Abigail was born in 1647. She was the daughter of Joseph Andrews and Elizabeth Hatch.[1][2]

Abigail married John Wadsworth on July 25, 1667.[3]

On July 21, 1684, John Wadsworth and his wife Abigail, both of Duxbury, sold land of the same description as the "calves pasture" to her brother-in-law, Jared Talbut.[2]

Abigail (Andrews) Wadsworth died at midnight between the 24th and 25th day of November 1723, in Duxbury.[4] She is buried in Milton Cemetery, Norfolk County, Massachusetts.[5]
