                Abigail Hovey or Huxley?  Suffield v.r. gives Samuell Lane & Abigail Huxley published intention of marriage [   ] 7, 1709.  Banns forbidden by David Allen, May 12, 1709.  Then Samuel Lane & Abigail Hovey married Oct 6, 1709.  Hovey & Huxley are so close together was one of them a mistake?  Who is David Allen?  There was a David Allen that married Sarah Grosvenor 29 Nov 1711, they had a son David 9 Jan 1712/13.

 

                I have search all the records that I can find on the Hovey & Huxley Families and can not find an Abigail in either family that matches.  Could she have been widow Abigail Huxley or Hovey?  Both families were in Suffield at this time, there was a Sarah (Hovey) Wenchell, Abigail (Hovey) Austin and many Huxleys living in Suffield.
