About Sir Thomas Abdy, 1st Baronet

Sir Thomas Abdy, 1st Baronet (1612 – 14 January 1686), was an English lawyer and landowner, the son of Anthony Abdy and Abigail Campbell. Abdy was baptised on 18 May 1612, and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, to which he was admitted in 1629 as a Fellow Commoner. He became a member of Lincoln's Inn in 1632. Abdy married Mary Corsellis on 1 February 1638 at St Peter Le Poer, London, by whom he had three children, James (b. 1639, d. young), Rachael (b. 1640), and Abigail (b. 1644). Abdy inherited the family seat of Felix Hall, Essex, upon his father's death in 1640, and was created a baronet in the following year, on 14 July 1641. Mary died on 6 April 1645 and was buried at Kelvedon. On 16 January 1647, Sir Thomas made a second marriage, at St Bartholomew the Less, London, to Anne Soame, daughter of Sir Thomas Soame, an alderman of London. They had ten children: Anthony (1655–1704), Thomas (d. 1697), William (d. 1682), Joanna (1654–1710), Alice (b. 1661), Anna (d. 1692), Mary, Judith, Sarah, and Elizabeth. In 1651, Abdy was named High Sheriff of Essex, but continued to prosper after the Restoration, seeking a lease from the Crown soon afterwards of the sugar duty. He inherited the property of his cousin Sir Christopher Abdy of Uxbridge in 1679, the same year in which his wife Anne died, on 16 June 1679. Abdy died on 14 January 1686 and was buried at Theydon Garnons, Essex, being succeeded by his son Anthony. His monument at Theydon Garnons was, perhaps, designed by William Stanton.
