Birth: 1600
City of London
Greater London, England
Death: Nov. 11, 1647
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA

The son of Sir Maurice Abbott and his wife, Margaret (Barnes) Abbott. He married Mary (unknown) probably in England and settled in Rowley, Mass. He is not the George Abbott of Andover who married Hannah. According to Genealogical Dictionary of the New England Settlers, Vol. 1, p. 6, they had three sons: George, Nehemiah, and Thomas.

Another opinion about George Abbott's parentage:
It appears that George Abbot's parents are incorrect if this statement about Morris/Maurice is right. "George Abbot, another of his [Maurice] sons, became a probationer fellow of Merton College, Oxford, in 1622, and was admitted bachelor of civil law in 1630 (Wood, Athen. Oxon. (ed. Bliss), ii. 564). He carried the great banner at the funeral of his uncle, the Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1633, and ***sat in the Long Parliament as M.P. for Guildford until his death in 1645*** (Members of Parliament, i. 494).
