"ABIGAIL (nee ___?___ ) STOCKTON born c.1640, wife of Richard "The Emigrant" Stockton (c.1635-1707)
It appears that Abigail (nee ___?___ ) married Richard "The Emigrant" Stockton in Flushing, Long Island, New York. Abigail's maiden name, place of birth, and date of birth are not known. It appears that Richard and Abigail's last child was Elizabeth. She married William Budd Jr on 2 Dec 1702. The 1709 census of Northampton, Burlington County, New Jersey, shows Elizabeth (nee Stockton) Budd as 26 years old, so born c.1683. Budd family records show Elizabeth as born 8 Mar 1682. If Elizabeth was 20 years old when she married William Budd Jr she would have been born c.1682.
Although Abigail (nee ___?___ ) Stockton is commonly shown as born in 1630, that would make her about 52 years old when Elizabeth was born c.1682. It is very uncommon for women age 50 or more to give birth. If Abigail was born c.1640 she would have been about 42 years old when her last child Elizabeth was born. It appears that Abigail (nee ___?___ ) Stockton was probably born c.1640 and not c.1630. ..."
