Abigail Dyer
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1603, England
Death: 1672

George Dyer married by late 1636 Abigail _____, seen only at admission to church membership. (If she was the mother of both his daughters, the marriage must have taken place a decade earlier.)
They had two children: Elizabeth Trescott & Mary Pond.
The only evidence for a wife or wives for George Dyer, aside from the existence of his daughters, is the record of the admission to church of Abigail Dyer in 1636. Savage claims that Dyer had wife Elizabeth, but there is no record evidence for this, and there may be some confusion with the daughter Elizabeth. Related to the question of the wife or wives of George Dyer is the bequest to son-in-law James White. Does this imply a third daughter who married James White, or a marriage to a widow White who was mother of James? A careful analysis of all available evidence needs to be carried out to answer this question. (An attempt to solve this problem is the claim that George's daughter Mary married first William Pond and second James White, but this will not do, since Pond died in 1690, eighteen years after the writing of George Dyer's will.)
Both of the daughters of George Dyer used the name Samuel for their eldest son, and both named a daughter Martha. These names may be useful in investigating the parentage of George Dyer, or of the mother of his children.
