About Abigail Stone

ABIGAIL STONE: APRIL 24 1648 - MAY 11 1718 Abigail Carter

Birth: Apr. 24, 1648 - Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts Death: May 11, 1718 - Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts Her first husband was Lt James Fowle, the son of George Fowle.

Her second husband was Samuel Walker Jr, and her third husband was Samuel Stone.

She was the daughter of Capt.John Carter and Elizabeth (Groce/Kendall) Carter of Charlestown and Woburn. (Elizabeth Carter may also be found here.) Lieutenant James Fowle, supposed son of George Fowle, of Concord, was taxed in Woburn, 1666; was a cordwainer by trade, and probably had a shop on land behind the "Bell Hill," now "Powder House Hill." His wife Abigail married, April 18, 1692, Ensign Samuel Walker. Lieutenant Fowle was constable of Woburn in 1672.

Notes

From The GRAFTON MAGAZINE of History and Genealogy Vol. I September, 1908 No. 2. THE ANCESTRY OF THE FOWLE FAMILY By Elmore Allen Pierce, Historian of the Fowle Kindred Association. Page 2

After coming to this country, George Fowle pursued the occupation of a tanner and joining the militia was made a surveyor of arms. His children numbered eleven, seven of whom were sons, and their numerous descendants have become scattered far and wide.

It would seem that most of his then living children went with him to Charlestown, but his fifth child, James, born in Concord, Feb. 1642, settled in Woburn some time later, his first recorded appearance there being in 1666. It is probable that this was about the time of his marriage to Abigail Carter, daughter of Captain John and Elizabeth Carter of Woburn. She was born there April 21, 1648, and the first fruit of her union with James Fowle was a son born in Woburn, March 4, 1667, who was named for his father. Three other sons and four daughters were the later issue of the couple, they continuing to reside in Woburn, where the father died Dec. 17, 1690, in his 49th year.

His widow married a second husband April 18, 1692, Deacon Samuel Walker, of Woburn, who died Jan. 8, 1704, she then marrying a third time Deacon Samuel Stone of Cambridge Farms, now Lexington, Mass. She died, his widow, in Woburn, May 11, 1718, in her 71st year.

James Fowle 2 was imbued with the military spirit of his father and became a member of the train-band, first as a trooper, later appointed an ensign by Governor Andros, some time between 1686 and 1689, and afterwards elected a lieutenant.

In 1690 his patriotism led him to join what is known as the Phips Expedition to Quebec, Canada, against the French, the inhabitants of New England being at that time subjects of England, and Canada being subject to France. This expedition was undertaken late in the year and was badly managed, resulting most disastrously to the Americans. The weather in Canada was excessively cold and many of the soldiers from New England died there from exposure. There seems to be little doubt that while James Fowle was able to return home his death, which followed in December, was due to the hardships experienced while away.

Previous to his departure on the expedition he apparently had a feeling that he might not return alive, for on July 30, 1690, he made his will in which he said: "Being by a call of God bound for Canada in the Expedition and not knowing whether I shall ever return alive"—he then disposed of property to his wife and children. Lieutenant James Fowle was a cordwainer, or shoemaker, by trade and lived and had his shop in the vicinity of the present Central House. His accumulations of land seem to be evidence of considerable thrift and this, together with his having a right in 1668 in the common lands of the town, enabled him to leave quite a little real estate to his family. His estate after his death was inventoried at nearly $3,500,—a considerable amount for that time.

It is recorded that in 1678 he was allowed to take in "a little piece of land behind the Bell Hill" probably for a shop. Bell Hill is the elevation now known as Powder House Hill and was so called at that time because upon its top was located the bell whose voice summoned the people to church. This hill adjoined the lot upon which stood James Fowle's home, his holdings including at the time of his death the present Central House lot and more to the south and north, as well as on the other side of Main Street, then the country road. To this his descendants in the succeeding three or four generations gradually added until the Fowles came to be among the largest land proprietors in Woburn, all of their possessions being in the heart of the town.

A large number of Lieut. James Fowle's descendants have borne a prominent and distinguished part in the affairs of Woburn.

The direct line of descent from Lieut. James to him whose descendants are members of the Fowle Kindred Association is: Captain James Fowle,3 Major John Fowle,4 Josiah Fowle,5 and Deacon John Fowle.6

She was born there April 21, 1648, and the first fruit of her union with James Fowle was a son born in Woburn, March 4, 1667, who was named for his father. Three other sons and four daughters were the later issue of the couple, they continuing to reside in Woburn, where the father died Dec. 17, 1690, in his 49th year.

His widow married a second husband April 18, 1692, Deacon Samuel Walker, of Woburn, who died Jan. 8, 1704, she then marrying a third time Deacon Samuel Stone of Cambridge Farms, now Lexington, Mass. She died, his widow, in Woburn, May 11, 1718, in her 71st year.

James Fowle 2 was imbued with the military spirit of his father and became a member of the train-band, first as a trooper, later appointed an ensign by Governor Andros, some time between 1686 and 1689, and afterwards elected a lieutenant.

In 1690 his patriotism led him to join what is known as the Phips Expedition to Quebec, Canada, against the French, the inhabitants of New England being at that time subjects of England, and Canada being subject to France. This expedition was undertaken late in the year and was badly managed, resulting most disastrously to the Americans. The weather in Canada was excessively cold and many of the soldiers from New England died there from exposure. There seems to be little doubt that while James Fowle was able to return home his death, which followed in December, was due to the hardships experienced while away.

Previous to his departure on the expedition he apparently had a feeling that he might not return alive, for on July 30, 1690, he made his will in which he said: "Being by a call of God bound for Canada in the Expedition and not knowing whether I shall ever return alive"—he then disposed of property to his wife and children. Lieutenant James Fowle was a cordwainer, or shoemaker, by trade and lived and had his shop in the vicinity of the present Central House. His accumulations of land seem to be evidence of considerable thrift and this, together with his having a right in 1668 in the common lands of the town, enabled him to leave quite a little real estate to his family. His estate after his death was inventoried at nearly $3,500,—a considerable amount for that time.

It is recorded that in 1678 he was allowed to take in "a little piece of land behind the Bell Hill" probably for a shop. Bell Hill is the elevation now known as Powder House Hill and was so called at that time because upon its top was located the bell whose voice summoned the people to church. This hill adjoined the lot upon which stood James Fowle's home, his holdings including at the time of his death the present Central House lot and more to the south and north, as well as on the other side of Main Street, then the country road. To this his descendants in the succeeding three or four generations gradually added until the Fowles came to be among the largest land proprietors in Woburn, all of their possessions being in the heart of the town.

A large number of Lieut. James Fowle's descendants have borne a prominent and distinguished part in the affairs of Woburn.

The direct line of descent from Lieut. James to him whose descendants are members of the Fowle Kindred Association is: Captain James Fowle,3 Major John Fowle,4 Josiah Fowle,5 and Deacon John Fowle.6
