George(4) Abbott
b. 14 Jun 1615 Bishops Stortford Hertfordshire, England
d. 24 Dec 1681 Andover, Essex cty, MA
Note:
"George Abbot, the venerable ancestor of a numerous family of sons an daughters, and of a vastly more numerous line of descendants on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, is believed to have come from Yorkshire, England about the year 1640, and was one of the first settlers of Andover, Massachusetts, in 1643, and one of the proprietors of that town. He lived and died on a farm, which in 1847 was owned by John Abbot, one of his descendants of the seventh generation. During the period of Indian troubles, his house was a garrison and was used as such many years after the death of the immigrant. In 1647, he married Hannah, daughter of William and Anne Chandler; and George Abbot and his wife were both industrious, frugal and of pious mind. He died December 24, 1681, and his widow married a second husband, Rev. Francis Dane, minister of Andover. She died June 11, 1711, aged eighty-two years. George and Hannah (Chandler) Abbot had thirteen children, all born in Andover."
Note: "Among the several Abbots that early came to New England, George Abbot of Andover has the most prominent and numerous descendants. He is said to have emigrated from Yorkshire, England about 1640; and, after living at Roxbury awhile, came to Andover [Massachusetts], where he was one of the settlers as early as 1643. He cultivated the soil, and lived on the farm latterly owned by John Abbot, the house being a garrison.
"He married Hannah, daughter of William and Annis Chandler of Andover (formerly of Roxbury) Dec. 12, 1646. The parties are said to have to come to America on the same ship. Mr. Abbot died in Andover Dec. 24, 1681, at the age of sixty-six, being, as he says in his will, 'aged and crazy in body.' His wife survived him, and married Rev. Francis Dane of Andover between 1684 and 1703. She outlived Mr. Dane, and died June 11, 1711, aged eighty-two."
Note:
"GEORGE ABBOT / Born in England. / was of the first settlers / of Andover A.D. 1642 / where in 1647 he married / HANNAH. / He DIED Dec. 1681, Ae 66. / She DIED June, 1711, Ae 82. / Their descendents / in reverence for their moral / worth and Christian values, / erected this monument, A.D. 1843 // "
Note: "About the time George Abbott came of age (between 1636 to 1640), he left England, heading to Massachusetts Bay Colony in America. According to tradition among his descendants (which was published over a century ago) he came over in the same ship with the family of Hannah Chandler, whom he married a few years later.
It is very likely that the preaching and influence of Reverand John Eliot were responsible for his emigration to New England. He was among some of the first settlers of Puritans. Arriving about 20 years after the Mayflower Ship that landedat Plymouth Rock in 1620, his group was a part of the Great Migration that started in the 1630's. At first they built humble cabins.
George lived for a few years at Roxbury, but in 1643, when a new plantation was planned at an area called Andover, he became one of the first proprietors and settlers of that town. He lived at first in the northern section of the town, but about 1660 he established a farm in the South Parish.
Note:
"George was one of the first settlers of Andover, Massachusetts, one of the towns' proprietors, a tailor, a successful businessman and a husbandman (which means "A farmer; a cultivator or tiller of the ground"). He was educated and a deeply religious Puritan.
He lived and died on the farm that two hundred years later, in 1847, it was owned by John Abbot, a descendant of his. George and his wife, Hannah, both were economical, sober, frugel, and of pious mind and well respected. With Christian fortitude and submission they endured their trials, tribulations and dangers, of which they had a large share. They brought up a large family, and "trained them in the way they should go, from which they did not depart."
According to the Essex County court records, he was a member of Sergt. James Osgood's Militia Company, from 1658 to 1659. George Abbott was not very active in public affairs, holding only minor town offices, such as surveyor of highways in 1673 and brander of cattle in1676. On June 3, 1680 he was elected Constable. He was very respected, and for many years had charge of the North Meeting House in Andover. As he contracted to do certain repairs, he was compensated with real estate. Being a very thirfty and industrious person, resulted in him becoming financially well off, according to the tax list, one of the five wealthiest men in Andover.
About December of 1681, his Will was written in Andover, Essex County, Massachusetts; then at 66 years old he died. The "old burial place" at North Andover Center has suffered time, elements, and vandals (who have completely obliterated all markers in the older part of the cemetery). So, the actual resting place for George Abbott is unknow."
Note: "He took his Oath of Freemen on February 21, 1676 in Andover, Essex County, Massachusetts.
Becoming a freeman in the Puritan Colonies originally meant becoming a member in good standing of the local church. In turn meaning that a man had to demonstrate persuasively that he was one of the "elect" (a Calvinist concept essentially meaning that he was predestined to go to Heaven). Then he was inducted as a freeman, meaning he could vote in town meetings and elections. The oath essentially was a swearing of allegiance to the colony. Remember, the Massachusetts Bay Colony (and to a lesser extent the Connecticut Colony) were theocracies, except that clegymen generally did not hold civil offices."
Note:
" George built a garrison house that was the home of the family until 1704 and then it was replaced by a structure which later became known as "The Old Red House". This replacement was used many years after his death, until it too was torn down and replaced with the first section of a large house which would be owned and occupied by Abbotts for seven generation down through George's eldest son, John's line. It was demolished about 1858.
George and his bride went to live in the garrison house in Andover (which originally was called Cochichawiche). He had spent two years building this house. The house was built of heavy hewn or sawed logs with the corners securely fastened, the eaves extended out over the walls by two feet or more, so that in case of an attack, the defenders could fire down upon the enemy or pour water on a fire if one was started.
Old records indicate that the house stood on a plot of about four acres on the eastside of what is now Court Street in North Andover, a short distance north of the old burial place and meeting house. In this area, the houses were built close together for protection during Indian attacks. Later, George and Hannah lived in a garrison house on their farm land, two or three miles to the southwest.
During King Philip's War (which was led by an Indian that referred to himself as "King Philip"), on April 8, 1676, a band of Indians attacked Andover. The villagers fled into the garrisons for protection; George Abbott's house was one of these garrisons.
During the period of Indian uprisings, two of George's sons, Joseph and Timothy, were confronted while working in the fields. After a fight, Joseph (age 24 years) was killed and Timothy (almost 10 years old) was taken prisoner. The rest of the Abbott family reached their garrison and with the help of others, they succeeded in fighting off this attack of the Indians. Later in a state of starvation, Timothy escaped and made his way home."
Note:
""The Will of George Abbut of Andover, County. Essex, aged and "crasey" in body, dated 12 Dec 1681. He left all of his estate to his wife, Hannah and paid her a remarkably tender tribute;
"Considering the great love and affection I bear unto my loving wife Hannah Abbott and also considering her tender love and respect she hath had to me and also considering her care and diligence in helping to get and save what God hath blessed us withal and also prudence in management of the same, I do therefore leave my whole estate to her and for her use during the time of her natural life and at her death my will is that my overseers shall dispose of my estate that her necessity doth not enforce her to spend among my children."
It was also his will that "If any of the sons should be guilty of disobedient carriage toward their mother, they shall be cut short in their portions." The overseers were "My loving brothers Thomas and William Chandler and my loving friend John Barker."
Signed Georg Abbott
Witnesses: Thomas Chandler, Timothy Abbott. Proved 28 March 1682."
The inventory of his estate, taken by the overseers and presented by the widow and executrix on 28 Mar 1682, showed real estate appraised at 350, live stock, 91, and household goods and husbandry utensils, 46.12.5d., a total of .
At his death on Dec 24, 1681, his estate was appraised at 587 pounds, besides the gifts of land that he had already made to his sons. His will, dated Dec 12, 1681, twelve days before his death, is on record at the Essex County Court House at Salem. "
Note:
"In 1843, in the South Parish Burying Ground in Andover. George Abbott's descendants erected a monument in his memory on the two-hundredth anniversary of the settlement of the town of Andover which reads:
George Abbott Born in England, Was one of the first settlers of Andover A.D. 1643 Where in 1647 he married Hannah Chandler. He died Dec. 1681 age 66 She died June 1711 age 82 Their descendants in reverence for their moral worth and Christian virtues Erected this monument A.D. 1843"

