About John Abbe

JOHN3 ABBE, son of John2 and Hannah ( ) Abbe, born in Wenham Mass., April 20, 1691; baptized there 1691: died in Windham, Conn., January 16, 1770. Records pertaining to John Abbe of Windham are necessarily somewhat indefinite as there were several of the name living there at the same period. This was perhaps the John Abbe who was a proprietor in the drawing of a twenty-acre lot in 1707. He is probably the John Abbe of Norwich to whom, April 1, 1714, heirs of John Abbe make deed; Lydia Abbe, Thomas and Hannah Welch, Hannah Abbe, Richard Abbe, Daniel Sabin, and James Pease. (Windham Deeds, Liber F, page 183, etc.) In 1752 he bought property in Union, the homestead of Nathaniel Gould, also land of Nathaniel Walker and Joshua Webb. His name occurs in Union land transfers several times between 1754, when he made over property to his son Richard, and 1764. His will, dated June 6, 1767, was probated February 2, 1770. It mentions his wife, Sarah; to son John, whose wife is Lois, land in Windham; grandson, John, son of above John; to son, Richard, land on Beaver Hill in Windham; daughter, Hannah, who married Joshua Webb; to daughters Mary, Elizabeth, Eunice and Tabitha, lands in Windham; to his friend Reverend Mr. Stephen White of Windham, silver-headed cane. The inventory amounted to £1067, 12s, 6d, with land valued at £949, 15s. (Windham Probate Records, Vol. 8, page 41.)
