New London County
James Avery was baptized at Wolborough, Devonshire (near Abbotskerswell) on Apr 22,1621, the son of Christopher Avery and Margaret (Abraham) Stevens Avery of Ipplepen, Co.Devonshire, England. Christopher Avery, along with his son James, migrated to Groton,CT about 1636. Christopher's wife (James' mother) Margaret never came to New England. In fact, she died in 1626, and Christopher Avery married Alice Berdon in 1630 in England. Christopher and James left Alice behind in England, never to return.
All Averys in America descend from either this James Avery or from another Avery immigrant progenitor, William Avery of Dedham. It is not yet proven whether any relationship exists between the two Avery branches.
His first wife was Joanna Greenslade Avery, married at Gloucester,MA on Nov 10,1643. His second wife was Abigail (Ingraham) Cheeseboro Holmes Avery, the widow of Samuel Cheeseboro and of Joshua Holmes, married July 4,1698. (Her marriage to James Avery was brief....she is buried under the name of Abigail Holmes.)
Children(by first marriage): Hannah Avery Minor, James Avery Jr, Mary Avery Minor, Thomas Avery, John Avery, Rebecca Avery Potts, Jonathan Avery, Christopher Avery, and Samuel Avery.
