"1. WILLIAM1 SABIN, the first progenitor, appeared in the town of Rehoboth, Mass., at the organization of the town in 1643. When he came to America is not known, but tradition says he came from Wales or the south of England, where he had found refuge in flight from France. He was a Huguenot, and was a man of considerable culture; and possessing wealth, as is shown in the account of his estate and gifts for the relieving of the wants of those who suffered from the ravages of Indians. He was one of the leading spirits of rehoboth in schools, church and in affairs at Plymouth. Who his first wife was we know not, but she died shortly after 1660. He married second, Martha (born Dec. 11, 1641, a twin sister of Mary), daughter of James and Anna Allen, of Medfield, Dec. 22, 1663. Martha was a sister of Nathaniel and Joseph Allen, who married daughters by the former wife. He died about 1687. His will was made June 4, 1685, and probated in Boston, July 17, 1687, during the administration of Gov. Andros. The original will is on file in Boston.
