Abiel Williams1

(3rd Neighbor) Land Records23 February 1739Abiel Williams was described as a neighbor of the property when Zebulon Field, a Taunton husbandman, and his wife Anne Field made a 20-year lease agreement with William Leonard of Norton, cordwainer, on 23 February 1739 for a certain parcel of land meadow and upland lying on the easterly side of the Mill River in Taunton.2
(Witness to Deed) Land Records13 July 1739Abiel Williams witnessed the signature of Zebulon Field, a yeoman, and his wife Anne Field when they sold land in Taunton, Bristol County, to William Leonard, a cordwainer, on 13 July 1739.3
(Relative) Relationship NoteBased upon the proximity of their properties in Taunton, there was very likely a sibling or other close family relationship between Abiel Williams, Anne (Williams) Field and James Williams.3
(3rd Neighbor) Land Records3 December 1750Abiel was again described as a neighbor eleven years after Zebulon Field and his first wife Anne Field had leased property, for a period of 20 years, on the east side of the Mill River in Taunton to William Leonard, a Taunton cordwainer, when William Leonard and his wife Sarah Leonard made a sub-lease agreement on 3 December 1750, with their son James Leonard 4th "so called", also a cordwainer of Taunton. The sub-lease agreement restated the original expiration date of 23 February 1759 and was recorded on 13 December 1750.1
