ABRAHAM ANNIS was born March 4, 1708 at Newbury, Massachusetts; died 1787 at Salem, New Hampshire; married December 11, 1735, Abigail Sawyer {1709-1741} at Newbury, and had three children; married 2nd, December 28, 1742, Mary Hilton at Haverhill, Massachusetts, and had seven childre Abraham conducted a pottery at Newbury, on the Bradford Road near his father's house, and on September 29, 1737 sold "my house where I dwelled in Newbury, together with my Potter's Shop, with mill for grinding clay, with all the privileges and profits belonging to my house and shop and also 1/2 acre where my house standeth". He removed to Haverhill, MA where he reestablished his business. Abraham was a potter of distinction, and is mentioned in the book New England Potters and their Wares, by Laura W. Watkins. When a new state line was run in 1741, his property was set off into what would become Salem, New Hampshire, and the birth of his first three children are recorded both in Salem, New Hampshire and Haverhill, Massachusetts. At that time, there was some dissatisfaction in Salem with the way property was being appraised for taxes, and Abraham is mentioned in a petition of protest signed by many of Salem's residents.
