(Wife) DeathApril 1676Abigail became a widow when Samuel Wadsworth was killed while fighting Indians at Sudbury, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), in April 1676.1,4
Land Grant*1683 About 1683, Abigail (Lindall) Wadsworth, widow of Samuel, and her brother-in-law Joseph Wadsworth, each received two lots, or shares, when another division of land was laid out in Bridgewater. Each received one lot on the north side of the town center and Samuel's widow, Abigail, received her other lot on the east side, while Joseph's other lot was on the west side. Mitchell, in his Early History of Bridgewater, noted that all of the recipients of these proprietary shares were inhabitants of the town, except the Wadsworths, Samuel and Joseph, who "retained their shares much longer than any of the other non-residents, and were the last of the Duxbury proprietors to relinquish them."5
Marriage*She married second Thomas Rawlins.6,7
Death*1687She may have died in 1687.1
(Grantor's Wife) Land RecordsAn undated land transaction recorded in the original purchase record books of Bridgewater stated that John Bolton had purchased two fifty acre lots from Samuel Wadsworth of Duxbury. The lots were described as lying on each side of the land of Israel Alger.

It is believed this transaction took place after Samuel Wadsworth's death in 1676 and that the lots were likely the lots his widow Abigail (Lindall) Wadsworth had received about 1683.8

James Lindall1

(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656James Lindall, his surname spelled LENDALL, was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. James Lindall was one of those who never relocated his family and moved to Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share.
