Medieval English Ancestors of Robert Abell, Who Died in Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony, 20 June 1663, 2nd edition


With English Ancestral Lines of other Colonial Americans, Second Edition

While this work was intended to be limited to the ancestors of Robert1 Abell (of the line in Stapenhill in Derbyshire, England) who died in Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony, on 20 June 1663, it naturally includes the lines of many other colonial Americans, for whom connections will be found in David Faris’ Plantagenet Ancestry of Seventeenth-Century Colonists, Frederick Lewis Weis’ Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists, and Gary Boyd Roberts’ The Royal Descents of 600 Immigrants to the American Colonies and the United States.

This second edition includes more than eighty percent additional text, and 219 lines, forty-four percent more than the 152 lines in the first edition. Unlike the works of Faris, Weis and Roberts, it includes every line which could be discovered going back at least to the end of the reign of King Edward I in 1307, as well as historical background, and as much information on all the children which could be found in years of research. The eleven-page bibliography of the first edition has grown to sixty-two pages, due in large part to the availability of millions of books on the internet. In addition, this volume benefits from input from numerous genealogists over the more than fifteen years following the first edition. A glossary, a bibliography, an Index of Personal Names, and an Index of Place Names add to the value of this extensive work.
