Abigail Kimball, daughter of Richard Kimball and Ursula Scott, was born probably shortly before her baptism at Hitcham Parish, Suffolk, England, 5 November 1617.1 She died at Salisbury, Essex Co., Massachusetts, 17 June 1658.2

Abigail married John Severance, whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), perhaps at England, about 1636.1,3,4

Abigail Kimball is possibly the one baptized at Hitcham as given above. Abigail is not listed in the passenger list with her family, so may have already married John Severance, and came with him to New England by 1636.5
