His wife's name was Abigail (surname unknown), and she appears to have been the mother of all his children. It seems probable that their two eldest sons were born before 1637, because they were "presented" before the Court "for defect in watching," 31, 3, 1649. As it is certain that watching could not have been done very intelligently by lads less than fifteen years of age, they must have been born about 1632 and 1634. So it is likely that the marriage of William Averell to Abigail took place in 1631 or 1632, while they were still very young, and if not in Ash or Ipswich, possibly in some other place in England or America.

[About William Averell Jr and his brother Thomas:] His name appears first in Ipswich Court Records and Files; 31:3:1649, as "Will Avery, jr." He and his brother "Thomas Avery" on this occasion were brought before the court for defect in watching [see p. 53; also Essex Ant., July, 1904; vol. viii]. We conclude from this item, and others, that William* was about seventeen years of age at this time.
