Somewhere back about my 8th great grndmother was Anstice (or Agnes) Abbott, b. in North Molton, Devon, in 1605. She married Phillip Shapland of North Molton.She was the daughter of Richard Abbott b. 1577, and Johanne Unknown. Richard was the son of Thomas Abbott, b. 1539 and Mary Unknown. Thomas was the son of Richard Abbott, b. 1515.I am related to her through the Westcott and the Horwood families of Devon and Cornwall.. If you have found out more about the Abbott family of Devon, I would appreciate your sharing it with me.In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I grew up, Abbott's milk and Abbott's ice cream was a very popular - if not the most popular - brand.
