In my quest to determine parentage of EDITH FLEW who d. 1760 Portland, w/o ROBERT PEARCE, I came across references to two men named ABEL FLEW; one Abel Flew (m) Tabitha (maiden name unknown), parents of Simon Pearce, bap. 15/07/1669 Portland.
The other ABEL FLEW, bur. 25/10/1676 in question (m) EDITH, (maiden name unknown).This Abel Flew and Edith had a dau. Mary Flew.
In my Pearce line above (Robert Pearce and Edith Flew) there seems to be three names that run through many generations and that is Abel, Tabitha, and Edith.I believe these names are common through Edith Flew and her ancestors.If anyone can be of assist, I would much like to hear from you.Of course, I am willing to share.
