Per Jacobus the William Andrews who married Abigail was probably an original settler of Hartford, Connecticut. His early lands were probably in the 1639/40 era since those of Francis Andrews were of this date, and William's lands were entered on the preceeding page.

Francis Andrews of Hartford and Fairfield and John Andrews of Farmington may have been younger half-brothers of William Andrews [TAG 35:57, 59]

William Andrews (died 1659) was the husband of Mary Savage [SIC: unproven] and Abigail Graves. Father of five including Thomas Andrews. He probably came to Hartford with Hooker's Company and was a founder of the town. Although his place of burial is not known, his name is on the Founder's Stone in the Ancient Cemetery in Hartford. His home was south of Little or Park River in land now part of Bushnell Park.


From http://www.gravesfa.org/gen345.htm

An article by Donald Lines Jacobus in The American Genealogist, vol. 35, pp. 55-59 (R-100), is considered to be the definitive work on Abigail Graves and William Andrews. Jacobus states: "It is certain that William was in Hartford before 1640 when he became schoolmaster, and in fact he had a child born there in 1638. Although many of the Hartford settlers came from Cambridge, I think he was a different man from the William Andrews of Cambridge whose wife Mary died there 19 Jan. 1639/40. One reason for this conclusion is that William's wife Abigail is the proven mother of William's three sons - proven by William's will which called the children "our" children, as well as by the fact that Abigail's second husband gave them legacies, and finally by a deed of Abigail Barding which calls John, Thomas and Samuel Andrews her sons..." William Andrews "certainly married Abigail, most probably a sister of George Grave (later called Graves), Sr., of Hartford, but possibly sister of Grave's unknown first wife."

D.L. Jacobus in an American Genealogist Article entitled "Andrews Families of Western Connecticut," explains that Savage's Genealogical Dictionary has combined two William Andrews of Cambridge. One of them who died in Cambridge had a wife named Mary who died in 1639 and a second wife Reana, the other William had a wife Abigail and removed to Hartford, Connecticut where he died. The William of Hartford died 1659.[1]William who stayed in Cambridge died about 1652. William who died in Cambridge was a mariner and shop owner while William who died in Hartford was a school master and Clerk.[2]

Generation 1 begins with the immigrant, William Andrews and his wife Mary Savage. William's name is on the Founders Monument for Hartford,CT, along with Francis Andrews, assumed to be a brother, and Thomas Spencer and William Spencer. Mary, wife of William Andrews, died in Braintree, Mass., 18th November, 1639 -- p.12 William Andrews' will, dated April 1, 1659 in Hartford, CT: -- p.13 "I, William Andrews, being sick and weak, but of perfect memory do in this my last will and Testament, give and bequeath to Abigail, my wife, my house, barn, and home lot, as it is enjoyed between my son, Edward Branniss, and me; also I do give and bequeath unto the said Abigail, my wife, all my meadow and swamp lying in the south meadow, and that lyeth in the place called Hockanum, and all my uplands also, during the time of her natural life; also I give to the said Abigail, my wife, two cows and one yearling calf; also I give unto her 4 yds. of kersey, and 3 doz. buttons, and silk, and all of her movable goods, during the time she liveth unmarried.

Also my Will is that Abigail, my wife, shall dispose of my land, Meadow, Swamp, Housing and home lt, among the children, to every one of them some, as she shall think fit, with the advise and consent of the overseers of this my Will. I do hereby make Abigail, my wife, sole Executrix of this my last Will and Testament, and do also instruct my loving friend, Edward Stebbins, and my brother, George Grave, to assist my wife, and to see this my Wll executed and performed. Dated 1st April, 1659, in presence of Edward Stebbins, George Grave, Wit. Signed William Andrews. The inventory was taken 3d August, 1659 by John Barnard, Edward Stebbins, George Grave. Amt., £211 12s 11d At a Particular Court held 4th March, 1651, Mr. Andrews was confirmed Recorder of the town of Hartford. His first wife had died at Braintree, Mass., when 2d he married this Abigail, to whom he gave in his Will as above. After his death (the precise date being unknown) she distributed the estate to the children then surviving, and she married Nathaniel Bearding, who lived on Lord's Hill, and who died about 1674. The sons were John Andrews, Thomas Andrews, Samuel Andrews, born 20th October, 1645; son-in-law, Thomas Spencer, Jr., husband of their daughter Esther. ...
