One of at least two children born to Daniel Abbott and Mary (Mills) Abbott of Providence Co RI, Daniel was born in Newe Towne MA. He married Margaret White on 25 Dec 1678 in Providence Co RI and they had at least two children.

Children with Margaret:
1) Mary Abbott (b: 1679), m: Thomas Fenner Jr.
2) Daniel Abbot Esq (1682-1760), m: Mary Fenner.

1 Oct 1665 - Robert Williams sold to Daniel Abbott Jr, a 5 acre houselot "....which did in the original belong to Daniel Abbot Sr, father unto the above said Daniel Abbott and was by the said Daniel Abbott, by sale passed away unto one Robert Morris and from the said Robert Morris, it was passed unto me, the said Robert Williams". (This may have been the five parcels conveyed to Robert Morris on 20 May 1644.)

History of Cambridge MA:
"The site for what would become Cambridge was chosen in Dec 1630, because it was located safely up river from Boston Harbor, which made it easily defensible from attacks by enemy ships. Also, the water from the local spring was so good that the local Natives believed it had medicinal properties.

The first houses were built in the spring of 1631. The settlement was initially referred to as "the newe towne". Official MA records show the name was capitalized as "Newe Towne" by 1632."