4. GEORGE4 ABBOTT (GEORGE3, GEORGE2, WILLIAM1) was born 14 June 1615 in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire, England, and died 24 December 1681 in Andover, Essex Co., MA.1. He married HANNAH CHANDLER 12 December 1646 in Roxbury, Suffolk Co., MA3, daughter of WILLIAM CHANDLER and ANNIS BAYFORD . She was born 22 May 1630 in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire, England, and died 11 June 1711 in Andover, Essex Co., MA.4.

Notes for GEORGE ABBOTT :
Ref. Abbott by Rev. Abiel Abbot & Rev. Ephraim Abbot--1847 George Abbot , one of the first settlers of Andover, MA. came from Yorkshire, England about 1640. He has a brother Thomas who may have emigrated with him, though this fact was not clear from the book. The Reverends said that he died at age 66 and wife Hannah at age 82.

Genealogical History of the Clark and Worth Families by Carol Clark Johnson " GEORGE ABBOT was bon in 1616, and came from Yorkshire, Eng., to Roxbury, MA in 1638 with Rev. Ezekiel Rogers. He lived for a time in Roxbury where he married, Dec. 12, 1646, Hannah, daughter of William Chandler who came on the same ship. Abbot, a tailor and the church sexton, was one of the first Andover settlers in 1643, and the house he built there was for many years in the possession of his descendants. It was used as a garrison for the shelter of neighbors during Indian attacks. It is believed likely that the three Abbots of Andover were related, probably sons of three brothers, one of whom with three sons went to Rowley. Forty-four of this name had graduated from New England colleges by 1844.

George Abbot could write and served on the Grand Jury in 1658 and in 1676; in 1658 was commissioner for Andover and in 1663 was Constable. In 1669 he was chosen arbitrator in a civil case. He died Dec. 24, 1681, in Andover, and his widow married, as his third wife, the Rev. Francis Dane. Hannah survived Mr. Dane and died June 11, 1711, at 82. Their descendants, in respect "for their moral worth and Christian virtues", erected a monument to their memory in 1843."

New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Third Series, Vol. IV by William Richard Cutter "George Abbot, the immigrant ancestor, came from county York, England, in 1640, and was one of the first settlers at Andover, MA. He was a property owner in 1643 and his name was neneteenth on a list of twenty-three names of householders, written in the order in which they came to the town. His house was a garrison and for some time after his death was used for that purpose. The farm descended to at least eight generations of the family. He died Dec. 24, 1681. His will was dated Dec. 12, 1681, and proved March 28, 1682. He bequeathed to his wife Hannah; to eldest son John; the other children to inherit at the death of his wife."
