was found on a register of the names of all the passengers which passed from the Ports of London for a whole year ending at Xmas 1635. It reads - “Those underwritten are to be transported to Virginia imbarcued in ye Mercht Bonaventure James Ricrofte Mr. Bound Thither have taken ye oath of allegeance - John Abbe years 22. Although this statement says bound for Virginia, it is a well known fact that many of the early ships destined for Virginia landed many or all of their passengers at other ports, even in New England, and records with the name John Abbe Jr. begin in New England about that time. John Abbe Jr., does not appear in the records of Virginia, nor in the Head Rights for lower Norfolk from 1637 to 1666.”


The first reference to John Abbe Jr. in Salem, Massachusetts, is recorded on page II, volume 1, of the land records for 1637. It reads - “John Abbe Jr. is recorded a refered inhabitant and is to have one acre lott for a house next to and beyond the gunsmiths, and 3 acres of planting ground where the Towne had appointed beyond Castle Hill.”

3.  Land Grant; 21 Nov 1639.  The records for the grants to John Abbe Jr., show that he was of the same standing in the community as the great majority of the early inhabitants. The grants were in a great measure made with an eye as to the ability of the grantee to develop the land so granted, small grants to the poorer and the larger grants to the richer sort.


John Abbe Jr. had a further grant of five acres. It reads - “Granted unto John Abbey Jr. 5 acres neere to Mr. Throgmortons hoggehouse.”

4.  Land Grant; 23 Nov 1642.  John Abbe Jr. received another grant for ten acres together with several other ten-acre grants, all to be laid out near the Kings lot. This was on the Beverly side near Bass River. On December 15, 1642, it was voted and ordered that John Abbe Jr. shall have 10 acres of land at Enon in exchange for 10 acres of land bounded out near Bass River. In 1643, the name Enon was changed to Wenham, Massachusetts.

5.  Land Grant; 13 Jun 1644.  It was agreed that John Abbe Jr. shall have all the wasteland which lies between the end of the lot which he lives upon and the meadow which belongs to the town, leaving a poles breath most convenient pathway.

6.  Disposal of Estate; 1653, Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts.  John Abbey's Disposal of his Estate 1653 Record In the Registrars office for probate of Will for the County of Essex

Before John Appleton “

7.  Land Grant; 16 Nov 1661.  John Abbe Jr. and Edward Waldron received a town grant for land to be equally divided between them. (This grant and all of the above grants can be located in the Wenham, Essex, Massachusetts's town records)

8.  Employment; 1669.  In 1669 and again in 1671, John Abbey Jr. appeared as constable, an office of great local power and responsibility.


John married Mary Lorring-[292] [MRIN:103] about 1635 in Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts.  (Mary Lorring-[292] was born about 1615-1620 in England and died on 9 Sep 1672 in Wenham, Massachusetts.)


3-John Abbe-[293] was born in 1636 in Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts and died on 11 Dec 1700 in Windham, CN. 


3-Sarah Abbe-[294] was born about 1638-1640 in Massachusetts. 


3-Mariah Abbe-[295] was born in 1642 in Massachusetts. 


3-Obadiah Abbe-[296] was born about 1647 in Windham, CN and died on 28 Oct 1732 in Enfield, CN. 


Noted events in his life were:


1.  Wealth.  One of their sons, Obadiah Abbe, seems to have been a prominent and influential man within the community. He was constable between 1682 and 1717, surveyor of highways in 1692, and assessor in 1702. Obadiah Abbe's holdings in Enfield, Connecticut are described in the Enfield probate records: Home lot of 12 acres; 23 acres in the south field, eastern division; 7 acres upon Schantuck River, 5 acres of it upland and 2 acres meadow land; 2 acres of meadow upon a small brook easterly from the "grate meadow"; 4 acres of meadow by a grant of March 5, 1700; and a farm lying west of Schantuck grate meadow, consisting of 168 acres, some of the boundaries of which were designated by Oak Tree's marked with the letters O.A. (O.A. stands for Obadiah Abbe)

Obadiah Abbe was apprenticed to Richard Goldsmith to learn his trade of shoemaker, and that he served Goldsmith three years from his eighteenth year. As Goldsmith died in 1673, this places the date of Obadiah's birth approximately. He was an early settler of Enfield on the eighth lot from the south corner, east side, one of the original proprietors in 1682. In 1685 he was engaged in a lawsuit with Isaac Meacham. At Northampton is the will of Obadiah Abbey, dated September 22, 1732; probated November 14, 1732. He names as legatees his wife, Sarah, to whom is given maintenance, all household goods and moveables; his cousin (nephew) Thomas, son of his brother Thomas, to whom is given his Scantic lot, and to the former Thomas' son, Obadiah, house and land, with reversion to his youngest son, Thomas, if the said Obadiah should die; to the last-named, Phebe Heal; his cousin John Abbey's oldest son, John. His cousin, Thomas Abbey, and Elizabeth Warriner are made executors. This Elizabeth Warriner was presumablv the step-daughter of his wife, who was born in 1686.


