When researching George Abbott back to England be careful as to which George Abbott you mean. Among the early colonists there were two George Abbotts, The difference indicated as George Abbott, Sr. m. Hannah Chandler and settled in Roxbury Mass. having arrived in 1636. George Abbott, Jr. or George the tailor emigrated to Bay Colony in 1642 from England and settled into Rowley Mass. From family records: "There has been some speculationas to whether or not the two families might not have been related; but, to date (1963), there has been no evidence found to show that they were. They did, however, live as close and friendly neighbors; and as early as the third generation began to intermarry freely." If you want some information on the George Sr. descent line into england I have four generations going back to William Abbott of Bishop's Stortford b. about 1470.
