Birth*21 March 1709Abigail Bolton was born on 21 March 1709 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
(4th Daughter) Guardianship4 June 1722Abigail was a minor child of 12 and her brothers, Joseph and Nathaniel Bolton, were also minors when their father died on 21 December 1721. Joseph at age 17 and Nathaniel at age 15, both being under the age of 21 and above the age of 14 were, under the law, permitted to choose their own guardians. Both Joseph and Nathaniel chose their mother, Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and she was approved by the court on 4 June 1722. Abigail was under the age of 14 and, on the same date, the court appointed the children's mother guardian of Abigail, as well.

Sarah's guardianship duties to all three of her minor children, as instructed by the court, were to take them into her care and tuition until their majority at age 21. She was directed, for each child, to take into her hands and possession, to their benefit, their estates, lands, moneys, goods and chattels for the purpose of improving them in such a manner as she should judge best for them. She was also instructed to submit a plain and true account of her guardianship for each upon oath, and to include all and singular such estate that came into her hands and possession by virtue of her guardianship, and to account for the profits and improvements of each of the minor children's estates. She would be lawfully required to pay and deliver the accounting, and as much of the estate remaining, after first being examined and allowed by the appropriate judge, as each child reached the age of full majority.3,4
(4th Daughter) Estate and Land5 April 1723The personal estate of Abigail's father, John Bolton, late of Bridgewater, after the payment of debts and charges, was divided by agreement between Sarah, his widow, and their children.

A special committee of five good and sufficient freeholders, Josiah Edson Esq., Nathaniel Hayward, Joseph Edson, Nathaniel Brett and John Field, was appointed by Judge Isaac Winslow to determine a fair distribution of real estate that John Bolton died seized of in the County of Plymouth. The committee's task was completed on 5 April 1723 and included setting off the widow Sarah Bolton's Dower or Thirds of housing and lands, and also setting off an equitable portion or share of land for each of the couple's ten children, John Bolton Jr., Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth Bolton, Nicholas Bolton, Mary Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton, and Abigail Bolton.

Abigail Bolton, the couple's fourth daughter and youngest child, received the portion or share defined by the committee as Lot# 5. It was in the homelands, and was bounded northerly by the highway, and bounded north-westerly with the range of the 50 acres, and then ranging by the land of her eldest brother, John Bolton Jr., 12 rods to a stake, and then running from the stake north-east, and by north by a red oak marked on two sides in a straight range to the highway.5,6
(Sister) Land Transfer16 February 1730The surviving siblings of John Bolton Jr., all residing in Bridgewater and consisting of Nicholas Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton and Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth (Bolton) May and Abigail Bolton and their husbands, William Leonard and Michael May, children and heirs of John Bolton, late of Bridgewater, signed a deed agreement on 16 February 1730, registered on 13 March 1743, stating that their honored father, had in his lifetime, sold to their brother John Bolton Jr. of Bridgewater, yeoman, for a valuable consideration, a small parcel of land containing by estimation one acre and a half which lay adjoining to their brother's land where he then lived in Bridgewater. The land was described as beginning at a stake and heap of stones which was on bounds of his own land, then running northerly about 5 rods to a red oak tree marked on two sides and running still on the low range 6 rods and a half further to a stake and a heap of stones. From there running easterly about 20 rods (by a double red oak and a single red oak) to a rock by the side of the river, then bounded by the river upstream to John Bolton Jr.'s land. Then by his land to the bounds first mentioned. The deed then stated that, because their honored father did not give a deed to their brother, they separately and together, released all claim to the tract or parcel of land to their brother.7
(4th Daughter) Estate and Land25 September 1730Abigail's sister, Mary Bolton, had died intestate and the settlement and distribution of her real estate was completed on 25 September 1730. Mary's estate was divided into ten equal shares and distributed between her mother, Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and brothers and sisters, John Bolton, Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth (Bolton) May, Nicholas Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton, and Abigail Bolton.

A special committee of five freeholders consisting of Joseph Alden, whose land bordered the deceased's, and Joseph Edson, Eleazer Carver, Daniel Hudson and Jonathan Sprague had earlier been appointed by Judge Isaac Winslow on 15 June 1730 to inventory Mary's land and to determine, in their best judgment, an equitable division of her real estate, which they estimated to be 6 acres. Their recommendation, submitted to the court on 10 August 1730 and approved on 21 August 1730, distributed the lands into ten equal shares or lots.

Abigail's share was part of the lot identified as the eighth, ninth and tenth shares, which were distributed together as one larger lot to Abigail, her mother, the widow Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and to her older brother, Samuel Bolton. The lot was on the east end and joining to the lot distributed to Sarah's eldest daughter, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, and also joined to the southerly side of the easterly end of the lot distributed to her second daughter, Elizabeth (Bolton) May. The combined share contained about 18 rods of land, together with the Bolton house, and began at a stake and heap of stones which was at the south-east corner of the lot, and from there ranged north 30 degrees east 4 rods and 1/4 to a stake and heap of stones standing near an apple tree, and from there ranged south 56 degrees east 7 rods to a stake and heap of stones standing by the highway and bounded by the highway 8 rods to the bounds first mentioned at the south-east corner of the combined share.8,9
Marriage*11 May 1736She married Samuel Ripley, son of William Ripley and Mary Corbison, on 11 May 1736 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,10,11
(Sister) Will27 May 1755Abigail's brother John Bolton wrote a will dated 27 May 1755 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, in New England. His five daughters were his primary beneficiaries, and his will also directed that his sister Abigail, during her widowhood, to her improvement, should have the small west front room in his house and as much firewood as she wanted out of his home farm.12,13,14,1

Agnes Bolton1

b. 1728, d. 27 September 1768
Birth*1728Agnes Bolton was born in 1728 in Ireland.1
Research Notes* It is suspected that Agnes Bolton of Palmer belongs to one of the early immigrant Bolton families already being researched. William of Reading was thought to have come from Ireland and the brothers William of Windham and Thomas of Gorham, both having come to America from Tamlaght O'Crilly, Northern Ireland, each named a daughter Agnes.
Marriage*5 November 1754She married Hugh Smith, son of James Smith, on 5 November 1754 in Palmer, Hampshire County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
Research Notes*It is unclear if there were two daughters named Mary born to Agnes and Hugh Smith in Palmer, Hampshire County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). In the records for Palmer, two births are listed with identical birth dates and different years, 1765 and 1767. The 1765 date was noted as appearing on her grave stone and the 1767 date appears to have been transcribed from the original record. To further confuse the issue, two death dates are listed also. The one appearing to have been transcribed from the town records reports her death on 30 Jul 1767 and the other, obtained from her grave stone in Old Center Cemetery was noted as 20 Sep 1768, age 10 (or age 1 followed by an O and not a zero.)2
Death*27 September 1768She died the same day she gave birth to John on 27 September 1768 in Palmer, Hampshire County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). She was only 33.3,2
