Abraham Annis was a weaver, husbandman and farmer. According to the Last Will and Testament of his father, he inherited several pieces of property in 1717. He served several periods of military duty during the Queen Ann's War (1708-1709), and is on the muster rolls of Captain Thomas Noyes. It is also recorded that he was paid 18 shillings by Lieutenant Caleb Moody for services during a scouting expedition to Haverhill, Massachusetts between August 18-31, 1708. An account of the march to Haverhill, by Lt. Moody and his company, is recorded in the Vermont Gazetteer (Volume 4).

Abraham spent all but the last year of his life at Newbury at which time he purchased 100 acres of land at Haverhill, MA (now Salem, New Hampshire). This move was no doubt prompted by his son Abraham, who had moved there some years previous.

 Notes for Abraham Annis: Abraham was a weaver, husbandman and farmer. He also served several periods of military duty during the Queen Ann's War (1708-1709), and is on the muster rolls of Captain Thomas Noyes in 1688. It is also recorded that he was paid 18 shillings by Lieutenant Caleb Moody for services during a scouting expedition to Haverhill, Massachusetts between August 18-31, 1708. An account of the march to Haverhill, by Lt. Moody and his company, is recorded in the Vermont Gazeteer (Volume 4). There does not appear to be many church records concerning Abraham, unlike his elder brother Joseph, but his link to the church can be found in the record that states that on May 13, 1718 Abraham, and several others, were granted liberty to use the Flats near Hall's (or Holt's) Rock for fishing on condition that one salmon per year be given to Rev. Christopher Toppan and Rev. John Tufts, the pastors of the First and Second churches "if they catch them". Hall's (or Holt's)Rock is now East Haverhill, Massachusetts on the Merrimack River. Abraham spent all but the last year of his life at Newbury. In 1736 he purchased a farm of 100 acres at Haverhill, Massachusetts (now Salem, New Hampshire). This move was no doubt prompted by his son Abraham, who had moved there some years previous.

  • There is some conflict as to the name of Abraham's wife. According to the genealogies of Alonzo Lawson Annes and Verle Lincoln Annis, Abraham was married to the widow of John Carleton, Hannah (Osgood) Carleton, daughter of Christopher Osgood and sister to Joseph Annis' wife, Dorothy Osgood. The unpublished and undocumented manuscript of G.O. Courser of 1938 claims that Abraham was married to Hannah Badger by 1692. She was the daughter of Sergeant John and Hannah (Serett) Badger, and was born at Newbury on December 3, 1673. To further complicate this issue, the published French Family Genealogy, states that John Carleton was married to Hannah Osgood, but she was not widowed early, and that they both lived to an old age. It must be remembered that the above mentioned sources, as well as the Ordway Genealogy are "compiled" genealogies, and no documentation on Abraham's marriage or his wife's name has yet been found.
