Abijah Wines is mentioned in the History of Newport New Hampshire by Wheeler:

"Abijah Wines, D.D., son of Abijah; born in Southold, Long Island, May 28, 1766. At the age of fifteen he came with his father's family to Newport. At the age of twenty he married Ruth, daughter of Hon. Benjamin Giles. Both inheriting considerable property, they built the house now known as the Fred. Aiken house, where they commenced farming on a somewhat extensive scale. After a brief period, and after two children had been born to them, he experienced a change in his religious views, and determined to enter the ministry. He accordingly commenced his preparatory course of study, entered Dartmouth college as a sophomore, and graduated in 1794. He studied theology with Rev. Dr. Emmons, of Franklin, Mass., then one of the most eminent divines of New England. Completing his theological course, Mr. Wines returned to Newport, where, the Congregational church being vacant, he was invited to supply the pulpit. Contrary to the proverb that a prophet is not without honor save in his own country, he proved so acceptable that he was invited to become their pastor. He accepted the invitation, and was ordained in 1796, continuing its pastor for twenty years. The church prospered under his ministry. He was one of the founders and a trustee of the N.H. Missionary Society, and also trustee of Kimball Union Academy. He fitted several young men for college, and aided others in their theological studies. In 1816 he was appointed Professor of Theology in the Bangor Theological Seminary. At the end of one year he closed his connection with this institution, and commenced preaching at Deer Island, where he continued for the space of twelve years. He died Feb. 11, 1833, aged 67 years. his father d. Jan. 24, aged 82 years."
