Nathaniel Parsons, son of Philip and Anna Parsons, was born at Enfield, March 11, 1709-10. He or a son of the same name fought as a soldier in the French and Indian War in 1758 in Lieutenant David Parson's company, under General Phinehas Lyman, Third Company, First Regiment. He bought land on the Scantic River, January 26, 1728-29; and various other property at Enfield. Another Nathaniel Parsons appears to have lived at Enfield at the same time. He moved to Somers, Connecticut, and his wife Mary died there in her eighty-second year. They had a son, Stephen, born February 20, 1730-31. Nathaniel Parsons, son of Philip Parsons, married Alice Collins, January 29, 1735-36.

Alice (Collins) Parsons was born March 14, 1716, the daughter of the Rev. Nathaniel Collins, minister of the Enfield Church, who was graduated from Harvard College in 1697; married, in 1701, Alice Adams. She was the daughter of the Rev. William Adams, of Dedham, Massachusetts; and died February 19, 1755. The Rev. Nathaniel Collins was born June 13, 1681, died February 6, 1758. He was the son of the Rev. Nathaniel Collins who was born at Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 7, 1642, and died at Middletown, Connecticut, December 28, 1684; was graduated at Harvard College in 1660; and was ordained minister at Middletown, Connecticut, November 4, 1666. He was married August 3, 1664, to Mary Whiting, daughter of William Whiting. Deacon Edward Collins, father of the Rev. Nathaniel Collins, Sr., appearing in Cambridge as early as 1638; was deacon of the first church there. He was admitted a freeman, May 13, 1640; lived many years on Governor Cradock's plantation, which he finally purchased. He was deputy to the General Court for many years; died in Charleston, April 9, 1689; aged eighty-six years.

Alice (Adams) Collins was a descendant of Henry Adams, the immigrant, of Braintree, Massachusetts, ancestor of John Adams, and John Quincy Adams, presidents of the United States. Alice (Bradford) Adams, wife of the Rev. William Adams, was the daughter of Major William Bradford and of Alice (Richards) Bradford, a granddaughter of Governor William Bradford, and his wife, Alice (Carpenter) Bradford. Governor Bradford, the most distinguished of the "Mayflower" Pilgrims, was a son of William Bradford, of Yorkshire, England. Children of Nathaniel and Alice (Collins) Parsons, born in Enfield: Nathaniel; Asa, born February 4, 1742; Edward, born in 1745; died in Springfield; Ebenezer, born in 1748; William, born in 1750; Shubael, of further mention; and Alice.

Rev. Nathaniel Collins was the son of Edward and his wife Mary England

On the ship, The Defence, the Rev. Shepherd with several parishioners, including John Russell and Roger Harlakendon, set sail for New England in 1635. Accompanying them in this settlement was Mr. Edward Collins.

Edward Collins went on to establish himself in nearby Medford, where he acquired Gov. Craddock's massive estate, and later sold 1600 acres of his plantation to Richard Russell.
The first preserved documentation from England that Daniel Markham, born in June 1641, in Earls Colne, was the same as the Cambridge, MA. Resident is provided by the will of a Daniel Collins, written in 1639 and probated in 1643. In it, he leaves fifty pounds British currency to "the wife of Cousin Markham." In the same will, he mentions his brother, Samuel, Vicar of Braintree, and Edward Collins, "now in New England," and names several children of Edward Collins.

He also mentioned his mother was buried at Braintree. The town of Braintree is in Essex, next to Earls Colne. Daniel Collins referred to "the lease of the Dolphin." There is property named, "The Dolphin, in Halstead, which also borders Earls Colne. This same property is mentioned in the records of Earls Coln in association with other plots of ground, which have been identified with James Markham, which also was held by a John Collins prior to James Markham.

In 1670, Daniel Markham, then also of Medford, MA, was deposed to testify on behalf of
Edward Collins, plaintiff, involving an alleged theft of a mare and colt by a neighbor. During his testimony, he, Daniel, on several occasions referred to Mr. Collins as his uncle. The court reporter mentioned that the deponent, Daniel Markham, "was aged 25 years or thereabouts," which is consistent with the christening records of Earls Colne, which would put him at the age of 27 at this time. (Ref: Court records of Middlesex County, MA)

By his own words, as recorded in the MA Court records, Daniel Markham identified his uncle Edward Collins. From England, Daniel Collins, in his will, identified his cousin Markham (referring to James Markham and his wife Martha Collins) as his relative, Edward Collins, in New England. And, in Earls Colne, Essex, there is a documentation of the marriage of James Markham and Martha Collins, who had a son, Daniel, born in 1641.

