    In The Ancestry of Phoebe Tilton (citation details below), Walter Goodwin Davis says of Henry Jacques' daughter Abigail "that she is not mentioned in the will of her father in 1686 makes her suggested marriage to Benjamin Knight, with no date given, very questionable." However, as a W. Harris points out in the comments to her Wikitree page, Henry's will does in fact mention her: "[A]nd to my daughter Abigail I give £60 to be paid by my executor after her marriage". She was thirteen when her father made her will, and fourteen when he died.
