    • Alternate death: Aft Nov 1638, Dedham, Norfolk, Massachusetts

    Notes:

    "Abraham Shaw, a clothier, came from Northowram, Halifax, Yorkshire, Eng., in the Anne, 1636, to Watertown, Mass. In Oct. 1636, his house and all his goods were burned and he removed to Dedham, where he had twelve acres and was called a planter. In Feb. 1637, he was granted 60 acres and the right to build a corn mill, and was one of the men appointed to govern the town. Freeman, 1637; constable, 1638. He married in Halifax, Eng., June 24, 1616, Bridget Best, who was bapt. Ovenden, Halifax, Eng., Apr. 9, 1592, daughter of Henry Best. Names of their children are from the church records of Halifax, Eng. He probably died in 1638, as his will was proved late in that year. It mentions his oldest son Joseph, dau. Mary, and calls John and Martha infants. His wife had died earlier." [Bassett-Preston Ancestors, citation details below]

    H. Minot Pitman's article "Abraham Shaw of Dedham," in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 106:50, January 1952, set forth evidence that this Abraham Shaw was the Abraham Shaw born out of wedlock to Abraham Dobson and Jenet Shaw. But M. L. Bierbrier's "The Origin of Abraham Shaw of Dedham" in The American Genealogist 57:85, 1981, documents an entirely different and much more plausible Halifax origin for the husband of Bridget Best, a man who clearly owned land (and at least one coal mine!) in Halifax and elsewhere. It may be that the union discussed in Pitman's article produced the different Abraham Shaw who was alive in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1641.

    Bierbrier's model is further proved in Russell Franklin Shaw's article "The English Ancestry of Abraham Shaw of Dedham, Massachusetts, 1590-1638", which appeared in The Genealogist 10:86, Spring 1989 (actually published 1994). Russell Franklin Shaw brings to bear a mass of evidence viewed in situ in Halifax, Yorkshire, much of it from registers and legal documents that have yet to be transcribed and made public.

    Abraham married Bridget Best on 24 Jun 1616 in Halifax, Yorkshire, England. Bridget (daughter of Henry Best and Grace Boithes) was born before 9 Apr 1592; died after 25 Sep 1635. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    She is called "Elizabeth Jewson" in several reasonably reputable sources, for instance the 1951 The American Genealogist article cited below, but we have been unable to find proof of this.