More About These Family Connections

Captain Thomas Abbe, son of Thomas Abbe, Sr. and Mary Pease, married in Enfield, June 22, 1749, Penelope Terry, born in Enfield, February 5, 1729-30; died there December 5 1817.

Penelope Terry was the daughter of Dr. (or Captain) Ebenezer and Mary (Helms) Terry.

Children, born in Enfield Abigail Abbey, b. May 13, 1750; d. June 22, 1844. Resided in the east part of Enfield, CT. Married in Enfield, Nov. 1, 1770, Eliphalet Collins, b. in Enfield, July 11, 1744; d. May 22, 1815, son of Nathaniel and Abigail (Pease) Collins. 

Taken from the book, Abbe history: And then a murmuring of bees Broke in upon the house of prayer; And then a wind-song swept the trees, And then a snarl from wolfish lair; And then a charge of grenadiers, And then a flight of drum-beat cheers. So drum and doctrine rudely blent, The casements rattled strange accord; No mortal knew what either meant; "Twas double-grad and Holy Word, Thus saith the drum and thus the Lord. The captain raised so wild a rout He drummed the congregation out. The people gathered round amazed; The soldier bared his head and spoke, And every sentence burned and blazed, As trenchant as a sabre stroke: "Tis time to pick the flint to day, To sling the knapsack, and away! "The green of Lexington is red With British redcoats, brothers' blood! In rightful cause the earliest dead Are always best beloved of God. Mark time! Now let the march begin! All bound for Boston fall right in " Then rub-a-dub the drum jarred on, The throbbing role of battle beat; "Fall in, my men!" and one by one They rhymed the tune with heart and feet, And so they made a Sabbath march To glory 'neath the elm-tree arch. The Continental line unwound Along the Church-yard's breathless sod, And holier grew the hallowed ground Where Virtue slept and Valor trod, Two hundred strong that April day They rallied out and marched away. Brigaded there at Bunker Hill, Their names are writ on glories page. The brave old captain's Sunday drill Has drummed its way across the age.

The church around which Captain Abbey beat the long roll was completed in the January preceding, and stood near the present church. It was used as a church for the town until 1849, when it was bought by the town and moved to the west side of the street, where it now stands and has been used as a town hall ever since. A memorial to Captain Abbey and others of the family is about to be erected by Mr. Alden Freeman with his mother and sisters.

The Abbey Memorial will be on the Green in Enfield, on the site of the church out of which Captain Abbey drummed the congregation at the Lexington Alarm. The actual site of the old church is just in front of the present edifice. The design calls for a marble statue on a pedestal surrounded by four marble seats in the Greek style. On the backs of these seats are inscriptions commemorating the achievements of some of the best known descendants of the Abbey family, in the fields of war, literature and science. The sculptor, Sherry E. Fry, used as a model for the face and figure for the statue of Captain Abbey, a daguerreotype of his grandson, Seth Alden Abbey, taken at the same age.

Daniel C. French, sculptor of the "Minute Men" unveiled at Concord Bridge in 1875, has taken great interest in the work of Mr. Fry, and loaned him the simple Colonial suit used for the presentation of Captain Abbey.

The following is an extract from a letter written by Seth Alden Abbey to his son, Henry G. Abbey, dated June 15, 1872, telling something of Thomas Abbey: When a small boy, I was frequently at his house for a week at a time and have heard him tell many a thrilling tale of his hairbreadth escapes, hardships, sufferings, etc. During the French War he received a commission as Ensign in the Colonial troops and saw considerable service against the French and Indians. At the breaking out of the Revolution, a volunteer company was formed in his neighborhood and he was elected their captain and they were soon ordered to join Colonel Willett's Regiment in New York. I have heard him say, frequently, that he had chances of promotion, often, but his men would not consent to his leaving them. When a boy I saw many of his old soldiers who had served during the war; and the neighbors were as particular in addressing any of them, in giving them their title, as Corporal such a one, or Sergeant such a one, as they would be in addressing a General. Thomas Abbey died in 1811, and was as anxious for a fight with old England, which was then much talked of, just before his death, as in his younger days. He died suddenly with apoplexy.
