Birth: Oct., 1601
Fordwich, England
Death: May 20, 1687
Charlestown
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Abigail Eddy was baptized at Cranbrook, Kent, October 1601, daughter of Rev. William Eddy of that parish; She married, by about 1620, John Benjamin (1595-1645). They came to Massachusetts Bay 16 September 1632 on the "Lyon." They first settled in Cambridge & moved to Watertown about 1643. She died at Charlestown 20 May 1687 (this date does not appear in the published Charlestown vital records, and may be from a tombstone)].
They had 8 children: John, Abigail Woodward, Mary, Joseph, Samuel, Caleb, Abel, & Joshua.
John's daughter Mary Benjamin refers in her will to "aunt Wines" and "cousin Anne Wines," indicating a connection with Barnabas Wines, whose wife Ann is also supposed to be a sister of John Eddy. This would also connect the Benjamins to SAMUEL EDDY.
