About John Abbott

The son of my ancestors, JOHN & JEMIMA (JOHNSON) ABBOTT, he married Elizabeth Phipps on October 18, 1721 in Lexington, Mass. Bay Colony. He was in Stow, Mass. by 1722 where he bought a house, barn & 66 acres of meadow upland, and swamp from Benjamin Wellington. Between 1725 and 1727, he was in Windham, Conn, and by 1728 in "West Farms" (now Franklin), Norwich Co., Conn.

He was living in Georgetown, South Carolina in 1730 where he was a merchant and sea captain making several voyages to England and the West Indies. On February 29, 1732, he received a royal grant for 250 acres in Craven County on the south side of Black River and in September of that year another grant of 650 acres in Prince George's Parish, Craven Co. at Rumm Bluff on the Waccamaw River. He removed to Wilmington, North Carolina in 1738.

He either died in Stow, Mass. or more likely in Craven, South Carolina. Two of their sons, John & Samuel, who remained in Conn. were Colonels and served in the Rev. War.


Born in Lexington, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA on 1697 to John Abbott and Jemima Johnson 1672-1754.

John married Elizabeth Phipps and had 5 children. He passed away on 1783 in Charlestown, South Carolina, USA.
