Abigail's Husbands Background

John Young was born about 1615 in England and he died January 28, 1690/91 in Eastham, Barnstable, Massachusetts. The names of his parents and the location of his birth are unknown but he may be the son of Sir John Young of Devonshire, England, who received with others, on March 19, 1627/8 a grant from the Plymouth Council, of a tract of land three miles north of the Merrimac River and three miles south of the Charles River. Sir John Young had a son John Young, Jr.[1]

"John Young sailed from England for the Barbados on the sailing vessel ?Hopewell? on 2 Feb 1634 at the age of nineteen (19). He was of a Norfolkshire family. His stay in the Barbados or the fact of his reaching the destination is not known. John first appeared in Plymouth records in 1643 in a list of men eligible for military service."[1]

In John Young of Eastham by Elisabeth Ridgely Young 1908 - (NEHGS manuscripts) it states that John Young was bound for Barbados and later landed in Plymouth. The information below is taken from the Mayflower Descendant volumes and various internet resources[2]

....John Young was living at Plymouth in 1643 when his name appeared on a list as being between 16 & 60 years old and able to bear arms. In 1644 an inventory of John Jenney's estate showed 1 lb & 2 cents as being owed to John Yeonge. About 1650 John removed to Eastham and in 1654 was chosen as constable. He was a soldier from Eastham 1653 when preparations for war against the Dutch were being made.[3]

Name

Name: Abigail Howland[4][5][6][7][8][9][10]

Birth

Birth: Date: 1628 Place: England Note: Abigail Howland, daughter of Henry and probably Mary his wife, was born say 1628 (based on date of marriage). It is believed that her father did not immigrate until 1632, so Abigail was probably born in England.[4]. Birth: Date: 1629 Place: Plymouth[5][6] Birth: Date: Born ca 1628.[7]

Marriage

Husband: John Young[4][7][8][9][10] Marriage: Date: 13 Dec 1648[7][8][9][10] Place: Plymouth, Massachusetts[4][8][9][10] Marriage Notes

:Note1:[11]John is listed in different sources as marrying Abigail and Elizabeth on the same day. Abigail and Elizabeth are the same person.

:Note2:[5][6] John married Abigail Howland Dec 13, 1648 in Plymouth. He was born ca 1624 in England and she was born ca 1629 in Plymouth. John d. Jan 28/29, 1690/91 and his wife d. Apr 7, 1692.

:Note3:[7]On 13 Dec 1648 Abigail married John Young, son of Rev. John Young (ca 1598-1671) & Joan Herrington (ca 1598-), at Plymouth, MA. Born ca 1624 at England. John died at Eastham, MA, on 28 Jan 1690/1.

:Note4: [7]However, the John Young, son of John YONGES md Joan Herrington, was born 10 Apr 1623 and died, 12 Apr 1698 in Southold, Suffolk, New York, and married Mary Gardner abt 1653 and Hannah Anne Wines abt 1691

:Note5:[10] John YOUNG Rev. was born about 1629 in Devonshire, England. He died on 25 Jan 1690 in Eastham, Mass.. John married Abigail HOWLAND daughter of Henry HOWLAND and Mary NEWLAND on 13 Dec 1648. Abigail died on 7 Apr 1692 in Eastham, Mass.. 2/16/14 Material moved from profile of John Howland This section needs to be sourced.

:Note6:[10]The date of the marriage of Abigail to John Young is in dispute. According to Howland's History, this Abigail married Young on 2 9m [November] 1678, a date not found in any records and one too late to accord with her being called Abigail Young in her mother's will of 1674. Howland's alleged date is the one found in the Friends Records for the marriage of an Abigail Howland to Richard Keerby (see Abigail, widow of No.2, Zoeth Howland). The names of some of the children born to John Young and wife Abigail (e.g., Joseph, Henry, and possibly Robert) are Howland names and re compatible with a presumption that the mother was a daughter of Henry Howland; but if she were, Abigail was married many years earlier. A likely record of the marriage is the previously cited one in 1684. Extensive information is available on the family, both published and unpublished. A quick review of the Youngs in Plymouth Colony, made by the the authors Wakefield and Sherman, suggests that this John is the only Young in the colony likely to be Abigail's husband. CONT Note: This is a decently sourced out report with lots of potential for further study.

Jospeh Young said his mother told him that when she died she would leave all her estate with Henry, if Robert still had "that girl." but if Robert "had her not," the estate should be divided between Henry and Robert. Nathaniel Young testified much the same. Sarah, wife of Joseph Young, swore under oath on 25 April 1692 that "mother Young" had told her, some three weeks before, that her daughter Abigail had asked her to give each daughter a platter or something to remember her by, but the mother said she would not give them anything except possibly an earthen cup and platter to Lydia. All the rest was to go to Henry; but if Robert did not have "that girl," and if Henry was willing, Robert should have half of her estate. On 18 October 1692, the court ruled that the widow had adequately disposed of her estate, and three of her sons (John, Joseph and Henry) agreed. Robert must have kept the girl.
