Abigail, b. say 1621 in Leyden, Holland, ("eldest daughter" in father's will) came to America with her family aboard the 'Little James" in 1623. She married Henry Wood in Plymouth on April 28, 1644. [1] [2][3]

Henry and Abigail moved to Yarmouth, as their two oldest children, Sarah and Samuel, were born there. Their other ten children were born in Plymouth. Husband Henry died before September 30, 1670, the date the inventory of his estate was taken. She died after July 23, 1674, when she entered into an agreement with her children about Henry's estate.[4]
