  • Notes 
    • Bassett-Preston Ancestors (citation details below) gives her the birth date of 20 Feb 1661. This source also states, evidently incorrectly, that her father married on 4 Jan 1651, as his second wife, Hannah Salter. That would make Hannah Salter the mother of Abigail Phillips, but evidently this is a result of confusion with a different Nicholas Phillips. To the best of our knowledge, Nicholas Phillips had only one wife, Elizabeth (not proven to have been Jenson or Jewson), and while she last appears on the record consenting to her husband's sale of some property on the 11th day of the 6th month, 1651, she could easily have lived quite some time after that.
