Note1664 In 1664, Andrew Ford of Weymouth and his brother-in-law James Lovell purchased 200 acres of land in Plymouth Colony known as the Souther Grant. Andrew's portion became known as Ford's Farms. The first settler on Ford's Farms was Andrew Ford, Jr., who built a house at what is now the intersection of Washington St. and Adams St. in about 1679. Andrew Jr. was followed by his brothers James, Ebenezer and Samuel.

The inhabitants of what is now Abington petitioned the General Court for incorporation in 1706, but the petition was denied, primarily because there was no minister settled there. In 1711 Rev. Samuel Brown was engaged as minister, and a new petition was successful. Abington was incorporated on June 10, 1712, from Ford's Farms, certain lands adjoining, and part of northeastern Bridgewater.
