bullet  General Notes:

As early as 1663, he was one of three to oversee the
Town's Common and to resist encroachments on the timber. He may be the
John Abbe who was constable in 1669. He is first described as a yeoman
of Wenham, and was admitted to freedom by the court at Boston, May 11,
1670. In a document of 1683, his father designated him as the heir to
his estate in Wenham upon the condition of his caring for his
father and mother in their old age. He apparently resided upon this
estate until about 1696.

John and Unknown had the following children:

19 M i John III Abbe was born on May 5 1665 in Wenham, Massachusetts. He died on May 15 1665 in Wenham, Massachusetts.

John Abbe, born in Salem, about 1637; died in Windham, 11 Dec 1700. First described as yeoman of Wenham; in 1663, one of three appointed to oversee the town's common and resist encroachments on the timber; admitted as freeman by the court at Boston, 11 May 1670. John apparently resided on his father's estate until about 1696, when he sold it to Francis Wainright, and removed to Windham, where for 70 he bought home lot number 7 at Windham Center from Exercise Conant, with the right to 1,000 acres and a dwelling house (13 July 1696). Apparently, possession of the Wenham property later reverted to John, for he sold it again to Nathaniel Waldron, 19 October 1696, for 130. John was admitted as freeman of Windham on 9 December 1696. He and his wife Hannah were dismissed from the Wenham Church to Windham by letter dated 28 Oct 1700, and both were original members of the first church of Windham at its organization, 10 Dec 1700. John wrote his will that day, and died suddenly the following day (food for thought). John apparently married first a Goodale: Isaac Goodale, who was perhaps son of Isaac and Patience Goodale, called John Abbe his uncle. His second wife was Hannah, possibly widow of Richard Goldsmith of Wenham. Following John's death, she married Jonathan Jennings, Sr., of Windham (16 November 1703) and died 8 March 1724. The will of John Abbe mentioned thirty acres of land "adjoining to Goodman Binghams and Goodman Larrabees." By inventory taken 4 September 1701, John's estate was valued at 118 13s, with indebtedness of about 14. Children by his first wife: John (1665), John (1666), Thomas (1667), Joseph (1673), Obadiah (about 1675), Abigail (about 1677). Children by his second wife: Richard Abbe (1683), Mary (1684) John (1691), Hannah (1693), Lydia (1696), Sarah (1699). 1


John married Hannah Abigail Goodale, daughter of Robert Goodale and Catherine Killiam, about 1664. (Hannah Abigail Goodale was born on 6 Aug 1645 in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA and died on 8 Mar 1724 in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA.)


John next married Hannah Goldsmith, daughter of Richard Goldsmith Jr. and Mary Perkins, about 1680. (Hannah Goldsmith was born on 4 Mar 1658 in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA and died on 8 Mar 1724 in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA.)
