I have printed out an "Individual Record" from the LDS data base for George ABBOT (ABBOTT), AFN: 24th-8M). This shows he was born in Herts 14 June 1615, died in Andover, Mass 24 Dec. 1681, and was buried in Andover on 30 Aug. 1647.
I suppose he and his family were somerwhat alarmed at this since he wasn't yet dead, according to this file!!!!
This file shows him married to Mary Weed, Dorcas Graves, Mrs. Johanna Williamson, Hannah Chandler (3 times under 3 AFN numbers), and Sarah Farnam. These are the five wives you mention elsewhere.
Mary Weed was the wife of George Abbott and the mother of his 7 children. This George Abbott is usually refered to as George of Norwalk, CT) and died in February 1689/90 in Norwlalk, as far as we know. I have seen no proof of any connection in the colonies of this george of Norwalk to George of Andover or George of Rowley.
Mrs. Johanna Williamson was this same George of Norwalk's second wife. No childrten.
Dorcas Graves was the wife of George the son of the subject George Abbott (AFN: 24th-8M). This is very clear in Rev. Abiel and Ephraim Abbot's Registry.
Hannah Chandler was indeed the real wife of George Abbot, but why she is listed 3 times with 3 differtent AFN numbers, I know not. What is annoying is they make no effort to clean up the records, thus rendering them rather useless.
Sarah Farnum; I cannot find her married to a George Abbott, but that may well because I do not have volume 1 of Major Lemuel Abbott's work.
Just to add another nail, when I searched for a George Abbott married to Mary Weed, it came up with a list of names in the "IGI-North America." Under #78 you'll see a George Abbot who was "born about 1617 Stamford."I guess he was therefore too young to travel to Plymouth to see the Pilgrims arrive. Oh yes, his parents were married about 1625 in Norwalk, just 8 years after his birth. Good grief, my ggggggg-grandfather was illigitimate!
