Robert Abell
Birth: 1605, England
Death: Jun. 20, 1663
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA

Born about 1605, probably at Stapenhill, Derbyshire, son of George and Frances (Cotton) Abell. In his will of 8 September 1630, George Abell of Hemington, Leicestershire, made a small bequest to his second son Robert Abell "in regard of the charges I have been at in placing him in a good trade in London which he hath made no use of and since in furnishing him for New England where I hope he now is."
An 1nnkeeper who came to Massachusetts Bay from London in 1630. First settled somewhere in the Bay. Moved to Weymouth MA by 1639; moved to Rehoboth MA in 1643. Died in Rehoboth 20 June 1663.
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 Robert was probably married to Joanna by 1639. 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.
