Abigail Batchelor married first Henry Damon by license dated 6 March 1619/20 to be married at Faversham.[2] [3] Their first child, John Damon, was baptized 13 January 1620/21 at Faversham.[2] [4] The family then apparently moved to Dover where Jane Damon daughter of Henry Damon was baptized on 15 August 1624 at St. James, Dover. Henry Damon must have died between 1624 (when Jane was born) and 1630 (when she remarried), though no burial record or will has been found for him. She married second John Eaton at the parish of St. James in Dover, co. Kent, England. [2] The parish registers read “John Eton & Abigaile Doman”.

   Henry Damon died leaving two young children, likely as a young man himself. Parish records at Faversham, St. James in Dover, and St. Mary's in Dover have been used to conclusively prove his origins and that of his children. [2] His marriage and birth of his first child occured at Faversham; however, he soon thereafter removed to Dover where the baptism of his second child is found. After his widow Abigail remarried to John Eaton, his children emigrated with his wife on the Elizabeth and Ann in May of 1685.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=37779688&ref=acom Abigail Damon Eaton Birth: 1600 Kent, England Death: unknown Dedham Norfolk County Massachusetts, USA John Eaton married Abigail (____) Damon at St. James, Dover, Kent, 5 Apr 1630. They had six children: Mary Mason, John, Thomas, John again, Abigail Mason, & Jacob. Through his marriage to the widow Abigail Damon, John Eaton became stepfather to her two children, JANE DAMON {1635, Watertown} & John Damon, who appeared in Reading in the mid-1640s. Abigail traveled to New England with her mother & stepfather, but John was not on the passenger list with them, & he may well have come later. Some secondary sources claim that John Eaton's wife Abigail was sister of JOHN BACHELOR {1634, Watertown}. No evidence has been found to support this claim, but a record does exist which may explain why some researchers have been led to this conclusion. On 30 Jul 1641, "brethern John Batchellour & John Eaton with their wives" were admitted to Dedham church. This record describes Bachelor & Eaton as brethern in the church, but may have been taken innacurately by some researchers to indicate that they were brothers-in-law, assuming that Eaton had married Bachelor's sister. The maiden surname of John Eaton's wife remains unknown.
