Abigail Farnsworth, 9th child of Matthias Farnsworth and his wife Mary Farr
of Groton, MA
was born January 17, 1671 at Groton, MA. She married her cousin, John
Hutchins, son of
Nicholas Hutchins and his wife Elizabeth Farr who was a sister to her mother
Nicholas Hutchins</A>
The family of Nicholas Hutchins lived near the homestead of Matthias
Farnsworth and
Nicholas Hutchins and his son John Hutchins formed part of the Farnsworth
Garrison in

The marriage probably took place during the disturbed times when no records
could be
kept, or, if kept, have been destroyed. There is no records of marriages
from 1690 to
1706 at Groton, a period of sixteen years. Butler in his History of Groton
give the
names of John Hutchins' and Abigail Farnsworth's children:

John Hutchins and wife, Abigail Farnsworth had issue:
1. John Hutchins, Jr. b. Oct 13, 1693 [m. Abigail Whitney, Framingham: Torrey]

2. Joshua Hutchins b. Nov 5, 1697; m. July 12, 1722, Sarah Shedd

3. Abigail Hutchins b. Sept. 14, 1698.

4. Elizabeth Hutchins b. Sept. 6, 1700.

5. Benjamin Hutchins b. Aug 17, 1705.

This family probably moved from Groton early as they disappear entirely from
the town
records. There was a sixteen page pamphlet of the Hutchins published in
1885, and Hutchins
are found abundantly in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts and other
