Abel Genealogy & History

Abel, an English-Scottish name popularized during the Crusades, is derived from the personal biblical name Abel/Hevel, the son of Adam murdered by his brother Cain, symbolizing suffering and innocence. Abel family history dates from feudal times in Kent in southeast England, and Abel name-holders were among the earliest settlers in North America: Robert Abel landed in Massachusetts in 1630 with the Winthrop fleet. The family motto, vive le roi, means long live the King; the three red boards heads on the coat of arms signify hospitality. Spelling variations in Abel genealogy are numerous: Abeal, Abeel, Abelle, Abill, Able, Habel, and the patronymic Abeles, Abelson and Ebelson.