Obadiah married Sarah Tibbals-[297] [MRIN:104] after 1697 in Enfield, CN.


Noted events in her life were:


1.  Marriage.  She was the daughter of Thomas Tibbals of Milford. Her first husband was Daniel Collins, by whom she had children, and she married second Joseph Warriner of Enfield, who died 1697. Obadiah Abbe had no children, so far as is known.


3-Rebecca Abbe-[298] was born in 1647 in Wenham, Massachusetts and died in Jun 1704 in Enfield, CN. 


3-Samuel Abbe-[273] was born in 1650 in Wenham, Essex, Massachusetts and died on 8 Mar 1697 in Windham County, Windham, CN. 


Noted events in his life were:


1.  Church; 1674.  Samuel and his wife Mary, were communicants of the church in Wenham in 1674.

2.  Land; 3 Apr 1675.  Samuel Abbe first appears in the Wenham, Essex, Massachusetts records at the time of his marriage. He received a grant of ten acres of land in Wenham, to set his house upon, from his father, John Abbe Jr., and his mother, Mary Loring, on April 3, 1675. (Recorded in the Essex Deeds, 15:150)

3.  Land; 3 Apr 1675.  John Abbe Jr. deeded 10 acres of land to his son Samuel.

4.  Employment; 1676.   He was a land surveyor in 1676 and appears upon the town records as a husbandman, made freeman, October 3, 1680. (Massachusetts Records, 5:540)

5.  Will; 1683.  He  was named in his father's will in 1683.

6.  Land; 1692, Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts.  A map of Salem dwellings in 1692, published in Volume I of the book, Salem Witchcraft, written by Charles Upham, 1867 Reprint, shows the location of Samuel Abbe's house, number 114 on a plot in the south-west part, east of Bald Hill, within the 500 acres laid out to Robert Goodell in 1652 and its subsequent additions

7.  Legal Proceedings; Jul 1692, Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts.  Samuel Abbe was living in Salem during the days of witchcraft and was one of those opposed to its fanaticisms. One Rebecca Nourse, (could also be spelled Nurse) on trial as a witch, produced a paper signed by several "respectable inhabitants" of Salem, among whom was Samuel Abbe. This document as to her good character caused her to be set at liberty but the sentence was later changed and she was put to death as a witch. In 1913, a monument to her memory was erected by her descendants.


Research shows Samuel Abbe was present, as a witness, for the following trials, one of which he brought the charges:


REBECCA NOURSE OR NURSE - The mother of eight children was 71 years old when she was hanged on Gallows Hill with four other women, July 19, 1692. She had been one of Salem Village's most respected and religious citizens, so much so that the magistrates hesitated in delivering the warrant for her arrest. A petition was drawn up and signed on May 14, 1692, by most of the richest and most influential people, such as Israel Porter (his name appears first), Daniel Andrews, SAMUEL ABBE, and 34 others. This petition speaking of her good character was sent to Governor Sir William Phipps who responded with a temporary reprieve. When the reprieve ran out, she was tried and found not guilty, but at the verdict, the accusing girls fell into such violent fits that the jury was instructed to reconsider. The jury foreman, allowed to question Rebecca, got no response from the old women who apparently could not hear his questions over the noise of the girls. Her silence, apparently, was taken as a sign of guilt for the jury returned with a verdict of guilty. After she was hanged, Rebecca was buried in such a shallow grave on Gallows rocky hill that some body parts remained exposed. Her family came in the dark of night, collected her remains, and reburied her on the family's homestead.


MARY EASTY - Samuel Abbe testified and said that on the 20th of May 1692, he went to the house of Constable John Putnam about 9 o' clock in the morning. When he arrived, Mercy Lewis lay on the bed in a sad condition and continuing speachless for about an hour. A group of hysterical girls said that a disembodied image of Mary Easty was pinching them. Shortly thereafter, Abigail Williams and Mrs. Ann Putnam arrived. They said that as they were coming along the way they saw the apparition of Mary Easty. Both of them said that the apparition of Mary Easty told them that she was afflecting of Mercy Lewis, and when they arrived at John Putnam's house, both of them said they saw the apparition of Mary Easty afflecting the body of Mary Lewis. Mary Easty was arrested, tried for witchcraft, and sentenced to prison. She was eventually released from prison. Yet, due to the outcries and protests of her accusers, SAMUEL ABBE being one of them, she was arrested a second time. Mary Easty was brought to trial again in a court where there existed almost no possibility of proving innocence. Under the Puritan court, the pressure to confess and atone for one's sins was immense. Innocent individuals with nothing to confess were subsequently often lead to admit to crimes which they did not commit. Moreover, other accused witches confirmed that Mary Easty had been working with them. Mary Easty was tried and condemned to death. She was hung by the neck until dead on September 22, 1692. Five years later, the people of Massachusetts recognized that Mary Easty had been innocent and that they had unjustly executed her. The Colony held a day of fasting on January 14, 1697, and especially the judges who had tried Mary Easty looked into their guilty consciences. None of this made much difference to Mary Easty, already long since dead and buried.


