  • Notes 
    • Born about 1605, probably at Stapenhill, Derbyshire, son of George and Frances (Cotton) Abell. In his will of 8 September 1630, George Abell of Hemington, Leicestershire, made a small bequest to his second son Robert Abell "in regard of the charges I have been at in placing him in a good trade in London which he hath made no use of and since in furnishing him for New England where I hope he now is."
      An 1nnkeeper who came to Massachusetts Bay from London in 1630. First settled somewhere in the Bay. Moved to Weymouth MA by 1639; moved to Rehoboth MA in 1643. Died in Rehoboth 20 June 1663.
      Married Joanna _____. The given name of Robert Abell's Wife is first seen after his death, during the probate of his estate; there is no indication that Robert had any other Wife, and his sons Preserved and Caleb named daughters Joanna, so Robert was probably married to Joanna by 1639. She married second at Rehoboth 4 June 1667 William Hyde of "New Norwich." She removed to Norwich with her new Husband, and outlived him as well.
