I read your post concerning the Abbot's of NH. I have numerous Abbot's and Chandlers and their English origins in my tree dating back to 1615. The majority of my Abbot's lived in/near Andover Mass and some are connected to the Dane family also of England. My tree for this branch stops in the mid 1800's. Have nothing on them for the late 19th century, early 20th century. Maybe we are distantly connected in some fashion. Are there any How/Howe's in your tree?