SARAH GOOD - Samuel Abbe and his wife Mary Knowlton, were witnesses in a witch trial in Salem in 1692 against Sarah Good, a women of vicious temper who had lived with Samuel Abbe and his wife in their home for a time but was dismissed on account of her disagreeable ways. She vowed vengeance upon them and when several of Samuel's cows and hogs died or were taken sick, the blame was laid to her as a witch. Samuel and his wife Mary brought charges against her for witchcraft and a warrant for Sarah's arrest was given at Salem, Massachusetts February 29, 1692. Sarah was tried, found guilty, and sentenced to death. Sarah Good hanged on Gallows Hill, July 19, 1692. Sarah Good was the wife of a common laborer and known to the towns people as a "destitute, wizened, pipe smoking hag".


In September, 1692, people started wondering if they were doing the right thing. The Witchcraft Trials of Salem Village have been described as "Americas most notorious episode of witchcraft hysteria". The Salem Witch Trials were the last witchcraft executions in America. The General Court of the Colony created the Superior Court to try the remaining witchcraft cases which took place in May, 1693. This time no one was convicted. The trials stopped after Pastor Cotton Mather delivered a sermon arguing against the mass convictions, and some clergy began to openly criticize spectral evidence. Governor Sir William Phipps, after several months of hesitation, freed all those who were in jail and the executions stopped.


After eight months of terror, the Salem Witch Trials ended---but not until after the loss of twenty---innocent people, including two dogs. Some may feel the wrong people went to the gallows. Those who were different, who didn't conform to societies incredibly strict standards, were declared witches instead of being accepted as individuals. The trials scared people into admitting they were someone they weren't, and were terrifying examples of corruption. The twenty people (and two dogs) executed were twenty-two lives to many, and action should have been taken sooner to stop the injustices. The Salem Witch Trials were a major tragedy, and those killed are still being mourned today.


Samuel Abbe and his wife Mary testified at one witch trial, " William Good and his wife Sarah Good being destitute, we out of charity let them live in our house for some time. Sarah Good was so spiteful and maliciously bent that we were forced, for quietness sake, to turn her and her husband out of the house. Ever since, she has behaved herself very crossly and maliciously, calling our children vile names and has threatened them often." <source> page 139, The Devil Discovered - Salem Wichcraft 1692, by Enders A Robinson.


Samuel married Mary Knowlton-[274] [MRIN:97], daughter of William Knowlton-[275] and Elizabeth-[276], on 12 Oct 1672 in Massachusetts.  (Mary Knowlton-[274] was born 1649 or 1653.)


Noted events in her life were:


1.  Marriage; 12 Oct 1672.  Samuel Abbe married Mary Knowlton, October 12, 1672. Mary Knowlton is the daughter of William Knowlton and Elizabeth Smith. She was born about 1649 or 1653.


The following notes are from the Knowlton Ancestry, compiled by Rev C.H. Stocking of Freehold, New Jersey, published 1897:


The name Knowlton reaches back traditionally to the time of William the Conqueror, 1066 - 87. Richard Knowlton was born 1553, at Knowlton Manor, which is situated about six miles from the great cathedral at Canterbury, Kent County, England. He married, July 17, 1577, Elizabeth Cantize. The last of their four children was William, commonly called Captain William, born 1584, married Elizabeth Smith. They had six children, two of whom died young. Captain William with his remaining family sailed for America in 1632. He died on the passage and was buried in Nova Scotia. His gravestone read, William Knowlton, 1632, and was discovered there by a land-surveyor in 1839. The family appear to have moved to Massachusetts the next year, probably to Hingham, later to Ipswich. William, the second son of Captain William, born in England, 1615, was a member of the first church in Ipswich and a freeman, 1641 -42. He was a brick-layer by trade and died in 1655.

2.  Church; 15 Nov 1689, Salem Village, Essex, Massachusetts.  Samuel Abbe and his wife Mary Knowlton united in forming the first church at Salem Village, the date of its formation being November 15, 1689. Salem Village is now Danvers, Massachusetts


The Salem Village church was organized as a covenanted body. Listed as one of the first 27 members was "Mary, wife to Samuel Abbe." Samuel was not listed as one of these members. All these 27 members were either Putnams or friends of the Putnam family. <source> page 82, The Devil Discovered - Salem Witchcraft 1692, by Enders A. Robinson.


The Putnams and the families pushed for a new church in Salem Village because they wanted to be free of Salem Town's political power. These people "were exclusively farmers and they favored the old ways of Puritanism." They lived on the remote, western side of Salem Village. Having their own church would give them political power in Salem Village. <source> page 63, The Devil Discovered - Salem Witchcraft 1692, by Enders A. Robinson.


The Putnam family was a driving force in the accusing of witches. Most of the complaints against witches were from the extended family of Thomas Putnam. "For a few complaints, some trusted friends were also allowed to participate." <source> page 110, The Devil Discovered - Salem Witchcraft 1692, by Enders A. Robinson
