Abell Family

abellcr1.jpg (7068 bytes)

The above family crest was used by my ancestor, George Abell.
Fleur-de-lis signify that the Abells were originally of Norman-French origin and they, in all probability, settled in England during the Norman invasion. The presence of the Fleur-de-lis so prominently on the Abell escutcheon signifies that they were held in very high esteem by the Norman rulers, for only those families of the very noblest rank were given the privilege of bearing the Fleur-de-lis, which was the chief heraldic device on the escutcheon of the early Norman-French kings. It was a very rare distinction for them to share this device with others.

Robert Abell, Esq., was living in Bryslingcote, county Derby, in 1517. He was servant or tenant of Sir William Gresley. His grandson, George Abell, of Leicestershire, in 1578 matriculated at Brasenose College, University of Oxford. He appears to have been a member of a branch which flourished in the central counties during the 16th and 17th centuries and in which the names of Robert and George predominated. In 1636 William Abell of Northampton was an alderman of London and next year was high sheriff, in which capacity he became so cordially unpopular in his attempt to enforce the king's unjust taxation scheme, that during the protectorate he was forced to seek refuge in Holland. A few years later John Abell became a favorite at the court of Charles II, possibly a son or near relative of the high sheriff being recompensed after the restoration. He was a noted "alto" singer, of high voice, the modern tenor. It appears that he also became unpopular during the revolution which deposed James II, but found great demand and much acclaim for his talents on the continent, especially in Poland then at the height of her power.

In 1630 Robert, second son of George Abell of Leicestershire, set sail in the fleet under Governor Winthrop for Massachusetts Bay. His father's will made in September the same year "cut him off" with a "twenty shilling piece," in view of having set him up in business in London of which he had made no use and more recently of having outfitted him for New England with the hope of his safe arrival. No doubt George Abell had passed on before such a message could have been received in those days. The first American record finds Robert Abell settled at Weymouth, Mass., where on October 19, 1630, his name appears on a petition, with others, to be made a "Freeman." He took the oath as Freeman on May 18, 1631. This act endowed him with full privileges and responsibilities of citizenship in the new colony, including ownership of lands, in the exercise of which he continued to acquire holdings, especially after his removal in 1643 to Rehoboth, a new settlement on the south side of the peninsula begun in 1642 by a party of colonists under the Reverend Samuel Newman, a minister at Weymouth for five years preceding. Robert Abell purchased the allotment first sold to Job Lane. His name appears frequently in public records up to the time of his death in 1663, including two appointments as keeper of the "Ordinary," from all of which it is reasonably to be assumed that he attained a position of considerable importance and was held in high esteem by his associates in the colony. In connection with the Inventory of his estate, administered by his widow Joanna, is mentioned his "eldest son," to whom was bequeathed the homestead, his "daughter Mary and five other children." His widow Joanna married William Hyde in 1667, and with her second husband moved to Norwich, Conn. Robert's eldest son, Preserved Abell, remained in Rehoboth, and his three other sons went to Norwich with their mother.

Probably all of the present day Abells of New England stock are descendants of Robert's three sons, Preserved, Caleb and Benjamin Abell. (I am through Caleb) His fourth son, Joshua, did not leave any male descendants.   The 22nd and 24th President of the United States, Grover Cleveland, descended through the line of Experience Abell and her husband John Hyde, and would be a 4th cousin to me. As a point of interest, this Abell genealogy is traced back from my grandmother, Mattie Akers, but the line links with the Varney family, who are the ancestors of my grandfather, Herbert Maxfield.   Frank Gifford is also found in the Abell genealogy.

Notes for CALEB ABELL: Sergt. Caleb Abell is first mentioned in the Colonial records at Dedham in 1665, petitioned for Freeman in Dedham, May 3, 1665; in 1668 moved to Norwich, Conn. In the original purchase of land when Norwich was settled, six acres having 16 rods front was assigned to Robert Wade, this he sold to Caleb Abell in 1677 and it was afterwards known as the Abell homestead. This property abutted on Town Street 16 rods, on the home lot of Morgan Bowers 72 rods, on the river 18 rods and on John Birchard land 74 rods. The location may be seen in a map on page 67 of "Caulkins' Norwich." On December 18, 1694 Caleb was appointed to keep his house as "an ordinari or of entertayment" for the year, or until another be chosen.

In 1697 Caleb and ten others were allowed to build a seat on the east side of the meeting house on the Leanto beams for their convenient sitting on the Lord's Days. Rev. Huntington's book of "Old Houses of the Ancient Town of Norwich" names 36 men whom he supposes to have been original proprietors; but one of these was Richard Wallis and another was Caleb Abell, who in 1660 was only 14 years of age. On May 2, 1728 Caleb deeded 12 1/4 acres of land to his daughter, Esperience Hide. On January 12, 1727-8 Caleb deeded to his son Noah his home lot, dwelling house and barn, all lands adjoining his home lot and lands over the river (Yantic) his pasture land lying northerly and northeasterly of William Hide dwelling house (which house was on the other side of Town Street and a little to the east) lying in two parcels, together with land on both sides of Bradford brook on north side of road leading to Lebanon, except 1 1/2 acres on south east of brook and land near Benjamin Abell's dwelling house which he gave to his son Samuel, reserving to himself and his wife Marey the dwelling house during his life and for hers after his decease, also liberty to his daughter Hannah to dwell in said house so long as she remains unmarried and a passageway across home lot to his son Samuel to Samuel's own land.

Caleb joined the first church of Norwich before 1701. He was Sergeant of the Norwich Train Band in 1701 and Selectman in 1682, Constable in 1684 and 1706 and Townsman in 1689. In the book of Grants in Norwich, there are 38 or more items to Caleb Abell.
