|Death: ||Sep. 19, 1672|
New London County
Robert Abell married Joanna _____. The given name of Robert Abell's wife is first seen after his death, during the probate of his estate; there is no indication that Robert had any other wife, and his sons Preserved & Caleb named daughters Joanna, so he was probably married to Joanna by 1639.
They had 8 children: Abraham, Mary Luther, Preserved, Caleb, Joshua, Benjamin, Experience Baldwin, & another child (based on distribution of estate, which referred to "the eldest son," Mary Abell, and "the other five children"). Analysis of the names given to children of the known children of Robert Abell suggests two possibilities for this child: Mehitable (used by Mary, Preserved, Joshua, Benjamin and Experience) and Martha (used by Mary, Preserved, Caleb and Joshua). Martha was not used in any of these families prior to the marriage of Preserved Abell to Martha Redway, whereas Mehitable was used twice (by Mary and Preserved) before the marriage of Joshua Abell to Mehitable Smith.
She married second at Rehoboth 4 June 1667 William Hyde of "New Norwich." She removed to Norwich with her new husband, and outlived him as well.
