He was buried March 12,1679.
His first wife, married Aug 28,1616 at Abbotskerswell, Co.Devonshire, was Margery Abraham, the widow of Thomas Stephens of Ipplepen,Co.Devonshire, and daughter of Robert and Dorothy ____ Abraham.
Christopher Avery, along with his son James, migrated to Groton,CT about 1636. Christopher's wife (James' mother) Margery never came to New England. In fact, she died in August 1626, and Christopher Avery married Alice Berdon on July 25,1630 in Wolborough,Co.Devonshire,England. Christopher and James left Alice behind in England, never to return. Christopher Avery was fined many times for "living apart from his wife", which was an offense in Puritan New England.
Most Averys in America descend from either this Christopher 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.
Children(by first marriage): Mary Avery, James Avery.
