About George Abbott, Jr.

George Abbott, the immigrant ABBOTT ancestor, was probably born in England, and died in Rowley, Essex Co, Massachusetts, in 1647. He was one of the first settlers there, coming about 1642 from England, with his family. The records of Rowley during the time he lived there are missing, so that not much has been found concerning him. His name was at the head of a list of fifty-nine whose house-lots were surveyed January 10, 1643. About twenty acres of land are recorded as belonging to him at that time, but he evidently owned much more than that. It is thought that the Thomas Jr. in his family was an adopted son. George Abbott died in 1647, and after his death the court at Ipswich decided to put Thomas Jr. out as an apprentice to John Boynton for seven years, and guardians were appointed for the children. Abbott left a will, according to the Massachusetts colonial records, which was referred by the general court to the Salem court, November 11, 1647, but the will has not been found. The inventory of his estate was dated August 30, 1647. About three years after his death, Thomas Sr., his son, was eighth on the list of landowners, and was one of the leading proprietors and overseers, showing that his father must have owned a large amount of land.
